You can also save $30 when bundled with a compatible motherboard. Refer to forum thread for additional information and discussion.

It looks like Micro Center has stepped up its deals in light of what other stores have been offering. The "sweet spot" of the lineup is the Ryzen 1700X, which is priced at $259.99, just $10 more than the Ryzen 1700:

In my opinion, it's worth the extra $10 whether or not you plan to overclock. If so, you might get a better binned chip; if not, you'll get a small performance boost over the 1700. The only downside to the 1700x is that it doesn't include a CPU cooler.

If you need a cooler included, the Ryzen 1700 includes the Wraith Spire cooler, which I've heard is decent enough, and it may overclock just as well as a 1700x:

Buy a motherboard with your Ryzen CPU and you'll save $30 extra. If you're looking to overclock, I recommend the ASRock Taichi X370:

If you don't need to overclock, a less expensive model should work just as well, but I haven't looked at those motherboards specifically.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I'm hoping they'll come back with the $50 off deal for Black Friday/Cyber Monday or before Christmas.

Microcenter seems to have the best deal for CPUs & motherboards because it's hard to beat $30 off and the rebates on top of it.

What is the probability that the 1700X will be stable running at 3.8ghz with only 1.275V? My 1700 (non-X) requires 1.325V to run at this speed, which pushes my temps up to the mid-high 70s on full load Frown

What cooler are you running? You could go with an AIO or something like a H7. Newegg will have it on sale starting the 20th. How many case fans? 70 isn't bad if that's the max temperature under a full load and you're concerned add a case fan or two to increase airflow.

This was one of the lowest prices I've yet seen for the 1700x. Staples has previously pricematched Microcenter deals, but they wouldn't for this deal since it is considered a Black Friday special. Frown

Lowest I've seen for 1700X. A good deal for those close by a Microcenter.

Does anyone know of a trustworthy service that would buy in-store and ship to someone that does not have a Microcenter nearby?

This doesn't seem like a BF deal as it is currently live.
