    ^ itz so u don't go changing the settings/OCing urself, they are covering their backs

    the bundle is way overkill, but enjoy it if that is what you want

    lol i remember ocuk bundle with Q6600 it had 1.65v through it rofl

    they don't even check the oc via stress testing ect

    all they do it whack a big enough voltage on so it will work.

    The bundle is OK, they charge around £80 for doing the overclock for you. In my book that is a decent price since it's guaranteed and you don't have to spend the time. Personally I enjoy the OCing, so I wouldn't get this product necessarily.

    The only drawback in my view is the ram. CL9 is a bit weak to be paired up with this uber-cpu. You don't have to go for hand selected DDR3-2000 ram, but some decent CL7 or CL8 memory will only cost around £50 more, which means that if you want to go higher on the OC at a later stage, the memory will have enough headroom to get (close) to 2000 if necessary.

    they claim they are awesome at OCing, they said they would do overclocked bundles based on the phenom 9850, when I commented on the forum that I barely managed to get mine to 3Ghz( 2.94), they said "our technicians have skills, but then proceeded to release the bundles clocked at 2.8?? :3eyes:

    No problem! ;)

    Yup, I do. It's treating me very well to be honest, very happy with the purchase! I love that i can have some space between my cards for better airflow and not sacrifice my x16/x16 for x16/x8. (Compared to my Rampage II Extreme)

    Overall, I'm still testing back and fourth. I've yet to try everything out, I'm going to though, soon! (Gaming! :banana:)

    I'd get this instead and save £800

    That bundle isn't worth it, you will never max out that CPU unless you do extreme HD video editing. The bundle I linked to is more than enough, or just wait for more mainstream 6 core cpus to come out.

    I'd just use ebuyer instead though as I hate OCUK.

    Honestly though if you don't know enough to overclock it yourself then that PC is a waste for you anyway.
