While we are a little late reporting on it, this past weekend in Taipei city, Kingston held its own local overclocking event in conjunction with contest sponsors GIGABYTE.

Taiwanese contestants were provided with new Ultra Durable 3 Intel P45 motherboards from GIGABYTE along with of course super fast HyperX memory from Kingston. Being a local event, it was a much smaller event than the GO OC and MSI's MOA, but that's a given considering those were worldwide events.

Of course, the entire event was MC'ed in Chinese, and we didn't get all the details. We do know though that the winner walked away with $12,000 NTD (roughly $360 USD), second prize got $8,000 NTD (roughly $240 USD) and third prize took $5,000 NTD (roughly $150 USD). Each also got to keep the hardware that they were given to compete with.
