Maingear unveils minimalist, Core i7 SHIFT tower

updated 10:50 am EST, Mon November 2, 2009

Maingear SHIFT is liquid-cooled, aluminum

Maingear today tackled the very high end, designer category of gaming PCs with the SHIFT. The system is specially designed by Maingear with an aluminum chassis and a rare, vertically-aligned cooling system; besides using an Asetek system to cool the processor without fans, all other components point upwards and have their heat naturally vent upwards instead of front-to-back like in most PCs. The system is also subtler with an all-black design and a pop-up port array on the top with card readers, FireWire, USB and audio.

Every model starts with a Core i7 processor and Windows 7. The base model starts high at $2,199 with a 2.8GHz Core i7, 4GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive and a GeForce GTS 250 for video. Upgrades bring it up to a 3.33GHz Core i7 Extreme, Radeon HD 5870 cards in three-way CrossFire mode, as much as 24GB of RAM and 12TB of storage across six bays.

Orders start today, though shipping varies by the configuration.
