Why voting cold? I know this is a good deal. This board is £150-160 elsewhere and the CPU is £220-230. What's not to like, it's a fantastic motherboard for the price. Custom PC rated it very highly, it was/is A Listed.
#2
I am still waiting for the return of any pc with an i7 processor in for under £400!

Kicking myself for not taking the Dell Earlier this year....
#3
Hot for me great deal :)

Well, there are some new CPU with new sockets comming out so I'd rather wait and buy the new technology than the old one or current one.

You know how it is with PC. - NEW TODAY, OLD TOMORROW :-(

I hear you, but there's never a good time to buy. Have to jump in some time though. 1366 and i7 has plenty of life left in it yet. Aren't there rumours about Intels next upgrade will put an end to overclocking?! Where's the fun in that :|

i got this motherboard with the core i7 950 from scan for £352 (not inc del) last week from the today only section so it may be worth taking a look on there first OP before you commit.

How do you like the Asus P6X58D-E? Have you overclocked your 950?

No not overclocked it (yet) it is already at 3.07 GHz, but with the eco mode when i'm not running crysis on high settings it slows down to 1.65GHz then as soon as crysis is on its at 3.25Ghz so not overclocked wanna enjoy it for a bit, before i risk burning it out.

The motherboard is in my opinion pretty standard, but future poof with 2x usb 3.0 at the back and 2x SATA III (6Gb/s) onboard, sound is 8.1 channel (pretty sure it is only 7.1 tho), also has the classic Asus ExpressGate, but can be turned off it requied with the BIOS (but this is proabably info you've seen in the spec for the mobo).

Finally, the 950 has a few more multipliers than the 930 so in theory it sould be easier to overclock but if you gonna overclock as soon as u get it the preformance between the 930 and 950 should be pretty much the same. But its good to keep that in mind.

Sooo, have fun building, with whichever one u decide to go with and always check the scan today only section especially on fridays as they have alot more in that section to last through the weekend. You could pretty much build ur whole comp from their today only section lol.

PS it was my first build but i had a lot of help in choosing parts from some uni buddy's

Thats a great DEAL!..
#11
So for the non geeks out here, is this what you buy when you want to chuck your PC but don't need a new HD, OS, PSU, DVD and box to put it all in ?

If so, just how easy is it to set up ?
#12
This is cold the 950 i7 was bundled with this board yesterday at Scan today only for the same sort of price and the gigabyte one was cheaper at so a much faster CPU with the same board for less.

Good deal, great board and CPU.

Unless you have bad batch can easily do 4.2-4.4Ghz 24/7 on air (aftermarket cooler or H50/H70).

1366 has been 2 years on the market and these CPUs have still plenty of life ahead, especially when OC'd.

Board is little underestimated - it's great for OC on air/water even in tri-sli with heavy overvoltage on CPU and GPUs.

Why on EARTH is this hot? You would be a bit stupid to not buy the i7 950 with this board for similar money. The 950 is simply a better CPU and this would have to be considerably cheaper to make sense
#15
I think places are not stocking the i7 930 so thats why the deals are arriving old tech now

i7 950 is just slightly higher clock speed, not a huge difference. Similar money? At Scan right now this motherboard and i7 930 would cost you £376.38. Or with a i7 950 for £391.65. That £40 different will almost get you a Corsair H50 cooler. Scan might have had a great bundle "yesterday". If Scan do the bundle deal again, then great go buy it.

I'm not asking or forcing anyone to buy this, just bringing it to peoples attention.

Asus motherboards.... They do not offer a warranty with them. I purchased a new Asus board that was DOA. I was told by Overclockers.com that Asus boards are guaranteed perfect! and they could not accept the board back! They gave me details of Asus Europe - they in turn told me that Motherboards are not covered - although I could send it to some shop in Scotland to look at!!!! I did this and was then told the error/problem was not covered. I now have a brand new dead Asus motherboard!!!! I wouldn't touch an Asus mobo if you paid me. (except for the fact I am using my old Asus mobo from 2 years ago!!!!) lol

^ I agree, OCUK are not exactly known for their customer service.

markopoloman phone oc up and say the magic word, trading standards. If they sell it to you and it breaks within 1st 6 months they have to prove the problem was NOT there at purchase. Certainly DOA means it was and you will get your money back from the people who sold it to u and not the manufacturer. Nothing can be sold without warranty unless you buy from a private seller in which case everything is sold as seen. Call the office if fair trading.
I am thinking of doing self build what should I expect to spend on a build featuring similar processor/ mb?

Office OF fair trading.... Sigh, iPhones!

OCUK screwed me over too on an RMA graphics card. I will never buy from them again.

Your contract is with Overclockers.com, not Asus. OC.com have a dreadful reputation for customer service.
As another poster has rightly stated, get Trading Standards involved. Also, if you paid by credit card get them involved.
And if OC.com still want to be [email protected], take them to the Small Claims Court - dead easy and cheap to do.
#23
All the comments which are negative regarding overclockers - I have always found them spot on
#24
Voted Hot. Wish I could justify the spend though :|

As others have said either contact trading standards or start quoting the "Sales Of Goods Act 1979", a law that protects the likes of us folk, from the retailers who cannot be bothered to sort out the problems with faulty goods. Retailers often pass-the-buck saying that 'you need to contact the manufacturer' - which is wrong. You purchased the item from the retailer, so your contract is with them and what's more in some cases you can be protected for up to six years if the item should be expected to last that long (though these are rare).

As it is upto the seller to prove the item was not faulty when you recieved it (did they hand it to you personally and check it with you when installing) they are obliged to replace it or repair it or offer a refund. Failure to do so means you can claim expenses and costs for their failure to comply with the law - online retailers are not exempt

One piece of advice. If you're buying anything online, use your credit card. If things aren't as promised, faulty etc, you can ask your credit card company to refund you.

Why on earth are you not talking to Trading Standards? It doesnt matter what they say, if its DOA at the point of purchase then it breaches the Sale of Goods act and you are fully entitled under the law to demand your money back or a replacement product.
#28
That's good advice about using credit card to buy anything really. It offers protection on any item over £100, and they'd probably help if the amount is less than this. I once had an issue with an ISP a long time ago now (dialup). Wasn't getting what I was paying for, getting the run around from the ISP. Called my credit card company, and they took it from there. I got every penny back in no time flat.

The motherboard in this offer has a 3 year warranty, all computer products come with some form of warranty... 1yr, 3yr, 5yr, lifetime. You were well and truly fobbed off there. First year is usually with the supplier the remaining with the manufacturer.

What motherboard did you buy? When? Asus isn't at fault here, it's the supplier and yourself for accepting the BS they told you. I'd never send an item I just bought to some unknown 3rd party in Scotland or anywhere.

Call the company again and try to get it resolved, failing that call your credit card company. Good luck.
#30
We dont want your dead motherboards , send em elsewhere ! ;)

Never had a problem with Asus motherboards myself.

Cack deal though.
#31
I third that, ocuk not good for cs. But you can't go wrong with scan. I have an i7 920, had it about a year, still easily copes with anything I throw at it. Anyone wanting a propper i7 with tripple channel memory would be silly not to go for this deal!! And I wouldnt say the 930 is old tech. It's still current.
#32
you can get the MOBO on today only for £138.64. add the i7 950 and you can have it for £364.17 delivered or £357.18 if you're a member of AVFORUMS.
