For users in the UK, OverclockersUK is one of the major e-tailers for computer components. In a country where off-the-shelf components are almost non-existent except from a few independent stores, we have to go online to get our fill. Today, OverclockersUK invited media the the launch of their new pre-built enthusiast systems. These systems are built to be some of the the world’s fastest systems, and are co-authored with their in-house overclocker and UK #1, 8Pack.
Q: Where did the idea for a line of ‘World’s Fastest Systems’ come from?
A: When my overclocking prowess caught the attention of OCUK, it formed an integral part of my interview when I came to work for them. They were interested in creating a range of super-fast systems, some of the best in the world. That combined with my intense work ethic to be the best spawned the systems we released today, as well as a series of 8Pack inspired systems to be released at a later date.
Q: What is your role in developing/creating these systems?
A: Everything. From the ground up, I decided the components, I dictated what speed we should aim for and in the end I am the one that actually builds the systems in our warehouse. Certain features like the powder coating on the Polaris we called upon the expertise of our team to suggest better ways of doing things, but in terms of getting the right hardware and putting it all together, I am the man for the job.
