New chipset is out and we’ve been working hard to get some stable version of various benchmarking software and bios for the new platform. If you got yourself one of these GIGABYTE X99-SOC FORCE boards (or for that matter any others in the range), you can now use the following tools to improve your overclocking efficiency.
Gigabyte Tweak Launcher (GTL2.1 version B14.0822.1): allows real time voltage/parameters changes in windows as well as launch profiles
MemTweak software: allows real time memory timings changes in windows
Chipset update for Windows 7/8
OC Button Driver (driver to use OC Touch buttons on the OC motherboard)
Windows XP ME support (need to install this to be able to change base clock in Windows XP)
CPUz that loads a lot faster than regular version (handy for X99 due to slow loading)
Latest bios for various motherboards
X99-SOC Force: F5c
X99-Gaming G1 WIFI: F7b
X99-Gaming 7 WIFI: F5b
X99-Gaming 5: F6c
X99-UD5 WIFI: F7b

GIGABYTE X99 motherboards feature LED lighting for the audio guard light path and the back panel LED, providing a cool, custom look to your rig. These lights are now programmable, so you can have them beat to the rhythm of the music you are listening to, or pulse at a soothing pace to create a great atmosphere to enhance the environment of your game, movie or music. You can also turn them off if you are wanting to get some shuteye.

Hey everyone. While GIGABYTE X99 series motherboards are quickly approaching launch, we thought we’d share another teaser pic, this time from our upcoming X99-UD4 motherboard. Even the UD4 is looking sharp in my biased opinion with the LED lighting and heatsinks.
