Is there any benefit to upgrading the mobo other than due to the lack of pci 3 and other than because of the potential windows 10 creator update issue?
£72 to upgrade to z270k mobo
I wonder if this board will have problems with the Creators Update for Windows 10?

Was recently browsing http://www.tenforums.com and came across a thread mentioning problems with drivers for the GA-H81M-D2V Link

At a quick browse this looks like a decent deal for a pre-built PC but I have some concerns. The 4.2GHz "overclock" in the title is actually the max turbo frequency of the 7600K so not really an overclock, and you won't be able to overclock on this motherboard either due to the H110 chipset of the motherboard. Although it may be possible to overclock through the BCLK.
Most importantly:
H110 Chipset - "Lacks support for RST, Smart Response Technology, Smart Sound Technology, Small Business Advantage 4.0, RAID, overclocking, and multi-GPU configurations. It also loses more than half the USB 3.0 support of the Z170 chipset. The number of HSIO lanes available falls sharply, and their use is limited. Memory support is reduced as well, as only a single DIMM is permitted in each channel. Finally, the H110 is also the only chipset to lack PCI-E 3.0 support; instead it uses eight lanes of the older PCI-E 2.0 standard."
PSU - Only stated as being 500W and nothing else, in my experience the PSU's in these pre-built units are usually kack and have higher rates of failures. E.g. The Corsair CX500 Builder series 500W PSU
The least important:
RAM frequency is only 2133MHz - though this won't make a noticeable difference vs higher frequency RAM
If you did want to buy this, I wouldn't advise picking the 7600K unless you plan to replace the motherboard. Stick with the i5-7400.
Ahh didn't see it was only a H110 mobo. Significantly hurts this deal - still, a decent price nevertheless if you'd rather the all in one warranty and don't want to build.
Very true. Not sure how I'd feel about having to run that 1060 6GB at PCI-e 2.0 speeds though.
I'm sure it wouldn't impact at all. But, it does hinder you having such a modern chipset without any modern features... I'd probably factor in a motherboard upgrade myself and that kinda takes away from this build. As i'd be better off going the Ryzen route then - however for those that want something that "just works" you could do a lot worse than this by far.

Been great for me and others.


So you have had a AIO system from them leak and cause damage with them replacing the components that were damaged?
I have read some stuff about it before, the problem is when your system has components that are no longer on the market, they get devalued and your replacement amount (in USD) may not cover you buying the same as what has gone faulty. They do from what I have seen, make you whole again tho - so that's good.

I also want to point out that the review in the OP is not good at all.
An AIO or any Liquid Cooled system would need to run for more than 10 minutes for the radiator, fluid, and everything else to come to the max temp. Someone who has an AIO system probably see's this, the spike should not be fast, and once all load is removed then it shouldn't drop down to idle temp quickly either.
https://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/02/10/corsair_h105_240mm_extreme_perf_aio_cpu_cooler_review/ should reflect more on how these systems work, he points out that there is a 30 minute wait before temps are taken. Personally I think 45-50 minutes would be better but I can understand why this is not really practical for testers.

I personally avoid liquid systems but these things do look great to me in terms of ease of install compared to non AIO water cooled systems and the price doesn't look bad for what you are getting ;) .

A minor point to be aware of...
Those with Ryzen based systems, these aren't yet AM4 compatible. It only requires a simple, cheap mounting kit though. Google for "Asetek Liquid Cooler AMD AM4 Retention Ring Kit". Should cost you less than a fiver.
They offer free kit, it's shipped next day to you from Germany.

Good spot, I'd not seen that Arctic were on with it.
Send proof of purchase of 120/240/360 cooler to [email protected] for a free mounting kit.

Would this be a better bet than my current Seidon 240v on an i7 7700k? I'm not entirely happy with the way temps jump when the load rises...
A jump in load temperatures is.... pretty expected. Compare it to the load on the coolers in reviews. Be aware in many reviews they talk about the delta temperature which is basically showing how far above ambient temperatures it was/is.
If it's in the realms of: 24c ambient, 30c idle, 50c load - that's quite normal/expected. VERY good thermal paste might get you a couple of degrees back (at most unless you're using mayonnaise or something :p ). Improving your general airflow through your case will help too.
HWmonitor by CPUID gives a bunch of useful info (you sound to already have sources but... comparisons might help) regarding temperatures/voltages/etc.
It's not so much the jump in temps itself, but how it jumps. With an AIO I'd expect an initial increase (smaller than you'd get in an air cooler) and then an increase over time until you reach a stability point somewhere between 30 and 60 mins after starting. That's what I've seen with other AIO's but not with the 240v.
It jumps, more or less immediately, to the point at which it should stabilise much later. That's the sort of behaviour I'd expect from a copper air cooler not an liquid based AIO. To be fair the temps aren't bad, hovering around 70 with spikes to just under 80 running Aida 64's CPU stress test, but it's just odd behaviour.

