old stock being dumped before ryzen 2 hits the shelf.
So so tempted by this but I really can't justify it right now
Thought 95W sounded like loads, but just checked and my 6700K is 91W with half the cores.

Because anyone serious enough to spend nearly £300 on a CPU is probably capable of checking all the usual places for prices. It's not like anyone's going to say "hey, that sounds like a good deal. Don't need it but I think I'll buy it anyway!" [1]

[1] Actually, this is HUKD, someone probably will do that.

I don't think it can be justified at all when a 1700 will usually overclock to the same speeds. Not to mention the refresh of AMD's lineup is only a couple months away.

Because it's quite easy to search in pricespy and find the cheapest deal.

I noticed you've just added a negative comment to a deal I posted months ago. Tit for tat??

Good price but this is just making my 1700 upgrade build dilemmas even worse considering that GPUs and DDR4 are through the roof at the moment and stretching to the 1800x seems very worth it!

If it's any use, I bought the 1700 for my build when ebuyer dropped their prices in error one weekend. I use the stock cooler and overclocked to 3.6 GHz using Auto voltage setting in the bios. The voltage maxes out at 1.212v and my max Cinebench 15 score is 1575. That's pretty much on par with a stock 1800x. The stock cooler is decent with the added benefit that it pushes cooling air onto the VRM heatsinks.

atm the 1700 is around £250 and the 1800x is 264 ..

just get the 1800x

Whenever I post on here I seem to attract the attention of someone like this. All I did was point out it was cheaper elsewhere. He obviously searched for my last deal and added a worthless, irrelevant and unhelpful comment to the bottom of it.

Have to agree with this. I only paid £206 for my 1700 new. They have been available recently for £235. But if the difference is currently only £15 I'd go for the 1800X. Just budget for a cooler if you don't already have one.

Exactly, you have given me the validation I needed so gone for it - seems a no brainer and I can't imagine the 1800x dropping too much lower as its already squeezing right against the 1700 & 1700x as it is!

I've already got a 1700 and liked the stock cooler on that so was hoping for my second build for the missus I'd just duplicate that but now this will go in mine - everyones a winner

Enjoy! From what I've read the Cryorig H7 is a great cooler at a great price.
I would wait 3 months for Ryzen refresh. Downside in waiting for the Ryzen refresh is memory/GPU and other prices which have soared.

16gb 3200mhz Corsair DDR4 ram is now nearly £200 for 2x8gb. I paid 60-70 quid less than this back in August/September. SSD drives and GPU are just as expensive. If you can recyle parts that is a real budget saver these days. makes self build systems much cheaper to build.

The refresh might give faster CPU. Unclear how they might be priced in 3 months time.

£154 for Ryzen 1600 is not bad value here.

Thanks OP for posting this, I hadn't seen the Amazon price drop, so just bought one now, though OOS it'll likely to come back into stock very soon

Not everyone overclocks, also this is a better bin. If you don't need the cooler this is easily worth this premium over the 1700.

I definitely agree with you, these chips are proven to run safely and stable at higher clocks whereas with the lower ones its a total lottery. Some of them run fine for sure, but others run very hot or with dangerous voltages which will reduce the life of the chip and could have quite a serious impact on overall system stability.
Damn this is cheap, almost half the release price. Heat added.

Not everyone overclocks but most do if they are buying a £300 higher end processor and putting it on an enthusiast board that will match!

Also the binning separation with these Ryzens is miniscule at best. Sites have tested a lot of the 8 cores and found the results end up virtually the same to within 100MHz maximum overclocking. It's such a small percentage of difference it's a margin of error, normal sample variance. tomshardware.com/rev…tml examples like this and other sites as well. Anyone that thinks the 1800X is somehow far better binned is mislead.

I saw this reply coming and you can safely say it really makes virtually no difference if you are going to overclock whether you have a 1700 or an 1800X. Apart from the money you'll save buying the 1700, they have been as low as £200.

Its not worth it if you can get a 1700 cheaper. If you can't get a 1700 on a deal right now and desperately need to buy now then it's a good deal. But otherwise the 1800X is mostly pointless.
the 1700 and 1700x should drop to 220 and 240ish (perhaps a little more)

lets wait and see

so you should be able to get a a mobo, 32gb of ram and a ryzen for 600ish
It's now £259.14 at AriaPC. I can't post the deal because AriaPC don't seem to validate.
Also with regards to binning, I've read it's not necessarily about higher clocks but whether the non X versions are more stable at lower voltage. The 1700 has a TDP of 65W. Possibly the 1800X aren't stable at 65W even when set to a lower clock speed.

Binning specific to the Ryzen 8 cores is about the voltage and power efficiency at lower clocks. 1800X achieve their stock rated speeds at lower voltages than the 1700 and 1700X.

But as my link pointed out, if you overclock that goes out the window and doesn't correlate. It doesn't guarantee higher ultimate clocks or lower voltages. It's clearly a limitation of this arch on this process. With any luck the revised Ryzen lineup out in April should hit higher clocks if nothing else. Certainly close the gap on Intel's more refined arch that can often surpass 5GHz.

You need a GPU, or several, for that.
