Maingear F131 is liquid-cooled PC gaming like you've never seen

 

No, this isn't a flux capacitor. It's Maingear's F131, an amazingly engineered PC packed with a custom APEX liquid-cooling block.

Maingear F131 Super Stock

 

Acoustic-dampening panels keep things quiet ; Readily accessible internal bays

Plain, boring case

Maingear's F131 Super Stock clambers to the top of our mainstream chart in a hard-fought battle.

Maingear F131

 

The Maingear F131 hits the upper limits of the mainstream PC category, in both performance and cost. But you get quite a lot of bang for your buck, as the F131 delivers much of the muscle and flexibility of beefier machines, at a respectable price of...

User-friendly chassis ; Chart-topping performance

Dual-core processor may be an Achilles' heel

Offering a strong overclock and a readily accessible chassis, Maingear's F131 clambers to the top of the mainstream PC chart.

Maingear F131 Super Stock

 

So the combination of an overclocked quad-core processor and dual high-end/mainstream graphics cards gives you a $2,300 hardcore rig that can play with the $4,000-$6,000 desktops: that's a lot to like. The F131 certainly trounces our previous...

Massively overclocked processor. Very good gaming performance. Plenty of internal expansion room, particularly hard drives

You may need a little fiddling with the internal SATA cage. Only one-year warranty. Small C: drive

The Maingear F131 Super Stock is an overclocked beast for the game grid. It has stratospheric performance, but better yet it doesn't have a stratospheric price tag.

Maingear F131

 

Hoo-hoo! That's an exact recreation of the noise we made when opening the box containing Maingear's F131 desktop rig. But “rig” might be too generic a description for the bright-blue machine; “behemoth” seems more appropriate. For in every...

Still, when you’re running with a frame rate in the hundreds on some of today’s most punishing games, we doubt that fan noise will be much of a concern. You’re certainly getting what you pay for with the F131. With just a wee bit of additional...

Maingear F131 Review: A $10,000 Marvel of Art and Design

 

It's not every day I review a desktop that costs almost $10,000. But when I do, it's gotta be a Maingear. From its ultra-luxe, head-turning Chameleon paint to its supercharged components, including a Core i9 CPU and two GTX 1080Ti GPUs, this machine...

Drool-worthy looks ; Innovative cooling system ; Impressively powerful gaming and overall performance ; Tons of customization options

Extremely expensive

The Maingear F131 offers outrageous amounts of power in a captivating chassis with an innovative cooling system, but that all costs a pretty penny.
