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

Hi,
I have bought this mobo few weeks back for ~£205 as the mouse is worth ~£50 and £35 cashback brought up the cost of the mobo quite significantly! When I was updating my pcpartpicker build today I have noticed the price drop by another £20 This surely makes it the cheapest mobo with x570 if you decide to sell the mouse!

Potentially you are looking here at £40 for the mouse on ebay + £35 Cashback bringing the final price down to ~£110

If you are after the new build pick it up instantly with the current deal for the Ryzen 7 3700x for £285!

Update:
I have lowered the price to reflect the cashback in the price. Also I can confirm that submitting cashback works on the Asus website as I have submited my cashback few days back.

Probably the best VRM on X570 at this price utill you get the the Taichi.
It's also £151 as there is £35 back on this motherboard. Seems a good buy for a X570 board but could be the last year on the current AM4 socket.

Would this be a good part to go for when doing a roughly £1500-2000 build - with purpose strictly for gaming? Or is intel still the way to go if you only care about games?

As far as I know ZEN3 will still use the AM4 socket. and it is due release in 2020. Zen 4 might use a new socket but according to the road map is not due release before 2021. Also even if this is the last 1-2 years on the AM4 socket the mobo has PCI-E 4 and all the modern goodies so it should last you for years! Tho this is just my opinion based on the research done by me!

Also just read this morning that intel might not release anything in 10/7nm to compete with ZEN2/3 untill 2022. In that case you don't really have other alternative. And knowing Intel with new architecture they will release new socket

I would say yes. This is the build I have done: uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/b…TwP

Trhow in it RTX2070 or AMD 5700XT and preferably order different ram 32GB of 3200 CL15 and you have a pure gaming beast
How is the fan? does it spin 24/7?how often at high rpm which you can hear?

If all you care about is the max FPS you can get, then Intel still edge ahead. I'm talking about 1-10%, depending on the game. The Ryzen chips come out on top in certain games compared to Intel, but games still every so slightly favour Intel. For value though, AMD can't be touched right now. I thing there's a deal on Aria PC for the 3600 for £173 or so? Crazy. The closest Intel have is the 9600k (£230 on Amazon atm) and it's only a straight 6 core (3600 is 6 core, 12 thread).

In the past 3/6 months I've turned into a bit of an AMD fanboy I'll admit, but for good reason - value everywhere you look, with great performance to back it up.


On top of this, all the Ryzen CPUs come with adequate coolers. Intel you need to invest in a heatsink as well, so add at least another £25, up to £150 depending on what you want. I can't recommend Intel to anyone at the moment really, even with their recent "price cuts".

AMD have basically caught up with Intel in regards to gaming, and stormed past in terms of production/productivity (more cores, better multi-threaded performance in most cases, again Intel win in certain types of production as well).


Hope this helps!
I went for the WiFi version of this from Box for the same reason, with £35 cashback and a good mouse it is really cheap for a decent 570 mobo.

Thanks for a elaborated answer.
So while I am looking for MAX FPS - but still have a budget where I could put more money on a GPU Ryzen seems to make sense, do you agree?

Basically got a 1500-2000 budget to get as good pc as possible and to last me a few years - potentially won't be upgrading.
What PCU would you grab keeping above in mind? I was hoping to be able to squeeze in a lower tier 2080 ti within the budget, assuming black Friday delivers.

So personally, I'd say £1500-2000 is crazy good PC money. Granted a 2080 ti is major overkill for 1080p gaming, it will definitely do you well into the future. Keeping in mind the more you spend on your GPU the less value you get.

A 3700x paired with a 2080ti would be killer. A 9900k paired with a 2080ti would be killer.

If you go for the Ryzen option, try and get RAM rated at 3600mhz/3733mhz. Or do what I did and buy the Ballistix LT kit (~£75, 3000, cl15, has AES in the model name) and overclock it to 3733, save good bit of money. Although I have seen some good 3600 kits for under £100.

Essentially Ryzen = RAM matters, Intel = not so much, but get at least 3000mhz.

If I was building it I'd go for:

CPU - 3700x or 9900k.
GPU - 2070 Super, 2080 Ti. Only reason I'm not suggesting the RX 5700 / 5700XT is I've heard people have had some issues with games? Can't vouch for it, but AMD have always lagged behind with regards to drivers compared to Nvidia, so I wouldn't be overly surprised.
PSU - 600/700W PSU (google "PSU tier list 2019"), get something in tier 1 or 2.
Motherboard - Doesn't "really" matter, compare and go for something with the features you want. If you wanna go full RGB with bells and whistles get the top tier (x470/x570 for AMD, Z390 for Intel I think)
RAM - Can't recommend the Ballistix kits enough.
Case - Whateva!
SSD + HDD - For the SSD try and get an Nvme drive as opposed to SATA, your new motherboard is almost definitely going to support it, much faster when reading/writing. Operating windows will near enough be the same as a SATA SSD as an nvme. HDD is a HDD, 7200RPM for the win.

