VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

based on the following sites

PROS

  • The internal components are top notch, which result in good performance.
  • While other PC OEMs are offering less and less custom options, the Origin PC allows you to customize the Millennium's appearance, performance, and cooling.
  • Five hot-swappable hard drive bays are just inside the front door, making it ultra convenient to upgrade storage.

CONS

  • The Millennium is loud and the fan controls don't seem to make much of a difference in reducing noise.
  • For an ATX mid-tower PC, the Millennium is heavy. The steel chassis adds rigidity and passive cooling, but also contributes to its heft.
  • Although the Millennium starts at about $1700, the price can quickly jump to several multiples of that.

While going triple-SLI is of questionable value given that three cards don’t result in triple the performance, it’s clear that the multi-card setup can dominate any single video card.

The PC sports both automatic and manual fan modes for adjusting noise, but most of my gaming sessions were accompanied by a fair amount of whistling no matter which one I used.
