AMD Ryzen 7 3700x $445.44 + Delivery ($0 with Prime) @ Amazon US via AU


Just got an email for this price change. Amazon like to send me updates on a product I already bought 9 months ago.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems to be only about a dollar off the lowest price I've seen. So not a bad time to jump on it if this is one you're after. (although we've all been saying the 4000 series is around the corner for the last 5 months now).

The 3600 is coming up at $264.10 as well.

  • Having a hard time holding off for Ryzen 4000 when deals like this keep popping up.

  • Any rough estimate on how long shipping would take for Melbourne City ?.

    • I ordered the Ryzen 9 3900X (also from US), shipped via FedEx 26/7/20 time. They used international priority, arrived today (I'm in Sydney). The same postage costs $200 for non-customers so guess I was lucky? I also ordered RAM and they used Fastway which is slightly slower.

      • Woah. That is awesome. I see that 3900x price is 669 AUD now on Amazon AU. Might pull the trigger on that

        • if cashback applies to cpus take another ~ $30 off that. worth noting about 2 weeks ago the price on amazon was about $633 and cashback was 7% not 5%.

          • @hamu33: Thanks for that. Not in a hurry. Also not sure if it will drop further. Been eying 3900x for a week now

            • @varunbabu008: I got the 3900x, here's my build list:

              • CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
              • Cooler: Noctua NH-U12S Chromax CPU Cooler
              • Mobo: MSI MPG B550 GAMING EDGE WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard
              • RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (x2 kits + would've gotten 3600 but got these for a good price, total 64GB ram might be a bit overkill but I do intend to run virtual machines on this computer)
              • Boot Drive: Corsair MP600 Force Series Gen4 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (PCIe Gen4)
              • Secondary Drives: Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive (new) + Intel 760p 1 TB (from an older laptop)
              • GPU: GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB OC (from previous pc)
              • Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Black ATX Case, T/G Dark Tint Window
              • PSU: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX (intend to upgrade GPU whenever AMD / Nvidia releases new cards)

              Also a ton of noctua chromax fans (these are f-ing expensive but I have had amazing experiences with Noctua and their customer service) and some psu power cable extensions. Total build approx $2500 (gg wallet T_T)

              Note: Go X570 motherboard if possible - I wasn't able to find a decently priced ATX one with good VRMs and thermals that was under $400 at the time. You may be able to get something good like the Gigabyte GA-X570 Aorus Elite for under $400 now.

        • Don't you think techfast deal is cheaper ( with 570 mobo, at a price of $1348 even with other cheap parts

          • @Boogi: I wanted to get that experience of building a PC by myself. Nothing beats that I guess.
            Also I have heard that techfast attracts consumers with just the CPU and GPU tied up with subpar components. Upgrades will almost cost the same as me picking my components. I don't wan't that.
            But yeah I understand that these builds are really attractive since prices are super low

            • @varunbabu008: I also build my own PC usually, but just with the CPU, mobo, memory, PSU, and case, it is hard to beat that price, that's why I couldn't decide whether to buy the components separately or just buy this unit from techfast and replace few components.

              • @Boogi: It depends if you want to pay a bit of a premium for quality parts, I was also considering techfast but after i pieced together components and compared, techfast's costs creep up if you select their optional upgrades.

                I played around with one of their 3700x builds previously and although the total bill for their system was around $2200, I felt that I did not have enough flexibility to choose a good case that also did not have RGB (which I dislike), decent CPU cooling which was not AIO/water cooled, and the brand / variant for components such as the mobo (only decent option was the B550 mortar), RAM, SSD and PSU.

                Also not sure if mucking around with the fans and cooling components inside the case (which I would definitely do) would cause issues with warranty.

                If you choose parts carefully (by using pcpartpicker and staticice), I'm sure you would be able to build something with parts of comparable or better quality for roughly the same cost. I have some experience building computers so none of this is daunting to me but it might be for a beginner so that's where techfast would be beneficial (plugging stuff is easy but things like cable management and dealing with airflow, provided techfast does it properly, is harder).

    • Ordered this on 23/7 still not shipped.

