Ridiculously Insane Design of Omen X

Omen X
There are few things in life that PC gamers value and one of those are over-the-top cases that look more like works of art than the standard black rectangles most PC makers sell. This is what HP was trying to tap in the market when it recently release the highly seductive design of their PC console.

The company, which launched its Omen sub-brand of gaming PCs back in May, has rolled out its newest desktop gaming PC offering. It’s absolutely ridiculous in the best kind of way.

Daniel Howley of Yahoo! Finance refer to the Omen X as a Ferrari. The case, for instance, looks like something straight out of "Hellraiser." A 60-pound behemoth, the Omen X houses its components in a cube that balances on its single edge thanks to two large supports.

HP says it designed the desktop's case in such a way to help promote airflow — there are three different air champers to keep the system cool — and make it easier for enthusiasts to work on.

Airflow is important for computers because the hotter a system gets, the more it will automatically lower its power output to keep from having a complete meltdown. And in the case of the Omen X, that’s a distinct possibility. That's because the PC can be crammed with as much horsepower as one can afford.

A starter configuration of the Omen X will cost you a whopping US$ 1,800 and includes an Intel Core-i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 2TB hard drive supplemented by a 256GB solid-state drive and an AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card. That's one hell of a system. The thing even comes with a ridiculous number of USB ports: 10!

Want to go even higher? HP will outfit the Omen X with twin Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics chips (which cost about US$ 700 each) and an incredibly unnecessary 32GB of RAM. And if the users want to keep the system running as cool as possible, it comes with a liquid cooling setup that uses radiators to ensure the processor is nice and chilly. Oh, and its front panel is ringed in LEDs that users can program to any color.
