27" and 1080p is not a good combination. 1440p is ideal. Still a good price.
Anyone tried the BeQueit brand also listed at CCL? I see they are decent prices, never looked at CCL before. Thanks for the hook up op!
Such good power supplies. ive got the 650W full modular its build quality is second to none. Cables are made brilliantly.
my meter tells me a different story, the web is full of charlatans
Nope on gold there is 1-2% difference between 50%-100% on 80+ so spending far more on a PSU double the power you require is a big waste of money.
What would be nice is to compare the efficiency curve @ 500w against the P2 750W. Because that is also around a similar price (recent deal, not so long ago). So does a 1000w Gold @ 50% load beat a 750w Titanium @ 67% load? In terms of the efficiency.  It seems they both are similar down to about 150w (G3=90%) / 120w (P2=90%). So the P2 becomes slightly more efficient at lower loads. However the G3 is a physically smaller unit. More compact size than the P2. Not sure about the active / passive fan mode switch though. Does the G3 also have such a physical switch to disable passive mode?
Cause all stock fans are pony Plus no rgb.
If they serve a purpose then why would you, you have paid for them afterall
Surely everyone replaces the standard fans anyway
but once youve upgraded to full rgb its all good x
Only thing I find with nzxt is there fans are not very good in terms of bearing squeaks
Bah too slow. OOS
wohoo, that's what I called a Great find on top of a deal. (y)
Just ordered 2, cheers
At those temps it won't. Damn so close to buying this. Just read this Techpowerup review and so tempted. Just splurged on some WC parts recently and just thinking I shouldn't blow more on the PC (LOL).
Never noticed any, Anytime I checked the temperature it was always around 25 Deg C
Ahh, cool. What are temps like? experince any throttling, etc?
I never used it as my Gigabyte board had already one fitted.
Nice :) . Is the included heatsink useful?
Yeah, I would take a miss on the 4080 as it has heating issues and too many RMAs, it's fixed in the 5060 which has more bandwidth and handles 8k well.
Or even better, the 4080 will drop the 3070 to the sub £300 Mark. It is worth waiting guys. Don’t forget battlefield VII is coming in 4 years, just round the corner
RX 3090 ( or better ) then :)
The YouTuber AdoredTV has received information from several sources regarding AMD’s new graphics card generation. The first three models will be called RX 3080, RX 3070 and RX 3060 and will primarily target Nvidia’s mid-range segment. The name could not be chosen by chance. Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards have the naming scheme 2080 or 2070 after all. As with the Ryzen chipsets in relation to Intel, AMD could use the name of the next generation of the competitor. On the other hand, AMD would also come up with a similar naming scheme with Ryzen 3000. With regard to performance, there are also some initial statements. Thus AMD apparently actually brings the new generation first in the middle class. The RX 3080 is supposed to compete with the RTX 2070 and show an increase in performance of 15 percent compared to the RX Vega 64. The TDP of the Navi 10 chip should be 150 watts, 8 gigabytes of GDDR6 are used as graphics memory. Also the RX 3070 should count on 8 gigabyte GDDR6 memory and come to the level of the RX Vega 56. The chip should be Navi 12 and has a TDP of 120 watts. The direct competitor would be here the RTX 2060 and/or at present the GTX 1070. The RX 3060 is the entrance into the Navi series. The chip should also be based on Navi 12, but with 75 Watt TDP. The video memory is 4 Gigabyte GDDR6. With these specifications, it should reach the performance level of the RX 580 and is thus the direct competitor of the GTX 1060 or a potential RTX 2050.

Anyone got any comments about interoperability with other powerlines. These are my first AV1000's where as the rest of my other powerlines are AV600. So in theory they should work fine, as they are downwardly compatible, although drop from AV1000 to AV600 to match my existing adaptors. In practice though things are not so great. When these two new ones are the only adaptors on the network everything is fine - I get good throughput and green lights on each adaptor. As soon as the AV600's appear on the network - the Tenda's work, kinda, after a fashion, but are slow (at least 25% slower than the AV600's), dropout occasionally, and I have a red light on the adaptor for the Powerline circuit. In essence, they don't like to drop down to AV600. I am dipping my toe in purchasing just one pair of these, rather than replace the old units for these, but now not so sure its worth the outlay.
Tested and it works fine. Faster than my TP Link 500mbps adapters (as you would hope). Time will tell for reliability! Not sure how to tell if it is cloning the WiFi properly. I still see my 2.4 and 5.0 networks as normal
Mine just arrived and WOW I have never seen such bad English on a product box :O Genuinely considering returning it based on this alone
wifi sucks for gaming.
When I recently bought my first house I made a point of replacing all the wiring and sockets (with power lines half in mind). However, I am planning on installing network cables before we get carpets/flooring done. That said I bought the Tenda PH3 triple pack as a stop gap and they haven't dropped out once compared to my older incredibly buggy TP Links (have had various models over the years) which all dropped out constantly in a small modernised flat with wiring that was only a few years old.
Thanks for your input. ;)
I have used the PNY 120gb drive for a good few years now without any issues, great price
Ebuyer are doing the 1700 with spire cooler for a bit more I would be more inclined to take that not in stock now but you can pre order for the 10th https://www.ebuyer.com/778680-amd-ryzen-7-1700-8-core-am4-cpu-with-wraith-spire-95w-yd1700bbaebox
2600 is six core isn't it?
Not a bad price but id say its about what the 1600x should be at this stage as the ryzen 1 series is getting on a bit now (still good cpus tho). Last week i managed to get a ryzen 2600 for about this price in the ebay 15% off promo, which id say is better owing to the improvements in ipc etc of ryzen 2, but to be fair there is no way of getting that now, so this deal is perfectly ok on its own terms...
