    Representing the cream of the crop of today's bleeding edge performance hardware, OcUK's 'Extreme Bundles' are selected to satisfy the needs of the most demanding enthusiast.

    OcUK Overclocked Bundles feature carefully selected components tested to assure compatability & stability, guaranteeing the integrity of the overclock.

    We worry about the fiddling and tweaking, you just enjoy the performance.

    This bundle ships pre-built and pre-overclocked direct from our Technical Department. All you need to do is attach the CPU cooler and power it up.

    - Maximum Speed
    - Maximum Stability
    - Maximum Compatibility
    - Maximum Overclocking

    This Bundle contains the following components:

    1 X Intel Core i3 530 2.93GHz Clarkdale overclocked to 4.20GHz!
    1 X Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H Intel H55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 Motherboard
    1 X Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit
    1 X Prolimatech Megahalems Performance CPU Cooler (Socket 775/1366)
    1 X Akasa AK-FN057 Apache Super Silent 120mm Fan - 4 Pin PWM

    Note - All Bundles are built and installed on demand and usually ship within 48 hours of the order being placed. During exceptionally busy periods this time can increase by 48 hours.

    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.

    Note - The bundle operates above manufacturer specifications, as such it requires a quality power supply to operate with guaranteed stability. OcUK recommend a quality brand PSU for use with all our bundles such as the Corsair TX & HX range.

    Note - 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.

    Only £370.00 inc VAT.

    How do you mean? As in a stable overclock that we could push out reliably or just us pushing as far as we can for the sake of it?

    Personally i've never had to clock one lol more of a i5/i7 man but mainly because i've never had a i3 lol. I think the guys in tech had 4.5Ghz though on water once.

    4.2GHz though is the best we'll ever attain on air though

    Is the memory running at around 1520-1530mhz, just wondering if you have managed to get the full 1600mhz out of the memory.

    wow 5ghz on an i5 is amazing.

    I hear AMD's get higher OC's though, that true?
