MSI Computer AEGIS-085US Core i7-6700 16GB DDR4 Review
Unique styling, customisable LED lighting and small size make the MSI Computer AEGIS-085US a striking and visually appealing addition to this list. Sure, it doesn’t qualify for the under $1000 category, but we had to show you what you could get for just a little more.
The CPU is a quad core Intel i7-6700 SkyLake chip running at 3.4GHz and is backed up by 16 GB of DDR4 RAM. Storage is a lightning fast 256GB SSD rated to perform around 2000 x faster than the average HDD – and it is backed up by a 1TB 7200 rpm HDD to give you the extra storage capacity you need – and a 24x DVD RW drive.
Sound is a full 5.1 surround system. There are USB 3 and USB C ports, multiple HDMI and DisplayPort connectors, a DVI Port, gigabit Ethernet and built-in WiFi and Bluetooth.
Clever case design means the power supply heat is separate from the other components and MSI’s ‘Silent Storm Cooling 2 thermal design keeps the rig cool whilst only generating 32dB of noise running at full load (a library is 35dB for comparison).
The MSI Computer AEGIS-085US is a true beast of a gaming rig that looks the part and delivers on performance. Its styling is to drool over and it will handle all the games you can throw at it with ease.
