UPDATE: Contest is closed!  We'll announce a winner in the next couple of days!! Thanks to all who entered and to our sponsors for allowing us the chance to give away this kick-ass system!

UPDATE 2: Congratulations to user Cameron Berry as they are the winner of the PCAudioLabs sweepstakes sponsored by PC Perspective and Intel!!  Thanks to everyone that participated and be sure to stay tuned for more contests right here on pcper.com!

Our fans and readers have supported PC Perspective since its formation in 2004 and even before that back in the days of amdmb.com and athlonmb.com, and because of that support, we have been able to provide you with reviews and information on a continuous basis that we feel are the best in the industry.  And when we get the chance to give back to you, we jump at the chance and that is just what happened a couple weeks ago when our long time friends at Intel introduced us to the folks at PCAudioLabs for a sweepstakes of impressive proportions.

For the next two weeks we are giving our readers the chance to win a complete PCAudioLabs computer based on the Intel X79 platform and Sandy Bridge-E!!  If you aren't familiar with PCAudioLabs, here is a rundown of their mission from their website:

PCAudioLabs was formed early in 2000 by Thomas Bolton and Fred Rosenbloom. At the time, they were both working at Steinberg North America in the technical department and they noticed a great need for more educational tools for music production. With a video camera and a desire to inform, they started making in depth tutorial guides to some of the biggest software products in music production. The company was a huge success but it quickly became apparent that even if people knew how to use their software, it wouldn’t be of much help if the computer they were trying to use it on didn’t do its job.

PCAudioLabs built their first custom DAW for world renowned Engineer/Producer Mark Howard and within months they were the hottest system builders in the country. Besides the enormous list of pro users that have chosen PCAudioLabs, AMD, Intel and Microsoft have all turned to PCAudioLabs whenever they have audio needs.

In 2007, PCAudioLabs tripled in size, moving into a new location and increasing staff to meet demand. By NAMM 2008, PCAudioLabs was not only the supplier of PC’s for music software giants Steinberg and Cakewalk, but also hardware manufacturers such as Roland, Yamaha and Euphonix.

Although our task is technical, we know our staff needs to be able to relate to you and your situation. That’s why not only are the people who will build your system experts in computing, they are also musicians. In fact, any person you e-mail or speak to at PCAudioLabs makes music, so you’ll never have to worry about asking a musical question and getting a technical response – we speak your language.

Inside this brand-new generation of Rok Box you'll find an Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E processor along with a great Intel DX79TO motherboard.  Kingston has supplied 16GB of DDR3 memory to keep your audio creation rolling even with a ton of applications loaded up.  Storage is powered by a 240GB Intel 510 SSD as well as dual 1TB spinning drives for recording and sampling simultaneously.  ASUS has provided the GTX 560 Ti CUII TOP graphics card and the entire system is powered by an 850 watt Antec High Current Pro power supply.  In total, the system from PCAudioLabs will retail for right around $3,000!!

That isn't all though as PCAudioLabs has included full versions of software required for audio production including Cakewalk Sonar X1 Essential, Native Instruments Komplete Element's, IK Multimedia's Amplitube FREE and much more.  The software alone is valued at more than $600 bringing the total value here to over $3,600!  See the PCAudioLabs website for more details.

I am sure you are interested in the system itself so we have created a short video to go over the hardware as well as the software included in this bundle - check it out!

Without a doubt you are wondering what you have to do to win this system.  The steps are simple:

  1. Visit the PCAudioLabs Facebook page at http://facebook.com/pcaudiolabs, "Like" it and leave a comment on the wall if you want as well, thanking them for supporting PC Perspective and the audio creation community.  They are supporting PC Perspective by giving us this system and allowing US to support YOU with the giveaway, so get over here and support THEM!
     
  2. Leave a comment on this PC Perspective post below (registration is not required, though recommended) telling us and the PCAL crew what you plan to do with this system, how you'll utilize its power in your audio creation projects, etc.  What will the Rok Box improve or make easier for you?
     
  3. And if you want to follow us for more PC hardware news and upcoming contests you can do so at several locations.  http://twitter.com/pcper  http://facebook.com/pcper and http://gplus.to/pcper

That's it!  Our sweepstakes will run between today at end at 12:01am EST on March the 6th.  If you don't have your entry in by then, you are out of luck.  We will pick a random winner from the comments and ship the system out that week in March.  You are responsible for any taxes / tariffs but we'll cover the shipping to anywhere in the world. 

A HUGE thanks goes out to our friends at PCAudioLabs and Intel for making this possible and we hope you all appreciate the work that goes into putting something like this on.  Also, thanks goes to Antec, ASUS and Kingston for their support as well.  

Good luck to everyone and happy audio editing!!

