Its often difficult to find a happy medium between computing power and affordability, but Maingear has managed to pack some serious muscle into their F131 and still offer it at a reasonable price.
After checking it out, our only complaints are that the tower’s design makes accessing various ports a tedious process, and that the fans get a bit too loud at times.
The fan noise is forgivable though, considering the relatively small size of the F131 and the beefy hardware that makes up its guts. The system has seven fans to keep it’s interior nice and cool for the overclocked Core i7-3770K processor, 4GB GPX 690 video processor, and 60GB Corsair SSD hard drive.
