People are always asking for bigger, faster and better and if you cannot provide that people will move on lighting fast. Origin PC, being on the cutting edge of custom gaming system announced their overclocking of the Intel Core i7 2700k-based systems with speeds going beyond 5GHz.
What does this mean for gamers? Everyone is looking toward the future for the next games and many of those games are developed to handle the most power components available. You have benchmark junkies looking to push that score and frame-rate freaks looking for ungodly numbers, and it takes powerful hardware to accomplish that goal.
“As an Intel launch partner, ORIGIN PC guarantees the latest technology is available to our customers the day of launch,” said Kevin Wasielewski ORIGIN PC CEO and cofounder. “ORIGIN PC offers the most options on the market. We will build your Intel 2700K powered PC in any case and any configuration.”
Let’s be clear, you can build your own rig and overclock it, but first you need to know what to buy and then you’ll need the skill and knowhow to do it and that is not as easy as some makes it out to be. Also consider that if something goes wrong dealing with manufacture’s warranties can be a pain and leave you without a system for quite some time. An alternative is a system builder who has the knowhow and skill and will provide a kick ass warranty to boot.
So if you are looking to purchase this beast you can find the configuration on the Genesis model on Origin PC’s website. The Genesis system starts around $1337, but keep in mind that price will get higher when adding the i7 and other upgrades. Origin PC will overclock the 2700K as high as 5.2GHz and no lower than 4.7Ghz and that’s from the stock processor speed of 3.5GHz, not bad.
