Was going to say that a 3M/6T FX6300 might be pushing it for this game, but the CPU benchmarks aren't that bad (at least FX6350 and since this is unlocked a small overclock to that speed should be easy)http://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1235/bench/CPU_01.png

Certainly seems to up there with Haswell i3s
5 and a half year old i5 2500k beating up an FX 9590 and even today still very nice for gaming on.
AMD are so bad lol
But Piledriver is 4 years old now.
You think AMD are bad look at how little Intel have managed (with the cash spent) the i5 2500k to i5 6600k. 5 years! :)
I know AMD are bad, because they still don't have a CPU that is up to the task of challenging a 5 and a half year old Intel one in games like this. It is as tragic as it is comedic.
i5 6600k beats up the 2500k across the board by some distance. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/288?vs=1544 The difference is this game is more GPU bound beyond a certain level of performance.
I'll give you from as far back as Sandy Bridge there had been a jump but from Haswell to now has been pretty poor from an IPC point of view.
But on a plus point AMD sold more processor cores than Intel and more GPU cores than Nvidia last year!
AMD marketing guys just never grab the headlines! X)
The strangest thing is you're basically criticising Intel for not pushing the envelope when it's up to AMD to actually make them do so, which they have proven entirely incapable of doing since about 2006 when the Core 2 line launched. Intel have the best parts, the fastest parts and their incremental improvements are perfectly acceptable if you can't buy better. You can't.
I know AMD sold plenty of low profit margin parts while not making much profit after years of losses, which is logical. Can't say the shareholders are too excited about that though.
Yes I am criticising Intel for not pushing the envelope. No great things came from 'just doing enough '. I understand why they have not done it when nobody is pushing them to do so.
I do hope Zen is as good as AMDs preview (not too good mind I just sold my shares last week! X) ). While it won't push Intel as they have plenty of IPC advantage and I expect clock speed to be better due to a more mature production process. But what it will (hopefully) do is force Intel to improve pricing as i5's have snook back upto £180 price point. I can't see any reason why AMD won't under cut the i5 with a 4 core and 8 thread part and offer 8 cores and 16 threads for the price of an i7. But looking at the Zen design it looks like the minimum you will be getting is 4 cores.

If Intel had pushed the envelope AMD's CPU business would probably be dead and buried by now. They had the money and technology to bury AMD at all performance levels the past 5 years. They pushed the envelope with their process technology and focused on performance per watt which is much more important than just producing the fastest chip you can, as AMD have desperately done with the likes of the 9590.

Zen needs to be very good but I never thought Intel's chips were that expensive in the first place. If you are patient and know where to look. I paid £240 for a new retail i7 6700k only a few months ago. You can partially blame Brexit for the prices of many electronics rising again. But besides this as the 2500K shows, spending a bit more is money well spent, when a platform and quality CPU remain relevant for half a decade.

People blow plenty more than I did on the i7 on video cards that are considered slow within 2 years. I have a GTX1070 that cost over £400 but I doubt it will be worth more than £200 24 months from now.

AMD's slacking caused much of that GPU headline price as well! If they had their act together then market forces would mean lower prices.

It's like complaining about the best team in the league winning the title 3 years in a row, surely it's their competitor's fault for not stepping up. Much else seems illogical!

Since people are talking about CPU upgrades, here are the best-value Intel CPUs according to the very recent buyer's guide by LTT and with best UK price as compared by PCPartPicker:
G4400 £53
i3 6100 £106
i5 6500 £182
i5 6600K £210
i7 6700K £294
AMD have not really competed with Intel in the CPU space for a number of years, but their upcoming Zen platform looks quite promising. If I were buying a CPU now I would buy one of the above (recently bought a 6600K) but if I wanted AMD for some reason I would be waiting for Zen to be released.
While this deal seems tempting at first, and it's a clever offer by AMD to clear out old stock before Zen comes out, I can't think of many scenarios it would be sensible to buy an FX 6300. I certainly wouldn't be basing a new build around one. Once you see that the SSD is on sale for £37 and Mankind Divided is £40 on steam, you are basically paying £20 for the CPU, which I wager most people who buy this bundle are unlikely to ever use.

