Product information: Approved - Elite Tier SkyLake Bundle: Intel i7-6700K @ 4.50GHz *SOLD OUT*

Skylake has landed! Are you ready to go?

The new era of Intel Processors is now with us bringing DDR4 high bandwidth memory to the masses. Skylake has revolutionised the way that mainstream hardware is viewed and the lines between enterprise class hardware have been blurred.

Since we got our hands on very early Skylake micro-architecture processors, we have been tirelessly optimising the platform and pushing for the very best performance we can.

Skylake has many advantages that make it worth considering over previous generations for Gamers, Hardware Enthusiasts and Power Users. Some of these notable features include:

- Guaranteed CPU overclock of 4.50GHz
- 14nm transistor count manufacturing process
- Reduced power consumption
- Enhanced CPU and GPU performance
- High Frequency DDR4 Memory Support
- Low TDP output
- High PCI-Express Bandwidth
- M.2 PCI-Express AHCI/NVMe native support

Skylake is not just another mainstream release. The overclocking capability of these 'low thermal output' processors is immense as they run cool out of the box which gives enormous potential to enthusiasts.
There is a reason why Intel has touted Skylake as their most 'Significant Processor Release' for over a decade.

This Bundle has been developed in house at Overclockers UK to provide end users with a safe, reliable and fast base for any powerful system. Ian '8Pack' Parry has approved the use of every component in this bundle to ensure that it not only meets the expectations of our customers but it exceeds them in every way.

The Hardware in this bundle has been carefully selected after extensive testing to present our customers with an attractive price as well as a reliable system using products from trusted partners.

- Skylake i7 6700K OEM: Providing hyperthreading quad core (8 threads) technologies with huge overclocking headroom a staggering 8MB of L3 Cache for responsive and efficient computing.

- Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Hero Motherboard: An exceptional optimised motherboard with intuitive features and a rounded feature set that would complement any system as well as providing a stable base for upgrades in future. With fantastic aesthetics this board not only performs but looks the part as well.

- Select from a wide range of super-fast memory from both Corsair & GeIL including RGB memory! This kit will perform reliably and look fantastic with the other hardware in this bundle.

- Select from a wide range of insanely fast M.2 NVMe SSD's from both Intel and Samsung.


The Elite Tier SkyLake Bundle has specific cooling requirements and all bundles will ship with our tried and tested cooling solutions:

- Asetek 240mm 570LXL: An advanced closed loop performance CPU Cooler that runs quietly. This unit is ideal for use with this bundle and has proven to be one of the most reliable liquid cooling units we have ever sold. Our very own systems are built using Asetek cooling solutions.

- OcUK & SilverStone - 120mm FQ121WC: This fan has been specifically designed to meet our requirements for performance watercooling. We suggest pairing these with a fan controller for the best results.


In addition to this host of Elite Tier Hardware, Overclockers UK will be providing each customer with a comprehensive guide on how to Overclock this system. We will take all the hard work out of this for you meaning the most you will need to do is to type in a few simple settings. It really couldn't be easier.


Please Note*
You will need to ensure that your computer case has enough room to fit a 240mm radiator in the roof or rear.

Performance can only be guaranteed when this bundle is used in conjunction with a quality 80+ Gold or better Power supply unit of suitable wattage for your whole system.

Overclockers UK Suggests using Super Flower Power Supplies to ensure maximum stability in performance applications.

The Fans on this bundle can be loud if ran at full speed. We recommend using them in conjunction with a Fan Controller to get the best balance of noise and performance.

For those looking for a graphics card to compliment this amazing Elite Tier bundle we recommend NVIDIA's GTX 1080 and 1070 series of graphics card.

Not for the complete novice (but expert level not required)

Having built a couple of systems in the past but having never been down the overclocking road I figured why not, so in I went....

The system itself was easy enough to put together (mobo guide will help if you get stuck), albeit a little time consuming with the million cables in the case I ordered for it.

There were sadly not enough mobo mounting screws but no big hassle. The Rad screws came in a seperate little plastic bag.... the reviewer without 'may' have missed them in the box, i nearly did. Totally agree with the packaging comment though, for the price you dont expect bubble wrapped goods as if it were off ebay.

Installing windows on the M.2 drive was tricky.... didnt recognise the drive initially but a quick google search gave me a few steps to do to get things moving.

My first effort overclocking and all seems ok, the auto overclock feature in the UEFI / BIOS led to severe throttling and made games unplayable. A trip to some Youtube videos and bit of research later I got to grips with what was what for a manual setup. Now fully stable at 4.5Ghz but did take a little fiddling in the settings with voltages etc. I'm quite sure that it could be pushed further as the CPU temps in my NZXT H440 case never actually get that high.

I would say if you are not too confident with PC builds or getting your head around technical specs etc you may need a little help getting everything setup.

Paid the price and expect better packaging

Nice bundle but i expect more from overclockers to be honest. The radiator and cpu cooler were unpackaged and the plastic protection for the heatsink wasn't seated as it was cracked and scratched the thermal paste.

How is it you pay £800 and there is no packaging for this - i can't work that out. Plus there are no instructions on how to put it together so you have to google if you are not familiar with how it works.

Also, we are not all experts - the forum instructions don't tell you what becomes obvious after quite a while which is you can overtype where it says auto and type the numbers required = 45.

Pro is yes it overclocks as stated with no issues but a little more care and attention would bring me back again, but this just puts that doubt in my mind now.

I'm sure if you buy this cooling solution on it's own surely it wouldn't just come in a box with no packaging and instructions so why is that acceptable in a bundle?

Also i purchased a 1300W power supply to go with this and it came with a euro power cable - must have missed that in the description - no use to me.

Usual first class service and support

I have been dealing with the guys at OCUK for many years, this upgrade was no different, brilliant sales advice and fantastic after sales support.

The bundle arrived very promptly and well wrapped.
I am very pleased with the performance boost over my now 6 year old I7 920.

The whole system runs almost silent, As it was a new project I purchased a new case, every nut, bolt etc was present. The newer range of cases made installing the radiator a breeze. Thanks to sales support and advice, it all went together without a hitch.

Performance from the this bundle is pleasingly much better than the one I replaced.

5 out of 5 here, for both the bundle and the support.

Fantastic bundle, works like a charm

Although there were some major teething problems with the m.2, these where eventually solve by downloading a hotfix from Microsoft for NVM express support. This is a fantastic pack! runs like a dream, running over clocked at 17% 47x at a max stress temp of 72,

Disappointing

I paid for Sunday delivery but I am still unable to complete the build. For some reason, the bundle doesn't come with the screws needed to attach the fans to the radiator.

After contacting OC, I was told that they didn't know what screws I would need as radiators and fans vary. I was surprised buy their lack of knowledge and lack of concern.
