1: One of our MAVEN Reference Gaming HTPC giveaway systems got it’s ultra-quiet Seasonic 1200 Watt Platinum power supply and cabling installed. It’s now ready for the motherboard.
2. Our HTPC is now powered by ASUS: The X99-PRO motherboard features unmatched performance, fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi and ultra-fast USB 3.1 onboard. It’s also a perfect platform for overclocking.
3. Our giveaway HTPC received some memory: 16 GB Quad-Channel Kingston HyperX Savage 2133MHz DDR4 with aluminum heatsinks.
4. A 240 GB Kingston HyperX Savage SATA SSD is now installed to later host Windows 10, apps and games. Up to 560 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write speeds, with read/write IOPS up to 100k/89k will make sure you spawn first.
5. 2 x XFX AMD Radeon R9 390X with 1050 MHz clock speed and 8 GB 512-Bit GDDR5 memory in AMD CrossFireX configuration ensure that your frame rates will be north of 60, even when playing in 4K.
6. 1.0 TB WD Red Storage added to our giveaway HTPC with rubber cushions to eliminate vibrations. WD Red drives are ultra-quiet, have low power consumption, low heat output, are RAID capable (supporting the TLER command), designed for 24/7 usage and fast enough to play 4K content. Thus, the perfect HTPC storage drive.
7. NZXT Kraken X41 pre-sealed 140 mm liquid cooler installed. This will keep the temps of the overclocked Intel i7-5960X 8-Core CPU in check and is still very quiet under idle and low system loads.
8. Removable easy to clean dust filter is attached to the left side of the MAVEN HTPC chassis, in front of the ultra quiet dual 92 mm intake fans.
9. Our giveaway HTPC is almost complete. Here’s a last glimpse inside before the lid is closed.
10. The final touch. The STEIGER DYNAMICS system engineer signature plaque is embedded on the rear of the finished system.
Bonus: A shoutout to our fan Eusebio Raga from the Philippines who put together this incredible 3D render of our giveaway HTPC! We appreciate the effort he put into this and are glad to feature it in our build log.
