The same CPU went to 700 degrees a few days ago (now expired) for £84.10 (£79.90+£4.20 postage). This has Quidco included (£1.92) and free delivery (select the budget option) to make this £73.43... Amazing price!

This is OEM rather than the retail Black Edition so doesn't come with a cooler. I was going to use an old aftermarket cooler anyway. If you're not too picky you can grab a half decent cooler for £5-6 (eg. http://www.ebuyer.com/product/126790 ) and still save on the pixmania price.

checkout any bios updates, that list might have been made when the board first came out and never updated

hot deal from me :)

Strictly an Intel guy myself, but for the price this is a decent CPU.

It does Smiff, you just have to scroll down and look at the AM2+ chips, it's just above the Phenom II 920 and the Phenom 9950. It's not with the 955 and so on as they're in the AM3 chart further up the page.

Hope this helps. :)

Cracking Chip by the way, mine happily does 3.6Ghz on stock volts.

The black edition, has an unlocked multiplier. Its better for overclocking than the OEM version and so a better CPU the fan if supplied is not the real diiference.

All 940's are the Black edition, IIRC it's the 920's that are locked.
#11
Can anyone recommend a motherboard to go with this?

Nothing too fancy!
#12
Hot here! From my research it seems all 940s are Black

ws007 - excellent info.
I won't be buying this, but sorely tempted.
I have a 2.8 ghz dual core pentium, and really thats good enough for what I want
But you'll be saving people a lot of searching. Very good deals there.
#17
I Have an old sony vaio pc. (pcv-rz502p) if i were to change the processor, i know i have to change the board. Do i need to change the psu? ive got ddr2 ram for the board.
#18
Thats a allot of bang for the buck there, Its tempting for me to sell my
current E8400 as they seem to be holding value well probs only need to
put £10 towards this chip.
#19
hi DE4L3R

sorry guy thats a bit old you`ll end up upgrading most of the system to fit the MB

your better off getting all new, and chucking the ddr2 into that.

cheap one, but no os.

You won't get a warrenty with this if it breaks because it's OEM.

Good deal however the Pixmania one came with a 3 year warranty.

And this isn't the same CPU. The other one is a black edition.

No warranty on OEM are you sure?

Its only £10.32 more at pix mania once you add a raoyal mail delivery to this site, so not a good deal at all with less than the 3 year warranty.

Non-Boxed Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Warranty Information
AMD's warranty on processors extends only to customers who purchased products DIRECTLY FROM AMD and does not cover products purchased from resellers. You should direct any warranty inquiries to the supplier from whom you purchased this product.

Seems AMD dont offer warranty on OEM

It defiantly won't have a 3 year warranty, that's for sure!

It would probably be better to get the Pixmania one. It's the black edition meaning it has an unlocked multiplier. Which means you can probably overclock it higher. It's in a retail box with their 3 year warranty.

More info on warranty here.
http://support.amd.com/us/warranty/Pages/SupportWarrantyServices.aspx

Also the other CPU hasn't expired. The price went up by £1.20 meaning it costs £85.20 delivered.

Cobblers since when has OEM meant no warranty, honestly!! You've heard of the sale of goods act 1974 presumably??

As for AMD you're contract is not with AMD so why worry about what AMD do or don't do your contract is with CCL, oh and a warranty does not affect your statutory rights

Yeah i spent 12 years with europe largets electrical retailer and let me tell you the Sale of goods act it a toal load of shyt3.
You will get a 12 month warranty with CCL, Lots of waiting around while they test the fault.
After 12 months the responsibility is with the customer to prove the fault was present from new, that means you have to get it checked and provide a report to state that, even if you get that they only need to provide you with a part refund equivalent of the estimated missed time you could have expect to have the product last.

The Sale of goods act is very grey with its terms so its very hard to get what you want, Lots of letters and calls ect.

OR £10.32 and 3 years warranty backed by AMD Hmmmmm
#25
Barebones or OEM do not have a warranty, the products have to be fit for use (sale of goods act). But do not come with any paperwork or support. If they break you need to buy a new unit

To be fair, even with the 3yr warranty, if it could be proved that the cpu was damaged through no fault of its own (by customer in other words), eg heat damage from overclock/failed fan/blocked fan, blown PSU etc, they could say tough titties.

Luckily, it would cost them more than the CPU to actually test to this detail ;)

Why don't you just say "I worked for Dixons"?

6 Months actually, the first 6 months the retailer has to prove it wasn't faulty at point of sale (interpreted by retailers as notification of fault within 28 days), this has not been tested by a court yet as far as I know as all retailers have settled before it has gone to court.
After 6 months, you have to prove it was faulty when you bought it (almost impossible)
#28
Yes you get a 1 year warranty with CCL, however £10 more for 3 years with AMD + better edition = DEAL.

lol.
#29
Be careful with what motherboard you buy the gigabyte and Asrock N68C-S board linked on this thread do not offically support this CPU as they don't support 125w CPUs, which I'm pretty sure this is.
#30

Free advertising i dont work there anymore lol
Never once did i ever have a customer come in quoting the Sale of goods act that went away with what they wanted. :(
#31
last few comments a somewhat weird as i've always had an oem cpu in my big box machines
and the only time a lost a whole computer and cpu was my fault when i replaced an old dying psu with a cheap rubbish one.
anyhow, point being - the machine in question was older then 3 years.
Do lots of cpu's die then? never really come across such a thing - then again - i'm usually happy to leave at stock speeds...

Question - is it worth an upgrade from an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
to one of these? as my mobo is supposed too support this...
#32
Yes its worth the upgrade.

If you overclock its possible to overheat the cpu, anything can go faulty! Just pointing out that for £10 a 3 year AMD warranty is a much better bet than 12 months with CCL.

CPU Benchmark

CPU NAME - PASSMARK CPU SCORE (higher is better) - RANK (lower is better) - CPU VALUE (higher is better)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ - 1643 - 289 - 11.33
AMD Phenom II X4 940 - 3675 - 96 - 13.41

Technically - yes. But it depends on what your using your comp for.
#34
I think all things being equal the Pixmania deal is better. How long do deliveries normaly take on pixmanias "Budget delivery 10 working days"?

Was going to build a Q6600 system using 2nd hand parts but what's the point at this price!
