iBUYPOWER introduced the LAN Warrior small form factor (SFF) system for gamers who frequent LAN parties. The LAN Warrior features the NZXT Rogue case and uses the ASUS Rampage II Gene X58 µATX motherboard with with the Intel Core i7 920, 940 or 965 Extreme processor. There's support for up to 24GB triple-channel DDR3 memory, two high-end graphics cards, up to 1000W PSU, four HDDs and up to two 5.25" devices.
Cooling is provided by up to five case fans and optional Asetek liquid cooling. Prices start at $999 but can go into the thousands of dollars as iBUYPOWER offers lots of customization options.
Enthusiasts will appreciate the LAN Warrior's overclocking features and the SupremeFX X-Fi solution, which enhances the gaming experience with realistic sound-effects. iBUYPOWER also includes a carrying strap and harness system for taking the LAN Warrior on the road.
"We designed the LAN Warrior for gamers that need more power than a gaming laptop can provide," said Darren Su, Vice President of iBUYPOWER. "With the space for 2 dual-slot video cards and a liquid cooled Intel Core i7 Processor, the LAN Warrior is just as powerful as systems twice its size."
iBUYPOWER chose the sleek NZXT Rogue case for its 3 120mm ventilation fan ports (expandable to 5 120mm fans) to keep the LAN Warrior running cool during even the most intense battles. The LAN Warrior's ESATA, Audio out, Card Reader, and two USB ports are all conveniently located on the system's front panel. Additionally, the system's removable power supply bracket and motherboard tray make future expansion a breeze. The case also features a lock on the front cable and pad lock loop on the back panel to protect the LAN Warrior's components from theft.
