Review of overclocked "dream machines"

It should be possible to OC more than that with sub-zero cooling, but it Won't be stable enough for every day use. However, it will be enough to score some pretty high benchmark numbers with speed beyond 4Ghz.

edit: Just noticed it's -20F, so OCing potential won't be that great.

$15k for those Biohazard and Falcon NW machines? You have to be kidding me...

These should be a little more unbiased and not include $1000 custom paint jobs as part of the machine cost when it doesn't contribute to performance. Hardware specs only; add the 'additional cost' of the paint as a side note.

I can take a Dell 270 and charge you $10,000 for paint...

There's a reason it's called a dream machine. It's not just about functionality. :sol:

Not that much OCing potential, u do realise that -20F is -28C? Thats preety cold if you ask me.

Exactly; but its not an apples-to-apples comparison since not all offer super expensive paint jobs. If you strip down the configurations to hardware-only, then you have some basis for price/performance comparison...to find out which drains your bank account the fastest.

$8500 alienware = at least 200% markup over parts... doesn't seem worth it.
not like i have 8500 to buy a computer w\ anyhow... thats a little more than what i owe on my car !

seriously, i'm sure alienware is a great system if you want to spend that much money on it. but for what? other then bragging rights.
