    Hey guys, MAINGEAR CEO here.. again :-). Idea for the gold Turbo happened after watching the gold controller video. We're already getting requests to purchase this gold Turbo, and frankly, it's probably not going to become a limited production Turbo. This was more of a prototype or experiment. Gold plating simply exposes every imperfection, and the inner panels just don't look as good as we'd like it to. Perhaps we'll sell it if we ever get the the plating to the point where we're happy.. but who knows! Just thought LTT crew would enjoy so we did it! Also, some quick insight into this configuration. We actually engineered a new APEX block specifically to make room for a thicker 280mm radiator, to ensure the 3090 and 5950x would deliver their full performance. It definitely pushes the boundaries of performance in a small for factor PC.
    For the record, there are only two units in existence.. LTT has one and I have the other :-) Let me know if you have any further questions. Cheers! - Wallace Santos / MAINGEAR CEO

      What about making a matte gold case with polished gold accents? It would look cool and the matte finish would hide the inprefection.

      Out of curiosity, I'm wondering given Gold and it's awesome cooling potential, would this actually be somewhat beneficial for cooling if the case was used as part of the heat sink? I know the McLaren F1 used gold in the engine bay for heat distribution and to protect the carbon fiber hood from getting damaged by the heat of the engine. Also I know that many heat shields for atmosphere reentry also use gold to protect the occupants from the immense heat of reentry. Is there any chance that this could actually help dissipate heat? I know the gold clearly absorbs a lot of heat. The fact that Linus even mentioned how hot the gold felt without even touching it, possibly it was pulling heat away from the rest of the PC? I don't have access to large amounts of gold, or I would test it myself, but I'm pretty sure there could be some benefits. Although definitely making sure your computer is completely cool to the touch before touching or moving the tower would definitely be a downside. If maybe there were a clear acrylic shell on the outside to protect against fingerprints and to protect your hands from the heat, and possibly some kind of clear plastic handles of some kind so you can move it without burning yourself, I really feel like this could be the ultimate level of cooling possibilities. Heck even manufacturers of high end gaming phones also use gold as part of their heat dissipation, so there has to be some benefits of using gold for cooling right? As for the Bluetooth issues, might be best to have an external Bluetooth antenna via PCiE Wi-Fi Expansion card for better performance.
