Custom Gaming System - XClio Case/Intel QX9650/9800 GTX

Some customers have a vision into what the most beautiful should look like.  They select the options on our website and we start to build it.  We then realize just how awesome a computer some of these systems really are.  This system was chosen and configured by an actual customer and we are displaying it here for your viewing pleasure.

This customer either really likes to keep his system cool or he wants to add some wings to his case so it can fly.  Either way, this is one of more interesting cases that has passed through our doors.  The XCLIO case features two huge 250mm fans for extreme airflow.  It also features fan controls right on the case so that you can control the speed and noise levels of the fans at any time.  The customer also opted to install a normal sized 120mm fan at the back of the case for optimal airflow.  Enough about the case, it is the insides that count.


The first thing you will notice is the very large ASUS CPU cooler.  That massive chunk of metal is covering something very fast and exciting which is the Intel QX9650 running at 3.0 GHz.  That chip is easily able to reach some some massive overclocks.  With the addition of very fast DDR3 1600 MHz ram capable of 2000 MHz OC, this system will literally fly when everything is overclocked correctly.  Two hard drives as usual for a system like this, a fast WD Raptor for quick OS and program access and huge 1 TB drive for data, songs, and videos.  A very large PSU finishes the system and I am thinking that the customer may add another 9800 in SLI to take full advantage of the board and PSU.


Here are the complete specs for all of you look over.
