SCAN 3XS GW-HT10 in Develop 3D Magazine

Scan should be given a lot of credit for bringing overclocking into the mainstream. What used to be a specialist treatment for custom workstations is now done as a matter of course by the Bolton-based manufacturer. And it does it very well. Overall, the Scan 3XS GW-HT10 is an excellent choice if you are looking for a powerful mainstream CAD workstation.

Hexus Recommended award for the 3XS Performance Q10

The system can barely be noticed when idle - you'll need to go right up close to hear the gentle hum of the fans - and it doesn't get loud when gaming, either. We recorded a remarkably-low noise reading of 33.8dB while playing games. We'd normally expect that level of noise from a gaming PC that's idle, but to be able to keep noise levels that low while gaming is a real plus point.
