    Is anyone allowed to message me what competitors they're talking about? I only know of 2 that aren't scalpers and the way OCUK has handled comms regarding this release makes me want to look elsewhere when/if the 3060 TI comes out. 63 (i think) in the queue for a 5600x. hoping if they don't ship tomorrow we at least get some communication. Thanks

    Don't worry I think he got it from 'ripofftech' for £334 I assume.

    Not talking about the politics... but completely ignoring that Taiwan isn't part of the EU... this has nothing to do with Brexit.

    #712, tempted to send my motherboard back and wait it out. At this rate I might as well wait and see what Intel have to offer

    334. Not great but I didn't even look at the price, just rammed through the pages. Fingers crossed it actually works.

    I'm just glad I'm upgrading and not building from scratch. Just that I was somewhat putting off trying to finish all the other upgrades until I got it, mainly because I'd rather not have to disassemble a full hardline loop to fit it when I get one

    Be careful with DPD, they have been extremely limiting with delivery reschedules. I got a delivery notice this morning for today 3-4pm, obviously I did not expect it to be delivered today so I cannot accept the delivery. Their option for redelivery is tomorrow, and next week. No deliver to neighbour, or leave at the safe place or deliver to one of the pick up spots. So yeah

    Not to judge....your judgement...

    £334 for an AMD CPU entry level has zero value, then again by all means your money :) I bought my current CPU and Motherboard from them, it is good however if you have a problem they are absolutely the worse, their customer care is horrible and their customer care manager and MD are a joke with legs.

    But if you have no problems then isn't N.... making the CPU!

    OCUk seem to be getting less stock than competitors, also their numbers aren't as clear as the competitor and prices are just scalping prices....also because seen how bad this is handled surely they have not hired more people to justify the extra price on the CPU (or GPU). I generally like them but this time around they are getting a big hit...

    I'm not sure what you mean. Zero value? I haven't seen it for less than £300 before so I'll take the £34 any day. I only game, no production.

    Mine too! GPU block for the 3090 arrives tomorrow but no screen still! Nightmare.

    I'm running it on air and stealing my housemates 1080p screen lol to validate it all works (and some sneaky gaming) then I'll start plumbing tomorrow. Fingers crossed the screen comes soon. Otherwise I'll just rdp from my work macbook and start installing stuff to get it ready.

    Which queue position were you for the 5950x?

    My position was below 200 and I've got no confirmation shipping email yet, I start to worry a bit lol

    That's me :p (building from scratch).

    At the end of Black Friday I hope to have snapped up some bargains, which will sit around for 4+ months whilst I wait for CPUs and GPUs to exist for purchase :p
