    The Guru3D Rig of the Month March 2013 is all about style and a quality build. Though I'm sure many will love it it remains to be one of these hate/love builds. We think it's impressive alright and ...

    Thanks for the comments guys. This is my first rig which took me quite a while to build and source out the right components.

    I actually did two different sets of cables sleeving. Initial color scheme was Red/Black. But when I changed my GPU from XFX 7970 xfire > MSI 680GTX SLI, I took the chance to change the layout a bit and also changed the color scheme to Red/Black/White to fit into the ROG and also to have white sleeved cables to go with my white casing.

    Really glad that I won, at least my wife wont complain of me wasting so much Vitamin M on the rig haha

    very nice, can't say that I'll ever want to spend the time or the money on setting that type of build up. Looking to do a new one myself but can't see myself going this far mostly in costs.

    Hi all, I dont think I am going for Nividia Surround. I think 1 X 27inch (2560 X 1440) setup is fine for me at the moment especially my newborn is arriving really soon. So space is needed for her cot. I did considered triple 2560 screens few months back but I dropped the idea as the screen would take almost 160cm of the table which I still have to place my speakers and rig on it.

    Dont think I will be going for Titan soon. But might be more practical to add in one or two more 680s to do tri or quad SLI.


    :)

    Thank you both Guru3D and OCZ for the prize. I am very happy to receive this LBSD (Little Blue Speed Demon) today at my doorstep.

    I will replace my Samsung P810 Sata II drive with the new OCZ Vector SSD which I had received.

    Will be installing my application and games in it, making sure that the loading of games will be much faster than the predecessor.

    Thank you all once again!

    Hi all, glad to announce that I had completed a new project codename Project Rampage II. This is the successor of the ROTM March 2013 contest winner entry. Will be posting the completed rig video and photos soon.

    One of my favorite places to read on this site is the "Rig of the Month" ... I like being impressed ... lol lol.

    Congratulations on the win! Very impressive rig ... and SUPER COOL that there are no fingerprints on any of your components in the pictures ... I admire your "neat" factor! :D
