Again you'd use it for hedt cpu application purposes,

FierceVinegar

way better single core though

Jordan_Taylor

And 8 threads less, you'd use this for hedt cpu purposes. Plus a decent upgrade for people who use a 1900x, seen a fair people use a 1900x for plex servers.

FierceVinegar

way better to just get a 3700x for a bit more

I didn’t declare they were readily available, I pointed out that in the past about 6 months there have been 20+ deals with the combination stated that were a lot cheaper. Use the search and use an alert and look around would be my advice, if you’re not willing to pay the huge extra amount for the small number of additional features. Hope that helps! :)

It would seem reasonable asking you as you are so confident in declaring the ready availability of such products?

Is there any way to get extended warranty of 2-3 years on this? I'm a bit skeptical of their 1 year only warranty.

Ronski007

Here you go, X570 motherboard, 3800X CPU, 2070 Super, 3600Mhz memory, 1TB Gen 4 SSD, Win 10 Pro, many parts will likely have more than 3 years warranty all for £1506 and building it yourself. Overall a much better and faster spec. Find Windows cheaper and a cheaper case, and you could shave £75 - £100 off. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Ron-ski/saved/dDqZZL Personally after having bought an overclocked CPU and motherboard bundle many years ago from Scan and finding the voltage way over the top I'd never buy a built PC from them, used them many time for parts though.

The B550 boards are out in 3 weeks which have limited PCIe 4.0, the prices are rumoured to start at £100 but we'll see... Coupled with the 3300X then it should be a winner

fudgecake2

I think this is the best price to performance system for your use case. An argument could be made for investing more in a MB with PCIE 4 support though this costs too much currently and I think it will be a long time before this actually makes much of a difference. AMD have said they will continue to add B450 support to their next gen CPUs though I don't see why people care about this especially from our "r/patientgamer" standpoint where we aren't upgrading every year or so.

thelocalned

Yes. Not sure for how long though. The B450 chipset should run the new ryzen 5 out of the box , but there are a few chipsets out just now that are compatible with this , which one stays the course ? dont know , but the B450 has been around for a couple of years now...the X370 and 470 chipsets are newer I think , but are aimed more at the overclocking market ? ( unsure).

fudgecake2

Haha oh so am I, I only just upgraded my i5-2500k last year to a Ryzen 3600. I’d highly recommend the 3300x for you then! Such rave reviews and perfect for gaming. Great value and a no brainer imo. Some people have discussed mixed feelings with ‘AWDIT’ so it’s up to you whether you want to go with them or someone else. This is the ram I’d recommend you pick it up with: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/crucial-ballistix-3200mhz-cl16-ddr4-16gb-black-at-amazon-6802-free-prime-delivery-3472201 Though if you prefer you can get Corsair vengeance 16gb 3000mhz for £4 less. I do recommend high speed dual channel ram for ryzen. Then later on if you like I’d recommend an m.2 pcie nvme sdd; actually even a sata ssd would be huge for you. Next clear upgrade would be the GPU though it all depends on what you are using it for. Hope this helps.

iwo

I'm such a cheapskate and "r/patientgamer" type of player that bang for buck is always my chief consideration. If I got another 3-5 years out of my old tower I'd see £250 for a prebuilt mobo/cpu combo plus a pair of 8GB DD4s as being money well spent. Just gaming and web/media browsing. No video editing or anything like that. I'm really not the fussiest; but 60fps @1080p is really my main requirement. I'm thinking I might just take my chances and pull the trigger on this deal. I can't find anything better or as good value. Big thanks for the helpful replies guys. EDIT: Just thought on: would the combo in this deal at least provide some sort of modest upgrade path later on, should I go for it? I don't want to box myself in, even if it is cheap now.

Beautiful cooler with good performance for the god of CPU’s AMD
bigDic

I changed setting in the fan speeds software (ryzen software can't remember the name) didn't do anything. I am guessing this is not what you mean though. Where would I find the settings for this. I have changed over to a water cooler but I am sure my boy would appreciate it if I can sort it out :D

iserlohn

Did you set the CPU step-up and step-down delay? If you didn't then the fan bounces up and down. If you did then it should spin up smoothly and pretty much quiet until you stress the CPU with Cinebench or streaming while gaming, etc. It's one of the best air coolers out there and great value when bundled with the latest Ryzen CPUs. Easily beats many £40+ coolers on the market.

Its very nice to look at, and it actually performs quite well. I didn't get one with my Ryzen 3600, so I purchased one from Scan for £19.99 with free delivery due to being an av forums member. My plan was to use it for a little while, and then purchase a EK-AIO 360 D-RGB, but I'm not sure now as I'm very happy with this cooler so far.

