"Beautiful inside and out... The MAINGEAR SHIFT is a surprisingly distant leap ahead." — PCGamer
"The Jolly Green Giant of GPU performance..." — Maximum PC
Employing a vertical, heat stack design, heat dissipates out the top of the chassis while drawing cool air from the bottom. This means increased overclocking and performance potential.
The SHIFT combines a sublime blend of a steel skeleton for strength, and beautiful brushed aluminum exterior to reduce weight and increase heat dissipation. So it's strong and functional as well as visually sharp.
With a revolutionary vertical heat dissipation layout, the SHIFT keeps your system cool by allowing hot air to naturally exhaust through the top of the chassis. Now that's smart and cool.
Features Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition with Intel’s Turbo Boost Technology, and Intel Hyper-Threading Technology.
The SHIFT features space to accommodate up to three GPUs, and comes with easy-to-install prewired hot-swap hard drive bays.
MAINGEAR EPIC Audio Engine harmonically enhances audio without adding gain, and it delivers audio that's more articulated, balanced, and better sounding .
MAINGEAR features premium memory solutions from Corsair, much higher quality than you'll find in most popular desktop PCs. You get high-frequency, low-latency memory that delivers performance and reliability.
