AOA - Dell delivers gargantuan gaming beast
Desktop PC: AMD FX-4100 / Asus M5A78L LE Motherboard / 8GB DDR3 RAM / GeForce GTX 550 Ti
Must admit, it looks badaxe. Wonder how overpriced it is? Is there still a nasty price delta between the US and the UK?
When the world will be better.
This is my opinion on it...
Its a big Plastic, Over priced POS! It even looks cheap to me...
Anyone can add more HD's that are 1TB each & card readers & Blu-ray drive & memory & ... at half the price!!!
Everything that they say is "up to" which means its extra $$$ if you want it in the system.
Stock cooling too...PPfff! No overclocking passed what they have it set to now as it's already at its limit for heat.
Not near enough fans & ventilation for an i7 setup to keep the heat down...

I imagine the retail price is quite high. If I were looking for a beast of rig and did not have the skillset to put it together, this unit would be on the short list.
As far as it being a POS, I would have to disagree. It does use some quality components inside.
I am currently running at just under 4Ghz with the stock cooler, 1 intake and 1 exhaust fan, both set at low speed in a P180 case. Max CPU temp I have seen is 54C. As an added bonus my rig runs completely silent..

The fluff tray feature I have sadly =( The top part of my Kandalf LCS looks like its been engineered for the efficient collection of dust and fluff, and you need like a toothbrush to clean it.
