Overclockers UK, or OcUK as they are also known need no introduction. They are one of the UKs biggest and most trusted retailers for everything such as computer components amongst other things. They are continuously going from strength to strength and over the last couple of months, they have been releasing new, high-end systems from the legendary UK overclocker 8Pack and have been causing quite a stir with their introduction.
With that being said, today I will be taking a look at one from their gaming range, more specifically, their Ultima Extreme Wrath system which features an Intel i7 4770k overclocked to 4.5GHz, 16GB of DDR3 memory rated at 2133MHz and the behemoth that is the AMD 7990 GPU. On paper this system looks sure to dominate the latest games but how does it actually perform? With a 2 year warranty and with this system being specially built to order, is it worth the near £2000 price tag? I aim to find out, so without further ado, let’s get on with the review…
