trash motherboard with a CPU made for overclocking with cheapo memory. Big NO. crap 'deal'
Crap stuff my amd 8150 plus board lasted 3months before it started having issues couldn't be bothered with returning it
Budget board. I probably wouldn't pay it because I would pick my parts individually and pay a bit more to get something that'll last. Find £210 for a 2600 and a better B450 board. Supports faster RAM, more likely to support more of the near future Zen 2 CPU models with better VRMs etc. It's a smarter choice long term IMO.
Don't know where you pulled that price for the 1600x, look here its 125, https://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Ryzen-1600X-Desktop-CPU/dp/B06XKWT7GD/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=Ryzen+1600x&qid=1553017249&s=gateway&sr=8-1 And doubt this mobo is worth anywhere near 60 pounds
Well it kind of is, a a320 mobo like this probably 30-40 pounds, and a 2600 is 130-140, while 2600x is probably 170-180, so for 20-30 extra you could get the newer gen if my math is right.
basically the exact same spec £991 what you should get for £1257 (much better performing for still £100 cheaper) what you could get for £1401
I bought it from NOVATECH.
I only paid £78 more and I got a better processor and an nvidia rtx 2070 :)
Yeah we muster
i have this board and its great. recommended.
Absolutely a great board, I just wanted the ASROCK gaming K4 for its dual M.2 slots
Great price for a b450 ! The tomahawk is a personal favourite of mine :D
People have been doing that, .. they create another email addy, another steam account, link them, activate the games, sell the lot. Its not 'ideal' but it works. Picking two games with the rx 570 can get the card down to silly money.
Vega 56 or GTX 1660ti/non TI is a better value if you can spend £40-50 more
No codes, you link AMD promo to your Steam account and get the games, you can't give the codes to anyone else because it doesn't work like that anymore.
Where do you get 50% more power from? Techpowerup has it at about 20% consistently under different workloads for average 590, and actually the Asrock one does better than average 590 in power consumption for everything except futuremark benchmark Techpowerup link
I assume that the free games are download codes rather than actual retail boxed products?
should be all good :) most use 3000hz ram
Thanks for the helpful confirmation as the ad doesn't say it is included anywhere that i can see. I've looked and the 2600 cpu seem to have the weaker stealth rather than the spire. I think i can live with the weaker cooling solution as i wont be overclocking very much I doubt so this is looking attractive to me. The weaker DRM will hopefully be ok as well. I already have the 3000 MHz ram.
Comes with its own cooler . AMD don't sell OEM chips like Intel so all retail with spire or wraith cooler Will need DDR4 ram, CCL doing 16GB Corsair 3000hz kit for £85, as well as the bundle
looking at this. Presume i would need to purchase a HSF for the ryzen as this bundle doesnt include.
yeah sorry, all doing it apart of Gigabyte deal but one sells out so listing 3 options gives buyers choice of store and stock
You're quick to lecture on something you know absolutely zilch about How would you feel if I lectured you about some of YOUR equiptment or computer experiences ? Give it a rest. It may be of interest to you - but not me By all means say your experience with your own stuff has been sublime. Good - you're talking about YOUR experiences, YOUR equiptment Leave it at that
More likely you broke it or didn't know how to install properly, if build quality was so bad they fell to bits then they wouldn't still be in business or would more scrutinised by the tech community. What performance are you actually talking about if you say that vrms are not important? What was the poor performance that the Asus board delivered?
No, for a start they aren't supposed to give performance problems irrespective of cost. And the Asrock quite literally started coming apart while being installed - and I paid more for extra USB slots. The Asus was all round a poor performer without falling to bits Its too easy to say cost is all. It isn't.
Dropped below £90 now. Got the b350 tomahawk and been really pleased with it and plenty of updates.
I have the older Tomahawk B350 that i picked up from ebay for £50 a couple of months after they came out. Been really happy with it. Keep trying to resist an upgrade to it because it's not necessary.
