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

I've bought AWD bundles before and they've always been great. Link is just an example, any compatible motherboard should work with this deal.

Please note - this is not a 3900x. It's the lower-tdp, lower clocked 3900. However, for some workloads the lower TDP actually allows longer boosts, so the performance is near-as-makes-no-difference identical to the 3900x, and will actually exceed it sometimes. In my opinion, this is a less power-hungry 3900x for £100 off!

In terms of performance vs the 3900x (will vary by workload but a good indicator):

cpubenchmark.net/cpu…563
cpubenchmark.net/cpu…493

Chip Single Core/MultiCore
3900 3019/32899
3900x 2938/31943

This is an OEM chip, so will come attached to the board, and includes a Prism RGB cooler. Hell of a lot of CPU for the money.

That seems to be pretty damn good.
£530 for the board and CPU. Just bought a complete system worth of components including case, Corsair MP510, 32GB ram and 1660 super for the same price. Obviously different realm of power but still 3900x is a lot of cores!

I am dubious about paying a premium for x570 for the sake of PCIe 4.0.

But considering the power and potential (unproven that is) future proofing, £530 isn’t that bad. It used to be just an intel cpu will cost £550-600 not more than a year or two ago.

Same or not Ryzen 9 3900X?

It's different. Lower clocks, lower tdp. In terms of performance, this will likely do better in short stints, but in sustained workloads the 3900x will probably be faster.
that's a fantastic deal!

I'm dubious.
You can't really oc these CPUs and these boards won't take ddr5 ,so not really future proof. And what about PCIe 5.0
Not saying people shouldn't but them but I just don't see a real point for me personally.
I'm happy with a b450 and by the time I can't upgrade the CPU anymore I'm sure it will be time for a full upgrade anyhow.

Pretty much. The only thing you are really future proofing is potentially PCIe 4 GPU.

I think in terms of CPU, the zen2+ ie 4000s desktop CPUs meant to slot into AM4 still.

But for sure going to 3900 or 3950 in a couple years time compared with ryzen 5 CPUs will be a big upgrade. I would be very happy with a second hand cheapy 3950x

x570 has the huge nvme benefit. With nvme drives often costing the same or even less (we have had some awesome sabrent and intel 660p deals on here) as sata to be able to invest in nvme when there is price parity is a big winner. And of course you get full speed across as many as you care to jam in.
And nvme isnt just a marginal benefit, for things like editing 4k ive seen huge read speeds - way beyond SATA.
I get the feeling, much like Ryzen itself people arent seeing the benefit of x570. Of course, we dont have intel making silly claims about how amazing it is so that might be why

Re CPU, bargain. considering thats 3800x or whatever intel have at this price, itll eat both alive for performance and do so using much less power.

B450 X470 support NVMe so not sure what you mean. Unless you mean PCI-E 4 NVMe?

Wish the Ryzen Pro 3900 would be sold with B450 boards or separately as I'm trying to find an X570 board without the silly chipset fan and I only need PCI-e 3.0.

Get a X570 board which gives you control over the silly chipset fan, set it to 0% and forget about it.

Yep, I bought my 3900x from them on launch day!

The chipset fan is really unnoticeable IMO. PCI-e 4 SSDs are now cheap enough that you may as well!

I think MSI and ASUS offer fan control? Any other recommendations?

Tiny high pitch frequencies when ramped up will annoy to no end though! Any recommendations on fan controlled motherboards?

I'm certain MSI does. They give you the option select presets, or manual. I adjusted mine to kick in at 65C which should never happen. It's pretty quiet anyway, until it's at 5000RPM
Where does this say it's the PRO variant on their website? The PRO version includes a security co-processor.
