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.
We stock the first ever case developed by Ian ‘8Pack’ Parry, in conjunction with Lian Li he unleashes the PC-D888WX ATX Cube PC Chassis to the market.
The D888WX has an astounding mix of looks, hardware support and water-cooling potential and is fully 8Pack approved for only the best hardware the market has to offer.

Connectivity is also well covered, with 4 x Super Speed USB3.0 ports and HD Audio/Microphone connectors on the front I/O panel.
The attractive side window has the 8Pack logo etched in the corner, and there is the option to replace the front drive bay cover with an 8Pack designed version if you prefer. Installation is a breeze with pop-off side panels & front bezels, along with tool-less mounting for the hard drives. The D888WX has been meticulously redesigned from the D666WRX chassis by 8Pack to offer everything needed to build the best PC around, conforming to and even surpassing 8Pack's elite tier standards for an enthusiast PC case, which is why it is used to house the most premium system in the 8Pack range - The Supernova, with heavily overclocked Quad SLI NVIDIA Geforce Titan X graphics cards and an Intel i7 Extreme 5960X CPU fully water-cooled to the highest possible standard.
The new BitFenix Spectre Xtreme fans offer many features redefining the standards of cooling fans. Spectre Xtreme gives you the best performance and aesthetics using the latest in cooling fan technology and innovative designs.
Cooling fans used in liquid cooling systems not only need to have a high airflow but also they need to be optimised for static pressure. The newly designed blades of the Spectre Xtreme not only look good but also improve the airflow of the fan to 66CFM while maintaining optimum static pressure. This makes the Spectre Xtreme fans an ideal choice for liquid cooling solutions.
BitFenix Spectre Xtreme is engineered to provide an extremely silent performance. Use of high quality Fluid Dynamic Bearings have reduced the noise levels while increasing the efficiency and life expectancy of the fans. Carrying on the signature dual frame design of the Spectre series, the new Spectre Xtreme frame design provides a high level of noise dampening due to the use of TPU the construction of the frame.The result is a fan that can operate at different fan speeds from 950RPM to 2000RPM.
The aggressively designed Spectre Xtreme comes in a wide variety of colours and options. The black Spectre Xtreme comes without any installed LEDs, while the Blue, Green, Red and White ones do. Special care has been taken to match the Green LED with the light emitted from NVIDIA GeForce GTX stock coolers. Adding to the customisability of the Spectre Xtreme, the illuminations can be toggled with the jumper cable.
The Raijintek Atlantis
We are the first to list the Raijintek Atlantis series, a range of watercooling products from Raijintek for the user to build their very own watercooling loop, cooling the processor, graphics card and memory.
Starting with the waterblocks in the Raijintek Atlantis range, there are three; the CPU, GPU and VRM (CWB-C1, GWB-C1 and VWB-C1) waterblocks. All designed to fit the latest generation platforms from AMD, Intel and NVIDIA. These blocks are user friendly for installation and can easily be fitted to the user’s hardware.
The waterblocks are copper, melted by alloying brazing and nickel plated then finished off with mirror polishing treatment. The waterblocks have a 3D micro-structure flow tunnel inside enabling the coolant from the cold plate to heat up accordingly and sufficiently to transfer the heat extremely well. The thread type on the waterblocks are 1/4 thread, the standard thread allowing users to upgrade their watercooling system easily.
The Raijintek superior pump is the RAI-PM5, a high level solution for enthusiast and PC builders to create a great watercooling system. The pump features a super flow discharge of 480 L/H and head-lift of 15 feet at a maximum speed, giving the loop a great flow rate. The RAI-RM5 also operates steadily and silently, and also comes with a support bracket providing users a study, reliable and friendly installation.
The tube reservoir, RAI-R10 (10CM tall) is made from high quality Polyocymethylene and Polymethylmethacrylate, a thermoplastic that is durable with excellent dimensional stability. The reservoir is also light-weight and has a waterfall design inside, the unit also comes with many anodised options, from black, red, blue and gold. There is also the RAI-R20 (20cm tall) that is designed for those who want a larger reservoir in their system.
The coolant available is the RAIAQUA-T1, the best partner for the watercooling products, including anti-freeze, preventing the PC cooling system from corrosion and cavitation, antirusting and water scale reducing. Additional to the Raijintek Aqua coolant is three bottles of dye, green, red and blue, so you can create the colours you want conveniently. The RAITUBO-T3 is 200cm in length of watercooling tubing, manufactured from medical grade PVC material, and designed for resisting twisting and collapsing allowing for tighter bends without kinking. With 3/8” barbs and compression fittings, the Raijintek tubing gives users better mounting and easier fitting and an ideal flow.
