    It's like an inverted iMac Pro...there's some terrible product designer's out there. Just wow. It's just space inefficient, needs multiple cooling set-ups, ugly (subjectively).

    It's nice to see a different take, but it's certainly not for me. They've really missed a few tricks with cooling too.

    I think it's a neat idea actually; isolating GPU heat from CPU heat in an attractive (IMO) package. Pricing aside, the sticking point for me is (this we agree on) is that it will take up a lot of space compared with a normal tower. Though I guess if you've got the space for it, it's great.

    Re: CyberPowerPC launches eye-catching Trinity gaming PC

    I'd give the case a try last time I looked for one though they weren't available in the UK or Europe. I like the idea of separating the components to, at the moment if i'm playing a demanding game my msi gtx 970 pumps all its heat straight through my cpu's radiator which I guess actually warms the cpu up a fair amount.

    "Each of the three steel blade casings weighs a hefty 5Kg unpopulated."

    Is that right? That's the heaviest case I've ever seen. Not even considering how ugly and inefficient it is, I would not want a 20kg+ PC! Nice idea but back to the drawing board I think.

    It's the same as a Silverstone Fortress FT02 (~15Kg). Fully built and because there are no good grip points my FT02 is hard to carry, good thing I don't move it often!

    I actually like the look of this case, it's a good statement case for an exhibition or something - major downside is the footprint, it won't sit nicely by or on the end of a desk. Especially for an expansion limited ITX design it's huge.

    Re: CyberPowerPC launches eye-catching Trinity gaming PC

    My Antec Fusion runs two thermal zones using just some careful layout and a thin metal partition. That keeps the PSU & hard drives that want to be kept cool away from the CPU and GPU which can tolerate far higher temperatures.

    Also, limiting to a single graphics card seems to rule out the serious gamers as well as people like me that want really quiet machines.

    Just give me a scale model of an old Cray XMP for Mini ITX with room for a graphics card going up the middle and a fan at the top. Job done, old gits like me will buy them at least

    in a 'Y' configuration, perched upon a single blade

    Re: CyberPowerPC launches eye-catching Trinity gaming PC

    Mini-ITX in a full tower footprint, with none of the advantages. No SLI. Semi-limited storage. Questionable cooling. Custom power supply (which is always a non-starter for me). I guess you can put a fin on top while in the 2blade configuration, paint it white and silver, and geek out on the Star Wars Tie-fighter case...

    Re: CyberPowerPC launches eye-catching Trinity gaming PC

    Saw a vid of this thing a while back, probably at a show or somesuch. Had red LED lighting, IIRC.

    Looks funky and is a fancy mod/build/thing, but I doubt I'd ever own one.

    I have to admit I really like the look of it, but it seriously falls down on practicality. Nice to see companies doing *something* different though, when things like http://hexus.net/tech/news/chassis/8...ternal-layout/ are touted as being innovative....

    I would love to watch someone put this build together...especially running all the cables through that center junction.

    It sounds like it might actually be easier than expected, since you would have less of a cable-routing issue and interference with other components...
