  • Good product.

    Had it for 9 months and so far so good. However if you want to do some serous overclocking I'd advise a H2O cooler (default cooler can not keep up with overclocking).

  • Pretty good package

    I spent ages trying to find a motherboard combo I needed at very short notice. Typically in the fast moving world of PC components, trying to find anything in the real on the high street that you want NOW is not that easy and impatience usually means spending a lot more. However having to spend a little more than I initially wanted (no lower spec combos were in stock) I settled on this but not that bad value compared to on line prices - perhaps about £30-40 more. I installed a new copy of win 8.1 and used a WD black 2TB 6Gbs Sata drive and this machine really does fly very well indeed. The on board graphics are totally fine for a non hardcore gamer, and easily upgraded if you are. A couple of nice points that make this totally current is 6Gbs SATA, a single stick of 8Gb ram (nice if you want to upgrade later 3 more spaces available) UEFI bios (very fast boot times) and good branded motherboard. Not a lot more to say. Oh and I reserved on line and walked in to collect, no messing about in the store. All in all saved a a whole load of time and ended up with a great machine as a result.

  • A GREAT bundle, straightforward to assemble and, with Maplin staff to advise, I got it to work first time! It is just like building a hi-tech jig-saw. The Cataclysm bundle included an i5 processor and motherboard to which I added, 8Gb RAM making 16Gb RAM in total, 128 SSD, Win-8 PC, Network card, video card, Z case and PSU and it all worked first time! Maplin's staff were really helpful when it came to the buying of bits. Everything was comparable (thanks to Maplins careful choice of products) and the sales staff made helpful recommendations at every stage. (PS: and no, I do NOT work for Maplins, but I do have a lot of respect for their helpful and knowledgeable staff and their friendly customer service. - Thanks Andrew (PS: and I'm the wrong side of 60 too!)
