Maingear Teams Up with Unikrn to Commercialize UKG Crypto-Mining PCs

Maingear, an award-winning PC system integrator of custom gaming desktops, is partnering with popular eSports brand Unikrn to bring UnikoinGold (UKG) crypto-mining capable PCs to life. The new family of PCs currently consists of two models: the Maingear ACM (Advanced Crypto Miner) and the Maingear ACM PRO. Although Maingear hasn't officially disclosed the technical specifications, the product page gives us a glimpse of the upcoming PCs. The systems are housed inside a spectacular cube-shaped chassis with unique MARC II artwork and gorgeous automotive paint finishes. The ACM model can support up to six graphics cards. Additionally, the ACM PRO model provides additional options for expansion and comes in a rack mountable chassis. Although the systems are designed to mine UnikoinGold, they can be employed to mine Ethereum as well. Both models will be available later this year.

Apart from the new partnership with Unikrn, Maingear also announced that they now accept UnikoinGold as a payment option for their products. From this point forward, their products will come with an option to connect to Unikrn Connekt where gamers can earn UnikoinGold for playing ranked matches while also tracking their statistics and progress in their favorite games.

In first, I am surprised, anyway how are they planning to fill them or does the customer have too, if soo damnnn that'll be tricky,but im not interested to be honest since the shell a miner sits in is by definition a waste of money to me.
Its never going to look good on a desk or shelf either and is too noisy for most rooms, bar cellers and garages so then who cares if it's painted nice??

my 8 card miner is near silent.. they dont have to sound like a jet engine.. it takes up room but apart from that could go anywhere there is room to put it..

cramming too many cards in too small a space would make them noisy i would guess.. but my rig isnt noisy..

Yeah, I don't think that's happening. Even 50 Cent is getting in on the game apparently.

It's like that time I heard about some celebrity first playing an MMO. It's gone mainstream. We can't go back now. :P
