9. What's the best part of your rig?
To me it has to be the Unique Dual Loop Water-cooling. The way it is set up is Very Unique. It actually travels up through the roof of the build and shows the coolant flowing the the edge of the top. Also it has 2 Pumps and 4 reservoirs.Yup that's right 4 !
10. Any dislikes, things you should not have bought?
Nah I think I'm pretty happy with the parts in the build and it performs very well.
11. Did you modify anything ? cases/video cards/other? Did you do it yourself? Walk us through it.
Oh boy this would take forever to explain all the mods. I will try to Narrow it down. The NZXT Switch 810 Case has been totally ton 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 i made from scratch, Modded the PSU,All fans where taken apart and painted, everything was sleeved or Paracorded, Made a whole new PSU Rad cover for the bottom which is holding a EK XTC 280 rad with 4 140mm fans. Custom Decals ,Custom Painting, Di noc there is just so many things to lists like led's i made up and wiring harnesses and it keeps going.
12. Your 3DMark06 / 3DMark Vantage score (P+GPU)
I haven't run these tests yet with the build. I ran Cinebench at 5.2Ghz 8 Threads 104 for graphics and broke 10 points for CPU.
Wasn't really planning on benching this build but can later if necessary. (I have other builds for benching, not that this wont wont do well)
13. Do you have any Future updates planned ?
Yes some Decals may be added to the Outside , All the Razer Mass Effect 3 Gaming gear is in the mail (Keyboard,Mouse,Mouse Pad)
Also a Window but that's still kinda a secret at the Moment.

Guru3D Rig of the Month - August 2012
This months build comes from a Mikkel Olsen. At 27 years of age Mikkel probably did not build the most beautiful game PC we have had submitted, but his room nearly is one huge PC, a freakish gaming please heaven for many of you. The guy has a lot going on in there as you are about to find out. Come to think of it, the guy should put up some Miami Vice signs in there to get that good old 80'ies feel to it :)

Guru3D Rig of the Month - June 2012
One person we have been following closely on his build-log is Eric Soeters from the Netherlands, and although his build still is not 100% finished, it's nearly there and just amazing. He has built the chassis from ground up including some very hard work. The end result is his new PC called the "Exo-S", we'll just leave the explanation and working to the man himself as the only thing that is left after you have seen this build is to clap your hands and yell bravo ...
