Gigabyte has announced a partnership with Maingear to develop Project Stealth, a computer assembly kit intended to make PC building more hassle-free.
Project Stealth combines the technology of Gigabyte and Mingir to solve problems in building PCs with an assembly kit consisting of three products: Z690 Aorus Elite Stealth motherboard, RTX 3070 gaming OC stealth graphics card and Aorus C300G Stealth case.
The kit works by reversing all motherboard connectors such as ATX power, CPU power, fans, USB, audio, front panel, etc., as opposed to the current layout on the front of the motherboard.
According to Gigabyte, the assembly kit is especially helpful for those who have problems with the front panel headers due to the simple cable management, insertion of USB, audio, PSU connectors and the standard location of the motherboard connector.
Meanwhile, Maingear is also offering its own product, Stealth Gaming PC, which includes project stealth motherboard cable management. Each PC is hand-built and comes with DDR5 memory and high-speed PCI-E Gen 4 NVMe storage.
Analysis: The future of PC building
PC building is a very technical and precise process that requires knowledge of PC component placement and how to connect cables for each component to the motherboard.
And as Gigabyte points out, since the motherboard connectors are on the front, it makes the process even more difficult to work with computer cables.
The products offered by Gigabyte and Minger are two ingenious ways to further simplify the PC building process. And if it is successful, it will be an example for other tech companies to provide similar services.
