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

Maybe a tad confusing on the title, so will try and make it a bit easier below.
I know we've seen the R5 3600 down at £139.98 a week or so ago, which is now gone. But basing this comparison on that because it was so recent.

Next Best:
  • CPU - £139.89 (no longer this price, now averagely (£165)
  • Motherboard - Current Next Best £130.49
  • Cooler - £42.98
Total with recent CPU pricing - £313.36
Total with today's pricing - £338.47

Here the price difference on the bundles is £20 and essentially the x model has slightly higher clocks and a 30W higher TDP. (Spec comparison at foot of description)

Maybe good for people wanting the cooler and this particular board, which does get good reviews. Just some more options for folks looking to build just now.They are assembled and ready to pop into your build, which might be ideal for first time builders out there.

"Assembled and tested by our technical team, the CPU, cooler, motherboard and memory are assembled with BIOS settings configured ready to be installed into a case"

Be sure to select the CM cooler as seen here:

RAM options priced separately from the base bundle, so you can see the pricing clearly. I chose the faster RAM as it's only a few quid more than the 3000Mhz



The First bundle looks like this - Click Me For Link

  • Ryzen 5 3600
  • MSI X470 GAMING PRO MAX Motherboard
  • Free Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition
Total £299

You can also add 16GB (2x8GB) Sticks of Adata XPG Gammix RAM @ 3200Mhz
New Total £369.98



There's also the 3600x to consider, which normally I'd probably not say was worth it vs 3600 because of the price/performance differences. It's £20 difference at the moment though... Click Me For Link

  • Ryzen 5 3600x
  • MSI X470 GAMING PRO MAX Motherboard
  • Free Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition
Total £319.99

You can also add 16GB (2x8GB) Sticks of Adata XPG Gammix RAM @ 3200Mhz
New Total £389.98

True and I agree but the average person wouldn't be over clocking this CPU, for gamers who need extra performance sure but not the average casual gamer.

For general use the stock cooler is more than sufficient. It's been documented by quite a few review sites.

This is a good deal for someone who needs these specific parts but for most people they are buying stuff they don't necessarily need.

Swap the x470 for a b550 when it drops, keep the stock cooler and save yourself the money.

I made the mistake of buying components that I didn't need when I built my first pc and now I'm building my second and realising what a waste of money those purchases were. Just don't want someone else to make that same mistake

Absolute bargain.
Nice deal @Ken
I've heard the stock CPU cooler provided free along with it is more than enough.

Price wise this is a deal yes but I don't really see why you would buy an old board (b550 about to drop) and a cooler that's not necessarily needed,

Just my 2 cents, I could be wrong, I haven't voted either way.

As always thank you for posting. Wish there would be more deals on GPUs!

MSI cards have the games and £32 steam voucher on the 5600m. Probably the best deal atm.
I have a X470 Gaming Pro Max, bought it new for ~£110 a couple of months ago (I see it is £120 now at Overclockers UK). Not a bad deal if you want these specific components, but far from being a bargain in my view

You don't have to buy thermal paste with this motherboard combo deal, the downside would be you can't be sure parts were not used before, but I don't believe people would return the 3600 so chances are minimal.

Agreed on the cooler. Stock cooler is actually much better than people would expect and if you aren't overclocking it's more than sufficent, even then the Wraith Spires can handle cooling on overclocking somewhat decently. The stock cooler also has LEDs for those into that.

What was your actual mistake, youve mentioned that you did it but not really expanded on it?

I am about to build a new PC and I wouldnt mind knowing the answer. What is it about the b550 that would be desirable over the x470 other than price?
MTIA.
Bought a similar bundle a couple of months ago, they didnt set the ram to xmp profile but other than that i was happy.

If you buy it just checkout a video on setting ram xmp profiles if you dont know how.
Wouldn't bother there are loads of complaints on their Facebook page about taking money and not delivering or even answering customers

My mistake was buying parts for my PC that I didn't necessarily need, like the most powerful CPU etc.

It would be like me buying a 3900x now for 1440p 144hz gaming, it's overkill and not needed. Hence I bought the 3600 recently and when b550 drops I will grab that too.

The advantage with buying the b550 is that it's more future proof, but again it all depends on your needs, if you upgrade every 1-2 years then it doesn't matter what board you buy both will take you through the next 2 years fine.

If anything the b550 dropping will likely reduce prices for last gen boards so probably best waiting and picking up a good deal if you don't mind last gen boards.
I got a very similar deal from AWD last month with the 3600X on a B450 Tomahawk Max motherboard (I didnt opt for the installed RAM) for £289. Very happy - it came when they said would and works well. The stock cooler supplied as part of my deal is absolutely fine - not too noisy at all.

Just swapped out my stock cooler for a Scythe Ninja 5 CPU just because I’m sat working at home now and my room was getting hot. Idle temps went from 45-50 to 35-40 and when I play a game like PUBG it has lowered from 80-60. Made a lot more comfortable to sit in for longer sessions ie working 9-5 then maybe 2-3 hours gaming. But the stock is OK. And I probably wouldn’t of changed it if it wasn’t for the pandemic.
I don't think this is a great deal, considering a 3600, motherboard and RAM come to £300... uk.pcpartpicker.com/lis…znH


Also a 3600X for £20 more is not worth it at all

I've also heard that B550 might not be worth buying due to DDR5 soon being released and as the B550 MB only support DDR4, that upgrade path won't exist. I still think it's worthwhile to wait for the B550 release as prices may not be that much different to B450 and you can get a newer for similar pricing.

Yeah, it's definitely not looking great in release already. Especially if "AM5" also requires a new motherboard? I don't know a lot about MB tech but is it possible for a AM5 chip to even work on a AM4 MB?

Some people may not want to upgrade to the 4000 series but apparently vast improvements do exist from the 3000 series. But even then, the B450 Max supports it. MSI released all the boards they will support for the 4000 series. You can pick up a mATX from Amazon for £60. I think that will be cheaper than waiting for the B550 release.

I am not sure myself and an currently building a pc

This was the logic I applied in buying the 3600 & a 212 instead of the 3600X.
What is the differance from the memory upgrade and corsair vengence memory upgrade
Nice price. I am quite interested in this deal from them.

I have 16gb of 2400mhz ram at the moment do you think that would handicap this setup too much until I can get something faster like 3200?
