im planning to get the non artic tomahawk board to match the red theme i have, but overwatch for £6 does make me consider getting a white mobo, is there any difference but colour?


Confident theres not, i was going to buy the black one (was in my basket at amazon) but since my case is fully enclosed its not such an issue if its white for me.

Interestingly the problem im having is finding a graphics card as the rx580 which i want is oos everywhere so i just preordered with amazon

The whole point of a mATX mobo, is that it's small, and therefore isn't going to have all the full fat features of a normal board. It does have 4 dimm slots though. Anyone wanting to run SLI or CF will want a more beefier setup anyway.
Hmm hard sell with no sli or 7.1
... but I guess it's a gimped 370 that'll suit some people's needs.
excellent deal thanks! :D

ROFL! How's your Ryzen? My 1700 is at 3.9 (plan 4.0 next week) with memory etc working beautifully.

All good mate, 3900 @ 1.37v using p-state (LLC3) with 3466CL14 RAM @1.4v. SOC 1.140v

All nice and stable on the C6H Beta 9945 UEFI (Agesa 1006).

I'm not touching it now until some official UEFI gets released. 4ghz for me just not worth my while, too much voltage jump and don't need the performance.

Good luck.

Im not about to start getting into a debate with somebody who starts off with cheap jabs like a petulant child.There are plenty of videos showing the higher frame rates on Ryzen rigs due to the CPU usage. I can absolutely guarantee there videos showing the 7700 at 100% CPU usage. Go look it up.Have a great day!


There goes your credibility. Confirmed no idea what you are talking about. Ryzen has never benchmarked higher than the 7700k. Even against the 1800x the bench is at least 15% higher.

Thanks for playing!

Whats to Giggle at? ~The IPC of the intel is slightly better (currently) But surely everybody can see the intel 7700k is running constantly between 90-100% usage in the likes of BF1. While the 1700-1800 Ryzen is hitting around 40% which is the reasoning behind having higher minimum frame rates. Anybody building a new rig for any purpose shouldn't be put off by either Intel or AMD. What they should ignore is people trying to bash AMD for absolutely no reasons at all.
I don't think you know enough about computers?
No 7700k has ever ran at 90% for a modern game that's on the market.
There is no such thing as a bottleneck yet for the 7700k. In 2 years time you might be right, but as it stands right now the latest intel chips SLAUGHTER games with ease.

No 7700k has ever ran at 90% for a modern game that's on the market. The 4700k only hits 80% on heavy load and that's 3 generations old.

I mean you could at least try to support your argument with benchmarks and factual data.
No amount of factual data can sway an internet debate, Steve! Your posts made it apparent that you dislike AMD and I hate seeing a one-sided approach go uncontested. I urge anybody in the market to buy a new PC to consider both AMD and Intel CPUs at their pricepoint, and to do the research into benchmarks themselves. CPU development has been stale for the past decade until AMD released Ryzen this year. Although the likes of the Pentium still have a place, at most consumer pricepoints the double/triple thread count that Ryzen offers over Intel is a very convincing alternative.
steve_bezerker
Why do you talk like the market is evolving rapdiddly?
Because for the first time in a decade, the release of Ryzen and its increased core counts is genuinely a game-changer for consumer CPUs. Current Intel CPUs may be 0-10% faster in some games. But Ryzen's are still more than enough to run today's games smoothly, all the while offering 2-3 times more threads for the same price, which is already starting to make a difference. If you're building a system solely for today's applications then you can even get by with a budget system. More than that and you're hoping for some degree of future-proofing, too. Especially if you're thinking of spending... oooh.... £120+ on a motherboard.

Having multiple cores and threads does what exactly? Ryzen looks great on the box, useful for the future blah blah.

It's going to be another 2 years before DX12 fully takes off with gaming.

I didn't claim AMD Ryzen specifically wasn't up to scratch, the guy I responded to was suggesting that the only way to build new PC's was with Ryzen at the helm, and that is quite frankly the opposite of the truth.

