    Thats ah gooda deal

  • +1 vote

    Christ, great price. Cheaper than any 3700x has been.

    •  

      good deal, tempted but I think I will keep the 3700x I just ordered for the lower TDP.

  • +57 votes

    I will be waiting for the 4000 series and also pretend I didn't see this deal.

    •  

      Me too

      •  

        It is better to wait for the 4000 series and wait for the price to drop for the r5 3600?

        •  

          Depends. The demand for the 3600 is pretty high since they will clean up stock for the 3600xt. I would wait anyway since the if something goes wrong the 3300x is very capable and cheap unless you need more cores. So I would wait if possible.

      Its not gone, you just have to use the 'trick' i mentioned to add to cart. By default it only lets you add Amazon AU or US stock.

      •  

        Got it works now thanks

      •  

        It won't deliver to any address for me using the "trick".

    •  

      Don't want to disappoint anyone but what is the chance this glitch will get cancelled? Other deals like this have been honoured?

      •  

        In it to win it :)

        I dont see why it shouldnt, considering its allowed and comes up when you search for the product the first time.

    $14.39 delivery for me (NSW metro area)


    Nice method discovery OP!
    Using the same method, I got the Ryzen 3600 quoted at $244.68 before delivery.

    Don't forget cashback, should work fine as it goes through Amazon AU :)

    Was looking at the 3600.. ended up with a 3800X!

    Thanks OP!!

  •  

    Great find. Thanks. Used cashback aswell. Delivery was $15.81 for Vic Metro.

    Just bought a 3700x last week for $50 more than this, now to return it.

    •  

      I bought a 3700x 2 weeks back as well from Amazon. It's been delivered but I haven't opened it yet. Do you know if I'll be able to return this and get a refund?

      •  

        Not sure about Amazon. I purchased through Shopping Express. Returns look reasonable and I haven't opened mine either.

      • +1 vote

        Yes, Amazon is great with returns.

      •  

        Yes within 30 days

    •  

      I wonder if cashback will work for UK purchases…..

  •  

    Great work OP, purchased and used shopback also.
    Considering I am building new PC, anyone see any other components listed like this? :P

    •  

      Yeah me too. Probably gonna need a mother board and RAM

    How is the warranty when buying pc parts in amazon?

    • +2 votes

      it's a cpu , what are the odds of needing warranty

      • +1 vote

        Returned a 4790K after 4 years to warranty and got a replacement from Intel. The replacement was a better chip that needed less voltage and runs even cooler at 4.7Ghz, been using it for a couple of years without issues and switched to a silent profile on my Noctua NH-D15. These damn AMD deals right now are very tempting, but I'm going to hold for a couple of more years to get a DDR5 system, as DDR5 is expected to almost double the average speeds of DDR4.

    Did anyone notice the 3600 for $244?

    • +1 vote

      I did, but for a price cheaper than the 3700x that to me is a deal.

      Only slightly worried with the TDP and cooler. But nothing after market cooler wont fix.

      • +1 vote

        Totally agree. In terms of savings, I don't think I have ever seen the 3800 this low. The boost clocks on this should compete or be close to the upcoming ryzen 3700 xt.

        •  

          Same. TBH my last PC was 6 years ago, and was aiming to get a 3600 and then upgrade after the 4xxx comes out. But at this price, might just stick with it for few years.

    •  

      Tempting… comes up as $256.02 delivered

    •  

      Yeah I bought one at that price

  •  

    Damn all these ryzen deals are so tempting. Probabaly not the best idea to put this in a m-ITX with barely passable cooling…my 3300x is maxing out at 93 degrees running prime95 as is but ooh id love to try.

    •  

      I've got a 3700x in a velka 3. With eco mode, thermal throttling is a non issue for me. Id imagine it's better with a 3800x. Try it!

      •  

        U sold me. Purchased. Won't be hard to offload a 3300x.

    •  

      Prime 95 is useless. No real world use would even come close to those temps.

  •  

    Thanks, I bought one.

