Rules: Year of the Snake Prize Draw

To celebrate the forthcoming Chinese New Year of the Snake, we’re asking all HWBOT members to consider shedding their CPU-Z skin and adopt ours. All submissions on any hardware platform, submitting any benchmark screenshot featuring the GIGABYTE OC CPU-Z, will be automatically entered in a weekly prize draw to win a GIGABYTE Z77N-WIFI motherboard.

CPU-Z is a freeware hardware detection app from CPUID that monitors and gathers information about your PC. GIGABYTE has worked with CPUID to develop special OC version that we think appeals to overclockers.
