VisionTek Products LLC, a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PC and Apple Macintosh computers, announced today the Glacially Epic Cryosphere Gaming Rig Sweepstakes. The grand prize to be awarded is the VisionTek Custom Shop built Cryosphere gaming rig, featuring nearly $3,000 of high-performance computer components from AMD, ASUS, Fractal Design, FUNC, and VisionTek.

 Showcased at CES to Rave Reviews

 To demonstrate the CryoVenom R9 290 as the industry’s first and fastest custom-built liquid cooled AMD Radeon™ R9 290 graphics card on the market at the recent CES show, the VisionTek Custom Shop team built a high performance gaming rig and dubbed it Cryosphere. Gaming and computer performance experts who viewed the system during CryoVenom’s launch event were impressed. “The Cryosphere liquid cooled gaming rig is loaded with amazing hardware that will devour your favorite games titles,” said Nathan Kirsch, Editor-in-Chief, LegitReviews. Steve Burke, Editor-in-Chief, Gamers Nexus opined, “PC gaming is about style as much as it is about performance -- the Cryosphere achieves both.”
