Taipei, Taiwan, October 7th, 2014 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the GIGABYTE TARGET OC, its latest overclocking contest hosted on HWBOT.org. GIGABYTE TARGET OC is a new challenge to test the true overclocking skills of the community. Setting an exact target on not only high, but also low scores, the participants will need to learn how to adjust the performance of their systems to be able to hit the right mark. A lot is on the line; a total of USD $2,000 in cash prizes and five GIGABYTE motherboards, including two recently launched X99-SOC FORCE motherboards, will be offered to the winners and participants through lucky draws.

Overclocking is not only about pushing the limits of your hardware, it is also about mastering the skills needed to tweak all aspects of your system to achieve the performance that you want. In this challenge we will also give you an opportunity to showcase your overclocking and downclocking skills. With TARGET OC, GIGABYTE decided to have some fun with selection of the target scores and chose some epic world records back in the day as well as some super bad scores to see how well you can tune your system to the level of performance of old time greats and super bad overclocks of today. By trying to hit every scores set, we are hoping the participants will have fun trying to search the perfect setting for the perfect score.
