FredEx's competition prize

As many of the regulars will know FredEx won a 3570K as a part of the Custom Corsair Compo. I said I was going to try my best for him to get the parts to make it an entire rig. Some of the bits are new and some are ex-review bits I had here but all in all it should be a huge upgrade from his old rig!

Old rig:

AMD 6000+ X2
ECS TA690G
Brown Box 6870 1Gig
4 Gig RAM
360 Gig Seagate 7200 rpm
500 Gig WD 7200 rpm
Scavenged COMPAC case
Antec 500 watt PSU
Samsung Sync Master 226bw 22" monitor
Logitech wireless keyboard
Logitech wireless trackball mouse
Thread: http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=50052


New Rig with original compo prize cpu:

3570K Compo Prize
Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H
Gigabyte GTX560 448
Corsair H60
Corsair Vengeance C70
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 2133MHz

This is really nice to see, awesome of you Tom. And also Corsiar and Gigabyte

Over the time he has been a member I have gotten to know FredEx a little and he genuinely seems like a lovely guy who really deserves something like this

This is the kind of time when I am honestly proud ot be a member of this forum.
