Are you referring to the lesser speced gaming k3 rather that the gaming 3?

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

Wccftech simply reproduced the pre order price chart.
They are by far more reliable and accurate than any source I have seen on this site,
and currently that includes YOU.
If you wish to be taken seriously, post a source and figures that dispute said prices.

This is the news so far.
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.

"Feel free to send me a Private Message should you need any assistance."
Thanks for the offer.
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.
Please explain the method used to convince customer there is no sneaky way of charging them.
Users are always more than welcome to downgrade their plans whenever desired. Now regarding another form of payment, we certainly accept PayPal. I have provided a link which will explain how to downgrade your account along with another which will elaborate more on PayPal. Please take a look at your convenience.

"Feel free to send me a Private Message should you need any assistance."

Thanks for the offer.
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.

Please explain the method used to convince customer there is no sneaky way of charging them.

to be fair the voice is shoddy but the data is ok
also they charged me but after I asked for a refund they gave it back no problem. customer service is ok. there was no activation charge if you got it on the fb offer so I got 2 for free but 1st was 5 quid
Feel free to PM me should you have any questions or need any assistance.

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.

Not free, you need to pay the £5 'activation' fee.
...also as above you need to use their phone/messaging apps.
The activation fee is a one-time fee, however, the plan itself is free. Also, users may use the native dialer with Premium Voice service. I have provided a link which provides the plans we offer and another explaining how Premium Voice works. Feel free to have a look.

AVOID LIKE A PLAGUE
Just be aware. Unless you do not need to supply your credicard detail, avoid like a plague.
They have a sneaky way of charging you.
Other have pointed out
- Use a garbage app for messaging couldn't just send normal texts. So your phone will be blocked with their apps.
- the £5 'activation' fee. Before you even realize how useless they are
I have this simcard, got charged for a a few months before I even realize it. I cancel the DD and Simcard go to the bin.
Feel free to send me a Private Message should you need any assistance.

thanks again OP, mine arrived today, boxed and sealed. The only thing missing was the instructions (who cares?). I have some DDR4 ram on the way but this was a great buy for a £50 - £60 motherboard.


If you need the manual you can find it on the gigabyte product page online... I always need it for the front panel connections lol

If the people who purchased this are looking for quality ram at a good price, Amazon have HyperX Fury 4gb sticks of DDR4 2133mhz at £23.59 each so I picked up two. Bit of a wait on them though.

If FX chips drop significantly in price due to the new AMD cpus, you could build a very decent low cost machine with this motherboard
apart from the ddr3 ram it seems, any ideas if ddr3 ram will ever drop back in price?

Unless a store wants to clear out old stock, probably not.

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.

Had this model since around may, been fine and has plenty of bios options available.
Can you update the BIOS without a cpu?
No. You'll need to buy a cheap skylake and flash the BIOS before it will take a Kaby Lake.
that's the downside hehe
anyway why buy kaby when you can get sky for cheaper and have almost the same performance? Look at the reviews - 7000 series is just 6000 series slightly tweaked. I doubt you'll be able to tell the difference

I think it 15 days is to counter people getting cash back on products than returning.
Yeah, cheers, it seems so, but this may cancel that out.

Yes and buried in there is this: "Claimant can only claim for cashback once 15 days have passed since the time of purchase".

You have to be a flippin lawyer just to get some cash back!

Actually was in the process of looking for the parts to buy a new pc, this saves me the trouble. Even out of the box this thing will blow my 7 year old tower out of the water, anyone know how long it takes to get one of these shipped though? Ordered a chair from there last month and it took over a week :/
Should be a few days nothing too unusual in the build - give them a call and find out would be my advice

Thanks for that, i contacted them and they came back within the hour, 7 working days was what they quoted and i got it in 6, very happy with it so far, blows my old machine out of the water ^_^

Still feeling smug with my Gigabyte Z170xp for £50
Absolutely stunning machine now with a cheap i5 6600k, ssd & 5 hard drives raided, absolutely love it.

