Gigabyte’s ‘Beat The Heat 2017’ OC Competition Starting July

GIGABYTE X99 Gaming 5P Motherboard Review 1

GIGABYTE is excited to kick-off Beat The Heat 2017, an overclocking contest held by GIGABYTE and hosted on HWBOT. We are turning up the heat for the overclocking community with a prize pool of $2,500+ USD of computer gear desired by any enthusiast.

Summer break may be on the way, but we still have one last roll of the dice before we decide to leave the house, get sunburnt and come back in for some RnR and more OC! This competition will have four stages that will test your computer’s 2D processing: XTU 5GHz, GPUPI for CPU–1B 5GHz, Geekbencch3 Single–Core 5GHz, HWBOT x265 Benchmark–4k 5GHz. In each of the four stages participants can score points based on their benchmark scores. The two participants with most points will win the prizes!
