Belting CPU for under £100
Depends what you want it for, really.
Hmm... Really should pay an extra £40 for a 1600.
Bargain of a CPU :)

Unless you own a Chinese phone of dubious or convoluted confusing specification then this app is pretty much worthless.
Was I offensive towards you? Your comment was reported.
Calm down big man
Picture is different language as my android has Polish set as default language? Is there any problem with that? :/ You can clearly see that the app is free from the picture so it serves it's purpose.
As stated by Ulke, Not much of a deal going on here with a quick search of the products indivitually
That saving is an exaggeration/marketing. The case is available elsewhere for £100 and the PSU is very overpriced for what it is (normally £100+), even then they are charging you £80 for the PSU - which is still more than it should be.
Ah fair dos! It's a damn good chip anyway, completely underrated in my opinion. Paired with 8GB of 3200mhz, it will be very capable. Thanks for posting :)
Amazon lowered the price, it was cheapest at time of posting (y)
Is this not a usual price? I've seen it as low as £80 and it tends to float around the £85 mark.At the moment it's £89 at Amazon and same price at scan (though postage to take into consideration).
Great chips these - I have the 2400G which I was running without a dedicated GPU when I first build my PC. Was getting over 30FPS on High settings in Doom which I was more than impressed with. Recently upgraded with the Sapphire RX580 which was on offer here. Great for if you're waiting for GPU pricing to change or waiting for a particular card to come out. Heat added. (y)
Probably time for 8 or 12 threads I guess? I suppose it depends on if you are planning to run a VM. I don't game these times .....
I bought this cpu a few days ago, recieved it today in good condtion, even better it came with a pack of haribos.
I tried to convince my Daughter to go for a desktop instead of a laptop, but she wasn't having any of it.
Should have built a PC (popcorn) (lol)
Bitcoin has massively massively crashed this year. In fact the whole of the crypto market has heavily crashed. So many millionaires could have been wiped out this year if they held on.
Good deal :)
Same here. Couldn’t bring myself to pay the inflated Intel prices (£160 i5 8400 was £300) so got a 2700X and new board. It’s great, my old i5 2500 was bottlenecking games, the Ryzen is demolishing everything. Good to see AMD doing well again
Whats the best cheapest gaming pc out there today ? what price bracket we looking at as iv just convinced my lad that £500 is only entry level and it would be more problematic then he could imagine ( he does not know his way around a pc im even rusty these days ) i thought it pointless to blow £500 on something he would want to upgrade stright away as all games he wants to play im guessing would be power hungry ---- oh he plays ps4 and xbox 1 another games machine was at twice the cost and more of them machines i thought silly ..... anyways can £500 get you a good gaming pc or is it just a pc that can cope with a few games at that price ?
Welcome to the big time.
The overclocking argument isnt really valid since the Threadripper is also an unlocked CPU, and will arguably overclock better. If you go on any CPU comparison site you'll see the Threadripper is technically a faster CPU. I dont think infinity fabric latency will make enough of a difference there, although that is a good point. Bottom line, no-one should buy one over a 2700 though.. for several reasons.
I can't find many direct comparisons but at stock they look almost equal, overclocked the 2700 will take the lead. The 2700 doesn't have the latency penalty of the 1900 having to go across dies.
Agreed although I can't see how these really save much if any room. The other problem is when they go wrong you lose everything. That being said they do look nice.
Thanks this looks like it might just do it appreciate your help mate
Take a look at this one at Compadvance https://compadvance.co.uk/hp-renew/en/item/582770/HP-Pavilion-570-a189nf.They have others but this includes an SSD so should be fast and last a good few years.
Could you help me find an all in one or a decent desktop pc mate need one for my nephews xmas box got around £300 to spend refurbished obviously but struggling to find a decent one he's not a gamer just want something that'll last him 2-3 years
Thats a 'usual' sort of CCL price. Imagine you have a large budget for parts and can buy 20 motherboards at a time? 20 cpu's, 20 hard drives.. now suppliers wanna talk when they got too much stock? And bancruptcy auctions are nice. (I know a supplier who has paid £6 for whole machines at auction, 10 at a time) Then you realise windows is a b/s rip off on most sites (they charge 100 despite getting it for much less) Suddenly your competitive. Dont get me wrong, you can be sure this is a low level board,probably gigabyte A320 chipset, (retail) but thats better quality than anything in a dell. And if you upgrade to an 'X' cpu (2600x for e.g) a locked board matters nothing, the chips are maxed out clocks wise anyway.(and you get a good cooler ;#} ) The power supply could be anything, might be a comes with a case job,might be cit 400 or aerocool 600 (common in pre builts) But this machine has a future? Its upgradeable. You want to see how far we've come thanks to A.M.D.'s efforts? This chip is near an i7 4770 (not 'k') and gt 1030 graphics power. Those 2 items retailed ~ £350 and you can buy this whole pc for that. I'm aware this chip goes another 7% if you can clock it (closer to that i7) but for this price who gives a hoot? You could sensibly drop a vega 56 or gtx 1070 on this chip, its that good. Now DDR4 R.A.M. should be half the price .. when its a fiver a gig I'm building an 8 core r5 3600x rig.(yes,its coming) ;#} Buying prebuilts like the lenovo AIO unit posted here is paying for and encouraging MEDIOCRITY. I will never participate in that and anybody who knows me personally would consult me before making such a mistake.
