Intel’s Haswell processors have presented us with arguably some of the biggest variations in air-cooled overclocking ability that we have seen from the company’s mainstream and high-end processors since the pre-Nehalem era. With that in mind, there’s a clear justification to opting for pre-overclocked bundles sold by retailers. Is Aria’s 4.40GHz i5 4670K-equipped Gladiator Sparta bundle a good choice?
Based around the latest fan-favourite model from Intel’s mainstream processor line-up, the multiplier-unlocked Core i5 4670K, Aria’s Gladiator Sparta i5 bundle uses a low-cost Gigabyte motherboard and 8GB of Corsair memory to build the foundation for a solid mid-range system. Featuring an out-of-the-box overclock to 4.40GHz and cooled by a Scythe Ashura heatsink with Gelid GC-Extreme thermal paste, the versatile 4670K processor can be used to form a variety of system types, despite being best suited for gaming and general usage tasks.
With the build process already completed and a 4.40GHz overclock applied, does Aria’s convenient Gladiator Sparta i5 4.40GHz bundle appeal to users who want a fast system foundation without having overclocking and stability worries?
