I'm enjoying smooth gaming on my 1600. Wasnt sure if the upgrade from a 2500k was worth it but being able to:

Have 2 smallish VMs running, one of which is mining monero on 3 to 6 cores depending if i adjust it.
browse a s**t ton of tabs in palemoon including gdax yt soundcloud blah blah
play justcause2/metroLL/Stalker smooth as butter.
i also sometimes forget to close AcidPro7 when doing the above.

Cpu fan is at 1570-2000 and as quiet as my old hyper212 that i havent bother swapping in, whilst OC to 3.9ghz, 50*c whilst the above is going on.

2500k (4.5ghz) was spikey just browsing and gaming.

Haha, not sure that’s quite the same thing though - I would say it’s closer to hundreds of thousands of motorway miles (eg an awful lot of low/moderate intensity) vs. stop-start short distance town driving totalling low tens of thousands of miles. Which one is worse is highly debatable. Not that a GPU has an odometer by law or otherwise.

I'd pay 10 quid extra as the 1080 overclocks really well. The 1070ti is overpriced. Unless the 1080 price has been bumped to compensate.


Well, the MSRP is fair, but the real world pricing has been ****** for a long time. I can't see any 1080's close to 430 atm, and we can't take sale prices as 'fair' because well, there will be 1070 ti's that rock up for 30-50 quid less too, soon enough.

Depending on your mini-ITX case, the mini form factor isn't always needed - I have a full size 1070 in my Raven RV02 case which is just 10cm wide.The problem with some smaller FF cards is that the heat dissipation is worse, leading to performance throttling - which makes for worse value for money.

IT JUST WORKS and has super low power consumption. Also has loads of wireless mice, keyboard and bluetooth headphones hooked up. Runs windows 10 quickly.

MSI Z170A Mpower Gaming Titanium - BIOS Flashed to Support Kaby Lake CPUs - With FREE MSI Core Frozr L CPU Cooler £119.99 @ Novatech

Found 20th SepFound 20th Sep
Great motherboard with a great feature set. Comes with a MSI Core Frozr L 120mm CPU Cooler

They also sell a Gigabyte Z170 board for £69 delivered which supports Kaby Lake.

Not sure why this board is considered a deal...

Ye I have to say not that impressed here I mean maybe if it were the z270 xpower T it would be worth considering but now with CFL so close only to be seeing only the z170's (two gen old) drop now is sad really, this is why they will end up with so much old stock they hold onto it for to long, the smart retailers will drop the z270's down around now on the run up to CFL in October, dumping as much of it as they can, now were on a new chipset,cpu,platform with no backward compatibility, your effectively asking for people to buy not only an old board but also an old cpu to go with it and for around the same cost as the new CFL, that's not gonna happen, yes ok sure some people already have kaby/sky lake but those who do so also already have a mobo for it.

Those trying to pawn off old z170's are wasting there time and should of thought of doing it nov/dec/last year and jan this year, in-fact even those trying to dump z270's now will have a hard job because again CFL will be priced very close and will be new and btr? I suppose but on top of that everyone's buying ryzen stuff so even those few people that are left and looking to jump to a platform it goes as follows #1- CFL, then #2- Ryzen then #3- the old z270's, retailers are in a bad spot here no doubt the longer they wait the harder it will be to dump z270 stock and unlike the last 8 years or so there has been no other competitive platform so old intel will not hold there value this time round, geez there having trouble holding there value new at the moment..

To look at it this way why buy this z170 mpower and an now old cpu vs an x370/b350 am4 board and newer high core, cheaper cpu, and get more bang for your buck?

The cooler is a nice touch sure but this
amazon.co.uk/MSI…r=1-1&keywords=x370
Or
amazon.co.uk/ROG…r=1-23&keywords=x370
Or
amazon.co.uk/MSI…r=1-24&keywords=x370

Paired with a 1600 is higher core count, cheaper, newer, and has m2 straight to the cpu, against a z170 board it's a no brainer, against a z270 again not really a tough choice, retailers are in a tough spot this time round, no mans land for selling off old stock, they btr come up with something or there gonna have a lot of right-off's.

sorry but this is cold.

Better Z270 spec boards for similar price or just a little more.

Got a 15£ surcharge for delivery to Northern Ireland.

Northerners have it tough

Just ordered. Quidco at 1.7% also for an extra quid? Was waiting to see if the ti's dropped to £100ish for the 'household' computer rebuild but this is an excellent price for a clocked 1050

I can get 70-80 FPS maxed out on a 1070 with 6600K with no overclock. Medium/ultra view distance I get 100+ except in those 'PUBG moments", I dunno what that guy is doing.

1525MHz core and just above 1950Mhz memory. I'm really happy with it as well. Was running a R9 390 so this is quite the upgrade. Play mostly Rainbow 6 Siege on a 1080p 144hz monitor, so with the R9 390 I had to turn the graphics down to medium settings and I got an average of 120fps. Now I can almost max out the settings and I get an average 170fps.

Didn't try to push it to the max though, core wouldn't run stable at 175 so set it back to 150 and left it there, and memory I just set at 400 and left it there.Edit: oh and temp hitting max 81 when stress testing (mind I only have 2 case fans in a Fractal Design Define S, 1 intake and 1 outtake)

Running on air in a small form factor case. +87 voltage, +400 on memory and around +150 on core. Temps around high 70's which isn't great but wont really hurt the card.

For example last month i got a i7 4970 desktop with Win 8.1 Pro for less than £250- it was the last one and i stumbled across it while looking for a replacement PC. An i7 4970 CPU on its own costs around that!


yeah that's a pretty decent CPU, great price indeed. I've looked at the warehouse for GPUs about 10-15 times over the last couple of years, never ever found a decent deal

All those better offers from Amazon, could you link to those deals please?

Plus it has 2 yr warranty and still cheaper than eBay pricesReading your op back I assume you sold it to upgrade so probably not a great suggestion I don't know what their higher end card prices are like thoughSeeing as the price jumps are quite big atm from a rx460 to a rx470/480 this is what I'm planning on doing to a cheap build for the kids, as the r9's seemed reasonably priced until the price hike. When I actually get round to buying the rest of the parts


The older r9 cards use over 3x the power of these cards. The 460 is basically a 470 cut in half

Mining is skewing the prices of the decent high-end cards and this RX 460 is basically 2 generations old with Vega pretty much on top of us.