Yep and the funny thing is, I bet 95% of people will use exactly the same features on the Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI as they would the ASUS Maximus VIII Hero. People get sucked into the 'Rogue' marketing and fancy looks. Gigabyte have UK warranty base as well, the only way you get that with ASUS is if you buy from Overclockers UK only. :)

If you're willing to take a gamble on MSI products (I recommend you buy through OCUK or Amazon, that way you'll have no problems if it fails under manufacturer warranty) as well as the free ssd, MSI are also doing a cashback promotion currently on the Gaming M5 and others in the Z270 series. This board is worth £30 cashback. You have to post a review to qualify and you can only buy from Amazon, OCUK, Scan, Novatech, BT or CCL, but only needs to be 100 words minimum. At current prices, factoring in the cost of the SSD and adding it to the cashback, this board is effectively costing you about £75 quid.

If you're willing to take a gamble on MSI products (I recommend you buy through OCUK or Amazon, that way you'll have no problems if it fails under manufacturer warranty) as well as the free ssd, MSI are also doing a cashback promotion currently on the Gaming M5 and others in the Z270 series. This board is worth £30 cashback. You have to post a review to qualify and you can only buy from Amazon, OCUK, Scan, Novatech, BT or CCL, but only needs to be 100 words minimum. At current prices, factoring in the cost of the SSD and adding it to the cashback, this board is effectively costing you about £75 quid.

Might sweeten the deal for some.

The remote wasn't broken. You keep it, get the TV replaced. You are where you started. Go figure

Wise guy, have a nice day putting up with shoddy customer service, one of the accesories is the wifi connector, guess thats not important.

Does this support multi threading or is that only in i7 processors now?
A friend has asked me to build an 8 screen trader PC multitaskting many tasks simultaneously.
No, it is not multi threaded, 4 cores, 4 threads.
not multithreaded... 4 cores 4 threads... that IS multithread... as in more than 1
do you mean hyperthreaded ?

Yes, hyperthreading. I said multi threading because the i5 has 1 thread per core, the i7 has 2 so it has multiple threads per core.

Multi threading has been around since the 1950's. Intel have been using SMT since the Pentium 4, about 15 years ago, so I think you should be fine.

I cant decide what to get now. I have been patiently waiting for the 6th gen prices to drop and to grab a good motherboard+cpu i5 bundle but prices barely budged. Now I'm seeing the prices of 7th gen pretty much the same as 6th gen, this doesn't make sense!
they prob wont drop... you may be able to get some used deals tho..

Still it doesnt make sense. In some instances I found that buying the i5 6600k alone is costing more than an i5 7600k.

I know used will be cheaper but prices for 6th gen should be dropping, not costing more than the next gen that has just come out. Totally baffled by this.




I'm on 5th gen and prices are going up!!!

You're not going to find a cheaper board for running pfsense, just bung in a decent NIC and you're away. What sort of prices can we find a decent case and power supply for now?


yep!! chucked in a Intel quad (see above) £32 all seems good. got this running on a low level Silverstone case for about 25 quid and psu was about £14 for a massively powerful router setup. would never pay silly money for a black box router. run network to access points anyway..
it's 33 quid. if you don't know what your buying I agree don't buy it. I've had windows 7 working on 2gb ram and surfing the net and some basic stuff was ok..

Very slow, unless you have a very specific need and know exactly what you are buying don't buy this.

not sure what you're using 'open nat' for, just looked in my linux repository and can't find any reference :p
hope you're not a windows user ;)


i would have a rebellion on my hands from the kids if the xbox had a strict Nat!! Oh also running unbuntu from a memory stick on this so as can flash the drive with alternate firmware. put it on an internal USB header

English version? - that's surely a giveaway - I thought they were made in Pencoed, Wales!

I've bought Arduino boards from gearbest which proudly claimed "Made in Italy" but I took that to be a somewhat overly-accurate but understandable "Chinese copy"- I certainly couldn't tell my 意大利製造 from my 中國製造



They are made all over now including Japan officially, but I agree this is a knock off

Ordered the MSI Pro Gaming Carbon Z270 a day before they announced this, was gonna send it back but contacted MSI and they said that the M2 SSD's get shipped on the 15th of each month, but for January orders it will be February. So be warned if you're getting this as part of a new build you wont receive the SSD for a while!

...I think intel are robbing us the new i7 is around £50 more than the older one and the only difference is a 200mhz bump in speed that any idiot can do within 2 seconds.

