    I really shouldn't have purchased last Tuesday.

    •  

      In other words ‘please refund the difference Harris Tech’. Would be for their reputation.

        No, that wouldn't be fair. I got what I thought was a good price, and it was a good price. Just that today's is even better! Nothing wrong with that.

          Well if there's nothing wrong with that, then your original statement doesn't make sense:

            @Zackeroo: Ethical replies bring the opposite out pretty damn quickly here on OzB.

          even better

          That's an understatement.

          This is the best CPU deal on OzBargain for months.

          3300x has been above $220 since launch 12 months ago, and even at $220 it's the best bang-for-buck AMD gaming CPU. It's very, very close to the top gaming CPUs for performance in current games, including the $1000+ CPUs.

          $160 is an absolute steal.

    What does OEM refer to in terms of purchasing a CPU?

    • +4 votes

      I know that if you buy a custom PC from a retailer, they will just pick a CPU from a tray of a dozen CPUs (e.g., there's no retail packaging). I'm not sure what packaging you get when you buy a tray CPU online though.

    •  

      pretty sure it is the same item as retail but the packaging and warranty may vary?

    • +2 votes

      I believe oem is cpu only no cooler and retail packaging. 3300x very worth. Like my 3600x I don't even use the original cooler. Found and paid for a rgb wraith prism

      No heat sink, no documentation, just the chip and maybe warranty. If it’s proper OEM then you can’t contact AMD for warranty too, it has to go through the vendor.

      • +1 vote

        That may be AMD's policy but it isn't legal in Australia. Both the retailer and the manufacturer are responsible for the warranty under ACL.

    •  

      The OEM versions of the 3300X and 3600 both here and on other local retailers all specify that they come with a cooler (this listing even includes a separate picture of just the cooler, and "Wraith Stealth" in the title), so I'm not sure that the other comments are correct or not in this case about not having a cooler included.

      •  

        From what I get from google AMD CPU category into below, but not 100% sure if the deal's MPK comes with cooler.

        OPN Tray:
        Thermal Solution (TRAY)
        N/A

        OPN PIB:
        Thermal Solution (PIB)
        Wraith Stealth

        OPN MPK:
        Thermal Solution (MPK)
        Wraith Stealth

          I just got a 3600 OEM and can confirm for future deals of the same nature that I did get an included cooler (Y).

    Is there a difference in warranty/RMA process between the OEM and retail versions?

    If you're selling OEM stuff how about some Renoir APUs? Please?

    3300X better than 2600/1600AF with 6 cores 12 threads?

    • +2 votes

      Yes (for 99% of things, including gaming, yes)

      Not sure if I'd bother upgrading if I already had a 1600AF though, even with this incredible price, the difference isn't exactly huge, especially above 1080p:

      same boat, i have 2600 ryzen too, wonder how much more fps can i get by buying this with the same gpu 1070. (cs, siege, apex etc)

      • +1 vote

        I'd say we're probably GPU bottlenecked with low end GPUs (I'm running an RX570). All the benchmarks do place the 3300X about 20% ahead of the 2600 in gaming but they use a 2080 Ti at 1080p which would create a CPU bottleneck.

        It is better, but not by much.

        The red arrow is pointing to an overclocked 1600AF (which you can essentially treat the same as a ordinary Ryzen 5 2600)

        You will also notice that while the Average Framerate is higher on the 3300X compared to the 1600AF, the minimum 1% Lows and and 0.1% lows are a little worse. This is because the 1600AF (2600) has more cores / threads than then 3300x.

    Hey OP, wrong link for the 3600 OEM - should be https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/184612463146?epid=13036636939

      thanks for picking this up, updated

  • +2 votes

    $249 for retail Ryzen 3600 is pretty good.

    •  

      Yeah, but not when the 3300X is $160 (unless your primarily want the performance for decompressing lots of zip files or something. For gaming, 3300X is actually faster than 3600 in a lot of games).

  •  

    Any good deals on a motherboard and RAM pairing for the 3300X?

    If I pull the trigger I will be upgrading from an i5 6600 which I think is bottle necking my RTX 2060 super. Would that be right?

    Gaming only. Usually 1080p and sometimes 2k.

      I went with F4-3200C16D-16GVKB for my 3600 during the afterpay ebay sale. HT are sold out, but scorptec have it for $106 after coupon (add your own +giftcard discount +cashback of your choice).

      Just pick whatever is double sided (not important if you're planning 4 sticks), cheap, decent speed and latency and ideally in your selected motherboard QVL memory list.

      My i5 2500k (at 4.7ghz) was bottlenecking my 980, so yes? :)
      With the Ryzen 3600, I gained about 60% performance (in dota2).

      If your CPU cores or threads are pinned at 100% while gaming, and your GPU is utilisation is only like 60%, that's a pretty good sign your CPU is limiting your performance.

      •  

        Thanks so much!

        I'll check it out, can't wait for the performance jump. The improvement from my old and very solid 970 was good but knew I had left a lot more performance on the table.

    Will the 3300x work in a B550 mobo ?

      Yep it should out of the box. I just bought one to pair with a Gigabyte B550m i have lying around.
