The processor is a vital component in every PC and laptop – if you don't have one, your device just won't work.
It pays to give some thought to the processor you choose, too, because a poor chip will hinder every single aspect of your machine, while a high-quality chip could take your gaming, work and daily computing to the next level.
We've got a guide to the nuts and bolts of these crucial components, but that's not all. We've chosen our favourites from Intel's new Kaby Lake range to suit every budget and a whole range of computing tasks, from gaming to graphic design, and we've also explained how the Overclockers UK touch can result in faster, safer and better PCs.
Intel 7th Generation CPUs are now available to buy and we all know these have been highly awaited processors. To celebrate this launch, we are offering FREE Next Day delivery to the UK mainland on all baskets that include a retail i7 7700K (£349.99~) or an i5 7600K (£239.99~) processor!
To coincide with the launch of Z270, we are also refreshing their system range, including the award winning Titan Bayonet, this has been upgraded to the latest 7th Generation Intel i5 7600K overclocked all the way to 4.7GHz combined with the Asus Z270-K meaning that it is up to date with the latest technologies giving maximum performance. The all-new Titan Osprey focuses on AMD CrossFire setups with the option of added uncompromised PCIe NVMe storage thanks to the extra four PCIe lanes provided by Kaby Lake CPUs, the i5 processor is overclocked to 4.9GHz. The Titan Gladius focuses on the other side of the fence, equipping NVIDIA SLI setups – again with the added option of PCIe NVMe storage, and an i7 7700k overclocked to 4.8GHz.
