PC Specialist Vulcan PBA Review

Closer Look (Internals)
Sporting a very stealthy interior, the Solleron chassis is spacious without being too large. The PSU/HDD shroud at the bottom extends the length of the case which keeps things tidy and organised. The ASUS ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming sits in the background.

Around the back, with the panel removed, things are very neat with cable management done properly. We can also see the Corsair TX650M with a 650W power capacity and 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating; nice to see that PC Specialist have implemented a great power supply here.

Now, swinging back around to the business end. Here we’ve been supplied with an Intel Core i7-9700K CPU which sports 8 compute cores with a boost clock of up to 4.9GHz. There’s also more Corsair equipment; PC Specialist have opted to use the Hydro Series H100x CPU cooler which packs a dual-120mm radiator and a pair of Corsair SP 120mm PWM fans.

Alongside the Corsair cooler is a quartet of Corsair Vengeance LPX memory. This is a slightly odd choice, to use 4 memory modules instead of 2 for a total of 16GB, limiting further upgradeability somewhat.

Behind the M.2 heatsink is a Samsung 970 EVO Plus with 500GB capacity. Boasting speeds way in excess of 3000MB/s in both read and write as well as excellent IOPS ratings, the EVO Plus should be perfect for whatever you can throw at it. The ASUS ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming can be equipped with two M.2 drives, if you wish to upgrade in the future.

Rounding out the main PC components is the huge ASUS ROG NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 rocking a triple-fan cooler and a modest factory overclock.
