Chillblast Fusion Juggernaut gaming PC

A wolf in sheep’s clothing

Mobile application security vulnerability report

With all this gaming performance you’ll need a decent screen to play them on, and Chillblast has duly obliged by bundling its desktop with a decent 24in flat panel, a Samsung SM-245B, which has a native resolution of 1920 by 1200 and a response time of 5ms.

Helping the gaming experience is an Eclipse 2 gaming keyboard and mouse, and for an even better gaming experience there's a Razor Diamondback 3G mouse bundled too.

The audio experience isn’t bad, either. As the motherboard doesn’t have integrated audio, it comes equipped with a SupremeFX II sound card which provides eight-channel output, nicely matched by the Creative’s T7900 7.1 speaker system Chillblast bundles with the Juggernaut.

The whole set-up is pretty comprehensive

For storage, the Juggernaut comes with a 750GB Samsung drive which, with a 7200rpm spin speed and a 32MB cache makes transferring large files nice and fast - just the job for transferring those large game maps. To help back up your data, there's a Samsung 20x dual-layer DVD burner on board too.

Should you want more storage space then the case comes with four more 3.5in drive bays and four 5.25in bays for you to fill up. As the motherboard supports RAID arrays, you have the choice to combine hard drives either to increase capacity and performance, or to get better data protection.

Verdict

As with most Chillblast systems, the Fusion Juggernaut is low on gimmicks and high on performance. It's a real wolf in sheep’s clothing, as you might not give it a second look, thanks to the understated case and relatively quiet operation. It may seem a little expensive but it can hold its own against systems costing nearly three times as much.
