I forgot to post,but I received my 15.6 Vortex IX from PC Specialist last week. Brilliant machine, not too loud and undervolts like a champ (YMMV). Popped in my Sammy M.2 when i received it, and to satisfy my curiosity, had a look at the panel manufacturer/type. It's not advertised as an IPS, and I was told by PCS to assume it was a TN panel. It's not, it's an IPS, this one: http://www.panelook.com/B156HAN08.0_AUO_15.6_LCM_parameter_34288.html Hope this helps anyone on the fence.


Ha yeah, What I meant. The reason I think this, is at work we are picking up the 9900k/2080 version at 5kg! which is a clevo. A friend had sent me this. Its the laptop. If its helps at all. Though, what I think he is comparing it against must be something special lol. Id also say, read this, its very indepth to the product - https://www.notebookcheck.net/Schenker-XMG-Neo-17-Core-i7-8750H-GeForce-RTX-2070-Tongfang-GK7CP7S-Laptop-Review.414909.0.html and a hacks page for the laptop. Its for the 15inch version but the 17 one is there somewhere, I just cant be bothered to dig out out :D . https://www.reddit.com/r/laptops/comments/aafhsd/overpowered_gaming_laptop_15_review_after_7/


Thanks mate. I thought this was a tong fang chassis tho?


Didn't see the comment, The panel is quite good as far as laptops go. It has good anti ghosting with the desktop and scrolling via the internet. The panel measures at 311 nits of brightness. So of course, less than the HDR 400 but its still very bright. The laptop is also connected to 3x 32inch 1440p, 144hz, AOC AGONs and works quite well. the g-sync compatible works as expected with the 2070. Work wise, its pretty good. It has 2 modes, so you can turn the GPU off, when on battery. Make sure to get the latest the clevo drivers and not the ones from pc speclist. they are not the most up to date.


Yeah I guess it's an inherent problem. My main concern is the quality of the panel which I don't expect to be good at all.

Perhaps not this exact one but my gaming laptop is from this company & I am just saying it is still running as smoothly as it was the day it arrived! :D This is after very extensive usage and it's 3 years old coming up to 4 ;)


MSI has a 1060 for 1k. Some would tell you to wait the the class action against MSI with the hope it will force the vendor to drop overall prices. ASUS Acer You can find good 1070s around (1.1-1.2)k Plus this is a transition period where you will see more and more 16xx and 20xx series coming up at premium price while the old 10xx will progressively drop.. Ultimately the choice is yours...

Most do, the Recoil and Vyper lineup use TongFamg chassis which are known to have pretty good cooling


Price is now £1,792.00 inc. VAT


Link, pls, TIA + ? any alternate for cousin Panasonic WMM Lenovo explorer? Edit


Some of their laptops use them. Some other models use chassis from another company from China.


I've read that PCSpecialist use Clevo chassis which, again just from reading on the internet said the cooling isnt great.

Thanks. I'll avoid.


Not surprising iv seen a disassembly of this model and the thermal solution looks woefully inadequate, Its tiny and very much unsuited to specs like this.


What a rubbish statement. You do realise they are mainly clevo machines...


Don't get the Defiance V, it will thermally throttle doing anything slightly intensive. I have heard good things about the Recoil's thermals though, i'd assume the ii is the same if not better.

RGB is designed for teenagers who know everything about fashion and nothing about style. It's neon flash. Awful.


Heat for the sheer audacity of posting something so fugly.


Pretty much. TBH the light telling me a system is powered on annoys me sometimes. I can can tolerate a mild white backlight on a keyboard but outside that, it all needs to go away. “Gaming” shouldn’t equal “flashy”. RGB or not, even positioning of those fans on the front of that case is horrible.


Specialist gaming PC for a special person.


You can switch off RGB or set it to a static colour/subtle effect more akin to your tastes. It's customisable. You make it your own That's the great thing about it. There's little downside to having RGB. If you dislike RGB you must also dislike all case lighting in general as RGB does that and much more but can behave just like case lighting of days gone by should the user choose.

That sounds perfect if your pulling that framerate at ultra. (y)


17.3 Really small bezel so it makes the screen seem even bigger but overall the laptop is barely bigger than the 15" Asus I upgraded from, so no need to change my rucksack etc.


Timespy I got 7154 I think it was. Game wise I've played Sekiro, division 2 and metro exodus so far. Sekiro and division 2 are fully maxed out and 60fps. Metro exodus just dips below 60 here and there at ultra with all bells and whistles. Metro games are always bloody power hungry. They all look great though. Noise wise you definitely hear it when the fans kick in but I don't think I've ever had a gaming laptop that's quiet in the 7 that I've owned. I wear headphones anyway so it's all moot.

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/ocuk-kinetic-zx-intel-z390-configurable-coffee-lake-refresh-ddr4-gaming-pc-fs-153-og.html#t=d, This has an i7 9700k and a zotec 2080 (not TI) for £1,821.


Do you want to build it yourself or buy it pre built? A 2080TI will do 4K great but that card alone will cost around £1100 . If building yourself, you could probably get the rest of the parts for £900 ish. A pre built with a 2080TI will likely cost you more.


