Most deserving winner takes home a GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7

A few weeks ago we asked our Facebook friends and followers to tell us why they thought they were the most deserving of a brand new, top-of-the-line GIGABYTE Z77X-UD7 motherboard. More than 800 of you left your comment, explaining why you deserve to win. But one comment from Darren Wong drew the most ‘Likes’. Here’s what Darren had to say:

“Because i never owned such powerful motherboard and im dying to get one! The past few weeks i've changed my PSU, GPU, monitor and casing left the other components which will be upgraded slowly(Due to lack of budget) to a high-end gaming and editing PC. And there i saw this great opportunity, which would save me from paying with my arms and legs!! I have to honest that i really din't used a gigabyte mobo before but i believe this board will be the BEAST and i'd really really like to have it in my case to try on(Not to mention the crazy overclocking on this board) and replace my current 6 years old cheapy Asus board”


Sounds like our Z77X-UP7 motherboard will be put to good use. Congrats to you Darren.

  2. Congratulations Darren, you've won a top board there as I'm sure your aware, hope to see some pics of it in your build ^^ Enjoy

  3. Hearty Congratulations, have a good time with the board :)

  4. It's fucking cheating. And very very clear from the number of likes he got.
    What's the next best number of likes? I saw it's 04, next best? It's 102. THey are realistic. But not a post with 6.6K likes.
    If GIGABYTE want to be respectable, then they should award the board to the user who got ~600 likes.

  5. so it's better to be a cheater to win these contests like based? :-/

  6. Congratulations to you! enjoy the new board~

    But I really think that a 'like' based competition is a great idea... not all people on facebook is famous who has a lot of followers that they can seek for some help.

  7. Congrats to the winner!!

  8. Cool blog guys! I built my first custom rig a year ago now and am still upgrading it with every paycheck haha. It's cool to get an insight into a team like yours who builds the components. Right now I've got a ASRock Z68 mobo, but I'm already having problems with the RAM slots and other things. When I get round to upgrading it, I'll check out your stuff for sure!
    Anyway, really enjoyed your blog here. I work for a new social blogging site called, and was just wondering if you would be interested in sharing your posts there? It would n't affect this blog at all, and I know there are many computer enthusiasts within our community that would be very interested in your work. Let me know what you think!

    All the best,


  9. While I do enjoy entering contests, the most likes kind like this one are definitely not my favorite.