In terms of Price vs Performance at 1080p the Intel is still outperforming Ryzen's - easily.

It might not make any difference to the 'google chrome' user - but for any of us who care enough to want a decent rig for gaming (especially when looking at a Z270 mobo) you want the best performance possible in your games - Which is still the 7700k.

I thought if you were building a new system AMD Ryzen was the way to go now.
I giggled a bit. Ryzen is cute but Intel is still king.
The only people who are really interested in Ryzen are people who need the hyper-threading for rendering.

Thanks for that. Are there any goods deals around for around a fiver with plenty of inclusive minutes. Don't use much mobile data or text, mainly minutes. Thanks in advance if anyone has any suggestions.
Word of caution based on my experience. Switched to Plusnet after MSE deal and sorry to say the mobile service is awful. Unable to make or receive calls as normal, have 2-3 failed attempts it gets through. Long wait for customer service over phone and chat lines crashing. social media response is quick but no very helpful they just wanted to send a new sim to fix the problems without doing proper diagnosis. Within 14 days cool off period, disconnected and ported back to my old provider.
Others may not be having problems but this is my personal experience so far.
Thinking of taking up this deal as Virgin have just emailed me, my unlimited minutes are going down to 300 and my tariff going up from £5 to £6. Why is this voted cold please, are there better deals for me around. Thanks
Plusnet use EE network which is better than ID who use the three network.

Apparently reviews are very good on Trustpilot:https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.1pmobile.com
Seriously thinking of switching over for my main phone.
11 reviews with 7 of them from one review people seems a bit dodgy, a lot of the reviews seem to have been written by the same person after reading them.
I always skip the ones with one review. Chech those with more reviews.

Now, don't get me wrong, they're still relatively new and probably selling at a loss.

I ordered a mobo and cpu from ebuyer due to this deal, arrives today.

The I7 7700K was reduced by £54.34 and the mobo (Asus Intel ROG STRIX Z270H ) had a free game and headset with it.

Thought overall it was quite a good deal with the cash back at £80 if I get it
I contacted them after reading your comment that's why I didn't include it in the original post. But you're right the terms and conditions either haven't been written very well by not including clauses that state whether they can be bought from different retailers and not including ('s) at the end of "Invoice" etc. OR the customer service rep I spoke to was telling me pork pies to get my custom.

I can not see it cutting the mustard legally if declined on terms the defence of, someone I don't know, with the username Perryibanez said it would be alright.

This made me chuckle more than it should have. That damn Perryibanez and his shenanigans.
Perryibanez
In the past when I have taken advantage of these cashback deals it didn't matter where you purchased the items from. You just needed a serial number and proof of purchase. Although I did think it was weird that they gave a specific list of suppliers that you have to purchase the items from as in the past I have bought Graphics cards from Ebay and claimed games or cashback on them.
But just to be sure I contacted customer support to clarify and they told me that you can purchase the items from different companies. They just have to match according to their compatibility. Every Motherboard has a total of 4 CPUs you can choose from which makes sense as you aren't going to match a Rampage V Edition 10 Motherboard with an i5 6600k for example.
Hopefully that clears any confusion. :)

No confusion as deal on legalities all the time and language of coupling and singular invoice is fairly explicit unless you have got Asus to override that in writing and if you have well done.

I would not recommend others take your word for it without also covering themselves by also getting in writing from Asus to themselves.

You will have to excuse my dubious nature with no online support answering questions at this time and no earlier mention that you asked them! Further, I can not see it cutting the mustard legally if declined on terms the defence of, someone I don't know, with the username Perryibanez said it would be alright. But then have seen someone on here previously suggesting you can buy two get one free from different stores (pretty sure they were having a giraffe).

since I wouldn't want to lose out on cashback AND also not be able to return merch after 30 days I think it's safer to buy all from same source

thanks for sharing
I'll put a few things on a watchlist with 3 camels and if they all come down in price within the promo period I might just get some new hardware

Not a bad idea. Personally I buy all my parts from Amazon because their customer service is amazing. I've only ever bought parts outside of Amazon twice. Once on Ebay and once from DABS which is now BTShop.