      • Hey blorx. Is your 3900x from Amazon Shipped ?. I ordered on 30.07 and its still not shipped

        • yep Fri 31/7, arrives 22/8 (3700x though)

          • @blorx: The estimated date is very wrong, if shipped using FEDEX will take 4 days, if Fastway it will take about 1-1.5 weeks

            • @OzBargainHunter3000: I really hope that's true. I ordered my 3900x on 30th July and it was only shipped yesterday. Now the original delivery date has been pushed back from Aug17th to Aug 20th. At this point amazon orders page just says its shipped. Doesn't show if its been sent via Fedex or Fastway. I'av got all the parts lined up. Waiting on this CPU

  • Having a hard time deciding between the ryzen 5 3600 and this, for the price difference, performance improvement is only marginal, is that correct?

    • If your primary use is gaming, no real point to spend extra, particularly at higher resolutions/quality.

      You'd have to be doing serious other tasks to justify it imo.

    • I opted for the 3600 when faced with the same decision a few months back and don't regret it at all. Given how cheap the 3600 is it seems a no brainer to start there, then if you find you need more you can always upgrade to the Ryzen 4000 equivalent of the 3700x 6+ months from now.

    • Yeah I just grabbed the R5 3600 on the last deal as a stop gap type of upgrade to my R7 1700…. no regrets so far.

      PC is purely for gaming and my X370 mobo was fully updated prior to fitting the 3600, which has now allowed me to update brand new bios which I couldn't flash before due to the older CPU.
      Now I can OC my RAM to 3200 (I couldn't even use the XMP Profiles beforehand) so I'm getting much better performance all round.

      Very happy camper!

    • More cores better for future emulation that use multi-core multi threads, My original ryzen 1700 perform heaps better in cemu than ryzen 5 second-gen in CEMU, get to play all those Wii U Nintendo games perfectly with a better controller like xbox one

    • 3700x is only necessary if you are regularly video/photo editing, streaming or creating music. Or any other similar productivity applications. If you only need for basic we browsing/gaming and some office work. 3600 any day of the week. Pop those savings into a better gpu/storage.

  • Assuming you didn't mean just Amazon pricing, $425-$433 are the all time lows, but Newegg had it about $8 cheaper the other day.

    Adding the product model as a tag in the post makes it much easier for people to see and check this too.

    At this price, you still want to wait for Ryzen 4000 if you can.

  • Still a fairly big gap in pricing, Microcenter in the US is selling this for USD260 (~AUD362), I reckon there is still a lot of room for Oz retailer to drop pricing. IMO, if you can hold on then wait for further drop.

  • I'm planning a future build… Which is better for gaming? Intel or AMD?

        • the reliability of new security vulnerabilities every 6 months.

          • @xrailgun: Maybe in the past that was true but overly aggressive CPU optimisations have come back to bite Intel.

            In the last 2 years with Meltdown, Spectre & all the subsequent side channel attacks on CPUs it's been AMD that has required fewer microcode patches and OS workarounds.

            (Graphic cards are another matter entirely)

          • @xrailgun: Wait, wut? Surely you're talking about Intel?

            OzBargainHunter3000 says Intel is 'more reliable' and I know AMD has had waaaay fewer issues with security vulnerabilities, so I'm still curious to know what makes Intel the more reliable choice?

        • The drivers for the 5700 xt were a bit of a shit show, but they've mostly sorted themselves out now. I have one. 2070s is the pick of the bunch atm. but I'd probably just get the cheapest thing I could get until the next gen come out if I were in the market atm. second hand rx 580 probably.

          • @frondono: Second this, I've had no issues.

            Now I'm going to cop some 20 negs for this, but a lot of 5700 XT "driver issues" (at least since the more recent drivers, they were real a few months ago) are down to users blaming every issue with their system on it. BSOD? It was the 5700 XT, cannot possibly be bad RAM. Black screen? It was the 5700 XT, cannot possibly be unstable infinity fabric even though many Zen 2 chips can't handle 1800 FCLK without some voltage tweaking. Stuttering? Nah totally not the file decompression I have going on in the background. The list can go on and on. I've noticed all of these issues predominantly with bad memory OCs or unstable FCLK, and both of these things are even not that uncommon at stock settings. A large issue is tunnel vision among users, and if it's having an issue it cannot possibly be that the card is physically faulty, it must be the drivers.

