Introduction

For those who are unaware of Maingear and what sort of services they offer to the public, they are a high-end system builder that also offers their own flavor with add-on technologies that are made, along with their chassis configurations, to dominate in all aspects of gaming. Maingear delivers some expensive, but none the less, seriously powerful builds in currently one of four enclosures, at least until now. Well almost, as I write this there are still three days prior to them being able to ship these units.

 

Essentially, at its core, the shift is a Silverstone RV01 that Maingear outfits with its own skin or outer sheet metal to their own desires and strips a couple of things from the interior that just aren't needed or otherwise clutter up the custom builds that they do inside of it. Being that these are custom order builds, there are seemingly a lot of the options still left in this design that the previous carbon fiber version and more plain aluminum renditions offered before.

 

You can add a window, get a custom interior color, various EPIC 180 cooling solutions, the Epic Audio Module along with other optional all at an additional cost.

 

It was also rumored a bit ago that just the case itself would be offered for the do-it-yourselfer in all of us. Since there are only 100 of this specific enclosure, if you want one, you have to act fast. The chassis we are looking at is of course the Maingear Shift Limited Edition chassis in its most basic form. While this chassis is developed around a pre-existing top selling chassis, Maingear makes enough changes to deliver a unique take on a really good design.

 

The fact that this chassis comes with cooling for the CPU and an audio module that works with both sound cards and onboard motherboard audio is just icing on the cake.
