This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Just an example but it works with all their X570 motherboards and it's the only real discount I've seen on the new Ryzen CPUs.

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite is a solid board with a 12 phase VRM.

The extra saving is AWD-IT lets you add a Ryzen CPU to your motherboard as a bundle for less than retail pricing too:

3600 - £178.80 extra (Retail £189) - Save £10
3600X - £215.88 extra (Retail £240) - Save £15
3700X - £295.19 extra (Retail £320) - Save £25
3800X - £353.99 extra (Retail £380) - Save £26
3900X - £443.99 extra (Retail 480) - Save £36

So you save from £10 upto almost £40 whilst getting a solid value X570 board.

They say CPU's come with mounted on the board with the CPU cooler in a seperate box. You don't get the original CPU box.

Their stock system looks to be make believe too, showing availability for the 3900X but also being on pre-order. They also show stock for the 3800X too which I don't think anyone has got in the UK yet.

Sounds like they are binning retail chips, which is not good.

get the cpu but dont bother with x570 board, get the x470 board as the m.2 gen 4 works in the first slot

I don't think they sell binned CPUs so it seems unlikely.

I think only the Gaming 7 X470 board has a VRM of the same quality as the X570 Aorus Elite, and that's more than the X570.

Amd have disabled that because of too many issues

That's the only reason I can think of them doing this.

Might be flogging them to silicon lottery.
looking at the Terms of the steam vouchers i think you might not be elgigeble to them.

"– Any end user customers who purchase a GIGABYTE X570 Mainboard from the participating companies AMAZON, CCL, Ebuyer, Novatech, SCAN or OCUK is eligible to participate."

Seeing how awd-it are not listed.

Unless you want multi NVME drives.
Or just have the cash for a much higher spec board than any 470.

If your going 470, you may aswell go 450

I'd missed that, I'll remove that if that's the case.

Its less of a good deal now unfortunately

Yeah that's a massive no-no for me too, I remember the days of tiny fans on motherboards and them dying after a year or two, I really don't want to go back to that.

Looking at the reviews and stats they are already so aggressively optimised and binned by AMD I don't see what that will get you. It looks like AMD are getting good enough yields they don't have to down bin to make up numbers, and if you are going for a 3900x(and why not at that price) then binning isn't going to impact you because it's just not going to overclock.

@LeonCPC there are a couple of passive x570s. The southbridge gets hot, but the VRM design means it doesn't need a lot of cooling so some boards push a heat pipe up to the VRMs and cool passive or with a single North bridge fan. You can also get it with a block for watercooling from some manufacturers although not worth it for me.

Yeah if I was to go to previous gen I would have gone for a 450. Tomahawk most probably. Anyway the only reason atm realistically to go with a X570 is if you want to future-proof and the better quality of VRMs on any X570 board.

You alway get 'Golden' samples/batches with silicon. Siliconlottery already have a placeholder and binned are going on sale soon.

That's a specialist binning company. Der8auer tested several chips and there was little in it. I really doubt these guys are hunting for golden chips in their stock. Especially with the Ryzen 2s having such little headroom.

Go on then why are they breaking a two warranty sealed products Wouldnt these be seen as used goods?

Only ever seen this done on pre-overclocked bundles

I'll email and ask. I suspect it may be a mistake. They were opening the B450s and X470s to update the BIOS to a compatible one. Not sure why they're doing it for X570 boards.

It does seem rather odd
Mmm, perfect for playing tetris.

None of these chips really have much OC room anyway, and if you do OC, you lose single threaded performance, as there's no way you'll get 4.65ghz all core OC on a 3900x.

What do you mean?
powerbrick14/07/2019 15:00

fairly self explanatory.


Not really. Bin = throw away. Retail = aren't all for retail? Flogging = not binning but retailing. Silicone lottery = no idea where/when/what that is.

AWD-IT are a system integrator so do not use 'Retail Boxed' CPu's. They arrive on a tray which can not be shipped to a customer unless fitted to a board or inside a built PC.

Binning = Retailers Inserting each new CPU into a motherboard and trying to get a good overclock (not all chips can get a good overclock, if it gets a good overclock then it gets binned and sold at a higher price, search silicon lottery on google, a website specifically sells these CPUs.
Silicon Lottery = When a chip overclocks really well, more-so than others, would be deemed to have won the "Silicon Lottery". Not all chips are made equal.

You know the rest. Hope this helps!


Edit - The worry is that AWD-IT are opening all of the CPUs, testing them to see which of them are the best at Overclocking them and either selling them at a higher price, or selling them to Silicon Lottery at a higher price. Which means any CPU you get from AWD-IT will be average and have no real overclocking ability.

But other users have mentioned that it probably isn't worthwhile due to the lack of headroom from these CPUs anyway. But it's just strange to have the CPU mounted with the Mobo (unless it's like a Scan pre-overclocked system).
