OcUK Intel Core i5 750 Overclocked Bundle

Testbed, Temperatures & Stability

Our testing was carried out with the following equipment
Intel Core i5 750 Processor @ 3.60GHz 1.3425V
Asus P7P55D P55 ATX Motherboard @ 172BCLK
4GB Corsair XMS3 PC3-12800 @ 1720MHz
Zalman CNPS10X QUIET CPU Cooler
Samsung Spinpoint F1 320GB SATA II Hard Disk Drive
LG 22x DVD+/-RW SATA Optical Drive
nVidia GeForce 8800GT 512mb GDDR3
OCZ stealthXstream 500W ATX 2.0 Power Supply Unit
Windows Vista Home Premium x64 SP1
Temperatures & Stability
As a factory overclocked bundle, it must be stable straight out of the box and be able to stand the test of time throughout it’s lifespan. Our testing was carried out with an ambient temperature of 22*c. Using OCCT’s LinPack Test, we left our overclocked processor to run for no less than 16 hours. As expected, the bundle passed with flying colours.
The Zalman CNPS10X cooler appears to be more than adequate at cooling the Core i5 750 processor with peak temperatures of 66*c. When you consider that the cooler uses a fan that operates at speeds of 1500RPM and lower, the result is quite impressive. It should be mentioned however that further overclocking could well be restricted as additional voltage increases will take processor temperatures into somewhat uncomfortable realms.

Nice work there! Good to see the reaction from Ocuk coming back positive too.

Good they also pre loaded the bios settings and saved them. Ok the time and effort required involved to get a stable, assured overclock and one they will back up with a warranty deserves a premium to be paid and obviously this will affect profit margins but once this has been achieved, flash the bios off a USB stick and jobs done.

Well done Ocuk I say. ( never thought I hear myself say that! How times change )Quote

I was always told there were 10 types of people in the world and neither think the joke about binary is funny

Good to see Overclockers responding so fast.

That looks very interesting. I would love to buy such a setup but that cooler is huge. I have an AKASA EVO on my CPU at the moment and I had to take the side fan off my case for the cooler to fit. That cooler with that bundle looks like its even bigger so it might not fit in my case. Still I might consider buying such a bundle from them some time next year.Quote
