This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

AMD 2nd Gen 12 Core / 24 Thread Ryzen CPU Threadripper 2 2920X Pre Order - £375.46 (inc Delivery)

Yes, 3rd Gen Ryzen is round the corner with AMD's 16 core / 32 thread cpu to be released by the end of the year (for £500ish), this still seems OK, especially if you already have an X399 motherboard.

They also have listed:

16 Core Ryzen Threadripper 2 2950X for £719.99 instead of £809.99
24 Core Ryzen Threadripper 2 2970WX for 899.98 instead of £1,139.98

Scan's website states all three are Pre Order and they are awaiting an ETA.

It's cheaper elsewhere but i ain't saying where, do some research!

I've voted cold. The price for the CPU is ok, but building a system around it is expensive. The x399 boards aren't cheap.

Boards start at ~£235 on Amazon and they have some in the Warehouse under £200.
For what is a workstation board that isn't expensive as they are more complex in design.

if you're building a system with alot of harddrives a x399 motherbord is very useful with all the PCIe lanes.

Not a gaming CPU. Shouldn’t really be under “gaming” category.
Does anyone know what time the ryzen 3000 cpu's will be listed on sites? It is coming out today right? Don't see any updates yet

Hard Drives are SATA so do you mean PCIe M.2 SSDs?

2pm from what I've heard.
the amount you spend on the mobo isnt worth it so probably buy ryzen 9

SATA still uses PCIe lanes along with all the other IO

Soooo you cannot play games with a PC built with this as its CPU

SATA is low bandwidth so you don't require a workstation board for that which is the context here.
My entry Level Z370 board has 6 SATA ports so just add a PCIe x1 SATA card for another 4 and that's 10.
Most boards have multiple x1 slots so you can go well above 10.
But if I was building a system looking to use more than 10 SATA drives I'd probably look at a board with 8 or 10 built-in and then start adding 8 port PCIe 3.0 x4 adapters.

Isn't worth it for gaming. For a workstation it's very much an amazing price.

It is but for pure CPU performance the Ryzen 3900X 12 core should beat it except where software really gains from the quad channel memory. The Threadripper platform has other advantages of course.
The 3900X will be nearer £500 it seems but you can run it in a £100 motherboard whereas Threadripper boards are usually £250+.
But the latest AM4 boards with PCIe 4.0 are going to be expensive it seems.
Time will tell; about 45 minutes in this case.

All I'm saying is it depends on your needs. Not saying Ryzen 3000 isn't a better buy for a lot of people because it is. Threadripper has its use cases though with the other features of the platform. Not to mention you'll be able to upgrade to Zen 2 Threadripper at some stage which will be insane.

Sure and if you want to go above 16C down the line then TR is the way to go.
The 24C at £900 is the bigger surprise as there are no AM4 chips coming close to that until the 16C is released in September.
AMD are really spoiling the workstation users unlike Apple who are doing the opposite.
The new Mac Pro Tower due out soon starting at £6k has the performance of a £1k self build.
Sure you can spec it to the sky but at that point you are looking at over £20K.

very true but the 3800x bring the core and thread count to the party for a good deal less, i’m sure those who can’t get by with a desktop platforms pci-e constraints for there diy workstation needs probably don’t go shopping on hotukdeals for there rig!

Oh yeah I would never recommend this over a ryzen 3000 for 99% of use cases, but there is still a market for these chips though.

Apart from you would need a 3900x for same core count. At £479 it's over £100 more (although platform cost x570 vs x399 probably balance this out). The real potential is the long term. In a couple of years time picking up a second hand 2970WX for a couple of hundred quid.

If gaming is your primary objective this is probably worth swerving.

It's this sort of thing I every day. I comment frequently helping anyone I can will point anyone in the direction of help. Not going to post 200 deals just for the sakes of it. Nor do I spend all day on the site. I'm a casual user like many others who you slate and attack. You come across as unstable is all and seem to struggle with helpful criticism often leaning towards aggression and on oneupmanship. I won't reply again my concerns were not to wind you up but think you should seriously reconsider the way in which you approach the comment section on this site. Have a nice day.

ssd`s are SATA too, and SATA interfaces need PCIe channels too.

You were originally talking about Hard drives not SSDs.
As I already pointed out, getting 10 or more SATA ports availble on a motherboard is no big deal and doesn't require much in terms of PCIe lanes.
