MAINGEAR Launches Fractal North Series with Noctua, Configurations Abound!

MAINGEAR understands that components are getting a little warm — even CDPR suggested folks check their cooling configuration before Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion  launches!  To help combat that problem, MAINGEAR has unveiled its new program called “Drops” where the company will unveil various preconfigured limited-edition builds inspired by the world of PC gaming.  If you are getting a similar vibe to what shoe companies are trying to do with their drops, you are on the right track.  Let’s get into the details:

At the core of MAINGEAR Drops exists two killer categories: ‘Series’ drops and ‘Limited Edition’ drops. Series drops are the release of an entire series of pre-configured gaming rigs featuring the industry’s hottest cases, and cutting-edge components, with configurations spanning different price tiers. For enthusiasts who crave a truly unique and elevated experience, Limited Edition drops serve as testaments to individuality. These totally custom builds redefine the gaming experience with mind-blowing themes and components that give gamers a serious performance edge.

“We’re diving back into our roots with MAINGEAR’s Series and Limited Edition drops,” said Wallace Santos, CEO and co-founder of MAINGEAR. “It’s not just about hardware; it’s a pulse check on the PC gaming community’s heart. These drops seamlessly bridge our legacy, unparalleled quality, and the relentless evolution of PC gaming culture.”

As part of this grand unveiling, MAINGEAR is announcing its new North Series drop, built around the wildly popular North desktop PC case by Fractal Design. Drawing inspiration from the lush vibes of walnut wood and brass, MAINGEAR’s North Series captures the epitome of gaming performance with an air of sophistication and is available in a broad range of enthusiast-configured performance tiers. These builds are available with a variety of GPU options ranging from the new GeForce RTX 4060 to the monstrously powerful 4090, 13-generation Intel Core i5-13400F to i9-13900K processors, air or liquid cooling systems, and more. MAINGEAR North Series PCs start at just $1,299.

Hold onto your RGB-lit seats, because MAINGEAR is making this news a whole lot cooler. MAINGEAR has teamed up with internationally renowned cooling experts at Noctua to release the Noctua North Limited Edition – one of the most savage builds the company has ever revealed! This powerhouse PC flexes serious muscle, packing the Fractal North case full of a monstrous ASUS GeForce RTX 4080 OC Noctua Edition GPU and 24-core 13th-Gen Intel Core i9-13900K CPU. Keeping things cool is a silent hurricane of airflow being moved by a Noctua NH-D15 elite-class dual tower CPU cooler and a selection of premium Noctua cooling fans. The Noctua North is available now for $4,699.

I’ve used Noctua brand fans with my builds in the past and I’ve always been impressed at just how quiet they really are for as much air as they can push.  This should be a great collaboration for MAINGEAR, as well as a great configuration for fans.  There are a metric ton of games that will push your system, and a prebuilt like this will handle all of it.  If you are in the market for a new PC, and you don’t want the hassle of building it yourself, MAINGEAR looks like it could be a good viable choice.  It’s also nice that they are built in New Jersey by a team of gaming enthusiasts.
