    Insanely good.

    But I don't believe you Hexus. Please send the machine to my house so I can do some long term verification

    Just buy one! Then you can spend as you long as like verifying that it's a benchmark-masher

    If you can afford the machine, you can afford the leccy, I guess.

    A back-of-the-envelope calculation, based on three hours full-on gaming and three hours idling, using an average 15p per kilowatt hour, seven days a week, comes to around £150 per year.

    So... I don't really get where the cables go on this thing. You've got all this crap plugged in the top, but does it all fit under that grill easily enough? And then the cables run out through the hole in the rear panel?

    I can't believe that on such an expensive, niche build, it's still stock cooling / air cooled.

    I'd love to know how many of these they sell...

    And it's not like they've never water cooled before.

    I've got the FT03, and it really does work surprisingly well. What's more is that it makes it so easy to change cables around if you need to at any point.

    I don't doubt they'll be doing an equivalent with water cooling. Given the complications that can be involved with watercooling - harder to upgrade, especially if you didn't put the system together, and more to keep an eye on and maintain, it's not inconceivable that people might prefer an aircooled option.

    ...Just about puked in my own lap. It's hard enough to get your hands on 1 GTX 690 for the price it's going for. TWO!? Mind has been blown.
