Give GIGABYTE's Z97 a Last Hurrah on HWBOT


Our love for overclocking at GIGABYTE means we are big supporters of the community. If you head on over to our friends at HWBot you’ll see we are sponsoring the GIGABYTE Z97-Last Hurrah Challenge with $2,000 USD in cash prizes as well as two mystery motherboard prizes. This new challenge gives the community a last chance to test their skills on the GIGABYTE Z97 platform before the launch of Intel’s eagerly anticipated 6th Gen. CPU and Z170 chipset next month.



Overclockers will have the chance to win some serious cash by pushing their CPU to the absolute limit on a GIGABYTE Z97 motherboard with their preferred cooling setup. The contest is divided into four stages, and contestants submit their best score. The more points the better.




Here’s a breakdown of the contest stages:

Category 1: Air/Water Cooling (Ambient)

Stage 1: XTU – July 10th until July 25th
