Packard Bell has unveiled a special gaming PC called ipower X2.0 - this system features a case with a case window, flashy red LED lights, three 120mm fans and liquid cooling from Asetek.

You can equip the system with the latest Intel Core 2 Quad or Core 2 Extreme processors and choose between a GeForce 9800 GX2 or the Radeon HD 4870. Storage capacity ranges from 500GB to 3TB and the system also features a 21-in-1 card reader, 7.1 HD audio, hybrid TV tuner and a gaming keyboard and mouse.
A sound mind in a sound body goes the saying. The magnificent chassis of the ipower X2.0 shows off its inner secrets – including its components and build quality – through a translucent siding with red LED trim lights. To satisfy the 30 per cent of PC gamers who say that design is one of the top selection criteria1, the Packard Bell design studio developed a sexy tower case that unites a black colour scheme with metal trim, transparent housing, gloss finish, bevelled angles and harmonious dimensions (510 H x 217 l X 530 L).

The latest PC games require better performance in terms of graphics, processors, memory and storage. This puts PCs to the test. Overheating is the number one enemy of high performance gamers. It can be the source of system failures and slowdowns. With the ipower X2.0, these problems literally dissipate. Thanks to the chassis design, the components can operate at their best at the right temperature. Three highly efficient and silent 120mm fans with intelligent power management generate optimal airflow. The disks are cooled using direct airflow, the graphics cards spaced apart and the cables run along the back of the chassis.

The Asetek liquid cooling system enables the ipower X2.0 to deliver maximum power with maximum safety. Factory sealed, this new liquid-cooling system gives the ipower X2.0 a low noise footprint and more efficient heat dispersion.

PC gamers dream of being able to modify their PC quickly and easily. Thanks to its tool-less entry, the ipower X2.0 can be opened at the turn of a handle and locked using a special key. All the components can be changed easily and there is space for extra hard drives, cards and additional drives. A host of connectors located on the top of the tower make it easy to connect commonly used gaming peripherals. Stable and robust, the ipower X2.0 has two built-in handles for easy transportation to LAN parties.

The new ipower X2.0 is a concentrated dose of adrenalin that integrates the latest technologies. It comes equipped with the latest GPUs, including the GeForce 9800GX2, or the ATI Radeon HD4870. It is powered by the latest Intel® Core™2 Quad or Intel® Core™2 Extreme processors. The ipower X2.0 is available with 500GB to 3TB of storage capacity, a 21-in-1 card reader, ESATA port, Blu-ray Disc drive, 7.1 HD audio system, hybrid TV tuner2 and a gaming keyboard and mouse.
The bundle also includes some games like Crysis, Need for Speed ProStreet or Carbon and much more. The ipower X2.0 will be available in Europe by Christmas for 999EUR to 1799EUR and over.