Because its old tech and rather useless, can get a Z270 for the same price and a kabylake cpu to go with it for the same price as a skylake cpu
Has it ever occurred to you that somebody might already have a skylake cpu and might just want to upgrade their motherboard. The logic on this site is just plain ridiculous
You know what is really ridiculous? The fact that someone with a skylake cpu upgrading their motherboard has literally a 0.0001% chance of happening, get real.
They do have a point, sometimes stuff happens, and your motherboard for example can die early, so this would be good as a replacement.
Yes, as I said, 0.0001% chance.
Get you too, but hate it when people randomly use statistics like that, like idiots who say I'm 99.9999% sure as if they really are, just say its rare or unlikely, lol

While unlikely, to be fair I did that with my sandybridge. Had a 2500k (was only £2 more expensive than non k at the time) and a dirt cheap H61 chipset board - upgraded to a similar board on Z77 for overclocking later down the line. Though like I said, few and far between scenario.

I suppose you've surveyed everyone who owns a skylake PC what if someone has bought an itx motherboard and would like to move to atx. Stop thinking in such narrow minded way it's pretty childish

Ordered it, got mine the next day, the keyboard is brilliant! you can feel the build quality when you start to use it.
the board is also very nice, the attention to detail is spot on. So glad I got it at this price, I was originally going for the MSI z270 m3 but glad I didnt.

i haven't had a chance to compete the money back claim or the game code. going to give it a go tomorrow.
How long did it take in the end to get your Ghost Recon code? I've just requested mine, was really hoping to get it before the weekend...
still under review lol oO
Well there goes my chance of getting it in time for the weekend :( That sucks, they should make the process way more seamless! Thanks for letting me know though.
Isn't down to MSI.
They have to contact the retailer and make sure everything adds up and check the uploaded invoice etc.
Otherwise people would exploit the hell out of it.
I suppose that makes sense, but is disappointing! Fingers crossed it's sooner than later.

i only registered and applied for the code on Saturday and it arrived next day - dont forget to put a date in you calendar to claim the £25 cashback

I just got mine this morning too (email came around 2am) so maybe they do them in batches?

Not completely sure if this [url=http://rog.asus.com/articles/maximus-motherboards/whats-the-difference-between-z170-h170-b150-and-h110-chipset-motherboards]http://rog.asus.com/articles/maximus-motherboards/whats-the-difference-between-z170-h170-b150-and-h110-chipset-motherboards - is completely accurate, but the Z170 chipset has a lot more features than the B150 chipset, namely it looks as though overclocking is the big selling point of the Z170s.
Also take into the account the ITX size of the Biostar means that it is even more compact than the micro-ATX of the ASUS you linked.

If it wasn't for Ryzen, I'd have certainly picked this up at this price.

Looks pretty good if you're planning a sff intel build or want to downsize your current rig into a smaller case

i was thinking of getting the 1600 but truly only for surfing/gaming a quad core does the job...i wish pc's were optimized like consoles to push games at using full 6/8 cores but i guess it is what it is as the consoles were built for that reason only for perfect gaming experience

I wouldn't say consoles were a perfect gaming experience (as an XB1 owner), if you want to run 720p-900p in 30fps they're pretty perfect though :)

I wouldn't use Alza personally, for the sake of £10. CCL with 1% Quidco is not much more expensive.

for those who have said ryzen was rushed out - it wasn't. live versions of the b350 class mobos where out in 2016. What ever was the cause of the delay it allowed amd to do another respin of ryzen and bump it up to 3.6ghz.

Gaming on the ryzen should get better and better as new games come onto the market

Think this is the cheapest I have seen an X99 board for. Maybe mix this with a second hand 5820K as CPU prices are silly since Brexit - I paid £410 for a 5820K + Asus x99A mobo just after the vote and before the price changes.

