couldn't recommend tbh. It's a £150 cpu and a decent sub £100 motherboard.

But then includes a single stock (not dual channel) of 3000mhz (not 3200 or higher) RAM and just 8GB (not 16gb). Seems a waste of the £50 premium.

Just buy separately and get 16gb of crucial or corsair etc (and an after market cooler)

£282.97 around picking CPU from Amazon and others from CCLonline. £282.97 around picking CPU from Amazon and others from CCLonline. Link added :CPU- £154.99MOBO - £95.99RAM - £31.99


Also would recommend spending the extra £30 on a 16gb kit
8gb of 3000mhz ram, behave!

yeah man. decent pairing. FYI if the ram is "too slow" you don't get the full potential from these AMD CPUs.

This is a happy medium config. Are you sure about matx motherboard though?
One could add in another 8gb..
the 8gb isn't a problem.

Problem here is the price for what's on the tin..

Nowt wrong with adata,

Some folks moan at me about some mismatch item bundles but there buyers requests and bargain prices to market.

But this is as much a mismatch item, leat board with budget ram. Nada


If you want good price tomahawk bundles: ccl when they come under the Ebay code, but I believe they have dropped out now,..

And AWD do a good bundle with tomahawk but it goes out of stock very very quick.

MSI make many B450 Max boards, you might want to update the post to say this is a B450M Mortar Max. It's not a board I would personally choose due to lack of PCIe slots but might be useful for some.

I knew there were different speeds of RAM, but didn't think it made much of an impact on performance unless you were going for top end gear for a high end config. Medium config is what I'm aiming for here, as an update to an existing PC. Hence the mATX motherboard.

There seems some negativity towards mATX on here. Should I be looking for just an ATX board for easier cable management and better ventilation?

Thanks @sarden84 , I'll keep a look out for the AWD bundles then
cant recommend, you are paying more for a service, which is putting a CPU in the socket and a ram stick in a socket.

if you can build a PC using this kit, you can build a PC.

you have more flexibility when selecting your own components, which means you can get a cheaper board that is equivilant in power spec or spend a bit more on a nicer board. not to mention they only give you 1 stick of ram! you want dual channel. so you will need to get another stick anyway

docs.google.com/spr…dit

if you want to match the same underlying specs you can get it down to under £260 by using these parts

AMD Ryzen 5 3600

AsRock Pro4-F (on TCB)

Adata XPG Gammix D10 8GB 3000Mhz (on TCB)

leaving you £50 to spend on a better motherboard or more ram.

It does really depend on your configuration. Don't be mistaken though, the bundle mentioned here is still going to be quick. But with Ryzen RAM speed makes more of a difference compared to Intel. But 3000mhz RAM is still going to be absolutely fine, and is a big step up from the standard 2400mhz.

Also keep in mind that as you go up the MHz in RAM, generally your timings increase with it. (Check notkyon.moe/ram…htm). So 3000mhz CL15 gives exactly the same output as 3600Mhz CL18, although again IIRC, higher MHz is more preferable to lower timings for Ryzen - but really nothing to worry about.


So although the sweetspot for Ryzen is 3600/3733, 3000hz cl15/16 is still absolutely 100% fine, and it's still going to be a cracker of a machine - but get 16GB RAM...


With regards to ATX / mATX - you're just losing out on some sata ports, pci-e slots, maybe some fan ports and so on. Yeah cable management might be a bit tighter, but airflow is going to be fine. Think it was proven before that a bunch of cables sitting infront of your mobo doesn't have much, if any, impact on cooling.
