Tech Review: Maingear FXSLI Gaming PC


Posted May 12, 2009 - By Eugene Morton

Maingear FXSLI Gaming PC Review »

If you're in the market for a hardcore gaming PC, then you should consider the FXSLI from Maingear with its brushed aluminum case, a liquid-cooled Intel Core i7 processor, dual Nvidia GTX video cards and 6GB of RAM. Whether or not you should actually buy it is another thing entirely. Find out if it's worth the $2,900 in today's Tech Review.

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.

What You Need to Know

  • Maingear's case design is over 1.5' high and 2' deep
  • It is a little larger than most gaming PCs we've seen
  • You can get colored LED lighting for an extra $100
  • We also like the free laser etching option
  • This is some of the best system organization we've seen
  • Cabling is practically invisible
  • Liquid cooling is on the top of the case, not blocking the motherboard
  • It has slide out hard drive bays
  • Overall, it's a very accessible system
  • It has two Nvidia video cards with 2 GB of RAM on each
  • The computer also has the latest Intel i7 chip
  • In our 3D Mark Vantage tests, it did incredible; it got the highest CPU scores we've seen, and it now holds the title of Fastest Gaming PC on AOTS with 27,000 points
  • Games like Fear 2 look spectacular, and you can get this machine with Nvidia's 3D Vision add-on for an extra $600 to make it look even better


  • The system they've configured for us is around $3,000, but they start at $1,600
  • The last computer we gave the title of "fastest computer" was $10,000 and this one is less than half that
