$400 off Lenovo Erazer X700 liquid-cooled gaming PC

Lenovo’s newest computer model to hit the market oozes the company’s newfound aggression and confidence. It’s the Erazer X700, and it’s rather impressive.
While you’re contemplating how to pronounce that name (e-race-er or e-razor?), let’s talk specs. Unfortunately the rig doesn’t come with Intel’s new Haswell processors, but you won’t miss them considering you get overclocked Sandy Bridge-E Core i7 processors. You can read all the dirty details on the Sandy Bridge-E platform here, but in brief these chips have more cache, memory bandwidth, and clock speed headroom than their standard SB/IVB counterparts.

This is a smart budget move for Lenovo, as they offer most of the performance you’d get from a new Haswell chip at a significantly lower cost. The two models on sale right now come with an Intel Core i7-3820 that normally has a base clock of 3.6GHz, but come running at up to 4.2GHz straight out of the box. If you have really deep pockets, the top end model has an i7-3970X hexa-core chip with unlocked multipliers for more overclocking flexibility.
Lenovo Erazer X700 gaming PCLenovo feels confident in selling you an overclocked PC because they use liquid cooling to keep everything cool and quiet. And there’s plenty of room left over in the chassis for goodies like four drive bays, dual PCIe x16 graphics card slots, and dual PCIe x1 slots. You get a total of three USB 3.0 ports and seven USB 2.0 ports. One of each are on the front of the machine along with audio jacks and a 29-in-1 media card reader.

The Erazer comes with a total of five 5.25-inch external bays; one is occupied by the optical drive, two are open, and two are hot-swappable bays that will accept a 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch drive of your choice. Lenovo made sure expansion was easy and plentiful on this beast.

The base model available (57315583) has the aforementioned Core i7-3820 OC, an Nvidia GTX 660 1.5GB graphics card, 12GB of RAM, and 1 terabyte hard drive for $1349, marked down from $1699. However the real deal this week is the upgraded model (57315579) that adds 16GB of RAM, a 2 terabyte hard drive, and Blu-ray drive for only $1,449 after a massive $550 coupon.

These are somewhat hefty discounts on a brand new model and a really strong value for a premium, factory overclocked system with a very powerful out-of-box configuration. This system is also ready for nearly any upgrade you want to throw at it, so you have plenty of headroom to expand later.
