Overclockers UK Germanium (i7-8700K & 1080 Ti) System Review

Rating: 9.0.

Like any local system integrator, Overclockers UK can build a wide variety of PCs to suit all sorts of needs and all sorts of prices. With this Germanium system, though, there’s just one set of buyers the company is aiming for: high-end gamers.

With an asking price of £2,399.99, it’s not a cheap option but for that outlay you get all the very best components currently available for a gaming PC. There’s an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, an Intel Core i7-8700K processor, a 500GB Samsung 960 Evo and 16GB of RAM all wrapped up in a stylish, tempered glass chassis with pre-installed lighting.

The processor also comes pre-overclocked to 4.9GHz and the whole system boasts a 3-year warranty for long term peace of mind.

Also, just about all these components can be tweaked and re-configured and you’ll still benefit from the £200 discount that Overclockers UK currently adds to the system. Everything so far suggests this should be a PC well worth considering, so let’s see if it lives up to its promise.