Me and my friend make videos and whatnot with adobe CS5 and I would use this machine to make those movies come to life! :D We are currently using a crappy laptop for them, which is he'll to do....

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win this awesome system!

I've got a friend who is an aspiring DJ/music producer. I've been supporting him, and his music, ever since I learned of his hobby when I first met him. He's been living on his own for as long as I can remember, and if I were to win this system (and the giveaway), I would send him the system. It would be both a token of our friendship, and a really cool way to kick-start or just amp up his ability to make music.

Personally, the Rok Box would not do much for me. For my friend, however, I'm sure it'd give him the freedom and the power to make the best music that he could make.

Try this again.. I would love the setup.. I have a vast collection of multimedia files.. This would def ROCK!

I would use this as my system, and donate my 2 year old system to my relatives or the needy.

March 2, 2012 | 06:33 PM - Posted by Sam (not verified)

This is the perfect system for me! I've been making music for a while now and after a few lay off's, I've decided to go back to school and get my music degree. I also want to start my own podcast and internet show. I'll be able to use what I learn in school and use the power of this system to make music and sound effects for all those things. Thanks so much PCPer, PCAudioLabs!!

March 2, 2012 | 06:35 PM - Posted by AlexJB (not verified)

LOVE the look of this sexy and quiet box. It would be awesome for the audio and video work I need to get done this year!

I am an architect so this machine would really boost my rendering production! Thank you @PCAudioLabs!

Simply awesome system. I may not be in music creation, but I am in the process of doing digital prototyping for my engineering Inventions.

I need a lot more computing power for those physics simulations if I don't want to wait forever for results on my laptop.

My personal economics aren't quite up to upgrading to a high end system, and while in school that isn't going to happen for many years.

Thanks for having this contest, and whomever wins will be the envy of us all.

March 2, 2012 | 06:38 PM - Posted by Gaurav Rajasekar (not verified)

The Rok Box would be a great replacement for my horrid old laptop that I'm currently using for my college band's audio recording needs. Heck it beats plugging in everything to a single microphone jack :(

Plus I could use it to do my own audio for my blog and maybe a video resume proper! It would also make my entire life more easy.

Cheers and thank you for the contest.

March 2, 2012 | 06:38 PM - Posted by Zepp (not verified)

I don't have any knowledge in creating audio files but have been really interested in doing so... Music is a huge part of my life and this would help me with learning/creating.

thanks for the giveaway

Use for video games. Audio will be used maybe for home video recordings from vhs tape. Rok box will improve my lag.

I'd LOVE to win this awesome PC provided by PCAudioLabs. The features sound fantastic, and would blow many current systems out of the water.

If I won, I'd use this amazing desktop to record and make blazingly fast edits to various podcasts I help record. When not podcasting, it sounds like I'd get some great time gaming, as well as various other resource-intensive activities.

March 2, 2012 | 06:46 PM - Posted by Chris M (not verified)

This would be an incredible opportunity to learn some amazing software!

I'm not much of a musician myself, however my daughter sings, my son plays drums and guitar, two brother-in-laws play guitars, my son's girlfriend play guitar and piano, my wife plays a little piano - I'm sure we could come up with some use for this prize package! Maybe become the next Partridge Family!

Awesome system! Thank you PC Audio Labs for the support!

March 2, 2012 | 06:48 PM - Posted by Justin R (not verified)

I'd love to use this to create some awesome songs and tunes to play at get-togethers. I'll be doing a lot of entertaining in the near future for business, so being able to create my own sounds with top notch quality would be perfect and ideal. I'd also like to record and edit my bands songs, as studio recording is a bit too expensive for good quality.

March 2, 2012 | 06:53 PM - Posted by skylarmb

I cant edit HD video/audio on my laptop because it doesn't have enough ram, I am in desperate need of a new computer!

March 2, 2012 | 06:54 PM - Posted by cheetos666

As a indie developer, I would use the rig to design the audio of a game I developed in 2011, to make a port on Unreal Development Kit or Cryengine 3 :)

This build looks awesome thank you PC Perspective and PC Audio Labs for putting on this contest.

I would use this machine as a birthday present for my sister's 21st birhtday. She is really trying to learn how to make decent youtube videos and she creates her own music for the videos. She is using a dell system right now and it isn't doing so well. This would be the best present a brother could get a sister!

March 2, 2012 | 06:55 PM - Posted by Vijay Nyack (not verified)

I would use this for anything and everything I have every instrument I've played throughout my life and nothing to record them on I would stop using my laptop from 2002 and do all my grad school papers on this!!! AND of course do some major video creation work on it my current computer can;t handle that.

