I got this machine and was instantly pleased- It came in perfect condition, everything in top shape.

This Spec blows away games, I'm entirely shocked theres a need for crossfire (which I didn't take, I'm not MADE of money). This can smoothly run any game with everything turned up to full, and it has a great build quality to boot.

A few minor problems which are partially due to the nature of the order- you can't mount a side fan on the 902 case simply because the amazing heatsink takes up the slot- not a huge problem, since the 902 offers immense airflow so it doesn't make any visible difference.

Another thing is that the Graphics card didn't come inside the machine, this was a slight problem as I had to install it myself, and sort out a bit of cabling- only a minor flaw, since I'm an amateur at building computers and I worked it out after looking at it for a few minutes.

Overall, amazing build, amazing build quality, and amazing customer service from the sales team too, 5 stars!

Great first time

First time purchase from OCUK, of which more to come with enthusiasm.
Had an old PC about 3-4 year old, fps issues and whatnot so decided to purchase this baby towards my birthday present.

what can i say, runs anything i can throw at it. wow players, the least thing you need to worry about is play time, because this monster of a machine runs ultrra shadow 60 fps dalaran

Goodjob OCUK, much love

king regards, Mo.

Vanquish Review

amazing pc, replaced my old pc of 5 years and this game can run asnything thrown at it, first time it came it was damaged in transit. Overclockers UK were very helpful and got it working with everyone installed in a few days. I would buy another pc from them in a few years.

Vanquish Review

After owning my current PC for the last 6 years i thought it was about time i upgraded, "Your telling me".
First impressions are superb, very quite, very fast and very sexy, i use my pc for all manor of duties including general surfing to music production and gaming and i can safely say nothing has slowed it down, i went for the ATI 5870 and changed the harddrive to a western digital caviar black 1TB, win7 professional is a dream to use compared to my old winxp system, i have benchmarked this sytem with an online company and my old system was ranked in the lowest 80% worldwide, this new vanquish is ranked in the highest 1% worldwide, it says my system is so good it should be able to cook me a fried breakfast every morning and deliver it to me in bed with a steaming hot cup of tea, seriously though if you want a system that can handle any game and all applications this is the system for you, dont buy a pc from a highstreet shop that has poor support, OCUK are the dogs danglies.

Vanquish review

Fantastic system but only 4 stars as the ATI 5870 card wasn't fitted. OC said it could be danaged in transit as its a big card. Fair enough, but this should be explained at time of purchase. Also system could not find the 1TB Hard Disk. I had to assign drive letters and as Win 7 to free up the rest of the disk space. Spent a couple of hours sorting these little niggles out and now the system is flying. I can finally purchase some modern games and this things eats them all with everything on Max res and details. Would have awarded 5 stars if not for non notification the Graphics card was not installed and not finding the HDD.

So glad I got this

I debated buying this as my current computer was a Quad Core Extreme already and could play any game I threw at it. But I use 3D software too so I wanted the extra processing power.

I was not disappointed. Yikes, this thing is quick. Renders images in half the time of my 3.00Ghz quad.

Got it with the NVidia GTX480 and this thing eats any game you give it. Even FSX maxxed out at 1920x1200 is amazing.

It was so nice I complimented it with a Dell U2410 a couple of weeks later.

Amazingly quick overseas delivery, brilliant service and excellent build quality.

If you're sitting on the fence about getting this, then don't. You only live once, so just go for it !

I`ll sell my old Quad Core Extreme with my Dell 20" Ultrasharp now, happy in the knowledge I have such a better rig now.

I got this through the dpd next day delivery, it arrived promptly and in good order. Everything was well packed, ancilliaries neatly tucked away in the mobo box. After installing the gfx card I switched the pc on... I thought the fans were knackered but no, they were just very, very quiet. Build quality is excellent, this pc is lighter, smaller and quieter than the Mesh and Dell pc's I previously owned. Cable management inside the case is also far superior to my previous pc's.

It's early days but so far its clear that this is the best PC I have ever owned. Fantastic! I couldnt recommend it enough.

Great Machine

Bought mine last week with the HIS 5970. cant complain with the service one bit. the machine itself flies through everything.im 100% sure that if ever a problem does arise overclockers will deal with it extremely well as they deal with everything regarding there customers. Card is big but fits nicely in the antec 902 and runs nice and cool. everything you could ever want in a pc in my opinion

Value, Quality, Speed

An amazing purchase. I bought this on an impulse buy late on a thursday night (11:30pm) and It arrived the saturday morning by 9:30am. Amazing service.

