Our unique chassis is key to the innovative design of our bespoke PC system
Your office deserves a PC system that’s small yet powerful. Our unique design offers a PC system built using industry standard components for reliability and upgradability yet is around half the size of a traditional desktop tower system.
Despite its small size, performance and specification are high. The compact chassis can accommodate an optical drive, 2 hard drives or SSD drives, a full size mATX motherboard and ample space to accommodate standard full height add on cards.
We include a high efficiency 80+ Bronze power supply as standard which not only saves on electricity consumption but is also extremely quiet.
Chassis dimensions are 132 mm (W) x 284 mm (H) x 328 m (D).

The Intel Core i5-7600K vs the Intel Core i7-7700K is a hotly debated contest, and as with most of these things it all comes down to a matter of perspective. Fans of the i5 point out that the Hyper Threading available on the i7 is still not a technology widely utilised by game designers, and spending a limited budget on more is unnecessary. However, the benchmark video below from digitalfoundy show significant improvement in frames per second (fps) in the step up to the i7, and as you are already considering overclocking we guess every little bit of performance improvement is important to you.
The i7 not only provides in-game improvements, it will also provide total system performance improvement if you record, render or stream your gameplay. Making use of the additional threads on the i7-7700K to smoothly deliver the additional processes outside of the game.

Choose the best mainboard for your graphics system
Graphical workstations will usually be used intensively throughout the working day. It is important to carefully specify the components used in the build in order to ensure fast and reliable performance.
When choosing a motherboard for our graphical workstation systems we looked at the following criteria:
- Reliability – We require a motherboard able to work under heavy workload 8 hours a day 5 days a week.
- Look for a motherboard with 4 or more memory slots to allow plenty of memory expansion options.
- Look for the board to have an M.2 slot available so that a super fast M.2 NVMe SSD drive can be specified. The use of a fast SSD drive will improve the responsiveness of the computer.
For graphical workstations, we recommend the use of the Gigabyte B250M-DS3H because of its high specification and reliability. The B250 chipset also has slightly better memory performance when combined with the latest 7th generation Intel Core i processors.
The MSI H110M Pro-VH is a good entry level choice if low price is the key requirement.
High performance DDR4 memory can be configured to your requirements
For office productivity, we recommend a minimum of 8GB of memory. For high performance systems, choose a minimum of 16GB.
Memory is available in various speed ratings but for standard productivity systems we recommend using either 2400MHz or 2666MHz rated memory.
Entry level motherboards will usually include 2 memory slots, more expensive motherboards will include 4 or more slots. For best performance, install memory as a pair i.e. an 8GB memory capacity would be described as 2 x 4GB in the product description. This will enable the motherboard to operate in ‘dual channel’ which will offer the best performance.
High performance workstation memory
Select your own configuration of SSD and hard drive
Your choice of storage is important to overall system performance as well as defining the amount of local storage space available on your PC. Windows will read and write many files to your storage drive both during boot up and during the normal course of operation. Using a slow storage drive will make your PC feel sluggish and can be frustrating to use.
Solid state drives (SSD) are far faster than traditional hard disk drives but they don’t usually have as high a capacity and they tend to cost more. Most customers would be advised to specify an SSD of at least 120GB as the primary storage drive as this will contain the OS and will be used to boot the PC. This will give the greatest benefit to how fast the PC feels in normal use and how quickly it boots up or resumes from sleep. If you can afford it, we would recommend specifying an SSD of 256GB or 512GB as you will tend to prefer to store some frequently used data and application files on the SSD due to its high performance.
SSD come in a variety of types and performance. The leap in performance from a HDD to an SSD is massive but performance gains can also be had by moving from a traditional SSD to an NVMe SSD.
Most customers will also wish to specify a second storage drive and we recommend specifying a traditional HDD for the secondary drive. This will enable the use of high capacity storage drives which will offer adequate performance for photos, videos and applications used less often or data which is not so performance critical.

Discrete VGA graphics cards can be configured to your requirements
Our entry pro graphic workstation PC system has been designed to work with Nvidia Quadro professional graphic cards. The system can accept cards ranging from the entry level Quadro P400 to the mid performance Quadro P2000. If you require higher performance Quadro cards than the P2000, please take a look at our larger Quadro graphics PC.
Quadro cards are suited to users running professional computer aided design (CAD), computer generated imagery (CGI) and digital content creation (DCC) applications.
