Cooler Master's Heat Column Concept Cooler offers LED lighting and looks a lot like a flying saucer.
BioStar showed off new X299 motherboards, which will support Intel's new i9 CPU.
This picture showcases three Asus ROG Swift PG27VQ monitors running in Nvidia Surround. It's actually a bit overwhelming to game on.
Asus ROG Rampage VI Extreme motherboard supports Intel's upcoming X299 chipset and offers unique RGB lighting across its printed-circuit board (PCB).
AMD's 16-core/32-thread Threadripper CPU (right) is a very massive processor. The company is positioning it to compete with Intel's upcoming i9 CPU.
This Gigabyte Aorus motherboard will support AMD's upcoming Threadripper CPU. Notice the massive socket.
Corsair's new Concept Slate case is one of the largest chassis we've ever seen.
WD introduced new 3D-NAND SSDs that will scale up to 2TB.
EVGA introduced its new X299 motherboard. This FTW K model offers RGB backlighting.
EVGA also introduced a Micro ATX-sized X299 motherboard.
EVGA introduced a wide variety of GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards that offer aggressive overclocking options.
EVGA introduced a 750-watt small form factor PSU.
Crucial unveiled new 3D NAND-based SSDs that will be geared towards entry-level customers.
Crucial showcased some new RGB RAM.
Cougar introduced its new Conquer chassis, which features an edgy aluminum alloy frame coupled with tempered glass.
ECS showcased its new Z270-Lightsaber motherboard, which offers RGB lighting and will support Intel's seventh generation Kaby Lake CPUs.
Zotac unveiled its external graphics dock. Like the Alienware Amplifier and Razer Core, it allows you to connect desktop graphics cards to compatible laptops equipped with a Thunderbolt 3 port. Its major drawback is that it's limited to 9.5-inch graphics cards, which is shorter than most reference GPUs.
Speaking of short graphics cards, here is Zotac's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini. The company asserts that it's the shortest GTX 1080 Ti GPU on the market.
In Win's Winbot PC insane spherical PC case was inspired by the space ship in the 2013 movie Oblivion.

Thermaltake's Level 20 chassis offers three separate compartments that separate the motherboard, power supply, and water pump.
V-Color offers an RGB M.2 SSD.
Silverstone's FTZ02 prototype uses Intel's PIO motherboard. The mobo is slightly larger than a Mini ITX solution, but allows you to mount the graphics card sideways without necessitating a ribbon cable or L-shaped PCIe bracket. In this small form factor case, that will allow you to squeeze in large triple-slot GPUs, which is rare for a case this small.
SilverStone's RVZ03 is the newest entry in the company's Raven line of Mini ITX cases and introduces RGB lighting.
SilverStone's RVZ04 prototype is quite bold and introduces a Micro-STX form factor. Micro-STX is even smaller than Mini ITX. While it doesn't offer a PCIe slot, SilverStone is hoping that GPU vendors like AMD and Nvidia will sell and support this standard with MXM laptop-class GPUs.
SilverStone unveiled its fanless 450-watt SFX-L PSU, which makes it completely silent.
Gigabyte's X299 Aorus Gaming 9 is the company's new flagship motherboard. It will support Intel's new X299 CPUs and offers high-quality audio capacitors, three M.2 slots with heatsinks, and a ton of RGB lights.
Gigabyte's Aorus GTX 1070 Gaming Box is an external graphics card dock like the Razer Core and the Alienware Amplifier, but it comes with a GTX 1070 GPU.
