Desktop PC: Siren Vortex Ryzen 5700X CPU, RTX 3080 10GB GPU, 16GB RAM, 1TB M.2 SSD $2199 + Shipping ($0 VIC Pickup) @ BPC Tech


Siren Vortex SnowMacho GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming PC

Seems like a half decent deal. Saving a couple of hundred off the retail cost of the components. Not bad seeing you don't have to source components and build.

Below is a combination of PCPartPicker and BPC pricing.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5700X 3.4 GHz 8-Core Processor ($425.00 @ BPC Technology)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MASTERLIQUID ML120L RGB V2 65.59 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($75.00 @ Austin Computers)
Motherboard: ASRock B550 PG Riptide AM4 ATX Motherboard ($159.00 @ BPC Technology)
Memory: ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D41 RGB 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz Tungsten Grey ($129.00 @ BPC Technology)
Storage: Kingston NV1 1TB PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 2280 SSD ($109.00 @ BPC Technology)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 10GB LHR 10 GB XC3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card ($1299.00 @ BPC Technology)
Case: Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Airflow ATX Mid Tower Case ($128.50 @ Amazon Australia)
Power Supply: MSI MPG A-GF 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($109.00 @ BPC Technology)
Total: $2433.50
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Below is a like list with a few replaced items for similar pricing e.g. RAM and MB
PCPartPicker Part List: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/kWfVW4

Personal opinion (for comparison): This seems to beat the TechFast deal for $2144, as this includes a larger SSD (1tb vs 500gb), Liquid Cooler and 850w PSU. If you added these components to the TechFast deal with discount, you would be looking at $2,371.00. You could double the RAM and add the WiFi card to the BPC deal and come to $2,367.00. I'd probably chuck the extra drive (3TB) in for $95 for the extra storage.

    I wouldn't make my 3080 live in that case.

    • +10

      its got a mesh front so its not that bad

    • +6

      That's caseist!

    • +7

      GN saying the cooling is 'okay' means its definitely good enough.

      • +2

        Sorry but what's GN?

      Nothing wrong with the case lol - a 3080 will survive just fine.

  • Sorry what is the wifi card?

    • +2

      They haven't specified which card would be added. I would suggest it would be something like this or this model used in other builds https://www.bpctech.com.au/product/ax200-ngwg-dtk-intel-dual…
      But best to check with them.

      • Thanks, actually building my own, just wanted to check what was normally offered in prebuilds.

    • +1

      The motherboard doesn't seem to include a WiFi. Spend an extra $50-ish and get something like this or a cheap USB one will do the job.

      • +2

        Is it still better and stable to use PCIe wifi card than a usb little dongle?

        • +1

          I've personally never been a big fan of the dongles, far too many drop outs / inconsistent connection etc. For a fraction more get a pcie card. Better even to upgrade to a mesh wifi and ethernet to a node on it, or just run ethernet direct to modem.

          Just my two cents.

          • @teereb: Thx! Can't do that as modem is all the way upstairs, wifi the only way this will work.

            • +1

              @kaikor: Yeah ok! Pci e card over a dongle any day.

              However if you can spare ~$200+ go get yourself a wifi mesh system, I haven't looked back for the last 4 / 5ish years. Streaming 4k content lag free through the house is nice.

              • @teereb: best yet, wire up your house with cat 7 hehe

                • @Teebytok: Just 2 years ago I pre-wired my 2 storey home before plaster. High quality 2x Cat6 to every room. Never terminated them, and I still don’t know if I ever will. But I knew I’d heavily regret if I didn’t. Cables stomp wireless in my extensive & troublesome history… but then high quality mesh wifi came along.

            • @kaikor: That’s what they suggested. Have a look into mesh wifi.

              • @Ulysses31: Thx but no need to worry about this anymore, as TF is so nice when I optioned for Gigabyte mobo instead of Biostar, it comes with WIFI already which wasn't mention on the order page, so all good now!

  • +1

    Great all around CPU for gaming and production.

  • Wow, prices are dropping big time

  • +3

    I'd never buy these pre builts just because I'm not given a guarantee on what gpu I'll get. Assure me I'm getting a rog strix card for example and I'll buy it in a heartbeat. Having the most important and expensive part of the build being unknown is completely unacceptable to me.

    • +8

      They clearly state it's an EVGA XC3?

      If they send you something else, then you send it back?

      • +7

        "GeForce RTX 3080 LHR Video Card Models may vary" - literally right from the link that's posted. Sending expensive parts back and forth is extremely inconvenient.

        • +3

          See now I've realised I'm bad and I'm perpetuating wrong information and need to get it fixed ¬¬ apologies for that.

          You're entirely right here. A fairly high end XC3 vs whatever random gpu they have lying around can easily be $200 different, which makes this a much more eh deal.

          • +2

            @incipient: Thank you. I'm not sure why I'm getting downvoted so much.

  • Nice config and good price

  • +6

    Ok let’s break this deal down:

    5700x w/ 8c 16t @3.4ghz decent cpu for gaming and is right on par with next gen consoles so will be future proof for gaming for the next 4 years

    For the price 16gb of ram is ok, they are 8gb modules, and at a standard 3200mhz. $130 is a little high I have seen 2x8 for $80 but leaving that aside you can upgrade to 2x ram for $129

    The 3080 yes it is the older one as in it has 10gb of vram not 12gb, it also is lhr which doesn’t matter cos crypto mining is not profitable anyways. I have a 3080, will play most fps games 240 fps+ at high to ultra settings, ray tracing will run most games at 60fps.

