High end desktop extravaganza

Maingear and Origin PC announced the availability of their high-end gaming desktops this week. As you can expect, these rigs are anything but ordinary as their CPUs boast clock speeds of over 5GHz.

Both rigs run on Intel’s Core i7 2700K CPU, which clocks in at 3.5GHz or 3.9GHz with Turbo Boost. However, the companies did some overclocking and their CPUs now run at beyond 5GHz.

Maingear strapped its SHIFT and F131 rigs with the Core i7 2700K, where the two start at $1,985 and $1,228 respectively. The company says the CPUs can be overclocked to over 5GHz.

Origin made the i7 2700K available across their entire offer, where the CPU itself comes overclocked to 5.2GHz. Both products are backed by warranties.
