We love building our own PCs here at KitGuru and we know a lot of you do too, but we understand not everyone has the time or passion to build one themselves. Coming in at £1249.99, is this worth your hard-earned cash?

There are some good pairings here for a gaming machine, everything looks good to me with nothing jumping out as strange. Of course, we’ll put it through its paces later but on first inspection it looks like a very capable gaming machine.
Potential buyers will be pleased to know the system is shipped with excellent packaging, ensuring no damage in transit as well as no components getting shaken loose too. Our review sample arrived in one piece and booted first time.
We’ve got an all-black “murdered out” theme and I’m actually really enjoying this stealthy vibe because not one component lets the theme down, everything is pitch black and it looks excellent. The other thing to note is the case choice is excellent for the chosen components, it’s not overly cramped, nor is there lots of empty space within. Cable management is very good both in the front and behind the back panel too, which is always nice to see. They’ve definitely taken care and attention to detail when putting this system together.
One thing we did spot, however, is the front-mounted AIO cooler. Gamer's Nexus recently posted a video highlighting that it is sub-optimal to install the radiator with tubes at the top, and doing so could reduce lifespan of the AIO. Many OEMs ship liquid coolers in this orientation so it's not something to be hyper critical about, but it is certainly something to point out.
