What do you need to do ? Simply answer a few question. Which components are used, if there are any modifications or overclocks, which parts they like, which parts they don't; you get the idea. :-) Then we’ll do a little write-up about it and post it for the world to see along with a selection of visual references.
Why? ‘Cause we’re nosey bastards! Heh, nah, we are sure everyone who visits this site or a site like this has at least this one thing in common - the ability to appreciate some nice PC hardware. So what better way to get to know your fellow Guru’s pride and joy (or awkward failure) than to read about it and check out some pics.
It’s a great way to show off your months of over-time to purchase that shiny new high-end video card, or a nice way to show off that case-mod you just finished after many hours of hard work. Maybe you just want your system featured on one of the biggest hardware sites in the world - can't say I blame you. ;-)
Who knows, you might learn something. I'm sure we've all struggled with cable tidying before, and maybe a rig featured here will have awesomely tidy cables for which the author is willing to reveal their tips and tricks.
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. The Rig of the month is sponsored by Corsair. Each monthly winner will get a nice prize as reward. This competition runs world-wide, however due to delivery and customs issues the following countries and continents Russia, South America and Africa will not be shipped a prize, instead Corsair will give you a 100 USD consolidation prize as compensation.
