Aria claim cheapest 1155 CPU prices in the UK

"Aria claim the cheapest 1155 CPU prices in the UK. Not everyone seems to be happy about it though...."

Its not very often you will get me writing a news article, but ears are burning all over the industry tonight and it seems some are talking about, some whinging, but most crying about Aria taking pre-orders on the new Sandy Bridge CPU's.

A certain retailer has put so many hours into trying to get Aria to take their pre-orders down its quite shocking. I could not quite understand why until I did a little digging. It seems Aria have gone live with significantly lower prices than the other overlyshocking retailer and it seems they are doing everything they possibly can to try and stop you all finding out about it.

I'm sure if this was Apple or Microsoft the Office of Fair Trading would have be having a field day. I'm always one for a good row and fighting the corner for the under dog so I thought all the OC3D readers would find these prices and links very helpful when planning your Sandy Bridge purchases.

2600k £251.99 - £20 cheaper

2500k £172.20 - £15 Cheaper

Prices were correct as of 05/01/2011 but we expect the said retailer thats been moaning to drop their prices quite rapidly in line with Aria's prices, hey if we can save you 20 quid then it was worth the hassle!

Its also worth noting that despite the rumors that the overlyshocking retailer is trying to start all Aria's 1155 CPU's and P67 based motherboards will come with the full retailer and manufacturer warranty. Trying to trick people into thinking they wouldn't is yet another underhanded tactic they have tried to stop people taking the plunge and pre-ordering the cheaper products.

For those of you out there looking at Sandy Bridge as a viable upgrade but slightly nervous about the new way of overclocking, or even just overclocking in general then the Gladiator Pre-Overclocked Bundles could be right up your street. OC3D have used a selection of these bundles recently and are amazing value but still come with a solid 12 month rtb warranty.

Ok so i have overclocked my nvidia gtx 260 x2 to 702 core clock each, and i am running with 6g of ram and core i7 920@3.50. So i thought i might be able to run crysis at max res and enthusiast setting at around 30 fps, but for some reason im only getting 17 fps, and when i set everything to gamer im only getting 32 fps, i checked the core clock usage on the msi overcklocking software whil i play and it says im only using 400 instead of 702, also it shows that im using half the shaders clock and memory clock. I THOUGH I WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO PLAY CRYSIS AT 30 FPS BUT FOR SOME REASON I CANT, PEOPLE PLEASE HELP ME IM NOOB TO OVERCLOCKING!!!! THANKS :D