Thanks @ScootyPuffJr, saves me spending unnecessarily
Decent enough, from the reviews I've seen on YouTube the base of this is finished nicely smooth and even so gains would likely be negligible imo
One more question...I see it comes with a sachet of thermal paste, do you reckon it's decent enough or should I fork out for Arctic MX-4 instead?
Back to £21.59
Thanks Aretak, not looking to overclock initially but possibly further down the line. It's noticeably quieter then though? That's big plus of it is as trying to build an ultra silent rig.
That's alot less than what I paid for mine! I paid £200 for mine earlier this year, I would have been alot happier spending less though :p
Still on 2500K here :D
i paid about that for a skylake i7 engineering sample last year, shame you can overclock it using baseclock on an unlocked motherboard.
It was actually much cheaper then normal version, it was £78 from aliexpress last year
An engineering sample? Wow :o I just run my fan overtime to keep the temperatures nice. The extra speed at 4.7 can't be denied for some of the games and video editing I do. When did you get it, did it cost alot?
Yep, general consensus is that the Ryzen 2000 series has better IPC than the 1000 series and thus even parts with fewer cores can best higher end Ryzen 1000 series CPU in certain tasks such as gaming. I got the 2600 for around £120 while the eBay promo was on and am very happy as I couldn't have even got a 1700 for that price, best I could have got is a 1600, which is clearly bested by the 2600 as my main use will be gaming it should be well suited to my needs...
Nearly bought a 1700 from scan (same price once delivery was factored), but then changed my mind and bought a 2600. Read that fewer faster cores better for gaming, and for video processing more cores are better but only up to a point because then core speed slows so you get diminishing returns. It all sounded plausible. So I went with the 2600 off eBay for under 125 the other week when they had their 15pc off offer.
This or a Ryzen 5 2600 as they are now at the same price point.
Good offer, but a little off Scan's recent sub-145 deal: AMD Ryzen™ 7 1700 8 Core AM4 CPU/Processor with Wraith Spire 95W cooler, £144.98 at Scan P.S. & Amazon's 1700X deal: Ryzen 7 1700x - £141.59 on Amazon UK
This guy read it right... (y)
That's how I'm reading that comment too...
Eh? Are you suggesting there is a deal with an x470 for £50 more?
I'd rather have a 8 core
I don’t think it that bad for an aio, but it is mostly for ascetics, most AIOs are exactly same just with different tubing, and some features which I am sure a lot of people won’t care for. I understand where you are coming from 100%, I have touch a AIO since the h100i I got i my original pc which was pre-owned. I mostly stay away because they cannot be cleaned or serviced easily, and your loop ideally should be flushed and cleaned every 3-6.
No actually, HUKD did automatically on the other deal, I have no idea why I didn’t do it on this one.
Well, you made the effort to check the delivery charge for your other Scan deal though?
Or maybe, I didn't check the delivery. :| I didn't mean to offend you with my comment, but if you want to act like a child and witch hunt that is fine too.
Think I payed £35 for the cooler master lite aio water cooler. Works OK and just added 2 extra fans I had knocking about. Haven't used a bulky cooler in years being the price difference can be £5-10 more Found this one, I just waited till the sales https://www.scan.co.uk/products/cooler-master-seidon-240v-v3-aio-water-cooling-kit-quiet-compact-240mm-pwm-fan-radiator-for-intel-an
I'd go for a noctua. Might cost more but I got mine in 2015 and just got a free AM4 mounting kit for my rzen build
Best around this price range is the Cryorig H7. That performs about the same as 120/140mm AIO coolers, yet can be had for under £30. ** Damn just checked cheapest price now is £35 guess demand has sent its price up and at that price its much more sensible to get its bigger brother. Best bargain though is its new bigger brother the Cryorig H7 Plus - only one site has reviewed that yet and they tested it performing better than almost all AIO coolers. It performs akin/might be better than a Noctua D15, yet costs half the price. Its BIG though, just like the D15.
I kinda want to buy this but not sure it will make any or enough noticeable difference over the wraith spire that came with my 2600X? I find cpu temps don't get much above 60c gaming and around 30-35c idle and it runs at around 4ghz most of the time.
These things are loud. One came with my 2700x and I had to get it out as soon as possible because I couldn't stand the noise anymore, even on minimum load.
Thanks, shame the RAM isnt upgradable
Notebookcheck.net (German language) states in its specification run down of one of the iterations of the Medion S3409 that the RAM is soldered to the motherboard and the SSD is a m.2 drive. The Crucial upgrade wizard also states that RAM is non-removable.
