Last Words

Besides the 3 warriors of each team in the contest, it will be allowed up to more 5 members of each team to be there just to cheer, they will not be allowed to help their teammates. So 22 Brazilian overclockers are expected to join this contest, competing, cheering or judging. There will be everything needed to have a great overclocking party this Saturday in Brazil.
It will be the second live contest held this year by Gigabyte and Corsair in Brazil (the first one was a individual contest held at Campus Party Brazil), we hope that more companies starts to see how the overclocking community is growing fast here and starts to make some great events like this more often.

Just to tease the contestants

Like happened in the latest two Gigabyte contests here in Brazil, I’m the one in charge of flashing the same BIOS and installing and setting up the same OS to every kit.  So here goes a small picture of some of the hardware that those guys will be overclocking this Saturday:
