Taipei, Taiwan, May 26th, 2017 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is excited to announce the start of Master Your Ryzen 2017, our fourth contest in 2017 overclocking season on HWBOT.ORG. A total prize pool of $3,000 USD in cash prizes is available for the top three contestants in both Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 sub-categories along with 3 “Lucky Draw” winners.


The competition will be based on the exciting new AMD Ryzen platform in two categories- Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors. The contestants will also get a chance to compete in two separate cooling categories (extreme and air cooling), so there are no excuses not to join the competition! Ryzen 7 will be open to all cooling methods (air / sub-zero), while Ryzen 5 will be limited to air cooling alone! For those who just want to have a go and join the competition, regardless of skill, cooling or ability, will have a chance to win one of three door prizes selected at random! The trick is to submit scores for all categories to be eligible!
