Thanks OP - worked for me as per post #16.

If it's cold for almost all of you, then fine, I am not worried at all... Thought that extra 250MB with NO CHANGE of price and lenghth of the contract is more like deal for me than buying some old junk Nokia 3310 :) You probably don't understand it ;)
Extra 250mb now showing in balance :)
BRILLIANT. Dont think people understood this post. I first chatted with BT and they said it was only for new customers but today I followed the instructions at #16 and it worked great. Basically I changed my existing plan with the 500mb to the 750mb and it didn't change my contract length. Same price too. FANTASTIC

Changed! Nice to see that it states 'No change to contract length'

How do you know if a memory card is fake? I've ordered one and I'm keen to find out how I can check of its fake or genuine. All help appreciated. Many thanks.

been using it for years, ran it yesterday and it's all good :)
took about 3 hours to run since it's checks every sector on the card, read and write 40mb read and 20mb write

I've ordered from these guys in the past and had a fake memory card. Refuse to purchase anything from them again.

The one I ordered from them (not this one, the replacement for this) was fine.

There are people in Amazon comments who claim to have had these fake from Amazon. Not market, themselves. So what can you do? Just have to take a chance, buy it, and sent it back if it is.

I assume this is OK for a phone? - want some decent music storage.

Heat either way.

Better than Lexar and Sandisk in my experience*. Not tried other brands.


*to be fair, my experience of the other brands is a few years old. I can't in all honest say their current cards are not good. But I *can* state that this Samsung card is good because I have 4. :D

not worth it. Get a used 5930k from cex for £310 instead.
Good price although with Broadwell-e due to be announced, and potentially released, next week we should see more deals in haswell-e like the 5820k

I agree, its worth waiting a week or 2 as the prices should return to the £250 mark.

Whats the best CPU for this and is it worth upgrade from AMD 1100t? Thanks
This is the list of compatible CPUs for the board.
I think the i7 4790k is the fastest chip for this board but people who are more familiar with the Xeon range may know better.
If you have a Phenom II x6 1100T you can compare the passmark score to the commercial i7 4790K in this link.

From what I've read up on Xeons vs i7s, I've been led to believe that they're pretty much identical chips with the Xeons lacking the integrated GPU of the i7s.
I believe my E3-1240 v3 is comparable to the 4770 (non-'K' version).
Since I have had this mobo I have trouble shutting down. The PC re-starts on its own after shut down. I can then shut down from the login screen. I have tried everything to cure this to no avail. Windows 7 ultimate. Pentium G3258, latest firmware. :(
Have you tried testing it using Linux?
Just to make sure it's not Windows that causing the issue.

I had a similar issue with an old laptop but I tracked it down to one of the memory modules which sometime played up.

I bought one of these but there doesn't seem to be any overclocking options (using it with the G3258). I'm wondering whether this particular model supports overclocking. Has anyone managed to overclock with it?
Got this board around three months ago and for the first couple of days I couldn't boot as it was saying USB device over current detected. Around day three it finally worked after taking it apart and putting back together several times. It started doing it again this week and I can't get it to work at all.

Without that it's a cracking board for the price.

Combine this with a G3258 and you can overlock it to around 4ghz on the stock cooler

There's no need for calling people names because you think you know better.
The irony being of course that he doesn't know better. He doesn't even come close.
I haven't called anyone names personally here. It was a general term.
You're quite correct; not anyone personally, just ANYONE that buys this deal. You've made yourself sound like a prize pr**k. Congrats.
That's your opinion which is none of my business. I never used any swear words, so you've done yourself a disservice there.
To be fair though, you did say "anyone".
I think we've done this conversation to death, haven't we. I make no apologies for being me. I exaggerated for effect. I believe you should use an M.2 NVMe SSD with this motherboard and the combo of SATA SSD is daft but you can use it on this board or better still use it elsewhere.
What benefit is an M2 SSD honestly going to offer in games. Apart from the occasional open world title (GTA, Bethesda RPG's etc) most games barely make any use of standard SSD's as it is.