I would be interested in seeing what a similar priced Ryzen look like

You'd have to be crazy to put money here.
Why?
Is something wrong with x99? I'm considering one but I see so many people saying it's "dead" (although idek why, somebody please explain)

It's really just down to price of mobo/RAM/CPU that push it way north of a well specced Ryzen combo.

For that reason and given the competition from AMD I really see no reason at all to go X99 for a new build.

Better money wise yet but bottom of the barrel Chinese components, and not even worth the £100 just ask any electrical engineer friend of family member, they'll give you the heads up, it's the same with all boards made last few gens now just cheap crap with flash vanity attachments that's why failure rates are so high, asus msi, gigabyte etc are to blame here not so much intel or amd just greedy board manufacturers, my advice by used z97 or maybe find a decent z170 used but there failure rate was high.
Z97 and Z170 aren't even AM4 boards. What a bizarre comment? Heat added.
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.

Better money wise yet but bottom of the barrel Chinese components, and not even worth the £100 just ask any electrical engineer friend of family member, they'll give you the heads up, it's the same with all boards made last few gens now just cheap crap with flash vanity attachments that's why failure rates are so high, asus msi, gigabyte etc are to blame here not so much intel or amd just greedy board manufacturers, my advice by used z97 or maybe find a decent z170 used but there failure rate was high.
Z97 and Z170 aren't even AM4 boards. What a bizarre comment? Heat added.

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.

Ignore the intel shills, why would you wait for a r5 quad core, when this is a 8c/16t...
Yes, ignore all those Intel shills recommending that people wait to get a different AMD CPU instead...
Great cpu, easily overclock to match 1800x. Ignore the intel shills, why would you wait for a r5 quad core, when this is a 8c/16t...This is the best price if you have compatible parts. I recommend a Taichi motherboard with Corsair LPX Black 3200mhz ddr4. Works straight out the box.
As well as motherboard availability issues that will take about another 4 weeks to resolve
While the price is decent, unless you're desperate for a new PC, I'd wait a a few more weeks for the Ryzen R5 series which will include the 4 and 6 core CPUs.

There are also a lot of motherboard and DDR4 memory compatibility issues right now which gives more reason to wait until these are ironed out.

There are no issues with the site. The earliest you can make an eligible purchase is the 10th of March, and you need to wait 30 days to make a claim, so the cashback redemption facility will open on the 9th of April, as stated on the site as follows:
Asus
Valid for purchases from selected dealers during 10th of March to 31st of March 2017.
Cashback redemption open from April 9th to the 31st of May 2017.

I had a suspicion it may be something like that but was too lazy to bother looking into it. Thanks for taking the time to clarify :)

It's hit and miss which EE rep will give you it, I had to ring back a few times, some are not even aware of this, while others just give u it without asking.

Thanks for this! I got in touch this morning via live chat. First they downgraded my plan, minutes and data and offered me a reduction in price of £1!!! Then I dropped in about the E2save deal and he said he couldn't offer anything close to that. I said I was really disappointed as I have been a customer with them for years and he said he would talk to his manager. After 1 minute 20 seconds at 8.15am, he told me his manager would do me a deal of unlimited texts and calls and 2GB data for £7.49. Just wish I had done this a while ago and I suggest don't give up, even if they say they cannot do anything for you to start with.


Good to hear you had a successful outcome. Looks like they are matching the plusnet offers as yours is very similar to their deal. Did you manage to squeeze a little more and get calls in EU included and get some data in EU as well?

Has anyone got their Gigabyte Gaming 5 yet? I ordered on the 25th, but it didn't ship, and seems to be out of stock everywhere.
Nope not in stock anywhere, same here with the K7. I heard some etailers are getting stock today but they'll be gone to preorders.

I've been watching a few and they say today, but I agree, they'll be gone just as quick.

Just as well sticking with the Amazon one for the price, Scan now list this board for £205, really happy I snagged it for £179.

It is looking like an i7 ish quad core will be under £200.
Eventually.


They are just a plain rumors, from uknown sorces, would take them seriously.


