They look to be about 2-3x what that amount of DDR4-3200 should cost. What am I missing?I personally don't need 32GB DIMMs so I was considering going with a pair of these:
It looks like 3600 CAS16 is a better performer than 3200 CAS14, but not even all the different sites' tests of Ryzen 3xxx for memory performance come to the same conclusions.Are you comparing the Corsair to G.Skill or Geil RAM? What do you recommend that is comparable at 2 x 16GB DDR-3200 CAS 14 or better?
I wouldn't have any concerns myself. They have two different CAS16 options (16-16-16-36 & 16-19-19-39). I don't know which CAS16 flavor is representative of what was used in those articles.This might be the cheapest I've seen for a 3600C16 in 2 x 16GB for $160:
Not sure how comfortable I am with gskill for stability.
Would you consider anything less?
I would rarely replace an M.2 SSD so I'm not worried. I have an existing Samsung 970 EVO that I never did anything with from last year that will go in there. All three M.2 slots are located under the metal shroud per the docs.Would you consider anything less?
I don't understand where the M.2 SSDs are located? Are they hidden under the board? It seems that a lot of breakdown/reassembly would be needed every time they are swapped.
I don't think you'll be able to buy it online though, so your plan is to head to the store ASAP after getting the alert?I have a partially working Python script to poll my local Microcenter for the 3950X and alert me when it comes in stock. Probably a little overkill but it is fun to write.
I'm pretty sure it will be different. High demand items aren't available for purchase online even if they're in stock in store. Like right now for me the 3900X is in stock in my local store, but I can't buy it online. The Rpi 4 was that way too when it first came out.In the past I have been able to buy my parts and then do their in store pickup. I don't know if this cpu would be any different.
Are you using nowinstock.net?Not surprising that I got an alert Newegg has the 3950X in stock...they want $900 for it. lol Good for them for trying but hell no.
I don't think they do.The Nowinstock didn't have one for Microcenter which is why I wrote my own. Maybe they have one now.
