What can I do with this bundle?
Our Special Ops gaming motherboard bundle provides you with the basics needed to start building or upgrading to a top end PC gaming system. It includes an Intel Core i7-6700k 4.0GHz base clock CPU, ASUS Maximus VIII Hero ATX motherboard and 16GB 2,666MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM spread across two modules. All you’ll need to add on top of this to get a system going is a power supply, hard drive or SSD, operating system, the mainboard offers support for a dedicated graphics card, and a case to house it all.

How good is the processor?
The i7-6700K is the top of the range processor under Intel’s Skylake-S line-up. This processor offers an incredible performance that’s up to 22 per cent better than its predecessors. This model is unlocked and also has overclocking enabled, which means gamers and computer enthusiasts alike can modify the processor’s settings.

This CPU supports Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology, which allows it to use resources more efficiently, so that each core can do more than one task at a time. If you are using applications that have been optimised for multi-threading – such as video editing, 3D rendering or other apps used to create, edit and encode graphically intensive files – you will see increases in overall and multi-tasking performance.

What is the included RAM like?
Provided with this bundle is 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 across two RAM modules, which has been designed to run at 2666MHz. The memory stick’s heat spreader is made of pure aluminium, and the eight-layer PCB helps provide faster heat dissipation and higher overclocking headroom. Support for XMP 2.0 gives you trouble-free and automatic overclocking. Since two DIMM slots are used, you’ll have two other slots free for further upgrades.

would this come with an operating system ready to go when installed into a computer?

Unfortunately this is not included with a copy of windows as this would need a hard drive included for windows to be stored on.