            AMD's reputation has screwed them over big time, and even when they overcome those issues that reputation remains.

            And… funny story… was helping someone over on reddit with terrible framerates in games and they just so happened to have a 5700 XT, the issue was that they didn't install the drivers lmao. If the drivers are known to be unstable why not just avoid them?

            End of rant.

    • either you're getting i9 10900k + 2080ti/titan, or you're going AMD. Intel has no price-performance winner currently.

      • I'd say Intel competes reasonably at the low end actually. The i3 10100 and i5 10400 aren't bad value. When you get into higher core counts, AMD wins hands down. Intel doesn't even have a competitor to the 3950X.

        • sorry, i don't see how. the 10100 and 10400 are somewhat close to the 3300x and 3600 in base specs/price, but i don't see any situation where you would actually pick the intels.

          in each case, AMD has more cache, PCIE4 support (probably irrelevant, but still), and the ability for overclocks even with entry level ~$130 motherboards, and support for RAM past 2666mhz.

          • @xrailgun:

            sorry, i don't see how. the 10100 and 10400 are somewhat close to the 3300x and 3600 in base specs/price, but i don't see any situation where you would actually pick the intels.

            The 10100 is generally around the 3100 and cheaper than the 3300X, both of which have been relatively unavailable since their launch (probably because yields for AMD have been good and they'd rather be selling 3600 and up).

            E.g. a quick search on StaticICE shows the i3 10100 for $179 ( The cheapest Ryzen 3 3100 is only $169 (, and the Ryzen 3 3300X is $195 (

            I'd say it's pretty much a wash at this price-point. Again, I didn't say the 10100 is "the best", I just said it competes reasonably and "not bad value", which I think is true.

            Again, same with the 10400, it's around $265 (, which is the same as (or a little less than) the price of a 3600. Again, not better value than the 3600, but competitive.

            Also, something worth keeping in mind is that Intel has an iGPU which makes it the instant pick for office PCs, HTPCs and the like. AMD's 3000 series APUs are no match and their 4000 series APUs aren't here yet.

            in each case, AMD has more cache, PCIE4 support (probably irrelevant, but still), and the ability for overclocks even with entry level ~$130 motherboards, and support for RAM past 2666mhz.

            PCIe 4.0 is largely irrelevant because you need B550 or X570. If you're buying a $200 Ryzen 3300X, it makes no sense to pair it with a B550 because you can save $65 dropping to B450 and get a 3600 instead.

            Overclocking is a fair point, but CPUs these days are tuned to the brink already. I can hardly get any more mileage out of any of my Ryzen CPUs. My 3970X is just too power hungry to really be OC'd, my 3900X runs too hot and my 3600 is already at its wits end with the stock cooler.

    • For gaming, you get better fps with intel.

      For multithreaded productivity, you get better results w/AMD.

      For new builds, it's more cost-effective to go AMD.

      If you have a pre-existing Z370 or Z390 MB, just upgrade your BIOS+CPU.

      • Unfortunately i have a Z170 mobo and i5 6600 and gtx1070… So i think i'm due for a complete upgrade. Tempted to wait for the Ryzen 4000 + RTX 3080…

    • Pure gaming, Intel, general-purpose that do general good in everything Ryzen, from emulation to productivities to programing and compiling and slice and dices 3D printing file

      • Thanks. I do probably 80% gaming 20% 3D printing (CAD and Slicing). Going by what you're saying… Ryzen is probably the route to take…

  • Already put in two Price protection claims on this, not sure if can be bothered again for another 10$, probably should

  • anyone know how well AMD chips resell? pretty much got all the components for my new rig except CPU and GPU. Thinking of getting a 3900x but want to see what 4000series offers, so I'm think of getting a 3600 or lower chip as a placeholder for now.

  • I currently have this setup and was hoping it would be enough to play CP2077 at High/Ultra with 60FPS at 1440p:

    But given the delays with the game I feel like it may not be enough. Is it worth upgrading the CPU with this?

    • Hey, I think holding off for 4000 series AMD is worth it for you considering CP2077 isn't even out till November and AMD4000 will drop by the end of the year.

