But you dont want heat added, isn't the idea to keep it cool?
It requires removing motherboard if upgrading old cooler to fit plate to underside of it, if your case hasn't got an access. Cool beast! There is an option to fit second fan providing you have space for it.
Doesn't seem a great price, not sure how it compares, but my brother got a Fractal Kelvin Design T12 from ebuyer for the same price before christmas, although it had to go back as the pump didn't work.
if you have the space i'd get " ID Cooling Frostflow+ 280" over this any day ..
A cheap Chinese AIO, lol what could go wrong.

amazon.co.uk/Coo…120 or amazon.co.uk/Cry…+h7 will perform better than any 120mm AIO bar perhaps H80 depending on setup.

Performance wise, the Thermalright Intel Macho Rev.B is a better option for under £40.

I have one of these for over two years and it is dead silent. The CPU stays cool under idle with the fan on its minimum 200rpm in PWM mode and even under load it is less audible than the power supply fan, case fan or GPU fans.

It is a BEAST and is heavy as well as huge. it only just fits inside my Bitfenix Prodigy ITX case which lays the motherboard flat.

RAM clearance will be an issue with tall sticks or if the CPU socket is too close tot he RAM slots (like in some ITX boards. I picked my ASUS board specifically to fit this cooler.)

Comparable to Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 3 and Noctua D14/D15 but cheaper.

MSI Z170A Mpower Gaming Titanium - BIOS Flashed to Support Kaby Lake CPUs - With FREE MSI Core Frozr L CPU Cooler £119.99 @ Novatech
393°Expired
Found 20th Sep 2017Found 20th Sep 2017
Great motherboard with a great feature set. Comes with a MSI Core Frozr L 120mm CPU Cooler
They also sell a Gigabyte Z170 board for £69 delivered which supports Kaby Lake.

Not sure why this board is considered a deal...
Ye I have to say not that impressed here I mean maybe if it were the z270 xpower T it would be worth considering but now with CFL so close only to be seeing only the z170's (two gen old) drop now is sad really, this is why they will end up with so much old stock they hold onto it for to long, the smart retailers will drop the z270's down around now on the run up to CFL in October, dumping as much of it as they can, now were on a new chipset,cpu,platform with no backward compatibility, your effectively asking for people to buy not only an old board but also an old cpu to go with it and for around the same cost as the new CFL, that's not gonna happen, yes ok sure some people already have kaby/sky lake but those who do so also already have a mobo for it.

Those trying to pawn off old z170's are wasting there time and should of thought of doing it nov/dec/last year and jan this year, in-fact even those trying to dump z270's now will have a hard job because again CFL will be priced very close and will be new and btr? I suppose but on top of that everyone's buying ryzen stuff so even those few people that are left and looking to jump to a platform it goes as follows #1- CFL, then #2- Ryzen then #3- the old z270's, retailers are in a bad spot here no doubt the longer they wait the harder it will be to dump z270 stock and unlike the last 8 years or so there has been no other competitive platform so old intel will not hold there value this time round, geez there having trouble holding there value new at the moment..

To look at it this way why buy this z170 mpower and an now old cpu vs an x370/b350 am4 board and newer high core, cheaper cpu, and get more bang for your buck?

The cooler is a nice touch sure but this
amazon.co.uk/MSI…r=1-1&keywords=x370
Or
amazon.co.uk/ROG…r=1-23&keywords=x370
Or
amazon.co.uk/MSI…r=1-24&keywords=x370

Paired with a 1600 is higher core count, cheaper, newer, and has m2 straight to the cpu, against a z170 board it's a no brainer, against a z270 again not really a tough choice, retailers are in a tough spot this time round, no mans land for selling off old stock, they btr come up with something or there gonna have a lot of right-off's.
sorry but this is cold.

Better Z270 spec boards for similar price or just a little more.

Using your Intel CPU without a cooler wouldn't be a good idea. The AMD cooler is fine for a mild overclock (see reviews). Once you get above a certain level it's not worth spending 20% of your CPU cost on a cooler that supplies you 2-3%. But it's nice that AMD give you the choice unlike Intel.2) It's cheap because it's an AMD board, but it's a good board. I listed the identical speced z270 board and to quote you "The Z270 boards, sub 100 quid btw, are all rock solid" See you saved £3 on the mobo. Nice job.I still really think you should buy a cooler. Seems a waste buying a nice fancy Intel CPU and it shutting down on anything other than the windows page because it's overheating.But you answered my point the i3 7350k is not a great deal (that you suggested it was) when only £50 more you can get a 7600k.


