Computer Planet Nvidia Battlebox Review

Computer Planet has loaned us its entry to Nvidia's Battlebox program. And it's fast.

awsome system but at to a certain point I don´t understand why you would use a custom WC loop for a cpu only setup. A AIO WC system would provide sufficient cooling, and would probably cut the costs of the system a bit.

That is true - I think the aim of the system was to add a degree of eye-candy, which is why it costs more than your average high-end PC. You can of course opt for an all-in-one liquid cooler in their configurator if you're not fussed about the green coolant

not so sure those minimums would exite me to pay £3k just about.

2 780 tis would of been a better option for the gpus.

Hi all - many thanks for the valid comments so far.

Just a few points to answer some of your comments/ questions:

- 780 vs 780 Ti: At the time of building the review machine, 780Ti were in tight supply so we had to use 780 to meet the review deadline. However ALL our systems are from our configurator and are fully customisable from the case up. (The BattleBox spec covers 780, 780Ti and Titan SLi)

- Water cooling the graphics cards: We elected not to water cool the graphics cards purely to keep the eye candy of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX theme going (Particularly with the new lighting toys in the latest GeForce Experience) ALL FULL watercooling options are available from our configurator or you can discuss with us before purchase.

- Custom water vs closed loop: As mentioned by Combatus, a closed loop simply didn't give us the visuals we wanted as well as the customisation options of upgrades to full water. Essentially a closed loop would simply not have done a case like this justice. When NVIDIA launched the BattleBox spec and opened it up to selected system builders, many simply submitted their existing, high end 7 series SLi rigs that met the spec........we wanted to be different!

- Most importantly: Our whole site is one big configurator - we offer more customisation than any other system builder in the UK...The BattleBox you see here is just one example of what you can spec/ order - the choice really is all yours! (after all, what's the point in a custom PC if its the same as everybody elses!)

Many thanks guys - always appreciative of your feedback.

I do like the high end system reviews and this one is no different. Awesome spec, style and performance. Well Done!

I've looked at the images several times over the day and the thing that sticks out the most in that system are the two crossed over water cooling tubes. That is annoying the hell out of me.

- We've been testing systems and graphics cards at 4K for a few months now and one thing is certain - it's the most daunting task graphics cards have faced since Crysis.

I'd say 1440p at 120fps is daunting too! And we don't need SLI to get it!

2560x1440x120 = 442 mpixels
3840x2160x60 = 497 mpixels

"In Cinebench, the only CPUs to out-strip the Battlebox were the super-expensive LGA2011 models - the Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition and Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition. "

Is it just me, or did you just repeat yourself?

Otherwise, impressive box ... out of my price range, of course, but impressive.
