Same thing happens every launch for high end hardware ever. This ain't your first rodeo..
Do you get salty because you can't find a fx5800 eng sample all the time?

I got lucky. Nowinstock.net texted me right before I stepped into the shower, around 4:55 am local (10:55 am EST). Clicked over to Amazon -- even had time to change to Amazon Smile -- added to cart and ordered. Huzzah.
One of the very few times being -10:00 GMT has actually helped. Once I'd arrived at work, my phone would be locked in a vault and I'd have no chance of getting a CPU.
I'm kinda bummed by some of the reviews. Performance is one thing, but what about gotchyas with new platform? This happens every CPU/Chipset launch. They all talk about performance but then we have to hear it from the acutal users on the forums where folks see teething with new platform like we did with the Ryzen launches with voltage..etc. Really Tech Youtubers, nothing to report on that front? Everything was perfect?
