Gigabyte X99 SOC Champion, Budget Overclocker?

Testing & Methodology

Before we began testing the Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion the test system was formatted, and Windows 8.1 x64 was installed. When the Windows installation was complete, we fully updated the OS, and installed the drivers necessary for our components. Auto-Updating and Windows Defender were then disabled and we installed all of our benchmarking software, performed a disk clean-up, cleared any prefetch and temp data, and ran the tests. Each test was ran 3 times  then we averaged the three runs and report that average here. If any one run was to far out of range we toss the errant score and run the test again.
