Dream Machine 2010 was an exercise in PC building, overclocking, cooling—and patience

So, the desktop PC will become nothing more than a truck? Well, here’s your Mack truck, Mr. Jobs, filling your rear-view mirror on Interstate 80 as you try to get that tablet-sized, Flash-less-powered toy out of the fast lane. Oops, sorry about running you over.
Our take? If the future of the desktop PC is as a truck, it might as well be one hell of a fast and powerful truck. In building Dream Machine 2010, we embraced the notion of raw, wanton power. The result is a power rig capable of hauling a heavily threaded load uphill in top gear while other single- and dual-processor machines are barely chugging along in the slow lane with their hazard lights on.

The Power Cube: Three turned out to be the magic number for this year's Dream: three GPUs, three radiators, three grills--even the 12 cores (and 24 threads) are divisible by three.

At the onset of our Dream Machine project, we were concerned. 24 threads. Three videocards. 24GB of RAM. 4.4 terabytes of storage. Could we get it all to work together? And could we overclock the CPU and GPU enough to qualify as the fastest PC in the world? It took some wrangling, but we’re happy to reply with an emphatic YES. Even better, all this power has some astounding real-world benefits in multithreaded applications.
The simple paint job and tough-looking grills and fans on this year’s system complete the theme. This is not a system for the faint of heart. Read and enjoy.
