“We had ideas we were just waiting to try, and we wanted to break some rules; push the limits of what we could do with this machine,” said Jesus Ruiz, Product Development Engineer at Cybertron International. “Instead of just one PC, we built two systems into a desk frame that took us over 250 hours to design and assemble.”
Over one million votes were cast in the Intel Extreme Rig Contest with over two-hundred and fifty thousand of those for the CLX entry. Fans from all over the world cast their vote on Twitter for the Wichita built machine that would give any serious gamer the ultimate edge.
