    Any deals on a gaming SFF pc.

    • +2 votes

      No, there never will be. Either you have to get a Low-Profile dGPU and something like an OptiPlex.

      Or you have to get a SFF Case (eg SilverStone Rvz02) and build the PC inside that using discounted parts, or from a different build like this one.

    •  

      Yeah, I doubt they'll do it for years, if ever. The vast majority of their clientele is just looking for a gaming PC, not with specific niche requirements such as SFF. They work on scale, volume and speed, so any SFF builds would not be deals if they even offered them. There's just nowhere near the same demand for it. You're welcome to buy the components from them unassembled and build SFF yourself but it's a little redundant to do that, might as well eBay part hunt.

    “750W PSU (should be Thermaltake Litepower)”

    It is or it isn’t, not should be.

    •  

      Should be likely means will be until their stock runs out. It's that "I want to guarantee something but don't want to keep track of 10s of parts over threads to ensure our stock hasn't changed a few weeks after it was posted".

      • +10 votes

        Well it could be false advertising where there was never any 750W PSU Thermaltake Litepower PSU or limited quantities of it to be of any significance. I rather it read "750W PSU Thermaltake Litepower for first [insert number here] units sold".

    • +1 vote

      That's the risk you take with these systems. There are usually no guarantees on what parts you are going to end up with, but the prices are almost always unbeatable.

      I've always built rigs by handpicking the exact parts I want, but it's time for me to upgrade and at these prices I'm finding it very hard not to pull the trigger on a 2080 Super build.

      •  

        Can always upgrade piecemeal overtime. Would prioritise RAM and SSD, then PSU before the 1-year warranty expires.

    •

    Ordered earlier for 3500X system. When will the delivery commence? Great deal btw

    •  

      We're just getting hold of initial 3500x deliveries so some systems are shipping this with our aim of getting back into 7 business days for all existing orders by next week.

  • +2 votes

    Damn nice deal! I ordered the last 3500x/5700 deal but paid more for lower specs (8gb RAM, extra for b350m, only 550w PSU).
    It hasnt been completely built yet, is there any chance of upgrading the order?

  • +2 votes

    Another awesome bargain , you will again techfast!!

    3500+5700 seems to be a winner

    •  

      *3500X (= underclocked 3600. Very different to a base 3500)

      Yes, this deal is great.
      The CPU is great value, the GPU is great value, the PSU is great value, and the Case is great value.

      It would've been a little better if the memory speed was faster (3200MHz), and the Mobo was a B450 or X470 instead. Even if it was a cool $999 or a bit more pricey, that would've been very worth it. The SSD storage is a bit low at only 256GB, but there are plenty of deals for cheap 1TB SSD's (WD Blue3D m.2 is great value) and also for cheap 2TB HDDs.

      • +2 votes

        Would you say it's worth it to pay $59 to upgrade the memory to 3200MHz and $99 to upgrade to the B450? What is the advantage of the B450 over the B350?

      • +2 votes

        3500X = underclocked 3600

        Calling it an underclocked 3600 is not quite correct. It's the same base clock as the 3600, but only has 6 threads instead of 12.

        • +2 votes

          Yeah, I worded it wrong.
          It is actually an undercut 3600, with the SMT disabled. I know there are people trying to fiddle with it and see if they can unlock SMT, just like how some people were able to flash say their HD7950 to HD7970, or their old Phenom CPUs.

          @hotdog85
          The extra bandwidth in memory is to speed up the "infinity fabric" so that there is better thread performance among the cores. It's also useful for any iGPUs if that was the case. The B450 mobo was designed to run Zen2 better, but more importantly you get PrecisionBoost (like Intel's Turbo Mode) working. There's also StoreMI which is like Intel's Optane or Storage Management, and seems to be working well.
          …The upgrade of these two details will likely cost an additional $50 or so, and I imagine that TechFast would pass on the costs to the customer without inflating it (ie not overcharging), this would make it really the best value option out there.

          Entry grade:
          8GB 2400MHz, No dGPU, 256GB SSD
          APU based on either AMD 2200G/2400G/3400G
          Or based on Intel Core i7 2600/3770/4790

          Low-end:
          2500X, 8GB 2600MHz, RX 570, 256GB SSD

          Midrange:
          3500X, 16GB 3200MHz, RX 5700, 512GB SSD

          High-end:
          9900k, 32GB 4000MHz, RTX 2070-S, 1TB SSD Nvme

            I remember back in the days you could unlock the old Athlons by drawing on them with a pencil!

    Really good deals from you guys!

    Wish you sold components (particularly gpus), but I understand why you don't.

  •  

    Hi Techfast team,
    I've sent correspondence 2 nights ago without a response regarding a critical issue with a system I bought from you in August this year. Thought I'd try here to get a response.

  •  

    How long from order to delivery?

    •  

      I'm not associated but previously Luke has mentioned 7 business days to process the order and ship, so give a few days after that for shipping. Apparently there is a bit of a delay for 3500x systems though as they were awaiting stock and had a large amount of orders.

