GIGABYTE TECHNOLGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced its latest overclocking competition in conjunction with HWBOT.org, the GIGABYTE ‘High on Ivy Contest’.

Calling all HWBot members! From June 1st to June 30th, GIGABYTE invites you to push your unlocked Ivy Bridge processors as high as you possibly can, with a chance to win a next-generation GIGABYTE motherboard. The rules are simple; take any GIGABYTE Z77 board and aim for the highest scores possible across four unrelenting stages.

Contest winners will be among the very first to get their hands on currently ‘top-secret’ GIGABYTE motherboards, due to be announced later this month, with prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes. Although we can’t tell you too much at this stage, we can tell you that these motherboards will be designed specifically with record-breaking in mind!

GIGABYTE ‘High on Ivy Contest’ Stages:
  • Stage 1: Maximum CPUz CPU Frequency Validation
  • Stage 2: Maximum CPUz DDR3 Speed Validation
  • Stage 3: SuperPi 32M
  • Stage 4: Wprime 1024M
The GIGABYTE ‘High on Ivy Bridge’ contest will run for one month, from June 1st 2012 with final score submissions on June 30th 2012. Note: In the event of a tied score, the best SuperPi 32M score will determine the winner.
