PC Specialist Minerva System Review
Published: 10th November 2014 | Source: PC Specialist | Price: £999 |
We know you all love an overclock, and we do to. The i5-4690K in the Minerva is overclocked to 4.5GHz ensuring plenty of raw horsepower despite having to make do without hyperthreading. This wont even be noticeable in anything but the purest of CPU benchmarks.
When you have such a small case, a big overclock and air cooling there is some potential for the temperatures to climb through the roof, but the excellent case fans in the 230T and H60 cooler means that even after an hour of Unigine Valley the temperatures were only around the 75°C mark for both the CPU and the graphics card. This is without the fans causing us to go deaf either. Excellent stuff. Benchmark time.
