    OCUK sell their own retention bracket for AM4 CPUs, not as high quality as the corsair ones but still does the job in my experience.

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asetek-premium-retention-kit-amd-am4-hs-04d-as.html

    Will work the same for all AIOs using Asetek pumps, which includes all of the corsair AIOs.

    Hm....starting to reevaluate my thoughts on Ryzen 3. I'm not sure it is quite as good a release as i was hoping.

    On the 13th November 2017 i bought a 8700 for £269 and my cinebench scores at stock are similar, save for being about 100 less on the multi bench ( same single core though).

    Now, no doubt the IPC improvements AMD have made are impressive, and we do have a an improvement in price/performance, but looking at the reported UK prices, for a similar performing cpu at stock to what you could get nearly 2 years ago, we have saved £70.

    Not that monumental unfortunately :/

    It is a massive shame that the rumours of the 8 cores being bumped to the mid tier 3600 models and the 12 core and 16 core taking the high tier 3800 and 3900 models didnt come true.

    If Ryzen 5 2600X is 80 quid, and Ryzen 9 3900X is 480 quid, that's the most unbalanced offerings ever.

    :eek:

    The 3600 is matching an 8700K / 9700K for £200, what more do you want?

    8700K/9700K is at least £320 as well.

    I'm not sure comparing against a locked 8700 is fair either.

    Neck and Neck between 3800x@4.5Ghz and 9700K in gaming
    Intel wont be offering price cuts on 9900k, it will keep its crown as fastest in gaming

    So to get 9900k gaming performance, you’ll need a 3900, and after the intel price drops, the 3900 will be more expensive.

    Not sure about that one tbh.

    Well that’s making my decision a lot easier I have to say, and saving me money.

    But basically, to get 9900k gaming performance or better, it’s a waiting game for the £750 3950?

    You are the most unbalanced troll ever. R5 2600X is sold for £200 as we speak and R9 3900X price we still do not know. So stop posting this rubbish over and over again pal.

    Most likely, also expecting 4.6-4.7 all core on 3950x

    Also note "awaybreaktoday" is another troll, he has no CPU sample and he just posts rubbish.

    No, in fact you would probably get there with a 3600 at the same clock speed.
