So what spyware have Lenovo installed this time?
They hav been caught 3 times so far - see http://thehackernews.com/2015/09/lenovo-laptop-virus.html
I wouldn't trust my data to a Lenovo after all that without a complete install from scratch.

Please tell me what make and model of computer you use.

Home build deskside with CentOS Linux 7. Core I7 5820K with Asus X99 motherboard.
I also have a Google Nexus (Asus) tablet for odds and sods.

I don't see how that's relevant though.

Interesting! So it was the Samsung Note pen you opened?
The Fujitsu pen arrived and it has quite a hard tip, but the 2 buttons and eraser should be handy. I guess I'll get a Note one too for the softer tip. Do they have buttons/eraser?
Oops, that illustration could be confusing - no, that's from the XDA thread where they discussed the S-Pen, I opened up the Banggood stylus and it had those two screws.

The S-Pen doesn't have an eraser, but it has a button. Beware of fake S-Pens (also discussed on that XDA thread). Suppose I should just stick to my Note 4 stylus! I'd assume the 5 and 7's pens are even better?

The Banggood stylus was a big disappointment.
If you're feeling adventurous you can open the stylus and adjust it's sensitivity thus...http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1964551
Looks useful but from the feedback I've had it's reckoned it's the tip that's the culprit (with the Banggood stylus), but worth a try. Strange that some would be having sensitivity problems with an S-Pen as I've found mine is excellent. Mind you, the XDA article is for the Note 2 pen, rather than the Note 4 pen I'm using.

Banggood have emailed asking if I want a "£10 voucher" to buy another one! Going to tell them I want a refund.

Edit: Well! I had a fiddle around (with the smallest bit from Tommy Walsh Poundland mini screwdriver!) and kept the little cover off till I got it to the sensitivity I wanted. It's actually MUCH better and double-clicks icons and writes more fluidly like the other pen!

From testing a while, it still has moments where it "misses" but it's much better than it was.

I laid it on its side like this and only turned the left screw, as recommended. http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1443804&d=1351624208

Do you have a link for the tempered glass you bought?
Sounds like you got a faulty stylus from Banggood. I'd ask for a refund.
These stylii are compatible, have 2 buttons & eraser and go dirt cheap...http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Genuine-Original-Fujitsu-T4020-T4220-Notebook-Stylus-Pen-CP323611-01-/131914704832?hash=item1eb6baa7c0:g:EZIAAOSwnipWUKP6
Sorry, didn't realise you replied.
The tempered glass protector is here http://www.banggood.com/Toughened-Glass-Screen-Protector-for-Cube-I7-Stylus-p-1003649.html (still fits even though it says i7 Stylus, they're exactly the same dimensions).
Re the stylus http://www.banggood.com/Original-Electromagnetic-WACOM-Pen-For-Cube-I7-Stylus-p-985391.html Not sure if the stylus is faulty - one reviewer (Vexelius, on page 3 of the reviews) added this Youtube video where his stylus is behaving as mine was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2ZesmQX7ws On TechTablets' Chris didn't seem to imply it was faulty, and it was the hard tip versus the Note 4's rubber tip that was at fault.
Might be worth complaining again though.
Do you know if the Fujitisu one above has a rubberised tip similar to the Note 4's S-Pen? Don't want to buy another dud.
Have you tried adjusting the tip sensitivity in the Wacom settings app?
I won't be able to test the Fujitsu one till the tablet arrives in a few weeks but it has great reviews and is said to have a softer tip than the wacom ones. Will update when it arrives...
I installed the newest Wacom driver (mentioned it in the TechTablets thread), no difference really.

Yes, please let me know :) The Banggood stylus was a big disappointment.

wot about taxes ..seems quite good tho, but wonder about weight and battery life?
Just plump for standard shipping and you won't get hit by taxes. Only time I paid is with DHL. If you want lightness and longer battery the Cube I7 in first reply is the one to go for. It's very slim and light but with same processor power. The Teclast has 2 full size USB slots though which is a huge plus for most people.

Sadly a TN screen, I don't know why Lenovo insists on TN screens in mid to high spec laptops. Such a shame.

