 Exactly as expected by Moblo

This review is probably more a review of Aria than the i5 8600k. The processor itself is exactly as described in many available reviews online and on youtube. Simply put, it is a step up from the previous generation in almost every way. For a new mid range pc build, it was the perfect choice for me and very much recommended for a decent gaming build. The only thing to bear in mind is the known fact that intel has used inferior thermal compund between the ihs and the die and so temperatures may vary between units and at some point, may need to consider delidding and replacing. This does however void any warranty. Onto Aria. They were fantastic to buy from. I managed to get a web special deal and so got the processor cheaper than anywhere else. They packaged the box perfectly and it arrived without a scratch. it works perfectly. The delivery was extremely quick and there were plenty of emails at each step of the order keeping me updated. I cannot flaw their service.
