GIGABYTE Initial K Contest!

Since this is the year of the rabbit in Asian astrology which symbolizes "quick" and the Easter bunny is soon to make an appearance in the West, we thought it would be fun to have a challenge to see just how quick some of you are with our P67* motherboards. As you probably figured out by the title, the GIGABYTE "Initial K Contest" focuses on Intel’s K sku CPUs.

Split into 6 stages, contestants who place in the top eight for each stage will receive points. The champion at the end with the most points will win one of HiCookie's first born X58A-OC board. 2nd and 3rd place winners will each receive a GIGABTYE P67A-D3-B3 motherboard.

Good luck everyone and hop to it!

  • X58A-OC