I think generally the ASUS B450 boards have been seen as over-priced. I opted for the Tomahawk in the end and am very happy so far
I have no beef with ASUS, I just looked at reviews of this bourd, please look at the video I posted.
I've not heard anything bad about this board, however if i was buying a b450 my first choice would be the msi tomahawk. If the board was bad we'd have a load of links to tech sites saying avoid these boards. The poster might be posting personal bias from a bad experience with asus.
I've seen a lot of reviews of the TUF brand, it's not exactly a mark of excellence, most companies, like ASUS with this motherboard, are just stamping their cheap stuff with this brand, not saying all TUF products are crap, but it doesn't fill me with confidence when I see this stamped on a product.
great price for quality motherboard, beware however, that it may require a bios update to work with 2ng gen Ryzens.
Here is the earlier post, have a read
Sorry this has all that or the tomahawk ??
Better VRM for overclocking and potentially future CPU’s. Better fan control. Not sure about any other differences.
How does this compare to the Tomahawk ?
why use buildzoids video,he breaks more stuff than he repaires and openly admits it...
It's not really worth it, not because of Ryzen but because the i7 9700k does 99% of what this does for significantly less.
It’s not that it was produced to perform well in older games, it’s just at higher resolutions even a 2080Ti becomes the limiting factor long before the cpu. It really depends what you are using the cpu for.
Agreed, Ryzen cant touch it at FHD screen rez, but at 4K there is apparently 1fps difference between the 8800K, 9900K and the 2700X (or so several reviews I just read suggested). its like the 9900K was produced to perform well in tests and older games!!!
the i9 is a plainly a faster cpu, but its price/perf compared to ryzen is abysmal. Unless you actually need the extra performance, and don't mind buying into yet another dead-end platform, there aren't many reason to go for it. And even if you need the top single core performance you can get, the 9700k is just as good for significantly less money.
CCL sold out , Box has 4 left in stock
back in stock!!!! 10+
i had a review sample so luckily it was flawless! havent overclocked the panel yet . know the G-sync model will do 165hz when it rolls out . Monitor is nice if in an open space for RGB to be seen- surprised it has more rgb options then the rtx 2*** aorus cards haha
Yup, I have the Aorus 1440p monitor too. I love it, except the RGB at the back which is pointless. The colour accuracy of the screen is amazing though and on the 'Speed' setting I've had absolutely no ghosting or anything. I've got 0 bleed as well which is fantastic.
CCL has sold out this morning! more should be coming in. NovaTech is ORDER ON REQUEST. box.co.uk has a few units in
Would this be suitable for gaming with a new cpu? Like the i7-8700?
got one of these... its a full size board, so think on when case buying..
Just snap a Pentium G4560 and 2x4GB DDR4 2400 on this baby, and you've got yourself a ULTRA cheap PC. Add a RX570 4GB and you got yourself a nice low budget gaming PC. All these mentioned above are extremely cheap on eBay now.
Here is the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASROCK-H110-Designed-PCIe3-0-PCIe2-0/dp/B073BX57M1 £24.98 with prime
Yes I did see that, the same price on Amazon but I'm always weary of posting deals that rely on prime to be cheaper as they don't always go down to well after factoring in the cost of Prime. If you have prime (like I do) Amazon would be the better purchase.
Hahaha I thought you knew it all though.
How about them? I do know that name guarantees the next generation won't be called the 1100 series. (skeptical) RTX was indeed the 2000 series.
How about the GTX 1660 Ti and Nvidia's historical naming conventions?
You need a qualifying piece of hardware to actually redeem despite having the code. When I got my RX 570, the codes came but I couldn't actually redeem them until the thing can recognise my hardware with the 570. It's probably doable but a hassle... It's not what you asked but just giving you some perspective if you didn't already know.
What's the easiest way of selling the game codes?
Good price. I paid a tenner more for the non-wifi version a few weeks back. Reason for buying this rather than a cheaper board was for more stability for overclocking due to the high quality voltage regulators. If you're not planning to overclock, buy a cheaper board.
