HA!

A most hilarious and unique anedotal entry sir. Welcome to HWC.

I believe many of us may have one VERY pressing question however!
.....After its truly remarkable display of strength and resilliance... did the motherboard still post? And could it hit a 500MHz FSB

It did indeed...after I cleaned the scales out of the PCI express slots.

On another note, can anyone out there send me a referral for a good neuro-surgeon. I'm still getting migraine headaches from the aneurysm caused by thinking up a Gigabyte acronym that made sense for my story.

hey everyone, new to the forums but have been reading the HC reviews for a while, mainly because i belong to too many forums as it is keep up the good work reviewers! i threw this togeather because i had built my first PC in january of last year choosing a gigabyte motherboard por peoples reccomendation. i was 13 with no building PC experience and had no help, i cant stress enough how easy gigabyte made it to accomplish the build. i feel as though this video submission is the least i can do even though it is totally un-related to what i just stated. good luck to everyone else, and me because im sure as hell going to need it with a submission like this

Here is my attempt at an entry, hopefully it makes someone laugh (the judges preferably) but I had a lot of fun making this and want to say thanks for putting this contest on. I've enjoyed other peoples entries and hope everyone enjoys mine.

Episode Gigabyte is Awesome....so is ice-cream!

I've been checking out the entries and there are some very good ones and other ones also. I'm thinking that the hardware version of "Slumdog Gigabyte" might end up winning this contest. btw the way if anyone wants to use that title feel free, but you'll have to thank me during your acceptance speech lol.
