If you want the biggest, baddest gaming rig possible, this Omen, offered through HP’s store, is about as big and powerful as they get. Hopefully, you’ll have enough room for it. The “45L” in its name should give you an idea of how big it is. The HP OMEN 45L GT22-0450t weighs 49.82-lb and measures 8.03 x 18.5 x 21.85-inches (W x D x H).
Of course, a machine this big will come with enough room for a quality cooling system. A Cyro Chamber design element allows the CPU “cooler” to draw outside air instead of the warmer air inside the case, as most other towers do. This helps keep the overall temperature low and the air quality fresh. Also, the case interior contains a radiator and two fans. You can install a radiator of up to 360-mm in most 45L GT22 models.
This Omen PC is intended for high-end gamers and can pretty much handle everything. Even with a cheaper configuration, you’ll still get an Intel Core i7 (12700k), 12-cores / 20-threads processor with Liquid Cooler technology and 3.6-GHz (base) – 5.0-GHz (turbo) speed. In addition, there is support for up to an Intel Core i9, 16-cores / 24-threads processor.
