Our hugely popular, already award winning, Raven II Gaming PC has just won the Vortez.net Gold Award. By combining the very best parts at our disposal we knew we were onto a winner before we sent the system out for review, but a duo of Gold Awards is set to cement the Raven II into gamer legend.
Vortez.net have a very stringent set of tests and benchmarks that they subject any PC they review to, the Raven II handled all without issue and beat of PCs from our competitors. Yet again the Raven II could not be rated higher with top marks for the build quality, design, value and overall performance it delivers making it a clear winner of their “Gold Award”.
Here is the conclusion of the Vortez.net review:
“We have run the little CCL Elite Raven II through our test suite and now it is time to give you our thoughts on the system.
Right from the start, we were impressed with CCL and the component choice within this system. For the budget and from our testing, there is nothing bad to say about this little system. It features a powerful HD7850 graphics card and a high performance CPU from Intel. The two work very well together and give great performance throughout all of our tests.
CCL Elite Raven II Award Winning Gamer PC
The system is not the quietest we have had our hands on but from our point of view, it is nothing to complain about. As soon as you turn on the sounds from all of your games, it will not be noticed. If you wanted to decrease the noise levels, you could always add an aftermarket cooler yourself at a later stage but we do not feel that this is a necessary expenditure.
The system costs just under £570 when it is configured with Windows 8 such as our sample was. Quality components have been used and there is a two year guarantee on the system for your peace of mind too. Although, we feel that with a solid system like this, it will outlast that time period with ease.
Due to the case choice, there is no USB 3.0 available at the front of the system. However, we do not feel that this is a catastrophe and does not affect our final judgement of this system. There is no doubt in our mind about its reward. It is a solid little system and it deserves a gold. It is priced well, and performs brilliantly.
We were very pleasantly surprised by the Elite Raven II. If you are looking to game on a budget, we would definitely recommend this system from CCL Computers. It is flawless and will play all of the modern games with ease thanks to the component choice in this system. They deliver great performance and at a price which is not too far out of reach for those who are looking to get into the world of PC gaming.
