I don't think there really is much for me to say at this point, but I won't let that stop me! We've seen the hard data, and the hard data paints a pretty picture of the MILLENNIUM. It is hands down the most powerful, most over-kill gaming PC we've had the pleasure of having pass through our labs.
ORIGIN PC continues to impress us with its performance systems, where barriers don't seem to exist. Not only have they stuffed triple GTX 980s into a mid-tower, they've watercooled the CPU and done beautiful cable management, too.
The RGB lighting is a nice touch, and the white theme allows you to choose nearly any color choice without having it clash. We did prefer the classy white, but there are a wide range of choices available to the end-user.
When it comes down to it, there really isn't anything wrong with this machine-and there better not be for the price. I have only one real complaint, and that is that the system's case-ORIGIN PC's custom job-feels just a bit flimsy. And this is me being extremely nitpicky. The overall system is a beautiful construction, one that I would kill to have as my own. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't make some changes if I were to run out and buy one on my own dime. After all, most of us don't have budgets that allow for a $6k machine.
One of the quickest, and likely most dramatic, changes in terms of price would be replacing the 5960X with the 5930X. That change will lose you two cores and four threads and save you about $500 off the top. And if you don't have a 4K monitor, you could certainly do away with one-or both-of the GTX 980s.
But those changes don't change my opinion on the machine that I received for review. This thing is absolutely overkill and will destroy games at 4K with high detail settings. So, as we wind this review down, I'm left with just one thought: do I get to keep it? Joking aside, this thing kicks some serious ass, but you will have to pay for it.
For the $5,999, you get free Lifetime 24/7 US-based tech support, Lifetime labor for repairs and upgrades, and a 1-year parts warranty with a 45-day free shipping warranty, in case something happened during shipping.
If you can afford it, you would be hard pressed to build a better gaming desktop than what ORIGIN PC has assembled here today. If you read the review, you saw how much it destroyed the other systems. I am left with absolutely no choice in the matter of awarding this with TweakTown's Best Performance Award. And that award understates just how much above the rest this system sits.