You need think no longer, and be rest assured and safe in the knowledge that Intel are indeed robbing you. There is zero noticeable real world difference between the 6700k and 7700k, so congratulations on your "new" purchase. ;)
but as i hadn't stated a retailer due to it being a m/f promo, then i could not put in a delivery price, hence why i did not. its only customary to put a delivery price in with the post if its a specific retailer, the price was simply put there as a rough guide as to why i thought it was a good deal, as ive said its then up to the consumer which retailer they use to fulfill this deal.
mcon
i would assume so.... (_;) isnt that how you get your goods from online retailers? sorry but really dont understand the question. are you asking if they do delivery? or how much is delivery? or method of delivery? it would really be helpful if you were a bit more consice with your question, also i have only given a heads up on the deal, which is why i didnt include retailers and only gave the scan link because someone asked where could they get one for that price?. as for specific retailers, well thats you guys job to find the one you prefer. ;)
With this site it is normal to include the cost of delivery. You stated it was £2 cheaper than the £195 queried by ChiefWA2 but that didn't take into account the cost of delivery so that wasnt really true. Didnt think it needed much explanation but obviously wrong.

There is an article on Techspot that compared benchmarks of skylake i7 K against tests they'd done previously based on sandybridge i7 k and in most tests there was only a 16% increase. Considering we're now 4 generations on, in terms of performance there isn't much in it. CPU clock speed seems to be the main determining factor for performance in most applications.

Today's generation of chips are however significantly more efficient and utilise less power equating to less heat and a quieter computer. This can also be said of chipsets, besides features, from a performance aspect there's little gain although efficiency is improved.

I had issues with an Asus board in the past, so like most builders, you stick to the brands that have brought you trouble-less joy!
I was reading up on Kabylake yesterday... I can't remember who wrote the article, but they tested 6700k against the Kabylake equivalent and found that the performance was near identical. Obviously it's just one article, so can't base my entire opinion on it.
Of course the performance is the same as architecturally Kabylake=Skylake.
The only thing which has changed is the iGPU's media capabilities:http://images.anandtech.com/doci/10959/1-11_575px.png
The only other differences is that the 14nm node has matured a bit and the max overclock is now more likely to be 4.9GHz vs 4.8GHz for Skylake. In other words, the kind of thing we used to get from CPU steppings.
On the desktop* these really should have been called i5-6690K and i7-6790K like Intel did with the Haswell refresh, or maybe i5-6695K and i7-6795K where the last 5 indicates the new iGPU.
Still, in the GPU world this kind of re-branding happens all the time: Nvidia are notorious for it (the low end GeForce GT 630 could be Kepler 1st gen, Kepler 2nd gen, or Ferni), but AMD do it too.
*Mobile Kabylake is more interesting as the process improvements means the 15W parts which used to throttle like mad are more likely to sustain their boost which can make a big difference especially in some of the extra-thin designs which can barely keep the CPU cool.

Thanks for that Gkains, interesting stuff :)

Haha - yeah, I'd never use Gigabyte again for the same reason.
Agreed about Kabylake - looks to be a slightly faster clocked Skylake (which can be achieved on Skylake K chips anyhow). Won't be upgrading this time round :)

Even the specs say:

Types of memory which can be used with the product.
DDR3-SDRAM, DDR3L-SDRAM, DDR4-SDRAM
Non-ECC

1066,1333,1600,1866,2133 MHz
As long as you do not go above 1.65v its perfectly safe.
Yeah, intel doesn't officially support standard DDR3 in skylake setups, in fact they say it could damage the CPUs: http://wccftech.com/skylake-does-not-support-ddr3-damage-ddr3l-only/
Ehhh isn't the DDR3 that skylake supports actually DDR3L, a lower voltage version? In which case whacking in any old DDR3 sticks you have lying around might not work, I'm sure someone that knows more about this/this particular board can chime in but I'm fairly certain you'd end up having to buy newer ram anyway

ASUS is a great brand I love their mobo's have just bought a maximus viii hero arrived today actually :) This is a good deal bearing in mind you can't overclock without the z170 chipset so don't buy an intel unlocked cpu to go with this. Also no sli (multiple nvidia cards) only crossfire (multiple amd cards). Good brand, good price, ideal for entry level gamer not interested in overclocking. Heat

I've got this board, what 40mm fan did you get and did you see any benefits?
Grab one if it drops again. I've had one since last March, as Asus were running a cashback promo. Along with an i5 6500 (and some Noctua fans) it's been the coolest, quietest and most stable PC I've had.

Yup, made me think Grade B, probably just a few capacitors missing and a burning smell, nothing to worry about!
