Although many enthusiasts prefer the satisfaction of building their own PC, there's still a solid market for pre-fabbed gaming machines. Asus and a handful of other companies seem to understand...

So it shows a couple of what look like 60-80mm fans that dont appear to get any intake ventilation when closed up. Yea thats a great idea.

Complete and Total, Undeniable Waste of Money

They could of made mesh on the sides so the fans are used even when there closed. Kinda makes you have to leave them open all the time to get the best cooling.

Nice surround speaker :p

Retail PC's are more likely overpriced by wastes like these.

3960x: ~$950
690: ~$1000
2X 128gb SSDs: ~$650
The case: ~$500 for novelty
Liquid cooling: ~$250
2 TB HDD: ~$150
16gb Ram (Doubtful that they'd use cheap stuff): ~$250
Sonar: ~$90

That's about $3850 give or take depending on where they get the pieces. Most likely a 15% overhead for "professional" installation. That puts this baby at about $4430...again, give or take. Does anyone agree with my very very rough suggestions? This isn't even counting that blu ray burner nor the power supply that they'd need to run this beast.

Looking at at least $5000 there, and then you can add a 2nd 690 +$1000, more SSD +$1000, I wouldn't be surprised if the top tier unit is approaching the $8000 mark. All for something that would likely never be used to its full potential.

that was the most ridiculous video I have ever seen, but then it was so stupid that I laughed. I was expecting the tower to turn into something complicated, I don't know why.

I would think that the people who don't care for building their own rig would probably be the kind of people who like thins like this. So who knows, maybe a good move by Asus.

Eh, actually, it's almost critical that you run a computer in an enclosure - otherwise the fans are far less effective. A lot of folks think that out in the open does better cooling, but rather, airflow... having airflow is what keeps it cool enough.

2 x 128gb ssds not 500 more like 200 or maybe less as its a bulk deal.
This boz is one for the show-offs. Why not ? if you got the muliks go for it.