Overall the quality of this build is superb and I definately recommend it for first-time modders and OC's, can't really fault the case, the ram or the processor but I will comment on the Mboard and G-card.

Basically the graphics card I chose (5870) Is a little too large and a little too heavy for the mountings inside the machine (at 11inches). Although not a major problem this eats up more space than I'm really happy with, and though space inside the case is not at a premium, space on the motherboard is, hence four stars.

Furthermore due to the setup inside with cables, the card was being 'pulled' out of the PCI-E socket due to the hang weight of the card and cables which meant I had to open the thing and re-arrange and jury rig it so it stays in place.

Other than these little quibbles I say this. What are you waiting for?

Not enough hours in the day

Ordered this on Wednesday evening and arrived on doorstep Friday morning - couldn't ask for more! System up and running in under 48hrs!

Had the Storm 'Scout' case (so easy to move about!) and the Sapphire 5870 Vapor-X. System put together really well - clean and tidy installation and no messy cables!

No other comment really necessary - except there aren't enough hours in the day to make use of this quiet, speedy monster that it is.

Order this and you won't be dissappointed. Money well spent. Nice one OC UK.

KP 2010-03-28


Bought this system just over a week ago with the Antec 300 Case, HD 5870 and Win 7 and I am extremely pleased with it. After using Dell systems for over 10 years now, I'm wondering why I didn't use Overclockers sooner... The system and options I chose eats through anything you throw at it with ease even when the overclocking profile is not loaded. Build quality is superb and tech support after purchase are also extremely helpful.

If you crave power, you came to the right place.

MAKS 2010-03-10


I'm running it all in the stunning Fractal R2 case, and with an Nvidia GTX 285. The performance is STUNNING and I'm dual booting Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit AND Snow Leopard 10.6.2 (Vanilla kernel!), both run smoothly and quickly.

I do a lot of video work, like editing and VFX and this eats everything up, especially encoding/transcoding if the programs can make use of the 8 (virtual) cores!

Handbrake finished a 1h50m H264 encode in 19 minutes!

Idling at 45c and load at 85c (90 is the highest I could get it with Prime after a while in a 23c room)


Toby 2010-02-16


Ordered this with a Antec 1200, 5870 gfx and Windows 7 home 64bit.

Amazing machine that is alot quieter than i thought it would be considering the amount of case fans and huge overclock. :P

Thanks for the great service OCuK.

Thundycat 2010-01-28

Great kit - Great service

Ordered the Vanquish on Tuesday afternoon and received it on Thursday morning - great service guys!

Went for a Lancool K58 case, a 5770, and a Corsair H50 cooler, with Win 7 home prem. 64 bit.

Worked straight out of the box and achieves a stable 3.8 GHz when tested with OCCT as suggested by Overclockers. Very tidy build inside.

All I've done so far is unpack, setup, and run for a couple of hours. All good so far.

Will update this review when I've run the box for a month or two.

I am very pleased with my purchase.

Will 2010-01-15

Amazing PC Recommended

I ordered this PC with the Antec 902, a GTS 250 and Windows 7 64-bit and a Dell U2410 24" beauty of a screen, on a Saturday at about 5pm. It all arrived Tuesday as promised at 12:00ish...

...booted it up, it came with window installed and pre-overclocked, and wow, this thing is very fast - amazing for HD Video Editing on Premiere. My 64-bit version of Photoshop now runs at true 64-bit and is like 10 times faster than before...

Startup and shutdown times are brilliant aswell, it takes way less than a minute to get the windows screen from turning it on...

Highly Recommended - Thankyou OCuK

Incredibly quick PC with a build and spec I can't fault for the money even if it did hurt at the time
Problems - I wanted a 1 GB Graphics Card and the Coolermaster HAF 932 Case - not in the original delivered machine - however the HDD was faulty on arrival :-( so the whole lot had to go back.

When trying to explain I had some problems/issues the phone lines are never free and the amount of time spent on the phone on hold is excessive..

