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

Here we have a Ryzen 5, 6Core 12 Thread CPU 3600 model which is part of the latest 3rd generation CPU line up, and one of the best for gaming,

Combined with the ASUS B450 Motherboard at £219.95 makes this an extreme hot product.

The cheapest 3600 atm is around the £174-177 which is the cheapest its been at, and the cheapest motherboard is the Asrock B450 £52... which brings a total of £226.
however the asus MB is around the £67.00 mark

which basically means your getting your CPU for £153.. depending how u look at it.

(board is on par with the B450 Giga DS3H @ 65 in pricewise, but id personal choose the DS3H)

but
(considering there doing a bundle of the 2600 (£115 item) with this same mb at £199..... )

its one of them, if your looking for a prebult mobo /cpu combo's which are usual inflated.

Pair the above with some of the options below to make a great perfect build,

-------------------------------
iv copy this from my Ryzen 1600 build advice post, it is indeed remaining purchase from CCL which offers fantastic customer services, but u could have a look on the AWD website to compare.. "i know CCL well as ive spent tons with them" and there website is better lay'd out too".

And the reason is.....


Well, the quality of the VRM would be a big one. In fairness, this board has the same (not very good) VRM as the Strix B450-F, which is a much more expensive board. The difference is that this one has no heatsinks whatsoever on the MOSFETs, leaving them entirely at the mercy of case airflow. You really wouldn't ever want to put more than a 65W chip in this, and even then you'd want to make sure you had decent airflow over the VRM to keep it cool enough. Overclocking is pretty much out of the question, as is upgrading to one of the more power-hungry Ryzen parts - whereas there are a number of B450 boards that don't cost much more and will handle a 3950X just fine. One of the draws of AM4 as a platform is the upgrade potential on an existing motherboard, so it's never nice to be limited in that respect.

I'd always advise looking at the AM4 VRM Ratings spreadsheet before choosing a motherboard. Often you'll find that you can get a lot more VRM for around the same price, or just as much for significantly less. Of course, VRM strength isn't the only factor to consider when buying a motherboard, but when it's a case of one being the absolute bottom of the barrel, it's worth looking at alternatives.

Cracking post. Good deals. Cheers.
Brilliant post.
Cold. Probably the worst b450 board I've ever seen. There's a difference between cheap and good value. This is cheap for a reason.
Great post, there's a mix of good deals there!
I guess you need gpu here?
voted hot, amazing info and effort put into the post cheers
Practically 2020 and motherboards still come with VGA and PS2 ports?

Voted hot though, £500 for a decent pc capable of editing and gaming.

It’s not the best MB and it’s a way for them to offload these boards using a ‘deal’ This is a great CPU, but personally I’d spend a few ££ more on a decent MB. Can’t go far wrong with the Tomahawk.

Or the mortar boards. I would class them as a bit better, especially that beautiful titanium mb, but that is a tad expensive here in the west for my liking.

Yep! Some of these deals are ok, but I don’t get it when they bundle up decent CPUs and GPUs and put them into a cheap MB or PSU. The price difference between a poor MB or PSU, compared to a decent one is minimal in a PC.
Genuine question completely disregarding this specific deal.

How do you know that you aren't getting a used part when buying prebuilt deals like this?
Always hard for me to justify the small discounts these prebuilt cpu/mobo deals etc when I can never be sure if it's brand new product. Why don't they just sell the 2 products brand new sealed in a bundle together as well?
I'm always sceptical about it even though it does sound unlikely for a well reviewed company.
Heat for the power supply recommendation alone! I was after a decent PSU for 60 quid and had settled on the 500W Bequit Pure Power 11 but the Riotoro Enigma is fully modular, more wattage and uses better components.

One thing note: CCL states the Enigma G2 650W warranty is 5 years but on Riotoro's site, they do confirm it's 10 years as OP wrote.

Most products can be repackaged with fresh bags, wire ties, seals etc. so I guess you never know 100% even when buying a boxed product, unless maybe if the seals are those hologram must-be-cut type or if it's obviously a return. I didn't realise CPU & board bundles came with CPU and cooler mounted, and I can't understand why - it's a risk and cost the company need not shoulder: to open and handle parts then repackage using different (and more?) packaging once mounted. Maybe AWD have had customers making a mess of doing it and trying to say the parts were faulty. If you see a bundle you like then you could always call up the supplier and ask for the parts to be sent unmounted.

Not voted on the deal as I don't kow much about mainboards for Ryzen but more knowledgeable folk are warning it's not good.

can confirm its 10 years, got a box on my lap now just rechecked

Awesome, whoever put that work together - thank you!
pre bulit becoz some ppl just dont feel confident or capable to put it together themselves .. also they dont know how to troubleshoot any problems.
"Assembled and tested by our technical team" and you can include ram in that too
If someone is buying a pre-built then upgradeability is probably not on their list of musthaves.
3980x ... the 2600 is looking better and better value @ £120 -
good post tho plenty of detial and options ..AWD staff working OT ?
Edited by: "GwanGy" 1st Jan
Is it the full bundle, memory and power etc. Just need a case?
The only reason I ask is this machine is purely for plex and with a benchmark just under 20000 sounds like a great deal
