Gigabyte launches gaming barebone
Watercooled Eagles soar to the skies
Gigabyte has launched a new series of water cooled barebones aimed at demanding users and gamers dubbed Eagles (yes, plural).
The barebone is based around Gigabyte's GA-TX38DUXH-GB1 motherboard, which supports DDR2 and DDR3 memory, an Nvidia 8800 GTX graphics card, WD's 1500 ADFD Raptor hard drive and an 800W PSU. The 8800 GTX is a good card, but we think that an SLI setup with two 8800 GT cards would be much more appealing. It's packed into a black tower case with a nice brushed metal look and a huge door: just look at those massive hinges.
Gigabyte is relying on water cooling to keep this rig cool and quiet. Since most gamers will probably try to make the most of their Core 2 Duo or Quad CPUs by pushing clocks as high as possible, water cooling this is a must.
We still have no idea how much this black beast will cost or when it will be available. You can check out the product page, here, but the information is pretty sketchy there, too.
