The deal had ended - it was the lower price for a few days only


I'm seeing that too ... I believe the Deal may have actually expired perhaps?.


Showing £157.89 - am I missing something to get the lower price?


In a nutshell - 'COST Factor', basically?. A 10-10.1" Tablet can be had from £50 odd (ok, it'll be CRAP!), to around about the £150 mark (and yes, that one would be sizably BETTER!). BUT, go for 11"+ then ... £300+ we're looking at here? (EASY?!). And with them crazy 'figures' in mind, etc, then, ONLY one word would now rather more readily come to my mind instead - LAPTOP?!. Simple ... lol. It's up you basically?. :-D


Which is better?

Alpha cool Icebear 360 is pretty good too but a sod to fit. Annoying that my crappy i7 8700k isn't delidded and so it's massive overkill.


But the H150i doesn't cool as well and produces pretty much the same noise levels https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/8540/corsair-h150i-pro-rgb-cpu-cooler-review/index7.html


Ooooooor you could buy a H150i which will have smoother lighting and a newer asetek pump for about the same price, the only draw back is that it won't come with RGB fans

Not a good deal this unless you very specifically want this exact motherboard, desperately want the 8086k over the 8700k, and need to do it now. Should be able to get these components for comfortably around the 700-750 mark (assuming 8700k), and probably cheaper if you take time waiting for deals.


This is cold....


I love how intel are now pushing the "our processors are good for games" marketing...... the reality, the GPU is most of the bottle neck, not the CPU..... why is it most configure your own PC sites refuse to let you pair say a core i5 with a 1080Ti....think im just going to build my own PCs from now on


This bundle would be good if they swap that Aorus motherboard for the Asrock Taichi

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Desktop CPU - AM4/Hex Core/3.6GHz – 4GHZ turbo/ 16MB/95W £136 CPU-WORLD-UK LTD Amazon
Found 28th SepFound 28th Sep
£136 for the 1600X it's unlocked great performer and cheap given the prices of Intel these days the seller is CPU-WORLD-UK on Amazon. Hopefully the link works

I see, Thanks for the info. What I meant about the motherboard was people had issues when they bought the 2nd Gen Ryzen and realised it didn't work because their motherboard requires a BIOS Update. And updating requires the previous 1st Gen CPU. AMD provided the boot kit solution later on though. But of course, this would have been a hassle back then right? Overall I'm all for compatibility, unlike Intel motherboards. but thing is, I won't be upgrading until 3-5+ years which means it doesn't really affect me that much. Thanks again though. Thanks for clarifying. Well then W3680 it is! Now to wait for a 1080ti on sale for ~£500


This deal doesn't seem to be available anymore, however the 2600 is now on offer at eBuyer! £149.98 inc free delivery (Same price as Amazon Prime, but actually in stock :)) https://www.ebuyer.com/830816-amd-ryzen-5-2600-am4-processor-with-wraith-stealth-cooler-yd2600bbafbox Just picked one up, I'd recently switched to a Ryzen 2200G but that will go on eBay now :-)


The W3690 is only a tiny bit faster than the W3680 but costs nearly 50% more so probably not worth the extra. 24GB is 24576MB (1024MB is 1GB)


Silicone lottery applies to any CPU regardless of manufacturer. Also motherboard compatibility isn’t really something that needs ‘fixed’. The latest intel CPUs only work with 1 generation of motherboard. The AM4 AMD CPU platform is compatibility with last gen, current gen and apparently the next 2. All that’s needed is a Bios update. To me that isn’t broken, it’s a fantastic selling point. Though more so for 1st Gen owners. All you do is make sure you buy an updated B350 or X370 or make sure you buy a B450/X470 board. No different from if you bought Intel.


My motherboard: GA-X58A-UD3R (rev 1.0) Seems to be compatible with up to the Intel Xeon W3690 CPU but not with the X series which is a shame. ;( https://www.gigabyte.comrev-10#support-cpu A quick search and aliexpress have it for around £53. As well as W3680 for around £37. Higher clock is better you say right? Though, I researched and someone said that W3680 only utilizes up to 24gb RAM. A quick 'dxdiag' and my RAM is a little over that (24576MB). would this cause an issue?

Also great for mining XMR ;)


And it never felt so good. For too long Intel have been delivering incremental upgrades with high costs for the consumer. Forcing them to upgrade their motherboards and ram at times just to get the new processor. It's time they were brought down to reality. AMD deserves another chance.


Despite the blurb, not a good choice for gamers. Better for Adobe content creators.

Hi Karly, Did you change from $ to £ before you ordered and payed for? Or did you pay in $, if you did then you would be surcharged, if you paid in £ then no you probably should not, I have never been surcharged and I have bought many times from Aliexpress, always using my Mastercard PAYG Credit Card. Not sure about Debit Cards.


Just received both and tested working fine. Both came with android 7.1.1 and confirm they have no Bluetooth which isn’t a problem for me.


My 2 boxes have cleared customs and should hopefully be out for delivery today. I noticed on my bank statement that I was charged two surcharges for the purchase on my visa debit card. Having never used aliexpress before, is this the norm?


OK, got you. I guess op got lucky. (y)

yeah I know, but its an ocd thing lol. sometimes they don't make sense. I know I don't need to wash my hands 3 times every time I go to the toilet but it doesn't stop me from doing it.


aaand its gone


The water is distilled, thus making it non conductive. Depending on what you've bought, most Motherboards, RAM and GPU's are covered in a thin waxy kind of layer - this further improves the repellant of water if you had a leak. However, if screwed in correctly, a leak is very rare with Liquid Cooling solutions. I'd look into buying something from EK-WB - probably the best water cooling company out there.


