$109.99

ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F ATX mobo makes a nice match-up with that CPU. Just bought the pair. Thanks!

Edit: And this GSKill RGB DDR4-3600 RAM ("for AMD"). $114.99

Edit: To clarify, the top-most link is to the ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F ATX mobo,, and the promo code directly below it, makes it $109.99. The second link is a $114.99 16GB kit (2x8GB) of GSKill Trident-Z RGB RAM, DDR4-3600 spec, and it specifically mentions "for AMD" in the product title, which I think is a good sign. The Intel variant is like $154 in the current "Cool Moms" sale section.

Seemed like good matches for @daveybrat 's Ryzen 7 2700 CPU deal.

I think the price difference between the 2700 and the 2700X has never been larger. I wonder if they are ever going to knock the 2700X's price down some?

This is a great price for the 2700.

Have people been able to overclock the 2700 to 2700x clocks with the default cooler or should one spend the extra money on a 2700x?

Pretty sure that AMD is binning these, so if you want the higher clocks, and XFR2/PBO, then you'll want the "X" chip.

I'm just happy to finally get 8C/16T @ 4.x Ghz, at somewhere between 65W-95W.
