The Winners of the $1000+ Core i7 CPU Giveaway

Earlier this month we ran a contest giving away some very nice and expensive CPUs. In our labs we had some Intel Core i7-990X, Core i7-980X and Core i7-950, all with matching motherboards.

Some of these combos retailed for more than $1,200, and now they've all found new owners. In fact, we found an extra set; so instead of five lucky winners, we're announcing a lucky six!

Big congratulations to:

Henri Jupille of Denver, CO

Hung Nguyen of Portland, OR

William Hertzel of Arvada, CO

Kenneth Nickel of Upland, PA

Dustin Shaw of Austin, TX

Christopher Sherman of Berkley, CA

Thanks for participating! If you didn't win this time, be sure to try your luck again in our Q1 System Builder Marathon giveaway!