    •  

      Yep cheapsuit is right, but of a hump getting over initial 3500x orders but most orders placed now should be dispatched within 7-10 business days.

  •  

    Hi Luke and co,

    Will the gold rated PSU upgrade be a semi/full modular unit?

    Thanks!

  •  

    Wondering what 5700xt models they'll be bundling with this

      It's in the OP:

      Both 5700 and XT have been predominantly MSI Mech recently, but any model used will be a non-blower variant.

    Been following you guys @luke for weeks, finally caved and got the 5700xt version after lots of consideration. Can't afford the 2080 Super, looking forward to getting it delivered!

    •  

      Grats on the purchase.

      I've been looking to upgrade for ages, and finally pulled the trigger.
      Originally was getting a cheap system with the 580, ended up with the 5700XT as well.

    Can I get this with a different motherboard?

    Is there a big difference between a B350 and B450 motherboard?

    If you're on leave, is this the last deal of the season?

  •  

    Hey Luke. Any bundle's planned for the upcoming deals?
    Hopefully with mouse, kb and 144hz monitor.

  •  

    Wow! Between this and the 2800 super deal, really impressed by your prices so far.
    Just to confirm, is the 5700xt a reference card or branded with customised cooling. Cause from what i can tell from reviews the thermals are kinda terrible on the reference card.
    If not, is there a chance we will be seeing custom 5700xt in future deals? i.e. Gigabyte, Power color, asus etc.
    Don't mind holding out a couple of months if that's the case.

      Check out dat description my friend :) No reference cards in sight, based entirely off OZB customer requests. All dual fans. Most prominent model is MSI Mech.

  •  

    What do you guys think about buying this PC, putting the 5700 XT into my current PC then selling this PC with my old 1070? How much would the upgrade cost/How much would this PC sell for with a 1070 in it instead?

  •  

    Luke - I do appreciate your work

    Can you explain the price rise in this system:
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Ryzen-5-3600-RX-5700-8GB-120GB-S...

    Was $1099, now $1299 just as the 20% discount coupon kicks off ?

    It's still OK value, but 20% off $1099 was a lot better deal.

    On face value it looks like a pure price jack.

    •  

      From what I can recall, they weren't supposed to be part of the sale but just had issues getting themselves removed.
      - The price jack covers them losing $$$ on it.

        EBAY/Paypal cover the 20%. It costs techfast nothing….

        •  

          The '20% off select retailers' discounts are split between eBay and retailer. Exact figures seem to vary, but consensus seems to be that they wear about 10% each.

          10% off sitewide is different, that is when it is all on eBay.

          Also I believe the price on that system went up a few days after the current discount code had started.

          •  

            @djkelly69: I have worked in a larger retailer on eBay then techfast.

            Every campaign in the 5 years I did it, PayPal and EBAY funded 100% of the discount…

            What surprises me is EBAY was not keen to do it if your positive feedback rating wasnt high - at <95% I would have thought Techfast is under threat of losing these deals.

          •  

            @djkelly69: This is roughly correct
            EBay do not fund all of the larger deals.

    •  

      Thanks for checking in. Since our main focus is now the 3500X we are buying them in the quantities we used to source 3600 in, so our pricing for 3600 has risen dramatically due to reduced quantities, and the pricing of 3600 systems has risen accordingly.

      The 3500X is where our best value now lies, and our website will always provide the best possible pricing because of associated selling fees etc.

      •  

        Thanks for the clarification. Personally I'd prefer the faster 3600 but each to his own.

        My son is thinking of doing a 3600 build (his first) and the original $1099 less 20% would gave been too good to refuse.

        Enjoy your break

  •  

    Do your systems come with wifi cards? And if so, what spec?

  •  

    Would this rig run a 34" ultra wide for games like overwatch? Struggling to game on my existing comp, safe would be to go the 2080 build but was hoping this one would be good enough :(

  •  

    What would be the better upgrade on the system - 3200mhz ram or a NVME SSD?

    •  

      Both will give negligible differences. The ram will increase FPS by a few frames per second. The SSD will reduce loading times by a little. And copy times, i

    They're having massive delays with their orders. I ordered the 3700x system on 31 Oct, but they haven't built it yet two weeks in. Shipping takes another week. Ugh. I'm starting to regret my purchase.

    Thanks luketechfast got the R5-3500X Gaming PCs (16G/B350/240G SSD): RX 5700 with some additional upgrades.

    For those people out there that aren't computer programmers or computer savvy and are interested in having one of these gaming systems built by Techfast, maybe for a gift for a teenager (like me) and have a few questions regarding your requirements or don't know where to start, I would strongly suggest you call Techfast support on 1300 898 956 or email support@techfast.com.au or email and request a call back. I did a couple of times and they were very helpful when choosing the machine and upgrades.They even sourced and packaged a disc drive for my system. I cant recommend them highly enough at this stage.

    •  

      I called the number, got an automated machine directing calls.

      Whether I selected sales or support it said 0 agents available and hung up on me. 80 cents down the drain.

      •  

        I found that sending them an email with my phone number and requesting a call back worked well for me. They called back within about 20mins. Maybe give that a try.
