OCUK Infin8 Empress Mk3 System Review

Up Close

When you're spending this amount of money on a system, particularly a watercooled one in a glass case, it's vital that it arrives in mint condition and OCUK have gone above and beyond in ensuring this happens. A giant box, fully lined with air bags, contains the system itself. This system box is surrounded by cardboard to ensure there is absolutely zero wiggle room inside the external box. Within that box is the Infin8 Empress Mk3 which is surrounded by high density foam, further protecting things.

Once you finally unpack in the insides of the case are well protected too. We've often mentioned the genius of the foam bags and in a watercooled system they are even more valuable. With loads of foam keeping the reservoir from moving and two foam bags protecting the rest of the components, the Empress Mk3 is about as safe as its possible to protect a system.

The Lian Li case is an absolute peach. As a cube sized case there is plenty of room to arrange things in a manner you find most pleasing, and tons of room for cable routing. With four USB 3.0 ports on top and enough ventilation for almost any amount of radiators you wish to utilise, it is not just something that looks amazing with its two glass panels, but a case that is as good at the function side of the equation as it is the form.

Rigid HB SLI bridge actually comes in the mobo box now too. Not sure if this was an early sample or something but all mine have them.Quote
