Intel generally follows a tick-tock philosophy for new processor launches. The tick represents a shrinking of the manufacturing process - 32nm to 22nm, for example - while the tock is indicative of a new architecture based on the leading process of that time. This has been the case since 2007.

Asus Maximus VIII Hero, Intel i7-6700K CPU, Corsair 16GB DDR4 (3000OC) RAM, H115i AIO Water Cooler DIY Bundle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality bundle of matched components Purchased to upgrade my sons PC for gaming. He's well pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent spec top-end bundle This is a good value package if you want the best. Installed and been running beautifully for several weeks, cooling is excellent core temps maxing at 60-70 C on reasonable loading. Fans very quiet, certainly drowned out by my 1080p watercooler fans on a heavy load. Usual excellent BIOS from ASUS, a pleasure to use. Discrete lighting, nothing too garish ! Some things to note - The rear IO panel supplied with the mobo was a tight fit in my case, but did squeeze in ok. The watercooler block didn't seat well first time, could have done with a spring loaded mechanism like some others I've used, had to clean and reapply the paste and tighten it a little bit more the second time. The dual Rad fitted very easily into the case front, just the right length of tubing to make it easy to fit. I've marked the score down because of an issue was the mobo DIMM channels. It failed to boot at all in the recommended A2 and B2 channels, but the clear error message from the mobo made it easy to diagnose. Quick google suggested issues with waterblock fittings shorting bus signals but I fitted insulating grommets and still no luck, found that putting the memories into B1 and B2 worked fine. Probably shall look at a BIOS upgrade if I ever put more DRAM in. Usual ASUS attention to detail on connectors, plenty of fan connections etc made it probably the quickest and neatest new build I've done. Win10 installed easily and immediately ran with its own standard drivers; install them from the manufacturer at your leisure. Not overclocked yet so can't comment on that. Overall a superbly performing bundle and actually a good value package for the money from Scan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relatively excellent value Nice components at a very good price. So good in fact, the saving almost pays the difference between an i5-6600K and the i7-6700K bundled. The only downside was that I was thinking of the Alpha version of the board, but this deal was just too good to turn down. So good value, if still expensive. The advantage of putting it together yourself, is that it you can fit the Hydro cooler over the CPU in the way that suits where you are going to place the radiator, so for me that means the "Corsair" logo is sadly upside down, but no great shakes. The cooler backplate will appear to be disconcertingly loose, but don't worry it is meant to be and will tighten up when you fit the cooler and tighten up the bolts. Easy to fit and comes pre applied with cooling paste. The Corsair instructions and information could be better though. Just make sure you use the correct stand-offs and it will be easy enough. I fitted the backplate and then the rad internally before connecting the cooler over the CPU, using an InWin509 case. Overclocking with this board is a breeze. 15% 4.6Ghz can be done with virtually a click and expect higher OC for manual OC, like 4.7 - 4.9Ghz, which should be possible with this water cooler. Overally a simple build once I found out about the play in the cooler backplate. The system is fast and with current component prices, the bundle is a good value and a great way to build a Gaming PC.

Date published: 2016-09-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great package Overall this is a nicely balanced package of bits for a really good price. Most of what is included is pretty much what I would have picked myself. CPU The 6700K has to be (at the time of writing ) the best bang for your buck as a gaming and workhorse CPU. With the included watercooler I have OC'd it to 4.7GHz, and could probably push it a tiny bit more. RAM The RAM is nice if unremarkable. No LED's or anything, but just solid and reliable Motherboard The mobo is great. I've been a fan of the ASUS boards for some time (I used a VI Hero in my previous Haswell build). And this VIII Hero is a definite step up. It has enough USB ports and a few bells and whistles. If I had to criticise one thing, it's that the LED Logo can't be illuminated white and isn't very bright. You may run out of fan headers and internal USB headers, so worth checking the specs to see if this board has enough (it should do for most people) CPU Cooler The Corsair H115i water cooler is new to me, as I've always used air cooling in previous builds. Overall I have been impressed. It was easy to fit and just worked. A minor criticism is that as I mounted the radiator in the top of my case the logo strip on the side is upside-down. A very minor thing, but it would have been nice to have a spare in the box with a flipped logo. The fans are quiet and at the moment with an ambient temp of about 25-27C the CPU is sat at 28C at idle. Prime95 for 10mins hits 79-80C which seems about right. This is using the pre-applied thermal paste rather than more expensive stuff. I have not used the Corsair Link cable from the water block as it's an ugly cable and gets in the way. It's not long enough to run behind the motherboard easily so if you want a nice tidy case you may struggle to hide this one. I believe the Link connection is needed to change the colour of the water block logo, so I'm stuck on light blue which doesn't really fit my case aesthetic Very impressed with this bundle. Would recommend
