Posted 18th JunEdited by:"sarden84"

I have been corrected:

This one is "steam Credit" so if we offset that as cashback, it works out like this:
(there is a link what does say cashback im not going insane on msi. but its actually Steam credit thoroughly on ccl)

MSI stream credit back at CCL..

Buy a Ryzen CPU and And MSI B550 and get steam credit.

deal is also available at SCAN, Ebuyer, The Box, Overclockers and i believe nova..

this is an example here at CCL, so compare the other sellers out there, one maybe better then the other per each line MB Line and depending on the cost of their CPU,

Also applicable for 3100 3300x 3600x 3700x 3800x 3900x too.. (dif levels of credit
back: see more here: cclonline.com/pag…am/

there is also a Tri and quad Steam credit if u buy a case/cooler by MSI, that would be a mind field to go though.... maybe if im bored.

problem with these is Amazon is a cracker on the cpu's... so that is always a consideration, heres a rough ones on CCL, so u can reg click the links to see this,

So just a guide to help u get going.

beyond that is likely to be ddr5 so that'll be a whole new everything.

Honestly, how often has anyone upgraded cpu without also needing to change motherboard? I'm not sure I ever have...

So one option is to save £50+ with b450 and benefit from (likely) all new gen sata, nvme, pci4, ddr5 etc in a few years

Great work B550 boards are very expensive from the look of it...
Looks a bit complicated, just bought the 3700x from currys ebay for £252 so not too keen on trying to figure out if I could have got a better deal
B550 boards have better vrms, but ask yourself whether you need the rest of the features like dual graphic cards, pcie4 and usb 3.2. I wouldnt rule out B450.

Are you sure it's a cashback and not Steam Credit*?

Well.. On the contrary I don't think so... Ryzen 5000 series will likely use DDR5 memory and will require new boards with new socket (unless 5000 will end up being 4000 refresh due to lack of competition from Intel then there may be a chance)

B550 boards don't seem to be as cheap as I was expecting, perhaps just because they have only just been released. Is there any point getting one of these at the moment over a X570?

Pros of an X570 is more mature so better stability of the BIOS etc. and generally a better quality with more features due to them being stupidly expensive at launch.
Cons of an X570 the active cooling of the chipset with a stupid little fan.

Personally I'd just get a good B450 or X470 given that AM4 is not going to be about in 2021 because PCIE4 will have very little real world use for most.
Isn’t there an extra £25 cashback on this, for leaving a review? I’m sure i read this the other day.

Also i think Currys were also applicable with this deal, though not sure if Currys Ebay counts. There was a discount code you could use on Ebay, which got the 3600 at a pretty good price.

I'm due a new pc build too but waiting till they announce the new gpu's, I knows it's gonna be a few months tho
Heat for sheer effort alone
Still using my Crosshair Hero 6 and Ryzen 1700 OCed, still not found any reason to upgrade it.

May get a 3700 when I do eventually upgrade, possibly next year.
I'm still trying to decide which ITX board to buy, the MSI B550I for £190 or the MSI B450I for £114
Wanted an Micro board, but this is tempting. Makes the Mobo £150ish? Still running a 2500k and definitely feeling it at this point. The clear weak link in some games.

That is when you purchase ASUS.. not MSI
Personally, I'd wait until the new CPU's are out later this year before choosing a board.

I'm no expert on this, but aside from being compatible out the box with the upcoming 4000 series cpu's, I believe the B550/X570 boards will also work for faster NVMe drives, which is a big improvement over SATA.

I totally agree on the point made by @The_Pope about rarely upgrading a cpu without also upgrading the motherboard. I upgrade my pc every 5 years or so and usually things have moved on a least one, possibly 2 generations by then.
I can't decide between b450, x570 and b550. Looking for a micro atx board. It's basically cost vs faster pci lanes for the nvme storage at this point.

I've read all sorts of material but still can't decide. I am siding with the above argument that I will probably buy another board if I ever do upgrade my cpu again. Kinda have the 3700x in mind for this build.
i must admit for you folks there is a hell of alot to consider now, not easy........ alot of choices which is great news.

i will still swinging some B450 aspects still no doubt about it, if we take something like the asus B450 £66 / vs £145 b550

thats a big epic jump, and someone on a certain budget well..... that is a GPU change and then some.... got to factor in all aspects at each level each buyer is at,

and if someone whacking a ton down now, are they going to go for zen3 as an upgrade or will they ride it out if they buy now for next gen after that.... alot to consider.

and time folks perhaps might upgrade say black fri / jan sales, good period. they can always save now get B450...... sell the mb/cpu set as they market really really nice on ebay n gumtree, get a discounted B550 and then zen3....

but ive always said, more n more folks at every upgrade these days just aint swapping parts out, they desire new cases, and solid used old systems are good sellers too for complete fresh builds, pc's are getting like apple products these days.

In real world if you are a gamer or normal user then NVME isnt much faster than sat never mind pcie 4. Look at any review or vid on youtube to see the small speed advantage. They are useful if you are constantly moving very large files around.

In any event I think the freebies are manufacturers trying to get you to bite because they know how much more expensive their product is. Once things settle prices will fall like for X570. Obviously you can always wait, but I think things are aligning with CV19 and release dates to make Black Friday to start to look attractive. Memory down,GPU out, motherboard price settled.
Edited by: "999tigger" 18th Jun
The new chipsets coming out will be the last gen anyway before they change away from AM4, AMD have said so themselves. I am probably going to go with a B450 board as that has all the features I’ll need for the next 3-4 yrs. After that I am definitely gonna want to change the lot out anyway as USB-C will be commonplace, PCIE4 cards and nvme will be cheaper, AMD will have a new socket and we’ll likely be looking at DDR5 as standard.

Agreed, it was touted as being the budget option over x570 but seemingly they're charging a wedge for some of them. At the pre-deal price, for an additional 40ish quid I'd put my money into an Aorus x570 Master.

Edit: I didn't read the deal properly and then realised it included the 3600 as well
Edited by: "thezoidberg" 18th Jun
Good points all, thanks for the feedback.

Do you guys think the B550 board will be aligned price wise with the B450 in a month or so? I'm expecting prices to settle once there is more supply. It's only been out a couple of days.

There is definitely a lot to think about these days, I'm also flip flopping on processor between getting a 3300X or the 5600. Most say that for gaming there is not much difference, but future games (when PS5/XBox X come out) will make use of more cores.

Having said all that I'm currently upgrading from an Intel i5-750 with 8GB of DDR3 Ram and a Geeforce GTX 1050Ti, so whatever I do I'm expecting a big jump in performance.
Edited by: "TonyFresco" 18th Jun
these boards are expensive, might aswel get a cheap x570?
X470 boards are few and far between now due to X570 so no doubt by the start of next year it'll be hard to source a B450 so they'll have to lower the B550 prices to about where the B450 is now.

I'm hoping to get another B450 for a build as they clear stock but with the supply shortages due to recent events they might simply go out of stock without a price reduction.
That motherboard looks like its into some serious domination
Currently on a Ryzen 1700 with a b450 board, will this setup make much of a difference?

Noooooooooooooooo
I’m going b550 as my case has a usb type c on the front panel and argb. So to get a board that has both these features is a b550 mid range. Or super expensive x570. But just holding out for some reviews first.
I can't seem to find anywhere that MSI list the elegible retailers for this promotion. Could I not buy separately the CPU from Amazon?
