<RANT> Argh such a retarded choice of case for a pre-built machine. It's not like someone first buys one of those and then decides he needs room for water cooling. The extra size of case doesn't enlarge your penis, make you better in games or make the rig any faster, ARGH. </RANT>
"At a penny under £1,300, this system costs less than it would to buy all the individual components from a retailer and build the system yourself. It also includes a warranty for the overclock. However, there’s enough about the Prometheus for us to leave it on its shelf, and look elsewhere for a high-performance PC."
Roughly how much less is this PC than buying all the parts? If its more than £50, why not buy yourself a Fenrir Titan, then you have it all; top motherboard; top CPU and cooler and that 4.3Ghz overclock; top gfx card. Only problem might be the case, but you can tackle that later on. So why would you look elsewhere?
As for the overclock warranty, if something does go pop while your playing with bigger overclocks, (as long as its not the motherboard) you can quickly swap out the dead part, borrow a replacement (I've done this with my local computer shop before) reset to the original overclock and send it back. Bit of work involved but better than having to buy a new PC because you voided the warranty.
Not bad for Â£1300. Not bad at all. Especially when you factor in the OC and the cable job.
The specs do read like a bit-tech buyers guide, bet they are bit-tech and custom-pc fans.
