Overclockers UK Cobalt Overclocked Gaming PC Review – 8350K & GTX 1060

Rise of the Tomb Raider

We used an initial Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution and graphics set to “Very High” quality with the Rise of the Tomb Raider built-in benchmark. We then set the resolution to 1,440p (2,560 x 1,440) but left all the quality settings the same.

At Full HD resolution, the DinoPC is clearly ahead of the other two systems, although the Cyberpower provides more consistent frame rates with a higher minimum. The Overclockers UK system is bringing up the rear, although this is still a very playable result.

We don’t have 1,440p results for the DinoPC, but the Overclockers UK system is just a couple of frames behind the Cyberpower on average, which is commendable, although the Cyberpower again provides more consistent frame rates.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

We used an initial Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution and graphics set to “High” quality with the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided built-in benchmark. This is a more demanding game than Rise of the Tomb Raider, so using the ‘very high’ settings aren’t recommended with a GTX 1060. We then set the resolution to 1,440p (2,560 x 1,440) but left all the quality settings the same.

The Overclockers UK system surges ahead of the Cyberpower at Full HD.

The story is similar at 1,440p. This is a promising result for Overclockers UK, showing the potential of the Core i3 when overclocked.
