Didn't work for me, where do you sign up for the blitz deal?

Not a bad price for this chip (not an all-time low either). If you are overclocking the Ryzen 5 1600 has almost equivalent performance (https://www.techspot.com/article/...x-vs-1600/), is $200 when not on sale, and comes with a decent cooler.

Also, Ryzen lowered their prices recently, although the retailer prices haven't budged. The standard market price should drop soon, which means the sales will be even better.

Also, new Ryzen chips in April if you can afford to wait.

AMD announced price drops for most of their Ryzen chips at CES. The 1600X should be $220 instead of $250. So you're only saving $10 here?

It's pretty much hovered at $220 for the past month anyways, regardless of official pricing. I don't think the CES price announcement has had an impact on retailers yet, so I'm hoping it goes down even more in the next few weeks.

Given all AMD chips are practically immune to the Meltdown and Spectre bugs from a practical standpoint due to their different chip design over Intel chips, anyone that values not getting hacked or having their performance gimped by updates should never even consider any Intel system until they roll out new CPU designs that eliminate Intel's design flaws.

Just a tad lower than it. Unless AMD's new CPUs blow these out of the water, it's still a nice deal. Example, an 1800x I got came out to ~$341 a month ago, which is a great deal for that CPU, however new pricing starts at $350. But it still works out fine as long as new CPUs aren't way up there in performance gains.

In the big picture, with RAM prices remaining sky high a few dollars off the processor is not going to help anyone build a bargain priced system...unless you happen to have the RAM on hand already.

You can overclock the ryzen 5 1600 to the same overclock that the 1600x can achieve! If you're into that kind of thing I think it's a little cheaper as well!

Where did you find this info? From what I've read, the difference in power consumption between the two is small when overclocked, with the X drawing slightly more.
