Default Gigabyte Open Overclocking Championship 2009 Taipei Final

For four months, GO OC 09 regional finals have been taking place all around the world, but today, the first and second place winners from each event are here in Taipei to compete for the grand prize. Of course, it's not the swag that matters, but the recognition! We'll be reporting from the event as it progresses.

Updates can be found here. Go North America!

Can't believe they froze a motherboard + GPU inside the ice sculptures...

With all that frozen CO2 & LN2 evaporating off they must've had a ton of air flow piped into that room...
