The GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC comes in a black and orange box which is quite similar to the one last year’s OC motherboard came in. However, this time GIGABYTE has also put an orange F1 racing car with GOOC logo (GIGABYTE Open Overclocking Competition) which gives a clear idea that this motherboard is meant for overclocking competitions. Back of the box explains some of the salient features of the motherboard, especially the ones related to overclocking.
The Z97X-SOC comes with a rather simple accessory package which helps in keeping the costs low as well as making it clear that this is no bling-bling product but something that’s true to its purpose.
