UK’s Most Awarded PC Manufacturer

As one of the top manufacturers of UK gaming computers, Chillblast is no stranger to winning awards. In fact, we’ve taken first place in the PC Pro Excellence Awards (previously known as the ‘Reliability and Service Awards’) a record six times. We’ve also been named ‘Desktop Retailer of the Year’ by PC Advisor for four consecutive years.

But doesn’t mean competition wasn’t intense. Chillblast was up against some of the biggest names in the industry, including Apple, Dell, PC Specialist and Scan. In the most recent round of awards (2015), Chillblast took first place with an astounding 97% customer satisfaction rating.

The secret to our consistently high rankings and stellar customer-satisfaction ratings is simple. You see, from the time that you enquire about a Chillblast gaming computer to the moment it’s delivered, you’ll be dealing with representatives who really understand your needs. That’s because Chillblast only employs PC experts – even for customer service positions.

When you call in, you’ll rarely have to wait before speaking to a representative. And we also check our email regularly in order to offer prompt call-backs. The result is a seamless service model in which you’re kept in the loop and confident that the representative you’re dealing with understands your technical needs and expectations.

5 Year Warranty (Terms & Conditions Apply)

Given the fact that we manufacturer some of the best gaming desktops currently available, it should come as no surprise that we’re willing to stand beside our craftsmanship. Chillblast’s industry-leading warranty offers two phases of protection.

Our standard warranty begins with a two-year collect-and-return package, during which time we offer local-rate telephone support and unlimited repairs. We’ll both collect and return your custom pc at no charge. This applies to all models – whether you purchased a cheap gaming desktop or an ultra-high-spec custom built PC.

But we don’t stop there. Chillblast also offers an additional three years of warranty coverage after your collect-and-return package expires. During those three years, we’ll continue to provide labour-only support.

We believe this is one of the best warranties available from any custom PC builder in the UK. And if you’re looking for additional peace of mind, we also offer a 3 Year Gold Collect-and-Return Warranty as a potential add-on.

Buy a gaming desktop or custom build PC from Chillblast, and the benefits continue long after that initial five-year period. Even out of warranty, Chillblast is delighted to offer customers exclusive upgrades and repair services with discounted parts and subsidised collection, delivery and labour charges.

    CBFUSIONMODERNIST

The Fusion Modernist does away with outdated and frankly inaccurate preconceptions of what makes a good computer for professional architects. It unashamedly has an Intel Core i3 processor at its heart, a consumer graphics card for running your viewport and sits in a small form factor case that takes up a fraction of the desk space a conventional workstation commands. It’s also very affordable, yet delivers incredible performance in your key architectural applications that will eclipse a system costing twice as much from your existing PC supplier.

Having a Core i3 processor at its heart and a consumer graphics card running the viewport might seem like madness according to conventional wisdom, but we’ve done the testing and live by our data. Many professionals spend much of their lives in AutoCAD; an incredibly powerful application, but one that actually runs at its best on high clock-speed, low core-count processors. It derives little or no performance improvement from multiple CPU cores, beyond the division of labour enjoyed by its host operating system. The i3 8350K with its exceptionally high 4.0GHz clock speed actually delivers better performance in AutoCAD than a 12-cored  Xeon E5-2687W v4 costing more than ten times as much.

The 8th generation Core i3 processor is unrecognisable from its 7th generation predecessor. It has a powerful native quad-core architecture, an unlocked multiplier and incredible instructions-per-clock performance, making it competitive with a Core i7-7700 in CPU-dependent architectural applications like V-Ray, Rhino and Vectorworks.

Architectural programs thrive on graphics cards with powerful shader processors, plenty of VRAM and advanced memory architectures. To find a card that matches or beats the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB in the Modernist you’ll need to invest in an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 – a card that at time of writing costs almost as much as this entire Workstation. Application compatibility is assured, and you can lean on Chillblast’s legendary support team – 8 time winners of the PC Pro Excellence award - for assistance if you have any compatibility problems.

All of this carefully selected and optimised hardware is shrouded within a stunning aluminium and steel modernist case, complete with tempered glass fenestration that won’t look out of place in even the sleekest of practise boardrooms.

Don’t be left in the slow lane by buying under-powered, overpriced workstations from your traditional supplier. Isn’t it time you started buying smart?

Built from the ground up for Architects

Every component in the Fusion Palladian has been selected for exceptional performance in professional CAD packages used by architects. We have used our partnership with top architectural practises in London to fully test their entire software suites to find out which applications are multi core sensitive, which ones are clock speed sensitive and which ones are GPU bottlenecked. We have balanced all of these requirements to build a unique high end workstation that delivers ultimate performance on all counts.

Intel Coffee Lake 8th Gen Technology

At the heart of this PC lies an 8th generation Core i3 processor, one of Intel’s latest “Coffee Lake” models. The 8th generation Core i3 delivers 50% more raw CPU performance than its predecessor and has a full quad-core architecture making it faster than 7th generation Core i5 CPUs for most workloads. This CPU is tuned for amazing performance and delivers terrific frame rates in today's games, CAD applications as well as turbo charging 4K video, photo editing and other processor-intensive tasks.

SSD for Lightning Storage Performance

This PC uses a solid state disk for the fastest and most reliable storage solution in the market. SSDs offer anywhere between 5x and 500x the performance of a traditional disk by trading moving parts for lightning-fast NAND flash. This speeds up random access performance by many orders of magnitude and delivers transfer rates of over half-a-gigabyte per second. We have also included a large mechanical drive to store your Steam library and multimedia collections.
