Default Gigabyte Open Overclocking Championship 2009

The North American regional final of Gigabyte's GO OC 09 overclocking championship took place this past weekend in the City of Industry, and we were there to take it all in. Although no world records were broken, no one disagrees that it was an exciting event, and the result is one lucky overclocker who's now getting ready to head to Taipei for the final.

You can read our coverage here and discuss it here!

Heh, well I guess that's one way to get rid of old and outdated Core i7 965 "ES" samples, donate them to an OC competition!

I do like how Gigabyte arranged the competition around a midrange board and midrange GPU, and not the absolute best they offer.

I could not agree with you more on that. It puts their hardware's capabilities into perspective and opens up that potential to the budget minded masses.
