Yeah! tour... I have been waiting for this since the contest was announced :) I need to get me one of those Maingear shirts :)
"Hey, we're in Jersey" MainGear; it's a jersey thing. Forget about it! That citrus fire shift is beyond sexy, I can't believe the cable management they have going on in the systems. It's neat that they have custom radiators and thermal paste for their systems. Great company and great webcast, i was looking forward to this one.
Now you're just mashing it!
Once again thanks to the sponsors I appreciate the chance to win this amazing computer. The video was awesome getting to see the dedication put into each rig. That red case is pretty and I like the idea about having fewer exposed wires.
"I have the power!!"
Very Impressive build quality. Gave me some ideas for my next build.

LOL Chicks dig tech guys in general... :P
About the design of the shift, not only does it look nicer not being all in the back, its easier to get to them in tight spaces as well :)
I wanted to see them build the contest rig :P Great VIDEO!
Sounds like my kind of job! When ya hiring? LoL...I 'm glad to see a company show that much dedication to their customers. Thanks for the tour.
Wow very nice. The attention to detail in there system construction is awesome. The wiring looked immaculate as did every system I saw past the initial startup, those system on the back wall ready for benching were beautiful. Thanks for taking us on the tour guys. It makes winning a system from them as well as buying a system from them look that much better to me. It also makes me want to win the contest/giveaway system even more.
Great episode. Im impressed with Maingear after watching that. That row of shift's all had perfect cable management. Wont be for a while, But I could definitely go for one of these for a future upgrade. The case would be worth it.
And the custom radiator was cool as well.

and Attention to detail.... Holy smokes!! Even the back panel/gehind the mobo was intense!! Awesome video guys! its always cool to learn new things!
great interview Dave and Marco you may have what it takes to be on TV (anchor men) all you need is someone willing to pay you and cool goats. scruffy weather men

My anticipation and expectations about HH visiting MainGear have been delivered in this episode. YEAH ! they were exceeded as well !
just absolutely amazed & in awe over the shop layout with the pros building each one and all the little details as well as secrets mentioned in such a professional manner that is sure to be the buzz for quite some time and referred to often. If anyone asks about how much personal detail goes into a rig from MainGear have look at this video.I am definitely changed forever in what details to improve and work on my next builds if possible.
Since I like to stop by the MainGear config from time to time and dream about what may be possible and get my fix .it was pretty much all over when I saw that carbon fiber overlay ....oooohhhhh yeeeeaaaahhh that's for me .
Thanks for the great MainGear Tour ..HH always delivers and so does MainGear
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
Nice episode guys, Maingear's factory looks so cool!
You know, we should point out there were two sections of the building we didn't feature--the stock room and lab (and the coference rooms, etc.).
We're told the lab was filled with your typical geeky-craziness. Use your imagination. :) But we did poke around the stock room, and let me say it is as clean and neat as a SHIFT. Everything is orderly and lined up perfectly. There really is no detail these guys don't take seriously.

I'm building a system this weekend just to practive my wiring!
To give away when you are finished? Just kidding, lets see some pics when you are finished so we can compare your skills to the maingear techs.
"Scenic New Jersey"... Now there are words I never thought I'd hear consecutively. :) Great episode, as usual.
*Love* the way they let you know the original technician on the build sheets. People never take personal responsibility anymore; They must have a lot of confidence in their work. Their workspace is so clean, it makes my office look like a junkyard.
It's odd to see a CEO who is in touch with the grunt work, and knows all his employees personally. +1 respect to that guy - wish him nothing but success.
How's the carbon-fiber with heat dissipation? Also, next time I wouldn't mind hearing something about what they do, and what's included in, their default software build.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
This was a very nice tour you gave on Maingear facilities. It's amazing how they focus on every little detail. From the inspections to the cabling to even the CD's in the packet.
Whoever wins the computer should definitely respect Maingear for their attention to detail on every part of the computer. Thank you so much Dave and Marco for giving a tour of the Maingear facilities, greatly appreciated.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
that shift... sure looked sexxy! I like how each PC built by maingear is done by a single tech to minimize errors.
Yeah baby! We loved seeing the paezans working there, being a touch Italian ourselves. :)

Precise Cable Management, Automotive Quality Paint Jobs, Hand assembeled Computers, a high attention to detail and Italian Craftsmanship, Maingear really is like the Ferrari of Enthusiast PC Builders aha.
Thanks for the awesome webcast HH, I've been curious about how enthusiast PC boutiques assemble and make their computer for a while and this webcast was really enlightening
This all just has me hoping harder for the Spring Fling Sweepstakes after seeing the fine craftsmanship and quality products made by maingear! :D
Excellent presentation of MainGear's Assembly Facility. It's obvious that they know exactly what they're doing, and that they care enough about their work to do it as well as they can. Not only is the shop really dialed-in, but their build process is tailored towards customer satisfaction. Looks like a whole lot of thinking goes into the design of their PC's too.
I really enjoyed this one guys.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Did you notice even the HVAC vents were painted with an automotive finish. Attention to detail is definitely their forte.
The C.E. OOOO YEAAHHH
This is hilarious!-
do chicks dig you because you have a name like "wallace"? is that how you got so upwardly mobile?? wallace?
I won't quit my day job, pj but glad you liked that! :)
that notebook checklist is all I needed to see. wow.
Should of stopped at "PCs built for a Man but sexy enough for a Women" :)
Not quite what I expected. As mentioned, it does look more like an automotive shop than a computer shop.
