Note - Please note that adding in additional memory to the spare slots will require new BIOS settings and the maximum clock speed attainable may be significantly reduced. OcUK recommend a quality brand PSU for use with all our bundles such as the Corsair TX & HX range. Updating the BIOS on the overclocked bundle range will void the warranty on the overclock. If you update the BIOS we will no longer be able to provide support for configuring and maintaining the CPU overclock.

*Please allow between 24 and 48 hours for your system to be built and configured. This may take longer during busier periods.

Argon Extreme Intel Core i3 540 3.06GHz


ALAN SMITH 2011-01-25

4.4ghz - nice !

bought this but due to space limitations of the case I am using (Silverstone SG03-B which is really tiny) I had to use the standard intel cooler - I was expecting it!. Anyway even with the intel cooler it would clock automatically via the cool auto overclock option in the bios to 4.4ghz! I settled for 3.68ghz with only 1.160v. Anything higher in my limited case meant higher voltages and over 72 degrees in Prime95. Still well happy for such a cheap bargain and have found it is my graphics card gtx280 that is holding back turning every option to highest in split second (as i tried it at 4.2ghz for 5 minutes and no increase in frame rate). if you have a big case and use the supplied cooler you will easily be able to run at the 4.4ghz.

4.4Ghz overclock Bundle

This is a great bundle, I have recently bought one and fitted it into a brand new case. Even my wife is impressed by the fact that it's so much quicker than the 3.1Ghz semperon system we were running and the 3.2Ghz dual core intel rig I use at work. I have to say it's rock solid if running a little hot 37-45C. The Venom heatsink is enormous so check the case dimensions as there's mm to spare against my side case fans but except under all but extreme load is quite quiet. Get the recommended Corsair power supply as I had problems with my first one. Now I have a 650W Corsair everything just works!
This is what I envisioned when I first bought a PC after my old Amiga years ago having seen the lightning that was a mates Amiga fitted with SCSI disks this really just works. Great turn around on a bank holiday order too.
