First impressions
In time-honoured PC gaming fashion, the Bolt II's black chassis with red highlights has a window showing off its delicious insides. If you like that sort of thing then you're sorted.

Chuck a few LEDs in there too and you'll have a bona fide rave machine. If not then, well, you'll find it rather garish.

The Bolt II might ‘only’ start at US$1200 (RM3945), but don’t let that fool you. It can be specced up to the hilt if you’ve got more cash to spend, and it’s likely to run whisper quiet too, thanks to its liquid cooling system - which is ready to go straight out of the box.

If you’ve ever set up your own liquid cooling loop before then you’ll know what a pain it can be. Less time crying over spilt fluid and frazzled motherboards – more time blasting your enemies to smithereens in glorious 2K resolutions.
