£219.56 for same motherboard & processor on Amazon, getting the cooler for £30.43 (£45.46 on Amazon)....saving £15.03.
Would say however the stock cooler on the Ryzen 1600 is pretty decent so worth just buying the board and processor separately.

Everyone aware of the recently discovered Ryzen hardware backdoor …Everyone aware of the recently discovered Ryzen hardware backdoor vulnerabilities? I'd stay clear from Ryzen before updated hardware is released.


Yes these vulnerabilities are really scary, all it takes is someone to sit down in front of your computer and they can access all of your data, providing thay know all of your passwords of course and user names and who you have accounts with, and your date of birth and your mother's maden name and the name of your uncle's first dog and the location of your great grandmother's third sexual experience, I mean if they have this easily got information and a ryzen CPU your SCREWED! 😵

I have this motherboard and processor, personally I don't think this is a great deal. You can get the motherboard and CPU for around £220 separately so you're getting the cooler for maybe £15 less than if you boughtt it separately.

The stock cooler that comes with the 1600 is fine for overclocking to about 3.7, and if you're really desperate to overclock more than that you're probably going to want water cooling anyway, and then you're getting into silicon lottery territory with this CPU. Seems pointless buying a cooler with the 1600 IMO.

This deal would make a lot more sense if the processor was the Ryzen 5 1600x and priced accordingly.
Pretty meh IMHO, like how they make sure to leave out the DDR4, which will add over £100 to the price. These bundles always used to be CPU, board and RAM, basically the heart of the system all in one and ready to go, great for first time builders. Soon as memory goes up you have to find that yourself, nice one ebuyer
Good , but whos going to jump on this when RY2 + is a few days away

I would be waiting for the 2600 out in 2-3 weeks. The 2600 is faster than the 1600X at stock. We also now have confirmation they can boost to 4.35GHz on the better Ryzen 2 models.

There is a distinct chance you'll be able to overclock and hit 4.4GHz on all cores plus the tweaks the design has to give you a clear advantage over the old Ryzen 1600 model. Well worth the few weeks wait.

Overhyped and you need admin privileges. If you had admin then you already have the keys to the castle. Its also highly dubious about the company that did the leaks an gave AMD 24 hours to respond. It all stank.

As for the deal not great and it is weeks till the Ryzen refresh. That means lower price on existing stock, may also mean lower price on Intel if v2 is good plus intel will be bring newer versions of coffee lake out as well.

Unless you get a super bargain, then I would wait.

AMD has neither confirmed nor denied whether the attacks can be executed remotely, or require local access. AMD did deny, however, that the attacks have anything to do with Meltdown or Spectre, the two side-channel attacks that rival Intel has worked to patch.

You are making an assumption that these need physical presence, that is *not* the case.

Also, you are likely wrong about needing any password as well.

The whole piece was a hit job on AMD to drive shares down in the short term, and to repeat the claims in the report is just plain stupid.

No, it's not. And that's why all the tech sites covered it, because it was a legitimate issue. To wave it off as if AMD can do no wrong is just bias flowing.

Who said AMD could do no wrong?
Yes these vulnerabilities are there, BUT they are low level and far less serious than the report made out.

I disagree they are 'low level and far less serious'.

The simple fact there are so many different exploits available is very disturbing.

You do realise there's other vulnerabilities which exist to elevate your rights up to admin? So the point is sort of redundant.
