Gross!

Nice hardware and great workmanship - just horrible, horrible aesthetics!

:(

I'm still sold on the Kobalt Daedalus looks-wise... :)

Of the 5 of them, I really like this one's mods-man-ship, simple colour scheme. The cable management for the loops and braiding is made almost into an art-form, neatly snaked around the place

Well... this computer won't experience any slowdown during the boring alien sections of crysis... even has a picture of said alien. :P

And still, this is the one that won the competition. Its a very very clean case. Is there a build log anywhere, I'm very interested in the TEC build. I also like the orange/white theming. I do not like the front plate but it fits the jellyfish theming. The inside is stunning, the wire-mesh would have taken ages to do. It really stands out from the rest of the 'black' builds.

If I would owned one, i will probably remove the side plate and replace it with a complete window because the inside is the most impressive of this build.

Nope, not keen on that at all. Pity, looks beautiful inside!

I don't know what you guys think but, I like the 1st dream PC. Now that's engineering and designing. I mean just look at it once again. I think you will come to get the price/performance*engineering ratio. Its great. They got 4.32 from a 920! if its about insanity this is the best overclock. what's the use of spending 1000 quid and getting 4.38. I mean, makes no sense.

i like it and you guys obviously haven't seen the dream pc's in the past the scan's and kobolts machine where the only one's to deliver that wow factor every dream pc should do, it has to mental, almost bonkers, over done

Great machine, certainly a dream PC, if you like the look. I personally think it looks very tacky, the previous Scan entries have been flash but tasty, this one looks like they picked up an old copy of Max Power and modelled the case on one of the tacky mods in there. Nice to see also when Scan use a Corsair ram cooler its great, but when anyone else uses it, its crap.

Great specs, STUNNING internals but a truly ugly case. My folks would beat me black n blue if I ever made something that looked even half as disgusting.

Someone ask Kobalt to fab a custom chassis for this bad boy :D

I like the insides, not keen on the case at all.

If you're referring to the Cryo PC (which also used the Corsair Airflow) then it was noisy because Cryo PC didn't reduce the speed of the incredibly unpleasant fans. In contrast, Scan plugged the Airflow into the motherboard, and used the BIOS to reduce the speed of the fans to stop them shrieking.

The inside pic looks very smart, well engineered. The motherboard next to all the water cooling bits looks cool.

In the Cryo the fan was described as Ghastly, no mention was made of the remedy for this, only in the Scan piece was the 'fix' given. I have the old Corsair ram cooler and that is noisy, my only thought why Cryo didn't alter the speed may be the same reason there isn't much point altering the speed on the old Corsair ram cooler, that being by the time you get rid of all the noise, the thing moves about as much air as a domino falling over.