      • Thanks for that. Reckon I would need to change any other thing in my build?

        • The only thing is the motherboard I think, ryzen 4000 will only support a 500-series motherboard, so a X570 or 550

          • @Blizzard57: Ryzen 4000 will support 400-series boards, with MSI having confirmed it, either way the B550M Pro4 for $169 is still a great pick. AM4 will probably end with Ryzen 4000 or maybe the 5000 APUs.

            • @Rajeh: No point buying motherboard now for Ryzen 4, you can get them after the CPU is announced maybe even with the new X670 chipset
              motherboard go on sale all the time

              • @Hearthstone: I believe X670 and B650 will be on socket AM5 and will release Q1/2 next year.

                • @Rajeh: Unless AMD change strategy recently X670 will be launched with Ryzen 4, availability of the motherboard is another thing

                  • @Hearthstone: Can't find any information on this so hoping for some clarification.

                    I'm assuming Ryzen 4000 won't be compatible with AM5, just like how AM3 CPUs weren't compatible with AM4 CPUs? So the B650/X670 will be the last motherboards for Ryzen 4000s, and Ryzen 5000s will only work on AM5 boards?

                    • @Major Major: Ryzen 4 probably the last line for AM4, next stop AM5, AMD milk enough out of AM4 already, AM5 probably a new socket and chipset but all speculation.

                      but Ryzen 4 with 20 or 30 Nvidia will last you at least 5-7 years by then who cares there will something better and greater then

                      I am currently on Ryzen 1700 (first gen) and Nvidia 1070 and it been a couple of years now and it still going strong, nothing I cant do with the current setup, kids play LoL and I use it for everything else and still blazing fast

                      I can see I can get another 3-5 years out of it easy, I didn't even bother with Ryzen 2700 or 3700 upgrade I can't see it going to be much faster for the task that I am doing.

                      I replace this PC with whatever available in 5-10 years time.

                      I select quality parts and build it myself and most PC I build last at least 5 years, usually closer to 10 years mark

            • @Rajeh: thanks for correcting me.

  • Guys, DDR5 has just had its certification. Its not planned for release til end of 2021- start of 2022.
    'X670' is planned DDR5. What makes you all think its getting released start of next year?

    If your gonna upgrade, do it now whilst parts are in stock. We're in the middle of a pandemic for the next year. Parts are already low etc.
    I wasn't planning on upgrading my X58 system til AMD 4000, but since tracking parts availability since Feb this year, its evident that there will be a global shortage.
    I was lucky enough to get a MSI X570 Tomahawk, Sold out in 2 days and now on back order til august.

  • I'm planning on buying this for my two pc setup for streaming and video editing, is this a good choice and what motherboard should i pair it with for my need (streaming and editing). Thanks

    • Yeah fantastic CPU for that purpose, I use it for that + gaming and music production.

      The MSI Tomahawk Max is fantastic board if you don't need Wifi, if you do need wifi, the Pro Carbon is quite good.

      Alternatively, if you prefer to build in a smaller case, the Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi or the MSI B450i gaming plus are fantastic ITX boards too.

      • I'm contemplating on whether I should buy the 3700x or the 3900x, but thanks for the motherboard recommendation I might get that actually or the X570, but for my need what do you think?

        • I'd say the 3900X. The 3700X is in a bit of a weird spot. It's around $200 more than the 3600 for only 2 more cores, but it's around $200 less than the 3900X for 4 less cores.

          I just don't really see the 3700X as a good value. Either go with the 3600 and save $200 if you don't need the cores, or spend $200 more and go with the 3900X if you need more cores.

        • Your budget is gonna be the deciding factor there, 3900x is deinfitely a much better processor but also higher cost, if you're happy with the higher cost, then do that absolutely. In terms of x570, do you plan on upgrading your parts in the next 24 months- in particular your GPU and CPU? if not, it's a waste of money.

          • @ONEMariachi: Hmm because if its a 24 month time frame i might actually upgrade my GPU, because the current one I have is from a friend (GTX1060) he doesn't need it anymore so in the future i might upgrade my gaming rig and put that in this one.
