    Do Core i9 and RTX 2080 Super deliver the goods in a £2,200 base unit?

    Re: Cyberpower Infinity X10 RTX

    I do love the curiosities of forums/reviews sometimes....

    A little while back we had a watercooled scan rig costing nearly 3.5x this and nothing was mentioned about the extra cost over base components, all what was said was that it was 'expensive' (it was).... I mentioned the markup and get told I basically don't know what I'm on about by others on the forum because everyone was saying 20% markup (about £1400...) over retail prices is fine... I was saying 20% is too high, 10% is ok though.

    In this review it states that this pc has basically 10% markup, and that's without the argb stuff, but pricing 'isn't quite as competitive as we'd like' and even says it feels pricey at £2200 in the bad column..... Come on Hexus, as they kept saying in the scan pc thread, they need to pay the staff who make it, do the research, planning, testing, the warranty etc...

    Hi,

    Thanks for your comments.

    Value tends to be a larger play in the £2,000 market. Please note that the PCSpecialist Myrmidon II is actually £200 cheaper than buying the components yourself.

    It costs about the same as the components to build the AlphaSync Canine SPEC-7X and AWD-IT 465X because SIs buy in bulk so we feel mentioning the premium is warranted given the context it is reviewed in.

    I agree that at £2000 market that value perception is more important but at the same time, imo, you can't go complaining about mark ups being too high at 10% when you don't complain about markups being too high at 20%. I even mentioned the fact that SI's would get the price below retail in my comments about the scan rig, which would actually make the markup even higher than 20% in the case of the scan rig, but as you only compare to retail prices it's not really fair to consider that because economies of scale and different deals, not to mention current climate and supply chain issues.

    Also that PCSpecialist rig seems to be going for over £2000 if you go direct to their site instead of following the link from hexus, £200 more than review... so there is 2 different prices for what appears to be the same product from what I can see. Yes it still comes in slightly cheaper but can you honestly say it looks as nice as the cyberpower one....

    While I agree that AMD are better options at most price points the two you linked to are not exactly a fair comparison, one is a £1350 rig and air cooled (won't go into the pro's/con's but there is a price difference in the coolers) and the other is clearly using some more budget parts in it (b450 motherboard) to keep the price down.

    It feels liek you get to little and on a hot warm summer day your system would simply overheat or throttle severe down, as it is not common to have AC in Europe.

    Re: Cyberpower Infinity X10 RTX

    I think the bigger question here is who in their right mind would spend £2200 on that system, when the part that makes up approx 1/3 of the cost is about to be replaced. Also, its £2200 and uses an AIO for cooling? I'd expect a custom loop at that sort of money if they are going to put water in it.

    Not really a good option for anyone imo, especially right now.

    A bargain basement £50 AIO even. My guess is that's why the overclock is so anemic: that cooler just doesn't have the capacity to cool a better one.

    that case is a choking point, there is zero to non airflow

    Re: Cyberpower Infinity X10 RTX

    A full 240mm AIO and it still hits 93C under load? £2200 and no 2080ti in a rig made for gaming? Yikes. System builders really like shoehorning in bling that makes no difference (i.e liquid cooling, core i9) while ignoring stuff that would actually make a difference (i.e. better GPU)

    There's a pretty generous plenum for airflow, the case isn't the issue with the cooling here