I think, here at least they could argue TN is better for gaming and this seems to be the idea of this machine.
MrPuddington
It is a U series CPU - no competition for a proper M series CPU. Otherwise very good, but the mediocre CPU let's it down.

Totally disagree, that cpu is plenty powerful enough for any gaming and most other cpu intensive stuff. Plus in addition if the graphics are switchable it can enable you to save loads of battery and have a much quieter machine.

IT has passmark of about 4000 compared to 8000 you get for mobile HQ and QM "proper" ones which come with 4 actual cores so single core performance is about the same. I also really doubt many games make sensible use of this many threads so the benefit is really small.

I am a big fan of U cpus combined with great dedicated graphics, and I have been using i5 (4 th gen U) plus GTX960M and it works like a breeze and I can use it normally for non gaming purposes.

Why cold, good specs
Not really. Dual core CPU, 8GB ram only costs £25, 1TB HDD is only £40, no SSD, no dedicated GPU.
Nothing special at all. Not for £500.
Doesn't this have a dedicated gpu? The specs say "AMD Radeon R7 M360 2GB"

It does have a graphics card but to be honest it's not worth that much because it simply can't push the pixels in most modern games even just at HD ready (720) resolutions.

http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-R7-M360.142637.0.html

For £500 I think it's possible to do a little better in terms of overall spec.

Thanks for this tip. I am not so updated with hardware specs and would have been taken in by this "dedicated graphics" bit.
Any recommendations for what I should look for in a graphic cards to do 4k video editing? Budget is around £650 to £800 max

Hot for the lower specced machine.
For the higher specced - A 920m is taking the **** and is literally just banged in there so they can stamp "dedicated graphics card" all over marketing material.
Just ordered the cheaper version - actually roughly what I was looking for and a good price. ONLY PROBLEM is that it's red, but it can be overlooked

Still nothing to beat the Dell Inspiron 15-7559 at the moment. "Open box" type offers on amazon for not much more and it's a vastly better laptop.

Well except that the Dell would be 15 inch, and where would you get it for £566?

Really good machine. There is only one thing I'm reluctant to buy and it is the battery life. For portable machines it should be something crucial. Unfortunately it is poor in this case.
But it's a powerful processor. You need to compromise somewhere.
Nice to see it's got an anti-glare screen. Sick of the shiny ones. Doesn't have a lighted keyboard though.
The 15-7559 has a full i7-6700HQ, 960M (4GB) and 8GB ram. It's missing an SSD but it's a trivial addition.
Not sure why you're telling me this - I was only commenting on the battery life.

Well my surface book just arrived, after a few niggles of it needing to be charged and updated it's up and running. And I have to say it might just be the best laptop I've ever had. Feels fantastic, the screen is brilliant, blazing fast so far and windows 10 actually really shines on this thing. Really good purchase, all I need now is the baseqi sd card adapter so I can expand the storage a bit and a decent case.
My Surface Pro 4 is the best device I've ever owned. What a machine. Flawless.

I was really looking forward to getting one of these because of the dedicated GPU but cancelled my preorder after seeing that it was only a 940m. I wanted something that could handle my day to day work but also play some games in the evenings. For the money the new XPS 15 is a far better buy. I've played the new Tomb Raider and Fallout 4 on mine at medium settings and it handled them very well.
Yeah I would definately have preferred a 960m, but I've got a desktop and I'm happy with steam streaming. For the odd bit of gaming on the go the updated 940m with ddr5 is plenty to run all but a handful of my games. Tbh I quite like it as it pushes me to play something other than just the latest aaa games. But if it's your only machine and you want to game I would get a razer or aurus over this.

Got to say these are the best laptops on the planet at the moment - a lot more exciting and innovative than a boring old mac.
Um they are not laptops. try using one on your lap. They are tablets with magnetic keyboard just like the linx 10"
Also I think they are overpriced for what they are, you could buy a Mac air n
and a good laptop for the price of some of them.