  •  

    Ordered one but having doubts. Wasn't really planning to build a new pc just yet…

    But thanks OP!

  •  

    Damn nice, I bought 3700X from Amazon $450, its on my desk… probably shouldn't bother returning for 3800X for $463 ($17 delivery Melbourne).

    •  

      3800x @ centrecom $615, @ shopping express $594. If you haven't opened it. The deal is good.

    •  

      You can return within 30 days.

    Hmm upgrade the 1600 on an x370 since not going to get support for 4000 series.. or wait for ddr5

    •  

      similar here. 1600 on an AB350M. really not sure if i should upgrade now or later, 3600 or 3800x…

    • +1 vote

      You would have to buy new ram for ddr5 and new MB for 4000 series.

      At the moment a 1600 is worth something. I think you will be better off upgrading now

      •  

        I have 32gb 3200 ddr4 running at 2133 (crap!) at the moment. dont think i would want to replace them in near future. probably update now and wait for a few more years.

    For most home users, can I assume this is overkill? My Ryzen 3600 hardly hit 50% util while I am gaming and even less when I am surfing the web

      yes

      Lol a dual core is overkill for just surfing the web

    I never understand the massive appeal of these constant cpu deals. Yes i admit it is a great price but do you guys build up new computers every few months?

      I snoozed before Covid to update my 6 year old PC. With these deals back, gives me hope to build a PC in 2020 :)

      someone neg'd you, ill + to balance .

        Same boat as you… 4790 for around 5+ years … finding it increasingly difficult to wait for next gen…

        •  

          Yep same here (4790k). Have been waiting so long, need more RAM but can't justify spending money on a DDR3 kit. :(

          Trying to stretch till the 4000 is released.

          •  

            @ThadtheChad: I'm sitting on a 4590 at the moment. It still holds up surprisingly well.
            I'm tossing up whether to wait for the 4000 series

      It's obviously not the same people buying/commenting.

      You can say that about any deals?

  •  

    Epic post, great job OP
    After unsuccessfully waiting for the 3700x to drop in price it was an easy decision to jump on this deal!

  •  

    It fascinates me that the 3800x is cheaper than the 3700x also from the UK and that the 3900X is barely any cheaper than the US. Very strange set of bargains but good none the less ;)

    • +1 vote

      Probably hasn’t sold well and they are overstocked… it was basically a forgotten cpu, 3600 if u wanted gaming, 3700x if u wanted a bit of gaming and a bit of productivity type work loads and 3900x for pure productivity… 3800x was pretty much forgotten as it had no real benefit over the above and cost vs performance ratio was not great vs the other models.

  •  

    The 3900X is around ~$672 before delivery with this "trick" as well.

    As for the 3800X and below, you may want to keep in mind the 4750G etc. coming out in a couple weeks. I note that the currents leaks for the 4000 series has the initial launch series all having GPU's? Of course integrated graphics are never spectacular, but that is something to take note of when it comes to building something like a HTPC. (I note no Plex transcode support for AMD though at the moment)

    • +1 vote

      Don't hold your breath. I doubt support for hardware encoding will be coming soon.

      It's good to note that the 4750 is coming out soon, but the price will likley be higher than 3700x rrp.

      4000 series APUs are still based on the Zen 2 architecture. Zen 3 is still expected towards the end of this year with an announcement (hopefully) in September.

    Does this work with Prime to get free shipping?

      Unfortunately it dosen't. But even with shipping fees, it's a very nice deal.

        Fair enough. Looks like I can save my virgin free Prime trial for another day!! LOL!

    Bought this but I'm not sure if I should wait out for Ryzen 4XXX. I'm coming from a R1600 and planning to get an Ampere card. Any recommendations?

    • +2 votes

      Depends what rumors you believe. If 4000 series has 8 cores on a single ccx (rather than a max of 4 for 3000 series) there will be a significant drop in the latency issues that have so far kept intel on top.

      4000 series has been rumored to be 15-20% faster.

