    Your 3900X description above says:

    16G 2666MHz RAM (3200Mhz upgrade $29)

    On the 3900X page it says the base spec is:

    RAM: 16GB [2 x 8GB] 2666MHz DDR4

    However when you expand the memory drop down, it says the default option is:

    Memory* — 16GB DDR4 [3200MHz] (2 x 8GB)
    Two modules of 8GB DDR4 RAM at a speed of 3200MHz.
    16GB DDR4 [3200MHz] (2 x 8GB)

    Hi Luke

    I'm waiting on a build with a Matrexx 55 case.
    Does this mean that you've run out of stock of the 55 or just slowly draining the remaining 55s?
    I've just sent you a couple of emails about that but didn't notice the line regarding the 55s being replaced.
    Looking to just go straight to the 50 RGB instead…

    •  

      Just replied to your email but for others in same boat, we have exactly the right amount of M55s for existing orders. You can swap to the 50 if you like - they have been ordered and are incoming, maybe later this week, maybe next, so you would just need to wait for them to come in.

    What is dust like with these cases?

  •  

    Wow - that's a lot of gaming PC's!

  •  

    Hi luke and everyone, looking for an entry-level gaming PC that I can use for a few years and potentially upgrade down the track. Heard alot of good things about the 2080. Is $1799 the cheapest point to get that? Or are there any other options? My budget was probably more low $1000's, not sure if theres any options for me.

    • +2 votes

      Considering the 2080 super alone retails for around 1099, 1799 is one hell of a good price.
      The 2800x is about $580 as well. Those 2 alone are already 1679

      •  

        wow I had no idea, that's amazing. Is there much of a difference between 2080 and 2080 super?

        I am currently gaming on a MSI Laptop with 1070 Max-Q, so pretty much anything would be an improvement at this point, plus the much better cooling vs my slim gaming laptop

    • +2 votes

      This build is quite the opposite of entry level. You're probably more aimed at something like this

    • +1 vote

      The 2080 super isn't really an entry level graphics card, in my opinion a quite good mid-range gaming computer would maybe have a 2060 super/5700XT, and probably closer to your budget. But if you definitely want the 2080 super this is a good price, I can't speak for the quality of these builds as I have not bought from techfast before. The 2080 super graphics card just on its own sits around the $1000 price mark.

      •  

        I would call it high end.
        Isn't 2080 ti top of the range. (Unless you count Titan RTX)

        2080 super is next in line

        I agree re:2060 super/5700xt. The 3800x/5700xt is amazing value but if you don't need processing power probably better of getting 3500/3600x with the best GFX card you can afford.

      Our lowest price point for 2080 Super is with a Ryzen 5 2600 for $1299; current gen CPU is R5-3500X for $1499.

      •  

        Thanks Luke, that looks great, what is the estimated time to ship from purchase? I am in Sydney

        •  

          Our build times are 7-10 business days from order to dispatch, with delivery to Sydney 2-3 business days.

      RTX 2080 super is not entry level gaming, a GTX 1650 or 1660 super is.

      If you're thinking of getting a high end card, personally I would wait for the 3000 series, but given Nvidia have very little competition at the moment, they'll probably be ridiculously priced.

      If you want a high end gaming pc right now, both these deals are very good. The only caveat is that the budget case is a little bit disappointing as the case quality isn't very good and the airflow looks very restricted. If you do buy it I would move the three front fans to the top and back (if they fit) to create negative pressure and that might be ok functionally.

    If I knew this before
    Build a pc on 27th dec 2019

    Ryzen 9 3900 $789
    Aorus X570 pro wifi $430
    G.skill 16 gun 3600 cl16 $120
    Asus 2080super dual $950
    Coolermaster mb520 $100
    Samsung evo 1 tb ssd $210
    Coolermaster gold psi $130
    TOTAL: $2729

    Though I get $16 back from Samsung
    Get a free 500gb some some new type of ssd from Aorus

    •  

      I think you have done well for yourself.
      Better MOBO, RAM, SSD, (possibly better PSU)

      Definitely worth it for extra $300 you paid IMO.

