Leading gaming PC manufacturer YoYoTech has moved to new premises as the company meets growing demand for its products. 

YoYoTech has moved from its previous premises in Hemel Hempstead to a new home in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

It will be business as usual for online customers who use the company’s site www.yoyotech.co.uk – and orders will now be fulfilled from warehouses in Basingstoke.

The company is working on setting up a showroom at its new base, which is inside the headquarters of its parent company, Centerprise International.

YoYoTech is also planning a click and collect service so customers can buy a product online and pick it up from the trade counter.

Ryan Pearton, business development at YoYoTech, said: “We were finding that our existing premises were just not meeting our needs any more.

“It made perfect sense to move our operation to Basingstoke to a building that can house our manufacturing facility and our online operation and everything else we need, but also gives us the opportunity to serve customers face to face.

“All our staff are PC gaming enthusiasts and expert advisers and it will be great to give our customers the opportunity to come in and chat to us face to face.”

YoYoTech has won numerous awards from industry publications and has an enviable reputation among PC gamers for innovation, specialised knowledge and value for money.

The company has held the world PC performance record on several occasions and has attracted national press coverage for its most expensive PC – the super-powerful gold-plated XDNA Aurum, priced at £7,979.

As well as producing cutting-edge PCs, YoYoTech also caters for beginners and gamers on a modest budget.

 Gaming PCs in the firm’s Warbird series start at just £349 and out-perform next-generation consoles, while build-your-own PC starter kits are sold from from as little as £152.99.

YoYoTech has launched a reseller programme and is actively recruiting resellers for its range of PCs. Ebuyer, Laptops Direct and Amazon have already become its stockiest.

YoYoTech is owned by Centerprise International group, a major reseller and provider of bespoke IT systems and services.

UK buyers can get their hands on an an award-winning retro-style PC chassis for the first time thanks to gaming PC experts YOYOTech.

The  901 Retro Mini-ITX Chassis, which combines a classic look with cutting-edge performance features, is now for sale at www.yoyotech.co.uk

The chassis, whose classic style brings to mind the home entertainment systems of the 1970s and 80s, has won a host of design accolades.

It was highly praised at CES in January, where it won Computer Shopper’s “Best of CES” award, and has also been honoured with a Red Dot Award for Design and Innovation.

The chassis, ready to ship at just £149 and compatible with mainboards in the small and highly-efficient Mini-ITX format, is created from a single piece of 4mm aluminium alloy with tinted, tempered glass side panels.
YOYOTech are also selling fully-assembled PCs housed in the retro-styled chassis in three models that form its NINE series - the Nine Silent Q1, Q2 and Q3.

The Q1 model at £699.99 includes a 2TB hard drive, the Q2 version at £849.99 adds a faster Nvidia GTX760 graphics card and 120gb solid state drive and the high performance Q3 at £1,159.99 has a lightning-fast 16GB of RAM. All three models include a noiseless passive cooling power supply.

 Despite its retro stylings the Retro Mini-ITX Chassis features a host of 21st century features including:
  •  Support for graphics cards up to 300mm
  • CPU cut out for easy installation
  • Hidden optical disk drive bay
  • Support for external liquid cooling systems, removable hard drive brackets
  • Super-efficient airflow design
  • USB 3.0 ports
  •  Magnetic aluminium fan filter and hidden vents

 Internally, there are two 2.5-inch bays suitable for SSD drives and another pair of bays that can take two more SSDs or a pair of 3.5-inch drives.

For users who require a slimline optical drive, there is a secluded bay underneath the main chassis.
Connectivity is taken care of with a standard 3.5mm audio port and a pair of high-speed USB 3 ports. 
Airflow is smooth thanks to a whisper-quiet 90mm rear fan, a 120mm fan at the bottom of the chassis and a 120mm liquid cooling radiator. 

The overall dimensions are 350mm x 173mm x 400mm and the 901 can support a CPU heatsink that’s up to 130mm in size. 

YOYOTech business development manager Ryan Pearton said: “This chassis has turned a lot of heads and deservedly it has been on the receiving end of some prestigious awards.

“Its classic design combined with the latest in performance make it an excellent buy and we’re delighted to be offering it for sale in the UK for the first time.”
