A game changer in case design when it was released, the H440 from NZXT forced you to consider a life without optical media, in exchange for some amazing unseen as standard features. The H440 come as standard with four fans all connected to an included PWM fan hub for more precise control of fan speed and performance, Sound dampening material across the case (usually an added extra you would have to install yourself) and one of the cleanest visuals of almost any case.
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
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.
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.
500GB Super Fast SSD + 2TB SSHD
Included is a super fast 500GB SSD for ultra fast boot times, and speedy read and writes. With 500GB 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 2TB hybrid mechanical hard drive for your collection of games and bulky data storage. Not quite as fast as an SSD, but massively faster than a regular HDD, these “in-betweeners” are our pick for value-for-money and are worth considering
Corsair TX-M Series™ 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 TX-M 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.
