Just installed mine, the cpu socket pins are bent... so now it looks like I have to send it back.
You noticed before you tried installing the CPU?

Does it just affect the buying of foreign goods?

Pretty much yeah, unfortunately we buy a hell of a lot from overseas companies.

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.

All reviews posted online at the qualifying resellers must be online during the Promotional Period. Any review found to be live before or after the Promotional Period will be made void.
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. :)

Try re-reading my "person opinion" again and you might discover the answer!
I guess I could go for the MSI z270 carbon, the M5 is probably a bit more expensive than I'd like to shell out

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.

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

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

I got Hero 8 too it push i7 6700k to 4.8ghz love it :D
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!

As mentioned, there is no point waiting for Ryzen if you're looking for a budget gaming build. Ryzen is releasing an 8-core CPU first, which rumour has will be around the £700-800 mark. Now that is actually a good price IF it seriously competes with Intel's £1000 6900k, but we don't really know for sure how much of a run for its money it's going to give it. Regardless, it won't be aimed at the average consumer, it's for enthusiasts and those that actually NEED an 8-core CPU. Most people don't, but plenty will WANT it all the same. Ryzen is also not going to impact the price of lower Intel chips (not initially anyway), because they are aimed at a different market. It MAY impact the 6900k price, but only if it hits it hard on performance.
On the lower tier affordable side of things however, Ryzen is not going to be going down that road for a good 6 months or so yet. Kaby Lake is going to be full fat price on release, and offer negligible performance over Skylake, which makes it a daft purchase unless you simply MUST be on the bleeding edge of tech. The deals on Skylake now and for the foreseeable future make it the ideal path for anyone on a budget and with more sense than money. Everyone else can waste theirs on the latest tech, but they won't be getting good value for performance. Of course, if you can wait 6 months, see what low tier Ryzen brings to the table, otherwise just go with Skylake, you'll be set. :)
But at least we will then be able to see some 3rd party performance stats not AMD cherry picked ones.
And a better decision whether to wait 6 months or jump on skylake/z170.
True, if you can wait it's worth to do so, just to see what happens. I suspect it will be a while before Ryzen is actually available, even the high end version. They've said Q1, but that could be March.
There's great deals to be had on Skylake now, so if you need a system, just go for it. Given the incremental improvements in CPU tech, you'll be good for years with a 6700k. Heck, people are still running Sandy Bridge without too much of an issue!

I've just asked a question but no one seems to be answering. Please can someone help?

I really don't think it matters in respect to long term. There isn't a great deal to separate them, so personally I would just go with the one that you find most pleasing aesthetically. I would probably lean towards Asus due to them having a better BIOS, but Gigabyte are fine in that regard. There is an argument for stepping up to Z270 (Kaby Lake) if your budget can stretch to it, and if you think you will utilise the extra motherboard features. Otherwise, either of these boards will last you a long time.

However you can still order it at that price and Amazon will honour it, so it's not expired and it's £1 cheaper. I've ordered quite a few things before now from Amazon that they've not had in stock and it's still been delivered.
Will be keeping an eye on these as the 270series and AM4 boards should force some price drops.

Can I reuse my ddr3 ram with this (Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1866Mhz Memory Kit CL9)?
You don't want to use DDR3 with Skylake. They don't play nicely.
That isn't true at all, I'm typing on a i5 6600 media center with 8gb DDR3 right now and its been rock solid for a year now.
Everything I've read suggests that you got lucky there. And why would you use a 6600 in a media centre?
It does a bit more than just streaming, and CPU's were cheap last year (£150 on Amazon for this chip). So paired with a 750 Ti its able to play sofa games like Fifa and platformers.
True story. I bought that same CPU last Christmas for £135. I just sold it last week on Ebay for £190.

Number of ports looks low, currently looking at Mobo's for a decent gaming build.
I personally am looking to by something with USB C for longevity and built in WiFi. Although I realize that I will be looking to spend £150 upwards ... just my 2 cents worth :)
Build in wifi for a gaming rig?
I can give one reason -
convenience. I mainly use LAN myself but it's useful to switch to WiFi when something goes wrong and I need to tether my connection. It's not always for online gaming.

I've had all sorts from Warehouse and have struck lucky every time - always go for the 'like new' or 'very good' items and you won't be disappointed - 99% of the time they are customer returns and may simply have been opened and returned.

Sad that this deal is so selective and, as noted, things like PS4s etc are not included

Having said that, I've got a 25% off Warehouse voucher burning a hole in my pocket which needs using by 31 Dec from the Summer event (where many of my orders were cancelled due to the popularity of the event). Confident I will find something soon which I actually need ;)

Right waste if time this offer.
I'm looking to build a new PC. Barely any components fall within the offer. Spent ages looking. Compared to the 20% off last month, utter crap.
Last year I think it covered all item in the warehouse not like this year where it is only selected items. They say this is running till the 24th. After that date it may change again so always worth adding item your interested in to the save list and check back at a later date as the deal may include them.
I'm tempted to buy a monitor that is around 24" but don't really want to be stuck with another person's reject. Maybe best spending a little more for better quality. Good head's up though.

AMD, no thanks :(
There is more to computing than games though and there are certain workloads where an FX 8320 is very good value indeed. Like running lots of virtual machines, or similar things where having 8/4 cores is an advantage.
Anyway, the thing is that an FX-8320 costs £120 and for that price on the Intel side you can't even get an i3-6300 (£135+). So yes, an i7-6700K is faster but for close to £300 vs £120 you would expect it to be. The old adage: there's no such thing as bad product, just a bad price. And AMD have been forced to price their CPUs low enough for them to have specific niches.
So, hopefully ZEN will put an end to this kind of automatic "AMD=bad" prejudice.

