Seems to have held its price. Paid £145 about 4 months ago, it's great CPU for productivity.

This may have expired, but can still get a 2700x here for 159.95. or in fact 151.95 with the 5% off offer. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333654191149

I got a 2700. It's a great CPU but I should have got the 3600 - I just got a good bundle price and it never feels slow. Not sure I'd do it again though.

kyeung

Must had been a good deal when I got it last year, I was expecting price to drop not increase after a year thats all. But yea I think you're right a decent CPU like this is fair to be between £150 to maybe £190 as I didnt realise the 3700x was pricing £250+ lol

BluesFanUK

Decent deal if you're upgrading on the AM4 platform, though if you're in the market for a new PC, AWD-IT have this for £159.99 when paired with a bundled motherboard. Tested and installed in the socket for you, and probably packed a lot better than Box too!

Might be a decent price for a board of this type but there is pretty much no reason to buy it with B450 boards the price they currently are unless you already have a spare intel CPU.

formsm2000comp

I bought this on release for £100 so thought this would be cheaper than now. Especially since 5 series has been released. No problems from me though. Hopefully will accept next gen Ryzen CPU no problems.

Beasted_

I’m not near my computer at the moment so can’t check it sorry. Yeah my box stated 3rd gen too but when I spoke to scan who I bought it through they told me that was the issue and they had had a lot of people in the same boat. They arranged for a collection updated it for me, sent it back and it worked perfectly at no cost. It might well be something different with yours but worth considering. If I had known that from the start it would have saved me a lot of time as I hadn’t tested outside the tower first so ended up taking everything apart over and over again checking every component and making sure it wasn’t something I had done. As far as I could tell the only way to do it was to have an older gen processor but I am no expert I just followed the advise I was given at the time.

I have switched surge protected ext behind my TV unit. I just think if you not using them all then safer for the others not to be on. I have spare socket available on it, for eg. The vac, fan it may just be me but for peace of mind I prefer switched.

And because I might as well post it, the A-Pro is also on offer from that seller: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/msi-b550-a-pro-atx-am4-motherboard-ps12321-at-box-deals-on-ebay-using-code-3523602

Papso

Watch the video if I remember right it’s similar or about the same as the top end b450 from msi. I think it’s worth paying an extra £30 for the a-pro which has better vrms and a better heatsink. They nicknamed it the new b450 tomahawk for the b550 range due to its price to performance

plewis00

Anyone know what the VDH stands for in this board’s title? Some of the low-end Asrock boards have this tag too? If it’s like the last B450 Pro-VDH isn’t it fairly low-end in terms of VRMs - just looking and felt a higher-end B450 board like a Tomahawk or Mortar might be better?

The MAX variants are 3000 series ready.

Fulliautomatix

Bear in mind that this board might need the BIOS updating before it'll take the Ryzen 3600 and you'll have to mess about waiting for a warranty kit off AMD. There's a lot of these being sold cheap at the moment, and that seems to be the reason.

specsmccoy

Also, if you buy a decent cooler like the Arctic Freezer 34 you can lock the CPU to 4.2GHz (its boost clock) with 1 click in the BIOS. Depending on the board, it's called OC Genie or Game Boost in the top left corner after entering BIOS. Whilst you're there don't forget to enable XMP on your RAM

Brutes

Many thanks for all the replies. Will do this and wait for 3600 for better price. (y) (highfive)

specsmccoy

This is a better motherboard than the one in that deal so I'd go with this. I think you can pick up the Ryzen 3600 for £160 from Aria. ASUS seems to be more expensive for inferior products, I guess because of their brand name clout. I mainly use MSI boards in my PC business because they're super reliable and well priced

I think those days are gone mate, even us intel boys want a change, and are sick of being abused by the monopoly they had on us at the top end. Now we have viable choices, with no compromise. I'll be waiting till Christmas for the new Zen CPUs to come out and hopefully a rtx3080ti will be retail in the UK by then and can get myself a Christmas gift (y)

rev6

I disagree and the Zen 3 CPU's aren't a refresh, like the XT's for example.

