    Appreciate the deals, but i'm going to keep asking for a more CPU, less GPU option. 12700F + 3060Ti/3070 ideally.

    • 'Gaming PC'. That CPU won't be doing a lot while you're playing games.

      • Don't worry about me, i know enough about the games and resolutions i play to know that they are CPU bound, and a 12700F + 3060Ti will net better results than an 11400F + 3080.

    • +5

      Did the 10700F 3060 Ti not work for your needs?

      • Perhaps looking for a productivity/video editing solution?

      • I need something that's workstation like. Something that lets me run piles of parallel python stuff but with nvidia for some 3d software I use that needs it.
        The cpu will be idle when I need the video card and the video card won't get used much when I'm running python processing stuff for 3 days straight.
        I've ordered a Dell XPS 8950 (12700K, 16gb, 3060Ti) from the ebay deal as the extra cores will be a big help but the power supply and cooling have me a little concerned.
        I'd cancel the order if I could get a slightly better build.

      • Did the 10700F 3060 Ti not work for your needs?

        I assume they are looking at the future upgrade path. So a 12th gen CPU with a lower tier graphics card.

  • Comment = Gigabyte PSU makes fireworks!
    Actually I installed a PGM 850 PSU a month ago and it hasn't gone up in flames yet.
    It's probably going to be OK.

    • +2

      Yeah, looks like the whole debacle has been resolved but the damage has been done to Gigabyte PSU reputation. Probably why it’s included with the build, cheap for the specifications because people are still weary

    OK, I'm coming perilously close to pulling the trigger on a gaming PC. I have in mind this one, or the Ryzen 5 5600 flavour or the i5 12400F variant.

    Some Googling shows that the i5 12400F is 10% faster than the i5 11400F, but also that it's 12 months newer and a newer socket type. The Ryzen looks to be within 1% of the i5 12400F. Is there anything to consider here other than being a bit faster and more future-proof?

    Also the motherboard is slightly different. The B660M has less SATA, includes VGA, is Win 11 compatible and has higher DDR4 speeds available. Anything else to consider?

    • +1

      Future-proofing here will also mean that the 12th gen Intels will support PCIE GEN 5 and DDR5, neither of which are big right now, but might pick up later, mind you if you update to DDR5 in future you will need a whole new mobo too as they do not support both forms of RAM. 11th Gen will have PCIE 4 as will Ryzen 5600. The mobo having VGA is a non-issue as Intel CPUs with an F will not have integrated graphics and Ryzen CPUs without a G in the name also will not, so all video output will be via the GPU anyway, not to mention VGA is outdated now.

  • Get this price point into the R5-5600 system and I'll buy.

      Recent drop in GPU prices made Dell and to a lesser extend techfast deals less attractive.

  • Hey Luke
    Awesome deal, any chance of a 3080 with a Ryzen 5600x?

    • +1

      5600X is effectively replaced by the 5600 as far as our offerings go. It's cheaper with relatively insignificant performance difference, leaving no real room for the X variant now in our mix. Here's that deal

      • Interesting, I don't know a whole lot on CPU's but looking at benchmarking sites the 5600x way out performs the 5600 you mention?
        https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-5600X-vs-A...

        • +8

          Userbenchmark is pretty crappy. Go on YouTube and watch gamersnexus review of the 5600 for actual real world performance. There's almost no point spending extra money on 5600x, the 5600 is the new kid for performance and value

  • +1

    Hey Luke,

    Love your work, as someone who is relatively computer illiterate regarding different GPUs and CPUs is it possible to include when a build is posted what its capable of running eg FPS or 4K for a current game eg Elden Ring? It may save some questions and help with bang vs buck for build comparison

    • +1

      If you're focused on 4K, you can ignore the CPU really because it will have no trouble keeping up at 4K on something like Elden Ring.

      Best bet with these type of questions is to punch the following into YouTube:

      Name of game benchmark name of GPU resolution

      Here's the top result for Elden Ring/3080/4K following that format: https://youtu.be/6oLBMbDZquU

    • We'll have estimated frames data with our new website revamp, which is a big work in progress. Definitely a valid selling point!

      • Thanks for getting back to me. It's more so for those of us who want a cheaper PC that's still capable of providing some quality output like 1440 etc

  • +1

    Hi Luke,
    Any updates/shipping timelines on the i5 12400F RTX 3080 deals ordered a couple of weeks ago?

    • +1

      They're close. We're working through the deals before that with 3080 now following a bit of a delay thanks to our good mates at Toll, so they will be next. Thanks for everyone's patience.

  • +2

    Have you guys considered adding air cooler options to builds? I don’t think some of the R5 i5 builds warrant a big AIO and the stock air coolers are normally rated pretty poorly.

    • +1 to this.

    • +1

      We've tried perpendicular air coolers previously but experienced a very high DOA rate in transit despite internal packaging, so really haven't looked at it again. It's not something we can really trial with a live market as it caused quite a lot of problems.

      • Thanks for the reply, makes sense.

  • I'm tossing up between techfast and the current dell xps deal.

    The Dell has dream specs including 32gb ddr5, Rtx3080 and i9-12900k with 1tb nvme ssd.
    Cons with Dell are the possible build quality and cooling?
    All this for $3k

    Are the dell computers really that bad??

    @luketechfast if you can come close to matching that deal I would buy

    • You can get much better thermal performance and upgradability with DIY or Techfast prebuild.

      For example, if you want to upgrade or replace your power supply or motherboard. You can easily find replacement on market but Dell is using custom size PSU and motherboard to stop you from getting parts other than Dell.

    • Watch Gamer Nexus regards to Dell. Yes, they are that bad.

    • Check out YouTube reviews or breakdowns of the machine or a similar one if there are any.
      Like it was mentioned they often use proprietary parts that can stop you upgrading or swapping parts in future and possibly bottleneck performance and i9 is a beast and you want to make sure the mobo has good VRMs and can handle it.

    • That's why I stick with TF, they are truly amazing !!! And thumbs up also to Auspost this time, I ordered my prebuilt on last Friday last evening, then Monday got Luke came back answering all my questions, confirming parts they gonna used, then Tuesday already shipped, Wednesday arrived VIC (funny still take a stopover there), and today early morning arrived Sydney and my boy just pinged me both GPU & PC delivered in super tough boxes safe & sound !!!

      Even though TF not using the top of the range parts, compare to Dell's proprietary junk parts, plus Dell's shipping time can be hit and miss

  • Part2 is even more shocking for AW R13 review, $5k is 500% a joke …
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnvxSkqJ8ic

  • Hey Luke, can you explain why these builds all feature the MAG case? It's honestly the big thing putting me off most of the deals offered. Way too gamery on its front face. Can any alternative cases be requested on purchase? Cheers!

  • Hey Luke, i bought a i5 12400F RTX 3080 last Friday and just wondering how long would it take to arrive. i live in Melbourne.

    just i haven't got an email or a tracking number, so i am a bit unsure. all i have is the bank transaction details and i paid $2236.92 on 13th May.

    cheers