I’m looking to buy a gaming PC, I had one back like 20 years ago in the 3dfx era when SLI supported cards came out then had enough an moved on to consoles. For 2k can I get a 4K gaming machine that plays effortlessly in med/high or just stick with console for now ? :{


Cheaper than the Samsung fold. Heat.


May aswell go 2k go full top end. 4 years 500 quid a year. Cheap. Thats how i see things. Better kit you buy the longer it lasts. People buying mid end always pay more in the long run. I mean this is mid-high but some crap bits that could be good bits for couple hundred more.

This is based off a Tongfang chassis. You may better know it as the laptops the Wallmart OP lineup is based off but don't let that put you off. People really do like those laptops. From what people have said, the cooling performance in this laptop is really good. I'm hopefully gonna pick one up in April :)


It's the non max-q variant. So 10-15% faster than the 90W in the razer blade.


The Razer blade 2070 max q performs well, being the 90w variant. The 80w is not much more forward than last spec. Which type is this


Currys also stock these machines. Not sure if the have exactly the same configurations but at least you have the options to pick up in store and the (dis)pleasure of dealing with their staff if anything is wrong.

In this case you could not save anything, it came in cheaper than parts bought from multiple retailers. Should have never gone cold.


its not that difficult, but i see your point


not in this case, parts cost more!


I voted hot, and bought the Vortex Alpha so thank you:D I have no idea why this is even cold, if your price up the individual parts on pcpartpicker this pre built comes in cheaper than building yourself. Latest i7 CPU and z390 mobo, Gold rated PSU, Corsair RGB crystal case, 3000mhz ram, latest RTX series GPU, - all the areas that pre builts usualy skimp on like case, slower ram, cheap motherboard and low quality power packs are of high quality here. Maybe its cold just because £1500 is a lot of money

Frustrating not to be able to change out the 16GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2133MHz (2 x 8GB) for 3200MHz, would be so simple for PC Specialist to do that, but at least it's dual channel. I would have liked the option to change out the PSU for a silent RM x series model, say, which PC Specialist offer in the upgrades when selecting upgrades in upgradable models, though could always sell the CORSAIR 450W VS. I appreciate the aim of whoever built this was to keep the price at sub £1000 and it seems like a good compromise at the price. Have some heat!


Yep, that’s how i used to feel. The build was the fun bit, especially in the days of jumpers, with your fingers crossed whilst you pushed the power button. . .

I was the same as you in terms of self builds, but I’ve now gone full circle and purchased one of their review builds in Jan. It was £250 more to self build, and every component in it was sound. That and I just can’t be bothered to build my own anymore. I didn’t buy this particular model, but I was very impressed with the service and the PC in general.

What do you think of this build? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/pc-specialist-discounted-review-build-1479-pc-specialist-2881520 Am I better to hold off for now?


PC Specialist wanted £90 including return postage plus the part (£19) to fix the fan on my £900 laptop I bought with them that was just out of warranty. I bought a fan on EBay for £6.50 and fitted it myself. Issue resolved.


Don’t think it will burst really. There will always be a coin or token that a GPU can mine. And seeing as the various blockchains need this compute there will always be a demand for it. This is my opinion of course buy GPU mining has more staying power.


In the current climate, this is a very decent price. I’d struggle to build from scratch and match this. May have to accept this is the new normal. Not sure what this issue is with the 450w supply. It’s of a good quality, and the whole system won’t draw much more than 200w at load.

Surprisingly, I believe the price has stayed the same since it was released. PC Specialist seem to have not been hit by the crypto currency surge.


I'm still considering it. Wondering how much difference the crypto currency is having on the price of this unit?


Looks like it is still available. It shows at £1391 after removing the OS. It is much cheaper than building your own so go for it!

The last time they had my PC for repairs (which was literally this week) the email I received on what was wrong with it came off quite snotty, otherwise they’re okay(:I


I bought my PC from them last year, the put the build together really well and the process was quick, but I kinda wished I had built it myself as I could have saved a lot more money.


I wouldn't recommend Pcs. Their builds are OK but their customer service is rude and horrendous.



Not True. I've put the code in. You have until 30th November 2017 to use code as why would you have a date to use by 30th November on the voucher. It was applied and presently in the system as a saved quote ready to purchase. So not sure why you are putting people off using it as it will encourage potential buyers to use it. Plus I do find PCSpecialists very competitive as I've calculated I cant build it cheaper. So still better than Blackfriday deal by £30

No I am not forgetting, hyperthreading is also enabled in the benchmarks. And, it's "you're".


Your forgetting hyper threading, effectively comparing half a core on i7+ to a full core on an i3. And, I guess, pulling straight figures from passmark :)


This is still not correct, the benchmark scores will.of course active turbo mode, so the i3 I mentioned does indeed outperform this Xeon in single thread performance.


Actually it does have a 3.6ghz turbo speed, which would be quite attainable if you're not using all the cores anyway - putting it ahead of most i3 and i5. However yes, it's beat in gaming and emulation by most i7 / i9 / extreme editions etc for their superior (4ghz region) single core performance. Hot tip for the moment - E5-1650 v1 / 2/ 3 workstations on ebay. High clocked hex core's, cheap and extremely cheerful :)