March 2, 2012 | 06:56 PM - Posted by Bigdaddy (not verified)

Thank you PC Audio Labs for supporting PCPer.com This rig would be the center of my home studio sound system.

Hey PC perspective, I'm goiing to use this computer to help my friends actually edit their songs, they can't afford to go to a studio so they just bought a mic and recorded, they could use some help editing it and my 3 year old laptop can't cut it, I'd be nice if you could send this our way

March 2, 2012 | 07:02 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

Thank you for the opportunity to win this system - if I can figure out how to enter.

March 2, 2012 | 07:05 PM - Posted by cmacres

Thank you PC Perspective. This would be the perfect system to replace my outdated Dell. I'm getting bogged down with too many programs & not enough RAM memory. I'd update the RAM but figure it would be better to get something that's about 5 years newer.

March 2, 2012 | 07:06 PM - Posted by Jon (not verified)

March 2, 2012 | 07:07 PM - Posted by Ju1iet

Wow! What a rig? Latest tech in a minimalistic case. It packs an enormous CPU but I think it will work better on the GPU if the software supports CUDA.

Btw, it will be used for video editing if won by me!

March 2, 2012 | 07:08 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

man that is awesome I hope i win it. It would replace the dinosaur i have now and i could use it to help with my networking study's plus my son can learn how to mix music like he would love to I HOPE I WIN!!!!!!!!!

e PCAL crew what you plan to do with this system, how you'll utilize its power in your audio creation projects, etc. What will the Rok Box improve or make easier for you?

With this system, I plan propel my band to stardom! I'll use it to create new tracks with tons of plugins, record with the computer right in the room (due to how quiet it is) and even for live performance due to the two hard drives! I would use this rig for the rest of my life!

March 2, 2012 | 07:12 PM - Posted by Chris A. (not verified)

this pc would be a great to tool for creating/editing music videos.

My LIFE would be perfect with the Rok Box System from PC Perspective. Why, because both of my daughters are in marching band and music, this would give them an edge on their music and get them straight A's in school. That would allow them to get into a great college. Then after that, a wonderful life would ensue them all thanks to PC Perspective for making it happen.

March 2, 2012 | 07:24 PM - Posted by AbbyNormal

Thanks PCAudioLabs and PCPer! I love your site and podcast.

This rig would be amazing! My main gaming rig just died and I don't have the funds to build a new one.

I'm an audiophile and amateur musician and I've always been interested in audio production and this rig would be a fantastic way to get started.

"fingers crossed!"

March 2, 2012 | 07:24 PM - Posted by Andy (not verified)

Would love to win this to have a powerhouse machine to help out some friends with their music!

This would be a great system for mixing our audio and video projects for our local school. I would also use it for developing marketing projects for the programs where I work supporting people who have developmental disabilities. This system really rocks!!!

This will clearly allow me to make better dubstep songs. HAHAHAHA, just kidding. It will help me remix songs faster, though.

I may not be too good at sampling audio, but if I won, this computer would definitely get used to do so. Why not learn to do something as awesome as make something that everyone likes, as well as play tons of games ofc :)

March 2, 2012 | 09:46 PM - Posted by Jason Cooper (not verified)

Having the rokbox would definitely open avenues I have never travelled before meaning audio creation. I have never dabbled in audio creation and this opportunity would make it so much easier to do so with the hardware and software in this machine. For the parts, you couldn't have chose wiser with intel's x79 platform since I know tasks like audio creation need lots of processing power from the audio card and the cpu. Don't get me wrong, there would be entertainment uses for the machine too with what it has to offer.

Thanks for the contest pc perspective and pc audio labs,well done!

March 2, 2012 | 09:47 PM - Posted by Jawneh (not verified)

To be perfectly honest, I haven't really done almost any music of my own. Some years back I did give it a whirl with an online app that some website was hosting where you could make your own synthesized music. People could judge other peoples creations and the ones that did good won prizes. I think I only got a few pity votes from my friends, but at least I liked what I had made.

But maybe if I happen to be the lucky one to win, I can promise I will give music creation another go and see what I can do and let you guys see what I have managed to do.

i would love to win this system. it would replace a core 2 duo laptop. while i am not currently involved with any audio creations, if i win this pc i would have my good friend's band come over to use this. i would really like to support them and a high powered audio pc would give them the edge they need to get signed

OMG I want this system!!! Holy cow, I create music currently on an ancient AMD based system with a Sound Blaster Live card. HA! I spend so much time waiting on the darn thing I don't get a lot done at one. This system will take me to the next level, just from the software that comes with it, let alone the freaking awesome hardware too.

