Gigabyte recently held its GO OC 2009 Pan American Finals. The event's winner will pack his bags and fly to Taiwan on June 3rd to compete for the world title and 5000 U.S. dollars in prize money. Today we are covering this event as we stated in our previous article on both days of the event with a plethora of images.
Here is the banner that greeted all of the visitors and competitors, introducing us to the "Dirty Dozen + 1", overclockers that competed in the GO OC 2009.
Here is a shot of the room where the entire event went down. The picture below can be described as "calm before the storm". The setup was very well done and hey made sure that nobody was tripping over any wires while walking around.
And here, you can see the equipment that they were given in order to compete. This includes a Gigabyte EX58-UD4P, a Gigabyte mouse, keyboard and monitor. It also includes an Enermax Revolution 1050W PSU, 3GB of Kingston HyperX DDR3 memory, and an Intel Core i7 Extreme i965 Processor. They will be cooling all of this using LN2 which is commonly known as liquid nitrogen.
And here are some of the sponsor's booths.

Here are the LN2 dewars that were used for the two days of the event. What's a hundred plus kilos of LN2 between competitors, right?
