Until the end of this month GIGABYTE is hosting the GIGABYTE Z97 Last Hurrah Challenge overclocking competition at OC-ESPORTS. The competition kicked off on July 10th, almost a month before the launch of Intel's
sixth generation new Skylake platform. The two main featured prizes were, until today, known as "mystery motherboards". Until today!
What's up for grabs, in case you win, are TWO Z170X-SOC Force motherboards. The orange board displayed in the four hundred pixel wide hyperlinked thumbnail on your left, or as leaked a while ago, and as used by Hicookie in his DDR4-4800 barrier breaching adventures, is ready for the latest delidable i7 6700K and i5 6600K. For those who forgot, here's a brief competition overview:
"GIGABYTE is hosting another great competition for the overclocking community with the GIGABYTE Z97-Last Hurrah Challenge, to be hosted this July and August by HWBOT. This new challenge gives the community a last chance to test their skills on the GIGABYTE Z97 platform before the next series of motherboards comes around. By participating, overclockers have the chance to win $2,000 USD in cash prizes and two Z170X-SOC Force motherboards!"
The best part? There's one for the best ambient overclocker as well as one for the best extreme overclocker. Click on the link to find out more, or stick around and drool all over the sexy thumbnail picture (we recommend the former). Good luck everyone!
