Compact Gaming Powerhouse

At over 20% smaller than the F131 the DRIFT brings full sized gaming power to an incredibly slim and compact Mini-ITX design. Available with the same high performance options of its bigger brothers, including our handcrafted custom water cooling, you can truly call the DRIFT the ultimate no compromise small form factor gaming pc.

Built from the Inside out

Each MAINGEAR DRIFT is hand assembled by a single master craftsman in New Jersey. One man. One machine. Our Origami Wiring and handcrafted liquid cooling shows through the tinted tempered glass side panels, revealing an unparalleled level of craftsmanship. Blending beautiful modern aesthetics with classic engineering the DRIFT has a timeless exterior of brushed aluminum and tempered glass with a rigid interior of server grade steel.

Performance¬

Full Size Performance-4K and VR Ready

Don’t let its size deceive you. The DRIFT offers the same incredible gaming performance of our full-sized desktops. Packing a ridiculous amount of power into an elegant small form factor, the DRIFT supports top-tier, full-sized graphic options from NVIDIA® and AMD®, and the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processors. The MAINGEAR DRIFT offers incredibly fast and reliable storage options with three hard drive bays supporting up to 2x 2TB Samsung® 850 Pro SSDs with 550MB/s Read speeds and a massive 6TB HDD. Additionally, memory options allow for up to 16GB of premium Kingston DDR4 memory



Cool and Quiet

The MAINGEAR DRIFT combines our award winning VRTX cooling technologies and renowned expertise in crafting custom liquid cooling system with an unrestricted open air design allowing cool air intake from both the front and rear while dissipating warm air from the radiators out of the top the system. This natural cooling design creates a cooling cycle of air, promoting improved performance and cooler temperatures. Paired with our maintenance free or custom liquid cooling the DRIFT is the quietest small form factor PC that we have ever offered.

The Ultimate Burnout

Get the most out of your system by going REDLINE! Our factory tested overclocking service allows you to gain even power from the system by safely pushing the limits on either our CPUs or GPUs to their maximum potentials. Our REDLINE is made possible by our excellent liquid cooling and Intelligent Airflow Control. MAINGEAR's Intuitive Airflow Control technology delivers an unprecedented level of PWM (Pulse-width Modulation) control by pairing with the motherboard's BIOS for enhanced efficiency and quieter operation. Each fan’s speed is directly adjusted according to the system temperature, dynamically adapting to the system performance level and heat generation, reducing unnecessary noise in the process.

So Good, You’ll Want To Touch It

MAINGEAR uses auto-quality finish paint, the same that goes onto the likes of Porsche and BMW.



Luxury Auto-Quality Paint Finish in any Custom Color.

All of our paint is applied in-house at MAINGEAR. While others may send their product out to third parties to apply sub-standard paint jobs, at MAINGEAR we take paint so seriously we built our own in-house team utilizing the only finest in automotive paints and premium hardware. To top it off, our staff has over 30 years individual experience in painting the world’s super cars and hot rods – meaning your system shares a thing or two with the finest automobiles in the world aside from just raw horsepower.
