Not everyone has the time or inclination to build their own system, so fortunately there are still a handful of companies in the United Kingdom selling custom builds. Today we look at the latest Fusion Ares system from Chillblast. This £1,399 build is equipped with an overclocked Core i7 5820k 6 core processor, R9 285 graphics card, Gigabyte X99 Gaming 5 motherboard, 16GB of fast DDR4 memory alongside a Samsung 840 EVO SSD. Is it worth the money?
Chillblast have been around for longer than a decade now, and while they initially supplemented their system builds by selling components, they have shifted their focus completely to creating custom rigs for a wide audience of enthusiast user.
The ChillBlast Fusion Ares System is targeting the gamer and features a checklist of award winning components. For peace of mind, Chillblast offer a 5 year Warranty with 2 years collect and return.
