You are hilarious! I'm stating facts, not slinging mud as you just did. I know what I'm doing and have the qualifications to prove it. I'm not backing anything up? LOL. I've provided sources with benchmarks in post 6, all you've done is state I'm wrong and not proved otherwise. Keep trying. ;) Good offer from CEX though. I hadn't thought of that.

fringiee

To be quite frank (like you are) you don't know what you're talking about. You haven't backed anything up, you've just looked for anything that can be taken out of context i.e. using a very specific workload as a benchmark for the overall performance difference of a whole generation of CPUs. It's like judging a bodybuilder in a competition based on their chest alone & not there whole body.If your own personal research is bad it's not my job to correct it for you, the ownace is on you. Side note: this cpu is £140 at cex https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail?id=scpuinti77740x and still, in my opinion it's not worth it unless you have a compatible motherboard already.

iceburglettuce

Ok, best that you wait 10 years and pick one up then.

MagicBoy

1) CPU from OcUK when they cleared out, forums only special offer IIRC. Aorus board from Scan. It was about £160 when I bought. They put the price up to £180+ by the time it hit this site a few days later. 2) Personally I don’t care about the LEDs. Higher end boards get better power delivery which aids in overclocking, USB 3.1, more M.2 slots, better audio etc. The rough equivalent features wise is the Z370 Aorus Gaming 5 which is ~£180. 3) 7820X probably, if the price drops. 8 core, 4.5Ghz Turbo stock. Lets see what the next refresh brings. ;) 4) Yeah, writing is on the wall for the consumer chip on the HEDT platform idea, but that doesn’t make it a bad chip if the price is attractive enough, which is what I said in my first post. You can still buy a 7700K and that’s dead-er than the 7740X as regards platform … and more expensive and slower.

That bag's way to small for the laptop.

Masteryates

This laptop is pretty portable. It's much thinner that the usual gaming laptop. Not bad at all.

Murtin

Not everyone has a lot of space, e.g. has kids, can take gaming laptop on train or away on business

MisterMadHatter

Well if you did want a portable computer, say if you wanted to take it to a friend's place or your girlfriend's, or even move to a different room in your house, you're more likely to prefer taking a single self-contained device rather than lugging around a desktop and various peripherals with you (including a monitor). Unless you have weak bones and/or muscles, they're not that difficult to carry.

That is a popular misconception. Amazon covers the purchases in line with their "Satisfaction Guarantee" but that is all. Look, they are great with returns and you may be lucky, but I wasn't with two purchases, a camera and a laptop.

Amazon warehouse goods come with 1 year warranty.

Not voting but I would not buy something for 770 without a warranty. this only has 30 days option to return. Manufacturers do not honour warranties for Warehouse purchases in general so look out for that and check what Amazon are offering.

7th Gen i7 with a pretty good gpu. Not a bad price if you ask me.
Masteryates

Just be aware that lots of us bought a deal last week on AO.com for the FX503 with GTX 1060. It was advertised as having an IPS screen but arrived with an awful TN panel. This machine doesn't say IPS in the description so I would assume its the same TN panel as our 503's. To make this deal even colder, our 503's have 128GB SSD and we only ended up paying £609. (£749 - £40 voucher code - £100 AO refund for incorrect display.)

DJSyko

But you said you have it in your laptop, so what money have you saved? You have paid a lot of money for something that compares to a gaming console.

eraldo

The idiots that come here saying the 1050 isnt a gaming gpu have no idea what they are talking about so just ignore their bull****. The 1050 sits between a 960m and a 970m and its totally adequate for 1080p gaming on the go and the gaming benchmarks prove that. The 4gb version would be better tho.

Intel i7-8700K Processor on Amazon for £292

Posted at £295.62 the other day, even lower now.
MisterFresh1980

This CPU continues to really impress me. In my opinion anyone even considering a non K 8700 over the 8700K for the relatively small difference in price you would be regretting it down the line and you would actually be getting a lower price to performance ratio! It's 100% worth the extra few £££ to go or the K unlocked chip, pics below show the extra performance increase of all 6 cores at 5ghz.

