Scan 3XS Vengeance Z68 OC System Review

Obviously comparisons are difficult as our bench systems are tightly regulated and, at least with these tests, the biggest difference is that our bench rigs are still on Spinpoint F1s rather than SSDs. So there will be a big leap in the results thanks to the use of the Corsair Force 3 in the 3XS. For this reason we've also included some screenshots of the results so you can compare to your own system if you want.

If ever you doubted how much a good SSD can improve your rig, the i7-3930K in the graph is using a HD7970. The only difference is the SSD. Even so, jeepers the Vengeance Z68 OC can fly!

How far graphics technology has come. The underpinnings of the 3XS Vengeance are nearly identical to the Bengal Rig which has RAID0 ForceGTs and a GTX590, yet the 3XS is 60 points ahead, and a long way clear of any of our mechanical HDD bench-rigs, despite a single GPU.

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
