Dell XPS 720 H2C

Dell today ended speculation with the launch of the XPS 720 H2C. The water-cooling that forms the cornerstone of the H2C line gives Dell the ability to tune Intel's quad-core, 2.66GHz Core 2 Extreme to a factory-overclocked 3.73GHz in top models. Video performance has also seen an upgrade with two GeForce 8800 Ultra video cards providing their own clock speed boost beyond the still available GTX versions. A new nForce 680i SLI mainboard streamlines data traffic through the whole system and is bolstered by overclocked 1.06GHz DDR2 memory from Corsair.

Cosmetics also see an upgrade, according to Dell: drawing from Alienware, the company's LightFX system pulses the LED case lights in time with music, game events, or even when e-mail arrives. Owners can also set specific colors.

Stock models are available today and begin at a premium $5,999 with a quad-core processor overclocked to 3.46GHz, 2GB of memory, dual GeForce 8800 GTX cards, a Blu-Ray drive, and a 24-inch widescreen LCD. Adding the faster 3.73GHz option costs $100.
