    3XS Great White - Dream PC Winner 2008

    Sorry for all the reflections, extremely hard to take pictures of a mirror surface

    Sexiest PC in the world? We think so

    Lots of unnecessary tubing and the coils aren't evenly spaced, maybe i have OCD but

    It's 4.98*

    lovely pics!
    i would want to see a simple 2-way SLI configuration where you would use the same tubing for the vga/cpu, but a black 10mm for chipsets etc

    Top Secret

    The system was designed and built in house, Laser cutters did the laser cutting and the chromers (even a word) did the electroplated chroming

    Sort of a fair point on the tubing, but bear in mind it’s a triple loop set up

    Am I really seeing three water-cooled graphics cards? I do love the tubing, nice contrast going on.

    I tell you what, this could be the prettiest pc ever if it were put in a dust-free case and never touched. Otherwise the dust and finger smudges would ruin the sheen pretty quickly. On a practical level, a matte black finish like on the IBM thinkcentres is where the money is.

    Come on, spill the spec so we can drool.

    Yeah, a triple loop was gonna be tight in there no matter what, but i was on about the cards, can get little things to go between the blocks so you dont need tubing.

    4th pic - dont tell me its running that in the store is it? Get some games on it !!!

    It's 4.98*
