This is more of a discussion, really want to know the ramifications of this bundle, whether it's worth buying at the price, any flaws in the components?

It is a good CPU but the motherboard is really cheap, you could get the parts cheaper than this separately.

I would get the i5 4570k instead and get a better higher quality motherboard.

A £270 processor with a £50 motherboard seems like a bit of a mix match to me.
You can the parts cheaper from the likes of Ebuyer and Scan.

Such a waste of money pairing a i7-4770k with a H81 motherboard, this is an idiot's bundle. Especially as you can buy the two components separately for less anyway.

You want a Z87 motherboard for a 'k' processor, not a budget H81.

they're probably having problems getting rid of the board on its own, thats why they offer the deal

Forgot to ask about cooling, what sort of system is best and at what price?

Depends what processor you have and how much you want to overclock. With a Haswell 'k' processor on a Z87 motherboard it will overclock as much as you can keep it cool.

If you have a more basic processor or are not interested in overclocking then a basic air cooler like the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 is fine. The stock cooler will even do the job, that is why it's included in the retail kit after all.

Most of the massive coolers and proper water cooling setups are there for looks as much as the cooling, if not more. Also extreme overclocking doesn't add much performance and reduces the life of components so unless you're into it there's no point doing it.
