Fall Extreme Gamer System Shootout begins with Liquid XS from All American Computers

Test Setup Comments

It is not uncommon to receive units from manufactures that are overclocked, especially when they are going to THG. (Who wouldn’t want the best numbers possible on THG ?). The Falcon Northwest in the first SLI roundup came overclocked and now this review unit from All American Computers confirms that we will continue to receive these types of systems. Can you think of a better way to start off this series than with an overclocked, water-cooled system ? We thought so, too.

The other side of the system

As you will see, the system performed exactly as we thought it would : flawless and smooth. The execution of the tests went as clean as all of the work that went into the layout and production of the system.
