Extreme overclockers break records with new MSI X99 motherboard

At Computex yesterday, MSI revealed its latest X99 motherboard, the ‘X99A Godlike Gaming’ and it is already off to a great start as overclockers have already managed to break records with the board. Renowned overclockers, Benchbros, Wizerty, Vivi and Zzolio, broke seven top global scores and hardware records in total during the G.Skill Overclocking World Record event.

This was the fourth annual G.Skill overclocking event, at which, the MSI X99A Godlike Gaming motherboard was used to pave the way for these record breaking overclocks.

In addition the MSI X99A XPOWER AC motherboard managed to hit a new milestone, being the first motherboard used to push DDR4 memory past the 4400 Mhz barrier. All of these performance breaking scores were achieved live at Computex on the first day of the event, which is quite a way to kick things off.
