OC3D & Be Quiet @ LITS 2011

Armari XCP

Whilst the 3XS Swordfish is obviously the star in "bigness" terms, back down to low earth orbit we spot an equally intriguing system which you might recognise if you follow the Dream PC awards. If you don't then you'll be amazed at the concept, and if you do you'll still be amazed at the hardware.

A completely fanless, mineral cooled, fully submerged system. Not only is this definite proof that the concept we first saw about three years ago works so well that it can take vastly superior hardware than the prototype did, but there is still something truly eye-popping about seeing the coolant run out like a waterfall.

The hardware inside is probably more impressive. Hex-Core Sandy Bridge-E processor running on the Intel X79 chipset. Twin GTX580s. No fans. It speaks volumes when a brand new Intel processor and a brand new chipset almost play second fiddle to the Armari XCP. Although that's probably because we'll get to review the former, never the latter.

Whilst we are taking a small meander down 'Famous custom computers we've known and desired' road. One stealthy, one extrovert, both gorgeous.

I need to go rob a bank so I can buy one of those Swordfish PCs.

I must admit though out of all the retailers Scan do some of the best looking custom built PCs, their Scorpion FT02 custom PC looks awesome too.Quote

I would love that race cockpit. There is no way I could afford it though. From what I heard the D-Box motion simulator alone is 10,000.Quote

after that event i wont be going back to any more tbh. We had a couple of pcs showing our stuff but wasnt impressed over all. The show was tiny and seemed a wasite of time.

We chatted to a few peeps met up with tom and said hello, met up with intel, scan, asus and a few others but to me the show was to small.

From now on ill be moving away from things like this and hideing in my hole and my partner may take over going to these events. I think allso were now looking into producing a Modded PC for show casesing our stuff properly.Quote

Pretty cool event. 8 Jigahertz...I mean Gigahertz.

Would love to see a showcase of your systems mayhem. Quote

Some seriously nice goodies there. So tell me honestly were the floors slippery with the amount of drooling that would have been going on! Quote

There wouldn't be just drool on the floor .Quote

That laptop would cost allot of money and if there is a GTX570M in the UK version, it will just be crazy !!!Quote

29-10-2011, 10:46:28

I so want that Swordfish system, that would fit in perfectly with my other furniture!

Guess I better start saving up some money.

Just thought I should say, on page 3 of the article you got the link to http://triplewidescreen.co.uk/ wrong, there's only one 'p' in triple. Quote
