Extreme Dell Offerings

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I don't think this has been posted before but I'm not sure. Dell offering a liquid cooled system isnt anything deserving news but the fact that they offer a QX6800 clocked at 3.73 Ghz caught my eye. Dell seems to be realizing that they are losing a crowd to extreme gamers and system builders. They are now trying to compete with the custom building scene by offering this computer with a 3.73 Ghx quad-core, an available 4 gb's of Corsair Dominator memory, raptor or 1 TB hitachi drives in raid configurations, and even dual 8800 Ultras. Dell seems to be stepping up their game big time.

seems pretty interesting. I'm surprised they are able to offer speeds that high and have consistent stability on those intensely clocked machines.

3.7 isn't bad for a quad.

that's why i'm so impressed. Even with liquid TEC the temps must still be pretty high given the amount of voltage it takes to get a C2D at that kind of clock speed. They must individually test the chips because a bad oc'ing chip won do 3.73.

I think this is because of their purchase of Alienware...

i can almost guarantee that's why they are offering it... but the hardware is still quite impressive
