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

Been looking at getting a new ryzen and saw this on eBay.
It's from CCL and using the pyramid code you can get the CPU , motherboard and ram for around the same price as buying them separate from Amazon. And it's all put together and tested. So no faffing about for people that are scared of busting the CPU and putting the cooler on.
I do start sweating when I'm doing this part of a build, especially if I've got a £300+ CPU in my hand
It's time and peace of mind more than a massive saving but usually these bundles will cost you £40-£50 more than doing it yourself.
Also the motherboard is a good one not some cheap matx
I've dealt with CCL a bit and I know someone will have a bad tale to tell but they've been very good for me.

After a quick look on PCpartpicker, looks like this is a bundle that actually works out cheaper than buying the parts separately. Great find, i'm very tempted as i've been looking at a 3600 for a while but think im waiting out til black friday

I don't understand your point of being scared of putting it together yourself when the cpu, motherboard and ram is the easy part. It's putting into the case and ensuring all the power is connected is more difficult.

Some people don't like to place the CPU in or fit the cooler.
It's not hard but if money isn't easy to come by I understand people being wary.
The other part you mentioned I find easy. Yeah it can take time but you're not as likely to bust anything imo.
But people are different. Just thought this bundle helps some.
Suppose it depends on the speed of the RAM. I have the mATX version of this(same price) with 3200 RAM. I paid 330 for it. If this has the RAM already installed and set to decent speeds it’s a good buy. If it’s set to 2400 I’d probably get it all separately.
3000mhz Ram
It's got Corsair 3200 memory.
It's the same price as buying separately so you can't really lose anything.

3000mhz Ram


I looked at two bundles one was 3000 ram and one was 3200.
About £10 difference.
Have I noobed up and linked the one with 3000?
Think so
ebay.co.uk/itm…932

That's the one in my basket 3200 memory. £344.99 with the code
Edited by: "Paul_93R" 25th Oct 2019
I don't understand this deal sorry.

£50 for the ram

So that's best part of 300 quid for the CPU and motherboard.

Why not just get a 2600 and B450 Tomahawk for sub 200?

Edit: Just checked, CPU can be had for 170 and mobo for 97, so that's about 80 quid for the ram.

I put up a deal just a few weeks ago for 16gb 3000mhz ram that was 50 quid.

For me, potentially bending pins when seating the CPU is the most nerve-racking part of the build. Applying thermal paste and cooler can also be a little stressful as you are trying to complete the 'maneuver' briskly enough so as to keep the surfaces dust-free. I know I am a lot more relaxed once those steps are out of the way.

Because this is a 3600.
You are paying the same as you'd pay on Amazon but it's put together.
I've seen deals get ridiculous heat for a £2 saving lol.
This is a deal imo because you are getting a put together bundle at cost.

Check my edit Paul above
Personally never thought that seating a CPU was difficult - unless you've got a hand tremor. Just need to look for the "corner" marking and orient it as the socket indicates. You know it's in the right place as it should just "drop in".
Edited by: "schmoog" 25th Oct 2019
I don't think anybody is claiming it's difficult to seat a CPU, just that knowing you've something worth £200+ in your hand that you could potentially knacker with a bent pin can cause some anxiety. Ofc for some I'm sure it's a complete nonevent.

I'm thinking I'll also hang on since black Friday is around the corner, but it looks like a good price!
It costs £346.60 to get these 3 items on amazon so that may be the better option if you have prime for the 1 day delivery

This deal works out a tad cheaper.
Also really it's aimed at people who don't feel confident putting paste on a CPU, seating a CPU and fitting a cooler without bending the motherboard
I get seasoned rig builders might scoff but this isn't really about a big saving over buying individually, although it might be but about a good deal on a pre put together tested bundle.
Bundles on Amazon etc usually cost more unless it's something like a 1200 with an A320 bundle they are trying to get rid of.

I hope you’re not a brain surgeon lols! The trick to PC building is to take your time and don’t force anything
£5.89 to put it all together AND TEST IT - removing any chance of the dreaded "whir-click" of DOA parts,seems like awesome value to me!

Yes, one could put that fiver towards an anti-static wristband, but I'd rather hedge my bets and know the system will work first go.

Adjusting the memory profile takes like 60 seconds,just load an xmp profile.

That actually makes more sense to me now, I have purchased a bundle like this before and it all come seperate in their own boxes so i just assumed this was the same haha. I can imagine less experienced people not wanting the hassle of messing with the cpu in case a pin bends or something
They are easy to build, but if you are sourcing parts from different companies then you are stuffed if it doesn't work first time (touch wood, everything I've built in the past 30 years has worked first time)
Do you still need to put that silver paste between cpu and heatskink / fan
So out of the loop with processors these days. Used to know all about that stuff. How does this CPU compare these days? Low, high or mid?

Definitely a mid tier cpu, very popular giving its price to performance. While intel can still outperform it with latest i5s, just cannot compete on price currently and this is coming from a pretty big intel fanboy lol
Seems like a ot of empty space on an ATX. An Asrock microATX would work for me (x2) at about £50 (?) cheaper but not seen that bundle.
Picked up the msi b450 max for 90 on amazon. If you top up 80 you get 6 pound promo offer. Waiting till black friday for my cpu, gpu. Also the fractal design meshify c is 80 through amazon if you want to wait for new stock.

Yeah you can probably pick up the bits slightly cheaper if you shop around but this is a deal on the pre built bundle with 3 year warranty.
I haven't seen any cheaper with this particular combination of parts.

The delicate stuff is already done so there's no worry there and it takes some time off the build. I've not gone for this but I may have if I found it cheaper with the parts I wanted including ram speed. The biggest pain in my build was the cooler. I already screwed in the mobo into my case then found out that to install the cooler I need to hold the backplate, the cooler and screw it in at the same time. If I did the cooler before the case, I could've maybe just lay it on the box and not worry about the backplate, but in the end my application wasn't so ideal.

This deal was for a pre tested and built bundle.
Not for people who want to put the parts together themselves.
Buying individually off different sites will always save you a few quid.

This list all fits together thanks to the "MAX" Board - these have been released to fit the new 3000 without a bios update - the point of my is list is it has better parts with more headroom.

This list is better because :
3600 speed ram - which is the sweet spot for Ryzen 3000 series.
The new version of the same motherboard with has be updated for Ryzen 3000 series - i.e. plug a play.

For some people the only draw backs is you build it yourself.
I think everybody should learn how to put a PC together its simple.
I know your memory is better but its not a pre build bundle and they cost more as a rule.
That was the whole point of my deal
I totally get where you are coming from but some people buy these bundles for a reason.
I build my own but if you were happy with the 3200 memory i think the deal was pretty decent as you got the parts at cost.
