The Troodon has been understandably the most popular system in the Carnivore series. It seemed everyone liked the smaller form factor fully custom water cooled system and with changes to flagship product across the component spectrum, comes an update to this little powerhouse. Juts like the first Troodon, we have decided to run with the most powerful Intel CPU on the Z170 platform, and of course for GPU, we selected the GTX 1080 from NVIDIA. Both have been custom water-cooled to allow for some serious over clocking, however this time around we have elected to use a larger 360mm radiator, just in case you wanted to go SLI.
The whole system has been encased in the brand new In Win 303 case, with a full tempered glass side panel to show off this system in all its glory. We have of course given the In Win 303 the full carnivore treatment, wrapping it in black Carnivore Vinyl.
Virtual Reality Ready
GeForce® GTX graphics cards provide a powerful next-generation platform for the ultimate immersive virtual reality experience. Rigs and cards marked with "GeForce GTX VR Ready” ensure that your VR games will be optimized with a best-in-class GPU. Immersive VR requires seven times the graphics processing power of traditional 3D apps and games. NVIDIA’s unique set of features—such as multi-res shading—mean you get the right level of performance, image quality, and latency to ensure your VR experience is nothing short of amazing..
Launched in August 2015 as part of a refreshed line-up dubbed "Skylake”, the latest Intel Core i7 6700K processor features similar performance to the previous generation Core i7 4790K, but with more overclocking headroom thanks to 14nm fabrication as opposed to 22nm for the outgoing model. Now with support for DDR4 memory, improved onboard graphics that supports DirectX12, and up to 6x faster storage bandwidth, all this equating for a more future-proof solution.
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.
Nvidia’s newest, most powerful and most energy efficient card to date. The GTX 1080 is truly a work of art, not only more powerful than Nvidia’s previous generation but also more efficient drawing only 180 Watts with a single 8pin connection from your PSU. The GTX 1080 has been designed with 4K gaming in mind, which means it devours 1080p and 1440p gaming, and still manages to average around 45 – 60 frames in 4K scenarios. This truly is one of the best single card solutions for 4K and VR gaming to date.
For latest generation NVIDIA and AMD cards you can now take advantage of DirectX 12, this Microsoft API is an extremely efficient interface that optimises the way graphics resources are distributed. The latest version delivers noticeably increased performance for all the graphics card models that support it, with upcoming game titles taking even more advantage of it in the future.
DDR4 is the latest generation of memory, optimized for the latest Intel chipset motherboards, it offers higher frequencies that start at 2133Mhz, greater bandwidth and lower power consumption than DDR3 modules. In terms of real-world performance, there isn’t much difference as the faster frequencies of DDR4 are offset by tighter latencies of DDR3, with no conclusive winner. With future advancements DDR4 will deliver a performance advantage as latencies are reduced and games takes full advantage of the faster frequencies.
Just when you though storage options were fast enough, M.2 comes racing out the gate. The Samsung 950 Pro M.2 drives are equipped with the enhanced bandwidth or NVMe, which outperforms your typical SATA SSD by almost 5 times in sequential reads and over 2.3 times in writes. This makes the Samsung 950 Pro M.2 range the perfect storage companion for those wanting blistering boot times and responsiveness for professional and high-end workstations. You will also find any games installed to the 950 Pro M.2 will benefit from significantly shorter loading screens, to help you stay focussed on the game.
To cater for the bulk of your storage needs, alongside the M.2 we have included a conventional 2TB HHD for mass storage of large files, or games. Not quite as fast as an SSHD or SSD, but significantly larger storage for the price. Typical platter drives are still supreme for lower cost larger scale storage, the perfect option for that ever increasing game library.
The RMx series from Corsair are aimed at the enthusiast looking for a Poer Supply capable of delivering extremely stable voltage regulation and high efficiency, with the added visual appeal of flat modular cables. The RMx series models are rated 80 Plus Gold, which means that they perform at over 90% efficiency, in other words, these PSUs are not only handy when it comes to your energy bill, but also, because they produce less heat, quieter than less efficient ones. Corsair have opted for a particularly high grade of 105C Japanese capacitors, for smooth power regulation and reliability.
