Chillblast Fusion Juggernaut gaming PC

A wolf in sheep’s clothing

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Two of the Fusion Juggernaut's four memory slots are filled with 4GB of Corsair XMS PC2-6400 (800MHz) DDR2 memory in the form of two modules. These too have been overclocked, so they run at 850MHz but you could squeeze a little more out of them if you wanted to. If you fancy adding more memory, the board supports a maximum of 8GB - just make sure you're running a operating system that can make use of it all. The Juggernaut comes with Windows Vista Home Premium SP1.

As you can imagine all this little lot packs quite some punch, something borne out by its PCMark05 score of 11,000 – the fastest we have seen.

The motherboard is built into a CoolerMaster CM690 case, which may not win anything in the looks department, but does have plenty of space inside to work around and plenty of drive bays for hard disk and optical units. Although there's a lot going on inside, Chillblast has made sure that all the cabling is arranged as tidily as possible, which as well as looking nice, more importantly helps the air flow around the components, reducing the number of damaging thermal hotspots.

Sitting in the base of the case is a Thermaltake 750W modular power supply. Modular power supplies also help in keeping the internals tidy as you only plug in the cables you need. A 120mm case fan sitting high up in the rear panel ducts the hot air generated by the PSU and components out of rear of the machine.
