WOW! Another overpriced refresh piece of hardware from intel! Don't get me wrong its a good deal compared to elsewhere, but man, who's gonna buy this? If you are gaming, just get, 6600k, 7600k or 8600K; if doing a mixture of productivity /gaming get Ryzen 1700/2700x
Legally, you can bring in up to £390 of goods for your own use from outside the EU (then there's a 2.5% charge up to £630).
What triggers a post for review? Anyway its the fastest but the extra performance is unlikely to be noticed and not worth the extra £200-300 imo. Better than UK price though, although not sure about warranty.
Its obviously going to be the fastest, but the real point is whether its worth the money. 2700X and shove the different on a graphics card. Intel have been responsible for some pretty scummy behaviour trying to mislead consumers. Tbf intel dont care about gamers as they have the mobile and server markets. we would still be on 4 cores 4 threads if it wasnt for AMD.
so how does the warranty work? -Manufacturer warranty will not apply. Please review Amazon’s return policy, which usually offers free returns within 30 days of receipt. worries me a little, on the off chance one would need to ship the cpu back to the USA?
