People seem to be more able to post a critical review of something than they are if it works as intended, which is probably why I see the DoA posts.
I've always been weary of big purchases for electronics.
I guess its time to start buying my build then. In the future ill probably look into the newer chips that will be coming out along with the am4 boards. I hoenstly had no idea they were going to be making new boards and cpus so thank you for pointing that out.


DOA? What are you talking about? It is rare to get a bad motherboard, or psu. Especially from a reliable company. Bad ram is rare and bad cpu's are rarer than hens teeth. You do get a lot of people who have no clue how to build a pc buying incompatible components. Plugging stuff in the wrong place., Bending cpu pins. The whole nine yards. My honest opinion is that you get someone with experience to help you pick out components and assemble your build. Hardware for an AMD build is no more prone to "DOA" as you call it than an Intel build is.

Probably because they don't exist.

If you read into it, I was referring to reviews from other customers, and that I have not personally built anything AMD.
Good to see OC.net has some aggressive types here as well.

I wish you would have been more helpful than rude, my comment would have served more of a purpose.

Anywho, about that Xeon series...

That is an anti vibration gasket. Not a "foam fan/radiator protectors". I am not aggressive. Just straightforward.
