    Just a few months back Gigabyte launched its flagship motherboard, the Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce for a whopping $900. And for those of you who thought the motherboard or its price wasn’t already extreme enough by itself then Gigabyte is going a step further as the company has announced that they will be offering their Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce in the form of a bundle known as the Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce 5G for an eye-watering price tag of $1600.

    The bundle will include the Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce motherboard paired with a pre-binned Core i9-9900K. The Core i9-9900K included in the bundle are cherry-picked and only the ones that can maintain a stable 5.1GHz on all cores are chosen.

    Also to make things as easy as possible Gigabyte has pre-tuned the BIOS so that users don’t need to configure the settings for all cores hitting 5.1GHz or higher while overclocking. These settings consist of the following:

    • CPU multiplier: 51
    • BCLK: 100
    • CPU vCore: Auto
    • Loadline Calibration: Auto
    • XMP: Disable

    Most users buying the bundle should be able to hit the claimed speed out of the box unless there is a problem elsewhere in the system.
