Made it to the "SLI Rig Of The Month"!
So, as title says, I made it to the SLI Rig Of The Month!

You guys probably remember my worklog on the "Worklog" section ? XETM Project**

Well, My rig is posted here : SLI PC Rig of the Month - January 2008 Winner

Can't believe i made it there! Years ago i was dreaming on a UFO case which would have watercooling but had a terrible cable management on Nvidia's SLI Rig Of The Month page... Well, now it's my turn! + With better cable management!

Excellent work Patriote.. You know sometimes hard work pays off, thats what happened to you..

Congrats m8, I'm sure Hardware Canucks is proud of you :punk:

HEY!!! Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!! What do you win?

I can't BELIEVE they allowed this:


My biggest problem for this build was with my EVGA 680i A1 motherboard. I've went through 2 of them before finding one that wouldn't die on me or would do what I want it to do. The first one I had bought from a friend, he had an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 running at 4GHz, worked perfectly fine but only for the first few boots.
I had a great laugh when I read that...

I have the same table for my computer. Would like to ask you if your keyboard tray is able to lock in place when sliding it out of your desk? Mine doesn't and I keep pushing in with the arm rests of my chair.

Congratulations James, we all know how much you worked on that rig, and how many issues you had. That's the icing on the cake! And Sky, there is nothing wrong with the truth... he did go through 2 boards. I'm surprised too that nVidia let that one go - and if they didn't, it would have been a shame.

Because we all know that computer parts aren't perfect, and they will / do fail.

Good Job!!

It's nice to see some recognition for all the hard work you put into it.

Yeah, I laughed when I saw the part about the dying mobo's. Great job on seeing that project through to the end!
