Interview with GIGABYTE's Tim Handley on GOOC, X79A-OC and general overclocking stuff

No idea how I missed this interview! GOOC, X79A-OC, overclocking, ... it's ALL in there!

This Monday, Gigabyte Global Deputy Director Marketing Head Tim Handley came over to Delhi, India for Annual Conference, and we were Invited to have a chat with him. So we went prepared for a 15min. discussion and though I am late everywhere else, I came on time for this meeting and we had a free-wheeling discussion ranging various topics, so much so that our conversation went on for more than an hour. Audio is almost untouched, so please do not mind the casual tone though it has been reduced quite a bit to avoid boredom, . There were no set topic and it ranged from :

Topics:
1) Marketing Strategies of Gigabyte
2) Dates for GOOC 2011
3) Promoting Overclocking in India
4) Plans for X79
5) Z68 Platform
6) Freewheeling chat about Hicookie, Dinos, Vivi, Shamino, Vince, 3D01, Abit, DFI, Sapphire,

Nice find Pieter, some good info there :D :D Just a bit of a concern though, somewhere around the 38th minutes or so I overheard Tim said "please don't put this online" * or maybe it's just my ears deceiving me.. *

Good to know that m8 :) Nice interview btw :D :D

It seems India's Overclockers is not so much different with Indonesia's overclockers, more price-performance oriented, and most of them were still using air as their main coolers (only few attempted extreme overclocking).

Best of luck in establishing overclocking community in India bro ;) ;)

I tried listening to the audio recording... unfortunately the volume dives so extremely low sometimes that getting track on when they even talk is close to impossible...

Anyone that can please resume what is actually being said? Please some of you guys who actually attended this meeting.

Sad part in India is, a lot of teenagers/youngsters have interest in extreme overclocking but no money, by the time they earn money they become realistic and consider it a waste of money, :p

Yeah there are times when words were spoken in a hush hush way. You need a transcript of the audio, :p
