Aria Gladiator Punisher System Review
As you can see the XFX HD7870 LE is clocked at the 1GHz mark, and there is plenty of overhead if you wish to sneak a little more out. The i5-3570K is overclocked to 4.4GHz, although our system came with a 4.4GHz overclock. Certainly the system is speedy enough for all but the most demanding, and given the limited room inside the Prodigy case, we wouldn't want to go much further without upgrading the cooling.
Speaking of cooling, both the graphics card and CPU top out at 80°C. Right on the threshold of where we would consider tolerable. However, as both of these hit the same temperature it's clear that Aria have put a lot of thought into optimising the package, rather than just throwing it all together and it getting as warm as it does without any care.
Most impressively, and we really can't stress this enough, is that the whole system is near as makes no difference silent. Balancing the temperatures of such performance hungry hardware in such a small package is hard enough, but to do it in a manner than even under the harshest of stress tests it remains silent is jaw-dropping.
