1st, Sorry to those who do not live near a microcenter. (ah crap didn't put in store for Mobo in description, my bad)
This matches Last month's Amazon deal.
Or beats it if you buy a Mobo Combo

Link to 3990x [microcenter.com]

Link to MoBo [microcenter.com]

3449.99 + 449.99 - 300 = Math (cheaper than Xeon plat 8280)

For those who can make use of 3990x and need it. fantastic deal. way better than buying a Xeon 8280 which goes for $19k ish.
I ll be waiting for TD and hate for posting Microcenter deal.

For a deal like this, assuming you need a workstation, it's worth a long drive for this deep of a discount.

Likely not for 10-15+ years and that is fine since you are not the audience for this chip.

Now, I think one concern is the longevity of these TR chips considering the associated Intel Xeon chip has an extremely long life. I am not saying that they won't hold up to the task, but this is personally keeping me from biting.

I normally keep my workstations for 7-10 years and servers (production) up to 15 in some extreme cases. I may have a HD or PS fail... but CPU and Memory are extremely rare. Motherboards sometimes fail on the server boards, but that too is very rare.

Back in the early AMD days I have had several CPU's fail on me and needed to swap out the chip. Not a problem for a desktop/gaming system, but not something you want on an expensive workstation chip.
