Yeah, your find out just how cheap they are when they quote £75 to upgrade to a 650/750W Gold rated, decent PSU. Also having a 3 year warranty is great, but better not to have to use it due to cheaping out on such a critical component. I'd certainly recommend updating the opening post to warn people and have them get a quote for a sensible PSU.
Yea it’s the weakness of the build. But they do slap a 3 year warranty on the entire build so shouldn’t cause any issues. Alternatively you can just call them and ask them to upgrade it.
I'd question the usual dreadful quality of PSU that Overchargers use in these sort of pre-builds. Your can also upgrade to a 3080 for the bargain price of £400. (lol)
Double check you have removed Windows and security software.
Try a positive offset increment to the DRAM voltage. try very small amounts first. Also I got one set working by just swapping the sticks around - no idea how or why that worked.
I'll look into voltage and see if it works, what changes did you have to make? I'm using a 5600x cpu and gigabyte b550m board which both support 3600 ram speed so really don't know why it doesn't work.
Are the sticks single rank or dual rank? You can check here in CPUz...
That's a fair comment but I had 2 sets previously where this fixed it. Also this might not be the Ram,
No, the xmp profile should do all this and work. Don't want to risk tinkering with voltage and shouldn't need to.
I love how the cheapest option with free delivery is Overclockers at £31.99. Good find
And white ones for even cheaper https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08WHGT75H/ref=asc_df_B08WHGT75H1637848800000/?tag=enligo-21&creative=22374&creativeASIN=B08WHGT75H&linkCode=df0&th=1@ amazon
Slightly more expensive, but with free delivery here: https://www.awd-it.co.uk/components/cooling-silencing/case-and-heatsink-fans/cooler-master-fans-en/cooler-master-masterfan-mf120-halo-argb-led-120mm-pwm-case-cooling-fan-3-in-1-kit.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAhf2MBhDNARIsAKXU5GQqGAQ7VPi0ElpFhL3UhgGtpZwin93E9ndq0jJQE8IfXNxwlckitBsaAtK8EALw_wcB
Classic overclockers extortionate postage. Like the look of these though as you wouldn’t need yet another god awful app to run on your pc
I only got the i7 as it was cheap from a mate who was gonna get rid of it. I haven't looked at the benchmarks for the 12th gen chips. Everyone seems obsessed with amd 5 xxx chips. I've run 2 or 3 amd systems and a laptop in the past. But was never really that keen, they run hotter than Intel, especially when over clocked. I know the new ryzens are a lot better, but I'm still a little unsure if I want to get one or not. I don't really game on my PC very much either. I have a ps and xb for that. From what your saying this chip is 100's of times more powerful than our current one. There will still be a bit more performance they can squeeze out of this when they improve the stepping and again on the revised Tock die shrink and microcode improvements and fixes next year. I have to wait till after Xmas and Jan bills before I can consider the big upgrade. Providing nothing else crops up. So i will be waiting to see what happens with amd's socket am5 platform before deciding which way to go. Not sure if it's worth getting DDR5 yet as it's pricey. Also PCIe 5.0 is out soon aswell!
I'm running the same motherboard! I did consider getting the 3770k, but ebay examples seem to be going for near £100 which just doesn't seem worth it for the relatively small performance benefit. Looking at cpu benchmark the 3570k scores about 4900, 3770k doubles the threads and gets you up to 6437, the 12600k gets you to 24,000!! I think the 12600k on DDR4 will do me.
Wow, I'm also running an i5 3570k on an asus p8-z77-v pro, but picked up an i7 3770k for £40 as an upgrade (haven't put it in yet). I also have a 6th gen i7 in my asus laptop. I want to upgrade to something a bit newer for win 11 and Virtualistation. Everytime I get close to doing it. Something else comes up that puts a spanner in the works. First it was covid, lock down and the chip supply shortage. Then it was vehicle repairs. Now Xmas. It's always something. I'm not in a desperate rush, as all my stuff works, but i wanted to do a big upgrade to either a thread ripper or an i9 as it's been a while. But both are a little too expensive at the moment. Will probably have to settle for an i7 or ryzen 7 something. Plus I'll get moaned at (why do I need another computer when we have so many already that work).
I'm on a 3570k still as I don't game on my PC, but some of my productivity tasks, mainly photography based, are getting pretty slow and from the Puget systems tests, the 12600k outperforms the 5800x and sometimes even 5900x in Lightroom and Photoshop. Unfortunately the availability of Asus boards for the cashback seems to be pretty lean. I had pretty much decided on the ROG STRIX Z690-A but then discovered that it was fully compatible with the Noctua ND-15 which rules that one out. The cashback as nice, but I reckon it only equates to what prices for this same boards will be early next year when the B boards come out.
It will depend on the game I think. There is a 12700kf review with an age of empires 4 benchmark that shows these 12th gen cpus Miles away from anything else. A better cpu will generally help minimums in some games. I remember going from an i5 2500k to an i7 3770k with hyper threading in crisis 3 and in the grass scenes/levels min framerates almost doubled. Alder Lake has exceptional single core performance which will tend to help a lot in cpu intensive games. I dont just game on my pc though (in fact I don't game anywhere near as much as I used to) , but I have other productivity reasons to upgrade.
Hopefully I get bored of them by then (:I I't not normal for me to keep components for that long.
They will be fine, just won’t last as long.
Rgb version for £10 more from same supplier (y) https://www.overclockers.co.uk/nzxt-kraken-x63-rgb-aio-cpu-water-cooler-280mm-hs-01r-nx.html?_gl=1*e1eny8*_up*MQ..&gclid=EAIaIQobChMImrePgIDC9AIVl-3tCh3v4gdgEAQYAiABEgJpA_D_BwE
Woo Hoo! (y) I managed to get some DDR5 from Amazon so let the build begin!
The integrated graphics are poor on this processor and on all consumer Intel processors. Best to go for the KF version of the processor for £235?
If anyone is looking for a cheaper motherboard to get with this or the 12700 the Asus Prime Z690-P D4 is on offer for £185 at Scan (so can't link or post deal). With the cashback and rate my gear offers will be £70 or £75 less depending on CPU. I checked with Asus and you can buy the CPU and MB at different eligible retailers and still get the cashback.
Get this... You'd have to be mad to buy Ryzen right now
There is some Kingson Value stuff on Amazon which is currently out of stock. I've thrown in an order just incase as they don't charge until dispatch, so no harm if they don't ship it anytime soon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B09KMD4BR4 (There are other module sizes if you search but its all 4800MHz). That being said also contacted Kingston this morning via Live Chat. They have their own UK store and was told they won't be getting any until next year so its not exactly looking good. Edit: Amazon are giving me a rather vague "Arriving 7 Dec 2021 - 8 Jan 2022" on the order.