I think you're thinking of Surface Pro 4.. not Surface Book - and yes you could buy both of those things but even combined they wouldn't be as good, as practical or as unique.

not sure how far you would stretch but for me that extra are well worth it, very similar but will save the hassle for upgrade http://www.laptopoutlet.co.uk/hp-pavilion-15-ab208na-15-6-gaming-laptop-intel-core-i7-6500u-12gb-ram-2tb-hdd.html
of course the screen is poor so depend what you need to sacrifice.

I think they've made a mistake there, the 6500U is dual core (notice the U, quad cores have HQ on the end usually).

The cheapest for a i7 quad would be the 6700HQ on this one:

http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/7559-8046-Dell-Inspiron-15-7000_1905120.html

Unless you want a 4th or 5th gen i7 quad, you'll unlikely find one at less than £700+.
but if you look at the website there is similar variation even for couple extra quid with 4K screen

If I'm looking to spend a grand or so on a good PC, what's the best advice on where to look?
What do you need it for, is the first question to ask? Do you already have a monitor/keyboard/mouse or are you starting from scratch? If you provide a few details then it will be easier to advise.

I want it to play games, and other random tasks. I have a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers.

I'm not sure I'll get it, but I'd like to be ready for virtual reality devices.

Any advice would be appreciated.
Well if they could afford to knock £300 off it for a week, it was overpriced in the first place.

I like small form factor PCs a lot and this one seems to be not substantially larger than a gaming console. Dislikes for me are the proprietary motherboard and the large and not desperately attractive power brick. Apparently the water-cooling keeps the i7 6700K running fairly quietly. It would have been nice if they offered a GTX-980 option for a good Oculus experience. I can't find it cheaper and though I prefer to build my own, I like system builders that go that extra mile. In that it is small and quiet, it ticks the right checkboxes, for me and I can't find it cheaper. Nice find!
I built a mini itx machine a couple of years ago. It sits happily next to my Xbox One and PS4. Armed with a 970 and an i5 it puts them both to shame.
I can heartily recommend a Cooler master 130 case. I did have a Dell PC prior to the build but the case wouldn't accommodate long card lengths. I'm guessing is rectified with this case.
I do hate the 'you can build it for cheaper' comments because a ready built Dell is highly convenient and decent value.
I do think a bit of effort will get you something a bit better though.
Did the same my self two years ago. Mine is the minimum spec. If i had the money i wouldn't go for VR as its still very early days. Maybe in five years time there will be more of a reason to go for it. Until the tech has panned out more I wouldn't be interested / believe there is enough reason to spend so much on something like VR.

I agree about VR. The Vive does look good but I'll hold out until the tech matures a bit - and the graphics card get more powerful to make it even more immersive.

My wife has also warned me about getting Vive or Occulus, and she normally doesn't comment on suspicious packages turning up at home!!!

I was quite surprised by this when I heard about this the other day. Maybe the i3's could be the greatest bang for buck in gaming??

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.

Exactly that. An i7 with 4GB RAM, No GPU and little storage seems an odd combo. Depending on the use case you probably want to upgrade at least some of it!
It's a business desktop.
It's designed for number crunching. Not playing games. In that context, it's not unbalanced. (Although more RAM would help I guess but GFX are almost totally irrelevant to most business use desktops.)
But you could use some of the components to build a good gaming machine. The CPU + SSD are not worth the price of this so I guess it depends if you have any use for, or what the resale value is, of the remaining components.
Suppose you could try and cram a GFX card in this case, but your options would be limited.
It certainly is a business desktop, just about to get 30 for work hence the deal. I upgrade them to 8GB minimum as even the most basic desktop user here more than maxes out 4GB at times once Outlook, browser, excel, work the CRM system etc are loaded so I think it should really be standard on a system with an i7.
​if you are looking to buy for business http://m.ebuyer.com/739526 is a better deal!

I think it's unacceptable for a £700 laptop to only have 8gb ram.
​You know 90% of people will never use the full 8GB of RAM you will only come close doing gaming or high end processing which isn't what a lightweight laptop is designed for.

Sure, but such as in my case,16GB can be essential when you are using it as a research laptop. (tend to use ram heavy macros/techniques a lot.)

