Specifications, Configurations and Pricing
The heart of the iBUYPOWER Revolt comes in the form of an Intel CPU. The i7-3770K is the fastest quad-core Ivy Bridge part that Intel has on the market. It features TurboBoost, allowing it to dynamically overclock itself to provide better single-thread performance, as well as HyperThreading, which presents the operating system with 8 threads.
The i7-3770K is cooled by an NZXT Kraken X40 liquid cooling system, which keeps the processor running nice and cool, even under heavily loads. Theoretically, this liquid cooling system should also keep noise production to a minimum. Our cooling editor Chad Sebring reviewed the X40 recently, and it scored very well.
The 3770K is slotted into a custom-designed Z77 motherboard, which reduces reparability of the system. It does appear to be of the mini-ITX form factor, however. It also means that the motherboard could play a role in just how well the Revolt performs.
The Revolt is equipped with 8GB of RAM, which follows my general rule-of-thumb of 1GB per thread. The RAM is configured with two 4GB sticks, meaning to upgrade to a higher amount, you would have to remove both for best performance.
Graphics are provided by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670. The NVIDIA GTX 670 is quite a capable video card, though the Revolt can be upgraded to an NVIDIA GTX TITAN, one of the fastest video cards currently on the market.
Windows 8 64-bit is the operating system pre-installed on our system. Users can customize the Revolt to come with various 64-bit versions of Windows 7 or Windows 8 Pro 64-bit.
The cost for a system like this is $1,399, give or take a few dollars for sales and other discounts.
Configuration is somewhat limited due to the Revolt's small size. During purchase, users can pick from several different CPUs, video cards, storage options and operating systems.
