Basically: The 8xxx series offers better CPUs at cheaper price points, that if you compare the gains at each CPU level (i3, i5, i7) the better value is at the Coffee Lake CPU side.

==============================
Cancelled
Very disappointed to get the cancelation email. I poured over a lot of reviews and the motherboard did very well in audiophile tests, the first board I have seen that scored 'excellent' in each audio benchmark category within its price range, and it had a good quality headphone amp for audiophile/up to 600ohm headphones, that was the main appeal of the motherboard, for me, it seemed a fairly basic spec, otherwise. Would it be so much to ask companies to compensate customers with vouchers to make up for the time wasted by the company's human errors, just a small gesture to keep customers sweet?

Anyway, kudos to the OP for sharing, it was worth a try.

Shame.

For those not needing specifically SLI or needing additional bells and whistles you should look for a B350 board (Asus Prime/MSI Tomahawk/Gigabyte Gaming 3), performance will be all but identical. Such boards can be had for this money.

While unlikely, to be fair I did that with my sandybridge. Had a 2500k (was only £2 more expensive than non k at the time) and a dirt cheap H61 chipset board - upgraded to a similar board on Z77 for overclocking later down the line. Though like I said, few and far between scenario.

I really don't think it matters in respect to long term. There isn't a great deal to separate them, so personally I would just go with the one that you find most pleasing aesthetically. I would probably lean towards Asus due to them having a better BIOS, but Gigabyte are fine in that regard. There is an argument for stepping up to Z270 (Kaby Lake) if your budget can stretch to it, and if you think you will utilise the extra motherboard features. Otherwise, either of these boards will last you a long time.

Ryzen is releasing an 8-core CPU first, which rumour has will be around the £700-800 mark. Now that is actually a good price IF it seriously competes with Intel's £1000 6900k, but we don't really know for sure how much of a run for its money it's going to give it. Regardless, it won't be aimed at the average consumer, it's for enthusiasts and those that actually NEED an 8-core CPU. Most people don't, but plenty will WANT it all the same. Ryzen is also not going to impact the price of lower Intel chips (not initially anyway), because they are aimed at a different market. It MAY impact the 6900k price, but only if it hits it hard on performance.On the lower tier affordable side of things however, Ryzen is not going to be going down that road for a good 6 months or so yet. Kaby Lake is going to be full fat price on release, and offer negligible performance over Skylake, which makes it a daft purchase unless you simply MUST be on the bleeding edge of tech. The deals on Skylake now and for the foreseeable future make it the ideal path for anyone on a budget and with more sense than money. Everyone else can waste theirs on the latest tech, but they won't be getting good value for performance. Of course, if you can wait 6 months, see what low tier Ryzen brings to the table, otherwise just go with Skylake, you'll be set.

I have one of these and also the N3150 version - they are great for Kodi … I have one of these and also the N3150 version - they are great for Kodi use BUT they have crippled USB 3.0 ports!Four of the ports are conrtolled by an ASMedia ASM1074 usb hub and it is broken - if a UASP usb device is connected it keeps resetting every ~30 seconds or so. The remaining two ports are also broken and Intel had to issue a special usb driver to cope with a design issue.If you want to deal with constant USB 3.0 disconnects then OK you have been warned. The new J3710 and J3160 boards still use the same crippled ASMedia ASM1074 chip - don't know if Intel have solved the other USB3.0 issue on these new revisions.All very disappointing for an otherwise good silent HTPC solution.



I will probably go with the gigabit one then

Interesting.

It definitely won't play that through kodi in Windows because Intel is yet to create a driver for it bit perhaps Openelec builds have overcome the issue.

Are you able to play other advanced formats (Atmos etc) through openelec?

Reviews well - it's obviously not a gaming machine, but it will do a job. Lowest price from the Rainforest according to the Camels too -

Not powerful enough for Kodi, can't handle madvr.




Sorry tempt but not everyone wants to run mad vr with kodi, that's a very high end setup. This will be ideal for kodi without it.

I'm guessing you're doing something a bit cleverer than the average user?

Rubbish, I use the N3150 Beebox for Kodi, plays 1080p blurays outputting HD audio just fine.

I think this price for the N3000 is pretty standard though
