Surely you mean comic cold?

and that's just a taste of some of the side-splitters we'll have on the show.

Putting aside the risk of import fees, unless you're going down the mITX route then it's a bit of a no-brainer to go for Ryzen over this.

I'm still a fan of the Intel Cpu and with all the nightmare story's with DDR ram not been compatible and even killing some of the expensive dd4 duel channel kits. and with the messing about of updating bios all the time to try and fix compatability with boards and ram. I'm still going for a i7 when the prices drop this year . as Intel release the new generation Cpu older stock prices will fall

A bit optimistic, as that hasn't happened in previous generations. Minor price drops where a retailer takes the hit might be possible, but Intel haven't dropped any prices AFAIK since the Athlon64 days. And so far, it looks like they are ignoring Ryzen since cutting prices would lose them more profit than losing a few sales to AMD, for now.

As for the rest, Ryzen's memory compatibility hasn't been that bad for a brand new platform as long as people stick to the official speeds of 2400/2666 rather than trying to overclock and get 3000+. Of course, Ryzen gains a fair bit with higher memory clocks so no wonder people try.

* Brand new platform being the important point. Even Intel with it's $12+ billion R&D budget (vs AMD at under $1 billion), has had trouble with new platforms before. X99 (which was the first to support DDR4) had lots of teething issues. Skylake's DDR4 support was solid but a lot slower than Kabylake's (about the only real difference between the two). So far, we've had one leaked review of Skylake-X (from Hexus and Bit-Tech - same owners - who seem to have gotten their hands on a i9-7900X without Intel's NDA) and there seem to be constant BIOS updates too. Sanctioned reviews are due tomorrow AFAIK, so it will be interesting to see if X299 suffers from any teething issues.

Latest bios updates are almost fixing every memory issue now.

Yes, I know. Just waiting for a tech site to review with the latest updates now. When I last looked at DDR4 prices (at 2x16GB kits), the G.Skill Samsung b-dies PC3200 were almost 70% more than the cheapest AData PC3200 ones so once those are are confirmed to work it will make a big difference to the overall costs.

the standard corsair 3200mhz lpx seems to be working for most now too

Back on topic, I have had a few things from Play Asia, although not for several years now; I dont remember any issues with tax + duty to be paid; but there is always the chance it will be stopped and you will get a bill.

I have had a large £150 item with no extras, and an item that was 2p over (currency fluctuations), that I got charged £12 (**** admin charge mostly!!).

The SLOWEST shipping option is usually the safest when it comes to avoiding customs duty.

This processor also supports up to 64GB of DDR4-2400/2133

IS THAT THE BEST it can do?

I have this CPU. As I wasnt going to over clock I didnt need a K series. THis processor Does the Job for my gaming. Got it with a Geforce1070 and works like a dream! I Only got it back 3 months ago for £180 so this is a great price.
