Origin PC Chronos Line Adds Micro-Tower Option

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 6 comments

Origin PC has added a micro-tower option in its Chronos line of gaming PCs.

On Monday, Origin PC announced the addition of a micro-tower chassis to its line of Chronos desktops. The Chronos is one of the most customizable and powerful in its class, the company boasts, designed to be placed anywhere horizontally or vertically. The chassis is perfect for PC gamers looking for an already-built solution that can be easily carried to LAN parties and other locations.

"This is Origin PC's smallest and thinnest Chronos desktop ever designed and yet it is relentlessly powerful!" said Kevin Wasielewski, Origin PC CEO and co-founder. "With so much power and performance inside a sleek and slim package, our new Chronos micro-tower is one of my favorite systems for any living room, bedroom, or office setting."

Starting at $1,199, the Chronos desktop consists of a huge number of options to choose from. The series is based on several Asus motherboards, Origin Frostbyte sealed liquid cooling systems, and Intel processors spanning the Core i5-4430 chip clocked at 3.0 GHz (3.2 GHz TurboBoost) to the overclocked Intel Core i7-4770K clocked at 4.0 GHz (4.7 GHz TurboBoost).

On the graphics options front, this series offers single and double configurations. For single, customers can choose the Nvidia GTX 750 (1 GB) to the Nvidia GTX Titan Black (6 GB). On the dual GPU front, Origin PC offers a choice of two Nvidia GTX 750Ti (2 GB) GPUs up to two GTX Titan Black (6 GB) cards.

For memory, gamers can choose from 8 GB to 32 GB in 1600 MHz, 1866 MHz and 2133 MHz speeds from Origin PC or Corsair. And for storage, customers can cram up to three hard drives or SSDs from vendors such as Western Digital, Intel, Samsung, Corsair and Origin PC. Optical storage ranges from an Asus 24X CD/DVD burner to a 6x Slim Slot Load Blu-ray Writer.  

"Our state of the art small form factor chassis is designed to keep your gaming PC running at peak performance when using resource intensive programs by utilizing advanced air-cooling techniques and our specialized cable management system that keeps your personal computer clean and clear, states the product page. "PC has created a one of a kind liquid cooling system specially designed to work with the Chronos's small form factor cases that will provide additional stability when you push your system to the limit."

PC gamers interested in getting a new gaming PC rather than build one should head here and build one through Origin PC. Have fun!

    So much about this article is wrong...You cant Overclock a 4770K in that case to 4.7 since there is not enough clearance to put a good water cooler with a big enough fan.You also can't fit 2 titans in that case not just because it is a Mini ITX but there would need to be a +600 watts PSU. While the current best SFX PSU is 450 watts.

    This case may not be able to support such hardware, but other PCs in the Chronos series definitely can. Which is actually what it says in the article.
