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 June 2012 is unique ...
This months build comes from a guy with the nickname MybadOmen. To proof that PC enthusiasts can be found worldwide in all categories and ages we can proudly say that David Lane is a 40 year old guy. David has build an exemplary nice PC loaded with little things that trick the mind. Very little is not modified to be honest. The NZXT Switch 810 chassis for example has been totally toned down and Modded everywhere to allow tubing to run through the roof of the build. Also all the drive bays had to be Modified for the tubing and pumps to be mounted in the drive bay area. Also the top of the Case had to be Modded to fit the EK XTC 420 Rad with 6 140 mm fans. The whole motherboard tray he actually made from scratch. And there is much more going on, blood sweat and perhaps a tear went into this build. Without further ado, have a peek.
