"OcUK Piranha Gamer W230ST 13.3" LED Full HD Intel Haswell Processor, 1600MHz DDR3, SSD + HDD, NVIDIA"Want a powerful gaming laptop but also need it to be mobile, small and lightweight? Sporting the NVIDIA GTX 765M, the OcUK Piranha delivers and is one of the most powerful gaming laptops under 14" in size. Only 31mm thin and weighing only 2kg, the 13.3" OcUK Piranha laptop delivers the perfect balance of gaming performance and portability at an affordable price.
Also because here at OcUK we do extensive R&D and in house testing, we remove all the factory standard thermal compound/TIM and replace with high quality premium thermal compound that we use in our extreme overclocked PC's. You may ask why do we do this? Well it is simple by doing so the under-load temperatures of the CPU and graphics can decrease by as much as 20c under heavy load situations. So by doing this we get several advantages, cooler running, less chance of thermal throttling, fans run slower and hence quieter, plus of course the lifespan of the product is extended. This service is mandatory on all the laptops we build and we don't charge extra for it unlike some of our competitors. So when buying from OcUK you can be sure you laptop won't thermally throttle its performance or over-heat, further adding to the buying confidence.
Small in size and big in features, the OcUK Piranha features a True HD LED backlit LCD display with a native resolution of 1920x1080, really bringing games and blu-ray movies to life. Sound is superb through the ONKYO dual stereo speakers with audio SoundBlaster Cinema technology delivering clear, loud and stunning audio reproduction.
