    I fail to understand why this is rig of the month.
    LED of the month maybe.
    Every bend is deformed causing a pinch point.
    that is good enough reason not to be rig of the month.

    While the tubing didn't go through a mandrel bender I can still appreciate it and see why it is the rig of the month. Albeit I hate the orange but that is a personal taste issue. The desk setup is pretty nice.

    When I was in university, I always envied that most of the forum uses high end graphic cards with powerful cpu in the mean time I had to settle with some low end gpu and cpu that I bought with my little savings. Now I am a software engineer, but now there is economic crisis in country and I have to work for 5 months without eating anything to buy something like this. It is really depressing to read 2080 ti or any high end component threads as people can easily give 1000+ euros for some graphics card without struggle or thinking tomorrow.

    Well, nice build, play for me at 4k too (-;

    peachy lmao
    No and i wouldn't unless it was.

    Maybe now someone has pointed it out he may improve it.
    I didnt just criticise without showing the means to fix.

    Very nice overall setup there, good job! I'm surprised to see another builder not overclocking again, to me water cooling and high end builds are designed for overclocking, so it just seems like an oxymoron to me!

    Yeah, I just think it always makes sense to overclock to whatever max you can while retaining a cool & quiet or silent system - just seems a waste to have components not running optimised. On the same token, if you're gonna leave frequencies at stock, may as well undervolt the CPU while you're at it.

    thx for the kind replies. Lovers gonna love it, haters will be haters. to each his own opinion ;)

    Dont have much experience in bending tubes,but i challenge anyone to get perfect bends with some PTEG or acrylic tubes as a rookie. a bloody pain in the butt i tell ya :p

    yes that million dollars pc looks good,but you cant compare bending ``metal`` pipes with a mandrel bender with some ``plastic`` tubes bended by hand. Althoug i presume more skilled modders can get some real nice bends (read : shitloads of trial and error :D )

    That said,thx for having my rig up @ the front page.always nice when youre work is appreciated

    I wouldn't take much notice of the criticism! Bending acrylic tubing is notoriously tricky. The first time I did it it took me ages to get the knack and get it right. You have to get the temperature of the tube just right to get the perfect bend. I remember going through alot of tubing. Even now I've done it a few times it's still a slow process - especially compared to traditional fexi-tubing!

    Nice clean rig btw. :)

    Love it! I still don't have the balls to water cool. When I do, I don't think it will turn out this good. Nice work!
