Forbes takes a look at a massively loaded Mach V. From its 3-Way SLI Titan Black graphics cards to the hematite paintwork finish, this is as good as it gets. Forbes really made use of all that power too, with a full battery of demanding game tests at maximum detail settings - at 4K resolution!
ForbesMarch 2014This Is 4K PC Gaming With Falcon Northwest's Mach V And Triple Nvidia Titan Blacks
If you have 4K gaming in your sights and need a system that you can abuse for years to come, the Mach V is an excellent choice. Yes, it’s a significant investment, but one I believe is wholly backed up by the system’s build quality, excellent cooling, and outstanding performance.
Maximum PCNovember 2013Tiki mops the floor with the competition at the first-ever Micro-Tower roundup!
So let's just declare this roundup done and over: The Falcon Tiki is clearly faster in every perfromance category we evaluated. Again, if you didn't get the memo: It's the fastest micro-tower we've ever tested.
Maximum PC magazine is always ahead of the curve, and they are the first to get every micro-tower on the market in one room for a head-head competition. For this race we put the Tiki's pedal to the metal to show that micro-towers give up very little over a full sized PC. The results: a clean sweep of the benchmarks. Tiki won 17/17, and was the highest rated system. And it got their "Kick Ass!" product award. Read on for the details...
Hot HardwareOctober 2013Tiki Wins Hot Hardware's Recommended Award!
The Falcon Northwest Tiki nails the luxury SFF category. With its granite base and backlit logo, the Tiki is striking. Every inch of the system shows Falcon Northwest’s attention to detail
Hot Hardware checked out a fully-loaded Tiki with a Titan, Core i7-4770K, two SSDs in RAID zero - the works. They ran a ton of benchmarks, summed up as "killer all-around performance", but just as importantly they spent a lot of time checking out the attention to detail we put into all of our systems. "everything is handled expertly. No part of the system should look like it was just thrown together. It's about attention to detail. That luxury extends to the buying and ownership experience, as well. The Tiki arrived in custom packaging and its accessories (the binder and care package) are excellent. The Tiki's warranty includes overnight shipping for repairs for the first year, which is above and beyond most typical warranties." And the icing on the cake, they described Tiki's noise level as "nearly silent". Read on for the full review!

ForbesMay 2013Forbes calls Tiki "The Perfect PC"
Put simply: The Tiki doesn’t have a weakness. It is the perfect desktop PC in both form and function, whether it’s put to use for business or put to the test with today’s most extreme games.
Forbes loved Tiki's quiet performance, saying "It has no right to be that silent, but it is." But they went into some rarely-covered areas like our warranty "that rises above and beyond anyone in the industry" and the sense of ownership, saying "A good boutique PC manufacturer should do everything in its power to convey the feeling that this is your machine... Falcon Northwest accomplishes this in every way possible." Check out the full review to see why they liked is so much.

AnandTechFebruary 2013High-End Meets Small Form Factor: GeForce Titan in Falcon Northtwest's Tiki
For a user like me, the GeForce Titan in Falcon's Tiki is pretty much as good as it gets.
AnandTech is one of the oldest and most respected hardware coverage sites out there. It's hardcore and in-depth. It's the one our techs read. So to have Anand Shimpi himself praise our Tiki meant a lot more than your average review to us: "For a user like me, the GeForce Titan in Falcon's Tiki is pretty much as good as it gets. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of performance that could be squeezed into a fairly small chassis, without being overly loud. The Tiki wasn't silent, but the days of having to make a trade off between something annoying and something fast are over. It's sort of absurd that between the Core i7 and Titan there are 8.5 billion transistors switching at ridiculous speeds inside this tiny chassis."
