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.

What do I need for VR?

23/05/2016

VRready.jpg

Virtual Reality is set to become the most significant step forward in PC gaming since 3DFX kicked off the 3D accelerator revolution back in the mid 1990s. It delivers never-before-seen levels of immersion, incredible new ways of interacting with the game environment and, for the first time, true detachment from your home office, lounge or wherever else your gaming setup resides.

VR won't just revolutionise home entertainment however, it's set to bring about incredible new opportunities in the business space as well. Imagine being able to explore a hotel and grounds before you book a holiday, or see in (virtual) real life how a room you are renovating will look before you get the contractors in? Imagine the possibilities for military and medical training. The possibilities are endless.

The question is, does your current rig have the power to handle it?

Why is VR so difficult to run?

To run a conventional PC game “smoothly” and with “good graphics” it’s generally accepted that you need to achieve a consistent 30fps frame rate and a 1920x1080 resolution. This is a bar easily surpassed by any current Chillblast gaming PC, but one the “next gen” consoles consistently fail to hit. 30fps might be smooth enough for a regular monitor, but it falls well short of VR’s requirements. To make sure the game scene can keep up with your head’s movement without invoking motion sickness you need to achieve a consistent 90fps. In the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift the game environment are rendered at 1680 x 1512 per eye; a total output resolution of 3024 x 1680. Added together this means you need a PC with roughly 7x the performance of one that can deliver 1080P and 30fps!

So I need to spend thousands of pounds?

No! Advances in PC technology mean that the minimum specification for VR is surprisingly accessible. Firstly you need a good quad core CPU with performance equivalent to an Intel Core i5 6400 or 4590. Secondly, you need a minimum of 8GB of memory. Finally you need a good video card –a GeForce GTX 970 or an AMD R9 390 (or better). One thing's for sure – the VR experience that will be enabled by the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be a far cry from PC VR, as these consoles simply lack the raw horsepower to enable such an experience.

Here's just a selection of our fabulous VR-Ready range of PCs that prove you don't need to break the bank to enjoy virtual reality right now.