It's probably worth pointing out this comes with a:
120GB Kingston V300 SSD
Doom (digital key)
However you look at it I'm sure you can get at least £40 back selling both of the above. That puts it at £90 so not a bad deal for a Z170 Asus board. Unfortunately, newegg reviews are not the best so I'd personally stay clear of that one which is surprising as I've never had an issue with Asus mobo. Nevertheless hot for the price. Thanks for sharing

Any feedback on this motherboard will be appreciated, by myself as well as others..
Built a desktop system for video editing / Lightroom / Photoshop around this board, with an i7-4770K and 32gb RAM. Been rock-solid - don't use it for gaming, but with a GTX 750, it does everything I ask of it. Needed to add a firewire card for capture, but apart from that, a straightforward and stable build. Even though the cpu is unlocked, I run at stock speeds and it is more than adequate for my needs. Audio via a DAC is excellent.

True they are but others are still looking at older 'cheaper' kit that's available..
I think most gamers are on Z170 now
I have the MATX version, really nice board :)
I have it, I've been using it in my main rig for about a year and it has been solid. A few things against it are the killer NIC and the lack of lanes for the m.2 slot meaning you can't fully utilise an NVMe SSD. The killer NIC is fine for me especially if you just install the driver by itself and not the awful software than MSI supply.

An Asus AM1I MOBO and one of the AMD CPUs like the 5350 will be around thus price and is a little more powerful. Sadly micro ATX size instead of mini ITX, but still worth considering for a cheap SSF build.
It'll run much hotter, which is something you'll have to take into account. You won't be passively cooling any current AMD desktop class chips.
That is correct. Thanks for pointing that out. Hadn't considered that might have been a deal-breaker for some.
Think twice, post once.

Yeah, I should consider every single user perspective in the world. I already conceded your point was valid so quit being a c0ck.

I have one of these and also the N3150 version - they are great for Kodi use BUT they have crippled USB 3.0 ports!
Four of the ports are conrtolled by an ASMedia ASM1074 usb hub and it is broken - if a UASP usb device is connected it keeps resetting every ~30 seconds or so. The remaining two ports are also broken and Intel had to issue a special usb driver to cope with a design issue.
If you want to deal with constant USB 3.0 disconnects then OK you have been warned. The new J3710 and J3160 boards still use the same crippled ASMedia ASM1074 chip - don't know if Intel have solved the other USB3.0 issue on these new revisions.
All very disappointing for an otherwise good silent HTPC solution.

I will probably go with the gigabit one then

So there's folk on here who actually think this is a good deal?
Man, i must be poor.
It's quite expensive as those things are, but it's 33% off UK online price, or 40% off high-street price.

Not expensive when you consider carrying (potentially) 10s of thousands of pounds worth of camera body and lenses in it...

Good price, had one of these for nearly 6 months, great spec for the price and not had any issues with it at all.
I love my 5820k :D

Problem isn't the mobo price but the CPU it just keeps going up in price, also if the rumours are true new Broadwell-E CPUs are round the corner with the top of the line having a 10 core, 20 thread count. I'm just hoping once they come out the price of these will fall.

Yeh the CPUs are pretty expensive, although the 5820k is not that much more expensive than an i7-6700k but you do get the extra cores (which will be great if you do any sort of multi-threaded work that is). The 5820k is not too expensive used on the second-hand market or from the second-hand shop on the high street
Good price - I wonder what will come of the news Intel are reducing the consumer chip fabrication...

Ridiculous bundle!
You've got a motherboard with a M.2 Gen 3 slot and you'd use a SATA SSD instead of an M.2 NVMe SSD with it? Seriously? The only reason for the SSD in this bundle is to not use it with this motherboard and use it somewhere else or give it to some one else, otherwise it's redundant in my opinion coupled with this motherboard.
​can u tell us why? just interested that's all

Check out Samsung SM951 and 950 Pro M.2 NVMe performance, that's the reason why, annihilates any SATA SSD. You'd want to use one of those instead of SATA. Yes the sequential read write are 2500MB/1500MB/s + but the IOPS are around 300K. Whichever way you look at it, those M.2 NVMe SSDs waste this SATA based SSD.


​cheers appreciated.
After a bit of research, it appears that SSD is garbage, shocking write speeds and generally recommended to avoid in reviews like most of the new cheaper ones seem to be. So deal looks more like a full price motherboard (£94ish most places) and a £10 SSD to bung in some old laptop.
Quick question....has anyone hooked one of these up with an i5 6400 or i5 6500 and tried the BCLK overclock? Is it still possible to downgrade the firmware to do the Sky OC thing?

