Wired2Fire Diablo Predator System review

The Wired2Fire Diablo Predator arrives in a fairly large brown box with fragile stickers on all corners. We normally would expect the courier to kick them with these stickers showing visibly, but thankfully our review sample arrived in great condition. If you were to order this from Wired2Fire you would also get another box with AOC monitor, keyboard and mouse.

The AOC I2352VH is a decent screen, ideal for a competitively priced rig like this.

Double boxing the system is always a good idea and Wired2Fire have included the main system box inside, surrounded by thick bubble wrap as shown above.

Wired2Fire use the Xigmatek Asgard Pro Case box for shipping.

The Xigmatek Asgard Pro case isn’t that exciting a case to look at, but it is well built, sturdy and has plenty of positions for fans. Wired2Fire haven’t populated the case with fans, but we will look at cooling efficiency later in the review.

Along the top of the Xigmatek Asgard is the I/O panel. There is a headphone and microphone port, alongside two USB 2.0 ports, and a single USB 3.0 port. There is also a smaller reset and larger power button. Two lights are visible in the same location, one for drive activity and the other indicating power.

The left side panel (from front view) has two positions for 120mm fans. Wired2Fire have decided not to populate these, opting for lower noise emissions and natural air flow. On paper a 3570k and GTX660 don’t produce a lot of heat anyway, even overclocked.

The Asus P8Z77-V LX motherboard has four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, alongside DVI, HDMI and VGA out. There is also a GB Lan Port, audio connectors and a combined keyboard/mouse header. The dual slot GTX660 is visible underneath, with HDMI, Displayport and two DVI connectors. The power supply is mounted at the bottom. This case has a large exhaust fan next to the motherboard I/O panel and above this are two holes for watercooling.

    Its nothing special really. seems to be well routed and a nice build, but its rather dull IMO.

    Good selection of components throughout, shame about the case though, I hate xigmatek fans, they are always so loud. I had to replace several for a friend as they made such a racket. I would have prefered to see a corsair case and cooler rather than xigmatek. forget the monitor. hopefully they allow some adaptions of the core build with better cooling, lower noise.
