The best of the best
Don’t take no for an answer when it comes to PC gaming and virtual reality. The PC Specialist Vulcan Colossus III is built from the ground up for high resolution and high quality PC gaming, while also being a no holds barred VR ready tower. The two 8GB GTX 1080 graphics cards in SLI deliver framerates between 60 and 120fps at Ultra HD resolutions. The Vulcan Colossus III also uses the power and flexibility of an Intel Core i7-6800K six core processor clocked at up to 4.3GHz. Easily play, stream and record your graphics-heavy games with this enthusiast level processor.

Take your gaming to the next level
The Vulcan Colossus III comes with an overclocked, hex-core Intel Core i7-6800K processor. This enthusiast level processor is designed for ease of use and excellent performance in several scenarios. Despite its higher power usage due to the overclock, the processor still uses quite a low amount of power and still performs exceptionally well in high load scenarios such as physics heavy 4K gaming, h.264 encoding for online streaming and local recording, and VR gaming. Thanks to the 850W Corsair RMX modular power supply included with this PC, you don’t need to worry about not having enough power.

SLI, what is it, why is it better?
This PC system comes with two Nvidia GTX 1080’s in SLI. The technology found within the two cards allows you to link them both together and reap the benefits of a higher framebuffer and better framerates at higher resolutions. It also allows you to run an Nvidia surround setup, where you can link up to three monitors and see more of the action from games, such as GTA 5 and The Crew, in a super wide screen format. Thanks to the benefits of Nvidia’s Pascal architecture, which include lower power usage and higher bandwidth video memory, you can perform GPU heavy SLI tasks on this PC without putting the ultimate amount of stress on your computer.

ASUS X99-E Enthusiast Motherboard
At the heart of the Vulcan Colossus III is an ASUS X99-E enthusiast grade motherboard. The motherboard includes ASUS Aura, a controllable RGB lighting system within the motherboard that you can colour-match the rest of your system to. It also features next generation connectivity, with support for USB 3.1 Type-C and M.2 SSD storage. Alongside all of that, you also get an Integrated UEFI BIOS that is great for novices and professionals alike. The EZ and advanced modes help you find the bit that you are looking to tweak quickly and easily with no fuss.

The X99-E also features Crystal Sound 3 audio technology. The motherboard itself has high quality noise isolation, with a separate layer for the left and right audio tracks. This helps ensure that both channels receive a uniform and equal quality level. Additionally, the power pre-regulator cuts the power-input noise to give you consistent performance in recording and playback. Say goodbye to the unusual background noise in the back of your recording and focus on your recording instead!

HyperX Savage DDR4 Memory
The 16GB of HyperX Savage memory included with this build are built with extreme gaming performance in mind. The Vulcan Colossus III is optimised for Intel’s X99 platform, with the speed clocked in at 2,666MHz, making it perfect for gaming, multi-tasking and streaming. HyperX Savage memory also has easy tweaking options, allowing you to easily overclock your memory just by selecting a profile. There’s no complicated adjustments in the BIOS. Another great feature of the HyperX Savage line of RAM is the low-profile heat spreader. This allows you to save space in your PC and have more room for large air or water cooling accessories.

InWIN 303 enthusiast grade case
The system that makes up the Vulcan Colossus III sits inside a quality finished, enthusiast grade InWIN 303 PC Case. The case itself stands out and catches the eye with the blue LED panel at the front and the tempered glass side panel on the side of the case, which lets you peek inside at all the peripherals. Let everyone know that you are wielding the power of two Nvidia GTX 1080s in your PC by turning the PC on and watching the peripherals light up!

Start off the right way
The Vulcan Nemesis Extreme has everything you need to get started with a gaming computer ready to go. The only other things you’ll need are a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Inside the PC itself you get an ASUS X99-E motherboard, bundled with 16GB of HyperX Savage DDR4 RAM to run your games smoothly. You don’t need to worry about storage as you have a 480GB SSD and a 2TB hard drive inside the box ready to store all your great games, movies and work. This computer also includes an internal WiFi adapter, so you can place it anywhere in your house with a signal.

The good thing about the Maplin exclusive PC Specialist computers is that they do not use any proprietary hardware or software. The computer you buy is fully upgradeable in the future if you ever want to adjust the RAM, GPU, hard drive and any other components. It also comes with a three-year standard manufacturer’s warranty, so if something turns out to be defective or faulty you can get it sorted easily.
