Mindfactory is doing it again – and knocking out hardware at the best price. The current Damn deals focus on processors from AMD such as the Ryzen 7 5800XD. If you want to buy a CPU, there are of course other options available. Not only the Ryzen 5000 series is available with great discounts, but also one or the other Intel CPU. Mindfactory also offers best prices in the mainboard area, i.e. hardware that was not available cheaper at the time the article was created. If in doubt, you can check everything in the price comparison, but you should check again afterwards the action page because Mindfactory only makes the discounts available in this way. Geizhals, but also the product page, which is called up directly, initially show you other prices. The SSD, CPU cooler, keyboard and gaming monitor categories are also part of the current campaign. As always, the offers are only valid for a short time – the deals expire on Sunday. In addition, the hardware that you can buy at the top price has been limited. Worst case scenario, procrastinating will cost you money.
The AMD CPUs of the Ryzen 5000 series clearly dominate the current Damn deals. Many will now ask themselves why they should buy such a CPU. After all, AMD has long since had successors with Ryzen 7000. There, the motherboard and memory are expensive because of DDR5. Intel isn’t a bad alternative with its Raptor Lake processors, because these can also be combined with inexpensive DDR4 RAM. Nevertheless, as the sales figures regularly show, many still use an older Ryzen CPU. It is probably because the AM4 platform was up to date for a long time and so supposedly old platforms with Ryzen 2000 and much more. can be upgraded inexpensively. In any case, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D dominates again current CPU searches. With the competition, however, you pay more than the 319 euros called by Mindfactory. An older CPU is also in second place with the Ryzen 7 5700X – it is also available at the best price as part of the Damn deals. Since Mindfactory and AMD also give you Company of Heroes 3 when you buy it, you can save even more than the purchase price. In addition to the AMD CPUs, the Damn deals include the Intel Core i5-13400 – at the time the article was created, it also changed hands at the best price.
If you are looking for a new substructure or partner for your CPU, you can also buy a mainboard or a CPU cooler as part of the Damn deals. With the MSI Tomahawk WIFI Intel Z690, Gigabyte B660 Gaming X and Gigabyte B660M DS3H, a current Intel system with socket 1700 can be put together inexpensively, since inexpensive DDR4 memory fits into the slots in all three cases. If you want to run a Ryzen from the Ryzen 5000 series, which is still in demand, the MSI B550-A Pro AMD B550 is an option. Regardless of which of the above motherboards you choose: Outside of the Damn deals, higher prices apply. On the CPU cooler side, the Be Quiet! Pure Rock 2 FX catches the eye. This PWM tower cooler even uses ARGB lighting, which was long unusual for the German manufacturer Be Quiet!. According to the manufacturer, it keeps CPUs with a TDP of up to 150 watts at the right temperature and supports sockets 1150, 1151, 1155, 1200, 1700, 2011, 2011-3, 2066, AM4 and AM5. In contrast to a mainboard, you are not tied to a single CPU manufacturer, but should still be able to enjoy your CPU cooler even if you change platforms.
Aside from the CPU, mainboard and CPU cooler, Mindfactory also exhibited gaming monitors as part of the Damn deals. The 31.5-inch MSI Optix MAG321QRDE should be particularly interesting. The gaming monitor offers 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, an IPS panel, 2x HDMI 2.0b and 165 Hz for fps spoiled gamers. Once again, it changes hands at the best price. The SSDs that Mindfactory offers come from less well-known manufacturers. However, the 2 TB Mega Fastro MS200 M.2 with PCIe 3.0 x4 and 3D NAND TLC memory can also be bought for a slim 99.90 euros. Keyboards like the “SilentiumPC Keyboard SPC Gear GK650K Brown RGB Pudding Edition USB DE” are also relatively unknown, but stocks here are running out quickly, which is probably due to the low prices compared to Razer, Logitech and Co. In fact, the mechanical keyboard with switches of the “Omnis Kailh Brown” type and RGB lighting only costs 39.90 euros – it’s a third more regularly. Those who prefer “Blue” switches will also find a suitable offer at Mindfactory. It is not possible to generalize which switch type is “better”. “Brown” is considered particularly popular because it is also good for typing. But everyone feels that differently.

With the launch of the first Ryzen CPUs in 2017, AMD promised to keep the platform up to date. With the launch of Ryzen 5000, AMD initially seemed to break its word, because initially only mainboards with a 500 “chipset” (I/O hub) supported the new processors. However, it wasn’t long before BIOS updates appeared for many mainboards with B450 and X470 chipsets to accommodate new processors. Early last year, motherboard manufacturers did even some of their X370 mainboards fit for new Ryzen processors. With a platform that has grown over the years, there is of course a huge user base for which an upgrade to Ryzen 5000 is an option. If you want to buy such a CPU, you should preferably use the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Why? Because he marked the gaming spearhead last year. Thanks to the mounted 3D V-Cache, which triples the L3 cache without further ado, it can still show off in games today. It even does well against Intel’s Core i 13000 and AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series. If you are unsure whether your AM4 mainboard can still handle a CPU upgrade, the mainboard manufacturer is of course the best place to go. Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Asrock and Co. usually have support websites for their products. There you will find current drivers and BIOS updates.
If Mindfactory’s Damn deals didn’t include the right offer for you, such as a Ryzen CPU, that might be the case with other sales. There are loads of top offers in our Daily Deals, which are updated daily: graphics cards, motherboards, gaming monitors, gaming mice, gaming chairs, televisions, gaming highlights and many other products for PC, PS5, Xbox and Nintendo gamers Amazon, Media Markt and Co. often at greatly reduced prices.
