The Intel® USB 3.1 controller utilizes 2 PCIe Gen3 lanes, offering a total of up to 16Gb/s, which means you have extra bandwidth to take full control of the 10Gb/s USB 3.1 ports. With twice the bandwidth compared to its previous generation, and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 3.0, the much improved USB 3.1 protocol is available over the new reversible USB Type-C™ and the traditional USB Standard-A connector for better compatibility over a wider range of devices.
 
 

Connecting the Future - USB Type-C™:
The World's Next Universal Connector
Reversible USB Type-C™ with USB 3.1
The USB Type-C™ is a new reversible connector that is loaded with useful features such as USB 3.1 support for 10Gb/s transfer speed. Powered by the Intel® USB 3.1 controller, this little port provides the best USB Type-C™ experience possible.

 
 
 
Extreme 4-Way SLI™/ CrossFire™ Multi-Graphics Support with OC Brace
The GIGABYTE Z170X-SOC Force motherboard features optimized support for NVIDIA SLI™ and AMD CrossFire™ in 4 way configuration setups. This extreme design is optimized for overclockers with the innovative OC Brace to stabilize the graphics cards without the need of a system case, ensuring their proper connectivity to the motherboard.
 
 



Triple PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 Connectors
With three PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 connectors onboard, GIGABYTE brings to the user PCI-Express connectivity for SSD devices. Delivering up to 32 Gb/s data transfer speed per connector, the triple M.2 provides an ideal storage solution as it also supports RAID modes.
 
 
 
 
Exclusive OC Touch with Metal Shielding Design
GIGABYTE OC Touch includes a range of hardware overclocking buttons directly on the motherboard, making overclocking on the fly extremely fast and easy.
 
 
 

OC Ignition
OC Ignition maintains power to the motherboard and connected components while the system is shut down. This means that system fans will continue to provide airflow in cold bug situations, while i-RAM drive users will not lose installed data. OC Ignition also allows users to pre-test water cooling setups, and allows case mod demonstrations without having to turn on the PC.
• Fans continue to provide airflow in cold bug situations
• Perfect for pre-testing water-cooled system setups
• Case mod demonstrations without having to turn on the PC
• Retains i-RAM data
 
 
OC PCIe Switch
Overclockers can manually turn on or off each installed PCIe lane of the motherboard, allowing users to disable individual graphics cards without physically removing them. This is especially useful when overclocking on LN2 and water cooled systems.

 
 
 
115dB High Definition Audio Design
The Realtek ALC1150 is a high-performance multi-channel high definition audio codec that delivers an exceptional audio listening experience with up to 115dB SNR, ensuring users get the best possible audio quality from their PC.
High Quality audio capacitors deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for professional gamers.

 

 
Ambient LED
LED lighting for the audio guard path provides a cool, custom look to your rig. Not only does the Audio Noise Guard protect the board's sensitive analog audio components, but its LEDs can also be programed to beat at the rhythm of the music you are listening to, or pulse at a soothing pace to create a great atmosphere to enhance the environment of your game, movie or music.
 
 
OC PEG
OC PEG adds auxiliary power to the PCIe slots of your motherboard, improving system stability in extreme configurations. This is especially useful in power-hungry 4-way graphics configurations.

 
 
OC Connect
OC Connect positions two USB connectors on the near side of the motherboard facing the overclocker. This makes it easier to save data, flash the BIOS or install software in open bench testing platforms whether for extreme overclocking or simply pretesting the PC before final component installation inside a case scenarios where accessing the rear panel I/O can be an inconvenience.

 
 
Turbo B-Clock
Built-in Advanced Performance Tuning IC
 
Thanks to the onboard TURBO B-Clock Tuning IC, GIGABYTE Motherboards enable Overclockers to have the ability to change their BCLK Frequency to a desired value of their choice. With the new linear range adjustment option of the Tuning IC, ranges from 90MHz to 500MHz are now possible, so that overclockers are not limited to the 5% ranges of traditional straps.

*Turbo B-Clock overcloking range may vary according to CPU capabilities .
 
 

GIGABYTE HW OC APP

With the HW OC APP, users now have the opportunity to overclock their system from a mobile device at the BIOS level without the need to leave their ongoing session. Using Android or Apple mobile devices, the HW OC APP can help you change the CPU frequency as well as an array of voltages to your desire in order to achieve the best performance on the go.




 
How HW OC APP Works:
• Download the HW OC APP to your mobile device and plug it to your system via the dedicated USB port.
• Turn on USB Tethering on your mobile device and press the OC APP Switch Button on the back panel of the Z170X-SOC Force.
• Change the available values to overclock your system!

 
 
 

 
Industry Leading Ultra Durable™ PCIe Metal Shielding
The innovative one piece stainless steel shielding design from GIGABYTE reinforces the PCIe connectors to provide the extra strength required to support heavy graphics cards.
 
 
Intel® GbE LAN with cFosSpeed
The Intel® Gigabit LAN with cFosSpeed features advanced technology to help deliver better network responsiveness in crowded LAN environments and allows optimization and improved network performance for specific applications, making it a popular choice amongst gamers.
 
 



Q-Flash Plus
GIGABYTE Q-Flash Plus allows users to update to the latest BIOS using a thumb drive without the CPU or Memory needing to be installed.
 
Updating your BIOS on your GIGABYTE motherboard can be done in a flash – even without memory or CPU onboard. Utilizing the EC Controller, the BIOS on your GIGABYTE Motherboard can now be updated through Q-Flash Plus even if your system is unable to boot. An LED next to the EC controller will notify you once the procedure is complete and you are ready to boot your system normally.

* USB thumb drive not included.
 
 
22 Phases Digital Power Delivery Design
For its 100 series motherboards, GIGABYTE features a 22 phase power delivery design equipped with 4th gen. IR® digital power controllers and 3rd gen. PowIRstage® ICs featuring Isense technology, which provides more precise current sensing accuracy. This helps evenly distribute the thermal loading between the PowerIRstage® ICs, preventing the overheating of each individual PowerIRstage®, resulting in longer lifespan and better reliability.
