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.
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.
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.
A huge thanks to NZXT for providing their components for this build and for putting together this fun giveaway!
