iBuyPower is clearly focusing a bit more on providing a more unique look and feel with their systems in recent years and the Revolt GT3 is no exception. The chassis at the foundation of the system can hold either a classic ITX based system with the GPU connected with an flexible cable on the backside of the motherboard or may be used to house the just announced Intel NUC Extreme platform. Either way, the platform offers maximum flexibility for building small form factor systems.

This is done with a suspended frame inside the chassis which can be pulled out completely for easy assembly. The covers may also be flipped around, giving you additional space. iBuyPower is working on brackets which can hold low profile fans or additional storage if you choose to rotate the top mesh cover for example. The Revolt GT3 is still being fine-tuned and the variant we saw for the NUC Extreme Platform was 3D printed while the additional mounting components for cooling and storage were not final yet either

I don't get the NUC's fans being butted up right against the GPU... couldn't they have flipped the design so it pulled more air? If this thing IS running an i9, its gunna be toasty.

Next thing I don't get is all the cases being glass on all sides. Even more heat issues there. At least the reference Intel case was mesh on the sides.

Form over function is evidence of crappy design, really.

Good designs do both

Tech youtubers have done test on PCI cable extensions for graphics cards, JayZ said there's no lag or loss of performance but others did same tests and see some lag when using extension PCI EX module.
