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

To test the Overclockers Germanium, we have pushed it through a broad array of benchmarks and tests. We have tested CPU performance, GPU performance, drive performance, thermals, power usage and battery life to give a comprehensive view of the system.

Here are the benchmarks you can expect to find in this review:

  • Cinebench R15
  • CrystalDiskMark
  • 3DMark Fire Strike

We also ran the following games to test the Germanium’s gaming prowess.

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider

For comparison we’ve also included results for a variety of different systems including the Corsair One Elite. This is a very similarly specced machine but without the hard drive and all squished into a tiny form factor, all for a higher price of £2799.

There’s also the PC Specialist Vulcan Pro, which has an i7-8700K processor and GTX 1080 Ti graphics housed in a conventional, understated desktop and costs just £1,749.

The Alienware Aurora R7 provides a slightly lower spec comparison, with it using an i7-8700 and GTX 1080 and it’s priced at £1,729.