Only thing to be careful of is Gigabyte have a bit of a rep for poor BIOS's they set automatic settings wrong that can lead to instability & so on usually tweakable but it's worth bearing in mind they've been quite sloppy in recent past. I've got a Gigabyte Z170-XP paid £60 for it a few years ago with an i5 6600k which hits 4.5Ghz overclock easily & is solid. I'd read some reviews carefully but I'd consider a gigabyte board again although I'd probably lean more towards Asus for Z390
It actually has useful features such as 8+4pin for extra voltage for overclockers, plus WiFi and bluetooth which a lot of boards don't come with. Also has better VRM thermal cooling along with some nice heat sinks which aim to reduce motherboard temps and Intels Optane which has potential to be something interesting for normal HDD users.
The more expensive board comes with the delusion that youll ever use any of the extra features and that the extra cost was worth it for an orange led :)
If you're asking this you don't really need it (y)
Cooler sucks on Asrock cards
Depends what you're trying to do. 1080p60fps gaming, nope. Those i5/i7 3rd generation onwards (yours is 4th) still hold up, and games are more GPU/VRAM heavy than processor heavy these days, so you'll be fine. If you're trying to do 144hz, 4k resolution or VR then you'll want more power on your entire rig. Fwiw I'm looking at upgrading my 660ti GPU to one of these when the price comes down for 1080p60fps gaming and I've got an i5-3570k CPU (a generation before yours).
Will my Intel i5-4690k bottle neck with this GPU?
This is my hope. With the new generation of cards having just come out I'm hoping on a drop for these cards. They're perfect for 1080p60fps gaming. Just need to hold out a little longer...
Lowest price I've seen an RX 580! have some heat
Yes, that is absolutely correct
If carbon adds HP on a car will I get more fps with a carbon motherboard? Asking for a friend
Agreed, cheers :)
Yep. You are better off with the B450 Tomahawk version which you can get for just a couple of quid more than this.
This is when MSI still used poor VRMs isn't it?
For the record I only ordered one (y) now enjoy (popcorn)
I don't agree with that though, we aren't talking about the shop next door, we're talking about a major retailer with lots of well thought on they're operations. Do you honestly believe that in every item posted for sale by Amazon isn't controlled by a stock limitation system? They messed up, by allowing so many orders on this particular item. Wanna sell USB cables? Of course with the limitation of item per purchase, a massive buy of cables is avoidable, but we're talking about an item that should have order quantity limitations. If I ordered 5Million USB cables would they get me that?
There was never a chance they fulfilled that. I only ordered one but they would have lost hundreds of thousands had they honoured at that price, no chance of that happening.
Do You think they would have honoured if there was 500 laptops ordereded on sinlge orders, instead of 1000 with multiple? Seriously? XD
I felt bad for missing that one
Okay, I didnt notice that, but it still doesn't, for the matter of fact mean that Amazon are in the wrong. The Contract was void.
one last reply, I'm not the guy who spoke to them, I didn't even order one of these laptops, leon is hukd member who ordered and got the confirmation and all I did was ask if he got anywhere....
Its void as it has already broken a contract (:I (:I (:I why are you speaking about this on a forum? Hardly a moron, I can assure you I have a little bit more Legal knowledge than you.. Go get a Solicitor and make sure they are a good one :D , I look forward to learning about the judgement via the Courts and Tribunals Judiciary (y)
whats binding? ffs, a representative of a company confirmed that an order made was correct and that the customer would receive the item at that price, it doesn't matter what little info that rep had as if that were the case, all companies would give their sales reps little info and we would have all kinds of miss information going around... I'm done with speaking to morons like you.
What exactly is binding? It broke their T&Cs in their contract end of, wether Leon said this or said that it broke their contract terms, making the 'deal' void. Customer service agents have little information and just want to please the customer, doesnt make anything binding.
