Origin Genesis (i7-3930k)

 

The Origin Genesis (Core i7-3930K) is a powerful high-end gaming desktop, but it ultimately comes short in the battle with its nearest rivals.

Provides excellent gaming, productivity performance. Good selection of ports, including USB 3.0 and phone charger. Includes hefty power supply, two SSDs for primary storage

Not the fastest at all tests. Fans can be noisy during 3D gaming. Three video cards block expansion slots

Origin Genesis Z68: Crushes Benchmarks, Not Budgets

 

If you're looking for power and performance, you probably won't be surprised to find it in Origin's latest monster desktop. Origin's Genesis Z68 is powerful as well as different-looking in its pretty white chassis (though, thankfully, less...

Attractive chassis ; A plethora of available ports

Gets dirty very easily ; Packed to the gills, with little room to maneuver

If you're looking for power and performance, it probably won't surprise you to know that you'll find it in Origin's latest monster desktop.

Origin Genesis

 

A relative newcomer to the custom PC market, Miami-based Origin PC has a pedigree that belies its newbie status. Founded and staffed by several ex-Alienware execs and techs who jumped ship after Dell's acquisition, Origin delivers an expertly built and...

Stable 5GHz overclock ; Myriad of configuration options ; Grown-up good looks ; Quiet performance ; Reasonably priced considering what’s inside

None

Origin’s Genesis desktop gaming PC, an overclocked triple-SLI liquid-cooled beast of a machine, not only delivers the frame rates, but also gets all the details right.

Origin Genesis Midtower 2011

 

The performance desktop world has been shaken rather soundly with the arrival of Intel's second-generation Core processors. And you'd be hard-pressed to find better proof than the $2000 Origin Genesis Midtower, revamped with the Core i7-2600K processor...

Stellar price-to-performance ratio

Lacks a Blu-ray player

Origin has updated the Genesis Midtower desktop for 2011 with Intel's Sandy Bridge CPUs. While far less imposing than its larger sibling, this machine represents one of the best price-to-performance ratios on our charts, with few sacrifices.

Thankfully, the desktop comes with a lifetime labor warranty, so you can send the system back to Origin for upgrades at a later date, though you pay for the parts. The Genesis has only a one-year warranty on those parts. Other system builders have...

Insane benchmark scores. Six-core/12-stream overclocked processor. Beautiful design. Good build quality. Accessible drive bays. Plethora of ports, including USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire

Insanely expensive. Huge. Loud fans when set to full speed. Only one-year warranty on parts. DIY upgrades are problematic. C: drive is a little small

The Origin Genesis is an über-gaming PC from some of the guys that helped build Alienware's reputation in the gaming PC market. It has insane performance and an insane price, but if you're the kind who has to choose between commuting in a Maserati or a...

Origin Genesis Desktop Gaming System Preview

 

There's a new company joining the ranks of boutique system builders with customization options that could turn the head of even the most die-hard DIY-er. The paint is scarcely dry on the Origin logo—the business opened on November 17th—but the...

Now that you've seen the system specs on paper (and they're pretty darn fine), let's peak inside the case.

Origin Genesis

 

Origin is a very unique company that allows you to customize a single gaming computer into something truly amazing. We found that the base model would require a few upgrades to bring it up to par with the other systems we've reviewed. However, if you...

The Origin Genesis comes standard with quality storage, and you can customize almost any component

There are faster gaming systems available

A wide range of customization options allow you to build your perfect computer from the ground up, and Origin's comprehensive lifetime support will help you stay pleased with your Genesis for a long time.

Origin Genesis Z68 gaming PC

 

The Genesis Z68 is a very fast and very well built gaming PC that's hard not to love

Performance ; Build quality ; SSD RAID 0 array

No USB 3.0 at the front

Origin's Genesis Z68 is fast, expandable and, best of all, very well put together. It showcases some of the neatest cable management we've seen in a PC submitted to our Test Centre and it really highlights how much effort Origin puts in to its products...

Origin Genesis 2011

 

The performance desktop category plays host to all manner of pricey, powerful PCs. Despite being a relative newcomer to our rankings, Origin has fit r...

Category-leading general performance

Elaborate liquid-cooling limits internal access

Origin’s Genesis is back, armed with an impressive 5GHz overclock on its Intel Sandy Bridge CPU. It powers its way to the top of our charts, delivering the fastest results we’ve ever seen, at a price that's actually a bit lower than its predecessor.

Origin Genesis gaming PC

 

Origin is a newcomer to the boutique PC vendor field -- sort of. Though the company is relatively young, it's manned by former Alienware bigwigs who t...

Record-breaking performance, gorgeous chassis

Steep price tag

If you're just hoping to impress your gaming buddies, look a bit lower down the performance PC totem pole. This Origin gaming PC is outfitted for people who want it all, and who will spare no expense to get the unmitigated power they need for work and...
