To bring some much-needed heat to this chilly winter, we joined up with our friends at OCZ, Intel, WD, Gigabyte, and Xigmatek, and assembled another rig to give away to a lucky reader. This time around we gave you all a chance to win an Intel Core i7-870-infused gaming rig with 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 600GB, 10K RPM hard drive, an OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, Radeon HD 6870 graphics card and a few other goodies. The complete parts list and breakdown for this sweepstakes build is listed below. And just below that, we're announcing the winner!
Coolice -- You are the winner! Shoot us a note with your full contact information and we'll let you know when the machine ships! Congrats from Team HotHardware! We hope you enjoy it! And for the hundreds of runners-up (there are no losers around here!), keep those commenting fingers limber--we'll be announcing our next giveaway VERY soon. And you’ll definitely want to stick around for this one!

"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
plz next time let the rest of the world participate toooo, we'll pay for shipping :D,and congrats to the winner
Congratulations on your win Bud!
You're gonna like how that PC runs. The Vertex drive will make it real snappy, and the Raptor likewise.
Like all of HH's prizes, it's got a great parts list, that reads like someone expressing their 'inner builder'.
I wonder if there is gonna be another build log for this PC,...or is it already assembled?
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Congrats coolice I dont know why but some reason when I checked this morning to see if a winner had been chosen I had a feeling you might win might have been the fact that when I llokes at the post count this morning it looked like you had 52 or something! But its a good win and HH Marco and Dave are great so enjoy your rig its a very very nice one!
That is a fantastic prize you got yourself there. Hope to see some pics of the new rig when ya get it all setup.