Thanx for this contest guys. I would put this to good use tracking, editing, engineering a bunch of actual bands I'm friends with and play in. I love analog, but a system with this kind of power might just give me a much better appreciation for digital audio editing. It will def be nice to see how a analog/digital mix project will end up!! \m/

I've been into music my entire life, both as a musician and a fan. I've tried experimenting and looking into audio engineering but unfortunately I've never had the tools or money to be able to get into this seriously. I would love for a chance to turn my bad luck around and get into something that I can actually enjoy doing. Thanks to all the sponsors for this great opportunity.

I have an ancient DAW in our rehearsal space, running open source software which is no longer being actively devloped and also doesn't natively support many plugins.

We have been writing new music, but are unable to really record it properly on the current hardware. We have been saving for a while for a new DAW, but winning this rok box would enable us to begin actively tracking the new songs we have written and spend the money we have saved on a new and better audio interface.

We are not a professional band or a professional studio, this box would be of tremendous value to us in kickstarting the recording of our new material and begining a professional sounding EP for demoing.

I would love to have this system for editing a podcast.

Awesome opportunity, I plan to use this rig to help my friend create music. Checkout his Youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/kpkopo, Ill utilize it's power by taking advantages of the music software it's loaded with and create music videos with the help of the geforce gtx 560ti Asus put in. :D

This kind of contests opens up unimaginable doors for upcoming musicians/producers/composers, even if it´s not me I can´t thank you enough for giving a ray of light in a world full of fierce competition. THANK YOU!

I´m a composition major and if I won this I would use the system to fulfill my life´s dream of becoming a film composer... Goodbye to the days of: "Your project closed because the system ran out of memory". Finally realistic orchestral mockups without worrying of burning the computer!

This PC is excellent for my video creations at school. I am currently a medical student here in Asia and I would definitely benefit from the system's high-end component and premium softwares. We often create video and audio presentations for public health lectures in far-flung and under-served communities and also for hospital-based public information campaigns. This PC would really boost my content creation capabilities.

If I would win this, I will donate the PC to the school after I graduate.

And thank you for this awesome opportunity. :)

I want to play a game of League of Legends that isn't laggy.

With this machine, I would give the world a new sound. The Rok Box would certainly help someone on a budget, like me.

I was working on music production for years before my desktop, turntables, and all my audio gear got stolen from storage while I was caretaking in another state. This is a true story. The positive thing is I found my calling while caretaking and run a charity now. I would use the Rok Box to once again express my talents, to record harity songs, and to make background music for our shark-diving videos. My goal is to make the first underwater rap video and this would be the key tool in making that possible.

March 3, 2012 | 01:06 AM - Posted by Danny (not verified)

I feel bad for you, not being able to participate in this contest. I'd love to have this system. I love music creation of all sorts. I've been doing music production for a while, mainly on volunteer basis for inspiring Christian groups. This rig would be great to step it up some! Thanks a bunch guys!

this looks so cool!!!!

March 3, 2012 | 01:34 AM - Posted by SickPigeon

I would definitely use that rig for gaming but my mom's kind of addopted grand kid comes over here to play from time to time. His dad has a music studio in another state, he loves music and creating it and mixing it. He would love to spend time on it.

Thank you Pc perspective, Antec, ASUS, Kingston, Intel and Pc audio labs for your support if i win the prize i would use the parts to upgrade.
Thanks

Thanks PC Perspective and PC Audio Labs.
I would replace my aging video editing rig.

March 3, 2012 | 02:05 AM - Posted by Steampoweredfox

I work with a lot of local artists and have a very... lacking setup I often find myself disappointed with the lack of quality that I can render on my current machine. I haven't been able to afford a rig that could handle a full input system and would LOVE to record my electric violin jams. So in short I would use this computer for the absolute good and advancement of music. thank you for your time PCP and PCAudioLabs.

March 3, 2012 | 02:25 AM - Posted by D.J.J. (not verified)

I work in music & animation and this would be a killer rig to work with!!!

Hi!

I am the co-founder of an independent film company. We are working on a 6 month project right now that when finished will make up a 45 minute movie premiering this summer. The film is very much dependent on it's soundtrack that will be recorded by a number of local musicians.

This awesome system would give us plenty of power to put together an awesome soundtrack and awesome movie.

Thanks for considering my comment.

Thank you to both PCAudioLabs & PC Perspective for having this contest, and offering an awesome rig! Not only would I use this as a gaming rig, but also I could use it to help my friends digitize their recordings.

March 3, 2012 | 02:53 AM - Posted by Allen Forbes (not verified)

This awesome! What I'd do with this system? Finally digitize my music collection, play with the music creation software to make keytar like music. Oh and be bale to view the crappily written site that is pcgamer.

The potential for this system to create some really wonderous work has me really worked up. Would love to win this system and its software and put it through its paces. The Rok Box is going to bring music to my ears!
