Aria Gladiator Sparta i5 Nano Overclocked Bundle Review

PC Mark 8

PC Mark 8 is still the new kit on the block and so we've had very little testing with it. So far only the Aria overclocked bundle we're reviewing today and the Cyberpower Infinity Achilles GT have been run through it. Given the Cyberpower came with a heavily overclocked i7-4770K and a nVidia GTX780, then the Sparta Nano bundle is happily giving it a run for it's money. Certainly in your every day tasks it's up to the job.

 

CineBench R11.5

The last of our system based tests, CineBench is naturally lessened by the loss of the hyperthreading. For CPU intensive tasks the benefits of hyperthreading can't really be overstated, but the Sparta Nano makes a good fist of things, being only half a point behind a stock i7-4770K. On the plus side it attained 126FPS in the OpenGL test, which is one of the highest results we've seen.

Based upon the Core i5-4670K, the Aria Gladiator Sparta i5 Nano bundle is pre-built and pre-overclocked. Worthy of a purchase?

To be honest it's not that good of a price tag there. I got a 4770k with a sabertooth, ripjaws, ssd and an h100i and cost me 780. The difference is that It didn't come already overclocked but..

I agree but if you just buy an i7, a g1 killer m5, ram and a decent cooler the price will be like 570-580. Isn't the 4770k worth the extra 70-80?

That's why we rated it so highly on price. Not only is it a relatively small price over a self build, you're guaranteed the overclock.

Regular forum members will know how variable the Haswell CPUs are at the moment. It's worth the extra to be certain of a good'un, before you factor in the plug and play convenience

i7 not necessary for gaming really, speaking from experience. Great price for a great bit of kit, and it doesn't hurt that it actually looks good, too. Great review!