      On the other hand, a new release, in an environment where it is the best products in the market leads me to believe AMD is not going to be generous on the pricing. you will be paying at least 20% more anyway

  •  

    What’s the chance the price can be lower when Ryzen 4000 CPUs arrive, presumably with some decent deals around Black Friday I wonder?

    I’d buy this one now if this will be the lowest price for a while even after Zen 3 arrives, but otherwise will wait if it, or comparable CPUs of the next gen e.g. 4600X, will be cheaper.

    I don’t need a new PC right now (still have to wait for next gen graphics cards too) but it’s getting harder and harder to resist these CPU deals.

      Just buy it with a price protection credit card.

      The price the OP mentioned in the title is shipped (442.59 Shipped) - $428.20 is the price without shipping costs.

    •  

      $428.20 + $14.39 shipping = $442.59 shipped

  •  

    Good deal paid similar price for 3700X not long ago.

    Mine has shipped already.

    •  

      Can you tell me which type of shipping you picked? Mine still says awaiting shipping.

      •  

        Expedited International Delivery was the one i picked.

        •  

          Thanks. I picked expedited as well. Now the wait.

        •  

          Just got update now.

          My order has now been dispatched :)

  •  

    Mmmmmmmmmm…. I have a Ryzen 7, 1800x… On an Asus Crosshairs 4 hero i think and I’m outta touch with the latest tech. Do you think I should upgrade for this deal?

    Only games I play currently are Overwatch, Vermintide 2, Squad and Monster Hunter… No real dramas on the FPS side, roughly 144+ FPS on SLI GTX1070s but only about 80fps for non SLI games on 1440p LG 144hz IPS, 16GB Ram, Ryzen 7 1800x clicked to 3.9Ghz, so I don’t think the bottleneck is the CPU

  •  

    Sooo now I guess I'm starting a Ryzen build. Have been wanting to do for a while, and now it starts.

    Next to start compiling the rest of the parts so it's not just sitting doing nothing

  •  

    What mb and ram to pair with this? Typically upgrade every 4-5 years so no need to worry about gen 3 upgrade.

    • +2 votes

      Any B450 motherboard. My preference is for a MSI Tomahawk MAX (ATX) or Mortar Max (Micro-ATX). There are cheaper B450 motherboards though.

      I'll be looking at 32gb RAM (2X16gb, DDR4 3200mhz, CL16). Seems to be around $200 for most brands.

    Can someone help me out, I'm planning on getting a new CPU mostly for when Cyberpunk comes out at the end of the year. Is this overkill or just future proofing? I'm running a 1080 at the moment.

    •  

      Would help if you told us what CPU you have now :(

      •  

        Lmao nah mate this is way overkill for a 1080.

      •  

        Sorry, I have a i5-6600k. Ended up cancelling my order, will keep an eye out in a few months. Looks like I'll have to rebuild my PC from scratch.

        •  

          6600k is still pretty good. Just OC the crap out of it if you want to save cash?
          Also 6600k uses DDR4 so if your RAM is compatible, it's just a MB+CPU swap, not whole system rebuild.

    According to userbencmark the added value for 3800x compared to 3600 is somewhat negligible especially considering the price difference
    https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-7-3800X-vs-A...

    •  

      This is really helpful, thanks!

      •  

        It is not recommended to use userbenchmark as they are biased against AMD.

    • +2 votes

      Doesn't seem particularly problematic in this case, but be very careful with using userbenchmark. Their comparison percentages and weightings are way off.

      For example: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i3-9100F-vs... , where the threadripper has a faster single core speed, 16x the cores, 32x the threads and the i3 comes out on top…

    • +1 vote

      Userbenchmark gives anything over 4 cores a very low value, which is misleading

      https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/AMD-Ryzen-7-3700X-vs-AM...

      Use cpubenchmark which gives total performance, compare the single core score yourself, and decide how many cores your software can use.

    Im thinking about using the Dark Rock Slim with this CPU. Any suggestions?

    I noticed using the same "tricK" I can get it for $77
    https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B07R5TQQMR/ref=ox_sc_ac...

    But realized now that I should have perhaps bought it both together to save on shipping :(
