For the £8 premium for no messing about with BIOS's and pretty much eliminating DOA, it's well worth the extra.
Motherboards ok, could just get a B450 Tomahawk and the 3600 separately for less.

Edit the board in the bundle is only £90. I guess having the bios sorted like Gavin suggests is a bonus.

Why not just buy a tomahawk and 3600 separately for 280 and save 20 quid?

I dont understand the 'deal's here

BIOS upgrade is done for you. Not all boards let you upgrade the BIOS without a CPU. The Tomahawk does but Gigabyte boards don’t.

So you’d need a Ryzen 1 or 2 to flash this board first before it would work with a 3600. If you went the Tomahawk route you’d need the know how to do a CPUless flash, which doesn’t look too tricky.

I guess they’re hopping the convenience is worth a few quid.

In addition to the heatsink being also installed and the 3 year warranty

Yeh you just need a usb drive for the tomahawk. 20 quid saved really but each to their own
Weren't all the Gigabybe mobos from the last gen Ryzen apart from the Gaming 7 up. Seems like they are trying to shift old stock in this bundle.
On the contrary some of these motherboards are decent and have good vrms that can support gen 3 of Ryzen CPUs well. If you want a decent rig (build an excellent gaming rig on a budget for example) without lots of pcie slots for M2 drives and the such, this is for you
No ram? That not bundle motherboard 😞

Eh? who hasn't got a usb drive lying around? and £20? - don't know if you're being serous or sarcastic

What's so difficult to understand?

This deal is £300.

A b450 tomahawk and 3600 separately cost £280. £20 saved...
X570 or nutting
I'd rather future proof myself and get a x570 mobo.

AM4 socket is stated to go until 2020 so it's not exactly future proofing. Unless you have a specific need for PCIe 4.0 I'd grab a good b450 like the MSI B450 Tomahawk or MSI B450 Carbon Pro AC for 3600/3600x/3700x/3800x CPU's and an x470 with better VRM's for the 3900x. Not all x470s boards have better VRMs so do some research.
Is this over locked to 4.2 or is that just the boost they are showing

It'll just be the boost clock.

Well there you have it. The tomahawk is a far better board and even has USB bios flashback.

Yes, this motherboards VRMs were shown to overheat at stock speeds.

This motherboards VRMs happen to be absolutely terrible, known to overheat at stock speeds and shutdown.
"This motherboards VRMs happen to be absolutely terrible, known to overheat at stock speeds and shutdown."
if this were true then CCL would be setting themselves up for a world of pain.. esp with a three year warranty. However I dont think it is true and this could be a fab buy ....
eh feels like they are trying to shift old stock.

Yes you can flash it and it's VRM isn't bad. Think it's similar to the B450 Tomahawk.
