OcUK Titan 8350a King Cobra MK2 (3.6GHz FX-8120 / 2GB Radeon 7850)

Rating: 7.0.

The first system to hit our labs in 2013 is OverclockersUK’s Titan 8350a King Cobra MK2. Featuring an overclocked octa-core processor from AMD and a 2GB Radeon HD 7850, can the Titan 8350a King Cobra MK2 plough its way through our set of tests?

Based around an AMD backbone, the Titan 8350a King Cobra MK2 Gaming System aims to offer solid performance at a very competitive price point. Ensuring that good performance is achieved, OcUK has overclocked the FX-8120 processor to 3.6GHz by pairing it with a high-end 990FX motherboard from ASRock – the 990FX Extreme 3. Add Sapphire’s 2GB Radeon HD 7850 Dual-X graphics card, a 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD and Samsung’s overclocking-friendly Green 30nm DDR3 memory into the mix, and the Titan 8350a King Cobra MK2 starts to look like a real gaming powerhouse.

With tough competition coming from system builders such as Cyberpower and DinoPC as well as Aria’s Gladiator range, can the OcUK Titan 8350a King Cobra MK2 Gaming System offer performance good enough to beat down its rivals?

Briony is in love - with the Noblechairs Epic chair - in white. Could the chair make you happy too?

    Why mount the power supply with the fan upwards? it won’t be sucking in cold air from outside. Fair, very honest review Luke, id like to see more from you in future.

    Not impressed with this build at all, although I like the AMD processors, good value for money.

  • Xein

    well thats disappointing. Nice components though, but ill build it myself thanks.

  • John

    I would never order a system from OCUK, their customer support is rude. I had a failed motherboard over a year ago and the hassles I had to go through for a reaplcement were incredible.

    Build your own system I say, if you can’t then go to a proper system builder like PC Specialist or Cyberpower

    This is rather devious of ocuk, naming it 8350. People will immediately think they are getting a fx8350 processor!

  • Márcio R.

    This is just terrible, first of all, what drivers did you really use with the 7850, was is the 12.11?!

    Second of all, why in the world name it 8350a…Epic.

    Third, i have a similar system, i5 2400 3.2(4 cores) + Asus 7850 2GB V2, guess what?!My 3dmark11 score is http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/5473705 – 5841.

    Shame on AMD…

    you need a better gpu like nvidia 660Ti or amd 7950 .
    you can save money replace the useless and small 60GB SSD drive with a 750GB WD BLACK.