According to cpu boss this is better cpu than my AMD phenom ii 965


​Yes it's much better, but it won't be compatible with your existing motherboard, (different socket) so now you're looking at buying a new motherboard to match your newly purchased 4 year old CPU and suddenly this deal isn't saving you money but causing you to invest in obsolete components!

A useless device,, 8gb is not enough to run the pre-installed apps!
That's obviously not true is it.

I had 2 of these for my kids, as soon as the system updated it loaded more memory sapping rubbish and left no room for anything, an SD card is not a fix as the pre installed apps cannot be moved to it. Ended up taking them back to currys as not fit for purpose and changed for the 16gb versions

I wouldn't buy it. Very is not a reputable retailer, the Tab 4 is a the bargain basement offering from Samsung, the display is poor, the upgrade to Android 5.1.1 is still pending (while for example the comparable Z3 from Sony is long on Android 6.0), and most of all: it does not run Pokemon Go because of the Intel CPU.

Yes, it is cheap for a new tablet, but not cheap enough.

Try this ROM from Freaktab.

This box and the TX5 Pro seem to have interchangeable firmware, so worth seeing if it improves WiFi.

For a home router you don't need "3200". Just go with a 1750-1900. 3200 router just have two 5ghz bands. Useless for home networks in my opinion.

the thin piece of cat5e will win for speed, but if its thin its probably flat, and if its flat, its probably not twisted, and if its not twisted, you might experience slow performance due to interference, especially in long runs.
I can't tell if that was meant to be funny.
Because "Wire will win, but if... and if and if and if.... then it's crap" was hilarious.
Or perhaps my mind hasn't survived to the weekend.......

just a little feedback on the machine for anyone interested

it runs really well, nice and snappy at browsing, office, you tube etc... build seems really good quality, keyboard is nice to use

only minor nag, and it might be just me, but the mouse is not that nice compared to others i have used, seems u need to really hit the sweet spot for right click and the mouse itself seems a little over responsive even with the mouse settings adjusted

all that said, for £370 I am well happy, thanks again to the OP for a great deal
there was around 100GB
now down to 499, this is the funniest thing i have seen, 3 prices in one day

I have this laptop, i think its awesome. I dont do any gaming, just web browsing, and photo editing, and its perfect. Really fast, from boot up to being in your web browser in an instant. Battery has been good for me too, i dont use it all the time, maybe around 10 hours or so, and i charge it one or two times a week

Out of interest, before you put any of your own files onto the laptop, how much available space was there with just windows 10 installed ?

Which Chinese phone would be comparable to this?

Elephone P9000 was another that I was looking at and has very similar specs, but I was scared by the reports of SIM tray issues (resulting in the phone showing errors that the SIM wasn't inserted) and bad customer support with fixing this... at least if I have problems with an Argos product I can go back to the shop!

Can't believe the negative comments on here about a phone no one has seen let alone trialled..... I'm due to review this week as part of my techno job and I can't wait....I reviewed the Bush Spira D2 5.5 earlier this year and I must admit to being very impressed for the price bracket of £120.... Bush phones are made by Archos and the E3X is the Diamond 2 in disguise which isn't released yet but will cost £100 more than the Bush for the privilege of having a Archos badge, I will update you after the test.

Wanted to get one of these but missed out on the scan offer unfortunately, however, got a question.. I want to use it to record a security camera (using YawCam) and separate stereo audio. I imagine it should have enough grunt to do simple motion detection and recording in Windows 7 but what about the audio. The mic input cannot be used at the same time as the headphones but will it record stereo (line-in) or is it only mono?

One other thing.. if I wanted to dual boot between Windows and Linux would this be possible?

Secure boot and Windows 8 logo thing you need to disable. I had a load of trouble installing Windows 7, just wanted to upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 7 doesn't support skylake USB 3 ports or something, my USB 1/2 standard keyboard and mouse wouldn't work. After much messing about the solution was to use a Asrock utility that injects USB 3 drivers into the Windows Install, http://www.asrock.com/microsite/win7install/ the Intel one kept crashing on me, but this Asrock (Win 7 USB Patcher) one works.

