Aftershock's Monolith is a gorgeous take on liquid cooling in a mini-ITX PC

Aftershock Mono 9

Aftershock is back with another build focused squarely on liquid cooling. Like the Ultracore and Explorer, the new Monolith doubles down on providing an enthusiast PC that you'll be proud to show off. The key difference is that the Monolith is no hulking full tower system. Instead, it's a diminutive mini-ITX machine that also houses open-loop liquid cooling and powerful components, including the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. 

The name draws inspiration from the chassis' monolithic design – an upright block that is taller than it is wide. It features tempered glass panels on three sides to show off its innards, and if you opt to go the liquid cooling route, Aftershock will outfit it with the new Bitspower Touchaqua XYZ reservoir and a flow meter and pump combo.

The Monolith can be equipped with up to an Intel Core i9-9700K or an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 32GB of DDR4-3600 memory, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti

It'll support a wide range of configurations and starts at just S$1,375. It'll cost you S$650 to add open-loop liquid cooling, and Aftershock is very much hoping you'll opt for this since the Monolith is in some ways more an enthusiast system than an affordable small form factor PC.

And like other Aftershock systems, you'll be able to customise the chassis with your choice of automobile paints or vinyl car wraps for a more personal touch.
