The CPU is £155, and the Mobo £110 on Amazon separately. Is the 8GB stick of RAM worth £85? It's not a bad deal, but you'd expect some savings buying all three at once? Just my opinion

Is someone going to explain why its getting cold votes as would be helpful to know

You are paying a premium to put some ram and a cpu in a motherboard. If you went with slightly slower RAM (doesnt affect the i5 8400 too much to use slower memory) and use a gigabyte z370 motherboard instead then cost from amazon is RAM (Corsair Vengence 2400 Mhz 2 x 4gb) £78, Cpu (i5 8400) £154, Motherboard (Gigabyte z370p) £87 = Total is £319 so you are paying a £30 premium for slightly faster ram that for this intel chip wont make much of a difference and for someone to slot ram and cpu into motherboard

2 x 8GB? If not a typo, that's awesome!

Not a bad deal if you want to buy everything all in one go, though if you shop around you might be able to save urself a little bit.

Heat from me though,

shouldnt give up that easy mate. Learn from mistakes etc etc.
Plus fixing bent pins is pretty easy (unless it fell on the kitchen floor and you accidentally stood on it. 5 times)

Hi r200ti yes it was about 10 years ago it happened did swiftly move on to high spec laptops not long after that. Cut a long story very short but have ended up currently with a inferior ddr3 mobo that has sata 2 running a ssd had no bt/wi-fi or usb3 however my processor is worth nearly £100 on the 2nd hand market mobo maybe £30 same with ram and I have £75 sitting in amazon as gift card refund doing nothing and a 1050ti gpu waiting for an upgrade to play some better games. I did sell on that cpu and didn't lose much on my initial outlay obviously it was reusable to the right person

Sorry a typo but if you check newegg uk and are a new customer then can get discount code NEW18GBR for 15 quid off 100 quid spend then can get 16gb 3000 mhz ddr4 ram for around 120 imported and taxed. Cant post that as newegg isnt allowed
No point getting that Z370 board as you won’t be overclocking this non K chip.

Thats a nice little deal.
Bought the 8400 last year and built my own rig, had to wait almost a year till prices got a little ! better to get the graphics card, am very impressed with the capability though, running 8GB and a cheap SSD, (cheapish case), it still cost £490, as a starter package this is a great deal for someone who is wanting to build their first computer, add some M2 memory and a good card and you are above average for Fortnite and Medal.

Think they are selling on convenience for people who are unsure about compatibility rather than people who look for lowest price. I would not buy non-corsair ram.

Aren't the pins in the motherboard now rather than on the chip? This means that you can't unbend them. I did the same thing in the haswell days, mainly I think down to going with the stock heat sink which is fiddly to get on
Edited by: "Shard" 29th May 2018
Why bother with a Z370 board with a non-unlocked chip? Seems a waste to me, save about £100 your cash and get slightly slower DDR4 and a H310 board.

I don't see any point in the pre-build bit, given you still have to assemble the rest of the machine, they've done the easiest bit for you.

You'd have to be VERY ham-fisted to bend the pins on a Intel motherboard really (I know people do it). But there are things that are way more tricky. about building a PC than that. And really the entire building a PC thing is so easy now, if you can build IKEA furniture without getting a hammer stuck in your eye then you can build a PC.

Besides, you install the CPU, Cooler, and RAM while the motherboard is still in it's box.

The '2x4' sticks of Ram are selling for 100 quid. I don't know why you 'ask a question' when the answer is available.

I just took a look on NewEgg and I don't see what you are talking about. They do NOT include import fees in their shipping costs until you click checkout.

This is the cheapest (read, I wouldn't recommend) RAM available at 2x8, the Team T-Force 3000 mhz. Again, would never suggest to buy this RAM. GEIL value RAM is 5 quid more, but hey, let's just look at the actual costs.

If you don't apply the 15 quid code, it's 162.60, 168 if you don't want to risk the unknown brand.

So yeah, that's not a deal at all considering you can get Vengence 3000 mhz off Amazon UK, shipped, for 162.99.

I didn't have all the time in the world yesterday to check every site for the cheapest RAM after the CPU and MOBO.

The ram kit i was using as a reference has changed price unfortunately. However the next cheapest 3000mhz ram (team group) is 143 shipped and taxed using that code (which I doubt many have a newegg account so most people can use) and team group ram is good quality. Or for 134 quid you can get 2400 mhz ram which is 10% than uk prices

This isn't a deal even with the code. That is the price in the Uk right now on Amazon, without shopping around.


140 quid for 3000mhz Crucial Ram: amazon.co.uk/Cru…031

The newegg stuff is only competitive after you get the 15 quid, one time, discount code. (I can't use it, I have already purchased from NewEgg). But if I did want to use it, I'd like to be getting the full value of my one time use 'first time' code, and this isn't it.

Fair, the answer to your question is quite simply, yes, 85 quid for that RAM is a deal. It's not a blazing hot deal, you could pick your parts and get roughly the same. Also, 2x4 is a bad setup, I prefer 2x8 as it leaves room for real expansion, getting 4x4 is a bit low, in my eyes.

Agreed, also I used to have bad experiences with 4 sticks back in the day. I had a Q6600 @ 4GHz on a custom water loop and 4 sticks of OCZ DDR2 400. With 3 sticks it was fine and would overclock to 1066 (from 800), but add a 4th stick and the OC on the CPU and RAM just wouldn't remain stable. Got 2x 8GB DDR3 2400 CL11 with my Xeon now and a touch of an FSB OC

Which Xeon (core count) did you end up with?
I have an 'E3-1231 v3'. It's basically an i7 4770 without the iGPU... It's 4 cores/8 threads. I somehow brought it from a guy on ebay with 0 feedback for £75, it's still worth £140 now I managed to flash an old BIOS on to a Z87 MSI Gaming board which allows enhanced turbo core (3.8GHz on all cores). Its a shame that these chips aren't K's, as being for a server they run on such low voltage

The Xeon line specifically has no room for much overhead as they are designed run within a tight head threshold. Neat that you were able to do that.
Is it not a better deal to get this bundle with 8gb 2133mhz RAM instead of 3200mhz for £319?
Bundle is worth about £355-£360 if you shop around for the parts. The deal is therefore a small discount if you want to buy exactly those parts.

You could buy similar parts for less, however.

If you had posted that would be a much better deal.
I'm still considering this bundle.

The board appears to be the best budget clockable version, and although the 8400 is locked, you could always upgrade at a later date to a K chip which adds some future proofing (for v little extra outlay over the higher end new 'cheaper' boards). Right?

The fact they fit the CPU for you is a nice little bonus.

I did notice that the 16gb RAM option is Crucial brand without heat spreaders, until you reach 3000mhz option where it reverts to being Corsair Vengeance, at which point things become unnecessarily expensive. Not sure the spreaders make a blind bit of difference though.
