    Gamers always like to personalize their gadgets. They take a mundane design and add a wild twist to it. This obsession with unique designs struck a chord with Taiwanese motherboard company AS Rock, who roped in Designworks USA, a subsidiary of BMW to come up with a design for a compact gaming PC that would be functional enough to house all gaming components and look cool while doing it. So after a year of hard work, Designworks USA has come up with the M8.

    The M8 has an innovative design that makes sure that the PC manages to have killer looks when placed both horizontally and vertically. To make sure that the onlooker gets a chance to appreciate the beauty of the motherboard, Designworks USA have left one side of the rig semi transparent. The most important part of this PC is its multi functional control button called as A-Command that has an integrated OLED display that displays system status like usage and heat plus the regular date and time. The A-Command knob allows the user to adjust the system volume and also the speed of the fans inside the cabinet. For easy access to the innards of the PC, the side panel has been made magnetic. Integrated handles at every corner make it easy to carry.

    The press release has mentioned that the chassis will comprise of an 802.11ac Wi-Fi module and Bluetooth v4.0 and a Creative SoundCore 3D quad core processor, they have remained mum on the detailed specs for which we have to wait for the COMPUTEX that is to be held in Taiwan this month.
