We thought we’d switch things up a bit for this month’s contest. There will be 2 main challenges both using any GIGABYTE Z77 motherboard. The first challenge is 3Dmark01 (multi-GPU is OK). The highest score wins a new GIGABYTE X79S-UP5 motherboard featuring our new Ultra Durable™ 5 technology and SAS hard drive support (amongst many others).

The second challenge is SuperPi 32M fixed at 4.5GHz. The lowest time submitted will be named the winner and will receive a GIGABYTE X79-UP4 motherboard.

To make things a little more interesting, if the same person wins both challenges, they will win not only both motherboards, but they will also take home a bonus prize, an AMD new socket GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 motherboard when it launches later this year. That’s 3 motherboards in total for those that are math challenged. The contest runs from July 15th to August 15. Good luck everyone!