Not really up with the rate that these things move on an compatibility etc.
I'm looking for a basic unit that will be a bit future proofed basically to run a very basic version of KODI and link to a hard drive for a daughter who will be living away from home and can't now rely on me to ensure she can watch G o T and the like.
Would this be the shizzle, or any other recommendation?

If you are just linking a hard drive with some basic movies then you will likely be fine, although you might get away with an even cheaper device than this.

Will she want glorious advanced Dolby audio formats?

If not then pretty much any box will be fine.

The only caveat that I would add with some boces is that sometimes they have issues with hard drives although this tends to be more of an issue when using USB 3 ports, which won't be an issue here.

rather go second hand get a lot more for your money saw one on Facebook earlier i5 4460, gtx 960 8gb ram, 1tb hard drive, bluray drive, Windows 10. case good to go £150

What? On facebook?... That's a new one.


​Facebook for sale groups or Gumtree people can't sell second hand stuff for good money always a bargain to be had if you are considering end of life like this cpu
fx8320 is pretty weak for emulation and some older games but for anything that uses all the cores it's good. A lot of modern games are using 4 cores now so it works a lot better. Saying that it's too late in the day for this CPU but price per performance will be difficult to beat.
MaxRazor
Amd fx 8320 are good cpu's 8 core CPUs kill all the i3 and alot of the lower end i7 cpu's when it comes to video editing and will play all games without an issue, and you can overclock it with the cooler and price is reasonable for new build so heat from me ;)
For video editing using the right software the FX8xxx does very well from all the benchmarks I have seen but for games there performance seems 'variable', some games do well but others that need strong cores they really suffer, unfortunately most recent games have been the latter. For general home use and gaming the i3 6100 is a clear winner so it depends what you will be using the PC for.

Good but I find it hard to think a FX CPU is a good buy, just too weak compared to even a i3 6100 and using a motherboard and RAM with no future upgrade possabilities

Jesus, I got this CPU for £80 2 years ago. They just haven't lost their value at all. I've since sold it and switched to Intel but it did do the job rather well whilst I had it except cooling it can be a real nightmare.
I bought this CPU a few years back for around this price. It's very weak on ipc but good for tasks such as handbrake. I wouldn't recommend this because you can pick up a nice i5 for this price and a decent am3+ board is a ripoff compared to a intel based board.
I would recommend this cooler for temps 29-40C and almost silent on 125W AMD CPU's.

http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/hyper-212-evo/

Its a little on the large side however, so an AIO watercooler would be an obvious option. The CPUs are generally OK but my RX480 does run hot (80C) when gaming!

good deal for a cpu + room heater combo.
This is 'only' 125W TDP which is less than a lot of similar era i7 processors.
It's more the FX-9xxx series that have obscene TDPs


​tbh my phenom ii x4 965 was also 125 tdp about a decade ago and it ran really hot. I only had a stock cooler on it and cleaned it regularly but it was hot enough to heat my room whilst gaming. Whilst im not an intel fan boy, i really hate the amount of heat generated by amd cpu/gpus.

my 280x which i bought a few years back runs at about 85 degrees at 1080p running overwatch in "high" difficulty.

never amd again.
a second hand 4 cores phenom for around £25 would perform the same in games if not even better. Get an intel if you want something decent for games even a 2 cores

good price for the boxed version but I saved £5 and got the unboxed version as I was using a noctua with it.

cant imagine many people buying this would want to use the stock cooler so might as well spend £5 on faster ram or anything other than a box and cooler you will never use.


The retail version doesn't come with a cooler anyway. Only advantage is a 3 year warranty as opposed to the 1 year you get unboxed.
Well said, I was deceived by an eBay seller from whom I bought an i7 6700k claiming to be a never used 6700k i7, it didn't work at all, it was a hassle sending motherboard and memory back all to test and return. Intel surprised me with their service, I put the processor serial number and raised 3 year warranty claim, call came from Intel support, send dhl to pick up faulty one on Tuesday to send to Netherlands, new replacement arrived on Friday. They never asked me where did I purchase from, only thing they asked me was, was it in a retail box?

