    64-bit install of Windows 10 Home
    For £1500 and the fact its positioned for gaming I would expect Win 10 Pro!! (Although I would hope they offer the choice of Win 7 Pro or Win 8 Pro instead as well)

    Does the CPU not have a quad channel memory controller, is so seems odd they chose to go with running it in dual channel mode? It may not make much real world difference but seems odd not to squeeze everything out of it.

    Hi,

    On our 3XS configurator we also offer Windows 7 & 8.1. There are no differences in terms of gaming performance between the Home versions and Pro versions of the operating systems.

    Also, the Z170 chipset only has a dual channel memory controller, so even if we used 4 DIMMs we would still only be running in dual channel.

    Thanks,

    Oh how could they disfigure the beautiful 450D like that with an optical drive. (

    "Looking for a reason to upgrade your PC? Right now there are two that may have you reaching for your credit card: the launch of Intel's sixth-generation 'Skylake' processors, and the arrival of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system." might be the best joke I've ever read on Hexus

    Hi,

    Please note that you can configure the system without an optical drive and/or card reader if you so wish.

    Thanks,

    At full load, the 4790K is much quieter than Skylake? Or only a little?

    How many dB?

    Generally depends on the method of cooling not the cpu
