Product information: 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.

Under the hood, there are few options for processor, the Intel i7-4700MQ quad core processor with a base clock rates at 2.4GHZ (up to 3.4GHZ via Turbo Boost technology), Intel i7-4702MQ quad core (2.2 to 3.2GHz) processor, Intel i7-4800MQ quad core (2.7 to 3.7GHz) processor or up to Intel i7-4900MQ quad core (2.8 to 3.8GHz) processor. Inside, the new Intel HM87 chipset supports up to 16GB 1600Mhz DDR3 SDRAM, providing ultimate power and fast performance for hard gaming sessions.

The OcUK Piranha Gaming laptop comes with a new rigid high quality material for construction and a classic design.

For connectivity it includes 10/100/1000Mb Base-TX Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth 4.0 and Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 AGN wireless LAN, with other wireless options that can be selected from the drop downs.

Ok so I will start with a pros and cons list

- Portable yet not too small
- screen is ultra high quality (It's 1080p but as it's 13.3 inch it looks great)
- viewing angles of the screen are amazing
- Back-lit keyboard is great for doing uni assignments in the dark (As i do allot)
- Very powerful hardware for the money
- boots up before the windows sign even appears

- speakers are average for a laptop... so they're poo yet loud
- Case is decent quality but does feel plasticy (Doesn't both me but i know it does with others.
- touch pad keys are not as solid as I would like
- Fan is loud when on full tilt (It is cooling a GPU and a CPU with a single fan so what do you expect)

I brought it without an operating system as I own a cracked copy of windows 7 ultimate (As I will not buy products from Microsoft due to them being corrupt, b*stard company). It did come with a driver CD but it was for windows 8.1 so I has to search the internet on my gaming desktop for the drivers then put them on a usb then install them on here.

All in all I'm SO happy with this laptop!, It plays skyrim on Ultra with MODS and HD texture pack with 30 FPS +. If you turn AA off them it's 60 FPS+. BF4 works so well also. I can't fault this laptop, and due to the size I can take it to uni and game in the lunch break :D

If you're looking for a portable gaming laptop the ISN'T too small to game on yet ultra portable then this is it :)

Big up Overclockers !


Amazing performance, weak build quality

The graphics card, combined with the configuration options provided by Overclockers, is what makes this laptop stand out from the crowd. For the price, you won't get a better-specced small laptop. The display is bright and clear too, making it very pleasant to work with. With default settings it doesn't take much grunt work to get the noisy fan to kick in, but once it comes in it does the job just right. A combination SSD-HD means that it can get to desktop from power-on silently in under 15 seconds, while still having plenty of space for storage. All in all, the basics are good and I'm well pleased with it.

But why is the case so flimsy? I would quite happily have paid an extra couple of hundred to get something that felt less like it was going to snap in a strong breeze. The keyboard is pretty useable, but the touchpad is twitchy, sticky, and the mouse buttons feel like a short Super Hexagon session would end them permanently. The built-in sound is similarly low-end- turn off that Creative Labs Cinema rubbish immediately and plug in your headphones.

The video performance was the key reason I got this laptop, and because of that I am a very satisfied customer. But it is frustrating that I need to plug in an amplifier and external mouse for any extended session, and worrying that the overall package feels flimsy. But it's a good-value machine considering the feature set, so maybe I should expect some corners to be cut.
