You can add 16GB of 3200MHz RAM for an extra £69.99 which is a fair price too

That's the 3900X, this is the 3900, which is worth about £100 less.



It's not worth £100 less, it's an OEM part that is not usually for retail, it has the same difference than the 3600 and the 3600x which are typically priced wihtin £30-40 of one and other

Can anyone help? I built a basic PC last year using a 2200G and an RX590. The board I'm using is an old one, AB350 gaming or something. I'm looking to replace the board and processor. Everything else on my PC is decent enough (RAM 3200 16GB etc). Would this be a good upgrade or would you recommend a better graphics card as well? I don't want to spend a fortune, I'm going to be using the old parts for a basic build for my child

Yes this would be great for what you need, I would usually say get a cheaper CPU but there is only a £30 difference between this and the 3700X here and it's the same price as the 3800X bundle here and an extra £100 for the 3900x here

Wow - this is a good price! I thought the CPU alone was about this kind of money. I’ve bought too many chips recently based on deals and certainly don’t need another excuse - not that an 8-core needs upgrading anyway.

My AWD-IT came in the motherboard box with all original bits - the CPU had no box. It also wasn’t properly assembled so make sure you check it over yourself before installing it - for me it was the screws on the CPU holder that very obviously weren’t tightened up.

Yeah, it is about £490 for DDR4 PC 3200 MHz stuff. Which puts it at about the same price as 16Gb (2x 8GB) in terms of cost per GB, roughly £61.

The X variant carries a c25% premium to the non-X variant, so while £100 might have been a bit high it's close.

The difference will almost certainly be in binning, ie the X variant will likely be able to turbo higher / longer. Like you say, though, won't be much difference in gaming, but then again there won't be much difference between this and a 3600 either using current benchmarks!

Worth noting the non-X variant has a lower TDP so will run cooler and have lower total power draw.

Yeah, think the 3900X is 105 TDP and this is 65 TDP and this has a 0.5GHz lower turbo clock
I need a four monitor setup for work, it involves trading and other productivity uses. Is this a good deal?

I'm fairly sure at stock, the extra TDP allowance accounts for much of the difference - you can probably close that gap a lot with a good board, fan+heatsink (or water cooling) and some/lots of time for tweaking. For the price alone, a 12C/24T chip with good motherboard is worth it.

Oh absolutely, not questioning the value of this deal, it's incredible to think you can get a 12C CPU with a mobo at this price!

Not sure how the MSI X470 fairs in terms of VRAMs, but the Gaming version is usually one of the better ones so should be OK.

That's how mine arrived, though as I said, they didn't assemble it properly - the cooler didn't look straight and one of the screws was clearly not screwed down (I could move it with my fingers), the other 3 were massively overtorqued. I will mention it to them but probably get nowhere.

Regardless of how correct this comment is, shouldn't you be voting on the deal itself? Don't get me wrong this community is great and I really value people like yourself providing pros / cons / technical info of a specific product, its what makes this site great. But surely you should just provide the info and not vote cold because it isn't for you, especially as 32gb is overkill for most people's needs!?!
