- Holly Computers S939 AMD64W Water Cooled System

On the hunt for a top of the line powerhouse pc right off the bat? - Trusted Reviews allow us a closer look at the S939 AMD64W from Holly Computers. Decked out with a whole array of high-end enthusiast components including AMD's killer FX-53 processor, an nvidia 6800GT, ABit's AV8 motherboard and a complete watercooling solution wrapped up in Antec's P160 tower, this may be just what you've been looking for (providing money's of little concern).


Even at default settings though, specifications wise, the Holly certainly has it going on. The system is powered by an Athlon FX-53, which until recently was the fastest AMD processor you could buy. That honour is now taken by the slightly upgraded Athlon FX-55, which has clock speed of 2.6GHz compared to the FX-53s 2.4GHz. The good news is that the Holly system is now shipping with a FX-55 for the same price, which can't be bad.
