Motherboard a graphics card manufacturer, GIGABYTE, has announced the winner of the GIGABYTE CATZILLA OC Contest, hosted by HWBOT.org. The manufacturer invited the overclocking community to push their hardware to the limit and run the CATZILLA benchmark skin on their GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboard. Also, the manufacturer has placed $1000 in cash and two GIGABYTE Z97 up for grabs for the two lucky winners.
The contest ran in two stages it seems, having the first stage be a 720p GPU overclock while using air/water cooling, and the other using LN2 cooling. It seems that the air/water stage was won by WebTourist, having scored 36832 marks with his GeForce GTX 780 Ti overclocked at 1555/2075MHz. He has also received his $500 cut from the prize money and the GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H.
The second stage winner, using LN2 cooling, is said to be DANCOP, having scored 43121 marks with his GeForce GTX 780 Ti at 1975/2100MHz. The other half of the prize money, namely $500, went to him in this case, along with a GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2.
