Aria.co.uk Gladiator 1155 i5 4.4GHz Bundle
Naturally the Gladiator only provides the underpinnings of a system. For the rest we're using our standard bench rig which gives a Test Setup of the following :
Aria Gladiator B3 comprising
Core i5 2500K @ 4.4 GHz
4GB Mushkin Silverline 1333MHz
MSI P67A-G45 and
Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Cooler.
EVGA GTX570 with ForceWare 270.61 Drivers
Be Quiet Dark Power Pro
Samsung Spinpoint F1
Windows 7 x64
As this is a pre-overclocked bundle we'll keep to the system as it arrives.
Here you can see Aria have pushed the Core i5 2500K to a decent 4.4 GHz @ 1.312v. This is a good figure as its a speed that pretty much every 2500K on the planet will happily obtain and yet doesn't push it so far that there is potential for a CPU to not reach that speed, nor that you need so much voltage than you'd have to change the cooler out for a higher performing model.
It's very much the sweet spot.
The Mushkin Silverline RAM is as advertised, although this particular kit is running at 25 tRAS rather than the 24 tRAS it advertises. You wont notice the difference in usage so it's nothing of consequence.
