Falcon Northwest Mach V Review
7 December 2014
Conclusion: The exact Mach V we reviewed will set you back a shocking $8,484. Subtract the costly paint job, however, and you’re looking at about $7,300. That’s still a wheelbarrow of cash and more than the $6,300 Origin Millennium we recently reviewed, but the Mach V is slightly more powerful. When the two are similarly configured the Origin is close to $7,450. Falcon’s Mach V is also a bit quicker, a bit more attractive and generates significantly less noise.
Pros: Solid, attractive case, Excellent performance in all benchmarks, Surprisingly quiet, Excellent warranty, Competitively priced
Excerpt: Who came up with the concept of a vertically oriented motherboard that positions the graphics cards upright so the tremendous heat they generate vents straight up? It’s hard to say who first had the idea—we’ve seen cases that feature this design, and the Main-Gear Shift PC that we reviewed in June 2010 took the same approach.
Pros: A quad-core that can almost run with the hexa-cores.
