Intel x Micro Center In-Store PC Build Contest!

This discussion has a more recent version.
edited December 2021 in Contests

When Intel's 12th Gen processors released last month, every one of our stores put together a computer to celebrate. We've posted them all to our Build Showcase with #Intel12GENxMC, but we can't decide which one is the best. So we want you to pick for us!

We've posted our six favorite builds below. Some are just fantastic builds, some are incredibly thematic rigs, and some are just pure powerhouses for Cinebench and 3D Mark.

So, take a look at the incredible builds our stores put together, then pick your favorite in the poll below!

Special thanks to Intel for providing parts!
