KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 11 — If you are in the market for a new gaming PC but are tired of seeing the same old boxy PC casing, then Cooler Master may have the answer for you. The renowned PC peripherals brand has recently brought its Sneaker X gaming PC to Malaysia and despite the bespoke design, you can actually get your hands on one provided that you are ok with its hefty price tag.

Yes, it’s a gaming PC inside a giant sneaker

The genesis of the Sneaker X gaming PC goes back to late 2020 to early 2021 when the famed PC modder from Thailand, Juggapat Thonglue or better known as JMDF in the scene, submitted the JMDF Sneaker as one of his entries for the Cooler Master Case Mod Series 2020.

The project was eventually chosen as one of the Best Art Direction winners. As it turned out, Cooler Master loved the project so much that it collaborated with JMDF to produce a version that members of the public could purchase, which became the Sneaker X gaming PC.

After making its world debut at Computex 2023, Sneaker X has finally made its way into Malaysia recently. Only a handful of units are available in our market though via two retailers including Viewnet and Emarque.

Regardless of whether you purchase from Viewnet or Emarque, several components come as default for the Malaysian units of the Sneaker X gaming PC. For one, the case is available only in the Classic Red colourway.

In addition to that, it also features a Cooler Master 850W V850 SFX Gold power supply as well as a 120mm MasterFan MF120 Halo fan. To help cool down its 14th Gen Intel Core i7-14700F processor which also comes as standard for the Malaysian variant of the Sneaker X gaming PC, Cooler Master has fitted a MasterLiquid PL360 Flux liquid CPU cooler into the gaming PC.

Completing the standard feature of the Sneaker X gaming PC for the Malaysian market is the ASUS ROG Strix B760-I Gaming WiFi motherboard. A 400mm PCI-E 4.0 x16 riser cable and PWM fan & ARGB controller are also included with each unit.

When it comes to the Sneaker X’s graphics card, RAM, and solid state drive, they depend on which retailer you choose to purchase the gaming PC from.
