Maingear Displays New F131 Desktop with new ‘Apex’ Integrated Cooling

@ 2018/01/11
LAS VEGAS, NV — Maingear hit the CES 2018 floor armed with its new flagship F131 desktop gaming PC that has been redesigned from the ground up to the “Apex” of custom liquid cooling.

The new Maingear F131 looks similar to the previous version but with a taller and slimmer chassis, new PSU shroud, and a solid front panel (the previous F131 used a ventilated front panel). The F131 can be equipped with Intel Z370 or X299 chipsets, as well as the AMD B350 Micro-ATX motherboards. Maingear uses ASUS Strix Z370G Gaming, EVGA X299 Micro, and MSI B350M Micro-ATX motherboards along with all of their flagship processors for the chipset (Intel Core i7-8700K, i9-7980XE, and AMD Ryzen 7 1800X. Memory and storage options remain mostly intact from the previous model as well as using dual Geforce Titan Xp graphics cards. With the new F131, Maingear will not be offering AMD GPUs. This is due to water block compatibility issues. The Vega based GPUs (and their thicker coolers) have also been problematic for the new chassis, so the company stopped offering it.
