Chillblast Fusion Xcalibur review

Chillblast's Fusion Xcalibur stands out from the crowd, due to its relatively cheap £849 price and the flat, horizontal format of the Silverstone RVZ01 system case. This may allow it to fit where the more cuboid systems can't – such as in living room AV cabinets.

The 1 TB hard drive and 120 GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD are both within easy reach and connecting cables can be plugged and unplugged without tying one's fingers into knots. The case also includes a slot for a slim slot-loading optical drive, although the drive itself is an optional extra on this PC.

The case does offer limited support for liquid cooling options, but Chillblast has opted for a Scythe Schuriken low-profile cooler, incorporating a quiet 100 mm fan. This is quite adequate for the installed 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5-4570 processor, which doesn't support overclocking.

With scores of 6334 and 4386 points in PCMark 7 and PCMark 8 Home respectively, it's the slowest system overall for general use. It also comes with only 8 GB of installed memory.
