The World's Most Powerful Dual System Computer, Featuring a Triple Stack of NVIDIA's Flagship TITAN RTX Graphics Cards and Three Custom Acrylic Water-cooling Loops.

A pioneer in innovation, system customisation and world-record breaking Overclocks. 8Pack has been creating revolutionary gaming systems for the last decade. Working directly with NVIDIA, Intel and ASUS ROG he's proud to present the Orion X2, a dual system configuration that not only features the most premium selection of enthusiast grade hardware, but offers something that's completely game changing in terms of raw performance.





The Orion X2 has two systems both of which are built inside a single bespoke Phanteks Elite Full Tower. It features both an E-ATX and ITX dual system build with Intel's 18 core i7-7980XE, 8 core i7-9700K and three NVIDIA RTX TITANs. All of which are overclocked and water-cooled by 8Pack for the world's most poweful dual system, the Orion X2.




The Orion X2 Primary Workstation:
  • Intel I9-7890XE 18 core, 36 thread processor watercooled and overclocked to a minimum of 4.6GHz.
  • Two water cooled NVIDIA RTX Titan's with 24GB GDDR6 VRAM connected via NV-Link, with options include a third TITAN RTX.
  • 128GB 8PACK Edition 3200MHz DDR4 RAM
  • 2 TB Samsung 970 EVO M.2 SSD Primary Storage Device
  • 2 TB Samsung 970 EVO M.2 SSD Secondary Storage Device
  • 14 TB Iron Wolf Pro NAS 7200RPM 256MB Cache HDD
  • 2000W 80Plus Platinum 8Pack Edition Super Flower Leadex Power supply
  • Windows 10 Professional pre-installed

The Orion X2 Secondary System:
  • Intel I7-9700K Watercooled and Overclocked by 8Pack to a minimum of 5.1GHz with options to upgrade to I9-9900K at 5.0GHz
  • NVIDIA TITAN RTX 24GB GDDR6 Graphics card watercooled and overclocked, with options to exchange for 2080Ti
  • 16GB 8Pack Edition 4000MHz DDR4 RAM
  • 2 x 2TB Samsung 970 Evo M.2 SSDs configured in RAID 0 as the primary storage device
  • 14 TB Iron Wolf Pro NAS 7200RPM 256MB Cache HDD
  • Windows 10 Professional pre-installed

The Orion X2's Primary System - A True Workhorse That Offers No Compromise
When it comes to extreme performance, there's only one place to start and that's with one of Intel's eighteen core i9-7980XE processors. This processor is hand-picked and overclocked by 8Pack himself to a minimum of 4.6GHz; this ensures only the most premium silicone makes the cut.

The i9-7980XE is mounted on a flagship ASUS ROG Rampage Omega X299, a motherboard that's been tailor made for performance overclocking. Alongside this you'll find 128GB of "8PACK EDITION" TeamGroup 3200MHz DDR4 RAM. This has been designed from the ground up by 8Pack himself to include custom heatsinks and Samsung B die; making it perfect for both performance and stability.



The Orion X2's primary system offers not one, but two state of the art water cooled NVIDIA RTX TITAN 24GB graphic cards. These are connected via NV-Link which enables scaling of memory and performance to meet the demands of even the largest visual computing workloads. Optional configurations allow for a maximum of three water cooled NVIDIA RTX TITAN cards which can be run independently for unmatched computational/rendering operations.

When it comes to storage solutions, the Orion X2 packs 2 x 2TB Samsung 970 Evo M.2 NVMe SSDs, that act as both primary and secondary storage devices. In addition to SSD storage, there's also a 14TB Seagate Iron Wolf Pro, a HDD drive built for a 300TB/Year workload rate and complete with Seagate's 2 year data recovery service.

Orion X2's Secondary System - because we don't believe in 'work or play'
The Orion X2 isn't just an incredible workstation, but also integrates an additional ITX gaming system, this is perfect for multi-tasking or 4K gaming without impacting primary system performance. This dual system configuration can all found in a bespoke Phanteks Elite Full Tower, upgraded from stock to incorporate the many modifications required for the Orion X2 hardware.

