The operating system is the thing that allows you to make use of your computer.  As the name applies, it is to operate your new computer system.

Of course the most well known are Microsoft Windows and the Apple MAC OS.

But there is a brilliant third option, this is LINUX. 

Linux is the kernel, on top of this we have DE s (Desktop Environments). Such as Ubuntu, Cinnemon, KDE and so many more.

We at VUK offer Linux based computer system, with Ubuntu and Linux Mint.

However, you don’t have to stick to our choice, you can use other Linux OS on our systems, such as Debian, Arch, NixOS and many more.

In conclusion with our systems we offer two operating systems;-

  1. Windows 11 Pro;
  2. Linux (Ubuntu & Linux Mint).

Our ethos is to offer system that put you in control, with the right tool for the right job.

The Operating System

Operate, operating, the operation

The processor is for all intents and purposes the heart and brain of the computer.

As, you go up in performance so does the cost.  

At VUK we have decided to have a base line processor, these are the Intel i5 and up, the AMD Ryzen 5 and up.

Whether you are using VUK systems for your day to day task, you are secure in the knowledge that your system can do that bit more when needed.

Good enough is not, what we do.

The Processor

Intel or AMD

Designed for professionals, built for everyone

As, our systems are designed for professionals in mind, the final build choices will reflect how powerful the system will be.

The Ulva system;

Is designed for those who want not only power but style also.  An, excellent choice and great all rounder for everyone, just check the specs.

The Aschak system;

Who need that brute raw computation power for some serious work.  Make the right choices and it will rock.


Desktop or Workstation

Designed for professionals, built for everyone

Keeping the system cool, is highly important.  This being the case all our cases are chosen not just for style but how they can be configured to optimise cooling and airflow.

Our VUK system therefore offer you not only cooling solutions for the case but for the processor also.

We do not use stock coolers our processor cooler are hand picked for all our systems to offer the best in class cooling solutions.

In keeping with our style ethos we also offer RGB cooling options.


Keeping air flowing and power growing

Memory (RAM) matters, the faster the memory speed, the less time it takes memory receive request from the processor and read write data.

Flip side compatibility raises it’s ugly head.  Not all memory will necessarily work with any processor.  

That is why we at VUK make sure this is not the case and you are getting an optimised solution accross the board.

The minimum memory we recommend is 16GB, especially in the age of multi tab browsing and wanting to having your main productivity application open at the same time. 

But once you start going into more specialist application will all the other things mentioned than the more memory the better.


Let me see if I remember

Whether for professional use or gaming, this is a most important component for you setup.  

That is why we at VUK have decided to offer and recommend 12GB 4070 and above or 12GB Ryzen 7900 series and above cards as a base configuration.

This what we feel will ensure that you can achieve the maximum enjoyment and productivity.

We don’t believe in adequate and definitely not mediocre.

Also, keep in mind there are more specialist graphics cards, that we also offer which might not be 12GB.

There are three types of storage Nvmes, SSDs and mechanical hard drives (HDD)

Nvme and SSD ar the fasted and very reliable storage solution ideal for any operating system and applications.  Out of the two Nvmes are the fastest and these are the ones we use on the VUK systems.

HDDs are now the best solution for storage and backup, as they offer at this moment large storage and lower prices.
