- Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping (SLBEJ) 2.66Ghz Overclocked to 3.66GHz!
- Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Intel X58 (Socket 1366) PCI-Express DDR3 Motherboard
- OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C8 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel

Now this is on special price this week with almost £200 off. If you were to buy the components separately from overclockers it would come to:

- Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping (SLBEJ) 2.66Ghz Overclocked to 3.66GHz! 227.99
- Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Intel X58 (Socket 1366) PCI-Express DDR3 Motherboard 211.99
- OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C8 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel 70.99

807.89

So you are paying a premium of £88.60 to have it built, over clocked to 3.66GHz and also to have the 1yr onsite collection and return. You may be able to find some of the parts cheaper elsewhere on line, i had a quick look and didnt find many.

There is no OS included so make sure you add that 64 bit OS cost in - ubuntu (and other flavours of linux free).

Shipping costs are about £10

What if you were to buy the components from a company who aren't notorious for overpricing though?
#2
as mentioned in the post. i had a quick look at the price of the components on other sites and the biggest difference i found was £14 for the mobo. £197 at novatech as compared to £211 here.

if you can find cheaper please let me know before i buy this

is not overclocked but you can overclock it yourself and i chosen a water cooling kit instead of an air cooler.

You may be able to save an extra £30 on components by shopping around, but you won't save much more than that. Personally I think the OCUK systems are decent value when on offer. They have chosen the best component combo for you, pushed it to a sensible limit and stuck a warranty on there for your peace of mind. I tend to build mine for myself as I am a fairly confident modder, but it is a gamble when you do that.

My past 6 systems have all been built to over clock, out of those two have had CPU's with supposedly excellent overclocking potential that haven't had more than 10% in them. I have also had a couple of faulty components that have been near impossible to locate when not having a compatible spare in the bits box for testing. If I didn't have my levels of experience, patience and access to alternative components I reckon the OCUK systems would be my first port of call.

What I would say though is that this isn't the best offer I have seen them put up, if you are in a rush then it is OK, but they sometimes do ones that are pretty much at component cost. I would also ask what you are using the system for as it is massively powerful (and accordingly expensive). If it is for gaming then you should up the graphics to a Radeon 4890 as a minimum. If it is for the internet and office tasks then you have more money than sense :)

What is better about that? £10 cheaper yes but:
1. It's not guaranteed to overclock (or warranted for use like that),
2. Some worse components such as much worse PSU, worse RAM (I have had bad experience of Corsair, OCZ have been great every time)
3. The Watercooling on it is rubbish, reviews I read reckon next to no benefit over decent air cooler.

the main use is to deal with large ARW files (sony's version of RAW files) - it took 5 hours on a x2 5600 to convert 346 to jpg. Editing video files etc from video camera's and also browsing hotukdeals!

the big benefit as i saw on this one was that it was already OC'd - i ahve been known to fry an amd 2400 previously by OCing too much

the psu isnt alot worse but i do admit its not as great as corsair. as for the water cooling kit chosen there are plenty of good reviews if u google e.g.http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/coolit_dominoalc/5.htm my dad had an ocz ram that failed and the only way to rma ocz is to go on the forum on the other hand they do offer lifetime warranty. i on ther hand have had no problems with corsair in my opinion ocz and corsair are just as good as each other in ram. Last of all ony the cpu on the overclockers machine is overlocked.

also couldnt find anywhere that this is the D0 stepping of the i7, which is supposed to make a big difference

I would always advise being careful with any OC machine for that kind of work. I think you are probably going down the right lines then as you will probably be 100% stressing the CPU regularly so 12 month warranty and OCed is a good deal.

With OCUK offering a range of OCed machines for that core, they will be alotting them based on comfortably running at a given spec. Given the OC'ed machines range from 3.4Ghz to 4.0Ghz this is clearly a mid performing part. If you start fresh who know whether you will do better or worse.

Also consider upping to 12GB RAM for that type of work (only about £70)
