PC Porn – Behold the 8Pack Supernova

nova

So you’ve got your 13th cheque and that cash is burning a hole in your pocket. Naturally, you want to play some games, but you want them at a resolution that makes those damn dirty console serfs cry with shame. Provided that you happen to have a decent bonus this year and a few extra organs, then this might be the gaming PC for you.

Built by the UK’s massively muscled 8Pack, the Supernova is a beast of a machine that has a configuration designed to handle high level visuals. As Geoff pointed out to me, despite having one less Titan card than the face-melting Large Pixel Collider, the Supernova should still be lightning quick thanks to the SSD hard drives being in raid 0 mode.

Here’s the full list of specs under the hood:

  • Intel Core i7 3930K Max Overclock to at least 4.9Ghz
  • Asus Rampage IV Xtreme X79 chipset motherboard
  • 16GB Team Extreme DDR 2400, overclocked and tuned
  • 3 x Nvidia GTX Titan Overclocked in Tri SLI
  • 2 x 512gb Plextor M5 Pro configured in Raid 0 for 1000MB/s+ transfer speeds
  • 4TB extra storage
  • Custom modified Case Labs Tower Chassis
  • Custom dual loop water cooling on CPU, motherboard and graphics
  • Aqua Computer remote and USB fan controller and system monitoring

I may be as technologically fluent as a thumbless ape, but even I have to admit that those are some damn meaty specs. The price for that rig? A cool £9,499.99. Or in smiling Randelas, that would set you back R160 047. And 27 cents.

Well that’s one way to play Crysis at max settings.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    good grief that is sexy! I wants it!

    • Willem Van Wyk

      Got the weirdest techno hard on right now…

    • iAmWeasel

      Niiice… very nice. How does it run GTAV or Destiny? :-P

  • Kromas

    When this thing hits 88 Teraflops you’re gonna see some serious gaming Marty!

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Huehuehue. What you did there I saw.. or see.. or will see

  • Ottokie

    R160000 O MY GLOB that is exactly what I have to go bankrupt! Hard choice between a roof over your head or a smexy PC

    • Kensei Seraph

      Think of what will happen to that smexy PC when it rains if you give up the roof.

      • Ottokie

        Will have to filter that rain strait into that huge water cooler cylinder :P

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        nothing. It exudes such awesomeness the water would simply evaporate before even touching the case

    • That Tall Twit

      Just have enough of a roof to cover said smexy PC.

    • Airborne

      You forgot the 27 cents… that was the deal breaker.

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    Imagine the electricity bill!

  • RyseandRepeat

    Looks like the inside of a bloody Ferrari.

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Probably runs faster than one too

      • RyseandRepeat

        So if you own one of these are you also making up for a small dick? Trololo! ;)

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          No no no. That’s only relevant to people who purchase Hummers and those big ass ford pickups.

        • Ottokie

          No that’s a Porsche or Porschaaaaaa for the fanboys :P

          • Spathi

            *Porsche :)

          • Ottokie

            HAHAHA you got me edit was made like 2 seconds later :)

          • That Tall Twit

            LOL @ Porchaaaaaaa

          • RyseandRepeat

            HAha! WIN :) Porschaaaaaaaa!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          If that’s the reasoning you need to console yourself ;)

          • RyseandRepeat

            Nah, I use a console to do that :P Tehehe

  • Kromas

    On an unrelated story I will be selling my body on a street corner in Sandton every weekend so I can afford this. Me love you long time!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Just imagine the performance you’ll get playing Minesweeper.

  • Robert Hart

    Too much space left over in that case.

  • Anon A Mouse

    I’m so glad PC’s offer cheaper gaming than consoles, and in 3 month’s time this will be old tech or something needed replacing somewhere (I think). Besides I’d rather take that money and buy another flat to rent out.

  • Azure

    Just ordered mine…

  • That Tall Twit

    Damn. I am short by 27 cents!

  • Devourer of Small Bunnies

    Screw the titans and gimme that 780ti goodness

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      hear hear!

    • geelslang

      I believe memory does not scale up(doube or triple) when you sli. Titan had 6GB, the 780ti has 3GB. Maybe thats why Titans are still being used in these builds?

      • Devourer of Small Bunnies

        Id prefer grunt over bandwidth (Im familiar with the scalability)

  • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

    That’s a sexy machine with a sexy price… but who the actual hell needs 3 Titans?

    • Ottokie

      These guys sure don’t need 3 Titans… :P

    • Weanerdog

      I agree, I’d strip those out sell them and stick in 4 7990s.

      • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

        And have some change… probably

        • Weanerdog

          Not really but if you could hook up 8 7970s you would be laughing all the way to the bank

  • Anon A Mouse

    Why is there a stiffy drive in the case?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Backwards compatibility? ;)

      • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

        Need to be able to play Alan Border or Jonty Rhodes cricket somehow…

        • MosselWasAlone

          O_O Jonty Rhodes Cricket!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Can you imagine how fast it would run without limiting it with dosbox? lol

          • Vampyric Squirrel of the Sith

            Kinda like Police Quest… it’s all ok until you pull off onto the road outside the police station and then disappear off the end of the map….

  • Purple_Dragon

    So when will we see this as a prize in competition on LG? :)

    • TiMsTeR1033

      in 2030..

  • Xexo

    That belongs in Bat Country…. Sjoe…. Solitaire on High Def, Like a boSS!

  • CypherGate

  • DBL_ZA
