-- Play Crysis at Full 1920x1200 Resolution and 30+ FPS with Quad Graphics -- Enhanced Optional Patent-Pending H2C Cooling Solution Keeps Gamers in the Red Zone, CPUs Out -- Choice of Painted Anodized Aluminum H2C Chassis or Silver Brushed Aluminum Air-Cooled Chassis with Optional X-View Clear Panel for Under-the-Hood Ogling

With XPS and Alienware gaming systems we've been progressively delivering an awe-inspiring experience to gamers and now, with the XPS 730, we've set the bar for a truly kick-ass gaming experience.

Dell has raised the performance bar yet again with the launch of the XPS(TM) 730 H2C edition, a premier gaming desktop that is one of the most advanced gaming platforms on the planet.

With support for optional quad-core processors, quad GPU graphics solutions and up to four hard drives, the XPS 730 is more than ready to deliver an immersive experience and ensure gamers pwn their opponents in the most demanding PC games available today.

The air-cooled XPS 730 (starting at $3,999) and XPS 730 H2C (starting at $4,999) bring together some of the top bleeding-edge performance technologies gamers crave, such as:

-- The new NVIDIA(R) nforce(R) 790i Ultra SLI (R) chipset with standard ATX motherboard, one of the industry's most overclockable(1) platforms for Intel processors.

-- Optional factory-overclocked(1) Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Extreme processors and Corsair(TM) DOMINATOR(TM) DDR3 memory.

-- Support for a variety of optional high performance graphics solutions, including the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 in four- way CrossFireX(TM) or NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) 8800GT with SLI technology.

-- Up to four hard drives factory installed, supporting a variety of high performance RAID arrays.

"There is a measure of satisfaction involved in delivering products that meet the expectations of a unique set of customers who are incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, intense and competitive," said Arthur Lewis, head of Dell's gaming group. "With XPS and Alienware gaming systems we've been progressively delivering an awe-inspiring experience to gamers and now, with the XPS 730, we've set the bar for a truly kick-ass gaming experience."

The optional patent-pending H2C cooling solution has also been enhanced. Originally co-developed by Dell, Intel, Delphi and CoolIT, the two-stage ceramic cooling solution has been redesigned to fit an ATX motherboard. Other enhancements include:

-- Re-designed the CPU coldplate to provide more uniform cooling to all four processor cores, reducing the hottest core temperature when running at full load.

-- Added an additional coldplate to cool the chipset. Lower chipset temperature helps improve stability with frontside bus overclocking.(1)

-- Added dynamic speed control to the pump and fans to help eliminate audible noise when the system is at idle.

-- Added a separate fan to provide assured cooling to the CPU's voltage regulator components.

External chassis armor choices include premium materials like 2.4mm anodized aluminum on the XPS 730 H2C in Victory Red and Stealth Blue or brushed aluminum in Silver on the air-cooled XPS 730. Each can be configured with an optional X-View clear side panel that allows sneak peeks at the high performance components, and is easy to remove for upgrades. Additional "under the hood" details include:

-- Standard ATX motherboard, 1 kilowatt 80PLUS power supply, and clean cable management for easy component upgrades

-- Large, quiet pulse width modulation (PWM) fans

-- Support for the new Enthusiast System Architecture (ESA), enabling real-time and complete PC performance management, while delivering new control and monitoring features for thermal, electric and acoustic characteristics.
