Take your PC to the next level
The Tactical Strike bundle from Maplin is a liquid cooled, futureproof motherboard bundle. It comes with an Intel Core i7-7700K unlocked Kaby Lake CPU, which is one of the most capable Intel CPUs on the market. The CPU shines when it comes to gaming performance, and is equally indispensable in 3D rendering and video editing. The Intel Core i7-7700K is unlocked and able to be overclocked and thanks to your liquid cooling system in this bundle, you can push it further than you may be able to on an air cooling setup.

Best in class motherboard
The motherboard at the heart of the Tactical Strike bundle is the ASUS Maximus IX Hero. This motherboard is designed from the ground up with support for liquid cooled gaming systems. It comes with ASUS Aura Sync software, which allows you to control the lighting of your motherboard, any external LED strips, and other ASUS peripherals. Use this to match your gaming setup to a specific colour scheme that you’ll love the look of. Aura Sync also comes with nine pre-set modes which you can tinker with, such as ‘strobing’, which flashes on and off, colour cycle, which fades between RGB colours, and music effect, which flashes to the beat of your music.

The ROG Maximus IX Hero is also one of the best motherboards for overclocking and boosting your system. The EZ tuner BIOS allows you to decide whether you want a simplified interface or advanced mode with more detailed tweaking options. This ensures that no matter what your skill level, you will be able to make the changes to your system that you want.

Why choose liquid cooling?
There are many benefits to using an all-in-one liquid cooler on your system. Air-cooled systems normally need to run multiple fans at high speed, whereas a liquid cooled system allows you to focus your cooling and use less fans, therefore making your system quieter. Liquid coolers also take up less space, because air coolers that perform on par with all-in-one water coolers normally come with a large metal heatsink and large full size fans. If you plan to overclock your CPU and don’t want to increase the noise level of your system, a liquid cooling solution is the right way to go as it offers lower temperatures at a lower noise level. Liquid cooled systems also have a better aesthetic, as they look sleeker and more organised.
