Same price at Amazon / prime - although slightly delayed delivery

Agharta

But this is for people who actually want that niche and it's not that small as otherwise Intel and others wouldn't still be releasing new models all these years later. So there's clearly a larger demand for these than you think.

whelan189

Not saying there is no use scenario, just saying it's really a small niche, most people would be better of with other solutions, ie all in one's (expensive) or laptop docking which doesn't actually take much room, and has more use .

Agharta

The point of these is that they are tiny and can be mounted behind a monitor if required or placed in a cramped location neither of which is true of laptops. If you want a laptop then buy a laptop but if you want a tiny desktop then something like this is appropriate. I built a NUC system for my mother years ago and a laptop made no sense to her as she has an iPad and just wanted something small to sit under her desk; it actually sits on the sub-woofer.

whelan189

Surely overkill to use a 300-500 mini pc as a media centre?

the only tablet faster than an air 2 would be a newer ipad. There are reasons to have android tablets, e.g. I have a galaxy tab s for the better screen quality and aspect ratio but for everything other than watching videos an ipad is better

johnf007

Your simply buying a screen, the rest of the tab is faulty - read reviews on deal link websites - sorry to rain on anyone's parade :|

How does Android tablet compared to the iPads. Previously Android tablet can be quite disappointing Now I feel my iPad air 2 is weak.

I'm with you there. 6 is too old now. Actually loved 6, great recovery from the mess of 5. I'd be happy to spend a few years with a 6 device if they supplied security updates. Fat chance of that happening though.

I have 1 of these . I'd like to upgrade to Ryzen but between motherboard CPU and ram it's a £300 tag I can't afford to spend so 6300 will do for now

These often go for £25-30 on ebay, I don't see why this is hot. As others have said, avoid unless you have an existing AM3 mobo.

BigG93

Really depends on your usage. I am looking to build a home media server to replace my aging current one and with a decent passmark and cores it seems like a great price to handle a few transcoding streams and alittle more.

Nate1492

Name the CPUs you are comparing then. I mentioned the 8400 and the 1600, these are not the flagship CPUs. Go on, say the CPUs.

ShoelaceExpress

Budget customers don't buy the flagship chips. That's the last I'm going to say. Peace out!

Nate1492

You do realize how awful that chart actually is, right? And why it is so bad? The top PC on the list is the AMD Athlon x4 845. No one in their right mind would recommend that chip to anyone today. You can see Intel and AMD's current generation chips scattered next to each other. The top of the line chips here for both, the 8700k versus the 2700x... Shows exactly the same information I presented to you. Ryzen 2700x - 51.96 Intel 8700k @3.7ghz - 44.8 And that's without any level of overclocking on the 8700k. The Ryzen 2700x has no headroom for OC'ing and is running near max out of the box, so is that a reasonable comparison? And is being 10% off, even at stock, a reasonable comparison in terms of Tesla and Corsa? Is the Tesla 10% more expensive than the Corsa? No, it's 500% more expensive. The fact that you are relying on passmark to inform your opinion should be enough for anyone to see this is a lacking quality information.

CHAOSEN3

Just weighing in on this...I'd say prime95 is more of an indicator of a stable overclock as opposed to the CPU itself being 100% stable. Both Intel and AMD riguorously test their CPUs and you'd have to assume when you buy it that the chip itself is "100% stable". BSODs aren't black and white like that and you aren't supposed to get random BSODs. Could be a multitude of different factors causing the crashes. E.g. We had a batch of Lenovo PCs at work all randomly BSOD over the course of a month and after some troubleshooting narrowed the issue down to the CPU itself or the motherboard firmware. We flashed all the BIOS' to the latest versions and haven't had an issue since. Not trying to come at you here, merely wanted to add my input.

ShoelaceExpress

I haven't keenly followed computer hardware offerings for a couple of years but the landscape is very similar to how it has been for a long time. I've done a quick Google and here's a Passmark price to performance chart, based on standard US pricing. I made the Tesla to corsa comparison for a reason.

Which is why I said h100 or similar?

outwar6010_

The h100 was infamous for grindy pump noises and I doubt used units would be any good now...

bbfb123

People voting hot clearly have no concept of how these things work. You need a decent rad size, decent water flow and above all a good fan to shift the air. As this cooler has none of those properties, it's a waste of £30. You'd be better off using the free stock cpu cooler that comes with a boxed cpu over this thing. Or check ebay and grab a second hand corsair H100 or similar for the same money.

outwar6010_

All aio coolers have significantly easier mounting to compared air coolers. This is a big win if you have dcd like me.

The NZXT G12 mount really is your best bet for cooling a GPU with a bog standard AIO. They’re not that expensive and the compatible with most AIOs that use the Asetek pump.

r200ti

tell me about it. quite a few of us got conned by intel with skylake and kabylake. What makes me laugh is some people still are getting conned, even tho intel have openly admited it!

mikebuk

Wrong, GPU's are more complex now, going forward the indication is that the cpu will integrate with gpu, not the other way round as at present Mining machines use GPU's for a good reason, and the mining activity over the past few years have also driven gpu prices up

Roph

The 1080 is their midrange chip, sold as a high end part. It's their smaller midrange chip. Typically we got the "big chip" as the high end part. Due to lack of competition, Nvidia has successfully shifted their chips down a tier. So what would have been the 1060 is the 1080. The chip behind the 1050/ti would have been the 1060, the 1030 would have used the 1050/ti chip and actually been worth getting. And they get to keep their actual big chip and sell it as a Ti(tan), first milking people with the titan variant, then later selling it as a 1080 Ti. Even then, it's still not the fully unlocked big chip. They just don't need to. It's not the first time they've done it, the 600 series was shifted down a tier due to lower than expected performance from the Radeon 7000 series. Then the 700 series was a rebrand of the 600 series, but at the original tiers. So a 680 was renamed the 770 and so on. They can do this due to lack of competition from AMD. Instead of releasing their big chip as the 1080, they can simply shift tiers and sell their smaller midrange chip as an x80, and reap the extra profits. We still haven't seen their fully unlocked "big chip" in a consumer card for the 1000 series, even the 1080ti is still cut down, they simply don't need to as there's no competition. The 1080 for sure is their high end SKU, but they're selling you their midrange chip in that SKU.