I'm a first time customer and I will be back for more. Probably a Dell Ultrasharp 3008WFP 30" Widescreen LCD Monitor I got the Dell UltraSharp 2209WA 22" WLCDM - and it is good - but with this BIG BLACK ULTRA FAST BEASTIE the only thing missing from its awesome performance is a matching awesome monitor. Super quick and remarkably quiet considering the number of fans whirring around. I've been running Windows 7 Pro 64 on this for a few weeks now. Amazingly all good apart from my Nikon Coolscan negative scanner not liking Windows 7

David Mackintosh 2009-11-30

very happy

recieved this best last week and very happy was ment to be delivered friday but came on saturday so no problems also the driver cd was missing for the motherboard hopefully will arrive soon. other than that very happy

m 2009-11-29


Ordered on Friday, arrived on Monday, excellent service from OCUK again. Everything just works and wow what a PC. Upgraded from an E6600 with 2GB and the difference is amazing, cannot fault it. Thanks OCUK :)

Pete 2009-10-27

The Beast

This combined with an Antec 300 and GTX 285 rocks the boat. Super quick and remarkably quiet considering the number of fans inside this system. Stable OC to 4Ghz as well...great system Overclockers.

2 Day delivery was fantastic.

NOTE: system didn't come pre-overclocked but was instructed by OC that all I needed to do was hit F12 in bios to load their profile...all good.

Pip 2009-10-23

Blisteringly Fast

Delivery within three days and an incredibly quick PC with a build and spec I can't fault for the money.
I'm a first time customer who will most certainly be back for more.
Thanks Overclockers!

Neil Eccles 2009-10-09

what a beast

this pc is outstanding, superbly built, quiet yet very very powerful.
i had to rma becouse the ram was faulty , but those guys in the tech dept must be faster than ddr3 cos i had it back up and running within 24 hours.
...just added a samsung 128 ssd as i would be criminal not to :)

thanks overclockers !

perry081064 2009-10-08


I ordered the PC on Wednesday with the GTX 285, Antec 902 and Vista Home Premium 64. It arrived on Friday! That is a ridiculously fast delivery time for a custom build. Well impressed.

As far as the PC goes I couldn't be happier. I've upgraded from a single core machine and the performance increase is incredible! I've been playing World at War, Crysis and GTAIV and they all run perfectly.

As far as Vista is concerned I was slightly worried about it as I've only heard bad things about Vista. But things have changed with the new service packs (I recommend getting SP2) and so far I've encountered no problems. It looks so tidy and is a lot faster than XP in my opinion.

To top it all off I bought this machine in the 'This Week Only Offer' week and got it with all the upgrades for

Ben 2009-10-05

Happy with machine but arrived with CPU

I've been running Windows 7 RTM on this for several weeks now. All good - temps low, no tech issues. Win7 scored 7.6-7.8 (ratings from 1.0 to 7.9) on everything except the hard-drive (5.9).

Scored a 4/5 instead of 5/5 only because when the machine arrived the fan on the Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 CPU Cooler had fallen off the bracket and had been bouncing around inside the case during delivery. It would be better if OCuk fixed the fan in place securely. (It is easy to fix the fan back onto the bracket yourself using the clips, so don't let this put you off buying. It was just a needless annoyance.)

aj 2009-08-30


****there was a typo in my previous review so please use this one****

The best part of this pc is seeing that all the brand names used in the build are up there with the other market leaders.

Its super quiet (with the fans turned down) and quite quiet with them turned up. The build quality is superb. Sadly, I found myself just staring and marvelling at the inside rather than actually getting on and playing some games.

Oh yes games, nothing seems to stress the gfx card, (275) and temps of the cpu and in general are nice and lowish. The antec 902 case is fantastic too. The cpu cooler is staggeringly big to cope with that overclock but its all so tidy in there.

Delivery was fast and so far, I have absolutely nothing to moan about, which isnt like me, I normally love a good moan. Can't fault this though.

Stephen 2009-08-23


A truly fantastic piece of kit, especially when topped off with a GTX285 an Antec 1200 case and an SSD.

Workmanship was great; very neat interior, and possibly the biggest heat sink I've ever seen lol.

Antec 1200 case looks and works extremely well. Due to the cables being hidden it took a little work to transfer my 4 hard disks over to this beast, but don't be put off, it's definitely worth it.

Ordered by phone and the gentleman who took the order was very helpful and knowledgeable about the products and possible tweaks.

This wasn't my first order from overclockers and it wont be my last!
