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 during 2019 and honoring 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.
