GIGABYTE motherboard team donates some X58A-UD3R boards for a good cause

A very nice gesture of the GIGABYTE mainboard division to give away some boards for the crunchers under us. I'm sure the boards will serve well in the fight against cancer. Triple thumbs up!

A good friend of mine, Dave, known better as movieman on XtremeSystems, is a strong supporter of finding a cure for cancer and other diseases by "crunching" numbers on "World Community Grid" or WCG. He mentioned in one of our chats that if GIGABYTE was to have some spare boards around he would find them a good home with people dedicated to the cause. GIGABYTE sent 6x WCG members our X58A-UD3R(rev2.0) boards and they have already been put to good use and are crunching away as we speak.

What is WCG you ask? Please pop over to XS forum and read some more. If you like what you see and want to help the humanity with your unused computing power you can join the team and start crunching yourself.

it's "only" a '99 996 Carrera 2, but soon it's about to get "overcloked" as well. :D
haha, a GT3 would be nice, but a good one with low mileage is very expensive here. :D

When your done overclocking it, it would be a tight race with my bike, i think. :)
