PC case design and layout has changed very little in the last two decades. There are manufacturers out there pushing the envelope, trying to break the mold, but most are endless uncreative variations of the bland rectangular box and its tired internal layout we have become all too familiar with. Our vision of a luxury, high-performance system involved shattering this mold. We set out to create a system that would turn heads, raise a few eyebrows and excite the user or anyone who saw it. A system with a body as remarkable as the brains and brawn inside, at a level of quality and ingenuity not yet seen in the PC arena.
Unsatisfied with the current state of PC case design, we have collaborated with the visionary engineering and design team at DARWINmachine to create something that pushes the boundaries of what a computer can be - a work of art. Their background in racecar design, engineering and architecture is apparent in the sleek design.
Pure Luxury is a statement in elegant simplicity. Meant to be viewed from all angles, the rear panel is oriented to the ground, allowing the cables to exit the computer discretely, avoiding the usual clutter behind a conventional PC. The translucent cowling subtly reveals the aluminum structure underneath, hinting at its mechanical anatomy. Like its racecar brethren, Pure Luxury is easily modifiable and quickly adjustable as the components are attached to a true frame, making everything accessible, adjustable and removable with minimal effort. The central aluminum backbone acts as large heatsink. Combined with the exposed design, the Luxury runs very cool and silent, without the need for additional case fans.
Every Pure Luxury system begins with a hand-built chassis, custom made and tailored for each order and set of build specifications.
Available in cool blue or striking red, the brushed and anodized aluminum frame is adjusted and machined individually for each order to accommodate the owners requested components. Computer designed and CNC machined , the durable and rugged chassis will outlast any component and is easily upgradable. The translucent cladding covering the strong skeletal frame is Ecoresin, a beautiful and environmentally conscious material available in Quattro Carbon finish or supermatte/frosted white.
Every part, every detail, right down to the Mil-Spec screws and quick release component systems has been designed for efficiency, functionality, perfection. Take in the striking beauty and marvel at the industrial design and technology. There has never been anything like it before. We dare even call it a computer anymore.
It was equally important that we marry the superbly engineered structure with components worthy of the Luxury name. We have spared no expense in acquiring the best, hand selected pieces of hardware from the industries leading manufacturers. Take pride in knowing that you not only possess a unique looking system, but also an engine so powerful and tightly tuned that you will be hard pressed to find any comparison. It is your own personal super computer.

Access the raw power of three graphics cards at the same time with the 3x SLI option available for the Luxury. NVIDIA is paving the way in the computer graphics industry. The 580GTX features full DirectX 11 support and the revolutionary NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround - allowing you to connect up to three 3D monitors and bring any game to life. PhysX enables a new level of immersion by letting your video card process game physics, giving a more dynamic and realistic experience. NVIDIA CUDA technology unlocks the untapped power of the GPU's processor cores to accelerate the most demanding tasks such as video transcoding/encoding, ray tracing and rendering, by working simultaneously with the CPU.
There is almost no limit to what you can do with up to 24GB of Kingston's T1 Series memory. Combined with the Intel Core i7 990x Extreme Edition processor's integrated triple channel memory controller, your memory achieves blistering speeds, letting you tear through any multi-tasking situation without fear of it ever being too large.
What better way to increase performance and stability than to get rid of moving parts? The Kingston V+ Solid State Drive is a professional grade SSD granting unmatched data transfer and read and write speeds. Retrieve your gigabyte files near instantaneously, load your games in the blink of an eye, or burn a DVD in a matter of seconds rather than minutes.
Every aspect of your computing experience will benefit from the unprecedented speed and power boost provided by Kingston's professional grade memory and drives.
Games. The driving force behind most of the advances in computers today. The most technologically advanced hobby you can possibly have. Software that is written to push the most cutting edge tech to its highest potential. Games that evolve. Games that craft Hollywood blockbuster stories. Games whose massive worlds are occupied and inhabited by millions of people. Games whose stories never end and whose main character is you. No game is out of bounds - ever. Never stand on the nostalgic side of next-generation again. Effortlessly dominate today's most demanding games and tasks, and know you can handle anything the future holds.
*All numbers displayed in frames per second (FPS) - larger numbers are better. Tests conducted on system with default build specifications.

*Time needed for a 5GB DVD transfer from SSD at blank DVD-R disc. Smaller numbers are better.
*Windows 7 Home - 64bit (SP1). Smaller numbers are better.
The Pure Luxury's unique and open design allows for generous airflow and heat dissipation. All components attach directly to the central aluminum plate of the chassis, which performs double duty - not only providing a stable platform and easy accessibility, but also acting as a giant heatsink and allowing each component to vent openly rather than broil in the confines of a box. In our lab tests, we surprised even ourselves at the load temperatures and stability we were receiving. DARWINmachine's case allowed our systems to run cool and silent (never more than 30dB), without the need for alternative cooling methods.
Running at the default clock speed of 3.46 GHz under full load, the CPU (Intel Core i7-990x) temperature reached 29˚C - 58˚C.
Overclocked to 4.8 GHz - 5.2 GHz under full load, the CPU (Intel Core i7-990x) temperature reached 42˚C - 62˚C.
Temperatures on the GPU (GeForce GTX 580) under full load reached 72˚C - 84˚C.
