    Hello, the processor is at stock 3.7GHz with the standard 4.7GHz turbo.

    It is the K model though so it is possible to overclock if that’s is of interest.

    Really appreciate the offer, I think thats probably a little lower than I was looking for. I would be happy to drop the price a little for a trusted buyer/seller like yourself, but would be looking for nearer to the asking price. Is £1700 your maximum?

    Worth pointing out I would potentially be open to trades too, to fill the value gap if of use.

    Morning ,thanks for the reply .
    Yes im afraid the £1700 is my maximum ,I totally understand that its a decent bit lower than your asking ,its a hell of a bit of kit .
    Think its my usual ,I see it and think Yeah why not :/

    Ive only got a 144p screen so complete overkill .
    As for trades ,I cant really think of anything at the mo .

    I believe so, I've just posted the spec straight from the PC Specialist order. More than happy to open up the PC to confirm.

    Cheers, yeah house upgrades don't come cheap! :D

    That could be quite interesting. Could you give me the full spec? What would you value it at?

    Thanks,

    Hi Josh, it is a little ITX gaming machine I built a while back. Perfectly fine, I just fancied something with a bit more oomph.

    I got the 1070 off these forums, it is a zotac model. I don't really know what I would price it at, its nicely made. Uses a cougar 450 case (the cheap ncase m1 copy case) it has a 500W corsair modular ATX psu.

    Hello yannic,

    I've been trying to have a look at comparators on this site to gauge value and I think I'd be looking for around £1450 on top or thereabouts.

    Does that suit you?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Yeah, happy with a trade, as I won't feel quite as bad if I don't use it as much if it's not quite as high a spec!

    Sounds interesting what would your offer be for a trade?

    Thanks - I'd probably be looking for about £1200 plus yours as a trade having done a little bit of research. Also just to check is it the red or black version of the case?

    Are you willing to split?

    I'm looking for a similar spec machine, this is a little higher, so may be out of reach.

    Looking to upgrade from a 6600k, z170, 8GB DDR4 3000mhz, GTX 1080.

    Also based in Hartlepool so a deal can be easily sorted :)

    [edit] NZXT H500i case

    Cool. Just let me know.

    I'm not really looking to split, but would happily trade with cash on top. :)

    OK, no problem.. so my full spec list:

    NZXT H500i Case
    Asus Z170-E ATX Motherboard
    Intel Core i5 6600k
    Corsair H80i GT Liquid CPU Cooler
    Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000Mhz (2x4GB)
    Thermaltake TR2 Challenger 700w
    Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming
    250GB Samsung EVO SSD
    1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD

    It only has one of those VLK cheapo Windows licences... if we came to an arrangement I'd be happy for you to keep yours?

    It's a fairly capable machine, I have it hooked up to a 4K TV playing at 1440p mainly (have tried higher) and it never skips a beat.

    I'll try to price this up and update the thread.

    I'm not very good at this but think I've priced it at around £800 max? In that case, I'll withdraw my offer as the cash outlay is more than I'd want to put down at the moment.

    Thanks again for the consideration - really appreciate the offer. I think I'm minded to decline for the time being; I'm keen to hold for the full value if I can. Do keep me in mind though if you don't find what you are looking for elsewhere!
