Since GIGABYTE has realized that many overclockers will not be able to do “extreme cooling” (LN2 / Dry-Ice / Liquid Cooling) and stand a chance to win the TOP prize. GIGABYTE has decided to give away GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3 Motherboard to the best overclocker with highest combined score using only “air cooling”.
