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™ i7 CPU
Process, Architecture, Optimisation. These are the key current aims for Intel with processor improvements for forthcoming CPUs. With Skylake we saw a change over to the 14nm process size, and with the new 7th gen Intel line-up (codename Kaby Lake) Intel have focussed on more efficiency and performance. Not only does the new 7700K provide cooler performance, but there is also a boost to clock speed and turbo has been increased from 4.2 GHZ to 4.5 GHz providing better performance over the previous generation 6700K.
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™ 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.
250GB Super Fast M.2 SSD + 1TB Seagate Barracuda Storage
Included is a super fast 250GB 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 250GB 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 Quality PSU
The TX-M series from Corsair are aimed at the enthusiast looking for a Power Supply capable of delivering extremely stable voltage regulation and high efficiency, with the added visual appeal of flat modular cables. The TX-M 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.
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.
