From the design to components, some of these rigs have downright made us drool.

As part of their celebration of the annual Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit, international computer manufacturer MSI has once again hosted a Rig modding competition inviting the Philippines’ PC builders and enthusiasts in a display of custom built PC setups which can be inspired by different pop culture elements and, of course, powered by MSI products.

A total of 10 rigs are showcased in the competition, but only 3 of them will get to win cash prizes and as well as MSI products like motherboards, GPUs, peripherals and merchandise.
