We have entered a tiebreaker for winner and runner up in the AMD Forums Rig Of The Month contest. This month was very close in the votes. 1-4th places were separated by one point. So now it is a final showdown between two members tied for first. The winner here will get the Rig Of The Month, and the other will get Runner up.

Remember, the winner here goes on to AMD Forum Rig Of The Year, and your Rig will be posted in the ROTY thread for all to view until December.

Aus-Amdfan VS Marioland

Who will prevail?? Only you can say!

Voting from now until May 9th! Good Luck!!!!!!!

Thanks to everyone who voted.

That's a nice rig aus-amdfan, some good custom work you put into it. Can't say the same for my rig, as nothing in it is custom. You should win this one.

Nice 8)

Got to a point where my old case was holding back any plans for the future. So I went all out. Can't bevieve everything fit looking back at it.

Watch, everything will start getting smaller for the enthusiast market.

Congratulations!!!

Aus-Amdfan Is the Winner of the AMD Forum Rig Of The Month.
Marioland is the Runner up.

This has got to be the first Split decision for the Winner and Runner up. With 24 total votes, it was still a tie. I had devised a method to break the tie if it came down to this and was going to break each rig down and award points for different categories of the build. The Rig with the most points at the end was going to be the winner. Then I was going to make a post that would break it all down. This way everyone would know that I didn't just flip a coin to choose. I did not have to do this however because in a privet message to me Marioland respectfully requested that Aus-Amdfan take the win, and that he was going to withdraw from the next months competitions until he redid his rig.

So by merit of Marioland, Aus-Amdfan will take the win for this month.................

Canis-X ...... If you would, please present the Badges.......

Thanks everyone. It always seems like it comes down to the wire when I'm involved in the later stages of voting. Good job to all the participants, great rigs.

Congratulations aus-amdfan, please don't let my decision take away from your win. You deserve every bit of recognition your rig has garnered.

Thank you Canis-X for the badge. Tiny pic works for me now, amazing what a fresh install does. And thanks to X-Tremedreamer for all your time and work to keep this going.