I do love the 212, I don't love its fans 212 with noctua fans (highfive) maybe next time round I might go with something else, I keep thinking liquid but I cant imagine putting water inside my case... how is that a good idea lol!

Purely for gaming get a cheaper CPU (like a 2600 if there's a deal or even a Ryzen 3) and a 1060/RX580 instead. This CPU is overkill and a 1050ti would strongly bottleneck.




Have the 1700 (paid £300 on release), absolutely best PC experience I've ever had. Slick, can stream, edit and game without breaking a sweat. AMD are killing the CPU game IMO -- wouldn't go back to Intel at this price unless you paid me to.


you have no idea what you're talking about.


That's true, I think they start throttling around the 85c mark (even Intel), but I wouldn't say that the Ryzens overheat compared to Intels. They're on par with Intel on that regard. Intel's IPC is obviously better clock for clock, but it all depends on the usage.

Good post op, couldn't decide whether to go with the 2700X or the 1920, this helps with the decision, bought! :). Heat added.


Already bought - but I wasn't going to mention the 64gb of DDR4 I bought earlier this week for just over £300 as some people may have DDR4 memory sitting around. At times you can still pick up a "bargain" on ebay - if by bargain you mean last year's purchase price...


A 3770 uses DDR3 RAM. Threadripper (and EVERY PC made since 2014!) uses DDR4. Add £150+ for memory


Currys also have the MSI SLI plus X399 for £256 with the 10% off see https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MSI-SLI-PLUS-X399-TR4-Motherboard-Currys/132566772913?epid=24010211950&hash=item1edd986cb1:g:jQoAAOSwoIlaw0So . CCL had the 1920x on ebay at £330 earlier this week and I picked up the board earlier today to go with it.. All in all £580 for a computer 3 times faster than the 3770 it's replacing isn't a bad deal...

I have a 1700 on stock cooler. I've just bought a BeQuiet Dark Rock 4. But the Wraith Spire is perfectly decent at a 3.6-3.7Ghz OC for normal use.


I hope it was obvious by my comment that I know 65W TDP is total... I compared all the chips and said they would be, essentially, the same. Look up at this comment.... And numerous others suggesting you don't need a 3rd party aftermarket cooler. I'm saying -- You do. Why not get the 1700x without a cooler, for cheaper, and tag on the cooler I said? It's magnitudes better. It's not close. The Wraith doesn't cool anywhere near as good as a 25 quid cooler, which I just provided evidence to.


I didn’t brush it off at all. There is a difference between the stock coolers and aftermarket. My point is that for an out the box cooler, people on a budget wouldn’t go far wrong using it at reasonable over clocks. If they don’t overclock then there is zero reason to go for a better cooler. Your ‘test’ is for CPUs clocked higher than I stated. I didn’t say run the 1700 at 3.8-4.0GHz on stock. As for 65W TDP, you do know that relates to the whole die, not per core. So in a sense it is still relevant until you hit higher clock speeds. Let’s also not miss this is an Unlocked 8 core CPU for £156 with a respectable but not amazing cooler included.


Thanks I will keep an eye on it.

Guess if you have to stick with the AM3+ then why not. Personally wouldn't upgrade just now, save bit more and get Ryzen.


I had a phenom II x4 965 BE and all I heard on the net was that an fx upgrade would be slower for games. Not for me. I still have a PCs with 6350 and 8350. The 6350 is with a gtx1070 (don’t ask... just accept the mismatch) however, I can still play almost any game on very high settings at 1440p 60fps. CPUs are overrated for gaming. Save your money for a better gpu rather than cpu (if u have to chose). Yes my Ryzen is faster, but the OP would need to get new memory, new motherboard as well as the new cpu. At some point just_uk will have to fully upgrade. Maybe now is not the time


Sorry but cold. These need to be sub £50 now and even then only worth it if you have a existing AM3 set up in need of upgrade. With prices on first generation Ryzens plummeting, which are still very powerful CPUs, there has never been a better time to go AM4. Even on a budget AM3 is a bit of a false economy since there is no upgrade path so this 8350 is as good as it will get and when you eventually go AM4 (or Intel equivalent) you will get back less than half what you put into these parts as demand for AM3 is low since Ryzen is now affordable enough for most people...


I have the E version of this - 75w compared to 125 and not too much difference in performance from what I could gather. I agree with some of the comments above - I wouldn't be buying into an AM3 processor now. Better to save some cash at get an AM4 on the go and upgrade as you go. This is £70 you won't be getting any of back.


These any good for a cheap, small virtualization box?

You'll need DDR4 memory too which whilst it's expected to drop in price over the next 12 months, is still expensive currently.


An i7 6700k should be superior to this for gaming especially if you are gaming above 60fps it will of course vary from game to game. The techreport have a nice analysis as always. The 6700k can be had for £160 with a 2 year warranty from CEX. The upgrade path on the intel socket will be more limited though I think you can only go to a 7700k vs support until 2020 on the amd socket? As you say there is usually a bigger advantage to upgrading your gpu and possibly memory. If you game at 60fps or lower upgrading your cpu is probably not cost efficient once you factor in the cost of a new motherboard and memory if you have a high end cpu from the last 5-7 years. Most games are designed with ps4/xb1 in mind and their cpus are very long in the tooth now.


Ahh okay I have a i5 8600k


On price this is equivalent to an i3-8300 and on performance its roughly equivalent to an i7-8700 on some things, slightly worse one others. A lot of people on this thread are moaning about how it's not as good as an i7-8700k in games or whatever, but this is £150, the i7 is £350. apples and oranges. The difference of £200 is far better used getting a better graphics card since cpu is unlikely to be a bottleneck and gpu makes the biggest difference in games anyway. FWIW I have an i7-6700k which is probably quite similar or slightly worse than this processor.