      Where did you get the 2080 super. Cheapest I see is $1090

        but worse PC case which is very important

        •  

          Both of them look like they have terrible airflow, but the Deepcool Matrexx 50 RGB looks a lot more suffocated, so no the Coolermaster is not worse, it's better but could be a lot better.

          Honestly, the casing lets down both builds significantly, especially the Techfast one.

          Ideally, only slightly more expensive, better quality and far superior airflow cases like the p400a and h500 exist, so why you would stick $2k+ hardware in the aforementioned budget cases is beyond me. Especially considering cases could hypothetically last forever.

          • +1 vote

            @iseeyou1312: Cases don't last ages but not forever, if you use front usb ports.

            I love my current case but the day will come where I need connectivity updates. Which is absurd, the front ports should be on a standardised plate, in the same way drive bays are standardised

            •  

              @justtoreply: That's a good point actually. Only now are more premium cases starting to get front USB-C ports, so who knows what the cases with only 3.0/2.0 ports will be like in 5-10 years from now. But I think that 3.0 would still be adequate.

    Any more info on these Allied PSU's?

    •  

      Probs burst out in flames I wouldn't trust it at all. I would only trust corsair, EVGA as they use Seasonic OEM which are known good. Be Quiet make some good ones which is what I currently have. There is also cooler master and asus but im not as familiar with those. This is the list I go by when building computers for people: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1116640-psu-tier-list-4...

    •  

      The Allied power supply has been our standard PSU for thousands of PCs and have proven the same reliability as other standard non rated PSUs on the market, branded or otherwise. 8 pin PCIe power, no adapters needed. The upgrade option to Gold, branded (Gigabyte G750H) is there for those wanting it.

      I don't think I really need to state for the public record that they don't burst into flames, but since it's been suggested, they don't.

    Thanks OP - was just considering building a new high end pc today but don't think I can get the parts cheaper than what you're offering. And will save me a build. Do you think stock cooling will be sufficient for this build? (will go for the upgraded PSU)

    • +1 vote

      Ryzen stock cooling is pretty good in most reviews ive read
      Even for 3900x

    •  

      The stock cooler seems to perform pretty well.

      https://www.techspot.com/review/1875-ryzen-3900x-wraith-pris...

      The case will be a big let down though. From looking at the case, it'll probably be worse than the Lian Li Alpha 550 (stock) on this chart (they have similar intakes and fans but the Lian Li has a back fan):

      https://www.gamersnexus.net/images/media/2019/cases/lancool-...

      Adding a top mounted radiator or fans and rear fan could make it a lot better (if there's room) but then you'll have negative pressure and need to deal with a lot more dust getting into the case.

      •  

        If they don't come with one (they are ordered and incoming), we will be installing an exhaust fan on the Matrexx 50. The temperature performance on the Matrexx 55 (identical cooling features) was very good with the three intakes and one exhaust. 120mm coolers are mounted at the rear; 240mm at the top.

        •  

          Is there a quantitative definition for very good?

          I can't really find any comprehensive reviews that compare the Matrexx 50/55 to other cases. The Matrexx 70 (which also has a dust filter so will have slightly worse cooling) with a 3600x and 1060 3GB has 50 degree idle cpu/gpu temps and 71/77 under load.

          https://xsreviews.co.uk/reviews/deepcool-matrexx-70-3f-pc-ca...

          I really wouldn't want to be putting a 3900x/2080 super under load in a case with such bad thermals using just air cooling, although a 240mm radiator would do a lot to compensate the poor airflow from the restrictive front intakes.

  •  

    New to computers here. Is the difference of $600 between the two for just a CPU & Motherboard worth it? Primarily to be used with gaming.

    Thanks for your advice.

