I took the 5th and the 6th off. I'm either going to play the refreshing game or drive to Microcenter early lol
Anyone know if we can order Ryzen 3 online at Microcenter for store pickup? I'd hate to drive all the way down only to discover they were sold out.

I might be late to the party (apologies in advance)...I know in other threads comments were made about the new Ryzen pricing and AMD dropping the cooler as well.
Just checking out Microcenter's pics and it shows just a processor for the 5800X and 5900X but it shows a Wraith with the 5600X. I checked the box pick and it says 5000 series CPU and Wraith cooling included.

LOL! That make's more sense. Glad I didn't make a snarky comment about being able to post on AT but not browse to Microcenter :p

Thanks for sharing, I hadn't seen that. Looks like the earlier reports of higher IF speeds were probably unfounded rumors then.
I don't know 3800 was not a given on Zen 2. Still depends on which board, memory and cpu. Some setups will hit it with ease and others won't.

I expect the same for Zen 3 some will hit 4000 and others won't.

I see a lot of people going 4x8GB. In the past I'd always thought you were more likely to get a max memory overclock with one DIMM per channel rather than two. Is that not the case anymore?
What everyone has posted so far is spot on.

I will also be looking at going up to 4x8 with my setup, but I want to see how things will work with Zen 3.

I may just overclock my B-die sticks to see if I can hit 4000 at 2x8. Then review performance and timings. It its shown on my board that I can hit 2000 IF with Memory at 4000 and there is a big improvement, I may look at going with DDR4 4000 sticks. or May just get 4x8 with my current B Die and see how far I can push them.

I'm going to hold on memory until some reviews flesh it out. The 3600 b-die sticks in my Threadripper build should be sufficient. I want to see if the 4000 kits really help and if they need to be lower CL stock, if 3600 can be overclocked easily or if other combinations are better.

Definitely my plan 100%. I've done that for darn near everything I have ever purchased there.

I am cautiously optimistic there will be way more stock of these CPUs than there is for the GPU stuff simply due to packaging efficiency for importing and because it is a distilled product that doesn't require the same amount of integration and lead time GPUs take (in my estimation).

I'm unsure regarding memory choice. Pairing with 5900x / mobo undecided yet.

Looking at either
  • Trident Z RGB Series 32GB DDR4 3600MHz CL17 Dual Channel Kit (2x 16GB) or
  • Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB DDR4 3600MHz CL18 Dual Channel Kit (2 x 16GB)
  • Trident Z RGB Series 32GB DDR4 3600 CL19 Quad Channel Kit (4x 8GB)
So 4 sticks but slower or 2 sticks and a little faster. What would you go with?
Thanks

If all of these have 4 ranks the lower latency ones should be better, but the difference won't be big

I'm in for a 5950x, and plan to grab a C8 Dark Hero when they become available. I'm hoping they launch tomorrow with Zen 3 but the lack of product pages for either is a bit of a concern.

I'll be pairing it with a 2x16gb kit of 3200cl14 b die I have in the closet.

I wonder if keeping product pages down is one measure they are taking to limit bot/scalper action? Only putting up the product pages at launch time would make it harder to plan and have bots configured in advance.

It certainly helps a little bit but as the product pages are often the same over the entire website, bots probably don't need that much tuning after the actual page goes live.

I think it helps a lot. Scalpers have to be up at 6AM PST/9AM EST to locate and give the bots the URL/product ID once the pages go live. At that point it's scalpers vs. buyers instead of bots primed hours/days in advance to buy the microsecond that the product is listed in stock.

Every little thing that can be done to inconvenience scalpers will make them that much less interested.

Looking forward to my second build since 2011. Upgrading from a 3770k 2x6TB enterprise drives raid 10 and 4 hard drives in a uATX case to:

5950x
6x10TB Seagate Exos (already done with old build last week, just moving over)
2x2TB Seagate Firecuda SSDs or Samsung 980s,
AIO 3x120 Cooler
1070 GFX card
128GB Ram.
Asus Crosshair VIII Hero Mobo
Fractal Define 7
I would prefer another uATX build, but the x570 choice is terrible, and no cases to be found for the drive count.

For fun here are the current Raid 10 speeds with the new 10TB Exos drives on a cheap Highpoint 2720 raid card from 10 years ago in a PCIE 2x8 config

Looks like Im not going to get a chance to drive to Microcenter. Woke up with a cold. Throat is sore as hell. Going to play the refreshing game this sucks.
