Supplied as a complete kit this system has the performance to rival ones costing nearly twice the price due to OcUK's expert engineers pre-overclocking this system to safe and reliable settings for a huge performance boost.

Note - If you select the 4GB Memory Upgrade option then the CPU overclock is reduced to 3.1GHz - 3.2GHz region to maintain stability with all four memory banks filled.

Why cold? Is there a better deal out there?

All the reviews I've seen give it 5 stars so I'm puzzled.

Please can you leave an explanation if you are voting the deal cold.

Thank you.

That's an easy answer, if it's not a £300 Dell machine most of the "deal hunters" round these parts aren't interested. No accounting for taste :thumbsup:

That and most of the people who would be interested in that kind of spec machine build their own...
#3
I reckon this is a pretty good deal for the money...and you're correct megalomaniac...sheep and dell go hand in hand :giggle:
#4
It's a good deal, but for most people a little OTT, which is why you are getting the cold votes., I added heat for my personal opinion, not that it counts beacause...baaaaaaa

oh yeah, dell sheep, my Inspiron arrived today.
#5
Thanks for the constructive feedback. I was hoping to get a bit of a steer on making the purchase because it's a great deal of money to fork out. So even if folk vote cold, it would be great to know why.

I resisted the Dell Laptop. Got one for the Mrs though.

Figured I want to get hold of something future proof. Could spend £500 now and not get state of the art and spend another £500 in a couple of years and still not get state of the art or fork out £1000 now and have state of the art for a couple of years and no need to upgrade for ages.

Any constructive advice would be appreciated.

Wonder if Mike has any thoughts or ideas. I've seen a few of his posts and they look pretty spot on!

This isn't a proprietary OEM machine ala DELL, so pretty much anyone could bolt this together for less than £950 by buying the same components from the same site (yes i did check the prices).

If you aren't up to building your own machine then yes this is a good buy. Otherwise save yourself £200 and build it yourself !

Personal advice is that the PSU is a little over specc'd compared with only having a single 500Gb ! drive. I'd downsize the PSU to 700w-800w and get a second HD.
I just got the same case delivered yesterday but not had a chance to build it yet - looks just the job.

Not voted hot or cold.
#7
Just spotted No Operating System, shipping £12.95 plus VAT...I would suggest looking at Chill Blast, I think at this rate there are some better deals to be had......do they supply a warranty??
#8
Overclockers do not sell "systems" even though they call them that on their site. I recommended an OCUK system to a friend a couple of years ago. When it arrived, the screen would blank out every 20-30 minutes and require a reboot. Overclockers refused to have anything to do with it, saying that they just sold components and had merely put them together for our convenience.

Avoid!
#9
Might be a good deal to some granted.

I wouldnt pay this kinda money for the best PC on the planet myself, regardless of how good the spec is!

As someone else already said, buy the bits & build it yourself :thumbsup:
#10
Overclockers have a legendarily bad reputation for customer services.

This is about twice the price of this system:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/135767/dell-xps-420-desktop-base-unit-quad/
Which (aside from the GC being a GTX not a GT) is basically the same base spec.

You should be getting a Crossfire/SLI system for that sort of price I think.
#11
I think I might just try my hand a building it myself but it's seriously daunting as I haven't been near building a PC for years. Last time almost gave me a heart attack! Three nights with no sleep rebuilding a machine that had all my data on it and a serious deadline to meet! I met the deadline but swore I would avoid getting on my knees and beging a dead PC to come back to life! Now I back-up my back-ups. Lesson learned...
#12
Thanks for the feedback. Looks like this is not the amazingly hot deal I thought it was.

Please keep your eyes open for a highend machine deal and post it or let me know.

Thanks again

Who knows, I've posted 10% off deals before for small sites and got "cold" rating. I mean 10% off for nothing, if you don't want to buy anything from the site, sure.

I think the sad thing is that this site is used by far to many people who not only want something for nothing. They want 10 of them to make a profit on ebay. It's certainly gone that way in the 3 years I've been using the site.

And the Dell system you quoted includes the OS. Can you overclock the Dell system, though? They lock down the bios on most of their systems.
I haven't had much to do with overclockers, but they must be seriously bad to have gained the reputation that they have.

Well dont bother is my opinion. 8800GTX=fail as your paying for it, an overclocked 8800GT beats in in alot of results(about a £175 for a decent overclocked one, and the gtx is like 300-370). That quad core is not worth it, the new line of quad cores are out and are much better at everything, heat/power usage/performance etc, and cheaper. At current timeing the quad cores are not worth getting as they arent used by many things(game wise only crysis and supreme commander can use, crysis results are non exsistent). Ram, its good ram but ram isnt a botle neck anymore, graphics is. Now dont think im trying to bash this deal as its ok for some1 with money and who wants the best NOW, otherwise, build yourself a better system(As iam doing in feb) or buy a cheaper one, wait till mid this year and youll see the new nvidia 9series which might stop crysis laughing at it.


Id recommend any1 who wants to try building a system google for a decent building guide, its simple(seriously, just time consuming). All there is too it is pluging bits in the right place, only trouble i get is with the usb then i have the look in the manual for that(voltages etc,easy when lookin at it though).

voted,warm as its ok but not worth it now(my guess is they are selling it off for new tech?).

Only the high end 45nm Quads are out at the moment ($1,000); the cheaper ones are due sometime Q1 and were delayed due to a problem.

I heard they were delayed due to no competition ! AMD not competing with current C2D so holding back release.

Try the Dell Outlet:

I got an XPS 710 H2C QX6700 overclocked to 3.2 Ghz, 1 TB HD, 2 GB, 2 x 768MB 8800 GTXs, soundblaster, etc for £50 more about 5 months ago. Nothing's been showing on the website in the last couple of months though

PS runs Crysis fine at full detail settings (unfortunately using a 720p TV so can't comment at higher resolutions)

Strangely Bioshock doesn't run as smoothly (and I use XP with the latest drivers before anyone asks). And it weighs a tonne (or just over 30kg) which is a pain as I recently moved.

I heard the same speculation but I don’t buy into at all and as far as I remember Intel has formally announced a ‘potential bug’ under certain situations which his why the release has been delayed so they can fix it.
Otherwise why would Intel let their 45nm factory(ies) stand idle! It’s not as if they’ll any trouble selling their 65nm CPUs as most people don’t have a clue what they are getting in their Dells etc.
#21
This is a far better deal from overclockers here:
https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=FS-048-OK&groupid=43&catid=967&subcat=

leaves you £300+ to pick a tft monitor or 32" lcd of your choice.

And to be honest that story about the new quads is a lot of garbage as AMD have not been able to hold a candle to Intel since the release of the core 2 duo's - so why would they even bother releasing the new 45nm dual cores as AMD cannot even compete with the old chips.
#22
Thanks. This kind of information is priceless!

I work in graphics and my old machine is giving up the ghost. Everything is showing its age and it falls over or powers out at least twice a day now. All backed up though. It's on almost 24/7 and in use almost as much.

I've set aside a sizeable stack. Just of £1000+ to get a new machine. So any more advice would be more than welcome.
