Enthusiasts are familiar with the Smooth Creations team as the artists behind the airbrushed gaming rigs from the likes of Falcon Northwest, Alienware, and Maingear. Not as many may be aware, however, that Smooth Creations has recently expanded from the realm of painting cases to that of building and selling painted, customizable systems and laptops as well. These are not your grandfather's systems--they are all high-end gaming rigs with the specs and price tags to prove it.

For HotHarware's April sweepstakes, we partnered with Smooth Creations and Diamond Multimedia to create a truly intimidating system; and they delivered. In the pages ahead we'll take a peek at the system's design and see what's revving under its hood.  Click the link below and check it out...

wow i never thought of scratches untill now, way to freak me out :-P would it be "normal" to put the case in a case O_O

ohh and its coming in monday so ill try to post a follow up review with more benchies, counter-strike source (hl2 engine :-p ), crysis (vista and xp), and bioshock. and of course OVERCLOCKS

on a side note, i think the article made a typo on the ram.. i think tis 1066 not 666 because hyperx discontinued 666 and the benchmarks are too high for 666(edit- im retarded it is 666.... evil much? hahah this fits in perfect with my phone which has 666 in it. ) plus the coolit cooler still has the buffalo logo on it Big Smile love it <3

great system and thank you hh!

im kinda sad no one noticed the shout out i did :-( honestly no conest could make me post in a forum i hate. thats why hh rocks; these forums are great! its the people! if ajay and kam left its their loss plus karma is a *** :-p if kam's skull trail fails he will be Sorry Out of Luck (SOL) :-p no help from me. if something happend to him that prevented him from checking in i could understand that but he is active on another forum and just left us, plus he backed out of his promise to give away his old rig which amdcrankitup could Really use!! speaking of which amd, i *think* my friend has an old 9700/9800 lying around i could ask him what he did with that. or in general try to get you something better. i live in nyc and im pretty sure i can find a better rig for you cheap/free.

would of loved if i could of had smooth creations paint my monitor, mouse and keyboard, ohh and ipod (they do ipods too!)

anyway to wrap up this post. i love this forum and while i may diminish my activity around the time i get the rig (i gotta play some games on it after all!) i will still be quite active, perhaps even more so O_O

I have problems with pain management, try to stay medicated!Wink  I have a little cognitive thinking problems which bothers me more because I try to carry on a intelegent conversation with everybody here and sometimes I come off a little on the duffass side and it shows up so I get some people here confused on what Im saying.Hell I get me Confused. That bothers me more than anything being here when it does happen its embarressing and a little defeating! But its OK if yall can deal with it so can I. its all good IM alive, Right! And I got a sence of humor!

Hey amdcrankitup, I think I decided you need the new 5000 cpu more than I do. Shoot me an email with your info and I'll send it to you. If you can repay me for the shipping great if not no biggy. That should help you on your way to a new comp. I'll have some other stuff when I finish my build that you can have pretty darn cheap if you want.

I want to say to Everybody there is some Great people here HH.I enjoy just being here and feel like I,ve have made some friends.

nelsoncp21 your just one example of many and I want to say thanks what a gesture. But here recently in the last few days I have aquired a proccessor.So I want to tell you how much I appreciate your offer that was a very generous thing to do but I cant in good faith accept it, but there is other people on here I,m sure can use it and deserve it. Im sure you can find someone here. But most of all I appreciate you even thinking about me when you made that decision. Hey besides the big day coming up in a couple days and somebody is gng to get lucky! Damn this is fun!! So thanks again nelsoncp and GOOD Luck to Everybody here!

It's been quite some time since I've been to S.C., my sister lives down there and I used to visit quite frequently, I havn't been in about 10 years now though. My memory of the geography of the state must me jumbled up.   

This is my Sig. There are many like it but this one is mine.
