That's pretty awesome. too bad I don't have the tools for this. I might stick a garden hose roller onto the side so my headphone cord does not get tangled under my chair haha.

Give it a go! Remember we are running contest and giving away prizes for people who enter. So even if you don't win the competition you can still walk away with some gear!

Was going to hit the sign up button, but the following requirements kill it for me:

Feel free to let your imagination run wild but your Mod must use both GIGABYTE Motherboards, GIGABYTE Graphic Cards, and must also include a Liquid Cooling element.

I have a Gigabyte board I can use, but I'm not going to go purchase a new Gigabyte GPU just to qualify to enter. Also I don't do water cooling, too expensive and time consuming for maintenance.

Ouch the 27th of this month?, not a good time for me right now, next month I will have more free time to pick out a case and plan out the mod.
Also don't have $500 - 700 to spend on a CPU and ram to get that platform up and running even if I did win it, would rather what money I can spare go to the case and materials.
So it looks like I'll be skipping this competition, good luck to those that do qualify to enter.
