DARWINmachine’s Hammerhead HMR989 isn’t just another exposed PC with its case blown off. The HMR989 is high-performance PC built for gamers who like to blow stuff up in their games and want their computers to look like something other than a gigantic tin box. Created predominantly from panels of Ecoresin plastic and CNC machined anodized blue aluminum sections, the HMR989 catches your eye on the first look. The system is accented by bright blue LEDs and offers open-air cooling assisted by a dramatic Thermaltake SpinQ CPU cooler.
The salient specs of the Hammerhead HMR989 PC include 2.8Ghz Intel Core i7-860 CPU, 4 GB RAM, nVidia ENGTX460 graphics card, 640GB front-load hot swap hard drive, 40GB SSD, optical CD/DVD drive and Kingston 750W modular power supply.
The total cost of its machine, including components befitting standard Intel Core i7-860 setup, jumps up to $2,899 (plus shipping). But even if the case cost half of that amount, it might be worth checking out, if nothing else, it calls into mind a trimmed-down, sleeker version of Thermaltake’s Level 10 chassis. And did we mention that it’s built by hand by just one person, and individually numbered? [DARWINmachine]