3800X is a speed boost, 3900X gives you a few more cores. If your a streamer, i would def go for 3900X

This_is_a_Vacation

Tell that to my old 1300X (my buddy still runs it with a ATI (excited) 590 gr8 underestimated GPU BTW).) Just over 4GHz all cores (it never got the chance to use the 'Boost' setting) Gaming it kicks a 1600 in most games @1080P

ceaton88

Well I did it - 3900x coming tomorrow. Anything I should know before hand? I’m on the latest bios already. My g skill flare b-die ram always hit a ceiling at 3200mhz with my 1600x on the fast preset using the dram calculator but now that I’m stepping up I’m hoping to get 3466mhz (the max x370 prime pro can support). If anyone has any experience with this I’d love to hear.

Toku

Can't remember if the x370 is the board that will support the 3000 series graphics cards. If so, probably worth a keep for now. The Amazon prices for the 3900x have been randomly going up and down recently. Highest I've seen is £430. Lowest (that looked legit) £370. But I think it'll even drop lower then £370 when the new processors come out in July so I might wait until then. Keep an eye out for the price drops as they are random! Also be careful of weird sellers as one today was selling the 3900x for £290 which doesn't sound legit at all lmao. Good luck lmao. A friend of mine was saying if it drops below £370 then that's probably the best you'll get. But £370 isn't too bad either :D

Was very tempted to get this, but the screen is too much of a hit and miss for me. The screen doesn't get lit up nearly half as much as I would like, fans get loud, so be prepared if using it in the bed. These few niggles along with only a 4800H, and a QWERTZ kayboard, mean I must turn this one down too. Still waiting for my perfect laptop.

There are two versions of the screen on these the bad one is the Panda which has bad colour reproduction and blurring. Some have had an AU optics panel fitted which is much better but hard to get hold off. Unfortunately it’s a panel lottery if you get the better screen.

Schwifty

The handy thing about ryzen chips is they come with the thermal paste already on the cooler and you're ready to go. This comment is not really directed at you just the casual reader who is on the fence about building one. Another thing you can do by the way is buy small reusable heat transfer mats which do as good a job as thermal paste pretty much and the advantage is that you can attach your cooler and take it apart as many times as you like without spreading paste around and worrying about that crap. All the best.

Schwifty

This conversation suddenly got a whole lot more balanced. All it took was a couple of people coming along with their own opinions to add to it. If you want a job done right etc etc The only reason to pay someone to do it is for convenience. Bare in mind they are not some expert they are just a normal person like anyone else and prone to human error.

MikeLondon

I got a pre built system (not this company) about 5 years ago because it was working out a little cheaper. A couple of issues - they put the nasty blower style gpu in. The noise was so irritating that I had to swap to an aftermarket cooler. So check exactly what they are going to give you. Secondly and more importantly the CPU kept over heating and I didn't know why. After loads of troubleshooting I realised they hadn't seated the cpu cooler properly, it was tilted so that only a small part of the cooler was in direct contact. After all the fuss it would have been better for me just to do it myself. FYI the worst part of the build for me is adding the coolers! You not only need to use thermal paste but it's the part that requires the most forces.

You over estimate many people's abilities and intelligence. Voila, Brexit.

sarden84

most folks fear the cpu into the MB, which is one of the easiest things to do, but at the same time, IF something does go wrong, it can also be one of the most expensive and thats from user feedback, so a good option of them with this fear is the combo packages, which sometimes can be a little advantage occasional to get one and at cost, most times it isnt, nothing decent in this area atm, but will need to recheck, use to be some positive ones, but then it went sour half way though lockdown. if i had to list the most hardest part in order of easy to hardest in regards to doing it for myself and ive built tons of systems, some folks would say cable management but thats a challenge i enjoy (yeah im weird..).. for me its prob the mb to case, ive gone though that many cases, and the same bleeding cases over n over ! cant they get the screw holes lined up bloody right at times!. thats prob the most bit i hate, that thought, is this specific case going to go sweet as the last one or going to be a biatch cos some baboon has knocked the machine what predrills it lol.. that person prob worked for MFI what keeps haunting me occasional lol..

I remember that deal, I was actually interested in that but decided to pay £400 for an i5 Zenbook, I like it more. I'm not sure if that deal was cheap because of a student discount. Or it was a strange colour if it was the John Lewis deal. I do remember a good deal on Lenovo on the specs you suggested, but without the OS. However, I can't say this is bad just because I found once or twice a better deal a while ago. Pretty much every price here was cheaper a while ago. What's important is what is available now and for how much. This is not my favourite laptop deal by far, but it is still somewhere on top, I don't vote hot only for number 1.

Dalha_S

There was the possibility of an i5-1035g1 with an Nvidia MX330 dGPU for £420 with the lenovo ideapad 5 a bit back so I would disagree with heat on this.

kwl147

Just the way it is. Any laptop that did meet the spec doesn't exist anymore I bet. Lower demand for it for something lighter, thinner etc. So now they're all chasing impracticality and profitability.

