    Nice hardware and great workmanship - just horrible, horrible aesthetics!

    Of the 5 of them, I really like this one's mods-man-ship, simple colour scheme. The cable management for the loops and braiding is made almost into an art-form, neatly snaked around the place

    Well... this computer won't experience any slowdown during the boring alien sections of crysis... even has a picture of said alien. :p

    And still, this is the one that won the competition. Its a very very clean case. Is there a build log anywhere, I'm very interested in the TEC build. I also like the orange/white theming. I do not like the front plate but it fits the jellyfish theming. The inside is stunning, the wire-mesh would have taken ages to do. It really stands out from the rest of the 'black' builds.

    If I would owned one, i will probably remove the side plate and replace it with a complete window because the inside is the most impressive of this build.

    I don't know what you guys think but, I like the 1st dream PC. Now that's engineering and designing. I mean just look at it once again. I think you will come to get the price/performance*engineering ratio. Its great. They got 4.32 from a 920! if its about insanity this is the best overclock. what's the use of spending 1000 quid and getting 4.38. I mean, makes no sense.

    Great machine, certainly a dream PC, if you like the look. I personally think it looks very tacky, the previous Scan entries have been flash but tasty, this one looks like they picked up an old copy of Max Power and modelled the case on one of the tacky mods in there. Nice to see also when Scan use a Corsair ram cooler its great, but when anyone else uses it, its crap.
