The MALIBAL Nine X7200’s Core i7-980X six-core, 12-thread desktop processor requires a great amount of cooling, which Clevo accomplishes with its twin-fan twin-radiator heat sink.
Each GeForce GTX 480M graphics module gets a separate cooler, differentiated from lesser designs by its added thickness.
Under those sinks are two enormous GF100 graphics processors and an equally-imposing desktop CPU socket. Three hard drives are supported above the system board, two in a double-drive cage and one in a basket under the battery.
MALIBAL loaded this X7200 with two Intel X25-M drives, using the ICH10R RAID controller in striping mode to achieve the highest level of performance with no loss in drive capacity.
The power brick is actually a little larger than its namesake, the massive size responsible for outputting 300 W without the benefit of a cooling fan.
A super-thick, yet otherwise compact, battery boasts an enormous 7844 mWh capacity.
