If you’re going to splurge on a gaming PC, then it might as well be one that looks as good as it plays. That’s exactly what you’re going to get with the Maingear Rush, a beast of a gaming PC housed inside a transparent case for showing off your hardware like a museum display.
It starts out with an Inwin 909 chassis, with a 5mm-thick tempered glass panel on the left side, allowing the PC to display its guts in the open without leaving it vulnerable to all the dust in your bedroom (yeah, you’re not very clean) and all the smoke from your vape (yeah, you’re one of those). All the buttons and ports that usually appear at the front of a tower were all moved to the lower corner of that same side, too, ensure easy access, since the whole thing is intended to be positioned with the see-through side out front. The rest of the case is made from a single piece of 4mm-thick brushed aluminum with a paint finish similar to cars, giving the whole enclosure a decidedly premium feel.
Like all PCs, the Maingear Rush comes with numerous hardware options, all based around Intel Skylake processors (from a 3.5GHz Intel Core i5 6600K to a 3GHz Intel i7 5960X, all of them unlocked for overclocking) and either Nvidia or AMD graphics (you can install up to four units of NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X or AMD Radeon R9 Fury X). All systems come with the company’s Intuitive Airflow Control technology, which pairs with the motherboard’s BIOS to enable more efficient operation, along with various custom cooling options that top out with the dual-radiator Epic Superstock Liquid Cooling that puts cooling blocks on every component, fitting, and tubing to ensure reliable operation at the highest settings with minimal maintenance.
Available now, pricing for the Maingear Rush starts at a modest $2,000 and tops out north of $15,000 with all the premium hardware thrown in.
