Did small check and it seems that it saves you over £20 quid when buying separately(used different online shops to get cheapest price).
Quite a deal for those who want.
Sending heat now.

Would love to have this set up

Pretty good price for a very nice high-end set up, although you'd probably want to invest in a more substantial cooler than the Hyper if you were really going to push the overclock.

I bought 2600k £270
P67 Mobo £86
Cooler Master £22

Total £378

The cooler should be fine Sandy bridge runs very very cool even overclocked

Your list does not include RAM so it looks super cheap.

Does the Asus P8P67 Pro come with the front USB 3 box.. or is it only the delux?

If only on delux, anyone know where to get the front box, and how much it's likely to cost?

Just bought the 2600K and P8P67 Pro motherboard combo deal for £370, and the Corsair Vengeance RAM for £90.

I agree, apart from for noise reduction I can see little point not just using the stock cooler.

I saw a review of one of the top watercooling kits currently recommenended and the difference was minimul even overclocked and loaded.

Just a shame its from Scan.

So would I

If it's any consolation, the Sandy Bridge owners will be equally upset when the next platform is released lol.

i think most gamers would be better off saving some money and buying the i5 and possibly buying cheaper ram as it makes little difference in games.

Edited by: "wat" 21st Jan 2011

hmmm i have an X2 4200+ do you think i will see much benefit from this?






only joking, hot deal, tempted myself but really need to wait till i recover from xmas. Also i think the sandybridge I5 will prolly do me.

Where did you find the ram for £90? it is £116 on Scan's site.

Edit:

My mistake it's £95, I was looking at a higher speed version

Just a shame its from Scan.

why? never had an issue with them always polite and helpful and i like u can call them tecchys and they will help u find parts to your budget they have saved me cash in the past with recommendations on parts they have used or know well off to me thats good service, u join av forums u get cheap delivery too so u must have just bad luck with them.

i have this exact setup from scan.. the stock cooler runs very cool and quiet.. 35c on normal.. you don't really need a new cooler

however it took me forever to get the ddr3 configure on the p8p67 motherboard ..

there is a known issue with this motherboard (won't post or double posts) - it is linked to the ram recognition problem..

there is a fix for it (you have to reset the 'clea rtc' jumper) and maybe also update the bios.)

go to the official asus forum and you will know what i mean..

other than that i am happy with the board..

also be aware of three things:

- the sata connectors are aligned off the end of the board and face parrallel to the board so if you have a tight mediacenter case like mine then you might struggle to fit the sata lead..

- you might need to download the asus utility from asus directly because the cd rom supplied doesn't work with windows 7 64bit

- like a lot of these 1155 boards there are no ide slots

Exactly my words. Buying i5-2500k will save you nearly £100 so you can spend them on better VGA or 2x PNY GTX 460 1GB (in SLI) and you will get much more FPS in games than with i7 and single VGA.
You can get PNY GTX 460 1GB for £124.30 here : crescentelectronics.co.uk/pny…a8e

Im voting cold as the asus pro board has many problems with the bios and even the bios which was released last night is still causing more problems.
Plus the cooler is pretty crap i know i got one. If you can put up with the problems then a good buy.

My friend bought these exact same components just last week from Scan and he's just told me that it came to £538. So therefore this is saving you nearly £60 doing it this way!

He wasn't best pleased!!

I just spent over £500 with them on a bundle and various items. the CPU retail was out of stock, I asked if I could swap to the OEM, they said yes and refunded me the difference even though I was already saving £50 by buying a bundle. Service was 1st class, delivery and communicaton was 1st class.

I couldnt fault them

I recommend people pay the difference and 'upgrade' to the Asaka Venom CPU Cooler instead as it's a much better match and more efficient and quieter than the Hyper 212 Plus with this board and CPU combination.

ill stick with my core 2 duo. an enjoy life with that money hot though

scan, faulty goods can you say credit note

Don't forget, OEM CPUs have 1 year warranty whereas the RETAIL boxed CPUs have a 3 year warranty!

Just had an email from Scan with a similar offer:

This is from their Scanshot promotions and I think you need to purchase it directly from the direct link contained in the email (deal is not on the site).

If anybody wants a copy of the email forwarded just PM me.

I'm looking for a entire new set-up to replace my old P4 2.8... Shame I'd need to also get a Case/PSU and Graphics card as well (seeing as the "P" mobos allow o/clocking but don't allow access to the Integrated Graphics capabilities on the CPUs)...

Also, thanks to those who are mentioning the issues the P8P67 mobos are having - I have been mentally jumping between these and the GigaByte GA67 range...

...I've been scouring the Scan site for a whole week - trying to "construct" a great "for-the-next-5+years" system (for the best price I can) and I'm now having dreams of mobos and CPUs - aarrrggghhh!!

Arrgh! Having ben put off overclocked mobo bundles by someone on here I thought i'd get individual components and try a build myself. And now I've been reminded of the terrors even 'techies' face with a new build.

Whimper.

when exactly does today only end? I've been caught by this before..at sales desk bought a today only item ..only to be told its not on today only anymore...so bought full price...then rechecked today only and there is was...wait in queue go back to counter ..explain it all and get refund for whole amount and then re buy at today only price.

Ends on Monday approx 1pm

Another good offer with the Standard XMS 4Gb in place of the Vengeance 8Gb RAM which, let's face it, will be enough for most people.

Only factor that would put me off there is the growing recommendation to stick to 1.5v RAM for SB setups which would favour the Vengeance over the XMS, which needs 1.65v to run at 12800mhz.
Edited by: "marktime" 21st Jan 2011

The XMS3 runs fine at 1.5v and even lower so don't worry about that

The only concern you should have is chosing a CPU cooler that doesn't overhang 2 memory slots so you can't get to your RAM unless you remove your heatsink first!!!

I couldn't get the XMS 4Gb kit I recently got to run on a i5 760/P55 setup running at 1.5v @ 12800 so I wouldn't be so sure.

marktime - I am sure as I've seen it!

Fair enough, possibly I got a duff kit but it definitely crashed out under load @ 1.5v even though it would run completely stable if you didn't push it.

mumjit

ass I've seen it



Really

I think I will buy the components separately and choose my own cooler, this is a good deal though.

would like a new pc, but my intel q6600 is still soo fast cant justify getting a new one

I've been holding off upgrading my old Pentium 4 3.4GHz system for a long long time as everything still 'worked' on it and I had no real reason to spend the best part of a grand on a total system upgrade. After reading about and researching for hours the speed increases the new Sandy Bridge CPU's offer I think now is the time to do it! Especially as most (if not all) new games are now not playable on my old Radeon 3850 AGP video card so I'm jumping in and upgrading now as whenen n youbreak down the individual prices of the components this seems like a good deal

@mumjit

to be honest it's overspecced for most people.

There's not much difference between the i5 2500k and the i7 in most apps and 8gb of RAM is overkill for most people, you be better spending less on these two components and more in areas you'll really notice the difference like the gfx card or an ssd.

SaltyCDogg - I hear what your saying mate - I'm in 2 minds whether to go for the i5 or the i7 as there's £75 difference in price. I guess I'm just after a system to last me a few years as it's been nearly 10 years since I last built a totally new system from scratch for myself so I'm expecting to pay for 'the best' and the reasoning is that I wan't it to be a capable system for a few years without having to constantly dip my hand in my pocket for better components.

@mumjit
Re i5 v i7. I wrestled with that one and went i5, most current software has trouble using 4 cores without the hyperthreading. But if you upgrade only every 4 years or so then i7 may pay off in the long run. It was 4 years since I bought my core2duo and it's still fine for gaming.
