One of the first things we've seen this week at Computex is the new MSI P100 Creator system. I've always been a big fan of good design ID, and in the past we've seen companies attempt to market gaming oriented designs into the professional designer market. This time around however, MSI has hit the nail on the head. Here's a design that looks elegant in any situation, but still packs a punch in pure power.

The design ID for the P100 system looks great. The chassis is only 10 litres but uses a compartmentalized design that separates out the CPU, GPU, and PSU into its own areas to aid for airflow, and in most cases the air comes in at the bottom and exhausts out of the top half of the design or through the vents at the top. The power supply is an off-the-shelf SFX unit that's 80PLUS Gold certified, and is good for 650W.

In its top configuration, MSI said that this unit will run a full Core i9-9900K, using an off-the-shelf motherboard. We asked about power consumption, and they said this unit is designed to take the CPU up to 120W. In order to make the best of those 120 Watts, MSI includes its Creator software which allows users to select which applications are running, and the system will adjust the CPU frequency for single core/multi-core as well as fan speeds and such accordingly.

The system can also support a high end NVIDIA RTX graphics card, and offers USB and Type-C on the front panel.

It's an elegant design and I was taken aback when I first saw it, as it hits the nail on the head for the market it intends to go for. Kudos to MSI.

    The Red VII is more interesting then another nerfed 9900K by thermals or Power. Reply

    Wow, very un-MSI like. Pretty much a waste of a 9900k given the thermal limit, but really nice design. The plastic white is a downside though. Reply

    It does look fantastic. Shame they went with 9900K instead of something like a 2700X, which is around the same performance when both are thermally and power constrained, but significantly cheaper. Reply

    It looks like the original Xbox 360 console from 2005 Reply
