    Thanks. Purchased. Hopefully actually in stock

    •  

      Well, as expected by most, it seems it's not in stock. Now my order also says "awaiting stock". I'm not going to be happy if they've lied/made a stupid mistake. Now my money is with them while there might be other opportunities to buy.

        Update:

        I opened a ticket and asked about why it was saying "awaiting stock" and hot the following response:

        "Good day! Thanks for your purchase.

        We expect your order to be dispatched within this week.

        Let us know if we can be of further assistance, have a great day!"

        So looks like stock is in hand and just waiting processing. Good news.

        Oof, only $110 for an extra four cores AND a per core speed bump? That doesn't make a lot of sense…

    Order status: Awaiting Stock

    •  

      Order status is "in stock". Centrecom says even if the status later changes as long as you ordered when it was in stock then it will be allocated to you. They are usually good with stock indicators.

      •  

        Really hope you're right. Definitely in stock, but my account order now shows "Awaiting stock".

        •  

          I was in such panic mode that I chose guest checkout and used prefilled for the form. But in the email confirmation there is a link to order details. A URL. When click that it brings up full details of your order and under the SKU you should see a green indicator confirming it was in stock when you ordered.

          •  

            @DisabledUser372094: Yep okay mine says this also. Where it says awaiting stock is if i go in via my account on the website. Thanks for your positivity - need it. I ordered elsewhere at release time like a minute later, and that order has had 3 ETAs all pass. So i've cancelled that release time order regardless because i'm jacked off with that store and their lack of service. lol.

              @LikezDaBargainz: We'll know on Monday but fingers crossed. If centrecom has delivered then I'll do the right thing and buy a the remaining components from them since they didn't price jack like so many retailers.

              •  

                @DisabledUser372094: "Please Note: If the parts were in stock when you made the purchase they'll be allocated to you, even if the status changes to "sold out" later."

        Centrecom says even if the status later changes as long as you ordered when it was in stock then it will be allocated to you. They are usually good with stock indicators.

        Incorrect

        •  

          Did you order one? It says that on the receipt.

          •  

            @DisabledUser372094: Ordered a 3080 from them, instock at time order later cancelled and refund taking weeks.

            A separate refund taking weeks for a different faulty item returned.

            Wouldn't trust them at all.

            •  

              @Axelstrife: Some biased being negged you (i + you) for telling your experience

            •  

              @Axelstrife: Always order with PayPal for super easy refunds. Just open a PayPal dispute.

              •  

                @ATangk: Both where with paypal, they are bloody hopeless.

                •  

                  @Axelstrife: Paypal refunds should take no more than 48 hrs.

                  •  

                    @ATangk: Contacted twice about my returned faulty item refund since no refund happened after they confirmed id get a refund after they received it back, and the GPU after the canceled order email i didn't get my money back for a week since they didn't immediately hit the refund button only merely stated i'd be getting a refund.

        mine says "picking"… so its better than the previous status.

          Each it changed a little later. I don't believe anything anymore with so many disappointments. I'll believe it when it's in my hand.

            @DisabledUser372094: Confirmed mine is shipped, so they did have it.

            •  

              @LikezDaBargainz: Mine still says "picking". Did you get a tracking email?

              •  

                @DisabledUser372094: Mine just changed too to "complete" with a tracking number :) now to order all the other parts.

      Lower your After Effects render times? When you're sitting there lick a jackass for the 3rd 10 minute render because you kept living in rediculous spelling mistakes, then halving the render time makes you half the jackass.

      according to OzB ppl you need 8 cores to browse the internet

      •  

        You do for chrome.

    •  

      You can play 12 mp3s at once. Technically, 24 at once. Without lag.

    •  

      Transcoding video for editing, and the editing itself, then rendering: all jobs that benefit from more cores. I use an R7 3700X and would still love a 5900X for doing this work quicker!

      Plays 55 Porn hub videos at the same time. So I'm told anyway.

    •  

      Encoding movies, TV Shows etc in HEVC is the highest use of a CPU along with rendering graphics for making video games. If you don't do either of those things it's absolutely pointless getting anything even close to this. I encode daily so this CPU would be a huge gain on my 6700K.

        Yes, there is a green indicator under SKU which means it was in stock when I ordered. But the Order Status is "Awaiting Stock"

        Same here, got the exact same message.

        Everyone on discord who submitted a ticket also got the same template message.

        People with order numbers #5364XX also got this message, which is kinda worrying since the first order number in that discord started at #53615X.

        And the deal was first posted on reddit before that discord.

        This means there must be over 300 stock. A bit unlikely.

      •  

        Also, has your order status also changed to "picking" now?

        •  

          Yes, it just changed this morning.

    do the 5*** series run cooler than the 3***'s?

    using the 3500x and even with noctua aftermarket cooler, i'm getting 45 degrees and sit at 65 degrees and by just having multiple chrome tabs open and some spreadsheets (50% cpu usage) does the 5*** also run hot? I did some googling and apparently the 3000's run this hot usually..

    • +2 votes

      Pretty sure the 5600 and 59xx run relatively cool.
      The 5800x on the other hand… not so cool.
