The boys have been able to get PSC working nicely on the GIGABYTE Z97X SOC FORCE, this has resulted in a new... (insert drum-roll here)
PIFAST WORLD RECORD
The record was achieved with a set of Patriot PSC cooled with Liquid Nitrogen and a 4770K CPU. We powered the rig with the latest Corsair AX 1500W power supply and of course used EK heat spreaders on the memory.
Another record brought to your friendly local OC team.

Last weekend we began the pre-pre-testing for our upcoming pre-testing of the Aquamark3 benchmark. We were lucky enough to break the AM3 world record with 593932 points, beating the previous mark (and very good record btw) by nearly 8000 points.
We used the following system for the record:
- 4770K CPU on LN2 cooling
- ASUS 980X Strix GPU on stock cooling
- Gigabyte Z97X SOC Force motherboard
- Patriot 2400 MHz PSC memory on LN2 cooling
- EK SF3D heat spreaders on the ram
- Corsair AX1500i
We will have another crack at this soon and see if we can sneak up to the 600,000 mark

GIGABYTE are now renowned for their overclocking series of boards that manage not only to appeal to the extreme overclocker, but also the serious gamer or power user. The Z87 and Z97 boards managed to achieve this, and now for the first time since X58 the OC line-up has come back to an X chipset, Intel’s “main” platform, X99.
