    Awesome. Well done. I recall there was another similar desk rig (not wood) with glass top a few years ago here. That was incredible too.

    Or you can use cheapo materials and be creative, you'll have the very same chances of winning. But somehow complaining is easier then actually building something eh ?

    C'mon Hilbert, I didn't mean it like that, why are you always so gruffy.
    Of course you can get featured when you're creative but you have more chance to get featured if you have two titans in your rig :D

    Great looking build! Clean design, eyecandy for sure, specs are last thing I was interested about when I was looking/reading this article, but in this case monster(s) inside this table is nice bonus. As time passes I'm more into this to make myself something similar, atm I'm harvesting ideas from projects like this, maybe next year...

    No I am not gruffy, but you make a bold claim there as if the guy won because he spends cash on it. I find remarks like that a bit insulting to the guys that enter the competition.

    Now, the components used (pricing wise) have absolutely no say in this. Both June and July had like a GeForce GTX 670 in their rigs, not exactly Titans ? In fact similar cards that you have in your system. But fact is, people that build a special rig tend to build something extraordinary and thus tend to use better and more expensive components as well, these builds need to last them years. So these guys are creative and spends heaps of time to build something special, maybe even work a year on a build spending their hard earned cash, and within a couple of words you claim you can win as along as you can spend enough cash. I find these remarks somewhat insulting to the modders that spend time & money on these incredibly difficult builds, hence my reply directed to you that way.

    You are free to enter the competition, and with a creative idea you have as much chance of winning, even with your Gigabyte GTX 670 SLI 2GB setup.

    I feel like they should win every month, god damn they are cool but also practical.
    As opposed to the pyramid one, which is nice, but a highly impractical shape.

    Guys above doesn't have a monster GPU's in their rig but still they won the RotM competition here on Guru3D. It's not about how much money you've burned into something like this, it's all about being creative + how much time, knowledge, sweat, tears, hair pulled from a head, blood (few litres at least in my case for all these years, not to mention still visible numerous cuts and burns on my hands and fingers from bending, cutting and welding work with bare metal), work until late hours, wife complainings, hours spend doing this and not spending that time with kids/wife/friends... etc you've "integrated" into something like this. As a old school modder I find a bit insulting your thoughts that you can easiliy win a RotM competition if you spend 10.000$ on latest state of the art hardware. Try to build from the scratch something creative under 500$, send it here for RotM and I'm sure no one will complain about outdated hardware inside...

    Allright Hilbert, I understand, it sounded a bit cheeky and impertinent.
    I apologize.

    Nice Rig,
    I like the name The baby grand.

    It kind of looks like one of them baby grand pianos.
