Default GIGABYTE *OC Guru Is YOU!* competition

Hey guys,

For those who haven't visited HWBOT yet (shame on you!) and don't know about this ... GIGABYTE's hosting an R5870 competition during April. Concept is simple: overclock, measure performance and win prizes :-)

- $1500 for OVERALL winner
- Free R5870 SUPER OVERCLOCK SERIES card for GPU score winner
- R5750 as lucky draw prize

More info: http://hwbot.org/competition/gbt_r5870_challenge

GIGABYTE announces the launch of a global Graphics Card overclocking competition, "OC Guru is You!". This event coincides with the recent announcement of GIGABYTE’s latest family of Graphics Cards, the Super Overclock Series.

Gay. This is my opinion and should not be considered otherwise. But why in the world would you enforce the use of a Gigabyte motherboard at a R5870 competition event? Give me one good reason, except "this is Gigabyte/Sparta/marketing". If you want to prove your motherboards are the best, let the users do that for you.

Ok, this I can understand, as the prize is a video card.

No engineering sample CPUs allowed? May I ask why? Oh, if there were a Gigabyte processor out, you`d enforce that too I guess.
