Meet Alexander Hede and his Build
This months Guru3D Rig of the month, December 2012, build comes from Alexander Hede, aka Ace_finland, currently working as a development engineer for a plastic pipe producing companyThe build name suited it well, he names his rig Synthetic Anatomy. He decided to join in on a Cooler Master competition and transformed the very basic test-benches into something truly awesome as you are about to find out..
Let's have a look.
1. What is your name / nickname /age / occupation?
My name is Alexander Hede, aka Ace_finland, I turned 30 this year but still feel a lot younger . I’m currently working as a development engineer for a plastic pipe producing company. I have always been interested in computers and built my first computer when I was 12. For the last years my interest in computers have grown exponentially. It started with water cooling the CPU and after that there was no stopping me.
2. What did you first come here for?
I can't remember what first got me here cause its a very long time ago. I mostly come here for reviews and to update my build log and see other peoples progress on their build logs.
3. What do you mainly use the system for?
When i bought the components (few years back) it was intended for drawing in solid works, but a typical day for my computer is internet browsing, streaming, a little bit of Battlefield/CoD (way too much according to my girlfriend) and at winter time it helps heating the house because I never turn it off.
