Yep I was just going to post something about this. Very impressive case design I must say. Also I like the fact they are using an ASUS Striker Extreme for their motherboard.:D I will always prefer to build...but I must give props some to HP and Voodoo (Rahul Sood) engineering on this one.:thumbsup:

Check out the video.

I really like to read Rahul's blog:

wow
what a great looking system.

wonder how the factory built liquid cooling would stand the test of time though.....

Too bad I can't buy that case or one of the Voodoo cases seperatly. The Voodoo cases make me :drooling:! Fits right with my tiki :luv:.

I thought Voodoo sold their modded cases alone??

Edit: Guess not!

Do you guys have any idea how much this will cost?

I can't wait for Sony to start doing "gaming" builds. :lol:

20K for starters.

The Cnet review had it at ~$5,600.

I'll build my own for cheaper, thanks.

I can build one for ~2000 that will give better performance.

Q6600 @ over 3 GHz - 300
2 GB ram - 100
SLI 8800GTX overclocked to Ultra speed or beyond - 1,100
EVGA 680i - 200
PSU - 200
Lian Li Case - 100
Raptor - 100

Plus the HP probably comes with the HP BIOS that you can't tinker with for OCing. Pretty much you're paying for the case and the assembly for $2500 or so.

BIOS is open. (it's a Striker board, after all.)

Still a terrible waste of money.

That case is awesome. I would love to have a case like that. I hope that designers see this and start getting better designs...lol.

Go and read the link on HP's site. It specifically says that the BIOS will be unlocked, so memory speed, FSB, timings, etc. are all accessible.

This is HP trying to compete with the likes of Alienware and Voodoo PC. If the price is right, they will be a very strong competitor.

...and the case looks sexy. :captnkill:
