Ah that's not ideal. Mine came shipped with some expanding foam. Also the 3070 that was in my build was a dual fan card, so probably not as heavy as a 3080.
I mean whoever packed it used nothing but air pockets inside the case and then placed the whole thing with the GPU facing down in the big box. There was literally no support for a 3080 Vision so the couple of kgs it weighs wrenched it out the PCIE slot and cracked the motherboard and GPU PCBs. I sent the whole thing back to them and told them the replacement GPU can be shipped safely in its own box. They should really offer that upfront for people who are comfortable with it
I had been toying between them both today but the 3060 had sold out earlier, so I went with the 3070 before the 3060 rig came back out. Thanks though @sarden84 , its less than the Curry's deal I was looking at yesterday.

LGood drives. Decent deal. But isn't the Crucial P5 of similar size on sale at a close price? I would recommend the P5 instead at this point. Edit: Yeah even though it costs a little more I'd still much rather get this: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/crucial-p5-500gb-3d-nand-nvme-pcie-m2-ssd-ps4660-delivered-at-ccl-online-3719514
Just a point to be wary of - NMVE SSD drives are currently being heavily used by certain people to mine crypto coins and the process quickly wears them out. Some people are reportedly returning these heavily used NVME drives at the end of the 30 day warranty period. I would be very wary of buying a refurbished NVME SSD drive at the moment.
Have you looked into the new Xbox Wireless headset? Apparently really good. argos.co.uk/product/9395084
Anyone know the best wireless headphones for Xbox?
End of the day it's a gaming headset people. You're not going to get standalone audiophile sound quality from dedicated headphones or high quality recordings from dedicated quality microphone. Just a compromised product with both put together upmarketed as a "gamer" product.
I use a 2m micro USB cable when gaming or listen music and they work fantastic.
tbh ive not noticed it, i usually have the earphones volume on around 75% and i adjust the sound with which game i play in their ingames have them around 20-30%. For music, video to max and just let my ears bleed with bass.
I have bought open box a few times from CCL, they have always been customer returns, with signs of use, all of the items have worked fine though... But not a brand new item in a box that has been opened.
I was about to buy it but also had the same thought - Corsair states that if they refurb an item the warranty is good, but that otherwise the 10 year warranty is only with the initial buyer. I have however seen they have the RM850x in stock so tempted to cancel my order for the RM850 on Amazon since its still a few weeks from being in stock.
Cold from me, this is not a good buy. The most important thing about PSU is its warranty. I believe a new one has a 10 year warranty, this one only have 12 month. I would not call this open box, more like seller refurb. Buy at your own risk.
I have one of these in my system right now. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Nice and quiet.
Good price for a good PSU. Will ensure that APU doesn't long for watts.
I had this mouse for about a year but it never felt right to use for me, eventually bought a G403 to test out, G403 fits my hand so much bettter, Ive not used the corsair since. If you're looking for a replacement of a similar kind don't buy this. Its a very good mouse but didn't fit my hand style at all.
My favourite mouse for about the last year. I had several different mice before settling on this one, tempted to get a spare.
Are these more of a palm or claw style mouse. After something to replace my G403.
I paid a lot more for this mouse 2 months ago and was happy with the spend, so this is a great deal. Fantastic mouse.
Good mouse, the M55 pro in black is also on sale for £25 (same sensor but more standard mouse design).
unless your using it as a secondary power supply but thats very.. uncommon (lol) (lol)
Given the cables which aren't modular in the TX-series are the 20+4 ATX & 8-pin EPS, it doesn't matter as much as people make it out to be, since your computer won't work without those two plugged in.
Japanese caps aren’t the only factor but probably full modular, 10 year warranty and fairly close otherwise - also the RM definitely runs quieter, it also has other variants like the RMx and RMi in the same sub-brand. But the Adata XPG probably beats both of these for less money anyway for build quality and value. In reality, any of these three are probably more than enough for most systems.
I've never understood why this is regarded lower quality than the RM series, has less warranty, yet this has Japanese Capacitors unlike the standard RM series.
Unless you’re paying slightly more for the top tier units like the RM, HX and AX series you’re just buying on the brand name. The Adata XPG Core Reactor is one of the best power supplies you can buy in this class, let alone the fact it’s also very cheap for what it is, fully modular and has 10 year warranty.
Cheers op, My trusty hx750 has just died on me! No complaints though did get a good 10 years out of it! May have to pick one of these up!
Great first post. Thanks for posting and a belated welcome to hotukdeals (y)
Depends, the new Mag Lev ones would be better if you're running your system 24x7 with a constant load requiring the fan. Doesn't matter if there's no load as the fan on these can turn off when below 40% fan load.
thanks buddy, worked for me!!
Apparently the only thing they've changed i(other than making it a bit prettier) is the fan. They threw the Corsair Mag-Lev one in which is much louder than the previous one so I'd do my best to get the old version. It's one of the best rated PSUs out there.
I've got 64GB of this stuff in my editing rig, it's very nice RAM. Managed to get the full 3600Mhz with 4 Dimms no problem.
Excellent Deal!, got a pair of these in my system. what can i say its ram, it does what its suppose to, not had any issues to date, performance is excellent, and lightening looks amazing, the icue software is nice to use for ur RGB. as per the chaps statement about each LED, nope not here mate.