Yup only 1 year for you boyo haha 5 quid for 2 more years... silly silly boy
£5 for a warranty on something that basically doesn't break.
Warranty also voided by overclocking.
Warranty is not voided by overclocking as it is a 'K' CPU which has a unlocked multiplier, they are marketed as overclockers, it is voltage that kills CPU's which in turn leads to overheating, as said though impossible to tell it's been killed by a bad voltage bump.
They're sold unlocked but the warranty still doesn't cover overclocking.

People going to be buying extended warranty's on their other pc components?

I got one of these albeit the Celeron N3050 version. Not sure if there's much difference but my one is dog slow and only appropriate for general web browsing. Plus the mouse pointer stutters a lot when it's loading some applications.
You get 12gb storage to play around with out of the box.

I don't believe the 100S comes with a N3050 Celeron. Many others in this form factor do, however, e.g. the Acer ES1-131 which in my personal experience having bought a refurb from Argos, did indeed run like lard. Exchanged that for a 100S from Argos and the difference is night and day. The quad core Atom easily handles a few Chrome tabs, YouTube and MS Word running simultaneously without stutter. I'm very impressed. The battery life is well over 7h as well, got a 128GB microSD card and the eMMC size is irrelevant.


​Mine was the 100 not the 100s. Exact same device apart from the processor. Had to get rid of it as it was unusable for anything other than general web browsing.
Bought one of these and took it back - very poor indeed

Via flubit the i5 6600k came up as £179 for me. Not the cheapest but it's acceptable. Although I am still in a huge dilema whether to go for tie i7 6700k or the i5 6600k. Diminishing returns...
Most of these processors are pretty great though, just this 6500 makes it one of the very fastest consumer CPUs around.
I have an i7 6700k and justified it by knowing I'll keep it for several years, but I would hardly be upset if I had a 6600k and overclocked it. Very very fast CPU and will be good for many many years.
If you are willing to overclock and accept those risks, then the 6600k is probably the best choice for the high end in terms of bang per buck. The i7 6700k is just for the greedy people :p
It won't last as long if you overclock it.

How long do you expect/need useful life? I have a Bloomfield system that has run nearly 8 years at 1.35v since the day it has turned on. That's >200w. And my it's had a hammering of use. The platform is basically obsolete but the system just keeps on breathing. Still gives many AMD parts a bloody nose on gaming benchmarks to this day too in its overclocked state....

An i7-4790K on a cheap £40 motherboard will not be obsolete, neither will any i5-4xxx chip in a year or two given the lack of performance increase from Intel since Sandy Bridge.
More BS talk than Wenger himself... :D

Again, I will repeat, it is not obsolete now but for less money you can get a newer i5 which has a more efficient output and will last longer, with ddr4 ram, more power etc..

No one has said they ARE obsolete, but they will be quicker, and a 4790k is more expensive than a 6600k, so it makes literally no sense
DatAlbino
Im not saying it doesnt work well now, but in a year or two your PC will be close to obsolete with an 1150 socket and a last gen CPU mine will still be this gen and easier to upgrade with stuff like better DDR4 RAM
xela333 could've built their rig when Haswell was still the latest generation. In which case the money saved last generation could be used to upgrade to the newer stuff.
You've been snobby all over this thread and all you're doing is putting people off building their own PCs and PC gaming. You need to learn that not everyone is throwing £1000 at a gaming rig.

I spent my savings, 600 quid, on my rig, Im not saying for people to do so, but the CPU, GPU and mboard should be the 3 most expensive things, if you spend 140, why not spend 170 if you can and get a much, much better one? its a small extra amount compared to the added output and futureproofing

I am literally poor as hell, a student who gets by on a weekly basis, and I spent my savings building this, but Im happy cos I know it will last in the future, much longer than outdated CPUs and 40 quid motherboards will


A £40-45 motherboard isn't going to be obsolete quicker than a £100-150 one. Both will be obsolete at the same time when Intel decides it's changing its socket yet again.