Is it easy to replace the 256 GB SSD with another 1 TB SSD in this laptop?
Check the Hardware Maintenance Manual for this model onhttps://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/yoga_12_hmm_en_sp40a27258.pdf
Looks like it's a 2.5" SSD
Note: Lenovo BIOS/UEFI usually works with whitelists for Wifi/WAN adapters so you can only use certain models, but don't think that applies to SSD's

Thanks, looks like it can be replaced fairly easily.

I wouldn't touch these shysters with a 50au carbon fiber pole. They are the kings of procrastination if you try to get a problem fixed or refund. Please try someone else after all its only about £20 more from reputable UK based sellers.
Import duties should be assumed, which makes this a no go for me.
Total cost would end up more if hit with import duty & taxes.
I see no reason why Intel's warranty would not apply :)
Does it come with the 3 year intel warranty? or just the 30 days from play-asia?

It's 10% for student discount right? And do they accept it if bought from Dell outlet?

mine arrived today, but two dead pixels, not overly impressed with that!
If it's a 4k ultra sharp screen it should have premium panel guarantee... Dell will replace it

I must've been lucky then! Delivery was meant to be the 18th, but details didn't update via the tracking link.. The laptop actually arrived on the 15th, essentially 3 days early! Was a rather awesome surprise!

Mine from the Dell store took just over 2 weeks to arrive. They are shipped from China.....
How realistic was the estimated date they gave you?
Thought they used to come from Ireland lol
It came a couple of days earlier than the estimate. Once it arrived in the UK the tracking updated with a new delivery date.
Cool thanks.
My xps has just shipped today.... Eagerly awaiting it!
I swear HUKD is going to make be bankrupt... Was debating between this and the XPS 15... Took the plunge.. ordered an XPS, though this is still a damn good deal!... XPS is in production at the moment...! Dammit lol..
Btw to anyone else considering buying a laptop from Dell.. Speak to a Dell sales rep via their online chat.... managed to get 7% off... I think that's pretty standard but still, could save a few quid! Don't just go and say "can i have a discount" though obviously!
ha which model did you for then and was an outlet machine?
not a bad discount...i thought i was trying to be clever and build a direct link with a dell sales guy, email address etc for any queries and so forth but he couldnt get near outlet prices or better the outlet price. so i just ended up using the 15% student discount lol.
mine took 3 days to ship. estimated delivery now showing 19th, previously 25th.
This and cant wait for my Kef references 3.2's!!! oO
Good skills :) - oh to be a student again! Ended up getting the i7-6700hq, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, QHD version ..Arrived yesterday which was very fast delivery too..Looks amazing .. The bezel is so slim it's ridiculous!
Can confirm it's really quiet too..Going to install Steam and check out a few games this weekend at some point but just general browsing/internet is super smooth... I'm really impressed
Got yours already lol... My tracking still hasn't updated.
Syncreon tracking is still showing 'departed manu.facility' for me since the 13th. ETA is still 19th but I don't know if that's for arrival to the UK or my doorstep...
How soon did your tracking update and was the ETA delivery to your door?

Looks like mine is arriving as stated.

The tracking kicked in today en route from Lutterworth now.. Should be with me tomorrow

Graphics card is slightly below a 940M in power. That's.... not THAT amazing to be honest.
There's still a good number of dell inspiron 15-7559's around if you hunt a bit (some open box ones on ebay for example).
Those are a full (mobile) i7, 8GB ram and 960M 4GB graphics. Can be had for £650. It's obviously a bit more expensive but it's a vastly better spec for the price.
See here (note, it's the last one):http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dell-Inspiron-15-7559-Laptop-6th-gen-i7-Full-HD-1080P-4GB-Nvidia-1TB-8GB-/172113828071?hash=item2812c898e7:g:oXMAAOSwe7BWzB~f
There's a few on saveonlaptops too but getting closer to £700/£750 price range.
from what I'm reading the R9 375 is much better than the 940m

Here's the R9 375: http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-R9-M375.142636.0.html
Here's the 940M: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-940M.138027.0.html

If there's stronger AMD powered laptops around, sure, grab one of those.

