Gigabyte treated us like celebrities and took care of us like you wouldn't believe. i would just like to give a big shout out to Miah for the win. he had a crazy day and made the crucial decision he had to in order to win. in the end, he only got a single 06 run out at speed and it was just enough to get him the overall win combined with his excellent 8M score. i sat beside him and Chris (gomeler) and we had a damn good time helping each other out, sharing prep supplies, and just overall routing for each other.
You're totally right Jody, it was a blast. I'm so glad I sat next to you, cause I'm not sure I would have won it without your help bro...thanks! I'm regularly amazed by your overclocking achievements...especially recently with that D0 on the classified I wish I had more time day to day to bench.

Anyhow, very nice to bench with you, you've got a strong fan base behind you here at HWC...keep up the momentum, I hope to see you next year

Miah

hey right on Miah, good to see you here! it was my pleasure helping out where i could, that's what competition is to me...not just doing good but helping others if you can.

if you get a chance to sit beside this guy at a comp...do it. he has every tool, prep material, and accessory a guy needs...and of course is willing to share. Miah definitely knows how to pack for an event.

although we did plow through my blue paper towels between the three of us. i thought a whole roll was going to be plenty...two rolls next year i think

best of luck in Taiwan for you and Jeremy, should be some stiff competition

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! I hope you'll all be rooting for me in Taipei, like you were for Jody in LA. The finals will be tough :help:
