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.

Great Bundle!

Order this bundle yesterday dinner and arrived today, yet again another first class service from Overclockers and DPD.

30 mins building my new machine, board and processor and ram all fired up with no problems, processor clocked in at 4.39ghz and all i can say is it flies!! very pleased with choice, would highly recommend this bundle.

Mark 2011-07-21

Highly Recommended

I ordered this bundle based on the reviews and because I was working to a budget. It arrived the next day and everything works perfectly, 30 degrees on idle, yet to try any games but I have every faith in this build. Very good service, thank you Overclockers!

note: the cpu fan already has thermal paste applied on it

All installed OK but got a disk read error. Oh - NO RAID. Not a problem I suppose unless you have RAID. I had a RAID 0 set-up with an IP35 MB from ABIT. The board went and I decided to buy this bundle. The H55 Intel cheap-set does not have a RAID controller. This, I think, should be made clear. RAID is not mentioned even on GB website. I suppose I might have found this out but I assumed that most decent boards would support RAID. Now I will have to buy a new HD and reinstall the OS.

Brilliant, fantastic, excellent . . . really really pleased. Ordered yesterday, it came today, installed and running, with the Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5850 and Corsair Enthusiast Series TX 650W. Thank you to the Overclocker's Team and Thanks to the people who wrote the reviews I read before buying :-)

RichB 2011-06-28

great value for money

Had to buy a new system fast on a budget after a cpu and motherboard burn out.
This bundle and overclockers are awsome ! installed in 30 mins no problems at all. thanks

Scott 2011-06-23


Ordered this on Thursday. Turned up next day. Processor came in at 4.3GHZ, worked fine with my native OS so no re installing either, (bare in mind that my previous MOBO was also a Gigabyte). A simply outstanding package value and performance wise.

If you looking for a graphics card for this I'd recommend the 5850 OCUK exclusive Sapphire model at around

Richard 2011-06-20


Ordered 11:40am collected at 2:40.
Overclocked out of the box at 4.39Ghz. Couldn't ask for anymore tbh.
Highly recommended!

i3 Bundle

Excellent performance really pleased with all aspects. Was concened about how difficult to install, but had no problems.1hour all done.

Michael Bowley 2011-01-07

Great bundle!

I ordered this bundle and it arrived 2 days later. For some reason the processor isn't advertised 540 but earlier version, 530. Nevertheless, to compensate that, it came overclocked to 4.2 GHz, so can't really complain here :) On first power up, I noticed that the fan on the heat sink was dead, so emailed Overclockers, which no problem issued me with the RMA number, which I won't use as now the CPU runs on Corsair H70 water cooler and it's brilliant.

Thanks Overclockers for very good service and willingness to resolve issues in a very timely manner. Overall I recommend this bundle whole heartedly, saves lot's of work and is might powerful. 5 solid stars.

Fantasic Bundle - Hassle Free

Order on 12th at 12:30 and arrived the next day by 11:30. Great service !

Great upgrade. it's near silent when running under load.

PCMark score of 6600 ( old system was 3900 )

Very stable overclock. Very good value for the price.

Just need a new graphics card and a SSD now.

Jeff 2010-08-10

Amazing System

This is the first item I have ever bought from overclockers. I have to say it does what it says on the tin. And does go like stink at 4.o Ghz.

I have had a couple of niggles, on board graphics kept hanging after the Intel HD driver was loaded, locking the machine up.
Also having issues with the legacy serial.
These are probably to do with the overclocking so I am living with that.
The graphics issue was resolved by buying a new card. As for the serial, well still trying to resolve that one.

Saying that, it is a solid upgrade and has got me back up to date with hardware and now Windows 7 Ultimate.

OC have got them selves in potion where I expect the best from them, again they deliver!

StuFisH 2010-07-08

Amazing product amazing service

Great products steady as rock! Fast as hell and flys through everything.

However I did manage to lose my bios settings (therefore the overclock) but the guys here helped me out returning it to normal!!

Great product great service!!!

Dan 2010-07-08


Bought this, had it running 24 hours core temp tells me :

High core 1: 69oC
high core 2: 68oC
low core 1: 33oC
low core 2: 34oC

But we are in the middle of a few really hot days down here in Kent. Plus this is being typed as im running norton ghost, transcoding an HD video, and copying 30gb to my NAS drive.

Really shines as a powerful pc, havent got my 5770 yet so can't say if its good for games yet.

All sitting in an antec 300 case, Really quiet but will upgrade to H50 Corsair watercooler in future, to get even more out of this system!!!

10/10 for bang for your buck

Mike K 2010-06-25


only going to say one thing about this product. AMAZING ... no more needs to be said

Tom Campion 2010-05-26

The best budget pre-overclocked bang-for

This bundle is a quick and easy upgrade to a fast yet affordable PC. I am soo happy with my purchase not only is it 100% stable, with my 9800GT crysis runs at 45fps at 1680x1050. Couldn't be any more happier. Thanks OcUK!

Dan 2010-04-01

With Corsair Liquid cooling

Very impressed for the money.Liquid cooling a little tricky and make sure you give the pump it's own molex and no piggybacking,ignore the bit where it says connect pump power to mobo as there's not enough power.Idle 30c Bad Company 2 37c.....
OC did it again! ;)

Stew 2010-03-30

Does what it says on the tin

Had this just over a week now and its been rock solid, very fast and done all Ive wanted it to do. Mines running hot (40 idle 75 load) compared to some other examples but the base of the cooler isnt very flat at all....

Overall its awesome but I would go for a different cooler if possible.

Ed 2010-03-30

Great Performance

I have had this bundle for a couple weeks now, cant realy complain. it does all i need it to do and more with ease. there was a little oversight with the corsair water cooling (H50) package, the way to connect the pump doesnt work(there isnt enough current on the mobo). after using a molex to 3pin adapter it worked perfectly. cpu temps bearly reach 30'c.
Great service from overclockers, although i live in malta it arrived within 4 days. 5/5

Lee 2010-03-25

Great bundle

Had this a week now and cant explain how impressed i am. I use this machine for Gaming and Producing music, this bundle produces more than enough power to multitask all my applications and most importantly it does it quickly. Brought a ATI 5770 card with this and it EATS Crysis Warhead up. As far as i am concerend this is the Best for performance/cost ratio bundle on here and am really happy with the service i had from OC. 5/5. The processor temps are perfect doesent run hot at all.