For the price here, it's a IPS panel, a 4 core 8 thread i7 rather than a crippled 2core, the 4GB version of an approaching "decent for gaming" graphics card...

If it's not appreciated, no issue. If someone isn't gaming or only very light, this would likely do fairly well but for another £100 I consider the dell a much stronger laptop.

For the "scratched screen" comments - fair enough. Screw that particular ebay link then. I paid £650 for an otherwise perfect dell return about 3 weeks ago. The 15-7559's handled everything up to fallout 4 on average settings.

As it happens it's a single screw to access everything (bar maybe the processor though you can get at the cooling for both CPU and GPU easily) which is another minor plus. Not knocking this as a deal at all, just pointing out a strong alternative :)

Ach, you know how it goes I'm sure
No one can really tell what people perceive. I'm sure you are the same, had plenty of experience etc etc. For me that laptop would be a fine general laptop that would also be useful for gaming on occasions, it would play the games I want and it would play them fine. Would it play them great at 1080p? Nope, but I wouldn't care as any laptop at £500ish will be in the same boat.

Would you say it's good value then for what's on offer? I ended up cancelling as I saw some of the previous deals for the Z51 which were quite a bit cheaper for slightly lower specs - for example there was one for around £390 a few months back but the difference was it had the 2Gb graphics card and 8Mb RAM.

Can it handle recent games?
At 16gb ram I don't see why not.


​ram means virtually nothing in games. CPU and GPU are important. you will have no bottlenecks in most modern games with 4gb

Has no-one got photos of the insides or a dxdiag screenshot?

I have looked inside, the specs are accurate, its a 2GB GTX 950M. Its not a laptop card, but not a GTX950 either, I think its made for this PC only, there is nothing else like it, closest think is the GTX 950 mini but even that is GDDR5 where as this is 3. It is worth the £229 with the discount but not much more, only good part inside is the CPU
Has no-one got photos of the insides or a dxdiag screenshot?
Bought one of these machines yesterday and the description on the JL site says "NVIDIA GeForce GTX950M graphics card can be enjoyed in 4K/UHD as well as spread across three HD displays". The photo of the rear of the computer also shows at least one HDMI port along with a couple of what I think are displayports and a full size DVI. The machine actually comes with one HDMI and one VGA. I don't think you could run three displays off that. Spoke to JL who really didn't seem to care, didn't apologies for the inaccurate description. Will return the computer for a refund.

I wasn't able to collect it until this weekend! I took the £600, that's a great computer for £229!

Can you run dxdiag and post screenshots, I'm curious about the actual specs
Does anyone have one and able to open it up and post a photo. I'm curious to see how they put the 950M in a desktop or if its another mistake

Normal Lenovo Laptops are no better or worse than any other budget laptop.

However, contrary to the whingers, these Thinkpads (T Series Laptops) are a cut above any other high end business laptop. Ours get absolutely hammered yet are like cockroaches in that they'll survive a nuclear war X)

I am literally 1 day in to my Lenovo Yoga 500 ownership. I am so disappointed! it has taken me hours to figure out why the screen wont come back on after sleep mode without a hard reset, why the wallpaper is just a black screen, yet to work out why my screen is flickering and it has what looks like (believe it or not) screen burn. Currently resetting back to factory ready to send back. Also wouldnt backup.. I had such high hopes.

Right, I have now opened up my Z50-70 laptop to fix the broken plastic around the threaded bush near the hinge. All is now clear, the cause of the bush breaking free is the 4 screen hinge fixing screws never having been done up. All the flexing has caused the plastic securing the bush to break apart. I have used some plasticweld putty to try to refasten the bush and whilst apart also reinforce the plastic around the bush near the other hinge (the plastic is about 1mm thick and would never last with much stress). This laptop mysteriously lost a screw months ago, now I know why. A quick Google shows loose screws being a common Lenovo problem, when raised to Lenovo they blame the consumer and obviously haven't even put checks in place.
Also because the screen hinge near the power socket was loose it had caused a cable to snap off the back of the socket. That has now been soldered and laptop is OK for the moment.
Looking at recent Lenovo reliability they have plummeted in surveys, no surprise there.

