    Mine says the same thing 15 days. Ordered on the 27th. How do you know you were one of the first 5?

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Snagged a 5800x on Amazon that has a January delivery. Was updated within a few hours to December 7. Might be interested in trading someone for a 5600x plus cash if they did not open packaging. Still on the fence, just building a gaming only rig, not sure the extra $150 is worth it.

    BeQuiet 801 AirFlow Edition

    So work continues, priming, painting, clear coat, very tedious. About 75% complete, then see news that BeQuiet is releasing the Silent Base 802 in white which is exactly what I've been building. Awesome...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I had a buy now button, everytime I clicked add to cart I would be transferred to my shopping cart and it was empty... Good times, can 2020 just piss off already.

    DDR4 for Zen 3 build - Mhz vs CAS latency?

    I watched this too and regretted ordering 2x16gb of samsung b die at first. Then I read through some of the comments on the video. Apparently it's not 2 sticks or 4 sticks, it's whether you have 2 rank or 4 rank. The ideal scenario, as it were, is to have 4 ranks. This can be achieved with two...

    DDR4 for Zen 3 build - Mhz vs CAS latency?

    Alright friends, I pulled the trigger on this Kit. I couldn't find compatibility on either AMDs qvl or the motherboard qvl from asus, lol. Fingers crossed, LMAO. It's b-die, so worst case I can break even on it I think if I have to sell and get something different. What are your thoughts, dumb...

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    So, admittedly I've never owned an ATI/AMD card, but the leaks are very tempting. Any ideas what the 6900xt will be priced at or any educated guesses? Looking to get the absolute best I can this generation. TIA

    DDR4 for Zen 3 build - Mhz vs CAS latency?

    You may be right, but the kits I linked are two stick kits. Not looking at 4. My thinking is probably somewhat a result of the Ampere fail. I'm trying to get stuff before it goes oos for extended periods in preparation. Both kits a linked are already oos, but I'm hoping will come back soon. If...

    DDR4 for Zen 3 build - Mhz vs CAS latency?

    I saw a mention of a 4ghz kit with CL15 from gskill. Is that a 2x 8gb kit I assume? I've found two kits, CL16 vs CL17 in the 32gb flavor. Is one going to be better than the other based on secondary timings? CL16 CL17 Of course neither are on the QVL list for the ROG crosshair hero dark I'm...