Powered by Intel's latest i7-9700K, this 8 core, 8 thread processor is water-cooled and overclocked by 8Pack to a minimum of 5.1GHz. Should you feel the need for even more processing power, there's the option to exchange this for an 8 core, 16 thread i9-9900K overclocked to 5.0GHz.

Mounted to a custom designed acrylic back-plate is an ASUS ROG Strix Z390I gaming motherboard. Slotted into it's PCIe lane is a dedicated, watercooled and overclocked NVIDIA TITAN RTX. Although should you be feeling modest, there is of course the option for swap it for an NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti 11GB. The motherboard is finally completed with 16GB of "8Pack Edition" TeamGroup 4000MHz DRR4 RAM.

When it comes to storage, the secondary system comes with a matching pair of 2TB Samsung 970 Evo M.2 SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration. There's an additional 14 TB Seagate Ironwolf Pro HDD for all your media needs, designed for a 300TB/year workload rate and complete with Seagate's 2 year data recovery plan.

Featuring a Triple Watercooling Loop Complete With Custom Acrylic Pass-Through Plates and Branded Reservoirs for a Show-Piece System Like no Other.
When utilising industry leading hardware, combined with a world-class overclock, you require a cooling configuration far above and beyond the capabilities of any off-the-shelf solution. The Orion X2 has the most complex and efficient custom watercooling system we've ever created including: 4 EK reservoirs, 3 additional acrylic reservoirs, 4 custom acrylic pass-through plates, 3 pumps, 5 metres of hard-piping and over 8 litres of coolant.

These come together to form three water-cooling loops that can be recognised by their grey, silver and red mayhem fluid. The liquid coolants are distributed throughout the dual system setup via a series of custom acrylic pass through plates. These are designed not only to reduce visible hard-tubing, but allow integration of branded acrylic reservoirs located to the right of the motherboard. They increase coolant capacity and provide an impressive visual testament to the engineering feats required to build the Orion X2.

The triple reservoir is designed in the shape of the 8Pack logo, with each of the coolants cascading down to their individual EK rev pumps, located just below. All three water-cooling loops are managed by their own dedicated Aquaero 6. This controls flow rate of each loop as well as highlighting important information such as system temperature via an LCD screen.

Watercooling that's Designed and Detailed for That Premium Finish.
The Orion X2 houses a total of 4 radiators to cool it's dual system set-up, the first of which is a top mounted 480mm radiator, located just behind the signed and numbered 8Pack Edition plaque. This 480mm radiator is dedicated to cooling it's overclocked intel I9-9780XE.

Just behind the front panel of the Orion X2, you'll find an additional 360mm front-mounted radiator dedicated to cooling the primary system's EK RTX TITAN water blocks. This radiator comes complete with custom manufactured 8Pack laser-cut aluminum fan covers.

Comprehensive Cooling for The Secondary System
Underneath the primary compartment of the Phanteks Enthoo Elite, you'll find two additional radiators that support the secondary gaming system. This loop comprises of a 480mm radiator which cools the overclocked I7-9700K and an additional 360mm radiator for the dedicated TITAN RTX graphics card. These feed back up into the custom acrylic pass through plates, around the water-cooling loop and finally back into the 8Pack branded acrylic reservoir.

Hidden in the lower compartment, you will also find the specially designed 2000W 80Plus Platinum 8Pack Edition Super Flower Leadex power supply, which powers both the primary and secondary system.

Hand Braided and Colour Coordinated Cables, for That Final Touch.
The Orion X2 utilises only the finest braided PEXON cables which use an incredible 200 meters of wire and sleeving. It takes the team over 40 hours to precisely handcraft and sleeve each individual cable so it can be routed perfectly without any excess. This is cabling without compromise and helps to complete the small details that go into making the Orion X2 a truly masterful system.

This would be quite well suited for someone who really wanted to work in game development, maybe with RTX or rendering. It seems really geared to prosumer use, also you could render/develop on the 7980XE system and use the 9700K system as the gaming / testing rig. But eeh, personally I would take the system without all the fancy watercooling (yes it looks awesome) but maintenance and handling of that would be a nightmare especially if it develops a leak. :eek: But I think at this point it is Computer hardware Art.

