    I don't know if this thread should go in the general PC section, or the Custom PC section, but here we go.

    I'm curious if anyone is considering or has purchased one of the Borg Cube PC's? I'm pretty sure I read about it on WC, otherwise I don't know how I would have found out about it.

    I know the Borg Cube PC is available to purchase now, and the Borg CubeVR PC is supposed to be available soon.

    I must admit that being a HUGE Star Trek fan, I bit the bullet (or photon torpedo!) and ordered one of the Borg Cube PC's. Being the only officially licensed Star Trek computer available, and me being too dumb/lazy to create one like this myself, I just HAD to get one!

    The one I ordered is the smaller 6x6x6 cube, so that will sit nicely up on my desk. The Borg CubeVR PC, being 12x12x12 would take up too much room, and this year I just built a massive gaming/overclocking PC that I'm still trying to learn how to OC and tweak to its potential, so I don't need another one, even if it WOULD be totally AWESOME to have a HUGE green, glowing Borg Cube lighting up the dark!

    I'm just curious if anyone else is considering getting one or has ordered one.

    I'm a huge Trek fan too. Would love one of those PCs. Now, I'm curious as to how I can put my gaming rig into a homemade cube like that.

    I'm guessing you'd have to go with the Borg CubeVR PC. That one is 12x12x12, so that would give you twice as much room as the regular Borg Cube PC. I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my 6x6x6 Borge Cube PC! They are supposed to start shipping right after Thanksgiving.

    Below are the specs I went with. I don't know why it's showing the motherboard temp is so high. It FREAKED me OUT! I restarted and went into the BIOS and the BIOS indicated the temperature of the motherboard was actually a couple of degrees less than the CPU. Not sure what's going on with Speccy there.

    The Borg Cube VR systems (12x12x12) are now ready for ordering. I'm going to hold off because the one I want (the Locutus model) after customizing it to the MAX would be over $10,000!

    So, any of you folks out there going to take the leap through a trans-warp conduit and get your own Borg Cube?

    That's odd. Are you noticing any performance issues on it? I'm super jealous.
