Memory Express Velocity MicroATX [Hardware Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Memory Express has out-done themselves. Each and every criticism previous offered (on our original gaming PC reviews) has been addressed, and removed. It is sleek, it is sexy, it is small, easy to carry from home to LAN Party, and is a stone-cold software KILLER.

The Pros: 

+Smaller case, perfect for portability.

+Light-weight (less than 28lbs).

+Dual GTX670s in SLI will CRUSH any game out there (go nuts with your Skyrim mods people!).

+Silent. As. The. GRAVE. The new liquid-cooled approach means I sometimes forget it’s still on.

The Cons: 

-No real room for improvement. What are you going to do next ME!?

Memory Express, it would seem, have been paying attention to the reviews that we’ve been providing on their gear. This is a positive and a negative. How so? Well, for the consumers, it’s good news. Memory Express has proven they can not only take criticisms when supplied them, but show dedication to improving. The bad news is for the writer that has to try and pull apart their third-generation build. Criticisms are harder and harder to come by…

Memory Express Custom Gaming PC Review

Overall Feeling: 

Memory Express’ second generation custom gaming PC is insanely powerful. So much so, it’s near impossible for us to properly test this thing. Like a super-car that was somehow made street legal you may never get to see its full potential, but it’s got ridiculous bragging rights. If you have the money to spend, you’ll be able to watch people drool over your PC as they leer insides through the case’s side window. 

The Pros: 

+The twin GTX680s mean never having to worry about lacking the graphical juice for a video game until sometime next year.

+Slim black case offers a sleek and sexy design that doesn’t sacrifice function for form, and actually offers more accessibility than the original build.

+Everything here is top of the line. With a PC of this caliber you get to reverse the industry. Games will be made to try and keep up with your system, rather than you worrying about if your system meets the specs for a game.

The Cons: 

-There’s no real good way to carry it, so if you’re a LAN enthusiast, look at investing something to carry it with.

-The cost is right up there, you’re getting the best, but you need to expect to pay for that as well.

Anyone familiar with the world of PC Gaming, or just PCs in general knows that technology moves quickly. Keeping up with technology is a full-time gig for the dedicated technophile. In the past I’ve equated PC gaming to car building and collecting. Hopefully our readers won’t begrudge me a few more extended automotive metaphors because our PC Hardware sponsor, Memory Express, has basically just dropped a Rolls-Royce in our lap after six months of running with a Lambo.

Velocity G1 IZ68 Gaming System from Memory Express

Overall Feeling: 

The bottom line is that the system is definitely worth the price-tag. It will slaughter every game currently on the market with ease, and chew up your daily computer-centric routines. If you have always been interested in having a superior gaming rig, but don't trust yourself to build one, or just want someone else to blame when things inevitably go wrong, then you can't really ask for much more than this. 

The Pros: 

+Optimized performance

+Serious bragging rights

+Ability to smoke any game currently on the market

+Support staff behind it, should anything go wrong

The Cons: 

-Rather pricey build

-Caters to an unusual crowd (enthusiasts that don't DIY)

Over the last couple of weeks I've had the honour of test-driving Memory Express' first over-clock PC build. It was left in my 'capable' hands to try and break the thing, while also testing out what kind of performance it could deal out as both a home computer (handling my day-to-day tasks like editing podcasts, writing, video editing, and other such boring-talk), as well as a gaming rig. Fans of gaming rigs in general are likely to appreciate everything that went into this, but it was also a phenomenal improvement to my work-life, increasing my workflow about 50 times over...