That's not how this works, you're not listening to anything anyone else is telling you. Yes a Z170 chipset is great, but unless you're an enthusiast and like overclocking and have a chip that is capable it's a waste of money. An i5-6400 will perform the same in a H100/H170 motherboard as it will in an expensive Z170 motherboard. And I urge you to prove me wrong using multiple, respected sources.

​problem is skylake isn't as big of an improvement as you claim it to be
​and one last thing, the 4790k performs much better than the 6600k, hence the price

I agree with you, Skylake was overhyped and actually isn't that much better, however it IS better, 5-15% depending on the CPU in question, DDR3 will start to become obsolete in a couple years, at which point everyone with 1150 sockets and 4790ks will have to upgrade their RAM, their motherboard to fit their RAM, and their CPU to match their mboard socket, instead of just spending 70 quid more now and buying a better CPU (30 extra) and a z170 mboard (40 extra)

Now I'm no maths whizz but 40+30=70, which is an upfront cost to stop you having to upgrade a CPU and mboard in the future, which will most definitely be more than that.

Besides, the i5 6600k is better than the old 4790k at gaming and is considerably cheaper! It just makes sense (unless you already have an old 1150 setup in which case, its too late xD you'll need a new PC setup in a few years)

BTW Just like to clear this up cos I'm seriously worried from a couple of comments about coolers here, not using a CPU cooler with a 6th gen i5 is seriously risky, and if you're doing anything near decent usage, such as gaming, rendering or multi tasking, which most people with good i5s will do, then not using a cooler would be PC suicide

Not with gaming.


​in that fort you can just overclock the 4790k if it doesnt perform as well in games that use less threads, even though at this point in time only the gpu will be the bottleneck for these two cpu

You've been snobby all over this thread and all you're doing is putting people off building their own PCs and PC gaming. You need to learn that not everyone is throwing £1000 at a gaming rig.
I spent my savings, 600 quid, on my rig, Im not saying for people to do so, but the CPU, GPU and mboard should be the 3 most expensive things, if you spend 140, why not spend 170 if you can and get a much, much better one? its a small extra amount compared to the added output and futureproofing
I am literally poor as hell, a student who gets by on a weekly basis, and I spent my savings building this, but Im happy cos I know it will last in the future, much longer than outdated CPUs and 40 quid motherboards will

An i7-4790K on a cheap £40 motherboard will not be obsolete, neither will any i5-4xxx chip in a year or two given the lack of performance increase from Intel since Sandy Bridge.
More BS talk than Wenger himself... :D

Again, I will repeat, it is not obsolete now but for less money you can get a newer i5 which has a more efficient output and will last longer, with ddr4 ram, more power etc..

No one has said they ARE obsolete, but they will be quicker, and a 4790k is more expensive than a 6600k, so it makes literally no sense

Looking at the benchmarks unless you're doing some heavy multi-threaded video encoding this CPU gets so easily beaten by the 6700K for half the price. In fact the the 6700K even beats the top end 6950X in most games which I find hilarious.


​well it doesn't get beat all the time does it? Also as it mentioned in that review this tended to happen in older titles and I'm sure people who buy this cpu are looking for future gains not just here and now. Yes it is expensive but it's never been aimed at the mainstream.... So pipe down

Cheap, but it's 2 generation old now and uses memory a generation old too, not worth building a new system around.

A reasonable upgrade for some existing machines I guess (though I'd rather save the money and put it towards a future new build).

​My last phone was a Find 7 it was a great phone though I agree all the 2k screen does is suck battery life. I now have a Oneplus Two with a 1080p screen and can not tell the difference

