VRTX Cooling Technology - Now A Family Trait Introduced with the launch of the SHIFT, this radical re-thinking of cooling a high performance PC has been often imitated but never duplicated with the same finesse and precision. Harnessing the natural behavior of hot air to rise, this vertical heat-stack design exhausts hot air out the top, drawing in fresh, cool air from the bottom. The result is a quieter, cooler, and higher performing design. Coupled with MAINGEAR's EPIC (Enhanced Performance, Innovative Components) line of closed-loop coolers including the world's largest single fan radiator, the EPIC 180, and the EPIC T1000 phase change metal alloy TIM, MAINGEAR desktops equipped with VRTX Cooling Technology deliver a PC experience unlike any other. And now we've extended this technology to other designs in our product portfolio.
The World's First Mini-ITX Gaming System Designed For Overclocking Never before has a Mini-ITX gaming system been built with such performance in mind. The Potenza Super Stock is outfitted with a 10-phase Digital Power Design, surpassing many full-sized ATX motherboard designs and making it a formidable overclocking system. DIGI+ VRM technology from Asus provides precise Vcore PWM and frequency module adjustments with minimal power loss. ASUS DIGI+ VRM digital power design empowers users with superior flexibility and perfect precision to ensure optimized performance, extreme system stability, and greater power efficiency.
In addition, the inclusion of the venerated EPIC 120 gives the cooling necessary in a compact package to deliver real performance. Featuring CoolIT's patented microfin cold plate, the EPIC 120 runs quiet and packs a punch.
Compact 450W Powerhouse PSU – the Potenza is powered by the only gaming SFX PSU on the market, the Silverstone ST45SF, an 80 Plus Bronze power supply capable of powering a GeForce GTX 680, NVIDIA's flagship GPU that is capable of three-screen gaming. Combined with a powerful 3rd Generation Intel Core processor overclocked and watercooled, and you have the most enticing small form factor computer on the market.
