UK Gaming Computers Styx Mini-ITX System Review


The UKGC Styx has the i5-6500 at its heart, which has a base clock of 3.2GHz and turbos to 3.6GHz, while its TDP is just 65W. Above you can see an overview of the processor thanks to CPU-Z.


The Asus Turbo GTX 960 2GB has a base clock of 1190MHz and boosts to 1253MHz. A screenshot of GPU-Z is above. For this review, the latest 368.39 GeForce driver was used.
