    The 8pack systems sell well, far more sold than I thought, people who had bought their previous most expensive one asked for more... this is what they came up with.

    All I can say is that if you are paying £20k+ for a PC then you're a f---ing idiot.

    If you have 26k to spend on a pc your probably not a idiot though unless you won the lottery. It's like buying expensive cars or clothes. Don't really need them, but if you have the cash why not.

    Overclockers must sell this to somebody or they would not bother.

    While I agree, is not ludicrous overpriced given the standard PC parts used which alone are more than 2/3 of the price. (the 4 Titans and the 6950 alone, cost more than £6000, add the 7700K and the 2 Baracudas you pass the £7000 mark)

    nope. even on the OCUK website rear side pic, cannot find it!!!

    If you can afford to do it why not? I know 2 people with the 'Supernova' and they see it as a good buy.

    Pictures on the store page show the Asus Z170 Mini Itx board rather than the Z270 one (you can tell the difference by the colour scheme of the mobo heatsink, black and red vs black and grey) and its pci-e slot is empty, which is further backed up by the fact that in the picture of the PCs back there are only three graphicscards.

    Much as I am inclined to agree, Overclockers seem to have successfully broken in to the part of the market where wealthy people just have to have the biggest and the best and, have enough money such that price is just not an issue. I suppose we can't really blame them for taking of advantage of rich saps.

    I don't get it. Did they think people wouldn't notice?

    It started appearing at events in 2016 (before the launch of Kaby Lake and Z270), which explains why they have one with a Z170 mini itx system to take pictures of.

    Maybe if someone orders one they'll take some updated pictures for the store during the building process, but just for the sake it?

    They need to stop indulging that guy. 3 watercooled Titan X's for "rendering"? Right, okay.

    Just a publicity stunt, innit? A lame publicity stunt, but it must be effective or they wouldn't bother.

    £11976.99 for the listed components (based on ocuk prices except the Titan Xs where I took the current price from nvidia.com)
    Then add cost of the watercooling
    Then add whatever value you attribute to the custom acrylic bits / custom sleeved cables and such.

    I don't understand, should OCUK not make something like this just out of some bizarre principle of personal value?

    For those who say spending that much on a PC is stupid, what about it it literally doesn't matter to you? There are thousands of people out there who could drop that on a PC without even thinking, and so what? Should they spend every waking moment figuring out how to maximise each and every penny they earn?

    If you took this PC and take somebody who earns say £1.6M per annum, then for them it's like somebody on £25k spending ~£570 on their PC. And that's assuming that individual pays all their tax etc.

    It goes the other way too, if you want to be all riteous about it. Most people here are happy to spend a couple hundred quid on a graphics card or monitor, well what about people who can't remotely afford a luxury like that? I guess you shouldn't buy that thing now because it would be morally reprehensible, could put that money elsewhere to "better" use.

    What's the point of moaning about the cost of a system like that? I just see a lot of self-righteous posters moping about something they can't afford. Go make one yourself if you mind that much.

    I don't have any problem at all with a pc like that being sold, for all I care they could cover the case in diamonds and charge £500000000.

    I wouldn't have any use for it.
    No I don't mind, I just like talking about PCs.
