Grand Prize Trip to Taiwan to Watch the GO OC 2010 Worldwide Final

Taipei, Taiwan, August 23th, 2010 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and computing hardware solutions is pleased to announce that Marc Bro Beier from Denmark is the winner of the GIGABTYE #1 Biggest Fan Contest, which means he will be receiving a 4 days, 3 nights all expenses paid trip to Taipei, Taiwan to witness first-hand the overclocking community’s largest event, the GIGABYTE Open Overclocking Competition 2010 worldwide final.

The Search for GIGABYTE Motherboard’s #1 Biggest Fan contest ran from May17th to July 31st, where fans on the GIGABYTE Motherboard Tech Column on Facebook ( had some pretty creative ways to show their love for GIGABYTE motherboards. Hundreds of fans participated, but there were several standout entries, with fans submitting pictures and videos of their systems, giving advice to other fans about system settings and hardware recommendations and generally creating a very supportive community atmosphere. This just meant that judging the winner was that much more difficult for GIGABYTE staff. Of course, there could only be one winner, and Marc clearly showed us his love for GIGABYTE motherboards, whether through his series of informative videos (, his often passionate, yet helpful suggestions to GIGABYTE, as well as his advice to other GIGABYTE motherboard fans. Congratulations Marc. See you in Taipei in September!
