Hello, and welcome to the board
The comment I made is specific to this thread, and not one that is used normally. What I meant by it was that the build listed used a seperate heatsink rather than the one that comes with the CPU, and if you are working to a budget, like the thread indicates, is the £25 better off spent on upgrading the graphics card for instance, or a better CPU?
Now obviously you could use the better heatsink to overclock the CPU, but not everyone wants to or needs to do so, and hence my original request for comments added to the builds to show the reasoning behind the choices. Seeing as how CJ used a build from a magazine, my request is moot.
