Chillblast Fusion Bullet review

£1,000 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Chillblast

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Four of the five PCs here are powered by Intel’s 3.06GHz Core i7-950 processor, but the Chillblast Fusion Bullet power desktop PC is the fastest of all, with a staggering WorldBench 6 score of 151 points.

Four of the five PCs here are powered by Intel’s 3.06GHz Core i7-950 processor, but the Chillblast Fusion Bullet power desktop PC is the fastest of all, with a staggering WorldBench 6 score of 151 points.

Like the Core i7-950-based competition, the Chillblast Fusion Bullet power desktop PC comes with 6GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB hard drive, a 24in HKC monitor and a Radeon HD 5850 graphics card.

It’s no surprise, then, to also see little variation in the choice of motherboard. The Chillblast Fusion Bullet power desktop PC uses the same Asus model as the Arbico, while the Palicomp and CyberPower have plumped for identical Gigabyte boards. The motherboard provides support for high-speed USB 3.0 and offers three PCI Express x16 slots, two of which can be used at the full x16-speed simultaneously.

If you’re happy to stick with just the one graphics card, however, the Chillblast Fusion Bullet power desktop PC's Radeon HD 5850 delivers good gaming performance. The Fusion Bullet is slightly faster than the Arbico, which uses the same card, but it can’t match the gaming performance of the factory-overclocked cards selected by Palicomp and CyberPower.

The EZCool A200D is less showy than some of the system cases seen here, and it’s also less imposing. A top-mounted cooling fan can be fitted, but isn’t preinstalled. The Chillblast Fusion Bullet power desktop PC's  700W PSU also lacks the tidy cabling of the Palicomp’s 750W model.

Supplied with a DVD/Blu-ray combo drive and a set of 5.1-channel speakers, the Chillblast Fusion Bullet power desktop PC will make a great multimedia system.

Chillblast’s Fusion Bullet is a very fast, versatile multimedia desktop PC. But if gaming is your priority, you may prefer the PCs from Palicomp and CyberPower.

    Palicomp Phoenix Flash

    The Palicomp Phoenix Flash has a powerful specification for the price, but omits a monitor, decent keyboard and Windows 7 Professional.

  • Palicomp Core i7 Blitz 950-24 BLU review

    Palicomp Core i7 Blitz 950-24 BLU

    Housed in an imposing Cooler Master Scout system case, the Palicomp Core i7 Blitz 950-24 BLU power desktop PC looks like a fearsome beast. Two handles add bulk, and the build quality is reassuringly solid.

  • Chillblast Fusion Stronghold review

    Chillblast Fusion Stronghold

    The Chillblast Fusion Stronghold teams Intel’s popular Core i5 750 with the excellent Asus P7P55D-E LX motherboard to deliver great performance and some cutting-edge features.
