HWBOT OC Challenge March 2012: "Goodbye Abit, RIP"

It's official! All of Abit's services, including after-sales and website maintenance, are no longer active and what once was one of the most innovative mainboard manufacturers is now dead.

Well ... not completely dead of course! Their legendary boards will live on here at HWBOT and will be used for overclocking purposes long after Abit ceased to exist. Starting by today!

As previously announced, the March HWBOT OC Challenge is all about Abit mainboards. The competition is split up into 5 different stages, each having a different socket limitation, but all revolving around pushing the reference clock of the Abit boards.

Just like last month, the point distribution is as follows: 25-18-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. No need for a competition background this time, though, since the only validation requirement is a simple CPU-Z verification link!

Good luck and have the spirit of Abit help your clocks!
