Amazon, another seller.[Image]


I saw that, it was one of the newly launched sellers that keep popping up on amazon these days. I nearly got ripped off by one a couple of months back. It took me a month to get £100 back from amazon, and then only because I found the email address of the UK CEO. The bank were ready to do a charge back but I wanted to see how it played out, since then I've been watching a few things like CPUs and SSDs. These sellers appear nearly every day, then they vanish, presumably with someone's money.

The one selling this at £105 was called NANCY CLARK, they often have similar name and rarely mention an address they are trading from. I'm at a loss to work out why amazon aren't stopping this.

TL:DR. Heat, damn good price.
Best price/performance 1080p gaming CPU you can buy right now. Voted hot.

No.

The i5-8400 needs a 300-series motherboard, a b360 would be most appropriate.
Moreover you'll need new DDR4 ram too, as 4th gen was DDR3.

This thread could do with a link to the cheapest b360 board currently available.

The ASRock B360M Pro4 is the the cheapest (but still decent) board to get.

Pair with some cheap 2666mhz/2400mhz RAM and you're all set

How does this compare to the old i7 3770?

Sure, but the comment from Cascadde is spot on, 135 quid for the 8400 is a crazy good price. It can probably handle 4k too, but if you are already footing the 4k price for Monitor, GPU, etc, you will be going for the 8600/8700k CPUs more often.
For the price defo worth considering purchasing much cheaper than the i7 4790 and has 12k passmark score.

The RAM and SSD would work, but the motherboard wouldn't work with this CPU.

Thank you, I am WAY out of my depth when it comes to this subject. Intrinsic to brain surgery.
This is a Ryzen build that includes the processor in the bundle all you need to add it a graphics card and a case with psu.

You have to choose Intel or Ryzen then choose the parts accordingly there are lots of videdos on youtube to show you how to build, if it looks to much better to just buy pre built.

Someone posted the Gigabyte B360M as a cheap option in yesterday's thread for this CPU. I've no idea how the two compare, but the Gigabyte is slightly cheaper. I'm getting tempted to buy to replace my ageing 2500K, but struggling with the fact that RAM is over double what I paid for the same amount when I originally bought the 16GB for the 2500K.

Lower base frequency, Higher processor cores, lower thread count, Slightly higher cache...interesting!
