I can't believe it. (like I really need any more hardware)

So I was playing around in ebay. I saw a 5950x NEW but not in the box, for $533 OBO. I offered $490, figuring no way, but he accepted ! So my 7th 16 core/32T AM4. Well, I will have a 3900x for sale as soon as it comes. PM me an offer if interested. I can't ship until this one is in, about 12 days or less.

O.k. Mark! I'll offer $491 shipped for the 5950x! ;) No hurry on the shipping as long as it is in April ;)

That is a good deal currently for a 5950x!!! They are performers and great replacements, especially for any zen1 or zen1+!!! I hope the x3 series motherboard bios keep coming out.

Please make sure the 5950x is fully functional and has a relatively flat IHS. Send me the 3d map of the heat spreader as that is needed before I can commit :cool:

Good thing they are coming down in price some as at $580+ for new, I think they are still a bit over priced for most uses. Still really good for D.C. but it is a pico,pico, micro market...

It is sounding like the Zen4 might be out in August and I tend to mostly shut down end of May.... for D.C. anyway.

Make me an offer in PM
I wish I could... all my money this month is allocated for bills... and it's killing me that I can't get new toys.

Mining's sort of in the slumps too. I'll let you know when I have $260 saved from mining. If you've still got it in a couple of weeks, we might have a deal.

Well if you really don't want/need that 5950X, I know someone who does "need" it to replace their 3900X that is their only really productive computer... ;)

By the way, my avatar is a picture of my grandson about two years ago or so. My ugly outdated picture had to go from 2008.

By the way, I have all my naples 32/64 core boxes, and my 32 core TR4 2990wx's off line, as these put out the same in 16 cores and half the power usage. It will be 68 Wed here, and 78 on Thursday !

You interested in selling those naples or TR4 setups?
Actually, possibly, except the ECC memory on the naples. I can use it on Rome/Milan. PM me an offer. 1 7551 32 core. 1 7401 24 core. 1 dual 7601 2 x 32 core. The 2990wx's I can let the memory go. The naples motherboards are like $500-$600 alone. The CPUs are cheap, like $300 except the 7601s are like 5 or 600.

If they're still available after I get my GPU build done I'll hit you up for one or more of them. Right now I need to buy a bunch of GPUs for my 8x GPU setup on my 7551P box.

Got some mixed-brand RX 6600 and two RX 6600 XT cards. Interested? I seem to have awful luck getting them to mine for an extended time. They're fairly new, bought most in Dec. Very power-efficient, though.
