    Re: Cyberpower Luxe Xtreme

    Nice review, your conclusion was spot on. When I read the spec list I wondered why the system only had dual-channel memory and 16 GB's of it when the cost of installing quad-channel (32 GB's) is tiny against the system cost.

    A pre-built water-cooling system is attractive for people intimidated to build their own, especially on top high end systems like this with 10-cores overclocked. The core temperatures for this system were brilliant but I'd turn down all the fans for a quieter system.

    How often does a water-cooling system need to be cleaned out? Cleaning out a complicated system you did not build may worry potential buyers.

    If there's a filter present, you don't have to clean it for years. You will probably have to replace the pump due to a worn out bearing before having to clean the system.

    Very nice, when I win it in the Hexus comp I'll pay the difference for a second 1080 and 32Gb RAM

    £4,400 on a PC and you still only get a single GPU and dual-channel memory out of the box? Clearly they're marketing this thing to people with way more money than sense.

    Yeah 4 grand and it still can't manage 4k at 60fps... Drop the silly water cooling setup, lighting and OTT CPU, plug in another 1080 and a beefier PSU and it might actually be worth the asking price... wait nah I could still build a PC with better game performance for half that price.
