Written by Nedim Hadzic

High end desktop extravaganza

Maingear and Origin PC announced the availability of their high-end gaming desktops this week. As you can expect, these rigs are anything but ordinary as their CPUs boast clock speeds of over 5GHz.

Both rigs run on Intel’s Core i7 2700K CPU, which clocks in at 3.5GHz or 3.9GHz with Turbo Boost. However, the companies did some overclocking and their CPUs now run at beyond 5GHz.

Maingear strapped its SHIFT and F131 rigs with the Core i7 2700K, where the two start at $1,985 and $1,228 respectively. The company says the CPUs can be overclocked to over 5GHz.

Origin made the i7 2700K available across their entire offer, where the CPU itself comes overclocked to 5.2GHz. Both products are backed by warranties.

your ridiculous, who said it was big news, and who cares if it isn't? its just an article telling you what someone is selling, just like an article about a new phone....are you looking for a reason to tell everyone you have a 2500k? lame.

They sell it for $7000!!! No thanks... money is harder to earn these days, and a lot of people are getting hungry. We better spend our money on wiser ways than living extravagant life like Ghaddaffi (RIP).

Why would anyone buy this? Build your own rig! Way more cheaper with better parts and even sexier looking if you know what your doing!
i7 2700k is around $330, a good mobo another $300 for oc
H100 is 120 for liquid cooling for $120 , m4 256 ssd @ sata 6 is $385
PSU 1000 watts+ $200+, case ranges $150 to $250
Gpu gtx 580s around $450+ for vanilla
Ram 12 gigs of corsair ram for less than $100
Bd drive $50 cdrom drive $15 bucks

Total is around $2000 + or - some

For a rig you can be proud of @ 5hz+, a gtx 580, a bd drive, and a high end ssd!

If you really wanted to go crazy a second higher end gpu like the gtx classified in sli, and a extra ssd in raid 0 will cost you
$3000 way cheaper.
