SCAN 3XS Isotope 11-sided PC


You just don't see terribly many undecahedron-shaped PCs (that's 11 sides, yo), so we thought we'd share this one. It's a suitably beefy machine for gaming, sporting AMD's 2.4GHz Athlon 64 4000+, dual-DVI Geforce 6800 GT PCIe x16 graphics, 1GB DDR RAM,...

Scan 3XS X58 Core i7 920 system: 3.7GHz of power


Introduction Priced at almost £1,000 more than Dell's Core i7-equipped Studio XPS, this high-end 3XS X58 Core i7 system from Scan might seem a tad over-priced at first glance

Conclusion  Utilising mostly best-of-breed components and housed in a well-designed and well-built chassis from SilverStone, there's very little to dislike about the Scan 3XS Intel X58 Core i7 system

SCAN 3XS Triad 'G80' PC


NVIDIA's G80 SKU has been rolled out today to general acclaim. Peruse our take of this DX10 card that pushes the performance envelope further and feast your eyes on what is destined to quickly become the LGA775 enthusiast core-logic of choice, NVIDIA's...

There's no denying the pedigree behind the SCAN 3XS Triad system. SCAN has taken the enthusiast's approach and included only the components that constitute the very best on offer. Intel's Core 2 Extreme QX6700 CPU, SilverStone's TEMJIM TJ09S chassis,...

SCAN 3XS Athlon 64 FX-62 AM2 system


Today's AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 launch shouldn't have passed you by, especially at HEXUS. And it seems as though everyone wants a piece of the AM2 action. SCAN is tipping its hat into the ring with an FX-62-based rig that's outfitted with the very best...

Final thoughtsThey say first impressions are important. SCAN certainly believes so, packaging a high-end Athlon 64 AM2-based rig in the eye-catching SilverStone Temjin TJ07 chassis. Not only does it look fantastic, it also provides more storage space...

Scan 3XS AMD Chameleon


Cast your mind back a few weeks, just before HEXUS whizzed off to Ibiza for the launch of the new range of ATI Radeon products. The day before HEXUS flew out we published a HEXUS.snapshot, looking at the SCAN 3XS Chameleon. And what a system to leave...

With a specification like the Chameleon has, it's hard not to be impressed on a number of levels. Without sabotaging performance somehow it was always going to be a bit speedy, with the benchmarks bearing that out. It could be even quicker, that much...

IntroductionSCAN 3XS ISOTOPE Everyone wants to be a little different, right?. After all, if you can be different from the rest and still produce the goods, you're more likely to get noticed. SCAN certainly think so, and has made a point of applying...

Scan 3XS-OC


Scan 3XS-OC Overclocked Series System Review Recently, we've reviewed complete PCs from some of the big-name system integrators in the UK. MESH, Evesham, and Time have all had a go at supplying a system that brings the best price-to-performance ratio...

There's more than one method of building of high-performance system. Scan has shown us that. Going down the enthusiasts' route of overclocking the CPU and motherboard has paid dividends for the 3XS-OC system. Scan chose to add an extra 20% FSB and RAM...

Scan 3XS System


SCAN 3XS-M SYSTEM REVIEW The inimitable joy of perusing through various on-line vendors' catalogues. The glee of researching all manner of components; reading reviews from 'sites with a careful eye on exactly what's hot and what's not. The...

A few hallmarks, we feel, of any pre-built, decent system is that it should a) use components that have proved themselves on an individual basis b) excellent workmanship in building a PC from the aforementioned components c) a decent BIOS that makes...
