AVADirect Unveils a Pair of Compact/SFF X79-Based Systems

When you think of “compact” or “small form factor”, it’s all too easy to make the leap to “weak” or “underpowered”, but AVADirect’s two new small systems are anything but. The company announced a compact gaming system and a workstation, and both systems pack a wallop.

The Compact Gaming PC can be configured with an Intel Core i7-3930K or Core i7-3960K Extreme, up to 32GB of DDR3-1333MHz memory, up to two HDDs or SSDs, and up to a pair of graphics cards. The system also boasts a liquid cooling system and a chassis designed for easy portability.



Compact Gaming PC

Like the Compact Gaming PC, the Workstation PC features a six-core Intel Core i7 CPU and liquid cooling, and it also supports up to 32GB of DDR3-2400 memory, up to four SATA drives, server-grade SAS drives, RAID 0/1/10/5, and a microATX chassis.


Workstation PC

As configured on their respective product pages, you can snag a reasonably well-spec’d version of the Compact Gaming PC or Workstation PC for $1,853.33 or $1,886.86, respectively. Of course, you can customize either system to your heart’s delight, so that price will likely go up somewhat, but either system appears to be a pretty sweet deal.

If your not going to build your system yourself AVAdirect is one of a very small number of places I would have it done. I like Cyberpower and a few of the other custom houses as well for varying reason AVA would always be in that mix for me if I had a need for something like this. These however are sweet little systems I really like the liquid cooled in a small form factor, I would just worry if I was actually going to be moving with a liquid cooled system.

Much like I have heard people say in a big box air and liquid (prebuilt) is often pretty close to each other so validating it is kind of hard. In a smaller bodies system though I could definitely see it though as there is just not as much internally movable air for those duties. So in this case it would be a good option I think.

These are both nice looking PC's, but the one on top is in a really nice case,......I like that case.
