Update Jan 4, 2017: NZXT has now confirmed and announced the winner -- congratulations to Alejendro A. from New Jersey!

Update Jan 1, 2017: The entry period has ended. Thanks to everyone who entered! NZXT will validate entries and confirm the winner's eligibility. We'll update this post again once we get the winner's information.

Original Post:

NZXT sent us their new Kraken X62 CPU cooler, Aer RGB case fans, a Hue+ and some accessories to tie all that RGB goodness together inside their new S340 Elite case. We took one look at the case's front panel HDMI port and decided we needed to build the ultimate NZXT VR-Ready Gaming PC.

NZXT liked our idea as well -- so much that they are giving away the complete part list from our build! Head over to the giveaway page to enter for a chance to make this build your own!

Entry period for the NZXT giveaway is open through 12/31/2016. Open worldwide where not prohibited. Must be 13 years of age or older to enter. Check the giveaway page for complete details on the prize as well as the full terms and conditions for entry.

Cool, I love these contests! Imma pull it apart if I win , box it up, then put it all in a big newegg box, put that on my front door, then have my wife ring the doorbell dressed as a fedex person and procede to start from there. :)

Same. One day...

StickyStix 1 Build 2 points 11 months ago

One of the big reasons I enter the PCPP giveaways is because I love the tension of getting on my emails and praying I got the lucky email, lol. It's very fun.

slam_bike 1 point 11 months ago

Made a build with a 6700k and 1070 in a regular s340 back in September. This would be a nice aethetics and a little performance upgrade for me, and then I could sell my nearly new setup to a friend for like half price to help him out. Please? Good luck to everyone though!

xDiiThy 3 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Another giveaway :D

wahrone 1 point 11 months ago

This doesn't make sense. The S340 Elite has 3 140mm fan spots and a 120mm fan spot. 2 of the spots are taken by the X62, so you can't use all the fans.

Regardless I still entered lol

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

Correct. NZXT sent us a 3-pack, but ultimately we ended up only using 2.

wahrone 1 point 11 months ago

I am absolutely entering. Especially considering I game and work on my old 2013 iMac which has been smashed and bent to hell when my house got broken into last year. If I win I will go nuts and celebrate on YouTube. :P

Thesinglecorelife 1 point 10 months ago

My only potato has 32-bit Windows Vista. I know the supreme rulers of this thread will just mock the peasant that I am, but I really need this. It can't even run CS:GO, for gods sake!!

Chino600 1 point 10 months ago

A giveaway! Sweeet! Maybe I will finally have that dream machine that I've always wanted.

ctmuck 2 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

This giveaway has me daydreaming about what I could do if I won. I am blessed enough to have built a PC for both myself and my wife, but my brother is not quite as fortunate. Throughout our entire lives, my brother and I have spent a lot of time as friends as well as a lot of time at odds. The one thing we've always been able to do together no matter where we're at is game. We still do it to this day on occasion, but his rig limits our time together. He is gaming on a laptop (I know), and one that has trouble playing most of the newer titles at all. And now, he is getting married in March! So saving for his own PC is likely even further out of the question. I have dreamt of being able to present him with a beautiful rig I built for him for a while and gaming together in at least the glory of 1080p at 60 frames on some big titles.

If I won: If you have checked out my account yet, you should have already noticed (unless you're new to all of this). The PC NZXT is graciously giving away is vastly more powerful that either of my humble rigs. (never though $1200 would get me humble until I met the PC master race). Nonetheless, as my first rig ever, mine still has far more sentimental value to me than a new one did. If i were by some miracle to win this, I would be delighted to unbox, take some pictures, assemble, set up and give my brother the best Wedding gift he'll ever receive.

If you made it all the way through, thanks for listening to my story! Hope you enjoyed. (don't usually talk much here)

ViciousWafflez 1 point 10 months ago

My 6 year old PC is dead. I hope I win this.

Dead_PC_Chaos 1 point 10 months ago

Eltech 16 Builds 8 points 11 months ago

I'm giving it shot. Doesn't hurt to try.

GammaBear -7 points 10 months ago

Actually yes it does if you read the terms it says they can sell your personal info or use it however they please once you enter and agree to the terms.

Eltech 16 Builds 7 points 10 months ago

What do you mean "sell" personal info? Rephrase, they will share personal info to sites that may relate to purchasing products, but they need your permission before they fully do so. If you have concerns about their privacy policy and how they handle user's information, even your own, than contact toprivacy@nzxt.com and delete the account or just don't sign up.

No, it doesn't prevent advertisements if you are wondering around from site to site but for personal info that is handled differently. Unless something is illegal, harssing users, and broken policy than that may be a reason to seek personal information.

So I don't think you have to worry about this. I get the impression you didn't sign up their give away.
