In a remarkable fusion of tech and fashion, Cooler Master has taken the world of computer design to new heights with its latest innovation, the Sneaker X. This Mini-ITX gaming desktop, born out of a collaboration between the original modder, JMDF, and Cooler Master’s own Steve Chiang, represents the pinnacle of computer aesthetics, merging the world of footwear and computing in an audacious and intriguing manner.
Cooler Master’s design philosophy shines through in the official Sneaker X video, revealing the intricate design required to make this unconventional desktop not only visually striking but also highly functional. The interior is densely packed with components, challenging the airflow dynamics, yet Cooler Master has ingeniously incorporated features like an exposed side-vent and an open roof that, regrettably, cannot accommodate an actual human foot. These design elements aid in dissipating heat from the internal components, while a sophisticated integrated AIO water cooling system, connected to a single RGB intake fan on the right side, ensures optimal thermal management. Yes, you read that correctly—there’s just one visible case fan in the entire build, a testament to Cooler Master’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of design.
The Sneaker X is offered in two distinct models, sharing some key technical specifications. Both versions feature a custom Z790 ITX motherboard equipped with 32GB of DDR5 RAM, running at an impressive base clock of 5600MHz, a 2TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe storage drive, an Intel Core i7-13700K CPU, and the proprietary Master Liquid PL360 Flux “Sneaker Edition” cooling system. Powering these exceptional components is the Cooler Master V850 SFX Gold PSU.
While the specs are undeniably impressive, it’s important to note that the base model starts at $3499, making the Sneaker X a premium choice for PC gamers. The base version includes a Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 with 12GB of VRAM. However, for those seeking even greater graphical firepower, the $3799 edition upgrades to the significantly more potent GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. Both configurations are available for purchase on Cooler Master’s website, offering gamers the chance to elevate their sneaker collection to a whole new level of high-tech sophistication.
Cooler Master’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of design and aesthetics in the world of computing is evident in the Sneaker X. It’s a testament to the company’s willingness to explore uncharted territory and embrace innovation, proving once again that Cooler Master is a leading force in the PC hardware industry.
