My code works for me. $499.99 online (yes, online without sales tax) purchase with free ground shipping.

However during checkout it says my two Visa credit cards are not valid. Have to use American Express.

EDIT: my Visa card company thought it was fraud and declined the transaction. You should be able to use Visa card during Frys checkout.

Newb to threadripper. How much faster then a 1700 is this thing? Is it worth the premium?

There's no real difference between this and 1800X. You're paying more for Threadripper's more advanced platform, socket TR4's x399 has 64 PCIe Lanes if you need'em. Quad-Channel Memory support as well.

Much like Intel has done, the stratification isn't the difference in clock speed-they OC to about the same threshold-but the memory bandwidth (quad not dual) and PCIE lanes (in this case, 64 of em!).

Is it safe to assume we'll need liquid cooling for this beast?

Rather limited application for most people when 1800x is available for $100 less with cheaper boards. As mentioned above just a few features added, which could be VERY useful for some professionals.

No there are air coolers that'll work just fine. This doesn't produce as much heat as the 16 core TR chips.

As far as I'm aware this just has more PCI-E lanes, no? In comparison to everything below the "threadripper" name.

Except the packaging Wink, the pci lanes and quad channel Ecc ram, i don't see the point of this proc versus the regular 1800x

For the general user no, there is no point. Well.. maybe if you plan on running a lot of drives, multiple GPUs. But even then, lol. I just want to retire my 4670k.

It's also binned quite a bit higher than the 1700, 1700x, and 1800x, only THE BEST cores make it into a Threadripper!