Bruno.Harris

The 1080 is not a mid range chip it's the second best consumer GPU available. And no I don't have a 1080 that's just bs.

CeX sell the 1950X at £520 at the moment so eBay prices you should be looking for will be under that.

Minstadave

Think there’s still some room for further drops as the 2nd Gen come in. I’d expect 1950X near £500 I think. Problem with the 12 core version is you could get 2/3rds the performance with an 8 core Ryzen 2 and the motherboard/RAM/cooling is much cheaper

Pre order at near £/usd rates sadly (the euro version is too) for the 2990wx. I'd wait a bit if you want the 32c.

The new big daddy 2990WX drops on Monday. I predict there's going to be a few of these and the 1950x floating on ebay for steal prices this month.

Wow, that is a nice motherboard. TBH I kinda cheaped out on the motherboard and went with a el cheapo ASROCK AB350M board I picked up on eBay for around £30. Working fine so far (touch wood) and does everything I need it to. I don't really believe in spending a lot on the motherboard unless you want specific features that are only available in the higher end one like Crossfire/SLI...

slightly off topic fella but would you mind sharing your motherboard you use for the Ryzen 1800x build,i am building a pc for encoding but i am going with this motherboard:-https://www.amazon.co.uk/ROG-STRIX-B350-F-Socket-Motherboard/dp/B072C6VPZJ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1533308163&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=asus+rog+b350-f&psc=1 and for cooling this;-https://www.amazon.co.uk/Be-Quiet-Shadow-Rock-Fans/dp/B00DQCOJUQ/ref=sr_1_8?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1533308269&sr=1-8&keywords=pure+rock+slim. i will be slightly overclocking the system too,just curious as i may switch the mtb for another,thanks in advance.

ST3123

This would beat any stock cooler easily, even Ryzen ones, which are way better than Intel's puny offerings. I use two of these, one on a new Ryzen 1800X build and one on a older i7 3770 build I use in the living room as a HTPC. With this cooler it is virtually silent making it ideal for HTPC use. I don't OC either system so the fans barely have to spin up at all. Great for a system where you need it to be quiet, provided you don't mind a big case as this does need a lot of clearance, then again same could be said of most decent air coolers...

originaly it was "I’m pulling 300W from the wall with GPU at 100% load." now its 350 or 400w .. Either case i would not run 400w load on a 500w psu. thats 80% usage!

Oneday77

I’ve just loaded my system up. Running GPU at 100% and Prime95 running. At the wall, measured using a digital power display plug. It was an indicated 400W. That is with my system clocked at 3.7GHz. There was one error I made, I have my GPU power dialled down in Afterburner, though slightly over clicked. With no heavy load on the CPU but full power to the GPU it’s at 350W. Making your 450W for my system off, especially if I was to reset to stock speeds.

taras

I put your specs into this http://www.coolermaster.com/power-supply-calculator/ (and the 1700 running at stock speeds) took your hdds as 7.2k models and your 8x fans as 120mm.. The load came to 451w. Otherwise you are quite right about the psu effeiency being 50% as that will reduce fan speed as well . Meanwhile @Oneday77 I think you owe me an appology . Edited to add this .. https://www.tomshardware.co.uk/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080-pascal,review-33557-10.html the 1080gtx can peak to over 311w. That alone would make make me want a 600w pus with the correct amps on the pcie rails.

Thinking of getting one of these and undervolting for a 24/7 server. This seems to be the normal price now, they are all probably trying to flog their final stock. Not sure how long to wait for the price to keep dropping before buying!

Yeah that's 8gb but it is 3200mhz. Seemed like a decent deal as I'd struggle to buy the components cheaper myself and it comes ready to go with the latest bios. I'm not a gamer so don't really need 16gb.

Nothing to worry about PSU wise. Is that deal with 16gb of ram? If it's only 8gb then that's a poor deal. Make sure you get 3200mhz ram as Ryzen really benefits from fast ram.

I've an old 990FXA-ud3 rev 1.1 and the VRM heatsink is laughable at best, took gigabyte 5 revisions to get it right. Always ran hot but was stable, never really overclocked the chip even though it was liquid cooled due shoddy vrm cooling. The i7 8700k runs at around 40-78c when overclocked to 5.2GHz whilst my fx8350 ran around 40c its entire life, took some time getting used to the high tempts of the i7.

womby

I initially had the 9850 or whatever the top spec 220W chip was... I had to get rid of it as the temps where mental, and the thing kept shutting down :S

womby

£20 cheaper here than when I brought it 3 months back. When you invested in a £200+ mobo and £200+ in RAM, sometimes a new CPU is all you need to squeeze an extra couple of years out of the build...

Richard_Dowd

I've got this in my 5 year old build - I really need a new build!

kester76

Main thing to watch out for on the fx8350 is vrm temps. A lot of the 990fxa boards have crap vrm cooling so they tend to get really toasty (horror)
