Aria Gladiator Juggernaut System Review

3D Mark

We often comment upon how the performance score is largely dictated by the speed of the CPU in the system, and the real test is the Extreme benchmark, which is conducted at a resolution and anti-aliasing level most likely to be used in modern desktop gaming. So it proves here as the P scores are only middling, but the X results are particularly impressive. In fact the 3D Mark 11 X mark is equal to that we obtained from a GTX680 SLI arrangement and not massively behind a single GTX690.

 

Gaming

As we'd expect the GTX660Ti SLI setup at the heart of the Juggernaut happily munches through any game we throw at is. Only Metro 2033 is below 60FPS, and that's notorious for its poor performance on nVidia GPUs. Everything else is chewed up and spat at, even with the games at the maximum possible settings and full HD resolution.

To be honest that's a pretty decent build for a sensible price.

On the whole component selection is sound although I think they could have made more of that CPU overclock. I do have a little issue with providing 16gb of RAM. There's a lot of PC builds available on the market which provide i7 CPUs and 16gb of RAM and frankly it's just a marketing ploy and and a waste of money for a dedicated gamer's build. Bigger numbers aren't always useful and certainly aren't necessary.

I'd prefer to see 7950s wth 3rd party cooling in there instead of the 660s personally, especially given the price these days (at least from a retail perspective) but it's not a deal breaker.

The OCZ SSD though..for me that is. I was on the phone to Aria just this week and it was mentioned that they are still seeing high RMAs for OCZ SSDs and also that all the staff there have M4s in their own rigs. Speaks volumes to me. I can't see why they would risk the extra inconvenience for both themselves and the customer. I guess the margins must be worth the hassle and reputation.

Great to see good packaging and nice cable management too.Quote