The 7700K has spiking issues, they said it's fine themselves, even though imo it shouldn't happen. Huge thread about it on intel forums. Mine doesn't spike higher than 71 though.
My i7 7700k still jusmp/spike and sounds like that is normal. Arctic sent me out a am4 mounting bracket fot free, I just went to their site and completed a form in 5mins, thought best get it at the time as hadn't decided on ryzen or i7

How realistic is it that this card (or any other sub £150 card) will run h1z1 / PlayerUnknown Battleground at 1080 at a decent FPS? My laptop with a GTX 950m runs H1Z1 fairly well (haven't bought PUB) but I'd want better performance from a desktop build.

Ok, so to translate "buy a different board altogether to go with your completely different intel processor". Heat still added for this deal unless you want old technology.

Whilst I agree with some of the comments pointed out about boards being overly expensive due to the use of 'bling' on them, there is a great deal more in terms of value add to try and compete with each other. Look at the integration of much better sound chips, these come at a cost, along with up-gradable amplifier modules, things like 5Gbps networking IC's and then the there is the addition of Wi-FI and other such addons, again these all odd physical and licensing costs.

Yes, some of the board manufacturers are taking the pee slightly, but now that there is some competition between the two largest CPU manufacturers again, then there will be competition to price motherboards more aggressively.

With regards to reliability, I would be surprised if there was a much larger than normal failure rate out of the box than that of any previous generations released, and much of that would be early batch (beta) issues, or BIOS problems rather than complete duff boards.

Whatever problems you had with the seller has nothing to do with the deal....Go find the seller and take it up with him, voting cold on a thread is not going to resolve the problem only YOU had, funny since awd it have been very reputable over the years i think it must've been your attitude that gave it all away....

Yeah as if AMD has a bigger sponsor budget than Intel or nVidia... :D

Interesting that AMD aren't on that list considering they paid for him to go to their preview shows and some of the videos even mentioned it was sponsored by AMD.

The Linus videos used to be quite good and informative. Now they try too hard to be funny with their stupid video thumbnail. Much better channels are Salazar Studio, UFDisciple and AdordedTV (though I suspect he's an AMD fan)
Not so good in gta v,not a suprise give single thread similar x99 cpu's from leaks.

Again , don't see why you'd pre order a cpu . There will be plenty at launch and decent independent benchmarks not the supposedly "leaked" rubbish .Not saying these will be bad before anyone tells me how amazing these will be
They had the conference yesterday, go check out Linus on YouTube, the actual figures are up and are mighty impressive.
The leaked benchmarks we saw (BF1/4K) was running on their lowest tier chip as confirmed by Linus so I'd believe any "leaked" benchmarks you see.
If I didn't have my 6700k then I'd pre order in a heartbeat.

Isn't one of Linus's main sponsors AMD?

Hmm since I'm only doing video editing.. Will this do..?
You don't need a GPU at all, stick to your iGPU and save your money.
Most software primarily relies on CPU for rendering files, BUT a decent GPU is helpful for certain things in certain software. For example i upgraded my GPU so that i'd be able to get a decent fps playback in davinci resolve, and can now watch things colour graded on the fly ( i believe it stil uses the CPU rather than GPU when it comes to exporting?). Id do a little research into your chosen software ( for example i know that Lightworks has also been using GPU to help with any effects/colour corrections for the last few years).
cold. not worth the money. get a 1050 or a used card.

I have used the oc feature but it just makes the card louder with very little fps benefit . I run my games at 1080p Doom on ultra vulkan api. Gta v on a mix of very high/ultra. Borderlands 2 maxed out and Rise of the tomb raider on high. getting over 60 fps most of the time with few drops below that.

I finally got mine on wednesday. So far everything seems fine.(besides a weird pink cast to the screen when I initially installed the drivers this went away went I rebooted my pc). So far I have played a few hours of GTA V and a few hours of Rise of the tomb raider fallout 4 and Borderlands 2 with no problems. Doom on the other hand was a bit of a problem it would crash on startup but a reinstall fixed that. I have found Steam in home streaming is being a bit picky with the games it will work with. On My 1050ti all my games worked via in home streaming but with the rx480 some just won't play nice.
Thank you very much for the good news! May I just ask what settings you are running these games? And also if you are using the OC feature and overflocking the card?
I finally got mine on wednesday. So far everything seems fine.(besides a weird pink cast to the screen when I initially installed the drivers this went away went I rebooted my pc). So far I have played a few hours of GTA V and a few hours of Rise of the tomb raider fallout 4 and Borderlands 2 with no problems.

Can someone please confirm that they got this card and it works fine? There are a number of people who bought the 8GB model from the same site and are posting that they had issues with the card turning off under high loads when playing games.

anyone get any shipping updates, I still have a slight doubt in the back of my mind that we won't get this
Spoke to them on live-chat yesterday, all the RX 480s are getting shipped this afternoon, so no need to worry :)

I have just spoken to them. They told me due to the bad weather yesterday items will not be shipped till early next week. Make of that what you will.

I knew it, they sent me a email stating because of weather conditions its delayed, what the hell, cancelling my order and ordering with Overclockers, they state it will be delivered tomorrow if i order within the next 1 hour., its £10 more but you get Doom 2016 anyway.

