nonsense. 1600 should be only a few bucks more and worth the extra cores.

While this is a good price for the 1500x,
the 1500x is just a very slightly overclocked 1400, which is already 150.

So in terms of it being a deal, it's pretty meh, since you aren't actually saving any money due to the 1400 and 1500x having just about identical performance, and actual identical performance after a tiny overclock. Hope to see the 1400 Discounted Smilie
There is also as someone said, the next processor up that is only 40 more dollars for an extra 2 cores and 4 threads, so that adds further need for the 1400/1500x to be discounted to make it worth sacrificing those.

I have a strict budget of $600 (had to reuse parts to even get close to this). This was the last item i needed so this will do and put me right in at $600. I know the 1400 can be over clocked to the same but they need this to be reliable so i cant go nuts with an OC. Im hoping the 1500 will OC more reliably as ive read its just a higher bin. We'll see.
