Origin has announced another new gaming machine and this time out the little PC is very compact and can still be fitted with powerful hardware. The machine is a micro-tower PC that measures 4" w x 15" h x 13.75" d. The PC can be placed on a desk in vertical or horizontal orientations.




Like most of the highly customizable PCs that Origin offers, the Chronos micro-tower rig has many options. It can be had with up to an ASUS Mini-ITX Maximus VI Impact mainboard. Despite the small size of the PC, it can be fitted with a big and powerful NVIDIA video card.


Origin offers up to an NVIDIA GeForce Titan GTX Black video card. If you like the idea of overclocking, but don't want to mess with the settings yourself, Origin will also overclock the CPU and GPU for you.


CPU options include a variety of fourth generation Intel Core i7 units. Cooling for the CPU is via a Frostbyte 120 sealed liquid cooling unit. The PC also uses positive air pressure cooling that also helps keep dust out. Pricing for the micro-tower Chronos starts at $1199.
