Kingston NV1 is DRAM-less; stay away if you are a gamer/professional user or if you just need to move large files around It's only good for...

I reckon the delays are because of Nvidia's GPUs; I got an X1 at the same time as this P1 and it arrived a couple weeks ago (right as their...

Gigabyte A520M DS3H AM4 Micro-ATX Motherboard $50 + Shipping @ Skycomp
Seems like a good board for an entry level AMD build, usually priced around $70-$80 despite their $109 RRP claim

By the way, I checked out HX426S15IB2K2/32, it seems pretty good except for 2666Mhz, ideally I'd want 3200Mhz with x8bit chiplets (also...

Hmmmm, yeah the coupon didn't have an end date listed. Maybe start a chat with the sales agents, they can probably still match that price...

afaik 2R is only faster if the motherboard and BIOS have rank interleaving as an option, cause 1R/2R would still share the same 64 bit...

RAM quality was a consideration for my downgrade to 8GB as well but not because of the CL timing (that impacts AMD more), i'm more worried...

When I ordered it, it said 5 weeks for shipping estimate, and the rep said delivery will take another additional 10 days.

Thanks, fingers crossed they fixed this for Gen 4, I will post back here when mine arrives if I encounter similar issues

I would have liked an AMD option too when deciding, but 11th gen Intel has closed the gap quite a bit to AMD. It's still behind AMD 5800H...
