    The demand for cpu's is rediculous right now.

    Its been 3 months ive been looking for a 1200 or 1300x for a low power system, and literally nobody seems to be upgrading their piece of crap :p

    The 3600 is a pretty darn good chip though; gotta be a little bit more careful with the voltages, since it's 7nm, but still usually hits some pretty sweet clocks.

      They pressing everything they can into crypto mining?

      •  

        Nah, even at 14nm the old 1200's or the like, that im chasing, arent good value for money.

        Even if the chip was power efficient; there are better 2nd hand chips-a-plenty, that would slot into their motherboard and give them more payout.

        Miners arent silly.

      I’ve got the 3600X and have no complaints. It could be faster and could have more cores though, gets a bit hot too. But when I first got it it felt incredibly fast, I guess I’m just used to it now.

    Damn… I paid $100 more a couple of months ago.

    Down from $315 from a month ago, wow.

    Given the demand for this chip right now, this is an excellent deal as they're normally over $300

    I'd buy it right now but being forced into Afterpay seems like a pain in the behind!

      psssst. buy gift cards, use the code and then 'pay with afterpay' the reminder which is $0 :)

        I'm so lost!

        Isn't Afterpay another 'loan you money in hopes you can't pay so we can charge you 25% interest every 15 minutes?'

        How do gift cards work if they want you to borrow money?

          Not sure but the workaround is a great way to avoid using that scam pay platform.

          You buy eBay gift cards like this

          Wait about an hour and you'll receive the code in your email, which is used similarly to coupon codes.

          If I ever use an Afterpay deal like this, I just pay if all the owing amount straight away.

          Afterpay is actually pretty easy, if people ever pay fees on it then they dessert for their ignorance haha

          Afterpay make more money on repeat customers than customers who abandon it because of late fees. Difference between afterpay and using your own merchant account to process card payments can be over 5% of the transaction. Ebay probably have negotiated a much lower fee, but it’s still more than they pay with Paypal.

            @AustriaBargain: I didn't think they make a profit at all, I was under the impression they ran at a loss? Maybe that has changed.

            •  

              @Buyingcrap: Amazon ran at a loss for four years. But it was all part of the master plan to becoming a ubiquitous service that makes huge profits. People are starting to treat Afterpay like a bank card for their shopping and that has to be worth something. People are using their zippay accounts as bankcards with nfc on their phones. The banks spent billions rolling out that technology early in Australia, these systems are worth a fortune to the banks because they thought it’d get people reliant on their card accounts and make them billions more than the cost of rolling out the tech so it became a quick standard. Afterpay shares are massively undervalued in the long run.

                @AustriaBargain: "Afterpay shares are massively undervalued in the long run."

                That's the funniest thing I will read all day! If you own afterpay shares sell them right now before that bubble bursts.

                •  

                  @Buyingcrap: In the short term they are overvalued. If you want to get rich quick then sell your shares and buy lottery tickets.

    WTF, how can these CPU prices be going down so much, I thought I got a good deal on the weekend now it's even cheaper???

    • +2 votes

      Lol…the prices aren't going down. Its an afterpay special. You just didn't wait for a hard enough discount.

    • +1 vote

      It looks to me as though the chips aren't cheaper. You cannot find anything like these prices anywhere else. That makes me think that AfterPay themselves are literally paying the difference to the merchants.. splashing millions of dollars in the hopes this gets people hooked on AfterPay in the long run.

        As the banks start to implement their own afterpay systems (commbank being the first) I'm hoping we see some real desperation from these scummy buy now pay later companies. Could see some good deals out of it!

        Serves them right for giving credit to people on centrelink, what an awful business model.

      Very nice price for a very nice CPU - I think it might be a parallel import/overseas stock? given the 1yr warranty instead of the normal 3

      •  

        The OEM or tray versions are sold for prebuilt systems not retail sales, thus they have no warranty from the manufacturer.

        • +1 vote

          Not quite. They have no express warranty from the manufacturer, but the manufacturer or importer (likely the same entity) is still responsible for the statutory warranty under ACL. This has no set period and I would think a claim past 1 year would be successful.

      •  

        1 year warranty from the seller only