Im no fanboy but for years amd drivers did and still do my crunch in. Also the new GFs are still dire for htpc and stll cant decode some formats correctly! Didnt stop me buying shares in them last year, made a killing thx amd!

Has anyone who has this motherboard had any issues with the north bridge being very hot?
Is this motherboard better than an asus m5a99x evo r1?
All this arguing over CPU's whilst my 8 year old AMD x4 955 OC'ed to 4.0ghz is still chugging along well for all my needs including gaming. Next year I'll definitely be upgrading my Mobo, CPU, Ram and GPU.
Ordered one as I did the math and my current AM3+ board (Asus M5A78L-M USB3) though a few years old still sells for around £30 to £40 used (I paid about that when new...), and if you sell on the ram for around £40 the board itself is costing very little at all. New board, better specs, very little expense after selling off the un-needed parts, so hot from me.

My current CPU costs more now than it did then too (FX-6300). Not looking for a full new build until I have the cash for a good one. Will see how the Zen offerings and boards fare when released too.

Just bought one for a new build, seems like a really decent board for the price.
I envy everyone who is willing to spend extra money on an sli setup. What are you gonna put in there? Two 1070s is your cheapest option if you're going for a new build... Disregard this if you have two older cards in sli already and if your aim is not gaming.
Also if you are not in a terrible rush, Z270 is coming and if you do not already have an older compatible cpu and want to buy kaby lake this needs a bios update for which you 99% need a cpu.

Also next week there is Zen announcment, kaby lake soon as well so I would be patient a bit longer and see how that play out before committing to a single camp.

it has been the same price on Amazon for the last 2 months at least. cold from me
But on amazon "Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months".
Have fun ordering from there :)


fair enough didn't see that :D
floppydesk
supports AMD Crossfire only :( what about nvidia SLI ;) COLD from me because dont support SLI.
You always have to pay extra for SLI though. They don't support x16/4x mode whereas AMD do, so the board has to have at least two x8 slots. If you look at the similar MSI Z170A SLI you'll see that it includes a chip which allows PCIe to run at x8/x8/x4 (that board has three physical x16 slots). That does add to the price.
At least it's not a £100 premium like G-Sync vs FreeSync though. Nvidia could easily change the requirements as even x4 PCIx 3.0 is plenty of bandwidth.

I would avoid buying used Motherboards*. Far more miss than hit in my experience and at this price this deal is freezing imo: I was looking at this board a few weeks back (comparing prices etc) and it was £68 new on Amazon not so long ago. You can still get it brand new for a few quid more elsewhere and the price drops back down to near enough the same as this (£79.99 or so) every now and again.

Better to wait and see if the AM3 boards drop in price in January.

*I'd only take a punt on a used board if I could pick one up cheap in an auction on ebay, and the seller has good feedback and selling it as working (Can always return it if its bad). Avoid 'untested' listings like the plague though. Anything allegedly 'untested' will likely be sold as 'spares/repair' and is almost certain to be a complete dud.
I'm sure I paid the same price or less for a brand new one from Amazon fairly recently....
Pay the extra and buy new, I bought one a couple of years ago at it was dead on arrival.
Good luck.. mine came with bent pins. They also normally ship in the box and stick labels all over.

Fan splitters will do you - couple of quid each and you can use all your fans. 3 pin fans are fine to use on 4 pin (pwm) connectors.

Are the new intel chips compatable with this also waiting on zen hmmmm

Kabylake should be compatible with all Z170 boards if the manufacturers release updated bioses for them. They'd be daft not to, think most have plans for this.

Edited By: fishyswaz on Dec 07, 2016 21:30
Seems like a pretty good deal. Some reviews of the PSU would be helpful but it appears to be Bronze-rated, semi-modular, with two year warranty, Japanese capacitors and a 13.5cm 'Ultra Silent Fan', so hopefully whoever made it for them it's reliable and quiet.

Why is this hot? You'd be better off either waiting for Zen or going Intel. Only reason to buy a board like this is if your existing one died - even then I'd consider moving to intel.
Do you think the new processors with motherboard and ram will be just over £200? If so I'll wait but I expect it will be much more expensive than that. You certainly can't get an i5 with motherboard and ram for that price.
No, initial processors are going to be high end only. I'd be surprised if in the initial release you'd get change from £500 for board / RAM / CPU.

That said I suspect there will be boards around the £100 mark pretty much from go that will have similar features as this board as the new chipset has native M.2 and 3.1 support which this AM3+ board bolts on via 3rd party chipsets. If I was building a new system right now and only wanted to spend £200 I'd be looking at a budget board with a skylake i3 though unless I had a resonable AM3+ CPU knocking around.

what tablets can i use this in??
Any device that support a MicroSD card. However the capacity and read/write speed of the card will vary between devices. You'll need to check product page of your device.
Some tablets/phones say they only support 'up to 32GB' (or similar), so may have difficulties with something as large as this.

thats what i was worried about. wonder why they only go up to 32 gb???
The Micro SDHC spec has a maximum of 32GB ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroSD#SDHC and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroSD#Compatibility ). I think it is often the manufacturer covering their own back in that they haven't fully tested their phones/tablets will all micro SDXC cards on the market, so they aren't to blame if one doesn't work. Searching for your device and the capacity (e.g. "Linx 7 128GB") and possibly the card model may bring back someone who has used it before you.
