Scan 3XS Vengeance GTX680 Z68 OC System Review
Having dispensed with our pink protective friend we finally can see the Vengeance Z68 OC in all its glory. There is no denying that the EVGA GTX680 is the most eye-catching part. The front of the case has a couple of subtle logos but otherwise it's thankfully free from excessive branding. Classy and understated is the watchword.
Assuming the obvious elements are installed well, the acid test of the quality of a system comes from the cable management and the Vengeance Z68 OC has taken it to the levels of artwork. There is barely a spare centimetre of cable flapping about and every inch is cable tied and locked down.
It's not just the obvious front part that has got the treatment either, round the back is even more impressive. Seeing the work that has gone into this by the builder we are all looking at our own systems rather guiltily. It's stunning. Just look at the CPU 8 pin cable running up the right hand side of the motherboard tray.
The Obsidian 650D definitely helps as there are so many places to tuck cables away, but even still we just can't get over how neat and tidy everything is. An obsessive attention to detail on an element that doesn't effect the performance (which is what matters in the sales pitch and peoples perception) speaks highly of the underlying principles of 3XS.
