Intel Debuts Unlocked CPUs; Win a CyberPower PC

By - Source: Tom's Hardware UK | B 5 comments

This could be your ticket to stress-free Intel overclocking.

We've been overclocking our systems for as long as we can remember. Intel hasn't always been the biggest supporter of such habits, but that changes today in a big way as the chipmaker has today made official the multiplier unlocked Intel Core i7-875K and i5-655K processors. At $342 and $216, respectively, they're attractive options for those who think running at stock speeds is just silly.

We've put them both through their paces, as well as head-to-head against similarly competitive options from AMD, in our feature review by Chris Angelini. Check that out right here.

While such processors hit the market at the exact right time for those looking to build a new rig, there's a chance that you could win one. We're partnering up with CyberPower to give away a PC valued at $1,499 based on Intel's Core i7-875K processor.

Full specs include:

  • Intel Core i7 875K CPU (provided by Intel)
  • Intel 40GB SSD OS Drive (provided by Intel)
  • CoolerMaster 690 II Advanced Case
  • ASUS P7P55D-E PRO Motherboard
  • 4GB DDR3 1600 Kingston Hyper-X Memory
  • 1TB Hitachi Hard Drive
  • Samsung 8X Blu Ray Combo Drive
  • EVGA GTS 250 1GB Graphics Card
  • 800 Watt Power Supply
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
  • Card Reader, Keyboard and Mouse

    What they give with one hand, they take away with the other. So in the UK, we're informed that we are the only one's on the planet (at the moment) to get 10 free games with a PSPGO, but something worthwhile, that we actually want, like this, no friggin chance.

    Here, PHP code to not display competitions outside of the US.

    Quote:
    if ((isCompetition) && (!eregi("tomshardware.com", $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'])))
    {
    // Do no display article
    } else {
    // Display article
    }


    Note: That's a copy paste from some very old code of mine, I'm fairly sure that eregi is deprecated, but you get the idea, you can use preg_match instead.
