As each computer is custom built to order, there is the possibility of slight variations from the photos, although each order is built with the same care. The graphics cards differ in terms of cooler design and brand, this is dependant on stock, as they are sourced from different board partners.
Using the same clever chassis design from the 400C, the 460X sports the same clever PSU and HDD shroud, and sloping front panel which provides a very clean outside aesthetic. The 460X although a mid-tower case still has full support for up to an ATX mother board and has great cooling support with space for 3 fans 120mm fans at the front and an additional 2 at the top, easily enough to meet all of your watercooling needs.
Corsair has successfully made the 460X even better looking by adorning it with tempered glass panels on both the side and front to help show off your new system build in all its splendour.
Intel® Core™ i5 CPU
The 6600K had been the long standing gamer’s favourite, providing 4 cores for optimal performance in game and for productivity. Alongside this its K series Sku meant that extra performance could be gained through overclocking providing great performance without stretching to an i7. The 7600K is no different coming in at the same price to performance sweet spot, but improvements in efficiency of the 14nm process provides cooler performance and better overclocking potential. Out of the box the 7600K also comes with a higher turbo frequency of 4.2GHz over the 6600Ks 3.9GHz meaning even if you want to leave the clocks stock, you will still receive a fair boost in performance when it is needed.
We offer pre-overclocked CPUs on certain machines, resulting in improved performance in CPU-intensive tasks. This would be a moderate overclock that wouldn't have much impact on the lifespan of the CPU, it has been approved by our R&D team and would only be offered with an improved CPU cooler to counter the increase in temperature. There is also the option to remove overclocking, as Core i5 and upwards feature "Turbo Boost" which ramps up clock speeds by default as and when it's called for.
Corsair H100 240mm Liquid Cooler
The Corsair Hydro Series H110 is a 240mm AIO liquid cooler that provides twice the surface area of a 120mm AIO cooler. This larger surface area and extra fan provide very stable cooling performance allowing higher GHZ, lower temperature overclocks on unlocked CPUs. With performance that surpasses smaller surface area AIO coolers, you can also expect quieter operation thanks to its improved cooling performance.
NVIDIA™ GeForce® Graphics
Pascal For The Masses. NVIDIA’s newest Pascal based cards have already proven themselves to be some of the fastest GPUs on the market to date, pushing past previous 900 series offerings. The new GTX 1060 is no exception providing better performance than previous GTX 970s in many applications and games. One of the most impressive things about this card though is its price. The sub £300 card will set you up for VR gaming and has around 3x better performance than previous the generation GTX 960. Overall a much welcomed inclusion to the existing line-up of mid range Gaming GPUs.
Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM
At the heart of Corsair performance RAM modules is cherry picked silicon that has passed stricter tolerances and is able to perform more efficiently at higher frequencies. To increase the thermal efficiency when operating at higher speed, Corsair performance RAM is equipped with an improved cooling cooling solution, a heatsink that sandwiches the memory module. Another great feature of Corsair gaming RAM is the support for XMP profiles, Extreme Memory Profiles is something we take advantage of in the BIOS to set up the PC with optimal clock speeds and latencies.
Fast SSD and 1TB Storage
Included is a fast 240Gb SSD to provide speedy read and write speeds as well as a more reliable form of storage over normal mechanical drives. With 240GB of capacity you'll be able to install the Operating system, as well as some of your favourite programmes and games. Alongside it is there’s a 1TB mechanical HDD for your collection of games and bulky data storage.
Corsair CS Modular PSU
This PSU ticks all the boxes, making it ideal as the power source for a performance machine at a reasonable price point. The key factors in a PSU selection is reliability, efficiency and noise, the CS series PSUs deliver on all fronts with high quality components, over 90% Gold rated efficiency and noise that rarely surpasses 20dB at full load. A bonus feature is modular cabling for a cleaner, less cluttered finish.
Included is the latest version of Windows 10 Operating System, installed and ready to go! With release of Windows 10, the Start menu is back and Microsoft has managed to satisfy many different types of users - PC gamers, console gamers as well as mobile and tablet users. After listening to feedback from millions of users and taking into account our rapidly evolving usage of technology, the latest version of Windows has had a great response and addresses many issues encountered with previous versions.
