Our sweepstakes, which ran over the last couple of weeks (and you may have seen on the last page of our full Haswell-E review), has concluded, and one lucky reader is about to get a very large box on his doorstep. Congratulations to Joseph Rios for beating out thousands of other entrants to win a CyberPowerPC Black Pearl rig!
CyberPowerPC outfitted the sweepstakes prize Black Pearl with a six-core Intel Core i7-5820K (Haswell-E) processor, which is nestled into an EVGA X99 ATX motherboard and cooled by an Asetek 570 LXL 240 mm Liquid Cooling Extreme Performance CPU cooler. There's also an EVGA Superclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 (3 GB GDDR5) on board, and the PSU is the EVGA 750 Watt 80 PLUS Certified Ultra Quiet.
For storage, CyberPowerPC went with a zippy 256 GB Intel 730 Series (SATA 6 Gbp/s) SSD paired with a 2 TB (SATA 6 Gbp/s) 7200 RPM HDD, and there's a 16 GB (4 x 4 GB) DDR4-2133 MHz quad-channel memory kit, too.
The system comes with Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit) as well as a free 30-day trial of Office 365. The whole schmeer is wrapped in a special black and red NZXT H440 chassis.
Congrats to Mr. Rios!
