In November 2016 we partnered with Gladiator to bring you a pretty sweet competition. All you had to do was ‘spec-up’ a system costing between £800-1200 using Gladiator’s website, and the winner would not only receive that system as a fully-built PC, but the winning entry would also be built by Gladiator and reviewed by KitGuru. So, today, we are pleased to bring you our review of the Gladiator SuperNova, featuring an i5-7600K, Z270 motherboard and a GTX 1060. Read about the competition we ran with Gladiator over HERE.
You may have noticed that Intel have launched a few CPUs since November 2016, though, so Gladiator have tweaked the specification of the SuperNova, updating the i5-6600K to an i5-7600K, while the Z170 motherboard is now a Z270 motherboard. They also bumped up the size of the SSD from 120GB to 250GB, giving you a bit more speedy storage. In this review we will go over everything you need to know about the SuperNova before giving our final verdict.