The Asrock one at about £55 is nice, only limitations are the RGB header, if u want that then go for something like DS3H. all B450 will be perfectly fine to upgrade, these are good budgets, however the MSI PRO VDH a little more with the increase in BIOs size, perhaps maybe that little bit more inclined for zen3.... that was last weeks debate, B450 not getting zen3, but it didnt add up as msi max b450 have 32mb bios, over the other b450 16mb but the announced 16mb bios on some x570 were also inc.. but amd back track, but its still worth that consideration... "peace of mind".. so the vdh would not be a wrong choice. these £55-70....

2xxx ryzen and X470 should already be compatible. At least until they do the "AF" thing with gen 2 as well.

Mechtup

Thinking about getting this but unsure about compatibility. At the moment I have a 2600 with a X470-F motherboard. PCPartPicker has picked up an issue saying BIOS will need to be updated, but from what I understand the BIOS version needed will also need to be compatible with the 2600 in order to be updated in the first place. I’m not really sure where I can find out if it is compatible or not

hereafter

This for mainly gaming and little video editing paired with a 2080ti or the 3600 with 2080ti?

Mechtup

To be honest I’m not sure. It does take a while sometimes the more I have (using Visual Studio- colleges idea not mine). I have a 2060 Super so GPU is fine. Sometimes these access large amounts of data from an external source

b1l4b0ng

I went for the 3600, but I wish I could have justified getting one of these instead. For me 6 cores on the 3600 is great too, it allows me to run several VMs / Docker containers at the same time without noticing any slow-down.

"It's the fastest integrated GPU there is cough Cough (not virus related) Intel skull Trail VEga-m gfx , also AFAIK the mobile APUS, eg 4800HS might beat this. I like these chips tho as everything is in one package .. Waiting to see what the 4000 is like, see if the mid-range APU can outgun an GTX960. ALso would like to see the low wattage versions GE.

I’m inclined to agree that this CPU has been made a bit redundant at this price, kneecapped by the 1600 AF on the cheaper side and 3300X on the pricier side. Yes you will need a discrete GPU but as mentioned refurb RX 570s have been around the £70-80. If you absolutely must go for an APU, the 3200G is the more compelling option with a view to a GPU upgrade in the future. But as also mentioned, you’re probably better waiting to see what the new gen APUs look like. Even then, AMD are always likely to artificially limit what their APUs can offer on the graphics side; given Nvidia dominate the high end GPU market and AMD mainly competes in the low to mid range, all the AMD APUs would be doing is stealing sales from their own GPU division. In short: this is a good price, but only go down the APU route if you really have to.

It's ironic really, my dual system case is pretty huge but the ITX area is still a bit cramped. I could go non APU but then it means paying for a riser cable, a basic gfx card, and aftermarket low profile/AIO cooling as the standard Wraith cooler wouldn't fit. A good Ryzen 4000 APU would makes things much easier... ;)

Yes, that's understandable. It's a good chip in it's own right but you are essentially paying extra for those graphics - makes sense if you're trying to do an ITX build or cheap gaming system with minimal parts and clutter. Looks like you'll have the options for huge gains with 4000-series - extra cores, more efficient, etc. I've had Intel until recently but AMD has literally taken the chip world by storm - back in 2016 when they announced Zen I don't think anyone believed them after years of horrible Bulldozer rubbish, this is basically their equivalent to Intel's Core 2.

Used to be around £110 - cold From me as you can have 3600 for £139...

Personally I think that quad cores are going to work well on low-mid end gaming for a little while yet. The new consoles being 8 Zen2 cores is definitely a good thing for PC gamers as games will utilise more cores for sure. But that shouldn't mean that someone on a budget shouldn't still buy a quad core. They're still going to play games and do it pretty well. I have a 12-core 3900x in my PC, but have ordered a 3300x for an ITX PC I'm building to use on the TV for VR also. I think the 3300x is going to deliver more than enough performance for casual gaming.

My next cpu is going to be one of the current 8 cores. Not bothered about the upcoming ones as it will be too long before they come down to my sort of prices :D . I might be wrong and totally not understanding these new cpu's but as a gamer buying a quadcore now seems a bit strange to me.

We've had 8 core CPU's on PC's for a while now. I think consoles (PS5) will give yet another kick to multithread development.

Paul_93R

I'm not talking about consoles though. Console ports usually run like crap anyway. I'm saying 6 cores is better than 4 in pc games and very soon pc games will run better on 8 cores than 6. So I'm not sure how they are going to fare on 4. Bit of a short term buy these cpu's imo.

rev6

We could have made this very same argument when the PS4 was released.
