Drool: Maingear's New OC'd Core i7 Gaming Rigs

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 8 comments

Well, I'll be damned if Maingear hasn't just given me that Friday feeling on a damp and dreary, rainy Thursday.

Maingear yesterday announced that it has started shipping a bad-ass new line of gaming rigs that are enough to make your pulse quicken. Ranging from $2,249 to a dream crushing $5,149, the top of the line F1X packs an overclocked Core i7, maintenance free X20 watercooling, 12GB of triple–channel DDR3 RAM, a Blu-ray burner, and last but certainly not least, an 80GB SSD to complement the 1.5TB of regular HDD storage.

Peep the specs below and if anyone happens to have a spare five grand lying around and is feeling philanthropic, you know where to find me.

And, if you're one of those harsh but realistic people who thinks believes knows it's not just what's on the inside that counts, these machines are also super sleek.

Oooh pretty!

    I was going to complain about those pathetic overclocks, then I saw the coolers used and understood why.

    Still, they are most pretty but the PSUs are overkill surely? A good 850W will drive 2 5870s with plenty of headroom.

    All of those specs list XFire setups, yet every photo clearly shows one graphics card.

    Surely by the time 12gb of ram is actually useful the rest of the specs will be mid-range and dissapointing?

    Worthless e-peen specs with no actual consideration of performance per £...

    Well - if it was CAD you wouldn't have mainstream graphics cards. If it was image manipulation you wouldn't have two graphics cards. If it was Audio / Video manipulation you'd have an M-audio card and some decent video capture hardware, stock trading doesn't need anything like this, etc etc etc and if it's gaming it's totally OTT e-peen. :o ) So you'd spend 5k on something that's okay/feature limited at best for the specialist roles and insanely overpriced for gaming... bargin!

    Unless you use it for all of the above!
