    Smoothcreations, a leading manufacturer of Custom PC gaming systems, desktop workstations, and Laptops, introduced today, in collaboration with Tweaktown, are proud to announce the Smoothcreations “Reaper i7” value series.
    Stop showing up to Lan parties with gaming rigs that look like they were all bought at the same store. Turn heads, and then shred them with the Reaper i7 value series. The first kick ass mid size chassis from Silverstone with performance PC from Smooth Creations.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The Ultimate LAN party system: The Smooth Creations Reaper i7 value series was designed to intimidate, perform and back up every piece of trash talk you fling at your gaming buddies. Plus, the best part of Reaper system was it’s custom specs. Our builders worked closely with Gaming Guru, Cameron Wilmot of Tweaktown, BFG, Corsair Memory, Intel and Silverstone to make this system – an ass kicking system that can deliver smoking benchmarks, immersive HD gaming effects without breaking the bank account. Design to perform, this system will be every game title’s nightmare.

    These custom painted gaming beasts deliver the graphics-shredding processing power you need to conquer your next LAN event. Powered with BFG’s Geforce 280 GTX, these cards take no prisoners to the next LAN. If you don’t own the Reaper i7 system with BFG Geforce 280’s get ready to get your ass kicked playing WoW.

    “The Reaper i7 vs design makes it easy to go to those LAN parties without having to lug heavy pc equipment around”, Mario Gastelum, Product Marketing.

    The “Reaper i7 VS models are stacked with Intel Core i7 940 CPU and a tasty choice of Geforce 280 GTX’s SLI configurations. Be rest assured that not only will you have a screaming looking case – but a serious war gaming machine that will get you the highest frame rates playing Crysis, Left for dead or Far Cry 2.

    “Every Reaper i7 vs system is custom painted and serialized”, Mario Gastelum. We don’t outsource our painted artwork like some of our competitors – by sending their customers pc cases to a car paint shop, Smoothcreations maintains inhouse our own design team.

    The beautiful design and artwork is only rivaled by it’s modular design. For those whom want simply an awesome personalized pc at a price they can afford, The “Reaper i7” makes sense. Rick Lee, Product Manager for Topower.

    Availability
    The Smoothcreations Reaper i7 are available for immediate delivery, and custom artwork designs, configurations, and upgrades are available. Each “Reaper i7 pc is custom painted and serialized with a limited production run of 50 units world wide.

    For customized artwork solutions, please contact: Randy Buck Randy@Smoothcreations.com

    Nice case. But for that cash you would expect a nice bezel for the dvd drive to.

    You beat me to it Alex. hehe

    I never figured out why death/monsters/ugly things in general are associated with gaming... Sorry, those cases are ugly "as hell" (to be on-topic).

    Agreed on that. Understated elegance for the win

    All those graphics look just plain tacky. It completely ruins the classy look of the Silverstone FT01.

    Maybe if it were signed by all members, current and former, of Blue Oyster Cult, then and only then would the price be justified. Not that I'm implying that they meant this to do with Don't Fear the Reaper.

    I can dream...

    Exactly what I was thinking when I saw this.. Too bad many members are not old enough to understand that reference.. They should push this case with Don't fear the reaper included as an mp3..;)

    I vote tacky as well.. It's a nice paint job, good design, but like Viper said, why do all things associated with gaming have to be gothic, evil, or represent death in some way?? To each their own I guess.. For me, I like simple lines and a case that looks like nothing is inside, but when you open it up BAM!! It's how I like my sports rides too.. How ofter do we see tricked out cases (cars) and yet there isn't crap under the hood?

    How do they get away with attaching "Value" to the name. It's high end parts in a high end custom painted chassis and they think some part of it is a good value?


    Ok maybe the DVD bezel....

    Maybe it's just me but I don't think the word's "Value" and "i7" should ever be in the same sentence, well maybe a few years down the road they might be.

    Very true, but what's $30 more on top of $2600 for a black DVD-RW?

    How are you guys bitching about the cost? You would be hard pressed to find these components in another system (from a system builder) for less. I really doubt that you can get these parts from Newegg for less.

    I was about to say the same - black case with custom paint work then you gotta go ruin it by sticking a 'beige/white' dvd rom in there....f**ktards

    Id love to get a custom paint job though....

    Id have [​IMG] this on one side & or a more HQ pic of this [​IMG] or something very similar.

    I know it might not be to everyones tastes but hey im a big fan of mecha so you can kiss my shiny metal ass! Speaking of which I once saw one of these pics on a tuned japanese racer when i was at some motor show


    ::EDIT::

    theres a 2nd image in this post but for some retarded reason its not coming up on my screen so heres a link to it just in case it dont show for any of you guys too >Clicky<

    Did the math, it isnt pretty...build it yourself for $11 cheaper, but I hadnt added the shipping.

    Granted its a lot of money to throw at a PC in general, but the pricing is spot on.

    Your math is wrong... the vista you get with smooth creations is OEM.
