Can over clock these a bit on the z68 / z77 mb. I can overclock my i5-2400 from 3.1 to 3.6 on the z77.

Why on earth would you buy a locked CPU if you have a Z68/Z77 motherboard?
#6
Excellent price. This is going to get hot!
I thought only K processors could be overclocked, but I don't have sandybridge so I may be wrong.
#7
Same price on their website and can get topcashback either 1% / 4% depending on which band it falls under. Great find OP.
#8
Looks good although I'm waiting for the 'cold, it's not Ivy Bridge'
:D
#9
Thanks OP - just ordered one.

Nice price going by camel
#10

This, or a AMD FX-6100 for around £70?
#14
At last, a CPU deal that won't have the Intel fanboys complaining :p

This. Unless you don't have the £30 spare, but then I'd still go for an i3, although it seems they're only about £10 cheaper than this. AMD don't really have much to offer unless you're looking for an integrated GPU.

But if they were you would be paying considerably more for this CPU. :)

I have *always* been a big fan of AMD over Intel. You always got more performance for your money and the only times I'd own a machine with an Intel processor would be if I bought a "bargain" machine with one already in.

However ....... I recently needed to build a reasonable spec low power consumption (low consumption / high performance) server and could not do it reasonably with an AMD processor for a reasonable amount of money. Looking at the Intel offerings showed more performance with less power consumption in most cases.

I went for a HP ML110 G7 in the end - it had the E3-1220 in.

My old AMD quad core (Opteron 1354) HP ML115 server consumes 130-165 watts at idle. The new HP ML110 consumes between 25 and 30 watts at idle ! Thats a saving of between £80 and £100 a year in electricity !

It makes me sad in a way - I've always been fiercely loyal to AMD but the price/performance gap has now vanished.

Good price heat added

Although for the motherboard that I ordered from a deal from here I think this CPU is not good enough

Asus P8Z77-V Premium Motherboard (Socket 1155, Intel Z77, DDR3, S-ATA 600, ATX, Thunderbolt Onboard, mSATA 32GB SSD Onboard)

Anyone could give me a good advice? I think I should spend a bit more and get an i7

Well there is (in theory) the Opteron 3200 series chips. But trying to get one unless you have use for a whole 1000 tray is impossible. I wanted a 3250 and a 3280 and went through my usual channels but no joy. Most couldn't get hold of them and the ones that could would only supply the whole 1000 tray. I also cant seem to find any retail product that have these chips in on this side of the pond.
#26
@asandino how much did you pay for that mobo? there was a deal posted on here for the older asus mobo with the Z68 chipset (Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3) for £80 at amazon but the price has gone back to its normal £120+
#27
people still voting this hot? as its OOS. but still available to buy on the base.com link.

The reason why I posted the Base.com link is in case Amazon run out of stock X)

You did the right thing, brand loyalty does not reward you with regard to electronic goods. Being loyal to a brand is generally an illogical thing to do, as long as the competition comes up with something better than your brand is offering.

Base.com is not Amazon fulfilled as far as I know, so they will probably charge for international shipping as they do on their website.

Wow I just saw that deal now - that motherboard is worth £300+ R.R.P.

Mate, my advice is to sell that motherboard (since you're asking this question you don't need the features that motherboard offers) on ebay for £200ish and buy a £80 motherboard like the Gigabyte Z77-D3H and use the £120 on something more useful (better CPU or GPU).
#35
can anyone recommend a motherboard for this processor please ?

Ill be using a gtx 460 with it ( dont know if that maters, am a spaz with pc's )

Someone has mentioned the Asus P8Z77-V Premium Motherboard at 120 quid but is there anything cheaper ? Or is that motherboard worth the extra money.

Cheers lads

you can get even cheaper boards with H77 or even H67 chipsets if the price is still too high, but this one is good value.