    The ssd is gen 3 so half the transfer rate of gen 4 and a quarter of gen 5. That is ok though, you will only really see a difference between different generations of ssd when it comes to game updates and installs as well as loading screen times.

    850 watt power supply is overkill to say the least but does allow for good upgradability in the future an will allow for overclocking

    I wouldn’t overclock though as it only has 120mm aio cooler, most pc’s with a high number of cpu cores will have 240mm or 360mm aio cooling, I’m no cooling expert so I wouldn’t know, I’m sure 120mm is fine as long as you don’t plan on using the cpu for resource intensive programs.

    All in all this is a decent gaming rig capable of giving you a competitive advantage over other gamers. As it has a 3080 which mind you months ago costed nearly the same as this pc.

  • I'd like to see this without liquid cooling, not a 'fan'..

    • -5

      So funny, nah but liquid cooling is a must in a gaming rig, unless you want the room the pc is stored in to be an oven.

      • +1

        Doesn't work like that.

      • +4

        Fan vs liquid, the heat from the GPU is still dumped into the room. All it will do is take the heat outside of the case more efficiently.

  • Say whatever you want but that price is almost what a card like that used to cost few month ago. I think it's a good deal even if in the end you want to swap some of the parts.

  • +1

    I tried to upgrade the Ram, but it shows Add 3TB hdd
    With HDD Upgrade, it shows add wifi card
    With Wifi Upgrade, it shows add WIndows 10 home

    Does anyone have the same issue?

    • +1

      yes, same issue… the config for each line item seems to be a transposition error.. (i.e. each label is one line too low for the content…

  • why buy this if it cant use DDR5 ram? its already outdated might as well wait right?

    • +2

      Maybe in 2 to 3 years.. right now ddr5 is clocked low with high case latency and is expensive .. just like when ddr4 came out at 2133Mhz but is now at over 4000mhz.

    If you buy from BPC, pickup only. If you can not pick up, do not order from them.

    I ordered "Samsung 980 Pro 1TB with HeatSink" from them on 17th April 2022, and order shipped on 20th April 2022, and then no update at all from both BPC and Aramex, where about was my parcel been, until 5th May 2022. Emailing, and calling them no result. Now, on 5th May 2022, Aramex Tracking said, "Return to Sender", so they unable to complete the delivery, and return to BPC, but BPC still don't want to refund it to me until they receive the parcel back, even though clearly in the tracking Aramex said they return it to Sender, I'm not stealing it.

    This is very bad service, very disappointed with both BPC and Aramex, and will not likely shop at BPC anymore.

    • +3

      Aramex is so SH*T

      • Yes, but I'm disappointed at BPC as well, for unwilling to refund me now, they want to wait for the parcel return by Aramex. How long it going to take again? Another 1-2 months before I see my refund? What happen if the parcel lost? Aramex Tracking clearly said, "Return to Sender", and BPC sales person I talk to clearly can see it too.

        • +2

          I have had similar , but with only a order for $100 . I ended up contacting afterpay to get them involved. i wouldnt use aramex if i had a choice.

          • @barginhunter11: Should I try to dispute the transaction with my credit card today, or wait for it?

      • +2

        I've never had worse courier experience than when I had to deal with FastWay (Aramex's predecessor)

        • Here I was thinking, "I've never had to deal with Aramex", but oh yeah, bloody FastWay…

    • +2

      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 !!!

      To all that going to order from anywhere online, if it is Arsemax. DONT DO IT, even if you get the cheapest deal of this universe, not worth to lose sleep & most important your cash.

      Don't get me wrong, I checked and love a few prebuilts from BPC and was so ready to commit buying but realise anything under $1500 will only via Arsemax, sorry no way and have to go with TF and never regret with my decision. All up only takes 4 days to build and delivered from Adelaide to Sydney, and this is absolutely incredible, bet TF must have got Thanos gauntlet and just snap !!!

    • Last time one of these deals popped up another user mentioned they don't ship with Aramex for expensive orders, I called them and spoke with a rep to check who confirmed that on orders this size they use a different courier.

      Just something to consider.

      • My Order was recently for $200 "Samsung 980 Pro 1TB with HeatSink", and it still shipped with Aramex T_T

        • +2

          Because it’s not an expensive order.

    • I purchased this build yesterday after 5PM and chose Pick up since I'm in Melbourne anyway.
      Got an email saying the build is ready to be picked up today 3:30PM.

      I agree about Aramex being meh. Purchased something from Ebay and the parcel was sent through Aramex, It took forever to arrive and tracking didn't work very well.
      But I think that's not something wrong on BPC's side, it's on Aramex.
      They also offer delivery by AusPost for extra delivery cost, which I think people should definitely take.

      About them not wanting to refund before they receive the parcel, I thought that's how every store works?
      I requested a refund from Amazon before and they also would only process my refund after they get the item back.

      Not saying that BPC is great or anything, since this is my first time purchasing anything from them.
      But my experience has been amazing. The sales team is fast with their response and very helpful.

      • May I ask what GPU you got in your build?

      • When BPC know Aramex is a problem, and choose to keep supporting them… they’re part of the problem.

  • +2

    I just emailed and checked which GPU they are using - rep confirmed that they are using the EVGA card listed currently.
