I will as soon as i get home . . .but then they are sponsored. will use Danger Den nickle-plated blocks. I am spending the say with the owners of Origin PCs. they are already building tri-sli water-cooled rigs for customers (they produce about 95% water-cooled rigs . . .very few air-builds). They use Koolance blocks.

Yes, my friends at Origin have over 30 years of combined experience at Alienware. They took the enthusiast and performance mentality that Dell killed in Alienware and started fresh but with the benefit of not having to go through the learning curves. Colored coolants do not have to break down. They current use Koolance but they are looking at places like XS where other stuff is being developed.

They have some sweet laptops as well, just wish they had an accidental damage option for warranty as $4k on a laptop with out one is a bit of a risk

what makes ORGIN different than other companies

ive seen many companies that do the same thing and sometimes even better with like three 360 rads

and how well is ORGIN doing in this crisis
ive seen a couple of companies close down because of it

I'm actually more curious to see builds with at least gtx480 sli and running surround 3D.

I went to CompUSSR roday to see the acer 3d screens first hand. The screen is not bad, it just really needs a thinner bezel and needs to drop about $100. I need 3 so at $370-$399 each depending on source its a bit much for just a 24" lcd t only 1980. For the smae money a ultra high res 30" could be had.

There is one person on EVGA forums that just got three 480's and his blocks for the cards. At least my first FTW will be shipped this week, now if they only did not can my second order

I'm no expert on ORIGIN - I just know that the folks running it are in the business for the right reasons. They are relatively new (to ORIGIN, not to the Boutique PC business), and I imagine how well they are doing is not public info. I doubt they would claim to have the absolute high end water cooled systems.

If you want to bag on Origin then do your research. What makes them special? Well, for one they have me helping ;) They also have insane amount of experience and truely build rigs that a DIYer would build themselves. There is a market for high-end boutique builds as not everyone can or wants to DIY. I think I can say my builds are among the highest caliber (not even the douchbags elsewhere can say I do not build great rigs . . . .) so if I am impressed then you should at least zip your lip until you have a chance to see one or read a review on one. Just saying . . . .

oh, Origin is growing . . . and growing . . .
