I'd say an i3 would do 4.5 with stock cooler if you had some amazing air flow... probs idle at 40-50 and load 68-79 ish... lol

would be funny if that tested true... oh well when i get it maybe i can find out!

Hey everyone, I see there are actually two bundles for the I3 540 on aria:

The reviewed one:

• Intel® Core™ i3-540 Overclocked @ 4.20GHz - Dual Core CPU

• 4GB Mushkin Silverline 1333MHz 9-9-9-24

• MSI H55M-ED55 Micro-ATX Motherboard

• Coolermaster Hyper TX3 CPU Cooler

• Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

• Pre-Assembled & Tested

• 1 Years Warranty

• No Operating System

And this one:

• Intel® Core™ i3-540 Overclocked @ 4.30GHz - Dual Core CPU

• Mushkin 4GB (2x2G DDR3 1600MHz 8-8-8-24 Blackline - 996744

• Gigabyte GA-H55M-USB3 Intel H55 DDR3 Motherboard

• Gelid Tranquillo CPU Cooler

• Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

• Pre-Assembled & Tested

• 1 Years Warranty

• No Operating System

First one is £220 and second one is £280, never heard of a gelid cooler though any comments?. And just out of interest is the extra £50 worth paying?

yeah i was wondering that, it will depend on how much i get for xmas... get paid this month 300 ish so... could buy it... but would then need to buy a psu if i want to use it before the end of january as my psu is 400 watts and sucks.... so i would need to buy a 4 pin power adapter which would cost £7 including postage which tbh is a waste. I'd also rather use new parts with new psu not risking the fact that the psu is dell and is over 6 years old.

***EDIT****

these bundle deals are sick! Aria provide much better performance for the price compared to competitors like overclockers....
