EVGA Introduces E1 Gaming Rig

With the launch of the EVGA E1, EVGA is once again taking extreme gaming to the next level by setting a statement with our new gaming rig. The E1 will be extremely limited and available to EVGA Members only.

Back in 1999 when EVGA first was founded, graphics cards were basic. EVGA was the first to introduce Heat Pipe Cooling and iCX Technology along with 4-Way SLI bringing more benefits to gamers. In 2012, EVGA introduced its first Power Supply. Through quality and features EVGA has become a top choice for Power Supplies when gamers are building their systems. E1 continues the tradition of top tier hardware for gamers.
100% 3K Carbon Fiber Frame
With a patent pending independent suspension system comprised of steel cables, the E1 chassis frame is constructed with 100% 3K Plain weave carbon fiber. At 2.76lbs, the E1 sports the lightest frame design compared to other chassis of the same volume.
K|NGP|N Graphics Card
Z690 DARK K|NGP|N Motherboard
1600W Titanium Power Supply With Limited 3K Carbon Fiber Finish
7th Gen Closed Loop Cooler
Analog Gauges
Limited Edition Keychain Included

i really want to rag on this because ya know its drastically overpriced but that chassis does look sweet.

can't wait for thermaltake to see it. :roll:

This looks more F1 than E1 :eek:

55% as of now says on the poll that this is an interesting idea but they would not buy it.

How is this an interesting idea? So many of EVGA's competition does prebuilts, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte to name a few. How is this anything but expected that it is an interesting idea?

Cool test bench. Well its different, I'll give it that.

But if the frame is CF, how does it discharge to ground all the components? Yet aside this minor detail I think CF is stupid, expensive, fragile, and useless once it is even remotely cracked.

Cringe and tacticool mall-ninja stuff vibe. Just as with Razer and Mad Catz stuff.

Alright, those analog gauges are fuckin' sweet!

This is a collector piece, of course, more than I can afford.

same thing when breadboarding to troubleshoot. all connections have ground to PSU and the wall outlet grounds the psu.

How do you prevent this form being a serious Dust magnet?

Yeah, but usually every part of the case is connected to the ground, through the PSU of course, that I thought it wasn't even worth mentioning around here, right to avoid that any part of the case could discharge to any of electronic components. Normally infact the GND of the PSU is connected to its metal casing and back plate, wich in turns gets connected to the metal surface of the MB trail through the metal case internal structure and also the whole case external sufaces too, being all made of metal or conducting material.

Now looking to the pictures the trail for the MB (which I assume is at least metal and properly connected to the PSU) looks like hanging on tensile structures attached to the CF frame through some kind of wires. What doesn't sits well with me is the CF frame which can eventually discharge electrostatic from its surface (carbon fiber is conducting, but the plastic resin permeating it is not a given), as its rubber feet are likely insulators, and the wires of the tensile structure looks quite dark in the pictures like they are some kind of polymer fibers, which are non conductive, that is what I don't like.

Now if the tensile structure wires are metal instead and if they are securely connected to the MB metal trail and also to the CF frame surface there should be no electrostatic discharge danger, as it would all properly go through the PSU GND, but if not then touching the frame and some electronic part might discharge through that electronic part instead.

You don't, 95% of the use case here is watching your build, making pics of it, and dusting it off before making pics of it. Its a real attention seeker, of dust particles especially ;)

That's extreme gaming in a nutshell. Thinking extremely about everything your hardware could do.

Though I gotta say, of all 'naked bike' cases I've seen, this one is definitely taking the idea and runs with it. In a not too bad way either.

AleksandarKThe E1 will be extremely limited
Translation- extremely overpriced !

I'm really happy to see carbon fiber being used for pc stuff (even though it's been on higher-end cars, bicycles etc for a few years now) and hopefully as moar mfgr's start to use it, the prices will come down.

Now if they could keep that basic frame design and add some fine mesh transparent aluminum or CF panels on the sides, top & bottom, I would buy one, like, yesterday :D