What's a sensible (not overpriced) air cooler to match the above CPU to get a speed of 4.0 to 4.5 Ghz?
Really good mobo for the money. I got this a few weeks back from Scan, when they had it bundled with 8gb of DDR4 for the same price roughly.

I'd suggest spending the extra £5 to get the Ultra II for a nippier SSD.

Char23
...if your[sic] willing to shell out for a high quality, longer warranty, faster performance then look out for an 850 EVO, MX100 etc for under £110.

I'm surprised you put the MX100 there, as your "etc" implies at least a short list of SSDs from which you could have chosen. Apparently the 512GB MX100 has only dipped below £130 once since release, and its 3-year warranty is an identical length to this deal's Plus SSD, as well as Sandisk's Ultra II, which is still £90 as a fairly regular price (as opposed to once in a lifetime). The MX100 doesn't have faster performance than the Ultra II, either - they trade blows, with the MX100 sometimes lagging far behind.

Recommending the MX100 at £110 when the Ultra II is £90 is crazy!

Although coincidentally, I was just going to post the link to the £114 Samsung 850 - not bad (although I'm sure the vast majority of people here would get better value from the £90 Ultra II).
ONLY IF !!! :P
This isn't a 'good deal'. It's a pretty regular price (I got an email from eBuyer with the same price today) for a bottom of the range SSD. If you're happy with ANY SSD, which will be better than any mechanical drive, then look out for ~500GB under £80, if your willing to shell out for a high quality, longer warranty, faster performance then look out for an 850 EVO, MX100 etc for under £110.

Edit: the 500GB 850 EVO is £114.02 on Amazon today, this is the cheapest I've seen it anywhere for a few weeks: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-inch-Solid-State-Drive/dp/B00P73B1E4/ref=sr_1_2

Seems like a very good price for a Z170 Motherboard with the following features. - 2x HDMI 2.0 - 2x PCI-E M.2 slots - 1x USB 3.1 Type-C port Only 7 left in stock though.

The Biostar Racing range look colourful, check this out!

You lose an HDMI port and its only 1.4 not 2.0 so no 4K at 60Hz
Only 1 M.2 PCI-E not 2
Max 32GB DDR3 memory, not 64GB DDR4
Crossfire only works at 4x not 8x for the second card and no 3-way crossfire option
No USB 3.1 Type-C port

There are a few other differences but those are the ones which jumped out to me.

But it is £25 cheaper, just need to decide if those missing features are important to you.

Wow a £145 mb for 65 ,do you have a receipt ?
Of course I do, it is not a £145 board anymore, history already but at £65 could not resist. It is end of line and I saw that dropping from the original price to £104 first ,then around £89 and now at least £64 if not even less if you find any. I was lucky to find it as the ticket was still showing £89 but once I had it scanned I could not resist and bought the last 2 during the sunday Logitech wheel bargain. I was actually going to return them but during the ebay 20%evening I was lucky to get a 4790k at £180. For the other one I still need to make a decision what to do. Look around and you might still find one.
this is the item#: 0000127444 @£64.91, any shop should confirm the price and stock for the nearest store or even the customer service could help

Just a word of caution. There are major reliability issues with these boards specifically RAM slots. So, although they are nice and cheap, it may be better to go for something a little better if you don't want the hassle of having to RMA. Something like an Asus z97a for example.
Do you have a link for this information, as generally very good reviews on Amazon and Reevoo
​if you type gigabyte z97 into Amazon you will notice that quite a few varients of the Z97 Gigabyte boards (different model numbers and different prices) all appear to have 190 reviews each which are identical. They are not specific to the board in the post. You are reading reviews of the better/ more expensive boards. Plenty of info on the net about memory problems and never ending boot loops with this board if you are a regular on any of the forums. I understand that a beta Bios has been released in an attempt to try and address this problem but it appears that quite a few people are still suffering from random shut downs, cold start boot loops and dimm failures. It's cheap for a reason.

Those reviews go back a couple of years ,do you have a link to the required fix for the beta BIOS ,as I can find nothing about this on Gigabytes site ,just a link to the news would be really helpful
