iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC gaming PCs: Core i7-975 and liquid-cooling

iBUYPOWER have announced a new range of gaming PCs, the Paladin XLC series, which use Intel's Core i7 processors, Coolermaster's HAF 932 cases and Asetek's 240mm radiator liquid-cooling.  Despite the high performance – up to a Core i7-975 can be specified – the systems are apparently "virtually noiseless" by virtue of two huge 230mm fans running at just 800rpm.


Three models are on offer, ranging from the Paladin XLC V1 with a Core i7-920 CPU, 6GB of DDR3 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 graphics and 1TB of storage, up to the Paladin XLC V3 with the Core i7-975 Extreme CPU, triple NVIDIA GTX285 graphics, 12GB of DDR3 RAM and both an 80GB SSD and 1TB 7,200rpm HDD.  The full specifications, plus the intermediate model, are in the gallery below. 

All three run Vista Home Premium, have gigabit LAN and liquid cooling.  There's also an option to specify one of six custom cases.  The iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC systems start at $1,399, with the top-spec i7-975 Extreme going for $4,299.


Press Release:

iBUYPOWER Launches Paladin XLC "Extreme Liquid Cooling" Gaming Systems with Oversized Fans and Double-sized 240mm Radiator Liquid Cooling System

Paladin XLC V3 Features Coolermaster HAF 932 Full Tower, Intel Core i7-975 CPU, and three NVIDIA Geforce GTX 285 in Triple-SLI configuration

El Monte, CA – July 01, 2009 – iBUYPOWER one of the largest gaming PC manufacturers in the world, is excited to announce the super-cooled Paladin XLC line of gaming PCs. iBUYPOWER outfitted each system with Asetek's 240mm radiator liquid cooling solution to keep the Paladin XLC running long and cool in a tundra-esque state. The double-sized radiator is paired with 2 massive 230mm fans, which turn at a virtually noiseless 800RPM.

"PC Cooling is a fairly simple concept, the cooler a system runs the better and longer it will perform," said Darren Su, Vice President of iBUYPOWER. "The Paladin XLC systems were designed with advanced cooling systems to increase component lifespan, allow for higher clock speeds, and ensure a better gaming experience for our customers."

The three configurations each feature an Intel Core i7 processor, 6 GB or more of DDR3 memory, and at least a terabyte of storage space. Paladin XLC customers also have the option of supping up their system with an 80 GB solid state drive for lightning fast boot times, a Blu-ray drive, a second 1 TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive, or choosing from one of six iBUYPOWER exclusive custom painted case designs.

The Paladin XLC systems start at $1,399, and are available now at www.iBUYPOWER.com.
