Kaby Lake Performance

The AVA Z270 Scorpio features an Intel Core Kaby Lake processor and Z270 Chipset. This latest Intel technology not only increases clock speed, but includes thermal improvements and new features like Speed Shift. Together these advancements boost the performance of both CPU and graphics-heavy workloads.

Kaby Lake Overclocking Liquid Cooling

Liquid Cooled and Overclocked

The thermal improvements in Kaby Lake processors and the handcrafted hardline liquid cooling allows the overclocking experts at AVADirect push the limits of both the CPU and GPU to deliver gaming performance beyond what was possible with Skylake, while providing a stable and reliable experience.

Hardline Liquid-Cooling

The hardline liquid-cooling system was handcrafted by the liquid-cooling experts at AVADirect. The bent, rigid tubing optimizes coolant flow, keeping the processor and graphics cards at low temperatures, which allowed this system to be overclocked beyond what can be accomplished when using typical liquid-cooling loops. Our cooling systems allow ultimate gaming performance to be experienced with both high resolutions and framerates. With low temperatures, each component will last longer thanks to reduced thermal stress.

Extreme Overclocking

The low temperatures achieved, thanks to the custom hardline liquid-cooling loop, allowed the overclocking experts at AVADirect to push the capabilities of the Intel Core i7-7700K processor and the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition graphics cards. Thanks to the onboard TURBO B-Clock Tuning IC on the Gigabyte Aorus GA-Z270X-GAMING 7 motherboard the processor has been fine-tuned for performance, stability, longevity and reliability.

Customized for Performance

A small team of experts at AVADirect and Gigabyte worked tirelessly to build the AVA Z270 Scorpio. This system was developed to showcase the advanced Aorus GA-Z270X-GAMING 7 motherboard integrated with a powerfully overclocked Kaby Lake Intel processor. Customized for performance, the AVA Z270 Scorpio also features two 1080 graphics cards in SLI, 64 GB of DDR4 memory, and Intel’s 512GB 6000P SSD.