Decent price, if you buy it don't forget you'll need a cooler for it
Tut,tut. You've missed something.
Which is why this is clearly a gaming monitor but as you suggest not a Jack of all trades.
You bought KG271 that is 75Hz. This is KG271B that is 240Hz
If doing any sort of productivity work 1080p just doesn't cut it at 27".
It also has Freesync
Yep never gets above 60 degrees
Have you been checking them temps on everything whilst gaming?
Did it, didn't make a blind bit of difference. It still completely crashes my system. Even tried switching it to the 2nd bios which has lower power draw and running it on lowest power settings in wattman but it still crashes anywhere from 10 mins into a game to 2 hours so will change PSU and see it it still does it
Good deal but steer clear of gamemax, I deal with them at work along with several other dodgy brands. Not worth the fallout
Ok will give it a try... Did uninstall and reinstall latest drivers from amd website but was already on the latest
doh! completely missed that vital bit of info... my err
Because this is 120GB and the other is 240GB
Why is this cold when I posted the eBuyer offer that was £2 less had hot votes? Just interested. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/apacer-ast280-240gb-m2-ssd-2499-ebuyer-3122998
It’s so cold in here 🥶
Yes, thanks for listing, was after a 27" but will give this a try; I don't think this was as cheap even during the BF sale.
This is now listed cheaper on their eBay website; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112802077372 Use discount code PRESENTS to bring it down to £89.35! Thanks to @NeoTrix)
The 5ms delay comes from the constant vsync on all games. Freesync on this will not only make 60fps consol games smoother, but also more responsive. At least on Xbox, since they have support for the technology.
Yeah I missed one of them :(
https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/3gvml1/cherry_mx_brown_blue_black_red_clear_force_curves/ See this
Which is best, this one or https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071HBFN2T/?tag=22 ??
Thank you! And thank you OP!
I have cherry browns in my keyboards. I think I need cherry blacks because I hammer the keys to the point where I don't feel the bump. I can't remember if cherry reds have greater resistance than browns.
Yeah I like it. I use mine mainly for gaming and they're much easier to press than my last keyboard, that had Cherry black switches which had more resistance. The Brown and Blue switches have a tactile bump in them to let you know a key press was registered.
I don't disagree. Still in sweet spot for an affordable competitive gaming monitor. The "new" XG2402 still uses the same panel. If that had been posted for £230 I would of voted it cold. As it is I've not voted on this XG2401 because I feel there are better choices around the same price but I can understand those who are on a strict budget may need to consider whatever saving they can find. The question of image quality is really subjective. There are always trade offs for monitors of the same/ similar spec. Its just up to the buyer which they feel is best for them.
Well tbh if you look at reviews. This old version has better picture apparently. I do understand it is kind of old though and the new version is available for 230. Still it's good quality for a 144hz 1080p monitor for gaming
I think its just the case this monitor is a bit dated now. Design still look good but the panel used is old. You can get the newer version of the panel with a 3-sided borderless design for a few quid more: https://www.cclonline.com/product/aoc-g2590px-gaming-monitor-24-5-inch-1920-x-1080-full-hd-tn-panel-amd-freesync-144hz-black-g2590px/ Or you can pick something like more features like a strobe backlight also just a few quid more: https://www.cclonline.com/product/lg-24gm79g-gaming-monitor-24-inch-1920-x-1080-full-hd-tn-panel-amd-freesync-144hz-black-24gm79g/ At £200 this monitor just doesn't make sense against the competition.
Not a clue, maybe it's because it's pretty ugly.
No idea why people are voting cold on this? Currently cheapest you can get this monitor and it's decent.
Thanks. I also looked yesterday and it was not there. Have cancelled the original order with ccl. Had already used my code on a 4k 40" monitor but had to transfer my secondary "USA" account to buy this. Also went though quidco for 3%... Guess well see if that happens. Got my 970 today (hopefully it will work) from amazon warehouse so will be getting the new pc ready today. Thanks to everyone that helped with information and links etc.
You're right. Wasn't there yesterday! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/382611391236 Great price!
I just bought the PRO, can't send the link as I am in work and Ebay is blocked..
I couldn't find the PRO on their eBay store yesterday when I looked
This is currently £88.55 on CCL EBay using the PRESENTS 15% voucher which I think ends today. Both the PRO and the NON-PRO are same price.
Just want to add, I have set this up today. and it looks and performs great with an Intel SSD inside.
Yer good spot. But I’m collecting so I save.
Looks nice but this deal is pretty cold when you can buy it from the CCL eBay store and save £1.34. rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182922548815
Actually cannot find it now. Cheapest I can find now is Amazon - £12.70
This deal is back on.
Bought this deal. It’s only down the road so can collect tomorrow.
Try Senetic , £68.33 https://www.senetic.co.uk/product/SSDSC2KW512G8X1
It is showing 145.28 now, is there any voucher code to get for £68.99
I was going to buy this but the reviews online are not too great . But it's cheap
Looks a good price for 480gb SSD and no reviews from the Nerds yet......hurry up :)
Thanks for that, ordered and and heat added (y)
Heat for Intel.
Thanks OP. Very good drive according to endurance test. Even better value 512gb version for £68.99 same seller or £68.33 with Senetic...
Very good find, Op, good piece of kit at a very good price, don't think I've ever seen it cheaper. Scan have it for around £40, Amazon lowest ever was £48 (at £50something presently) and most other places are anywhere between £50 -70. Well done, Op, one of the better finds today. :D
