Ryzen2 anticipation is part of it, but RAM prices make new builds super-duper-unslick atm too. I've been hoping for a decent price on a 2x8 pair for a new mini-itx build, and while the processors and boards are relatively cheap, I can't justify paying so much for something that was 50% cheaper a year ago.

Ryzen2 must be on the horizon, this is a slick deal and nary a peep from the crowd. Many review sites have mentioned that the 1600 is the sweet spot of the 1st. Gen. Ryzen release.

Edit: confirmed some of the Ryzen2 lineup is scheduled for release next month. Some leaked benchmarks suggest the Ryzen2 equivalent of the 1600 (2600) will be about 18% faster. Of course it will also be in the $200 price range making the decision a bit tougher vs this $130 1600.

In for one, thanks OP and NimBinDobbs! I've been looking at Ryzen 7 1700 vs 8700k, but this deal inspired me to compare, and with my $31 of Amazon Rewards points (neither 1700 nor 8700k are competitively priced on Amazon), this deal was a no brainer.

Tip for anyone who owns a Noctua NH-D14: you can request an adapter bracket for FREE from Noctua via this form: https://noctua.at/en/nm-am4-mount...order-form if you purchase this or any other AM4 CPU. It's pretty incredible that I'm able to use the same aftermarket cooling solution after going from an Intel 2500k from 2012 to an AMD Ryzen in 2018.

Cheers!

Wow I just bought my r3 1200 in October but couldn't get a decent price graphics card so wife bought me an xbox1x. Paid 110 for 1200. This is a no brainier especially if you game at 1440p results will be the same as 8700k

Thank you OP! Upgrading from a AMD 955. Now the difficult task of finding decent priced RAM and a video card.

Incredibly good price, these Ryzen chips are great. I don't think anyone would have believed it 2years ago if you said there would be a 6c/12t processor for $130.

Agreed. Building a new VM home/lab server and checked out using ryzen now that I hear it works...but the ram prices alone building a dual xeon e5 v2 server are so much less (or 2x - 4x more the VM RAM capacity for similar) and I still get 16-24 real cores ( 32 to 48 virtual cores) - with 64-128gb ram - shame

Nice, I did a Ryzen 5 build around September and am very pleased by it. However, wish I would have gone with 16gb of RAM and not 8, but prices are soooooo high on ram. I got my GPU for MSRP so that was nice.

Just hold off, a year from now it will probably be half what it is now anyways... I too should have bought in at $100 for 16gb ddr4 3200 when it started going up last year.
