This seems to be the going rate at B&H, Newegg, and Walmart, too.

I agree. I've seen it more for this price than full retail for the past few months.

I also believe this may be a new retail price due to imminent zen 2 refresh (rumored 3600XT).

CPU itself is rock solid. It runs on low wattage during idle and transcodes 4k without an issue (but u should get gpu encoding at that point). My only problem is the stock cooler that comes with 3600. It suckkkkkks. If you don't plan to overclock, you may get away with it. But for your own mental health, get a cheap after market cpu cooler.

Using a 3700x cooler on a 3600. Gaming temps good, but cinebench gets to 77 deg
I didn't believe the pics on how small the 3600 hs was, so I bought one off eBay. Yeah there isn't even a copper base on it ... It makes coolmaster look bad, (or richer because they get to sell their higher end tower aftermarket heatsinks)

I've been waiting for a sale on this CPU for a while, and it's been regularly priced at $166.89 for several months, I'm sorry but I don't feel like this is a very slick deal.

Am I missing something?

100% agreed with this post. Just get a cheap tower cooler like a Hyper 212 and you are good to go.

I think the best value overall was the 1600AF for $85 available before at amazon, now it jumped to $105.

Is this processor better than the i5-10400? The problem is I can't find a good (in stock) AMD ITX motherboards while Intel motherboards are plentiful.
