Steven's Gaming System Test Setup
- System: Lenovo IdeaCentre Y900 Razer Edition Desktop
- Monitor: Lenovo Y27g Razer Edition Curved Monitor
- Keyboard: Razer Mamba Tournament Edition Gaming Mouse
- Mouse: Razer BlackWidow Chroma Gaming Keyboard
- Headset: Corsair VOID RGB Wireless Gaming Headset
Through collaboration between Razer and Lenovo, the IdeaCentre Y900 RE and Lenovo Y27g RE match up very well with the Razer gaming keyboard and mouse. The lighting effects are also very cool when you turn the lights out.
The Lenovo "Y," slits on either side of the desktop, and the rear fan all have RGB LEDs that can be customized through the Lenovo Nerve Center program.
The Razer gaming keyboard and mouse also light up quite nicely in the dark.
Even the monitor has RGB LEDs, but they aren't that bright.

I was a bit puzzled on why my performance results for the IdeaCentre Y900 RE were not in line with the rest of the stock and overclocked 6700K systems. I did not think that the single-channel memory configuration could have such an impact on the benchmark numbers, so I went ahead and replaced the single 16GB stick with two 8GB sticks. Low and behold, changing out the single 16GB module for two 8GB modules boosted performance in line with the other systems.
However, I decided not to include those dual-channel numbers in this review, because the system does not ship that way. That being said, will you notice the difference between one 16GB stick and two 8GB sticks in real life? The answer is probably no because the system's CPU and GPU are so powerful already.
