V3 Gaming Move 3DS Water Cooled SFF PC System ReviewMon, Sep 13, 2010 - 10:32 AM
It is not very often that we look at full systems here at Legit Reviews, but here we have a very compact, yet powerful system from V3 Gaming. Equipped in the model tested is an Intel Core i3 540 clocked up to 3.8GHz under an asetek water cooling unit on a Zotac H55-ITX WiFi Mini-ITX motherboard, and GeForce GTX 460 graphics all in a tiny SilverStone SG05 case! Read on to see if this should be your next pre-built computer!
It has been proven time and time again that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 is a beast of a card and has tons of head room for overclocking. The only part of the V3 Gaming Move 3DS that concerns me is the Intel Core I3 540. Personally, I would have liked to have seen a bit more power in the CPU department; fortunately for us V3 Gaming offers a free overclocking service which has been used for this system. The Intel Core I3 540 has an out-of-the-box speed of 3.06GHz. After V3 Gaming has played with if for a bit, the Intel Core I3 540 is now chugging along at a speedy 3.82GHz. That is nearly a 25% increase in speeds. Although, as I said above, the V3 Gaming Move 3DS isn’t designed to be a super computer, but more speed never hurt anyone!