Their staff are trash and they're consistently more expensive than any other retailer in the UK for individual components as well as full PC builds. Christ, even PC World is cheaper than them sometimes and PC World are scum of the earth.

Oh. Well my experience in buying hardware has been neutral/positive. And I did recently return a Bitfenix Portal because it had terrible airflow and the RMA went through okay no questions. ~shrug~ As for prices you are right they are pretty expensive BUT I find the deals they have are the best. Like they have a '56 going for £279 at the moment and it's a Custom AIB one (Sapphire Pulse). But yeah other things are a bit pricey. I usually buy from SCAN for most things but OCUK when they have a good deal on. I never bought a prebuilt so i cant comment~

Does triple RTX cards even work for games? This is pretty much waste of money if it doesn't work.

Money isn't the point with extravagance like this. There's a demarcation where sensible becomes 'luxury'. And luxury products generally exceed their physical value.
However, your point is utterly valid. 3 X Titan cards are likely redundant for gaming. And any scientists buying this for research obviously have some very weird funding sources.
This is for people with massive disposable income, or just massive wealth. As a functional product, I would argue, it's bollocks. Like strapping an extra wing on a plane. Or a scuba tank in a paddling pool.
This is where overkill meets epeen, meets the Twilight Zone.

I like when Linus does shit like this for the lulz in his channel or do it myself because it's fun to do it yourself, not when someone wants to scam me 33k pounds.

There is no way that entire system costs that much, even counting labout cost.

This case has two completely separate systems, an iTX and an EATX, each with their own HDD/SSD storage, but the water cooling loop cools everything. The ITX uses one Titan and the EATX uses two. The systems do not combined in any way as far as workload/gaming. The point being (if there truly is one..) is that you can have a full workstation and a full gaming system all in one case instead of two cases.

One does not simply buy a £33k pc to play games. If you do though i cant tell which is more depressing. you being able to afford a 33k machine or the fact that you'd buy one just for games.

You obviously have more money then sense to the point where you have no idea what to do with it and are completely disconnected from the real world. Buy a lavish £5k machine if you must but give the rest of the money away to a charity or something

It doesn´t worth the money they ask.
At that price, 33k pounds or 37k euros, does not include water chiler, rtx quadro for compute, and also it gets only 3200 mhz ram.
If you can just buy a 5k machine for gaming and donate the rest to charity, you will a better terrain.

And now, I want to ask everyone - since when domestic PC became the hell luxury? Even if it is super-duper-prosumer PC?

The whole idea of PC for these money is ridiculous and makes me laught. Nah, its not about 32k £ - there is alot of things much-much pricier in the world, but - who the hell said PC is luxury thing? Its like making luxury laundry machine, or dishwasher.

Lets just make things clear - PC belongs to IT-specialists and enthusiasts sphere of interest, not big money-making cats. Those prefer real estate, cars and women. They dont even know about videogames - they have plenty of that IRL, neither they’re interested in rendering. Anything, but not the damn vending machine capable of running videogames smoothly.
Those clowns trying to make PC “luxury”... they’re just a jokes. Well, I hope you’ve got the point.

OK, because nobody picked up on this. 2nd system

4TB boot drive. 4TB in RAID0. One badly written piece of data and poof, one really bad Winblows shutdown and goodbye 4TBs.

For past 30 years I've dealt with almost all RAID systems imaginable and when I hear RAID 0 I cringe endlessly. I know NAND is more reliable than rust, but it still is bloody RAID0. I would understand if they went with e.g. 1.5TB Optane (clearly this build has no budget) boot and then as a data drive 2x2, but nooo... 4TB RAID0 bootdrive. Silly doesn't even describe this, even if "only" for games.

As a side note. Fudge 33000 GBP... For now from rendering/modelling engines the only thing that (fully?) supports RTX functions is 3DMax IIRC. Daz Studio is testing beta 4.11 which supports Turing with new version or IRAY. According to reports from guys who are "lab-rats" it smokes, but I have no idea if that's in relation to performance or highly deficient power efficiency of Turing architecture. :D I no longer do "lab-rating" outside using W10. :roll: and skipping 2xxx series entirely.
