The Acer Predator Orion 9000 needs a ventilation system that is capable of controlling the temperature generated by all these high-end components. Therefore it is equipped with three 4.7-inch Predator FrostBlade fans that offer up to 16% more airflow and a 55% increase in static pressure compared to previous generations. It also features a liquid-cooled CPU fan to keep the processor cool even when we've been gaming for hours.

Finally, the equipment has some essential features in a gaming computer. It is equipped with Intel WiFi 6 and Killer E3100G for fast and reliable wired and wireless connectivity.
