iBuyPower Announces the Revolt 2 eSports Gaming Desktop

The Revolt was released in 2013 and has consistently been one of our best-selling signature systems, embraced by pro and casual gamers alike. The new Revolt focuses on improving power, performance and control by rethinking the gaming desktop design from the ground up. We were inspired to create a PC that highlighted the most important components in a gaming rig, and allowed customers to create a PC that's as unique as they are. We chose to lead the revolt against the standard, the generic, the boring, and instead forge a new path.

As enthusiasts ourselves, we know that gamers take pride in their systems and the time and care that goes into choosing every component. Arguably, one of the most important parts of a gaming PC is the graphics card. But with all of the effort manufacturers put into the striking designs of their cards, it's a shame that all we see is the backplate at best. The Revolt 2 flips this notion on its head by placing the graphics card at the top of the case underneath a see-through window, highlighted by our customizable Smart Lighting technology. With the Revolt 2, you don't have to keep your GPU in the shadows.

The original Revolt focused on delivering the biggest performance punch in the smallest package possible. The Revolt 2 improves on this idea by utilizing a mini-ITX motherboard paired with full ATX components. With space for a 280mm liquid cooler, 2 solid state hard drives, one HDD and a full ATX power supply, we've created a gaming PC that is both highly customizable and relentlessly dedicated to performance. We also worked with some of the largest eSports organizations in the world to ensure a fast, easy, and reliable SSD swapping system that meets the needs of fast-paced professional gaming.

The Revolt 2 exterior is as dedicated to challenging expectations as the interior. With a design that is simultaneously modern, aggressive, and sleek, the Revolt 2 is sure to look just as striking on stage as it will on your desk, allowing you to game like the pros.

Look for this exciting new product after CES, and become a part of the gaming PC revolution.

  • Researched and developed along with an extensive eSports network.
  • Support for 2.5 slot GPUs 300mm long, showcased under a transparent window.

I just wanted to ask same question...
This is good marketing trick to put everything except PSU and power cables.
It looks cleaner

The PSU is behind the mobo

But yet there are no cables going out from PSU... When you add cables it could be mess. Especially if PSU is not modular....

I don't think so. If the PSU is behind the mobo the case will be as wide as the Corsair 240 maybe little less.

It sits over the motherboard, see the last picture in the slide show on their site http://www.ibuypower.com/Product/Revolt2
Probably hoping that it will provide some airflow over the motherboard components. I would hope the fans on the radiator are set up as intake fans. Airflow would be interesting if not.

or not ... it's a mini ITX ... so for a mini ITX case : it's fat and lot of space wasted o_O imho (wider and higher)
i.e.: my AIR 540 is small compared to a normal E-ATX case ... but wider

also i rather find that design plain and ugly... dunno why ... it looks bland and nothing outstanding... the window for the GPU? don't all case with a side window do the same? i rather see the backplate of my Poseidon than the fans under a plexi (the shroud is also nice but i would put the logo upside down :D )

Hence I stated "average case" which is not mini itx format.

for me a average case can mean a "average mini ITX case", since you did not precise "average ATX case" which make all the difference since the case shown here is mini ITX .... otherwise a lot of case are smaller than a average case :D
meeee? nitpicking? eh?

i.e.: my Cougar MX200 is smaller than a average ATX case yet it is not bigger than that mini ITX case from ibuypower (damn that name is ridiculous) can fit the same component or up to standard ATX except the 240mm AIO, oh and it has almost the exact same logo... almost ....
that design is ... well ... to each his own, lucky for them there is some customer for that kind of things

It'd be interesting to see how cable management is catered for.

Looks like rendered image or something, the motherboard is not attached to the case, look at the holes ... there are no screws.