Cov1986

Nope. I'm not making the mistake of buying a locked CPU and board again. Anyone buying a locked 8400 should at least buy an unlocked Z370 board so there is an upgrade path later on. The 8600k is the lowest I would consider at the moment. Otherwise the Ryzen 1600 makes more sense.

MisterFresh1980

My friend is actually looking at the 8600k & 8400 he cant decide which one to go for. I said go for 8600k for the sake of £50 ish but I didn't know new boards were out, how much can you get a new budget board for?

MisterFresh1980

Yeah I was really put off by all the debate and bad reviews mentioning heat and needing to de-lid etc nearly didn't buy one. 1.285 volts at 5ghz mid - high 70s temps under load seems okay + only get around 50 - 60s during gaming and there is quite a considerable performance increase at 5ghz over the stock or non K 8700 after overclocking in benchmarking results. I must have got lucky too! Can always disable the hyper threading for lower temps and higher clocks and run it as a higher binned 8600k too takes a couple of seconds in bios.

Nate1492

If you are looking for good value, the 8400 at sub 150, paired with one of the new budget motherboards would be a really good deal. 6 physical cores that turbo up well.

gefafawhisp

what is the story with this website anyway? it's all over the place in their store front and item to item. Whole swathes of missing information on pre-builds. Like what is the motherboard? What is the PSU? If it doesn't list these things, should you expect your pre-build to arrive without them? It's strange. On one build they have for sale it states 8gb ram in the title, yet in the details it says 4gb ram. They seem.... like you wouldn't buy from there, why would you? you don't even know everything that is in the machine. How can this be considered a good deal, when there are components in the machine that could potentially be a stitch up because we don't know what they are.

ILikeJam

That’s a good option. Thanks for sharing. It’s not entirely surprising that you get a lesser CPU and better GPU for the same price though

Norseg

I've seen it much cheaper if you watch the prices This PC would be £1000 in a another (better) universe where there is no crypto miners, Ram prices are normal, SSD prices are normal If they dont start going back to normal soon, PC gaming will die, the manufacturers don't care since they are making a lot of money When they are making cards now I don't think they have gamers in mind, they are thinking "we've gotta make this card cheap but the best for mining, we need plenty of stock"

Xanthic

i've been looking at custom built gaming pcs and this doesn't seem bad at all. aside from the psu (and maybe ssd to boot), is it really that bad performance wise:/ EVGA gold 650w should suffice? Which are better psu subs?

sion22

so would i lol, even just the 1080TI cost £800 currently. Its easy if every part works, else its a nightmare to troubleshoot

bbfb123

Yes but if you did a pre built then something happens you will have to send your entire pc back. Whereas if you have individual warranty you only send the broken part back. Pc parts don't fail often if you buy good quality. So you'd be forever sending your whole pc back for something probably easily fixed. I've only ever sent one or two parts back on a warranty. It's relatively simple to determine which part is faulty also.

Bought similar e7240 i7/8gb in very good condition it's blazing fast and no problems whatsoever.

Benchmarks dont lie. There is hardly any difference in the 2 processors. I would pick the ssd and the i5 over that i7 plus £45 in the bank. The i5 2500 is still popular with gamers. Who ever buys this latop is wanting something fast to turn on (ssd) and be able to browse and use word documents. If you wanted to say anything to differentiate the 2 laptops it would be the e7240 has a full hd screen. But you see its tft. I used these laptops with work. Each to their own but I know that e6420 would out perform this e7240 as that i7 is not very good.

