Scan 3XS Vengeance GTX680 Z68 OC System Review


Scan 3XS Vengeance Z68 OC System Review


Obviously the i7-2700K is only a quad-core so the LGA2011 based processors spank it fairly heavily. However despite giving up 300MHz against our 2500K and 2600K, the overclock on the i7-2700K in the 3XS really runs them close.


Memory testing is even more impressive. The i7-3930K has quad-channel Corsair GTX8 memory yet the combination of Z68 motherboard and Corsair Vengeance RAM still out-performs it.

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
