Yeah I bought one new off a guy here for 570 shipped which was great price at the time now with a Mobo (asrcok taichi cough cough) it would be the exact same price.- I would not however recommend the cooler master heatsink they sell for it - it was created by satan to torture you.
I would get the asrcok taichi - when I went to get mine - there were about 6 open box gigabyte boards - and the sales guy told me the taichi and the rog extreme were the best - and the taichi was cheaper.
Or alternatively, maybe we could get one of the brot[H]ers that lives truly local to one to hook us up for a modest fee? I mean, sheesh. Maybe Black Friday/Cyber week will bring favorable pricing at Newegg.
What do you guys cool this with? None of the AIO have a coldplate to cover the entire heat spreader. The only one is the Enermax Liquitech, but looking at the reviews those units suffer from galvanic corrosion and go bad after 6 months to a year =/
Well, I did not pick up a 1950X. However, I did pick up a $43.50 Asrock B350 Fatality Gaming mITX openbox mainboard, $119 for 16GB GSkill 3600 ram (Newegg Price match) and a $79 Ryzen 2200G. The board posts, I just tried it 15 minutes ago. I will have to put it together tomorrow. (This is replacing the Athlon 5350 parts.)
