AVADirect is a well-established custom computer manufacturer specializing in systems for gamers and power users. They recently sent us an Avant Mini Cube mid-sized gaming PC. The Avant Mini Cube line can be customized with different CPU, memory, storage, accessory, and GPU options. It's built with an ASUS ROG mATX motherboard based on the Intel 100 series chipset and NVIDIA's GTX 1000 series high-performance GPUs, so you have a limited number of customization options, which makes the process of picking out specifications a little easier. One of the most notable customization options is an option to have the CPU overclocked.
For many of us, building a PC is as easy as tieing our shoe laces, but even tieing shoe laces takes practice. Many people fear the prospect of screwing up expensive hardware, and gaming systems like the Avant Mini Cube become much more appealing, especially since they offer a three-year parts and labor warranty with lifetime technical support. The unit shipped to us uses high-performance brand named parts and isn't priced outrageously. Today we take a look at the Avant Mini Cube from AVADirect.
The Avant Mini Cube is a fully built custom PC and uses very high-end components. The unit we have today uses a Corsair Carbide series AIR 540, an Intel Core-i7 6700K overclocked to 4.6GHz (but out unit is using an air cooler instead of an AIO water cooling unit), an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, 16GB (2x8GB) Kingston Fury memory at 2400MHz, a 500GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD, a 1TB Seagate HDD, four ThermalTake blue LED ring case fans, 20-color RGB LED lighting with remote, and white sleeved cabling for the PSU.
The Avant Mini Cube gaming PC is designed primarily for gaming (including VR gaming), but can also handle workstation and power user workloads. With its overclock and top of the line components, the Avant Cube Mini should be able to handle almost all AAA games without issue.
The Avant Mini Cube in this configuration costs roughly $2449.
