The Candy PC was customized by Anthony Lackey and it was featured in the October 2011 issue of the CPU Magazine. The computer’s name comes from its brilliant candy blue and candy orange color. The colorful cable sleeving and UV lighting match well with the overall design.
As Gavin puts it:

Gaming PCs are specially designed for high performance. At the heart of Candy is the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro motherboard. The gaming rig is powered by the Intel Core i7-2600K processor which runs at 5.0 GHz. Candy has 4GB of DDR3 RAM and features two AMD Radeon HD 6970 graphics cards. The PC includes Kingston HyperX 128GB SSDs in Raid 0 with over 1000 MB/s read and write times. According to Anthony, he designed Candy for over-clocking and wanted to keep the system’s hardware components cool.
