Try it out now. I edited your privileges and hopefully, that should get things working for you.

Bloody heck that's cheap. Bit annoyed but hey it was only £28.

I think Steve on GN said it best "but Intel won't drop their prices but AMD do".

£28 is definitely not that bad. Try being one of those who bought one in 2017, the difference between what I paid and the current price there is over £550. I expected the price to drop by 1-200 but nothing as much as it has. The biggest kick in the balls though was TRX40 as it means I can’t even drop in a worthwhile upgrade like I had planned. First time amd have managed to actually cheese me right off. £1100 system that is a dead end in under 2 years, smells a lot like Intel, except it’s not.

TBH you have loads of options. 16 core, gen 2 etc.

I've kinda limited myself to what I got because of the board. 8 phases IIRC.

I did it for many reasons though. My old cpu boosted to 2.8ghz. so even though 4ghz doesn't sound like much and there are far better gaming CPUs out there I still get an extra 1.2ghz, with a nice IPC gain thrown in. In AVX I get 1.8ghz. Big numbers.

What I paid? Meh, I'll just use it til I fancy something else. However what you paid and when you paid it it was dirt cheap. Remember, Intel were still selling the much hotter and far slower 5960x for £900.

I was predicting a core war for 8 years. Anyone here will remember me bashing on about it. I didn't expect it to take this long, but yup, full blown core war.

What's nice is that unlike Intel AMD drop their prices massively. You just need to bear that in mind now and adapt, avoiding new and shiny. The CPU war is now raging at top speed, so 3 months is about the top now and then it's onto something else.

The only thing I'd ever consider buying new at launch is a GPU. Mostly because it buys you more time. GPUs are an epic waste of money and I've learned to accept that but everything else I'm very frugal with.

Pretty sure any provider should be able to, but you might need to call them.


The problem is these scam callers are spoofing UK numbers to get around the blocks being put in place.

Can your service provider not do that for you?
