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.


While I can not 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? Voting will from now until August 5th. Any ties will then be put in a new thread for a tie breaker, With just the rigs that are tied for that place.

In respect that This months Voting thread is up so late, I think we can hold off until August threads to update pictures. Our contestant list has grown to 13 entrants what a number.

Let the best Rig Win!!

Again I am sorry for not getting this up sooner. Thanks to everyone for your cooperation, and support. I have been told more then once that I have made this thread what it is, but I think the truth is really you guys that submit your pictures, and all the people that Vote that had made this thread what it is.
