It also features a GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 design that boasts outstanding quality components in the form of a 2x copper PCB, Japanese solid capacitors, Ferrite core chokes and Low RDS (on) MOSFETs - quality components make quality motherboards!

"We’re looking forward to seeing some really creative videos that reflect the innovation and quality that GIGABYTE motherboards are known for," commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE Technology Co. Ltd.

Designed for the P55 Chipset, GeIL launches the all new DDR3 Gaming Series EVO ONE Dual Channel Kit to the performance DDR3 memory module lineup. DDR3 is the next-generation memory for personal computing, servers and other computing applications. It is now the highest performing memory with official data transfer rate that doubles the speed of the DDR2 architecture with much lower power consumption.

"Over the years, GeIL memory and products have always been a huge fan and participant of the great gaming communities worldwide. Today we give our warmest welcome to a soulful gaming partner – BitFenix. GeIL is honored to be able to participate in the first BitFenix contest and we can’t wait to see what videos you enthusiasts come up with for the BitFenix Video Challenge!" said Hank Cheng, GeIL Marketing Manager.
