Maingear ePhex

  • Summary: Adrenaline junkies might wonder why Maingear didn’t push it to, say, 4.5GHz, but we demand stability. We put the box through an overnight Prime95 run and it never crashed. Likewise, we subjected it to a burn-in using a wickedly mean double-secret Intel utility and the machine ran rock solid. So, if you’re able to swallow the price and the noise, you’re unlikely to find a faster machine today.
  • Pros: Outpaces all other machines we've tested in every benchmark.
  • Cons: A tad loud and priced higher than most people's cars.

  • Excerpt: Intel's new fastest processor ever, the QX9770, powers Maingear's impressive ePhex gaming box, and a bevy of extras make attractive icing on the cake—as long as you don't crave high-res DirectX10.
  • Pros: Excellent performance overall, Blu-ray and HD DVD combo drive lets you avoid HD format wars, Lots of free games included, Nice warranty
  • Cons: Expensive, Below-average DirectX 10 gaming performance
