AMD Forum Rig Of The Month is where You, the Forum members, can show case your work. Many of us have many weeks of love, labor, blood, sweat and tears in our builds. We want to see the fruits of your labor. We post this thread here because we ask that our peers, all members of this forum, to vote and tell us what one they like the best.

Voting has now commenced. New submissions will not be accepted. I encourage you to submit to the following month instead. Voting will take place from now until May 27th, and the winner will earn the right for the badge, runner up his.



While I cannot enforce this, I request that zero-post accounts not vote, it destroys the honor of this competition, and nobody wants to win with dishonor, right?

Simple Systems like the H50, seen in PC-GURU's rig, can easily get your CPU down to ambient room temperatures. (for about the same price as a High End Air like the Megahalems in Buckshots rig) More complex systems refrigerate the water to get below ambient. This takes more parts, power, money and maintenance, then your simple systems but for some overclockers it is worth it...............

There are all ranges if Air coolers and water cooled systems, most do well and all fit into the builders taste and price range.

Sorry PC-GURU and Buckshot for picking on you two........

No worries brother! We are here to set examples and to lend a hand when needed. Can't wait to get my new MoBo so that I can get my custom water cooling installed finally!!!

Seeings how the projected socket for the Bulldozer is going to be an AM3 socket, I have decided to pull the trigger on a pair of 5870s.... in a month or two more I will do it again .......... Them combined with the processing power of the Bulldozer I should have a beast of a machine for the Raptor Pit's Raptor Bowl in February. When it is time for a water cooled rig, BuckShot you and I are going to have to get together so you can give me some pointers on what to get and where to get it from.