White will not be the in colour for long, it never is. Not a fan of RGB lighting but white lighting can be effective. Gaming PCs should be like kids , seen and not heard :)
Its weeks since I looked at RAM prices and I would have gone for these without a doubt but as you say they would not have fitted my last build. Edit nor the colour :)
Has anyone got this one? It has 10 leds, but based on YouTube videos the dimming plastic is poor and therefore each led is distinguishable and stands out, which is quite annoying. I've currently got HyperX Fury with CAS17 latency and led nicely blend in. Not sure if it is worth getting a lower spec latency and less visually-pleasing leds just for the colour change to match my white build. Any advice?
I'm getting "No item in your basket qualifies for that offer."
Perfectly fine for knocking an old PC together with spare parts lying around. these cheap PSUs have their uses!!
There's a fully modular 80 Plus Bronze 550W EVGA unit available for £39.95 on Amazon right now. Comes with a five year warranty too instead of the three years of this one. Well worth the extra fiver. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/evga-550w-fully-modular-bronze-certified-psu-3714621
My advice, stay clear of the lower end corsair stuff. One set on fire, one died randomly and one kept glitching out on me. All around 500w. My EVGA replacement however, has been flawless.
just to update everyone on my order, i ordered this on tuesday when website stated in stock but text in listing stated it can take 20-30 days due to order volume. Today received an email saying my PC wont be built till 18/06! and dispatched on 21/06. thats almost 60 days wait on a PC they apparently have in stock?? I've also spoke to them on the phone and webchat the day before and no one said anything about no stock? I've sent them a complaint email asking them where this aditional 30 days has come from?
You're still not getting my point. It's not about 'every deal' from Scan it's about this one deal which can be tailored to literally anything you like so you don't have to look at every deal or any deal from them or anyone else. Even if items aren't in stock you can still pre-order using that PC as a base and beat any deal from any other company. Like I said you have to wait but the deal is there if you want it. I am not talking about general deals here I don't care who beats who in general I'm talking specifically about the Scan RTX Gamer which is counted as a value system which you can then play with till you get the parts you want and the resulting deal will beat anything from anywhere else that I've seen. It's not just 3080. Go for 3070 as per the link and take Windows off and you're paying £1259 for a 5600x with a 3070 you are never, ever going to get that deal from AWD, Palicomp, ebuyer or anyone else. I went for a tecware nexus evo case with 3 fans, well reviewed and that dropped the price even further so you can get to £1200 and still have 1tb NVME, 16gb 3200 etc, I even upped the PSU to 750w gold on my build for hardly any cost. I don't understand why you can't see what I'm seeing here. You are obsessed with running companies off against each other, I am just trying to tell people there's an amazing deal out there for anyone looking for a similar build to the one I just ordered if they are prepared to wait.
these are your words: And they deserve the allocation as they are charging fair prices not madly inflated scalper prices like Overclockers et al. This deal is not dead at all if people are prepared to wait. I suppose you think these cards should be going to AWD and Palicomp so they can charge three times the price for them and blame it on Covid? -- I know you're trying to be neutral here but after countless searches on AWD and Pali trying to find something that wasn't a total ripoff I can guarantee you won't get anywhere remotely near as good value as you'll get from Scan but don't take my word for it. -- Hence why my reply: on RTX3080 u maybe correct; and explained whats happening with RTX3080 cards atm as some places are having to buy direct from scan hence why they go up after the offers; but as for ukhotdeals terms they then become expired., -> hence why i said well done to ur custom deal; but as ive stated; this is not the case on EVERY DEAL with scan, but u made it out to be on every deal within ur words; that is incorrect. to answer ur final QS: if pali or awd had better stock allocation per say rtx3080; they will beat scan as per usual what they do when they all have the same cards as proven. so yes ive proven this countless times on other deals. ur advice is great; as per what ive done on this SCAN deal, u are kinda counter reacting ur self: yes u know they have bad deal too, but u only above pin point the 2 others where they bad at? so under your original statement u make out the 2 are complete crap and that scan only had decent deals, they are ur words. so i agreed u got a good deal better then the market but ur incorrect fully on the full statement; its being inforative to buyers that where one aspect is good the other maybe not so, hence why its always best to do multiable firms. PS: there not my mates, as proven countless times, when i need to bash them too, i will do, its being informative on the good/bad. so accept that u got a good one, and thanks for sharing, but here is some other tips about the others why they struggle in some areas but when they dont they beat scan who take the micky the most though their site.
You're not even listening to me at this point. You just keep blathering on about how they all have bad deals and that is true but I have specifically said repeatedly to use the Scan RTX Gamer as a base point then change it as you see fit and that's how you get the best 5600x partnered with a 3000 series card deal on the net, far better than anything you have posted to date and despite repeated requests to show me the better deal or even one that matches it I'm seeing nothing. I'm sure you can do the same thing with an Intel deal I haven't looked into it but if that's what people want they can try themselves, nothing to lose and everything to gain. The fact remains a similar build from your mates at AWD and Palicomp will cost £300 to £600 more minimum depending on whether you're looking at a 3070 or 3080 and for some reason you just don't like it at all that there's a better alternative. I'm starting to think you either have history with Scan in which case I'm puzzled why you even put this deal up or for whatever reason you don't want to fall out with AWD or Palicomp. You're looking pretty much the opposite of 'neutral' at this point. I have no allegiance to any of these people, I go where the best deal takes me no matter what and that I believe is the very essence of what this site is all about.