I was going to wait for the Zen's to appear, but they have been put back again and I've about reached the limits of my FX 6300. The motherboard is getting twitchy and I need an upgrade. (I reserve the right to be annoyed at a price drop after the release of Broadwell-E.)
Have you thought about getting an FX 8 core to tide you over until your full upgrade? You could offset the cost with the sale of your 6 core.
Edit: sorry, didn't quite register you said your motherboard was getting temperamental on you
It's really hard to take a comment about 'upgrading' to an AMD FX 8 when they are 4 or 5 generations behind the latest intel chip. Perhaps with Zen they will be relevant again, but really, unless you are making a super low value PC, skip AMD entirely.

Terrible company absolutely awful service. 8 month old laptop right hand hinge broke totally refused to repair it under warranty. Received extremely sarcastic emails after saying that it wasnt fit for its purpose. A laptop should open and close.
I wouldnt touch another item theirs again, ever. It cost them more to return from repair centre in germany than it would to have repair it.
Give them a wide berth.
Had a similar experience with them. Bought a asus i5 laptop with 1080 screen.
Turned it on and was a big bright green pixel/pixels in the centre of the screen. Couldnt even look at anything as your eye was drawn straight to it. Terrible for supposedly HD screen. Sent it back and the refused to replace saying stuck pixels are allowed on new screens. They ignored any emails and are just a tinpot disgrace for a company
Luckily Asus got involved and replaced it straight away.

what are the advantages of downgrading to Windows 7 please?
1) Less of a learning curve, coming from Vista.
2) Your existing applications might not work in Win 10.
3) No adverts in the Start menu, no built-in spyware, no keylogger sending passwords back to M$.
You could probably upgrade your existing Dell to Win 7 for less than £20. But as your Dell is 8 years old, perhaps it's time to look at replacing it. Maybe consider another Dell with a Core-i3 / i5 plus SSD?

I'm in much the same position (currently have an 8 year old Dell Vostro 200) which is why I recommended as I did (4th Gen i5) in post #20. As Nenen has limited experience in installing PC parts however installing an SSD may not be something they'd want to do (although that is not difficult either).

Not wishing to derail this thread, but I have been looking at 3XS PCs from Scan.co.uk, specifically the Scan V15a system (I removed the DVD drive and OS from original spec and added an SSD, Bluray drive and wireless NIC)) and have the following:

- Fractal Design Core 1100 Case & Corsair 450W VS PSU
- ASUS A68HM-PLUS (Motherboard)
- AMD A10 7850K Black Edition, FM2+, Kaveri, Quad Core, 4.0GHz, AMD Radeon R7 720MHz, 95W, CPU
- 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Pro Series Silver, PC3-17066 (2133)
- 120GB Kingston ssd Now V300,
- 1TB WD Blue WD10EZEX SATA III 6GB/s 7200rpm
- LG UH12NS30 Internal Blu-ray ROM DVD Writer SATA
- Asus PCE-N15 PCIe 300Mbps 802.11b/g/n Wireless Adaptor with Low Profile Bracket

for £423 delivered (no OS included though).

Just an idea really, and with Scan any changes/upgrades are fitted and tested as part of their processes before being posted.

Without an OS can be great for those with enough know how to install their own. Windows is often up here for £5-£20, much cheaper than the extra an OEM would charge.

My real question is exactly what someone would use a £600 computer without discrete graphics for? It's too expensive for an office PC, too overkill for a modest gaming PC and too ugly for a high end gaming PC...

I bought one of these last week to replace my Haswell Pentium G chip on my LGA1150 motherboard. I am very pleased with the performance boost. There's a bonus in the reduced power consumption too. The

I received mine yesterday and am happy to report that it works as expected (straight drop in replacement for my G3420), and that the product I received was as advertised.
I thought I saw these being sold as low as £70 in January - new!
I don't think that's true, it must have been the Latest AMD CPU surely?

Actually CPUs wont even overheat anymore as they all have thermal sensors, if it gets too hot they slow down, or in extremis they shut off.
This seemed to be a bargain especially for a HTPC.
People here thinking about the extreme of possibility. On the other hand, they could have been used once to setup a system. Or not used at all.

