Join us for #MicroCenterMadness all throughout the month of March! We're accepting all challengers to the Build Showcase over the next few weeks to compete for a Micro Center prize pack, stuffed with goodies and gift cards.
We have two prize packs to give away, one given out randomly and one to be fought for in the Build Bracket! After the entry period ends, the Micro Center forum team will be selecting our top eight builds based on the following criteria:
· Photo quality
· Quality of description of the post
· Quality of cable management
· Uniqueness of build or theme
· How the PC fits into the full setup
And from there, its up to the forum to decide the winner! We’ll be randomly seeding each build for head-to-head voting until only one remains: our #MicroCenterMadness winner!

Simply submit your build to the build showcase with #MicroCenterMadness in the title before March 26th to be entered! If you’ve recently submitted to build showcase, you’re still eligible: just update your submission to include #MicroCenterMadness and you’ll be entered. On March 29th we’ll be randomly drawing one builder to win a Micro Center prize pack AND announcing the first round of voting!
For a bonus entry into the random drawing, come back and post a link to your build in the comments (and maybe hype it up a little… some positive buzz never hurt your bracket chances)!
Voting will run in waves from March 29th 12:01pm EST to April 8th 12:01pm EST. The winner of the second Micro Center Prize Pack will be notified on April 8th.

Built this just after release on 5/7/19. I waited for a year and a half from when I really should have upgraded to get Ryzen 3000 and Radeon Navi. When I saw the 5700 XT Anniversary Edition announced, I decided then and there that I would build my PC around that aesthetic. Also had to use a hack saw on this build. Not the best photographer, but hopefully it shows the love and care I put into this build.
edit: Can't believe I forgot to mention that after missing the 5/7 drop and the first restock for the 3900X, I drove from Chicago to the St. Louis Microcenter to get my hands on one. It felt good to finally put it together.
I really like the burnt orange colors - gives it almost a western feeling!
A great build - the purples and greens are a nice touch!

Just uploaded my build this morning and showing off some of my work. build this pc last year and reorganize everything recently, each month has it own theme but i left it on the rainbow mode since alot of people i know like the color mix.
I've been wanting an all white ROG's build, and I dreamt of it for 3 years. I did it!
So proud to own this! Thank you Micro Center for most of the parts <3
I was a PC noob and I had to make my first build special, especially after everyone looked down on me for being a counsel player well guess who has the last laugh hahaha https://www.microcenter.com/buildpost/7102/darth-maul?preview=yes
Doesn't look like your link is working and be sure to add #MicroCenterMadness in your build title to enter!
Here is my PC "Stealth" I hope to stream on Twitch and make funny videos I can upload to YouTube. I hope I'm able to change lives and make people happy by watching me even if it is only a single person I made smile that whole day I want to make people happy and kick a laugh out of them at least once. I hope to eventually one day give back to my fans and do amazing things like a 12-hour charity stream! I'm aiming big and I'm aiming strong and with my hard work and dedication, I will make my dreams come true and change lives. I wish the best of luck to everyone, have fun and take care!
My brother told me I should post my build here.
Added my build to the showcases!(err, whenever it gets approved) https://www.microcenter.com/buildpost/7142/transparent-lcd-side-panel-matx-build-microcentermadness!
I think this is one of the few, if only, mATX builds I've found on the net with a transparent side panel LCD. Fun fact, I recently broke the whole mod when cleaning out the system and had to make it all again from scratch. Oops!

I just finished putting "The Sign of the Times" together yesterday and leak testing overnight. So far so good but when you spot the sign, you'll know why I named it that and why it technically still isn't finished.
Can I get any pity points from the judges??
My first custom water cooled pc.
Maybe not pity points, but you definitely got the forum team laughing!
I love it, best of luck turning that paper GPU into a real one :)
First ever build! Not the flashiest but gets the job done!
Once my build is validated I will make sure to post the link which shows greater details of my components.
Definitely was worth all the effort
@Jjr279 I just started playing ff7 on ps5 and it looks very pretty. I never played it before but always heard great things. The game is actually free this month on ps plus.
Here is my Micro Center build from November 2020! It was an availability focused build. It turned out to be camouflage part white and black components. It is an awesome computer!
I hope I'm not too late, but I probably am, anyway here's my mess. https://www.microcenter.com/buildpost/7233/the-placeholder?preview=yes
Hey, hopefully I am not to late for the bonus giveaway, didn't see about that part till today (No worries, I still submitted it on the form ahead of the due date). Anyways this is my first PC Build that I built a few weeks ago.
Great budget build looks amazing enjoy it!
Looks really good! great cpu choice!
I Like the dual monitor set up and i really like the cable extensions on your pc they look great!
I really like your build i recommend upgrading the GPU once you can unless you're not doing anything that needs a good GPU but enjoy it looks great!
This build is just crazy good looks amazing the theme is awesome and all the matching colors make this pc look 10/10 and I'm pretty sure performs 10/10 probably the best pc build I've seen in a while!
I really love these types of builds there unique and hard to build it that's why there so impressive to me not only that but the fact your water-cooled it makes it 10x's better looks amazing and I hope ur able to get a good GPU once the inflation is over.
I Really like the cyberpunk theme and the white color theme looks great and i really like your RAM not many people use it but I personlly like it.
