When ORIGIN PC began in 2009 we set out to build powerful PCs including the Big O: a custom gaming PC that included an Xbox 360 showcasing our customization prowess. In honor of our 10th Anniversary and the legacy of the Big O, we created an all-new Big O combining a powerful gaming PC with an Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Nintendo Switch.

Big O was a major undertaking from the ORIGIN PC team. Taking inspiration from previous custom builds, the Big O required extensive chassis modifications. We removed the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro from their cases and put together a custom liquid cooling system to cool the consoles. We also build a custom Nintendo Switch dock into the front of the case supporting the original functionality of the dock.
After creating a couple of concept designs and running multiple tests, we determined that it was actually possible to fit all the consoles, a high-performance PC, and two different custom hard line loops in our GENESIS chassis. Additional hardware was added to the Big O including an Ethernet switch and USB 3.0 extension cables. As a bonus, we upgraded the consoles to feature 2TB SSDs for more storage and faster game load times.
The finished Big O features a PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro cooled by a custom CRYOGENIC hard line liquid cooling system controlled by the PC. A Nintendo Switch dock is accessible via the front of the system just by opening the front panel, and just like a normal dock, you are free to remove the console at any time. At the rear of the system, there are individual USB 3.0 ports per console, a single HDMI port connected to a 4K HDMI switch, and an ethernet port to go online on all the systems.
For PC gameplay, connect to the liquid cooled NVIDIA TITAN RTX GPU and enjoy PC games with a 144Hz monitor. Even control the RGB lighting in Big O via the software installed on the PC.
The all-new Big O was a true undertaking from the ORIGIN PC team from beginning to end. Big O represents our commitment to continue building custom systems for years to come.
