We liked

The RENDA PW-E7F is the first workstation I've tested from Overclockers, and it's a solid performer. The Core i7-5960x is a brilliant workstation processor, and with a 4.3GHz overclock applied, it chews through most benchmarks. Complementing that, the AMD FirePro W8100 delivers both great graphics and OpenCL performance.

We disliked

As of the time of writing, Overclockers doesn't have Nvidia's latest Quadro M6000 listed as an upgrade, although expect this to change soon. And while the custom-made water cooling system looks great, the PW-E7F isn't particularly quiet. Finally, it's also worth noting that while Overclockers is offering a five-year warranty, there is currently no on-site option.

Final verdict

Fast, meticulously built and relatively good value for money, when it comes to performance the RENDA PW-E7F hits the target every time. The Core i7-5960x is a great processor for highly multithreaded, parallel computing tasks, and running at 4.3GHz drives performance to a new level. This is one of the fastest machines I've ever used.