Monitor - Have a good think about this. Are you 1080p gaming, 2k? 4k? - Your PC will handle it all, the higher up you go the less frames you get. If you're only interested in 1080 and max frames, 100% get a 144hz monitor. 2k and above you're probably best looking at 60hz, would be hard to get 144hz @ 2k resolution, and would probably be damned expensive.

Are you including the monitor etc in that. As a general rule never spend more on the graphics card than you did the display device. Its held true for years and I don't expect it to change. Also while the base system will happily last many years it pays to do graphics cards little and often i.e. CPU/mobo etc every 6+ yesrs, but graphics every 2-3.

I would be more inclined to get something lower end now with intention of replacing it. NVIDIA is way more agile than Intel so we should see real competition gains in the next year or two. At the minute ray tracing is an unrealistic future tech, next two generations will make it normal. So I would at most get a 2070 Super, but would likely get a 5700XT or even just a 5700.

It also depends on what you mean by gamer, if you are only 1080p for competitive then that's a niche so you don't even need a 2080TI. If you are a regular gamer then unless you've spent the money on a high refresh rate HDR ultra wide or very large 4k monitor then you also don't meet a 2080Ti. If you've got a BFGD to run then carry on.

I agree with almost everything you've said. But the display device part. My 144hz Monitor cost me £150 I think, round about. I don't think I'd even get 60fps on most games with a £150 GPU, let alone 144hz. I guess maybe in certain circumstances this is true? Never heard it mentioned before in my life!


I agree though that the most value can be hand from upgrading every few years. I couldn't dream of dropping over £1000 on a GPU.

Damn! If I have only noticed the wifi version with the mouse at the time! Well spotted!
Thanks both of you, Chrsistoh and smckirdy.

I guess I would probably want the option to both just enjoy some good graphics when playing some games but then having the upper hand against old friends when playing something competitive - I currently have a 144hz 1080p screen - not sure if it's worth getting a better one (1080P one) as people to talk about stuff like 280 fps etc or is that completely irrelevant? I would need to buy another screen for 4k / HQD which would be played without the purpose hunting insane frames.

That being said the £1500-2000 budget was excluding screen / keyboard mouse etc. As for RGB I wouldn't spend a penny extra for it to be shiny, I only want it to run quick.

So basically is the best way to get as good GPU as possible and maintain within budget to go with Ryzen 3600/X or 3700/X and this kind of motherboard? Or would it potentially allow for a 9900k (if that's the best CPU for gaming) and / or go with that a lower tier GPU?
Not sure if there's any specific features I would need on a motherboard? Any must haves, don't need wifi even.

I've just put together this for about a £1500, not including monitor and peripherals. It's a 3700x on a Strix F B450 2tb NVME 2tb Crucial ssd 16GB Domiator Platinum RGB 3200mhz, Sapphire Nitro 5700XT , Deepcool Castle EX 360mm AIO, Seasonic Prime Snow 650w PSU and it's in the Thermaltake P3 Tempered Glass case. Then additionally bought the
K70 se, m65 elite and a 32 inch 1440p 75hz LG Monitor. Probably totals to around 2k all in so you could get something similar.

Just curious, you had any problems with your 5700 XT (drivers, games crashing etc.)?.


Only thing I'd do to save money here is get a single 512gb nvme and get large HDDs. I can't bring myself to pay for that much SSD storage.

Its not so much refresh rate, that's important, but image quality and real estate is way more important. I honestly would never spend less than £250 on a monitor unless it was an absolute steal. That being said for a £150 monitor a £150 graphics card is all I would use on it, although I wouldn't have gone high refresh rate unless it was a side feature to a decent panel type or colour accuracy.

No issues with drivers for over a month now. Launch was a bit ropey but all 1st adopters know this. Maxing out all games at 1440p well above 60fps. Yea mechanical drives are much more cost effective. I had to go with all solid state drives though they are silent and I have an open air case so I've cut down on sound and vibration where possible. Its actually very silent with all the custom fan curves I've set.

Hi. Really interested in this deal (and x570 generally) but just how noisy is the fan.
I couldnt resist and have just gone for this. That is a great board at what will be a fantastic price once mouse sold and cash back received. Just need a super deal on a 3700X to come through on Cyber Monday and I am ready to rebuild.
Purchased and delievered today. Thanks OP. Anybody want the mouse?

Ah you do it once you receive the mobo direct with ASUS...
Joe_Mason18/10/2019 14:46

I think Asus refund Aria or whichever dealer you purchased through, and the dealer then refunds you against you purchase. I have registered the board with Asus so we shall see.
Super deal! Anyone help me with advice, I can see this board has front usb-c port? My case has one, take it their is no way I make it work with one of those usb 3.2 ports?
Mouse sold. Cashback pending. Cracking board for what will be £114. Bargain
Anyone got there cashback sent yet? I'm still waiting even after talking to their promotions team
