    This should do me fine for the next few years. I’ve been champing at the bit to build a RyZen rig.

    Well, with ryzen 3900x in very low quantities and prices near 800 euro I'm curious if the price will skyrocket immediately after launch and if the availability will be i9900k like when it launched...

    I’d expect the same, but with 8 extra cores it will still be a much better buy.

    You're forgetting the very important VAT plus exchange rates :)

    Just be aware that the 3900X can get hot as the sun in artificial stress tests even with relatively low voltage, and the BIOSes are janky as all hell right now. So I assume the 3950X will also hit a thermal wall, at least on air. I'm using the AM4 edition Noctua NH-D15 with their own thermal compound. Cinebench R15, which is not artificial, absolutely murders my CPU, by like 15C more than AIDA 64's stress test. I use that worst case scenario as a sign to keep my OC low (4325MHz @ 1.39V and even that can go above 90C in R15). Comparing it to the 4770K I came from, it's a real pain in the ass to configure, at least with an MSI BIOS, so be prepared.

    Thanks for that info. I was going to watercool it or I may end up bringing one of my phase units out of retirement if the vapour chamber fits the RyZen CPU.

    I would rather 3900X. Time is diminishing my interest. And there was a lot of time since release.

    Don't buy from scalpers. If the quantities are low, you can only wait. Only a fool would pay 800 euros for a ~500-540 euros product. It's shameful AMD can't produce nearly enough of them, but it doesn't mean the real value of an ordinary CPU would suddenly skyrocket. The value is it what it is based on the specs. It's a mass produced item, not a unique work of art.

    I do not think this is an overclock cpu at all.
    If you are doing 12 cores at 4.3 yes hot as the sun.

    Well with around 20% average above 750$ goes around 950$, so it is logical depending at each country tax. My guess is from 850 up to 1000€.

    I'm biting at this CPU, hopefully for RRP if timed well preorder from good retailer. High yield Ryzen manufacturing seems to be helping and make lots of server chips, bit that is leaving us desktop users a little neglected. However, cannot wait to get my hands on this puppy...unless they bring out an even better threadripper bargain!

    I hope that it will put a pressure on 3900X prices (maybe with increased availability since I guess that defective 3950X cores will become 3900X cpu's) - this is the one I want but I can't pay that obscene amount of money and expect 3 weeks for it with no guarantee.

    No, requirements are different.
    For 3900X, you need 2 chiplets which can reach high enough clock, but have 2 worthless cores each.

    For 3950X, you need 2 well clocking chiplets with all cores working. For practical reasons 3950X shares chiplets with 3800X.

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn This is just a placeholder. I am from Switzerland and digitec.ch listed the 3950x for 999 Chf with a 30.09 release date since early July...
