Just snagged--yesterday--a 3900X from Amazon for $419--but that was just part of it--the main clincher was the five-months, same as cash, no interest deal Amazon was offering! Even when you just sort-of want something, maybe--that kind of temptation is too much to resist. (Unfortunately, it appears that Amazon cancelled the 5-months SAC payment option the day after I ordered! I had no idea how close to the wire my order was--I had seen the deal offered some weeks ago but talked myself out of it then.) I'm in awe of this thing--hitting 4.67GHz single core boost on four cores--a fifth and sixth core boost to ~4.4GHz. But really, the show stopper is that this thing (12c/24t) doubled my 3600X's (6c/12t) performance in every single mutlithreaded app and benchmark I own--and sometimes it runs better than a linear 2x performance difference! The scaling is phenomenal. I want to also state that the included Wraith Prism cooler is an order of magnitude better than the Wraith Spire I had with the 3600X--that thing was a bit on the noisy side. This Prism I'm running at 80% normally and it isn't even audible with the side cover off! I had planned on keeping the 3600X going until later this year to see what Zen3 looks like, but I realized that if I buy one I probably won't until 2021, so I'll stick with this one for at least a year.