    •  

      The 3700x, 3800x and 3900x will all have virtually the same gaming performance with a 2080 super. The difference between the processors is primarily for other applications like 3d rendering.

    •  

      I don't recommend the B350 motherboard at all its was meant for first-gen Ryzen and not for these 3rd gen ones. I would say don't go anything below a B450. if you can X570 for PCIE 4 but their prices are a bit over what I would say is what I would pay for a X570. I always say build it yourself its not that hard but that isn't always an option for everyone.

      •  

        I am using a B350 for my 3900x setup and it has Been working fine so far. There are many you tubers out there that have tested and none have find any issues with b350 with 3900x. If you have a limited budget and wants the best performance for the bang, you would want for more ram, more and faster ssd and better GPU before splashing on a x570 as it provides very little real performace gain over b450 or b350.

  •  

    A little confused, some options require an ATX case due to size but there’s only 1 case available (matrexx 50). Is that an ATX case ? Also are there cheaper ways of getting windows 10 or is it worth to just select it here (I am a noob)

    EDIT: also is there any point of getting an additional SSD if this is primarily going to be used for gaming or should I just stick with 1 SSD and get a regular HDD

    •  

      Yes, this is an ATX case. The component options are shared among many systems in the back end, some of which don't have an ATX case as standard, so they say that an ATX case is required.

      Others here can comment on Windows 10.

      There are varying views on speed of games on SSD versus HDD, but it is generally accepted you will get enhanced speed by loading games onto an SSD rather than HDD.

    Get so tempted by all these deal but my 2600K + 1070 is still going strong.

    Anyone have experience with their post sales support/RMA process? Couldn't get my old man's new gift to post and his old PC is rapidly deteriorating.

      in my experience, good. The hardware not so much. Had A DOA system originally which was returned/repaired, and just had PSU blow up on me, which support are also helping with (hopefully will just need a replacement without having to ship the whole system back, hopefully no further damage was done).
      So I have no complaints at all over the service. But some of the cheaper components let down these good deals in some ways

  •  

    Hey Luke, are there any updates regarding shipping on the budget PCs posted on the 27th of Dec. (Ryzen 5 3500x | GTX 1660)? I understand that you guys are probably extremely busy around this time and that delays are expected, but would just like a rough ETA since i've yet to receive one via email (ordered 28th).

    • +1 vote

      Howdy. Due to the holiday period there (our closures on 27th and 1st) today is business day 7 for purchases made on the 27th. Most suppliers have come back this week, meaning stock is coming later this week, but we should be right for dispatch by business day 10 for the majority.

  •  

    Hi Luke, just wondering if there are any upcoming plans for budget deals similar to this one? Budget Gaming PC

    •  

      The code is still active for a limited time - no guarantees on when it will be deactivated so get on quick if you want it.

  •  

    3rd Gen 8 core 105w TDP on a B350 Motherboard. I can see flames in the near future most of those boards were not built for these chips cant see that running for long. Ryzen may be good on power but these were built for first gen stuff.

  •  

    Hey Luke, are you able to give an ETA on when the boxing day sale PCs might be posted? Got that custom 3800x build with a 3900x instead. Cheers.

  •  

    Any chance to get the 3900x deal with an AMD GPU? Looking to get a great home workstation/server without having to deal with Nvidia Linux drivers.

    Edit: nevermind, just realised I wouldn't be able to cram my 4x 3.5" in there :(

    How long will this offer be available for?

    If I wanted to get back into streaminng games and launching a game's site again for the first time in 3 years… which system would be my best bet?

    Hi Luke,
    May I confirm what case is being used in these builds?

    They are also both in the Deepcool Matrexx 50 RGB case, which is replacing the previous Matrexx 55 (no RGB) previously.

    You've mentioned Deepcool Matrexx 50 RGB case however the hyperlink suggests it's the Matrexx 55 ADD-RGB case.

    Cheers!

  •  

    shipping now 39 :)

  •  

    Any indication on when the Matrexx 50s are turning up?
