    wouldn't look too bad next to an xbone or ps4, and it's well fit into the small case, but that's a ridiculous markup. You could put together something with a similar footprint for much less

    I've made the same arguments to friends before. Their response is always, "Yes Tasky... YOU could, I'm sure... but you are not ME".

    Kinda ends all opposition, really.
    Only thing left is to wait for my, "I informed you thusly" moment.

    I'd rather spend £400 more and get the Corsair One Pro, at least it doesn't look tacky like this thing does.

    I look forward to the day that the edgy blingy RGB gamer fad dies out - because that thing will look incredibly dated in a couple of years. Something a little more understated will age better, and might even attract more buyers to start with.

    Why do they insist on marketing something that costs the better part of two grand to thirteen year olds?

    Re: MSI Trident 3 Arctic

    Still think I would prefer the Scan 3XS Z170 Vengeance Q, for one thing, it is a little cheaper with a extra years warranty, it is quieter with around at least the same performance, plus I have the option to modify the build.
    You would think that if these new console PC's are going to really compete, they should at least match the sort of warranty offered by something like the Scan PC. After all, the MSI Trident 3 Arctic is not aftermarket bits put together by a shop, it is built by a large global parts and complete system manufacturer.

    Re: MSI Trident 3 Arctic

    Those 3DMark numbers seem extremely high for a 1070.

    Currently the top single GPU Time Spy score registered for a system running the i7 7700 is 8763 with a 1080 Ti.

    So how did you get a TS score of 8597 with a 1070?
