Origin 5000T Millennium gaming PC review

The Origin 5000T Millennium gaming PC makes my current desktop exceptionally weak.

Origin finished PC starts at $2644 and the unit they sent me was the high end configuration for $5158. This is an extreme gaming PC that few people can afford, but even with the internal power, what impresses most is the precision and care you don’t always see in off-the-shelf rigs. In terms of pure performance, the Origin 5000T makes good use of the i9 12900K and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The gaming PC goes head to head in most gaming and synthetic benchmarks with two other rigs we’ve tested with similar specs, including the Corsair One i300 and Velocity Micro Raptor Z55. It’s exactly what you’d expect from one of our favorite gaming processors and a close competitor to our favorite GPUs.

At 1080p, the Origin 5000T Millennium is completely overkill.

The system ran at over 100 frames per game I ran. In F1 2020, it reached an average of 287fps on ultra-high settings. It’s hard to recommend such a reliable and expensive gaming PC to someone much better served by something more modest and significantly cheaper, unless you’re trying to play Fortnite at 360Hz and then by all means live yours. life. But for 4K gaming, and to a lesser extent 1440p gaming, this prebuilt build delivers consistent frame rates across all of our tests. In all of our 4K tests, it averaged over 60fps with a maximum of 90fps. If you want to run games up to 4K and have a smooth experience, this PC should comfortably handle it with frame headroom.

I played Elden Ring for a bit on this PC at max settings.

The game has had freezing issues that I have surprisingly never encountered on this PC – perhaps because its hardware dwarfs even the recommended system requirements for the game. It runs smoothly (albeit at 60fps) and looks fantastic at its fullest settings. Other games, such as Metro Exodus, ran just as well, seemingly without crashing. That’s the power of a computer with some of the most expensive components on the market right now.

Our version of the Origin 5000T Millennium had a few issues besides the stellar hardware.

It has 32GB of Corsair DDR5 memory clocked at 4800MHz, which can’t be compared to other PCs in our tests. That said, 32GB of storage is a good addition if you want to multitask or have a bunch of chrome tabs open while you play. This can also help if you plan on streaming. At the moment, DDR5 is still hard to come by, so it’s nice to see it here. The difference between this PC and the others was fairly minimal, but that’s something to keep in mind when both the Corsair One i300 and the Velocity Micro Raptor Z55 sell for a slightly lower price.

The Origin 5000T Millennium also runs a 1TB Corsair MP600 NVMe SS OS

Along with a 2TB Samsung 870 QVO series SSD for storage. The lack of a second NVMe drive in our rig meant that its performance was below the competition. You can set up your PC to enable a second NVMe drive on the Origin website, but it will cost you considerably more. For the price of our device, it was a little disappointing to see a regular SATA SSD.

These little bumps on the Origin 5000T Millennium won’t hurt him too much.

The PC also features a Corsair iCUE H150i Elite CPU liquid cooling system with an LCD pump cover. Our unit had some issues with the iCUE software, which seems to be a software bug in Corsair, not Origin, but the ease with which it’s all controlled (when it worked for me) and its placement in the Mid- The Tower 5000T is impressive.

If you’re planning on spending that much on a PC

Expect to see a sleek chassis with lots of dust filters and RGB fans. During our tests, the Origin 5000T Millennium ran cool and quiet, with a maximum CPU temperature of 90°C, and it looked great while doing so. I’m not usually a big fan of RGB fans, but the 5000T case, including glass side panels and clean cable management inside, seems like the most elegant way to implement it.

For connectivity, our Origin 5000T Millennium comes with plenty of USB 3.0 ports. The front panel has four USB 3.0 ports and one USB 3.1 Type-C port, as well as a headphone and microphone jack. There are five USB 3.2 ports on the back, four USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.2 Type-C port, as well as the usual set of audio jacks and an Ethernet port. This computer is like a giant USB hub that you can play video games on. Anyone with tons of accessories should be happy that they don’t have to worry about running out of space for years of using this thing.

Origin 5000T Millennium Tests

It was also nice to see that the Origin 5000T Millennium comes to me in a hard pack.

A wooden box filled with foam inside kept the PC from bumping during transit, and the PC itself had a puffy air bag to keep all internal components safe. My device lost both sticks of RAM (probably due to displacement during shipping) in the PC internals, but they were easy enough to find and reinstall. However, if I had less experience with computers, it would be nice to see some kind of documentation or sticker telling me to check the security of the hardware installation before downloading it.

Finished builds need to be as reliable as possible since a significant portion of their potential owners are people who don’t want to mess around with the practical aspects of PC gaming, so it’s nice to see how much of a priority this is for Origin. , even if it could go further to prevent parts like RAM from falling out.

Speaking of the Origin 5000T Millennium, it’s hard not to mention the price.

It’s expensive, and for most people who don’t want exceptional 4K gaming, Origin offers many different ways to build this PC other than our review. It would be ridiculous to use this PC on a 1080p monitor instead of a high refresh rate 4K monitor that can actually display all the power inside the setup. Don’t make the mistake of buying this PC in this configuration if you will be working on it.

If it were me, I’d downgrade the CPU to an i5 12600K, GeForce RTX 3070, 32GB RAM, Corsair H60i Pro XT,

And stick with stock non-RGB fans to bring the price down to about $3,000. You can get an RTX 3080 for about $500 more, but if you want many players, and there is really no need to use a 1080p monitor. The 5000T’s chassis and overall build quality are well worth the time to find the right hardware for your system budget. Even with expected price hikes due to supply issues, the Millennium is still selling for a higher price than some of the other similarly equipped competitors we reviewed.

But given its affordability right now, it’s not far off in terms of performance and demonstrates the power of a clean build in a stellar chassis. This is a gaming PC that’s definitely not for everyone, but if you have the time and money to customize it to your liking, it’s a fantastic choice for your new rig.