shamus21

If you are on a budget then AMD is the goto but enthusiasts still go for Intel. It will be interesting to see if the landscape finally changes this autumn / winter with AMD`s refresh.

polarbaba

Depends on the use case and specific game. That gap has largely pretty much closed. I'm now happy to buy AMD.

tucka20

That's a really good price. I've just sold a standard 5m cable on eBay (surplus to requirements as I had 2) for £120 so get a new one for this is great. For people asking how long it takes to charge, my 10a charger pulls 2.2kw from the wall and of that, 2kw goes into the battery. In my Outlander, that's just under 5 hours to charge. My Leaf 24kw is around 10 hours (it doesn't have full capacity and never gets fully drained). I wouldn't want to charge an i-pace or Tesla from a 10amp charger!

terriclarkfan

If you'd only need the full 10m occasionally, keep most of it wound up with a couple of releasable cable ties but leave however much you need every day at each end loose. That way it'll be no harder to deal with day to day, but you'll be able to release the full length easily when you need it.

scorcher

As I tried to explain above its not about blowing home fusebox, it is about the plug overheating if there is a bad connection. Yes things like kettles take as much power but they arent so likely to have the cord yanked and left on full power continuously for hours unattended.

edddeduck

For people who wonder why these aren’t included is because they are an emergency item. You never really use these for any kind of regular usage. You can use them when your home charger breaks, or you end up somewhere where there isn’t a rapid charger nearby. It’s also useful if you massively miscalculate and end up with not enough range to make a charger and you need to find a local shop or house and give them a fiver to put enough charge to make it to a charge point. It’s the same as having a spare Jerry can in your boot just in case you run out of fuel. I’ve driven 50k miles using an electric car in the last 2 years (100 mile a day commute) and driven the length of the UK on holiday a few times during these two years. I've used a granny charger only a few times since I bought it. Once at my parents home in a rural location to top up and at my home for a few days when my home charger broke. Normally you’ll never need it but you’ll be so pleased you have one in the boot when you do.

Fuzz

Power output on all UK 3 Pin granny chargers is 10A as far as I know so you should never really blow your home electrics as your home wiring and sockets should be rated to 13A. For perspective a 10A granny charger will pull about 2.3kW at 230V (10A x 230V = 2300W) which is similar to what some kettles or fan heaters will pull. A lot of the UK power grid is actually 242V which would mean 2.42kW at 10A I use the granny charger at work with a 20m extension reel and have no problems regardless of the weather as my extension reel is IP rated. At home I use a Myenergi Zappi EV charger which is about 30A (7kW) rated. It can throttle the charge rate to maximise using the electric generated by my Solar Panels and also has integrated scheduling so you can charge the car cheaper if you have a E7 electric tariff and can be controlled via its app. In my opinion one of the better ones on the market available via the OLEV grant. NOTE: Since July 2019 only smart chargers are available via the OLEV grant due to government changes to the scheme.

The timer function is great. I use mine to switch on/off lights in my daughter's bedroom for when she's not using them and also programme it to switch off TV/Laptop/Blu-ray player in her room too so they don't sit on standby. I've got another one that I've still to fit and living room lamp will be programmed to switch on ahead of me coming home etc

smephone

I had similar issues when installing these. Thankfully my Xiaomi phone allows you to force the phone onto the 2.4ghz network. Sadly my Android One phone doesn't, so it was a bit hit or miss making the initial connection. Likewise I've found these sockets to be great. Alexa and Google Home control is rock solid. I only use them for controlling lamps and fairy lights. I've never bothered with the timers etc.

ADT2000

Same deal has been posted twice in recent weeks.... (y)

madball

I've installed one of these and the physical fit is straightforward, however the connection to network can be challenging as these only connect on 2.4ghz. I've a wireless Mesh network (needed as old house and signal doesn't reach from router) and it is 5ghz unless you set the device to be reachable on 2.4ghz for a short window to be able to connect, my phone got stuck in 5ghz for ages until I switched off mobile data. It may plug and play for some, but like me you might have some challenges. On the product side it works really well and I've now programmed on/off patterns for certain days and times for devices as they can be predicted. You can also programme left or right side independently and name those uniquely so it is easy to manage
