Scan 3XS Vengeance Z68 OC System Review


If there is one thing we're all guilty of, yes even those of us here at OC3D, it's wanting to know the performance of our latest bit of hardware. To this end Scan have helpfully provided some benchmark results on the desktop, visible here on the top right, and some performance tools for you to have some fun with yourself, on the left hand side. Not only is the system 'plug and play' but you don't even need to install something to be able to see your new purchase in all its glory.

PassMark 7.0

PassMark isn't something we use here at OC3D, preferring FutureMarks PC Mark suite, but as it's a small download, available to be used for thirty days evaluation, and included with the Vengeance Z68 OC it would be churlish not to use it.

It also makes a nice change from watching that fricking dog get rotated all the time.

A good quality system but I would expect a more powerful Cpu Cooler, Say a H100 and a PSU of at least 750 wattsQuote

actuallythe 650 is more than enough to power the given parts. It doesn't allow for much headroom but for a pre-built system this looks to be very very decent.Quote

The CPU cooler is plenty powerful enough even with this big overclock. Equally the power draw of the GTX680 is so low that 650W is also more than you need.

Sure you couldn't go SLI without the upgrade, but if you're planning on that then you can configure it before purchase.Quote

The cable management on the back is amazing but the cables on the front could be put round the back for a tighter look IMO; however, compared to most pre-built systems I have seen, this is one of the best for cable management.Quote

At first I was stocked to see 650Watt PSU, abut after reading whole review, I would say, not bad.Quote
