IBUYPOWER is a fairly well known boutique builder and one of their new systems, the Paladin XLC Phantom Series is up for review at Legit Reviews.  With an expected retail price just under $1,500 it is a fairly heavy duty system and the white NZXT Phantom case makes it a rather attractive one as well.  A liquid cooled Core i7-930 on an ASUS P6T SE with 6GB of DDR3-1600 provides the backbone of the system with a Radeon HD 5830 providing the graphical power.  In an nice change from the usual, when Legit Reviews checked out the pricing of the various components the total price on NewEgg was higher than the MSRP of the Paladin XLC without even factoring in the 25% overclock the IBUYPOWER system ships with.

“The iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom we got to play with is a beast of a system. Coming out of the box, todays system had a 25% overclock in place from the iBP Labs Level 3 Powerdrive Overclock. This gave the iBUYPOWER Palading XLC Phantom power to spare. The base specifications that we looked at on the first page of the article are impressive, once you upgrade the iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom to the features you want, it will make it even better. The performance of the iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom as we tested it today was top notch. Throw in the fact that the iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC Phantom can be purchased from iBUYPOWER for less than it would cost you to purchase all of the parts individually, and its a no brainer! ”
