GIGABYTE have fired up two new challenges lined for overclockers this month; the P55 Overclocking Challenge and 10K challenge.

 

With regard to the P55 Overclocking Challenge, as long as you have a P55 based setup with a Core i5 or i7 processor ready to be clocked through the roof, you can enter and compete for the overall "OverclocKing" title.

The top three overall 3DMark 06 scorers worldwide on a GIGABYTE P55 motherboard will be crowned OverclocKing, along with some pretty amazing hardware loot from GIGABYTE, Antec, Kingmax, GlacialTech and Enermax. There will also be a weekly lucky draw for contestants entered in the OverclocKing challenge, with winners receiving a GIGABYTE motherboard.

 

Further to that is the 10K Challenge in which anyone with an Intel chipset based motherboard can participate in. The aim is to be one of the first three people to get a 3DMark score of exactly 10,000 under any version of 3DMark. If you can pull that off successfully, you'll find yourself with a bunch of goodies from GIGABYTE, Antec, Kingmax, GlacialTech and Enermax.

 

If you manage to get exactly 10K but don't make the cut for the first three, it's still worth submitting your score to GIGABYTE as you'll then be placed into a lucky draw at the end of the comp to be in with a chance for one of GIGABYTE's latest motherboards.

 

For full details on both competitions, you can read up on the full announcement here.
