Intel® Core™ i7 CPU
The middle of the pack for "Skylake X" ownership, this “Extreme” range of enthusiast-grade processors works on Intel X299 chipset motherboard to deliver the ultimate performance desktop, and with the new 7800X this is a little more attainable. Compared to it’s bigger siblings, the 7800X aims to put hex-core in the hands of the average PC User. With Intel® Core™ i7 Skylake-X processor family you can run several CPU heavy programs simultaneously, without sacrificing performance.
Hydro Series™ H100i v2 Extreme Liquid Cooler
The idea behind dual radiator water-coolers is to extend the radiator’s surface to help with heat dissipation so that the radiator thickness can be decreased (down to 25mm in the case of the H100i V2) to make for easier installation. Corsair’s H100i V2 has a 240mm dual fan radiator and 2 of the same SP120L PWM fans that can be found bundled with the H80i V2, with the difference that in this model the fans are mounted side by side, both blowing cool air through the radiator’s mesh at the same time. This design choice results in increased cooling efficiency, particularly when the fans are spinning at lower RPM values, therefore producing less noise. The stylish design that is shared by the higher end Hydro series models and the support for the Link software make this cooler a strong performer that will keep temperatures in check even in the most extreme OC scenarios.
NVIDIA™ GeForce® Graphics
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.
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 coolingsolution, 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.
256GB Super Fast M.2 SSD + 1TB Seagate Barracuda Storage
Included is a super fast 256GB M.2 SSD for ultra fast boot times, and speedy read and writes. M.2 is still solid state storage which means it is just as reliable as a typical SSD, but as it runs through the PCI bus it is not limited by the SATA3 interface. M.2 drives are currently some of the fastest storage options available as they are capable of much faster transfer speeds than SATA will allow. With 256GB 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.
