for 3 bucks more and no rebate hassle, you can get the 2600x and a b450 mobo if you live near a microcenter https://www.microcenter.com/produ...ard-bundle

Looks like you tend to get good chips and keep them a long time. If I was in your board and wanted to do it again, I'd wait until about Christmas time and get a good deal on a b450 board and a 3700x or 3700 (rumored to be released). 6-7 years from now, those 4 extra threads will probabaly be comming in handy, plus you will have a single core speed advantage.

My guess is, by then, the yields will be better and the bios will be worked out for a much easier user experience, and better (auto) overclocking performance.

Hey guys,

While I think Zen 2 is a decent upgrade over the older Zen architecture at the stock performance, there has been known issue that Zen 2 is not overclocking well comparing to older gens. A recent article, Zen2's 7nm Complications: Why not All Ryzen 3000 Cores Are Created Equal [tomshardware.com] from Tom's HW dug a little deeper to this issue. At this point, I think Zen+ CPUs are still great purchases if you are still on the fence.

Cheers,
TL

There is supposed to be a 3500 comming out, but it is supposedly still a 6 core part. It'll probabaly just be a chiplet from a poor yield. Haven't heard rumors on the price.

Went ahead and got this. My motherboard died last week and I've been looking to switch from Intel to AMD. Thanks!

Except for those of us who don't have an MC nearby, look at this way...Even if I skip the rebate, it's $7 more than microcenter to buy it from newegg and the thing gets shipped to my door.

Looks like the 3600 is out now. According to benchmark sites I checked it out performs the $280 i7 8700 on several cpu tests. and you can get $50 with combo Mobo at microcenter. https://www.microcenter.com/produ...lth-cooler
