Meet 8Pack Orion X2, the $43,000 Gaming PC from Overclockers UK


    Overclockers UK recently unveiled overclocker 8PACK’s gaming PC which costs a crazy $43,000. The gaming rig is called 8Pack Orion X2 and is a combination of two powerful systems with extremely complex custom water cooling loop.

    The 8Pack Orion X2 is built in a Phanteks Elite Full Tower PC, with an overclocked 18 core, 36 thread Intel Core i9-7980XE processor with a minimum frequency of 4.6 GHz. Overclockers UK claims Orion X2 to be designed with one of the “most complex and efficient custom watercooling systems ever installed in a PC.”

    The 2 systems are powered using a power splitter from the 8Pack Edition Super Flower Leadex power supply. It delivers a power output of 2000W to both the systems.

    This dual system has a triple custom watercooling loop, it is explained by Overclockers UK as:

    “A total of three independent loops are responsible for cooling, all of which are managed by their own Aquaero 6 from Aqua Computer, thereby enabling them to be conveniently controlled. The CPU as well as the NVMe drive of the E-ATX system are cooled by a 480 mm radiator as well as a 360 mm radiator. Visually, these two loops can be recognised by their grey and silver liquid coolant. The CPU of the Mini-ITX system on the other hand is cooled by a 360 mm radiator, the loop of which can be identified by its red coolant. The uniqueness of this water cooling setup, however, undoubtedly lies in the unusual design as 8Pack – apart from utilising premium components from EK Water Blocks, Aqua Computer and Mayhem – has also designed his own unique components especially for the OrionX2. For this reason the liquid coolants are guided through the whole system thanks to various custom acrylic plates, ultimately presenting themselves in the large reservoir in the shape of the 8Pack logo where all the liquid coolants and pumps finally come together. An absolutely unique show which is unrivalled in every respect including not only design and performance but also for its extremely quiet functioning.”