See, the thing is, you are only replying to the things you want to/can.

I recommended the G4560 at 60 quid, I also suggested its hard not to consider the 7350k at 136 quid.

I also said that I wanted you to show me a sub 80 quid B350 board *that was good at OC'ing*.

You didn't do that, you simply found the cheapest board that looked like it had a z270 equivalent.

Same name, not the same board.

I've taken 5 minutes to read reviews of the B350 board you posted, I wouldn't buy it, I wouldn't recommend it. I saw enough in 5 minutes to know it is more trouble.

I had one line about the 7350k, which you JUMPED really hard on.

@And the I3 7350k at 136 quid... It's hard to not consider the value there.

That's all I said, I didn't even recommend it or suggest it, I said consider it. You may have a CPU cooler already.

Anyway, I will be absolutely clear.

The G4560 is a good buy. The 1200 is not.

You can get a mobo, cpu, ram for 183 quid and that's with the CPU priced at 67 quid, mobo 57, and ram 60.

Since we're not OC'ing the G4560, and getting straight out of the box performance, we don't need to spend the extra on RAM or MOBO and we still get the gaming performance and single threaded application performance.

I've done similar builds with the 1200, and I can't pull myself to get it below 250 quid, unless I choose not to OC it, then that makes the build a waste of space, as a non OC'd 1200 is just crap.

Anyway, all this might be moot when the new set of I3s come out shortly.

The G4560 at 60 is good. The Ryzen 1200 at 96 quid, is about 30 quid too much. This is virtually the same chip.

Not as far as I could find out. There are one or two boards that can be updated without a processor fitted, but I don't think this is one of them.

It may be a case of getting the cheapest processor that you can find that fits just to do the upgrade, or else a local PC shop should be able to.

Anyone else any ideas?
Does anyone know if this is compatible with Samsung 960 Evo M.2 drives? The QVC SSD support list and PCPartPicker suggest not, but I'm not sure why this would be? I've bought the board so want to check, I can't seem to find many others of the Gen 3 NVMe spec that are confirmed to work. Thanks!

Ps. Ebuyer must have run out of the cpu fans they were giving away with this, it's no longer included.

For a KabyLake the BIOS must be later than F.20, if it isn't , then it can be updated but only by putting a skylake processor in place, which I don't have. As the 7500 I was looking at and a 6500 are similar prices then without knowing the BIOS level and not having a skylake, I can't buy this - but it's still a good deal.

Simply want to upgrade my i5-2500k and am looking at the Ryzen 5 1600 as it's got great benchmarks and is (as far as I can tell) great value when comparing to Intel's offerings. Would people say that's a fair assessment and it would be a worthy upgrade? My GTX 970 will be next but my budget constraints mean it's one thing at a time. Thoughts? Is 1600 future proofed enough? Purely as a gamer? Or worth shelling out more for this or the i7?


Purely as a gamer, the I7 is better. There is actually no comparison here, and I doubt anyone will disagree, the I7 series is better at gaming.

However, I would actually skip any upgrade for a bit longer, the 2500k is a great little chip, keep an eye out for the next two intel or amd offerings as you will benefit a lot from this renewed competition.

When people say this is better for multitasking what exactly do they …When people say this is better for multitasking what exactly do they mean?90% of my gaming is done whilst watching/ doing something on the other monitor and with various chat/ performace programs open.Would i benefit from this over an Intel then? (p.s. have had a FX6300 for years now)


The concept of multitasking is for CPU intensive tasks, such as rendering (So, if you were doing streaming with software encoding while playing games, if for some reason you don't use hardware encoding).

But if you are doing gaming+chat/video *watching* or other things, and your focus is gaming, the Intel 7700k is a better CPU for you.

Q2 of 2017 has the I7 8700k coming out as well, may want to take a hold and see how that does, may reduced the 7700k prices, the ryzen prices, or offer great performance.

I really wouldn't bother with these low band AIO unless you are simply after something that looks nice through a window.

I bought one and it was far too noisy trying to keep my 7600k cool, so replaced with a cheap Hyper 212 and that keeps it at the same temps but whisper quiet.

Looking at getting a larger AIO or a Noctua D14/15 air cooler as tests show very little difference between a good air cooler and these water coolers.

The 7600k seems to get very hot compared to previous gens which is a shame, may have to delid 😓
