Gadget Show Live 2012 Coverage



Scan had a very large presence at the show, occupying not one but two whole stands!  The larger stand was reserved for showing off their products and Pro Audio division and the smaller was more of a shop where the show attendees could order from Scan’s vast product catalogue.

We have to say that Scan was the most exciting tech-filled stand in the entire show, at least for the KitGuru reporters.  They were displaying a whole host of their custom build 3XS PCs which were accessorised with the latest and greatest gaming peripherals.  There was also a rather advanced 3D Vision racing simulator in one corner of their stand, powered by one of their watercooled systems.


By far the most exciting system on display was the 3XS Swordfish which looked more like a command centre than a gaming PC.  This rather unique system features the Asus Rampage IV Extreme at its heart alongside the Intel Core-it 3930K, 32 GB of RAM and three GTX 580 graphics cards in SLI.  It is fully water-cooled and powered by two Corsair AX1200W power supplies.

The three Dell U2410 IPS screens are fitted to a retractable panel which can be lowered into the desk automatically when the system isn’t in use.  Scan will happily build you one of these but it will set you back £18500 – £25000 depending on the specification.


The Overclockers UK stand highlighted a selection of products from their range at the show and were displaying a number of their custom built systems.


These included the Titan 8500i Vortex that we reviewed recently.  Our most eagle-eyed readers will be able to spot the KitGuru Worth Buying award logo in the photo above!


Whilst Overclockers UK were showcasing a wide range of Kingston products, the Kingston reps were sharing the Zotac stand.  Here we caught a glimpse of the latest HyperX 3K SSD which we reviewed today, here.
