GIGABYTE Announces “Initial K” Contest Winners on HWBOT  - GIGABYTE Announces “Initial K” Contest Winners on HWBOT
Thu, May 26 2011 | 3:07PM | Filed under: Overclocking| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and other computing hardware solutions today announced the winners of the “Initial K” overclocking competition hosted on, with SuicidePhoenix the winner, and CoolBits and Mad22 coming in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Since this is the year of the rabbit in Asian astrology which symbolizes "quick" and the Easter bunny made his appearance in the West in April, we thought it would be fun to have a challenge to see just how quick overclockers were with our P67 motherboards.
As the title of the contest suggests, the GIGABYTE "Initial K Contest" focused on Intel’s K sku CPUs.

Split into 6 stages including Max CPU Clock, SuperPI 1M, SuperPI 32M, Wprime 32M, Wprime 1024M and Pifast. Contestants who placed in the top eight for each stage received points and the top 3 point earners after all 6 stages were declared the winners. Congratulations to the winners. As competition winner, SuicidePhoenix will receive a GIGABYTE X58A-OC motherboard, with Coolbits and Mad222 receiving GIGABYTE P67A-D3-B3 motherboards as runners up.