Price seems to have gone up to £369.96 now
Can anyone who bought this advise if the memory is accessible to upgrade?
The tower is fine but the fans are ridiculously loud and didn't do much of a good job cooling my Ryzen 2700 (@4ghz), I replaced the fans with just a single Corsair AF120 and not only was it far quieter, it cooled better aswell... Either I have faulty Coolermaster fans or they are that terrible.
ooo I like the r6 185mm clearance for cpu coolers, nice. but don't forget RAM, when you get to the behemoth sized coolers you sometimes find they have low motherboard clearance and it can cause issues with motherboards where ram is too close or with ram that's too tall. but honestly if you get the 212 you probably will be in the same boat as me, the cooling on a 212 is so good it makes it hard to justify anything bigger and if you load 140mm fans front, bottom, and rear in the case the cooling will be epic (top if you want but keep the pressure positive in the case and low rev the top and rear, or you will get dust).
I see, Thanks for the info. hmm...yeah....the Noctua will definitely cut into my budget I'm afraid. :( Guess I could consider it when upgrading. I have the Fractal Design Define R6. Its got sound dampening. So I hope that might be enough to reduce noise from the fans. Also, I'm sure it will fit if I ever plan on buying a Noctua. The case is huge!
Also have my 212 EVO since 2014. Perfect quality and specs
I'd go for the 212, but then I did. Had my hyper 212 evo (not this led version) for about 5 years now I think. although I did swap out the fans for Noctua so it was quieter. Running an i7 6700k at 4.2Ghz on 2k SC2 and other cpu heavy stuff and maxing out at 62c while still running very quiet (bout 40-50% fan speed for Noctua). if I was buying now I'd probably just buy a full Noctua cooler but that would set you back at least £40 and I really like the one at £66 on ebuyer (I try not to shop there anymore) https://www.ebuyer.com/store/Components/cat/PC-Cooling-and-Modding/subcat/CPU-Coolers/Noctua BEAST but you need space for it :)
The OP's link on AWD IT website shows additions for upto 3200MHz DDR4. That motherboard does support that speed right?
Just for clarification i am building one with a B450 AORUS PRO motherboard which i have linked in the description(269£), but since it is a bit more expensive i decided to not present it as the best deal. :)
Well it is the OP who's building it, I just found the same bundle on ebay. A quick search suggests it can support up to 3200mhz in OC mode. (The specifications section in OPs link at awd-it lists it also).
Just so you know it says 2400mhz is the max ram speed on that motherboard, not great for ryzen. Amazing price though
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMD-Ryzen-5-2600X-Six-Core-4-25GHz-Asus-B450M-A-Motherboard-CPU-Bundle-NO-MEMORY/323511512225?epid=23025007237&hash=item4b52c9eca1:g:euYAAOSwW4dbzaFd:rk:2:pf:0 £226.91 with the voucher.
What is this brand’s warranty and customer service like?
Good advice, This one's all completed and tested,
Be careful - A320 chipsets need to have a new BIOS flashed to support Zen+ (i.e 2600X) CPUs.
B350 if u wanna overclock. Which will cost more, this is a cheap good alternative if u don't want to plan, or was considering the 1600 n getting ram n b350 sep deal, which u won't need to.oc For the price it's a steal spec when u look at all the other links, just need windows key for afew quid of eBay, rest of your budget depentant on either ssd or 1tb deals about.
Yeah, you would be better with a B350/B450.
Not sure that's a good MB for that processor. A bit like buying a DB9 and getting it limited to 50 mph.
Nice! I brought this 2 months ago for 300! Heat
Wooooah.....okay first I almost bought this (honest injun) just one thing stopped me amd thatbwas this. ..https://amp.tomshardware.co.uk/amd-ryzen-max-box,news-59487.html tjnak you the all kjowing Toms we loves u....anyway..but thanks OP it does say inc cooler which o hope.is the wire prisim but even if not it is an almost bang for buck moment as its 44.50 doscpunt whe u have a maximum of 50 that aint half bad....
Nice price. I'm waiting to see what Zen 2 offers up, hopefully around April time. That should be the real showstopper for Intel.
I've never had a failed cpu either... but there's always the chance I guess...
thought so, thought AMD now come with a good beefy fan compared to what Intel supply with theirs.
Intel, "Hey AMD wanna cross license each others intellectual property so we can milk the market as a whole?" AMD, "Sure!" Nvidia, (All in jest)
Intel, "Hey AMD how's your single threaded performance? Amd, "Well it's not quite as good as the i7 2600k but we're nearly there!
99% have been sold. Hurry people!!!
When i did it i used a different payment method just in case they compared against any already used, but i have no idea what ebay actually compare against so i abreviated my name as well, but my shipping address was still the same so not sure. i used paypal on my account and card payment on the guest checkout, i also had my full name on my account but used michaeljb on the guest. Just try a few different permutations, hope this helps, good luck (y)
Overclock your 2200G first and see how it performs. If you get it to 4Ghz odds on 4 cores will be plenty.
