Hot on the heels of Computex 2009, luxury PC maker Maingear is launching a new system labeling it as "the world's greenest gaming PC". They're calling it the Ion Pulse - but it isn't Nvidia's Ion at all. With green being the flavour of the week - in more ways than one - Maingear chucked a Zotac mini-ITX coupled it with a Core 2 Duo or Quad (s-Series) processor and choice of single HDD or SSD storage. Memory is limited to two DDR2-800 slots, but Zotac says you could slip in a couple of OCZ's DDR2-1066 SLI-profile memory sticks, even though they aren't listed on Maingear's configuration options. The twist is Maingear touts the Ion Pulse as having "upgradeable graphics", since the Zotac motherboard... Read more...

We’ve just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the design, build quality and performance of Maingear's Ephex high performance gaming system configured with 3-Way SLI technology from NVIDIA.  We were introduced to Maingear in the process of NVIDIA's 3-Way SLI launch, when NVIDIA had the company configure us a system to test and evaluate 3-Way SLI technology in general.  Obviously, NVIDIA felt Maingear's Ephex system build was high quality enough to send out to the press on behalf of their new 3-Way SLI technology.  So the question is, beyond 3-Way SLI, does Maingear's Ephex live up to customer expectations of a super high-end gaming system as whole? ...

For many of you, Maingear Computer may not be a household name and that would probably be just fine with the folks out at the shop in Union New Jersey.  Loosely classified as a specialty high performance system builder and retailer, Maingear's mission statement on style, performance and quality claims that they strive to not just provide customers with a computer but rather with a "way of life".  That's certainly fitting because the target demographic for the type of machines Maingear builds, probably sees high performance computing as a way of life as well.  In short, Maingear has a tall order to fill catering to the computing enthusiast, but you all knew that we suspect. ...
