https://pangoly.com/en/compare/motherboard/msi-mpg-b550-gaming-edge-wifi-vs-gigabyte-x570-aorus-elite-wifi If you don't need on-board WiFi, you could save £20 and go for the B550 Gaming Plus, which is near identical to the Gaming Edge bar WiFi.


This or b550 MSI gaming edge for a tenner cheaper? What real advantage am I getting for more money?


Good price at the moment. But I need the one with 3 M2 sockets this one only has 2. Wish I could afford one of the new X570S boards.


Heard it's decent but if you want a top tier board for about £50 more get the X570 Tomahawk


Very good x570 board, good price, IMHO 90% of folks don't need more features than this board. The only things it misses that I wished it had is a BIOS selection switch and a POST number code readout. If you're not tinkering or overclocking and just want a solid mobo to run stock, this will do very well.

Has been a lot cheaper, but long time ago. This is the Zen+, 12nm AF variant. Good budget 6 core option for work. For games a slightly more expensive Intel i5 will get you higher F… Read more

Pair it with something like this and you have a great upgrade path, something which intel doesnt offer. I'd take this over a 10400f.


Sold 2 3600 for £100 each when me.and my son upgraded our systems and my son paid £120 for a 3800x off ebay


Could get the 2600 (which is what this basically is) for £100 from CEX. I bought one of these for about £70 a year or so ago!


Good performance for a budget system

There are million of used cpu's transactions made everyday. Cpu is one of the few parts of a pc that or does work or does not. I bought many in the past from ebay and CEX and never found the slightest problem, if there is a problem it would usually show quickly. Be aware of the fake one coming from China and second hand GPU's is what people should be aware of the hidden problems caused by man intervention.


LOL who in their right mind buys a second hand CPU never mind a B grade! (horror)


It was an obvious joke, no one would think it was real. Can't make jokes anymore because they're not 'relevant'


Not really, can't see how the picture you posted was in anyway a bit of fun. Your post suggested the burnt cpu was what a b grade cpu looks like from overclockers, which taking a wild stab in the dark, it wasn't.

The only time when my son said that he noticed a difference was when I upgraded hdd to ssd. CPU swaps, RAM increase, graphics card upgrade- all went un commented….


Yeah tbh I'm not much of a gamer these days, I upgraded my sons 3570k to a 2700X and he said he couldn't tell the difference. I've got a few Quad Core machines here and they all seem OK for 1080p gaming.


Sure, but not for gaming. My 4790K Oc'd to 4.9 GHz with 2400 MHz CL10 RAM gave me occasional stuttering in games by 2019 when targeting frame rates over 100 FPS. Would be OK for 60fps gaming, or office work.


Its less than 80 quid for a great performing CPU, it will be a while before 4core CPUs are retired off.


Yes... But I wouldn't buy a 4 core in 2021.

That maybe true for a live to earth fault, but will the MCB actually operate quick enough to prevent injury in a substandard installation with poor bonding and a high Ze value? That aside, what do you think will the MCB do in a neutral to earth fault?


No need if your consumer unit has rcd protection. Other available around a tenner.


Hi whok1844, just worth pointing out that RCDs don't measure leakage to earth. ELCBs perform that function but these are no longer used. An RCD measures the imbalance of current in the Live and Neutral conductors. If the difference is beyond a pre-set threshold then the system can infer that there is a fault to earth and hence trip the output. You would not need twice the fault current if you had two RCD systems in series. I appreciate what you are saying about tolerance and I agree that if the fault current was, say exactly 30mA (normal rated fault trip current), then there is a chance that one device could trip and not the other. In practice the fault current is likely to be significantly more than the trip threshold and hence both devices would trip simultaneously. Generally, if you wanted to stop your main RCD (in the consumer unit) tripping when you have a second RCD socket fitted, you would ensure the second RCD device tripped at a much lower value (normally 10mA). Well, that's my understanding anyway.


I bought this exact same one from Screwfix in November last year


Not really necessary if that circuit is already RCD protected, but make sure your present RCD works. Test it and ensure it trips. I know its a pain going around resetting clocks but better safe than sorry. If you buy this one it'll mean both trip in the event of a fault on something plugged into this. In my opinion it doesn't make anything more dangerous than before, as your original RCD would just trip taking out what it would before plus this one.
