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. This months entry oozes in style yet remains a minimalist build. For 2011 we upped the prize that you can win a little.
The DIY build of march 2011 is just simple and nice, meet Ant Cook aka Outrance, who works as System Administrator. He has an awesome PC build, very nice. We a selection of some quality components he started building his all liquid cooled RIG. A top notch build, worthy of being Guru3D's Rig of the Month March 2011.

Meet the Guru3D rig of the month winner:
1. What is your name / nickname /age / occupation?
Ant Cook, forum name: outrance, 30 years old and I work as a Systems Admin for a local research institute. The center actually has a NVIDIA Tesla installation running 200 GPUs, which is pretty cool (although I don't actually work in that part of the institute).
2. What did you first come here for?
I first came here back in 2005 in search of the latest beta drivers for my NVIDIA GPU. Also to check out the latest builds of Rivatuner. Then there were the articles, forums, news and eventually one of my favorites, the Vault of Fail
3. What do you mainly use the system for?
I'd like to say music production, but that has taken a back seat to gaming lately. But my PC must be fully capable of running the latest audio software, this is where 16Gbâs of RAM can get used up pretty quick. I really struggled with 4GB, having to constantly stream from disk and conserve RAM by freezing tracks. With my new build I don't have those restrictions.
