Gigabyte kicks off summer with an overclocking competition hosted on HWBOT – the GIGABYTE Beat the Heat Overclocking Contest 2017. GIGABYTE tags along with overclocking authority HWBOT and turn the heat up this summer for the HWBOT community of enthusiast and expert overclockers. GIGABYTE put up a prize pool of over $2,500 US dollars of computer hardware and goodies for the top overclockers.

The GIGABYTE Beat the Heat Overclocking Contest will commence on the 1st of July until the end of the month, 31st of July, 2017.
