Content creation sounds like a corporate buzzword, but it refers to making YouTube videos and streaming on Twitch – two of the biggest areas in gaming and technology right now.
They’re growing fast, so it’s no surprise that more people than ever count on these websites for their income – whether it’s their full-time job or just some cash on the side.
YouTube was formed back in 2005 and has grown to become the world’s dominant video-sharing site. It’s tried to muscle in on streaming, too, thanks to YouTube Gaming, which was formed in 2015 to compete with Twitch. That’s no surprise, because Twitch is the biggest site when it comes to streaming: it only launched in 2011, but it’s grown alongside the rise of esports.
Reports are flooding in that a UGO (Unidentified Gaming Object) was spotted touching down at Overclockers UK, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. Eyewitness accounts suggest that the behemoth towering object originated from the direction of constellation Orion and are dubbing it the ‘OrionX’. Ian ‘8Pack’ Parry was the first on-scene and current available information points to him engaging in first contact and swiftly managing to tame the originally hectic visitor. It doesn’t seem biological in nature but looks to possess massively advanced technological and gaming capabilities far exceeding anything available on the consumer desktop market today.
The 8Pack OrionX heralds a new vision in what a desktop PC can be. There is no other like it - in both form and function - wielding many proprietary design features, creating a unique and dominant yet elegant monster of a rig.
“I wanted to create a truly jaw dropping system which would be a world leader in both aesthetics and performance.” - Ian ‘8Pack’ Parry
An irresponsible level of power - The OrionX is the current end game. Only the fastest components are used, regardless of cost. Even with only this mindset, we still didn’t think the OrionX housed enough power… so we added another system inside. Within the innards of the Phanteks Enthoo Elite (originally conceived solely for this project) are not one but two desktop systems, one using the enthusiast’s workstation X99 platform, and the other using the latest Intel high-end platform Z270 (Kaby Lake). ‘Golden Chips’ are used for both platforms, resulting in a 4.4GHz (minimum) 6950X and a 5.1GHz (minimum) 7700K.
Ever since we got our mitts on the NVIDIA Titan X GPU, we have been vigorously testing countless different configurations, with the ultimate goal of bringing to you both the fastest and most affordable fully-fledged Titan X builds available. Configure your own NVIDIA Titan X dream PC from under £1800! Or select the NVIDIA Titan X as your gpu of choice in the following systems – which are the result of many (many) hours of testing, comparing, and overclocking.
The Fastest NVIDIA Titan X PC In The World!
The 8Pack Supernova – When 8Pack got a hold of some new Titan X Pascal GPUs, he scurried off into his lair of experiments and locked the door behind him. A few weeks later, he emerged with a small stack of benchmark results shouting Eureka! After singling out the best 3 Titan X GPUs from his newly acquired stash, these were installed into the 8Pack Supernova in 3-way SLI along with matching EK water blocks and put through their paces. Below, you will find the results of 8Pack’s extensive overclocking and tweaking to attain the combined maximum possible overclock and ultimate stability.
PC gaming is booming thanks to new players, incredible games and innovative technology, and that means there are plenty of options when it comes to your next desktop.
That’s easier said than done. If you’re a beginner, then poring over pages of components can be daunting – and it’s still tricky at times for experienced users. That’s no surprise, given that the market is stuffed with thousands of components that can be assembled in millions of ways.
For us, of course, there’s only one choice – and that’s buying a PC from Overclockers UK.