'Used' CPU? Doesn't like a good idea
They either work or they don't so when it arrives if it's working it'll probably be fine for another 5 or 10 years. Overclocked CPU's might be a cause for concern of course but even overclocking may only reduce the lifespan by 50% and a CPU may well last 10 to 20 years although it'll be of little use in 20 years time.
What utter nonsense - stop posting pseudo-science - this is HotUKDeals. I'm giving heat for the deal, find another forum for your technical discussion...
How dare he write an informative post. The audacity!
Point is it's not an informative post - go Google "walking wounded"...

Ok so if anyone is still interested the cooler comes with some stock thermal paste already applied but I went into live chat with the overclockers team (very helpful tbh) and they even advised to replace it with some Artic Silver or something simular, Artic silver 5 is currently on amazon for £4.95 as an 'add on' Item so cheaper and FOC delivery with orders over £20 :)

Yep just finished my build & can confirm this, if you do go with the thermal paste on the cooler and still use a little thermal paste, I'd say use half or less than normal. Had to reseat mine after I'd missed the retention ring (no instructions on the cooler btw, seems a mix between the two designs here (http://www.asetek.com/company/support/installation-guides). Very simple if you've attached a cooler like this before. I ended up cleaning it all off and just applying some MX-4.

Found the rad fans not really suitable for pull unless you want to use it as an intake. The outer casing frame is not completely solid so they will flex and bend a little and with the weight of the rad wasn't worth it for me so switched them inside as push exhaust. Also found no fan screws with the bundle, (rad screws and plenty of washers though) luckily fan screws had been provided with my case (Enthoo Luxe).

So far so good, haven't pushed the system yet, but idle temps are around 25c @ 4.2ghz (with modest chassis cooling). If you order a 980 gtx with the bundle and receive a secondary copy of The Division, it unfortunately cannot be swapped, (and both offers are unfortunately via UPlay rather than Steam) but you can always give/swap the code with a friend etc..

Tested with the Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti Xtreme last night and with BF4 Ultra settings was getting between 160 and 200 fps (albeit at 1080p) so really impressed there. Love the motherboard so far, Bios is so nice to navigate, looks really nice and the biggest surprise so far is the inbuilt sound which is really really impressive. Beats the Xonar DG card I was using before anyway!

What's the point of including a game when it doesn't come with a graphics card? I guess you can then choose your own, then sell the two copies of the Division


The game comes free with the Asus motherboard, OCUK aren't giving it away.

This seems a really deal. But if you wait until the end of the year, the next generation of CPUs and GPUs will be here (probably - I hope). I am holding off an upgrade for this.


​well, computer prices fall all the time. but you can upgrade the components if you have to have the best gear on sale. BTW, this gear it top spec atm. hot

Windows 10 is NOT great. You really think it's great when Microsoft can install anything they like via an 'update' and you have no ability to refuse it?
Please articulate your concerns in a manner less like a paranoid conspiracy addled teenager.
It's a great OS.
No, it's not a great OS. How does wanting the ability to decide what can and cannot be installed on a Personal Computer make that commenter paranoid? There are any number of reasons not to want automatic updates such as limited bandwidth, compatibility issues and a preference for a version of software before the update to name just a few. How about you consider your responses so you don't come across like a narrow minded fool?
My response is considered. There are fools on this thread, believe me. I am not one.
If you want go through life thinking Microsoft are "victimising" you then there are forums for that. A deal site is not one.
You are either very ignorant about computers, or a troll.
Build software teams for a living (and a good living it is too) and have also launched two successful startups and worked in Silicon Valley.
Unlike you, I actually know what I am talking about and can see Microsoft for what they are; a collection of intelligent people attempting to bring new products to market and fulfill consumer demand. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
However you couldn't possibly comprehend the level of future facing technology being envisaged by the Microsoft R&D team. It would blow your mind.
Mentally you are a juvenile who does not understand business or the leaps in thinking required to innovate.
You are either very ignorant about computers, or a troll.
Yeh, juvenile. You have no idea what you are talking about.
