You guys might remember that I gave away a computer during my 2022 Labor Day LAN party. Well, this Thermaltake Level-10 GT was the original case from what I gave away. I wanted to save this case, so I had bought a new LAN COOL case in August to house the older components that were in the Thermaltake Level-10 GT (FX CPU, stuff like that). Meanwhile, I won the Rig of the Month contest in September with my Purrfection build, so I had the two prizes of a B350 Gigabyte motherboard and an AMD 3600X CPU. I figured I would use those in the new build, but I also had an AMD 3950X CPU and an AMD 5600 CPU lying around too. What to do? Try them all, and that's what I did.

Our friend @eebiii submitted his creation back in June when he entered the Rig of the Month contest. It caught my attention right away for one simple reason, the name! Fire & Ice.
I had to click on the post to learn more about the mod and the builder. Once I saw the pictures and read his short description I sent a PM to him inviting him to re-submit his rig for the month of July because in my opinion Fire and Ice is very impressive.
While roaming around on the third floor of our HQ I ran into this! An AMD Guitar Mod. I asked the folks that sit nearby the mod about the builder, and sadly no one knows who created it. So, let's say it's by an "unknown artist"? That being said, I was surprised to find a mod, right here at our HQ, and even more surprised to see it turn on! It works! It's a small form factor AMD APU-based system complete with two fans.
This mod is by @Hound_Meta1 . He shared it with us back in February when he entered the February Rig of the Month Contest. I was going through all the entries and this one stood out. It's one of my personal favorites, just look at the pictures!
Here is how Hound_Meta1 described his creation: "This is a build I started about two years ago and was looking for inspirations and ideas for a theme, but I soon noticed that every build I saw at the time was just variants of the same futuristic, RGB, over-the-top light show, so I decided to do something different..."
