NZXT S340 Gaming Case
The NZXT S340 took the title as one of the best looking, best laid out mid tower gaming cases on the market. Taking design notes from its very popular bigger brother the H440 NZXT removed any mounting options for optical drives to aid in space saving, and equipped it inside with a clever cable management cover. These changes ensured that although a smaller footprint case you could still build full ATX systems that looked brilliant without breaking the bank.
Intel® Core™ i5 CPU
The Core i5 range first launched in 2010, Intel has since refreshed the line-up with a number of generations under it’s "tick-tock” approach to product development. With every new generation the focus has been on increasing performance whilst improving efficiency, reducing the burden on your PSU and cooling system. At the same time, the constant improvement of the integrated graphics on the chip itself has negated the need for an entry level graphics card. If you are a mainstream user who cares about performance then the Core i5 is for you, whilst the Core i7 is for enthusiasts and users with high-end CPU requirements.
Cooler Master CPU Cooler
The Cooler Master Hyper 103 is an excellent cooling solution with its modest proportions it wouldn't obstruct any other slots nearby. Thanks to its low-noise fan and some clever use of copper and aluminium this little beauty is able to cool down a large number of processors currently on the market and is a convenient step up from a stock cooler.
NVIDIA™ GeForce® Graphics
The GeForce® NVIDIA’s new Pascal architecture has already proved itself to be the one to beat, with the GTX 1080 flexing its muscles devouring 1440p and 4k resolutions at very playable frame rates. With the GTX 1070 under the hood it is the same GP104 GPU as the GTX 1080 and performance scaling over the older Maxwell architecture, is just as impressive but this time around with much more wallet friendly pricing. The GTX 1070 like its bigger brother still supports many of the same features such as high band-width SLI pairing, GPU Boost 3.0, Fast Sync, HDR, VR Works Audio and Ansel but at its significantly lower price point, looks to be the new "best bang for your buck” card on the market.
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.
Latest DDR4 RAM
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. It’s the perfect future-proof option, with future advancements delivering further performance advantage as latencies are reduced and software takes full advantage of the faster frequencies.
Fast SSD and 2TB 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.
