Dell XPS 710

 

The Dell XPS 710 is a powerful system. With Intel's quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor and 2GB of DDR2-667 RAM, the system earned a score of 151 on our WorldBench 5 benchmark--a strong result, but below the marks achieved by the quad-core...

Chassis has robust design ; Plenty of expansion room

Side panel is hard to remove

This large, quiet PC provides plenty of performance and expandability for the gamer who has the budget for it.

Dell XPS 710 review

 

When we first wrote about the Dell XPS 710 on November 1, we weren't able to give it a full review because we didn't know the price. Dell finally gave us the number: $5,344 for the configuration we tested. This revelation and some issues with the...

Quad-core CPU brings forward-looking performance; Dell's XPS 700-series chassis remains one of the most unique-looking PC cases on the market; large case means lots of expandability.

Outperformed by much cheaper competitors; Dell's long qualification periods for new graphics hardware might mean more reliability, but it also means that other PCs have next-gen hardware today that the XPS 710 doesn't offer.

The XPS 710 brings quad-core processing to Dell's flagship desktop, but competing systems from others outshine this system in too many ways for us to recommend it. We still like the case and the build quality, and Dell has even beefed up its support,...

Dell XPS 710 (Quad Core)

 

With Intel quad-core support and ATI's latest Crossfire graphics technology, the Dell XPS 710 offers typically smooth performance and stability.

Smooth and stable. Good fit and finish. Striking chassis design. Relatively quiet even under load.

Doesn't take full advantage of nVidia's 590 SLI chipset. Case is very heavy and large. Overclockable, but overclocking isn't supported. BTX chassis limits upgrade options.

Dell XPS 710

 

The Dell XPS 710 builds on the company's XPS 700 line, using the same striking red (or black) chassis, a 1,000-watt power supply, and Intel's latest quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 CPU. Toss in 2GB of DDR2/667 memory, a pair of ATI X1950 XTX graphics...

Doesn't take full advantage of nVidia's 590 SLI chipset. Case is very heavy and large. Overclockable, but overclocking isn't supported. BTX chassis limits upgrade options

Dell's XPS 710 builds on the older XPS 700 by adding Intel quad-core support and ATI's latest CrossFire graphics technology. Offering typically smooth Dell performance and stability, it takes few risks, but buyers may wish for just a little more.

Dell XPS 710 H2C

 

Speaking of cooling, the system's new H2C (which stands for "hot to cold") cooler, nicknamed "Black Ice," uses a two-stage liquid cooling system to keep noise down while providing the thermal capacity needed for high-performance overclocking. The...

Massive Windows XP gaming performance. Overclocked quad-core performance for everything else. Quick 10,000-rpm drives for multimedia tasks. Quiet, once the system boots up. Unique styling. Intelligent port covers. Included 15-month Internet Security...

Takes up a lot of desk or floor space. Pricey. Vista gaming performance lags behind Win XP's (stay tuned for driver updates). Could use a digital media card reader and windowed case. Love-it-or-hate-it styling

Dell cranks it up to 11 with its latest, the XPS 710 H2C. The H2C stands for "hot to cold," which cools the overclocked Core 2 Extreme processor more intelligently than previous cooling solutions.

Dell XPS 710 H2C Performance Gaming System

 

Last summer, Dell agreed to purchase Alienware in a controversial merger of two very different companies. Alienware, who was looking to raise capital to fund its world-wide expansion, found a good partner in Dell when it came to realize that it would...

Great Looks ; Robust Chassis Design ; Killer Performance ; Effective Two-stage Cooling System ; Fairly Quiet ; Factory Overclocked to 3.2 GHz (covered by warranty) with Extra Overclocking Headroom to Boot ; Excellent Value for a System of This Caliber

Motherboard Based on Older Chipset Compared to the Competition ; Standard System Memory Used Instead Of Performance Memory ; No Side-panel Window to Show Off the LED-lit H2C System

The performance of the XPS 710 H2C is fitting of a system of this caliber. Although it suffers from a slight performance hit due to its usage of lower quality, standard DDR2 memory, which limits its memory bandwidth to 667MHz, the factory overclock...

XPS 710

 

Dell's cream of the crop, its high-end gaming machine - the XPS 710 - looks like no other, both inside and out. The street-machine style chassis appea...

BTX/Dell cooling system, powerful graphics, CPU and 750watt PSU, Minimal noise emission, Tool-less case design, Cable management

Size and weight

The Dell XPS 710 may require a slightly deeper pocket than your average PC, but it's a powerful machine with an individual design that's both functional and stylish.
