If you’ve ever wanted to have that extra little bit of excess in your high-end desktop, Origin PC has you covered. The Big O was announced today at CES 2020, and it features a high-end gaming rig and either an Xbox One S or a PlayStation 4 Pro in the same chassis.
The Big O’s construction isn’t as simple as a PS4 Pro or Xbox slapped inside a PC case. Instead, Origin PC installs the console mainboard in the second chamber of the Corsair Crystal Series 280X chassis and uses a custom water-cooling loop for heat dissipation. The result is a dual-system that brings you the best of both worlds.
Interestingly, Origin PC’s design is not only flashy, but it may end up improving the longevity of the console contained in The Big O. Watercooling is much more effective at dissipating heat than the fans provided in the Xbox One S or PlayStation 4 Pro, which should take care of the number one cause of console deaths.
The Big O also contains an internal Elgato 4K60 Pro on a special mount, which makes it a snap to record or stream off the integrated console. This means this PC is an excellent package for those who stream or record gameplay regularly.
Of course, this unique pre-built PC is going to run you quite a bit of money.
