    This month we're visiting Cape Town, South Africa where ov3rvolt perhaps slightly pays some respect to Prince's Purple Rain. Then again, that was not the idea when he started building his rig two y...

    What a beautiful rig. I wish I had the time and skill to do something like that with my rig.
    Excellent effort. Look forward to seeing 2.0 :)

    Wow looks really nice. I like what he did with the left and right side, letting the coolant flow in "panel" style canals, very neat.

    Amazing rig. I love the use of fittings instead of bends, they add that nice metalic glossy look to the whole build, also the color scheme is great. The only thing I don't like is the use of an 4 core i5 in combination with 1080ti. Also maybe delid the cpu if you have temp problems ?

    Other than that, a lot of hard work, congratz.

    Btw. if you can't ship to Africa does that mean he's not getting the headset he won here ?

    We (Corsair) can likely ship there, however people from countries that are in a problemsome region will receive 100 USD reimbursed as replacement gift.

    It is so beautiful and pure that it looks like a 3d computer drawn picture.

    Amazing.

    This is a great looking rig. Sadly, I care too much about price/performance and airflow to ever submit my rig in this competition. Congrats on winning, @ov3rvolt!

    I don't know dude, if you build a rig for $1500 and it can trash any pre-build PCs that companies sell with better performance and superior cooling, I will vote for it :)

    That's actually not that hard to do. It just wouldn't get up to Rig of the Month, since it probably will look a lot more simple and have little RGB and flashy things extra :D

    Really great build

    What do you call the flat acrylic flow panels? And where do you buy them?

    Thank you appreciate the comments. I'd like to somehow work a second rad in there to sort out the temps
