Maingear Rush Review With Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire

When we reviewed the Maingear Epic Rush a few months ago, we found its performance jaw-dropping, and thus we expected the same out of its sibling, the Maingear Rush. However, these are different systems with different configurations on board. For instance, they have different CPUs--the Rush we're testing today has a newer, more powerful GPU configuration, and Maingear approached storage on the two quite differently as well.

What both systems definitely do share is high performance and impeccable build quality. The Maingear Rush is a top-shelf system with killer components; there are no compromises here, and no concern for the final bill either...

Its Almost Over 9000 :P! Great Review Seth And Marco :). I Wonder with this configuration I could use any chassis in the market hmm...Because I fear highly of overheating lol

$8400 and still only 16 GB of RAM? And no BluRay drive? Live a little, you cheapskates! :D

I actually didn't recognize it was the 350D at first. Usually they are not painted and have no drive in the front.

The fan set up is odd, don't you think? It is exhausting out the front and back, while the top is pulling in air. Maingear's flagship PC was designed to have hot hair exhaust out the top, which makes sense as heat rises. This goes against that idea. As long as it works...

Radeon on though? EVGA's Nvidia cards are the best quality :)

I agree to a certain extent. But the Nvidia competitor to this card is the GTX Titan Z at $2999 while this card is $1500. It has also been proved that this card outperforms the Titan Z in a majority of games. Not hating on Nvidia, as I personally own an EVGA Gtx 780 ti, but it would be much smarter to go with the Radeon R9 295x's

This is the kind of machine I want to build. I might switch the Radeon cards with Nvidia though Anyone else notice the cards being weighed down a bit? Just shows how monstrous they really are.

Maingear makes killer gaming rigs for sure.

This is as high-end as it gets as of now. I dream of having the money to afford something like this every night. *Cries*

The power consumption of 730 watts seems too low, other reviews of this card in quadfire hits 1200+ on the wall.

It's a quality system, I'm just an evga Nvidia fanboy :)

Those GPU's looked CRAMMED in there : ) Like Kvantum said, only 16GB of RAM? Seems low for such an expensive build. Probably ran out of room!

This is complete overkill if you are using it for gaming. If someone buys this PC they are probably using it as both a gaming PC and a workstation... Or they are just incredibly rich.
