Scan 3XS Vengeance Z68 OC System Review

3D Mark Vantage

We've kept you hanging long enough. We know that what you really want to know is whether the LGA1155 Core i7-2700K is capable of pushing the GTX680 as hard as the Hex-Core i7-3960X we used in our GTX680 review.

I think it's fair to say it can, and then some. The P-Score is a fair bit ahead and even the X score is only 100 points behind. Considering this is giving up 2 cores that's hugely impressive.

So if it's good in 3D Mark Vantage, how does it do in 3D Mark 11? Exactly the same. The P score is actually better than we saw yesterday and the X result is only 37 points shy, which is certainly within the variance you'd expect from different runs.

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
