Tower Of Power: Lenovo Legion Tower 5i

Here's how the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i stays cool under fire

PC gaming is at the best place it’s ever been this past decade, and there has never been a better time to jump into PC gaming than now. But not everyone has the time or know-how to build their own gaming rig, unfortunately, with many unwilling to settle with laptop gaming.

This is where prebuilt PCs like Lenovo’s Legion Tower 5i come in. This prebuilt machine offers a truly plug-and-play experience that you won’t get from building your own, as well as an aggressive and attractive case design and exclusive tech that keeps the chassis cool under pressure.

The Lenovo Legion Tower 5i’s a real looker, thanks to its sleek, aggressive lines and unique design. The Phantom Black chassis has a transparent side that has integrated ARGB lighting, punctuated by Lenovo Legion’s logo that’s bathed in blue LED light when the machine is on. It oozes attitude as soon as you turn it on and is the perfect fit for any gamer worth their salt.

The innards are just as impressive as well: the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i is powered by a six-core, 12-thread Intel Core i5-10400 processor, paired with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super GPU, 16GB (2x8GB) of DDR4-2933 RAM as well as 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD and a 1TB HDD drive for general storage. The Lenovo Legion Tower 5i’s hardware is good enough to drive most AAA games at the highest resolution past 60 FPS. Competitive gamers will only have to worry about pairing a fast 144Hz display with it, as the hardware is more than enough to power games like Valorant past 140FPS on high graphic settings.

The best part is that you won’t have to worry about the GPU or the CPU throttling when the action gets hot and heavy: the chassis has a 28L interior which gives air more than enough space to circulate freely to cool the insides. A 150W-rated aRGB CPU cooler keeps the processor cool, preventing thermal-related performance issues while you’re playing.

The real gem here is Lenovo’s Coldfront 2.0 tech that works in conjunction with the chassis fans as well as the GPU and the CPU. Coldfront 2.0 in a nutshell is a mixture of both the hardware (in this case, the fans in the tower) as well as software. AI tech helps regulate the fan curve depending on the load on the hardware as well as the temperature in the case so you don’t have to worry about performance dips when you’re on your way to your next killstreak.

Adding to the list of perks that comes along with gaming on the Legion Tower 5i is less downtime and quicker turnaround from technical problems, thanks to Lenovo’s 3-Year Premium Care warranty solution. It’s got everything a PC user needs in quickly getting back up with its 24×7 direct hotline to technicians, comprehensive hardware and software support, On-Site Repair, and an annual PC health check to maintain performance. Premium Care is a fitting solution that matches the Legion Tower 5i’s power and a testament to Lenovo’s transformation into an integrated services provider capable of helping consumers facing critical IT issues.

The Lenovo Legion Tower 5i equipped with an Intel Core i5-10400 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super GPU is priced at Php 72,995 and is available at Lenovo’s Legion Concept Store in SM City North EDSA and in all VillMan and Complink stores nationwide.

  1. GTX 1660 GPU desktop for 72k!! , for that price they should have put at least a series 20. There is a lot of option for notebook that has the same spec with almost half of the price. Its like your paying an extra 30k just for a little RGB and the legion logo. If you could spend 70k+, just get your self the 3070( if you could find one) and just build your own .
