    Would say if you can stretch another £40 the Palicomp 5600x / 3060ti might be a better deal.
    skinrush's avatar
    I wouldn't say Palicomp are particularly great to deal with, from my experience.
    When you order, they are often out of stock of components, and ask you to pay more for different components.
    Palicomp will definitely try to hard sell you additional warranty packages and other guff several times before actually sending your item out too.
    In terms of this system, I've had a couple of these in the past (with better GPUs) and they are pretty good. Agree with the RAM comment above. The MB is fussy.

    Worth noting that the fans are absolutely tragic in these pre builds by Lenovo. We have two of the 5700G/3060Ti variants and I replaced mine with a box of Arctic P12 PWM fans for £22 from Scan. Amazing fans in their own right but now the rig is silent and somewhat cool.

    The stock cooler is junk, even with the thermal paste changing. Although adding thermal grizzly helped a lot with keeping the CPU fan at low RPM.

    The GPUs used are basic MSI units with a custom frame. Opened it up thinking it would be a quick repaste job but nope. Well worth doing, as hot spot temperature dropped from 89c to 83c max, and GPU die from 75c to 70c. Used basic thermal putty off Amazon (K5 Pro?) and piled it onto the VRMs and pretty much everything that made contact with the heatsink.

    As stated above, the RAM is annoyingly restricted despite the fact that XMP is actually on the Motherboard, but Lenovo have it locked down. There are 3rd party BIOS available to unlock it, but use at your own risk.

    Finally you cannot control fans manually. It's especially infuriating that in the summer heat I'm not able to set my case fans to ramp up quickly when my GPU gets going. Even on the "performance" setting, the fan curve is almost akin to what you would see on an Apple device. It will sit on its hands until the CPU hits 60-70c, usually from the GPU heat radiating upwards, until they kick in. All fans are directly connected to the motherboard, Lenovo just blocks all access from apps such as Fan Control.

    Ideally you want the case fans linked to GPU temp so you can remove all that hot air before it has a chance to build, but every time it's a case of the heat building up very quickly before temps stabilise after 5-10 mins.

    Crucial RAM works fine, but CL22 is painful for Ryzen. I upgraded to 32GB for like £24 on Amazon, as 16GB is now a noticeable bottleneck for modern games if you have things like steam, discord, Spotify etc open in the background as they all seem to use 400-500MB of RAM each.

    I plan on replacing the CPU cooler with a Noctua at some point, as it apparently works with Intel LGA brackets despite being AMD. Then finally the motherboard/RAM (3200/CL14) and the PSU will be replaced along with the case.

    TLDR: decent prebuilt but the only thing of value is the GPU. They're essentially an MSI Ventus card with small mods to fit Lenovo case better.

    Finally, after years these Legion's being posted as a deal at extortionate prices with everyone lapping them up without knowledge of quality etc have now been outed with the truth. They're trash. Owned one for 20 mins before I put it back in the box and returned in pandemic days. Bravo to you for speaking the truth and letting it be known how these really are. Locked down.

    Additional £20 off a £500 spend for BLC holders.

    Shame these Lenovo rigs require special JEDEC RAM for the higher RAM speeds
    fishmaster's avatar
    This statement sounds like it means something but in fact it doesn't. For DRAM the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council, or JEDEC, sets guidelines for memory speed, timings, and voltage. JEDEC just means RAM is qualified to work within certain specifications. It isn't 'special' RAM.

    Originally posted to say that I had this system and that the motherboard was a trash stock Lenovo B550 with extremely limited settings and I suspect is the reason I've had some problems with wifi and bluetooth connectivity. Wasn't sure if this system used the same motherboard but I suspect it does as there's no detail on it on the product page.

    I bought mine as a Ryzen 7 5700g for around £750 last year via a Hotukdeal post and it's mostly served me well, but I wouldn't recommend as a long-term system purely because of the issues I've had with the motherboard.
    Stixxan's avatar
    Was about to post something very similar. The motherboard is really poor. I've had endless issues with USB connectivity in the 12 months I've had mine.

    I've had an unsuccessful on-site repair, and an off-site repair where the computer came back with a loose graphics card, and no power.

    Wouldn't recommend a Lenovo pre-build desktop to anyone unfortunately.