Is this a decent upgrade from 1100t black edition?
I don't think it would be anything noticeable, it will run cooler and use less power than the 1100 and it's a good overclocker but I'm not sure you would see much difference in use . Not sure but can't see it, the 1100 is pretty decent
Any ideas on a motherboard as my current one is rubbish at over clock. Cheers
Depends on your budget really, I'm using the MSI gaming 970 mobo and I can't fault it at all, I paid around £70 for it. The bios is excellent and you can you can set fan speeds really easy, I really can't recommend MSI products enough they are great. It has a lot of good features which you can check out on the linkhttps://www.msi.com/Motherboard/970-GAMING.html#hero-overview
Thanks for your advice mate :) Is that board decent for overclocking? Might hunt one down on eBay if it is :)

it is very easy... just enter the OC part of the BIOS and adjust the multiplier. the BIOS is one of the easiest i have used to date

also using the FX6300 here, i picked it up from CeX for £50 2nd hand with a 2 year guarantee.. overclocked to 4.0ghz and no troubles running anything at highest settings on 1080p with a GTX 970... stays pretty cool aswell.

obviously intel offerings are better but if your on a budget and/or dont want to change your motherboard like me, this CPU is brilliant

​I've mine at 4.5GHz in a fleabay special Biostar board, I reckon you'll get more from yours no probs ;) It's my HD 7870 Tahiti holding me back now :(

Did you have to alter the voltages ? When I O/C mine i just altered the multiplier , tested it at 4.0ghz and thought yeah sound lol. Haven't seen much need to try and get more out of it, i have mine on an MSI gaming board which was a piece of cake to OC on :P

if you get the right mobo and bios these can be overclocked nicely!
But then a non OCd previous gen quad core i5 will be faster in pretty much everything.
Not to mention that OC is never guaranteed and power-wise is not as efficient.
yes but the previous gen is more expensive than this, i5 wise. i have a 4690k and it clocks well.
I'm pretty sure that you can buy the whole platform (cheap motherboard, cheap ddr3) + i5 cheaper than skylake i3 + ddr4 + mobo.
Normally I would have said the only reason to buy into skylake would be future proofing a bit, but I'm currently running PCIE NVM SSD on z87 in full PCIE 3 4.0 mode so no bottlenecks there, generally.
Can't think of anything that would would run on i3 skylake that won't run on i5 haswell.
I'd be fine buying an older platform.
However, Intel keeps the price of the i5-4690k the same as an i5-6600k. It's pretty upsetting. AMD we need you to compete with Intel again!
and your absolutely right, but the new ddr4 ram and mobos are on par now with ddr3 prices and z97 boards. the only point i was making was that with the 'unlocked' special bios which has been officially removed, it allowed overclocking of the chips to performance that is near i5 speeds - according to overclockers and other sites. :)

i myself have a nice oc'd 4690k on a z97 board with 2 x m.2 SSD's, 1 x pci-e and it flies at 4.5 ghz. :)

but less cores......
That's why you see recent i3's (2 core 4 threads) outperforming 8 core AMD CPU's, in games.

It might change in the future with DX12 taking more advantage of the CPU. They're a good choice :)

So you're comparing an a 5820k to an 8350. enthusiast all go x99 , not rocket science is it.

No I didn't compare those two. I gave an example why more cores doesn't always mean it's better. I stand by with what I said earlier. I don't know which one I'd choose unless I got very specific in usage scenarios, like hitman007 said, rendering.

If you are looking for a cheap mobo/video card/cpu combo, don't ignore the intel and AMD APUs. Integrated graphics has come a long way.
Check out the i5 5675C, you can find it around 200 quid.
Also, remember, any combination with a GPU and low end graphics highly favors NVIDIA GPUs as they put less strain on the CPU.

Good call, the 5675C is a lesser-known APU that has really good CPU & GPU performance in comparison with the admittedly cheaper AMD counterparts, notably 7850K & 7870K.

Here's some gaming benchmarks:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/9320/intel-broadwell-review-i7-5775c-i5-5675c/7

Although, at £226 on Amazon, you could *almost* get an i5 65/6600 + gtx 750 ti that would do a better job overall. If it could come down to around £150-175 if would be perfect!

Do you need a video card not really for what you need to do
Think the ram should work. PCIe connector is only 4x and not 16x but from what I have read it should work but not at full speed. If you want to make something for your kid I could recommend A4 6300 and FM2 motherboard for around same cost or even less. Around same APU performance and you will get benefit of x16 pxie speed. The only downside, if I recall correctly is that the A4 is rated at 65w instead of 25, so it won't be as good for quietly watching movies.
