What can I do with this bundle?
Our gold grade Battle Hard gaming motherboard bundle supplies you with an advanced base for building a PC gaming system. It consist of an Intel Core i5-6400 2.7GHz CPU, ASUS’s Z170-P ATX motherboard and a 4GB Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM module. All you’ll need to add to this to get a system going is a power supply, hard drive or SSD, operating system, graphics card and a case to house it all.

How good is the processor?
The Intel quad-core i5-6400 CPU has a base clock speed of 2.7GHz and a boost speed of 3.3GHz. This boost speed is automatically achieved by the processor through use of Intel’s Turbo Boost technology 2.0. With this technology, the system determines if you need the extra power and, if temperatures allow, you’ll get the increased speed on one core. Overall this processor gives you the ability to game and multitask for improved productivity thanks to its excellent performance.

What makes this motherboard different?
ASUS’s Z170-P motherboard is great for any rig that you would like to future-proof and be able to upgrade in the future. This is primarily thanks to its multitude of connections and expansion slots. It has USB 3.1 type-C connection and an M.2 third generation M key socket, allowing you to use faster M.2 SDDs for faster boot and load time in your games.

The motherboard has been built with 5X Protection II – the finest components, an excellent circuit design and exacting standards to guarantee quality and long-term durability has been used, resulting in exceptional protection and stability for your build. One example of this is the exclusive circuit design, which has built-in voltage regulators that protect other components from damage caused by unexpected high level voltage surges. Second-generation ASUS T-Topology has also been included, allowing you to overclock DDR4 memory modules, with up to 3400MHz rated RAM supported.

How much memory is supplied?
Pre-installed on the motherboard is an 4GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory stick (RAM module) which runs at 2400MHz. It’s heatspreader is made of pure aluminium, and the eight-layer PCB aids with providing faster heat dissipation. The PCB design also allows for higher overclocking headroom. Support for XMP 2.0 gives you trouble-free and automatic overclocking. Since only one DIMM slot is used, you’ll have three other slots free for future upgrades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flexible Package - Great Price This was bought for me with my supervision as a Christmas present. Our computer needed gutting and upgrading after breaking down, and as we already have a good monitor, keyboard, mouse, case etc and being fairly experienced with computer building, felt I would get more from my money buying components separately rather than as a complete computer/laptop. We only had a budget of around £300/400, so did a bit of research with various well known computer component suppliers before coming across this for under £300 (£289, Normal retail £349) due to it being used and previously opened, which was no problem for me. The delivery was quick, 1-2 days, and everything was in good condition, all manuals present, with driver DVD's sealed and unopened. The box looked a little tired, and certainly you could tell it was opened previously but for a £60 saving I'll take that. The motherboard is fairly basic but includes everything most people will need, while also giving you the flexibility to add to it in the future, which is so important, and one of my main requirements, as technology and compatibility moves at lightening speed. You can easily add a graphics card, more RAM (DDR4, up to 64gb depending on operating system), and even switch the processor for an i7 later on as the socket caters for a variety of Intel 6th generation chips. This motherboard, I feel, gives you a great base to work from when building a budget, high specification/gaming PC. It might not be perfect for real enthusiasts as I don't believe it supports SLi for graphics cards, but for most 'normal' people who want a fast\future proof, cost effective PC, that can handle gaming, this is great. The RAM, while only 4gb, comes already installed and is Corsair MTX with a fast clockspeed of nearly 3000mhz. This is quite cost effective to add to in the future, and will be the cheapest way of adding performance quickly. The processor and fan were also already installed, making this much easier for less experienced computer builders. The chip is an i5 2.7ghz quad core 6th gen intel, that can be overclocked to up to 3.3ghz quite easily using the asus easy setup tools in the bios. I think overclocking may need better cooling than the included standard processor fan, but is easily done if needed. I had to add a power supply, partly as mine had given up the ghost, and partly because the sockets have changed from 20 pin to 24 pin ATX, and the CPU power from 4 pin to 8 pin. I have read that some people just plugged there old ones in leaving the space where the extra pins should be, and I did try this but unfortunately it didn't work, though I think this was due to the power supply being past its used by date rather than the sockets. I picked up a Corsair 650 watt power supply for around £50 on offer, and the machine now runs so quietly its hard to tell if its on. I also needed a new CD\DVD drive as the old one was IDE and this board takes Sata only. That is more down to the age of my components but might be worth bearing in mind, especially if you have IDE hard drives etc. It is only compatible with Windows 7 and above, so I ran into a problem as there were pictures and documents that needed accessing and saving on my old hard drive which has Windows Vista. I was hoping to do an upgrade to Windows 7 in order to preserve my old files\documents. Having no CD\DVD drive (to start with), when I tried to install Windows 7 from a USB thumb stick it couldn't proceed due to needing the drivers for the USB slots on the motherboard in order to proceed, and they were all on the CD\DVD. When I did get a new CD\DVD drive, it got past this error but wanted to do a full install and wipe the hard drive, rather than just an update which would save the files. I got around this by installing Linux to a memory stick, booting from this, then using Linux to copy all the relevant files to memory sticks using the other USB slots, before doing a fresh install of Windows 10. The USB\DVD driver issue is quite common with Windows 7 installs from bootable USB drives so is worth considering if you don't use DVD\CD drives anymore or have an old one like mine. This added another £25 for a DVD drive to the bill. These problems are all due to my old hardware, rather than the product itself which worked perfectly straight out of the box. However they aren't things I considered before purchasing, thinking more about memory, processor and the slots at the back being compatible with my monitor, rather than the plugs and sockets for things like the power supply, DVD\hard drives etc. Schoolboy error. Now everything's up and running I am extremely pleased. For the money (Just over £350) I have a great, up to date PC, that runs fantastically well, and is all the better for being future proof. No doubt I will add some RAM, and a graphics card in the future but for now the performance is great. If you don't want to play games or do graphics heavy applications like video editing or 3D image processing\design you could even forget the graphics card and have a perfectly adequate, fast family PC out of the box, safe in the knowledge you won't have to "rip it up and start again" when your computer does start getting tired in a year or two. I think this is a great deal, an i5 computer for just over £300, for that money competitors could only quote me an i3 so I'm really pleased. Easy to assemble and great performance.
