So the winners of the Intel Custom Desktop Challenge have been announced. The competition was open to modders around the world from October 5th to December 14th. Each contestant was required to build either a Core i7 or Core i5 system. This idea behind this was to show the range of possibilities open with the new Intel CPUs.

The overall winner was one called "Duck" it looks like a Liquid Nitrogen cooled system with a rather overabundance of high gloss red paint. Still this was a very interesting entry. PCGames hardware has a nice gallery of some of the top builds. My favorites are; "The World's End" and "Project COOL"
