UK’s Most Awarded PC Manufacturer

As one of the top manufacturers of UK gaming computers, Chillblast is no stranger to winning awards. In fact, we’ve taken first place in the PC Pro Excellence Awards (previously known as the ‘Reliability and Service Awards’) a record six times. We’ve also been named ‘Desktop Retailer of the Year’ by PC Advisor for four consecutive years.

But doesn’t mean competition wasn’t intense. Chillblast was up against some of the biggest names in the industry, including Apple, Dell, PC Specialist and Scan. In the most recent round of awards (2015), Chillblast took first place with an astounding 97% customer satisfaction rating.

The secret to our consistently high rankings and stellar customer-satisfaction ratings is simple. You see, from the time that you enquire about a Chillblast gaming computer to the moment it’s delivered, you’ll be dealing with representatives who really understand your needs. That’s because Chillblast only employs PC experts – even for customer service positions.

When you call in, you’ll rarely have to wait before speaking to a representative. And we also check our email regularly in order to offer prompt call-backs. The result is a seamless service model in which you’re kept in the loop and confident that the representative you’re dealing with understands your technical needs and expectations.

5 Year Warranty (Terms & Conditions Apply)

Given the fact that we manufacturer some of the best gaming desktops currently available, it should come as no surprise that we’re willing to stand beside our craftsmanship. Chillblast’s industry-leading warranty offers two phases of protection.

Our standard warranty begins with a two-year collect-and-return package, during which time we offer local-rate telephone support and unlimited repairs. We’ll both collect and return your custom pc at no charge. This applies to all models – whether you purchased a cheap gaming desktop or an ultra-high-spec custom built PC.

But we don’t stop there. Chillblast also offers an additional three years of warranty coverage after your collect-and-return package expires. During those three years, we’ll continue to provide labour-only support.

We believe this is one of the best warranties available from any custom PC builder in the UK. And if you’re looking for additional peace of mind, we also offer a 3 Year Gold Collect-and-Return Warranty as a potential add-on.

Buy a gaming desktop or custom build PC from Chillblast, and the benefits continue long after that initial five-year period. Even out of warranty, Chillblast is delighted to offer customers exclusive upgrades and repair services with discounted parts and subsidised collection, delivery and labour charges.

    CBAERIONFLIGHTSIMLAPTOP

Are you looking for the ultimate flight simulator laptop? You have come to the right place. At 27mm thick when closed and weighing a truly portable 2.4kg, the Aerion is exceptionally light and portable for such a powerful machine, and delivers sim performance seemingly at odds with its stature. At the heart of the laptop beats a quad core Intel Core i7 6700HQ processor running at up to 3.5GHz, 16GB of RAM and the mighty NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB video card. This GPU is capable of chewing up and spitting out even the most demanding of sceneries and aircraft models at full detail, and gives a proper desktop replacement simming experience. Storage has also not been skimped on. A 256GB Samsung M.2 SSD delivers up to 3.2GB/s transfer rates for Windows and your simulator, whilst a large capacity 1TB SSHD Hybrid drive is there to accelerate your photographic scenery. We have tested the Aerion with FSX, FSX Steam Edition, P3D and X-Plane 10, and it delivers high-end desktop-class performance on all titles.

The high-quality turbo response keyboard is backlit allowing you to hit the right shortcut in a darkened room, and two external displays are supported via DisplayPort. There is also the facility to turn off the touchpad at the tap of a button for those who prefer a mouse. A host of shortcut keys run along the top of the keyboard allowing you to adjust brightness, volume, wireless and Bluetooth all at the touch of a button.

In terms of connectivity the Aerion is truly next gen. It has one USB 3.1 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a mini DisplayPort connector, 1.4b HDMI and a pair of audio jacks. You'll get to enjoy built-in 802.11AC wireless, Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth 4.0.

Designed from the ground up for Flight Simulation

Chillblast's range of Flight Simulation PCs are designed solely with flight simulation in mind. We've spent thousands of hours testing Microsoft Flight Simulator, P3D and X-Plane with different hardware configurations and know we've picked the ideal choices at each price point. Whether your simulation of choice is tackling a tricky landing into Kai Tak in a PMDG 737, or if you prefer gliding over the Somerset levels in a Cessna 172, Chillblast delivers the performance you need.


 

Intel Skylake 6th Gen Technology.

At the heart of this PC lies an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, one of Intel's latest "Skylake" processors. This CPU is tuned for extreme performance and delivers the best possible performance in 4K video, photo editing, gaming and other processor-intensive tasks.


 

Incredible NVIDIA Graphics

Brand new from NVIDIA, the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics card in this PC is based on the award-winning Pascal GPU architecture and offers exceptional performance in current and future games. It's also ideal for powering VR or multi-monitor setups while its low power consumption means it contributes very little to the PCs noise profile. Unlike previous generations of notebook GPUs, this is a full fat GTX 1060 6GB, as found in the desktop. It offers performance equivalent to a desktop GTX 980.


 

Samsung M2 SSDs for Lightning Storage Performance

Delivering bandwidth as high as 3.2GB/s, the Samsung SM961 sets a new benchmark for storage technology. Directly connected to the PCIe bus, the SM961 is as much as 6x quicker than conventional 2.5" SSDs and plugs directly into the motherboard itself, freeing up valuable drive bays. These M.2 interface drives deliver the pinnacle of storage performance, all from a vendor with a peerless reputation for reliability. (Note: Windows 7 is NOT supported)


 

The UK’s most awarded Manufacturer

Chillblast has won more "Best PC Manufacturer" awards than any other firm in the UK. We have won the PC Pro Excellence award six times in a row from 2010 until 2015, the PC Advisor award for best PC firm four years in a row and the Computer Shopper award twice. We have also won thousands of individual product awards and accolades. We stand behind our PCs with an industry-leading 5 year warranty package incorporating 2 years of collect and return with parts and labour and a further 3 years of labour support. Chillblast is an ISO 9001:2004 certified company, a Microsoft, NVIDIA, ASUS, Gigabyte, Samsung, Seagate and Intel Platinum Partner so you can buy with the utmost confidence.
