Maingear F131 Contest WinnerFive questions with the winner of our Maingear/AMD giveaway

Last month we gave away a righteous rig (equipped with a i7-3770K CPU, two AMD Radeon HD 7970s in crossfire, and 8GB ofCorsair Dominator Platinum RAM in a sleek Maingear F131 chassis) courtesy of AMD and Maingear on our Facebook page, and a enthusiastic gentleman named Sean Pisto from Canadia was the lucky recipient of the prize. We asked him to share with us whether or not he thought he was going to win, what his old gaming PC was running, and what it was like to take it out of the box for the first time. The Q&A is posted in the full story!


Win a PowerColor Devil 13 HD 7990 GPU!


The entry period for this giveaway is now closed

If there’s one thing readers of Maximum PC can appreciate, it’s a ludicrously sized GPU like the PowerColor Devil 13 HD 7990. This unholy video card combines the power of two Radeon HD 7970 GPUs along with 6GB of RAM into a massive, power-sucking, case-hogging, and benchmark flogging masterpiece. Notable features include one-touch overclocking, a triple-fan cooling solution that takes up three slots inside your PC, and a custom assortment of tools from legendary tool-maker Wiha. It should also be noted that this video card is so muscle-bound that it comes with its own support stand, for Pete’s sake.
