Just ordered my second 3900x from Best Buy for $500; only place not scalping right now.

Was going to hold out for the 3950x; but 12 core is enough for now and may look at upgrading when the next gen Ryzens come out (which I now have a $250 down payment for)

QUICK!!! Go to Best Buy now!!!
I actually am waiting on the 3950x, just wanted to see availability. I think the shortage is over. Almost everyone has them, only some are over MSRP, but that could change, now that they are widely available.

Ahh okay. Hopefully the 3950x won't have these issues.

I'd suggest anybody that's contemplating purchasing the 3950x to go thru the procrastination phase now. I'm sure they'll be available from many retailers, but it's a who knows on the pent up demand vs the initial supply. Best to get the pass or commit done before they're available at your retailer of choice.

No procrastination here..
I have been sitting on $800 since launch day of x570 just waiting in my account to go to who ever gets the 3950x in stock first!!
Cant say I haven't been tempted a few times to just snag up a 3900x and actually had plenty of times to do so and had them in my cart multiple times but every time this happened I came to my senses and pushed my self to wait it out for the 3950x monster.
I have never wanted a CPU so badly :(

If it helps you thru the troubled times we can make you the official team leader of the pent up demand guys/gals.

Just be prepared to have no remorse when the leaks of Zen3 start appearing. IPC + MHz might be around 20% improvement. The longer these 16C products take to appear the worse it'll be.
Yeah, I totally understand that but I am seriously hoping that first gen Zen3 will be backwards compatible with x570 and or AM4 platform for future upgrades.
If not, no biggie I can always buy up the next best and newest thing a year or so down the line.

Right now though I just want me some 3950x goodness which should tide me and many others over pretty well for some time to come.
Had me a 2950x which was pretty awesome in its own rights so I am expecting the 3950x to blow my socks off.

Pretty exciting times we live in right now with all the technology advancement we are getting to see in our life time...

I remember this one time, back in August, when I went in to order a 3900X for $499.99 at Best Buy to be shipped to me and used a 10% Birthday Coupon code and a 10% Best Buy Visa Rewards redemption code - and they stacked.

Good times... :D

Yeah... those were the days... I remember back in early September when I tried to order a 3900X, needed a note from Mark written on the back of a stack of 20s.
