Hypnotic cubism! lol Two Omen X systems shown on their site btw, both list the x99 chipset, with choices from the broadwell-e lineup for cpu. Aside from the cheaper version, there's the x99 superstock, which starts at $5200.

The ostensible difference between them is the water cooling setup.

Mobo for both is the Asus x99-m ws, with it's PCIe 2.0 x2 M.2 slot. Not exactly an ideal choice for anyone that may want to make full use of a 950 pro or other, or future, M.2 ssd. But who knows, maybe it'd be possible to speak with one of the reps and see what other options there are? Anyhow, just figured it may be worth mentioning.

People you need to actually take a look and configure a system for yourself.

You can configure a HP system with liquid cooling for under $2000.

You may be able to, but we are speaking strictly of the system in the article, which you can see on their website has a starting price of 2999.

Maybe. But the Omen X is a Maingear-HP venture, HP lends the name and style of one of their product lines to Maingear, no clue who's idea it was. Despite its sleek look, the Omen X may give a false impression to it's target audience. Those who may not be hardware-savvy and have deep pockets may see it and assume that, for upwards of $6k, surely they'll get a bleeding edge system that gives bleeding edge performance and future-proofing. But they'd be mistaken.

I think it's beautiful. Anything other than the othodox box computer case is great, but it has to be aesthetically pleasing and I think this is.
