Wheres the February rig lol...
What happenned to Guru3D Rig of the Month ?
Is this Guru3D rig of the month still stand or is it over ?
Yeah, I'm working on a project and was hoping to see some fame.
Has nothing outstanding come up lately or what?
Very nice work.
Love the lighting scheme.
Next week I will be posting a new entry myself and passing my current rig to my wife.
wow yuks! "spacey"
I like the Thermalbake Bigwater. Pro-gear right there.
For anyone who cares, the thing I trolled on page one was a car cigarette lighter mod. Take advantage of those 12V rails!
Polite request for the July RotM please.
I think my new rig im getting soon will win. It has 3X GTX 285, Core i7 975, 1500 Watt PSU and 12GB 2000MHz DDR3 Memory
Well, I have quite good rig atm, 2*GTX285, i7 920 @ 4,4GHz, watercooling... Cable management and case are horrible tough so I'm not going to enter before I can get those fixed (don't expect this to happen in few months tough).
Just saying, prolly that rig will win if it has good case and you can do some cable management. Good specs alone are not worth ROTM
I'm gonna build one here in the next couple weeks. Not going to use the top of the top parts, but planning on doing a lot of nice work to it. Might keep the case I have now, seeing at how beautiful it is.
Im guessing that mine is classed as unique, down to the fact that it is.
Well case wise, there isnt another one the same......
But until i can get some hardware in it, i guess its not gonna count?
Artwork soon though i guess..
Dam, will be upto around £2800 just for case.
No wonder i cant put anything in it.
But as you say, not down to cost of hardware, if it goes by work put in, then ive got a chance i guess.
But even if it doesent, i still end up with a unique case, unless i decide to produce it of course.
I've seen your work Pablo, if you get hardware in it it'll be a nice rig. I'd vote for you!
I think im pretty unlucky, cost lots, never got sponsors etc etc, on min wage job etc etc..
Violins out... he he.
But has been fun doing unique stuff.
But like to see all you guys doing stuff.
I would like to apply for this! Check the guru 3d rig part 7
I'm guessing the standard will be much higher this year since OCZ are sponsoring and Prizes are involved
I'll be perfecting my rig in a couple of weeks, hope to be in with a chance!
Avid team reader here and hoping for some good feedback on proposed rig. Curious to know what you all think of component decisions for the following build? I'll apologize in advance if I should be posting elsewhere, but if worthy, I'll be submitting build pics for Rig-Of-The-Month.
Please keep in mind; I intend to maximize options to add memory, upgrade video card and CPU, convert to H2O, add external backup, add SSD and HDD, add Blu-Ray and second monitor in 6-9 months depending on a number of circumstances.

I also just wanted to mention that I have a 6k USD budget which is maxed out with this config based on current retail prices. Intel NIC option I would choose does not offer Win 7 driver support. Trying to look to the future potential upgrades without sacrificing wherever possible; specifically, CPU and Video cards in future. SSD would be primary with 8GB OS footprint and 2X 1TB drives would operate as RAID mirror for storage data. Adding a second video card until DX11 options increase is always an option and I'd love to upgrade OPAMPS on sound card in future as well.
Check your email Hilbert, just submitted my setup. I just sent you an email.
Is OCZ still sponsoring / what's happening with that now?