    8GB or 12GB RTX3060?
    Ryan_Winks's avatar
    Full Spes has it down as a 12GB version
  7. Sarden84's avatar
    Noticed the chaps above have mention the palicomp AMD Velocity 5600X/3060Ti at £690 on here and then their penny deal on top to exchange it in: 5700X/3060 12GB - that in its own right is cracking, but not everyone has £690.00 and they need it with windows.

    so cracking up to main stream X is gonna be unaffordable for most.

    Palicomp closest 5600G/Windows/3060 System AMD Ryzen Value comes in at £680 when topping up in the gpu sector from their AMD6600 at £550.00 (-50 less if remove win, but again this is about win)

    So we have to use the later one in its Terms.

    CCL is also 649.99 and 1% cashback makes it £642

    £642 vs £680

    Both 5600g / Windows / PSU / Case level.

    512GB VS 1TB
    B550 Green type vs A520 tuf (thats a debate alone)

    The other alt is perhaps

    AWD 6650XT - 5500/6650xt/480gb/16gb +windows on it 659 (or 569 without)
    5500 performances is like 5600G but without the back up Vega, but 6650Xt dominates 3060.
    obvious without win u can incs cpu from 5500 to 5600 n up.

    If someone wants to get into pc gaming at 1080/1440p that’s actually a great starting points at a reasonable price
  9. SirSurboy's avatar
    I have the Intel i5 version and it’s been a great PC.
  10. billypick's avatar
    Does anyone know if this PC can be found frequently at this kind of price point, or would this be considered a real ‘deal’? I’m looking for something exactly like this, however, would prefer to hold off a few months if it’s likely to return to a similar price?

    Thanks so much
    malct1's avatar
    I can't see it going any lower unless Box or CCL sell them on ebay with a 20% off promotion. I have the BLC and i can't even get the link to work to get £30 off.
    Like all things PC, Hardware is always getting updated so today's tech is tomorrows old tech. I am looking at buying one, But looking around first since its a impulse buy
  11. Sarden84's avatar
    Windows is the most important part of this system base when it comes to market challenges in VS battles.
    (if u want to get into that)...

    Excellent find OP, (or supported product)

    Mind u; i can think of multiable ways on kickings its backside in many other builds, but it does hit the head on price "name" "windows though so it has its own exclusive method on being on it.

    and their is many happy customers with these Lenovo's on this Platform, some have been returned because people has higher expectation on the systems when they bought from a higher cost supplier.
    Lenovo C/S is debatable, Box is fairly allright.

    £649.99 easy buyer, no frills. mum dad co for their kids, happy gaming. simple set up. done. its £650 what more u want. (edited)
    sisqoboy's avatar
    Cheers, I might add Windows 11 Home to the title then...
  12. Thomas_Pereira's avatar
    Good deal for an easy buy and get what you want.
  13. Limmy's avatar
    Seems alright. Loads of folk will moan they could build a better machine for £40 though

    Check out Daft Punk's new single "Get Lucky" if you get the chance. Sound of the summer.
  14. Smoggy1970's avatar
    This is a great deal!

    No need for custom builds unless you are a tinkerer.
    reubenno's avatar
    Or if you value having a motherboard with more than 4 USB 2.0 rear ports.

    The reason people custom build is so that they can pick the parts that suit them best. If you wanted to put a more power hungry GPU in this in the future, you'd need to upgrade the PSU.
    With a custom build, you can just get a more powerful PSU from the start and not have to worry about upgrading down the line.
  15. Neostar's avatar
    Decent price for a pre-built
  16. kratos2019's avatar
    dam, I don't think buying the parts and building yourself would be cheaper. great deal.
    beaversrus's avatar
    About the same if not a few pounds cheaper/ dearer but not locked down ram (edited)
  17. Mr_Jo's avatar
    £629.99 with Unidays.
    malct1's avatar
    I guess you need to be a student to get the cheap price? Or is there a hack ?
  18. AnderThePanda's avatar
    I have the r7 5800/3070 variant. It's been great so far. Annoyingly the ram comments are correct. If you're really bothered, b550 matx boards are relatively cheap to buy now, as is ram.
  19. kittendoggie's avatar
    I see people mentioning windows. You can get windows 10/11 license keys for a couple of £s. Not a big deal. I would not factor it in the price of the deal.
    Michael_Finnigan's avatar
    Can you? Mind telling me how?
  20. billypick's avatar
    Just a heads up, it appears to me the price has now increased ever so slightly…
