GIGABYTE Announces Winners of the GIGABYTE H55 Mini-ITX Overclocking Contest  - GIGABYTE Announces Winners of the GIGABYTE H55 Mini-ITX Overclocking Contest

 GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and other computing hardware solutions today proudly announced Taiwanese overclocker, Nick Shih as the winner of the GIGABYTE H55 Mini-ITX contest hosted by HWBOT. Nick scored a total of 13 points using a GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3 motherboard.

The GIGABYTE H55 Mini-ITX contest set a new milestone in the overclocking community as the first Mini-ITX motherboard only online overclocking contest. In addition, this ground-breaking competition was held for the love of overclocking and not for the love of prizes, so there is no prize for the winner. Instead, the winner will have the honor of being the world’s first Mini-ITX overclocking champion.


The contest was split into 2 categories running the Super Pi 32m benchmark: Stage 1 had a CPU speed limit of 4,000 MHz, and Stage 2 had no CPU speed limit. At the end of August, Nick Shih led the competition with a blazing CPU speed of 6.4GHz reaching 6min 18sec 469ms in the Stage 2 category. A fantastic achievement!

Instead of a prize for the winner there were three GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard lucky draw prizes for various categories of participants: the stage 1 category lucky winner is Ross from the USA, while the stage 2 lucky winner is ME4ME from Sweden. The final lucky draw, the fans voting category, was won by 1Day who, remarkably is one of a limited number of female overclockers and scored a respectable 7min 21sec 453ms in the Stage 2 category of the competition.

With a name like Zalman has with us, overclockers and modders alike, we expect the best from such a great company. Zalman is one of the companies that mixes beauty and performance at a level that only they can do. The CNPS9900LED CPU cooler is no exception to Zalman's continuation of perfection, with superb performance. I am going see just how far a Core i7 920 CPU can go while using this CPU cooler. The results will surprise you.
