Manufacturer: Gigabyte

Overall results and coverage (part 2)


Here's a quick shot of how "Vapor" sets up his system for overclocking



Eric Hassett aka "Vapor" pours liquid nitrogen over the processor as he prepares to overclock his system. Vapor was last year's Freestyle Champion and already has an invitation to Gigabyte's Championship in Taiwan.



Charles "Fugger" Wirth waits for his system to boot after setting up his sytem. Wirth was one of last year's champions and already has an invitation to Gigabyte's Championship in Taiwan.



This was the only system submerged in mineral oil in the competition



Here's a close-up shot at Fugger's configuration



Here's a quick screenshot of Fugger's CPU configuration. I believe he got higher than this toward the end of the competition.

Rdrash tries to squeeze in a few more runs of Super Pi before time expires



Here's a close-up shot at rdrash's system configuration



Jody Bailey aka "3oh6" preps his video card for the 3DMark06 event



Vachira "TiTON" Khowdee adds a little more LN2 to his video card during a run of 3DMark06



The line at the LN2 tanks were never inactive; competitors stopped by for refills often
