Dear All (especially gamers)

GIGABYTE will join i38 event – the UK’s Largest LAN Party. GIGABYTE will be showing off performance, stability, quality and overclocking abilities of its motherboards for all, including you, the professional gamer!

This is the first time that GIGABYTE will demonstrate such overclocking ability in front of so many gamers. GIGABYTE is also proud to have invited UK’s top overclockers, Benchtec, to attend and be part of the action. And as usual, Benchtec will also be using LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen) on GIGABYTE’s P55 motherboard.

The overclocking will happen during the breaks, mainly on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th Nov.
Take this opportunity to speak to GIGABYTE and Benchtec, share your stories and ideas, be a part of the fun and the experience, as you know, first class hardware is the key to achieving stable performance.

However, the i-38 is not all about the overclocking, in fact it’s really about the gaming, so you will be able to see H2O3D Extreme Gaming Rig based on GIGABYTE MB and VGA's.

GIGABYTE would like to wish ARM3D the best of luck for the competition.

In addition to all this, GIGABYTE will be giving away LOTS of prizes, from pens to motherboards.

I have on my hands two of the prizes so far   ;)
1x GA-P55A-UD5
1x GA-P55A-UD4

Plus I also have the rest of the prizes, but that will be a surprise  :o

Dear All (especially gamers)

GIGABYTE will join i-38 event – the UK’s Largest LAN Party.

The overclocking will happen during the breaks, mainly on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th Oct.

Looks at diary notes it is November.  What is the correct month this event is happening? Seems a bit strange to post a notice when the even has happened. So I am guessing a typo???

The event was really great.  Thanks to everybody for visiting our booth! The main competition was about to stick to yourself as many Gigabyte post-it notes as possible :D in a given time.

Big thanks to Arm3D gaming team and Benchtec for support during the event!

After heavy gaming some people still used these posties, see below  ;)





I will post more photos and maybe some movie soon.

Well done lads great weekend.

um You do mean a class world record for that CPU class and not the overall world record of course. None the less a great benching session from two of the best in the land.
