Gigabyte Taiwan has officially opened their OC Lab at the 4th floor in their Headquarters, and it looks all new and shiny!
The setup has been so nicely that any extreme overclocker will appreciate the money, time and effort being put up to put a lab dedicated for overclocking by a company. The lab is divided into 3 dedicated OC stations which can accommodate upto six overclockers, a mini-bar and a seating area but a whiteboard for team discussions and brainstorming, together with a very large thank of Liquid Nitrogen tucked in a corner and closet big enough to hold a lot of motherboards and other PC components.
With a lab like this, one shouldn’t be surprised if a lot of people end up spending few days in the lab and doing their thing.
This all happened because of HiCookie who works very hard to get his opinions and his dreams heard. HiCookie joined Gigabyte as technical marketing in 2006 and since then overclocking as evolved from a time when companies were afraid to talk about certain technical aspected about a product, to brands with a dedicated staff who can and will satisfy the overclocking community with different skillsets.
Its because of this evolutionary process that lead one after the other, the community has grown where even companies work with overclockers, whether they’re officially employed or not.
For those who wish to see the video of the lab, can do so over here.
