What's the fun in that?
Yes, bought from Scan. Wouldn't touch Overclockers... ever. It's not pre-built per se, just CPU and RAM in sockets. I have to build the rest.

And overclocking? Probably the most boring, frustrating and down right time wasting thing I could do without. It's a chore for me, not fun. I don't want to do it myself and don't have the time to.

Sounds like iPhone most owners. They don't care how it works as long as it works. Then when it breaks they pay a ton to get it fixed when most of the problems are easy fixes.

well you'll have on-board graphics with HDMI if you need it. plus i've heard that z68 works better with SSD's than p67.

I'll fix my own problems. I don't quite see what's invalid about my statement. As I say, I work from 7am to 7pm each day, so my free time is invaluable. I want to go straight into gaming, not fiddling with overclocks and stress testing.

Why not have someone else do it? I don't find it fun at all... so there is no reason i'd do it myself. The cost of having it OC'd was the same as buying all the components separately! So, it wasn't as if i'd save money by doing it myself.

Nothing wrong with that imo. This man works hard and paid for a service. Overclocking may not be his idea of fun. Do be sure to check your voltage though to make sure its not way out of line. But that's a fine looking setup you have there. Enjoy it !

Yea, I chose very carefully. Scan are known for excellent quality PC's and bundles so I trust them. I will however check all temps, voltages etc... prior to full use.
