When you’ve been reviewing consumer tech products for nearly two decades, a bit of malaise tends to creep in. There’s only so many words to write about Bluetooth speakers, headphones, and toasters. But when Maingear reaches out and asks if you want to take a gander at its new gaming PC, you say abso-freaking-lutely. Which brings us to the Maingear MG-1 Platinum, the third variant in Maingear’s MG-1 product line. The flavor list for the MG-1 goes Silver ($1,149), Gold ($1,299), Platinum ($1,799), Diamond ($2,299), Legendary ($3,299), and Ultimate ($4,299). The MG-1 was developed in partnership with Shroud, a professional Counter-Strike player turned YouTuber. The Ultimate version is a direct copy of his personal rig. The Platinum version I received is a mid-tier option, but the specs are still pretty good: Graphics CardNVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 (12GB GDDR6X)ProcessorIntel Core i5-13600K (14 Cores/20 Threads)CoolingCooler Master 280mm AiO Liquid CoolerMotherboardMSI Pro B660M-A CEC DDR4 WiFi MotherboardMemory16GB T-FORCE RGB DDR4 3600MHz Memory (2x8GB)Storage1TB Solidigm P41 M.2 NVMe SSDPower Supply600W EVGA Power SupplyOperating SystemWindows 11…Maingear MG-1 Platinum–first impressions
