WIN great prizes! - GigaQuiz in May
« on: April 30, 2009, 01:56:18 pm »
GIGABYTE UK is proud to introduce two fun ways in which you could WIN great prizes.
Please register today and join our Forum.

So, how can you WIN with GIGABYTE?

GigaQuiz
Join the fun and test your knowledge with GIGABYTE.
Answer the questions correctly and you could get yourself a 2GB USB Flash Drive.



In fact, we have 20x 2GB USB Flash Drive to give-away and to make it even more interesting, the first three correct answers will receive an extra prize.
The GIGABYTE GM-M6800 Gaming mouse.



All winners who have correctly answers all the questions, will randomly be picked.

The Questions (only one correct answer)

1.   What are the most important advantages of 2oz Copper PCB found only on GIGABYTE motherboards?

a.   Better rust resistance, reduced energy loss and lower EMI interference
b.   Lower heat generation,  lower PCB impedance and better electric current flow
c.   Automatic recovery of BIOS in case of failure (DualBIOS), better data security and longer life of capacitors

2.   What is GIGABYTE’s EZ-Share BIOS function?

a.   Protects motherboards in case of a main BIOS failure
b.   Lowers RDS on MOSFET where the BIOS is being stored
c.   Enables saving, loading and sharing of BIOS settings/profiles with other users

Please send the reply by PM (Private Message) directly to me [runn3R] with subject “May GigaQuiz Answers”.  

I will verify all the answers, but don’t leave it for the last moment, because you only have time from the 6th May to 31st May 2009 to send in your answers.
And don’t forget, that the first three correct answers will receive that extra GIGABYTE gaming mouse [GM-M6800].

But, we have more prizes to give-away.
Especially for people that are active on our Forum, we would also like you to have the opportunity to WIN prizes.  GIGABYTE has put together a Lucky pack, full of goodies, such as: Carry Bag, Ski jacket, Bennie, Playing Cards etc…
