GIGABYTE X99 GAMING-5P

X99 Gaming 5P

Here with me, is one of GIGABYTE’s latest X99 motherboard. Specifically, the GAMING 5P that is as you’ve guessed by now, part of the CHAMPION series. If you’re unfamiliar with the CHAMPION series, it is simply the re-engineered X99 motherboard family featuring the newer 2083 pin CPU socket or better known as “the OC-Socket”. What this socket does, is primarily allow better memory overclocking and support whilst unlocking the Uncore frequencies past the 3500MHz limit of previous iterations. It is in a way a silent admission by GIGABYTE that the previous motherboards,  were not up to the standard they would have wanted. It is a do-over but one not treated as such publicly and in fact with this particular model there’s some sense to that in the following ways.

 GeIL SUPER LUCE DDR4 3400

 

In early 2015, we had a handful of high-speed DDR4 kits from just about all reputable performance memory vendors. The first half of 2015 had these kits listed on online retail stores but they were rarely available to buy. Perpetually out of stock or just announced via press releases, with no real availability. Seemingly, it was just enough to state that a certain kit exists, even though in practice it actually did not. It is in light of this that I was skeptical about GeIL unveiling their Super LUCE memory modules rated at 3400MHz. Keep in mind at the time, the only other 3,400MHz kit on the market was from CORSAIR and that kit was a cool $999 USD.