This card is quieter than my old Evga GTX 750ti SC, but I have nothing else to compare it with so I don't know if that's saying much, the noise certainly doesn't bother me.

If anyone is looking for some idea of performance, I have been playing doom on ultra settings at 1440p and getting an average of 85fps (make sure you change the API to Vulkan in the settings as it adds about 30fps to the performance)

At 1080p with ultra setting i'm getting around 155fps.

I got my replacement card today from CCL, I'm happy to report that it is working perfectly in the 3 or 4 games I've tested at 1080p and 1440p.

It also passed a load of tests on 3d mark.

Very pleased so far.

AWD also processed my return and refund quite promptly. No complaints at their level of service - would happily use again.
Frustrating that Asus pushed out a bad batch - must be a costly and time consuming process for the suppliers to manage these returns. I wonder whether Asus recognise this in any way?
Funnily enough my previous forays away from Nvidia have ended badly!
So now what to do? Wait for good 1060/1070 prices? How long before we start to see meaningful price drops, if at all?
When have you returned yours ? I did on Monday but still waiting hopefully everything ok. I am thinking to buy something really cheap maybe used one to keep up until rx580 or vega arrives or 1070 go below £300. I really just need a card to play Fallout 4 now.

I posted mine at about lunchtime on Monday and the refund landed mid-morning today.

Given that it was a second class return it is quite plausible that yours will land tomorrow.
I was informed today that the card I returned was indeed faulty, they offered me a full refund or said they could next day ship a replacement card, I decided to give it another chance as I'm happy with the price and performance this card should provide so hopefully I don't get another dodgy one or it might put me off ASUS for life...
So I went over to a friend's house and tested my rx480 4GB from awd-it on his AsRock 170 pro4s and everything was fine. We played VR and the card handled it fine, there was no overheating/noise/lag. Played CS on max settings and Ranbow Six siege as well. Both ran fine, card never crashed. Max temp was 67 C. I never used the OC feature just ran the card at the default 1300 speed. So either I didn't stress test it enough, or the 4GB models were OK with this batch

Will be cheaper come feb 28 - both amd and nvidia have events that day
No they wont this is nVidia
Nvidia is releasing the 1080ti, making the 1080 the new mid high end, and the 1070 high mid end.
Amd is expected to release vega / rx500 high end to replace fury cards
A new pecking order necessarily changes prices due to decreased perceived value. Price will go down - or I should say they'll continue to go down
No this is nvidia were talking about. The 1080ti will be in its own tier just below the Titan XP so the current linup will retain their position and therefore remain at the current price points. I'd predict £900 for the 1080ti.
Although if Vega can compete then only that would drive prices of the current 1070/1080's down.
Not saying nvidia will drop rrp
I'm saying retailers will drop prices to move stock that isn't selling for those prices, as a reaction to the lower demand
No they won't. Happens everytime with nVidia. The Ti is on another level to 1080 and 1070, it will have no affect on their prices.

If the Ti can't do 60fps at 4K maxed out, I'm gonna be angry. Hulk smash the HQ

Good price for the moment, if for whatever reason you can't wait. Surprised that nobody has commented on the ASUS GTX1070 being £330 at novatech last month. Have people finally realised they can't time-travel? :O
Anyone else notice the little booboo they made with the box art? X) Not bad for the current prices of a 1070, shame they havent dropped all that much.

The 480 is superb, but this compact 1060 is aiming for a different market. There is no compact 480 as far as I'm aware.

Looks good, but a 350W PSU sounds a bit low.
Nvidia recommends 400W with a GTX 1060
See: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/10series/geforce-gtx-1060/ and click on the "view full specs" link.
That's for the reference design. Board partners are free to tweak to lower power usage to make then smaller/quieter.
True, but I think I'd still go for a bit more than 350W - that's going to be close to the lower limit and that doesn't leave much room for future expansion. A 50W drop from reference to production cards seems a hell of a lot!

Not at all. Look up some reviews of top-end parts and take a peek at the system power consumption benchmarks. For example, Anandtech's GTX1080 review; Intel i7 4960X @ 4.2GHz, GTX1080 Founders Edition, 32GB RAM, 335W draw under load playing Crysis 3. Powering that system with a 350W PSU would be inadvisable, but it would work. A mid-range system with a GTX1060 would be absolutely fine.

Looking at Anandtech's GTX1060 review, the same system with a 1060 FE draws 264W. But it's unlikely anyone is going to run that card with an overclocked 130W i7 and 32GB of RAM. An actual mid-range system will draw a chunk less (certainly <250W at load).

This is just as true of the RX480 BTW. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't draw that much more power.

Edited By: satchef1 on Feb 16, 2017 22:10
Have to agree, I've built one of these mini style cards into a compact ITX chassis, with a low profile 1U style 250w PSU, and and i7-6700T, 16GB RAM etc, and the power draw from the wall under full load during stress testing was less than 170w, very power efficient cards.

However if you've got the PSU to support it, the RX 480 8GB at £189 might be the better buy, but there's literally only a few percent difference in most games or applications. :)
Rich44
Is the Rx480 8gb not the slightly better value at £189?

I'd say yes, but in the end it all boils down to the user's preference
