  • Impressively overclocked Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge CPU sets new price-performance standard; overclocked graphics card provides gaming performance boost; polished build quality; comparatively power-efficient.
  • Insane benchmark scores. Six-core/12-stream overclocked processor. Beautiful design. Good build quality. Accessible drive bays. Plethora of ports, including USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire.


  • Drive bay cable rigging could be tidier; you'll want a beefier power supply than the one configured here to support a second graphics card.
  • Insanely expensive. Huge. Loud fans when set to full speed. Only one-year warranty on parts. DIY upgrades are problematic. C: drive is a little small.
