Each month here at Guru3D.com we feature one of you guys, your PC, your DIY project. It is quite honestly amazing how much detail and dedication you put into an PC, and every now and then it really shows. We again had a LOT of entries coming in in the past five weeks, thank you very much for that. Out of the fifteen most original we in the end randomly picked one.
This rig of the month totally speaks for itself, an outstanding PC build, sheer beauty and then an excellent photo-shoot highlighting the craftsmanship you are about to see with his own custom build.
This months winner's RIG speaks all for itself. He made his PC his own battleship, in fact his theme for this build was Battlestar Galactica. We had several really good entries this month alright, but this build is just magnificent and a very worthy winner which I think you all can agree on.

Entry for Guru3D rig of the month
1. What is your name / nickname /age / occupation?
I'm Lukasz aka luke997, just turned 30 couple days ago and I'm software test tool engineer - basically I develop tools used in software testing. If I were to answer shortly why I think my rig is special, I would say it's because it accomplishes several goals which are very rarely seen together:
great looks with attention to every single screw and cable in it (long live Battlestar Galactica
extremely powerful - 3x GTX 480 + i7 980X - monster in a case not bench
custom fully watercooled
near silent with great temps under heavy OC
3D Vision Surround ready
very proudly from the ground (plan) up (build) done by myself
2. What did you first come here for?
I visit guru3d fairly regularly for about 3 years, mostly for excellent hardware reviews - GPU's and PSUs. I never registered on the forum though until now, encouraged by Pascal who is a great guy and has a brilliant rig.
3. What do you mainly use the system for?
I use my system mainly for gaming - I'm a big fan of 3D gaming and since I've started using NVIDIA's S3D I've never played anymore in 2D. Right now I can't wait for 3D Vision Surround drivers - my other 2 monitors scream to be used in games. Next would be benching - after all having all those gear water-cooled it would be crime not to show what it can do.
I also do a little bit of video editing of my holidays footage - though I have to agree with my wife - seems I can never find time to do it !