Wccftech are not a reliable source, they should never be quoted if you want to be taken seriously. It's obvious that buying now isn't the best idea, wait for real world benchmarks and see if there's movement in Intel's pricing, if the benchmarks and pricing are favourable to AMD.

I've already bought DDR4 RAM ready for whichever platform I choose. It's almost doubled in price since I got it. No way they'd drop the RAM pricing with this competition arising and it was already inflated for the Christmas period. So I'm quids in already.
Slightly 'leaked' pre order prices table for Ryzen chips,maybe 12 days short of release.
An i7 equivalent cpu is gonna be under £200 as stated.
If you have a denial problem here it is probably 'buyers remorse'.
Anybody buying a Z2 series mobo at this juncture must have the attention span of a frog.
And Shkapars can barely speak English. let alone Geek.Opininion worthless.

I think to regain confidence to convince people that there is not any sneaky way why not use the method where you could not charge people, unless they really mean it.
At the moment people will need to supply their full credit card detail and you could charge them anytime without the owner of credit cards realizing it. Or if they realize it is already too late as it happens a long time ago and fighting to get it back will just wasting their valuable time.
A few comes to mine:
- Payment through PayPal
- Payment using BACS (e.g Bank transfer)
- Or use like PAYG system, limit the basics service, people need to top it up when they need further services.
I have thrown mine to the bin I might want to get one again if I am sure there is no sneaky way of charging me.

I've been with them as a second sim from the start. Voice not very good if it works at all. I always said texts with the app are ok but recently they've stopped working, wouldn't be so bad if you knew they weren't getting to the recipient. Data is as three so for me data is still good.
We offer Premium Voice which works off cellular network as opposed to VOIP and is offered for free with paid plans. I have provided a link which helps explains it's functions. Please feel free to take a look.

rip poor value intel builds featuring chips like the OP's.
I guess that depends on thread use.
The performance of the chip was tested in CPU-z with the in-built bench utility. This utility helps evaluate the single and multi-threaded performance of the processor running on the PC. The Ryzen 5 1600X had a score of 1888 in single-threaded performance bench and 12544 points in multi-threaded performance bench. In the task manager, we can see that the chip has boost clock enabled since it is clocking beyond it’s base frequency (e.g. 3.56 GHz).
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Vs Core i5-7600K Processor Performance Comparison
For comparison purposes, we used a Core i5-7600K running in our test rig and loaded the same CPU-z version (v1.78.1 x64). The quad core (non hyper-threaded) chip achieved a score of 2130 in single-threaded and 8206 in multi-threaded.
Though the i5 system was using DDR4 ram clocked at 3600 MHz, not sure what the 1600x supports?

if it's an accurate leak then builders who choose ryzen will have a better supported socket, cheaper mobos, cheaper overclocking support, more cores and single threaded performance similar to haswell/skylake.

Hi, sorry to hijack this thread but I've been looking to purchase a new desktop pc with intel i5 . Everyone on here seems to know about so much so I was looking for some advice. I purchased a laptop last year after some very good recommendations given by HUKD members and got a bargain!
I don't want anything fancy for the desktop tower, just something for basic tasks, photo editing and that will last a good few years. I have been looking at Intel i5 4460, 8GB RAM, SSD. But the Intel processors are making the price very high and someone recommended AMD instead. What would be a good AMD equivalent processor?
I have looked at Ebuyer and a few other site for ready-built towers but they are expensive. I was hoping to get something for under £400. I have asked my local pc shop for a price to build one but that is also working out expensive so I was thinking of buying the most expensive parts myself and asking them to assemble it. Any thoughts?
If you can wait until the release of AMD's new Ryzen chips, which should be early next month, then there will be some benchmarks and actual pricing available for those and advice will be easier. In turn the AMD release should cause price drops on intel chips (as long as AMD are competitive).
How legit this is im not 100% sure but apprently Ryzen is out on the 28th?http://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-7-1800x-1700x-1700/

I was allowing some fudge factor as the date could be shipping from the factory or ready to ship from store... plus a little to run benchmarks etc.