Those are not 'cinebench' projections. Those are actual numbers from multiple people. I'm not salty at all, I got my 8700k and it absolutely crushes the 8700 non k. The values you see here for cinebench are replicated on my rig as well. I run on water and can pull 5 ghz without any sweat. Your '1480' is no where near the easily reached OC's of the 8700k. But hey, if you want to feel happy about this price, go for it. I think it's a bad price for someone who is clearly interested in overclocking, I still find it really crazy you are talking about delidding a cpu that can't be overclocked. It's not crazy, it's actually just stupid, but hey, to each their own.

robodan918

Stock 8700k is reported by cinebench as 1480, and 1700 max at 5ghz oc (14% increase for a lot more heat). My 1458 is near enough to 8700k at stock that I'm happy to take the 36% lower price. Lastly - yes so crazy! #madness

Nate1492

You are delidding your CPU, putting on a water cooler, and NOT buying a 'K' version? Also, you bought it for 220 a few days on amazon, why not post the deal here where it would get tons of heat? The only current deal appears to be a 'global deal' that doesn't include the Import Fees until you click through. I *STILL* think you are crazy as you can't get anywhere near what an 8700k can get with the same effort. The fact you are buying exotic parts (Good thermal paste, delidding tools, waterblock) but NOT buying a 'k' is so crazy. There is a reason you can't go up to 103 MHz BCLK btw, because IME will freak out. Stock Cinebench scores for the 8700k are right around 1500. 4.7 = 1550ish 5.0 = 1660ish 5.1 = 1700ish That's 17% faster.... Anyway, if you are happy, fine, but I think your selling porky pies here. And don't bother, you won't get past 102.9 BLCK, I've read that 103 is basically a hard limit not based on the chip performance. Finally: Post your 220 quid deal if it exists, as it's 35 quid cheaper than anywhere else.

robodan918

nah mate after having played around with the 8700 tonight I'm sold - it's worth the 220 I paid for it a few days ago on amazon. And if it goes down to a low price, it's only a matter of time until it reaches it again. BLCK 102.9 (stable) 4.425GHz (stable) base + target 4.7GHz turbo temps: never above 50C at load (24C room/ambient temp) thanks to good air cooler (arctic freezer 33 with 2 120mm fans, and 140mm case fan) & kryonaut paste - waterblock to come, as I'd like to drop the temps down to as close to room temp as possible, but haven't built the open loop yet Cinebench consistently 1458 multicore (almost 2x my i7-6700 with otherwise identical hardware) Looking forward to seeing what this can do under water and after delid/liquid metal re-paste. Definitely worth it for me to save the money on non-k 8700 (fyi I already have the delid tools and paste, so minimal 'extra' cost there which would also have applied to the 8700k if I bought that instead)

Just.Wondering

So would you recommend me buying a i7 8600k and a new motherbosrd considering cpu usage is around 60 percent whilst gaming at 4k? Or should I save money and wait until next year? Considering that I would see no improvement in gaming as clearly demonstrated online by various expert reviewers?

There have been a few on here recently around the 550-700 mark, I'll try and find some briefly but if not search as there are many good options right now. https://www.ebuyer.com/791536-asus-zx553-gaming-laptop-zx553vd-dm968t - there's more but that was the one that sprung to mind, lots of power for the money and spare cash for an SSD.

Apparently, significant progress has been made regarding power/battery consumption on the new 4K screens used on the 2018 Dell XPS 15 laptops...

No doubt QHD drains battery faster. That's obvious. I don't have the comparator to say anything sensible, though. No problems with any apps so far, and as @tomtomato says, scaling is very good - much better than I expected. Also, don't notice any coil whine. And I've listened!

I have the QHD XPS 15 model and I don't have many apps that won't work. Windows 10 (latest updates) is able to scale pretty much all applications, including old ones, and new settings are available. I don't think 4K screens with Windows 10 is an issue anymore...

What is your opinion on it so far? I heard the QHD drains more battery and some apps wont work well on it? I don't know whether to take the plunge or not. Also do you notice any coil whine etc?

The QHD version of this machine cost me 700ish from Amazon two days ago (Warehouse). Used - Very good. It's in perfect condition.
