Plus the 1700X is also discounted to 370 dollars, so with the 50 dollar discount that's effectively 80 dollars of your CPU+Motherboard set.

Also Microcenter seems to have a decent availability of motherboards, my local store has the C6H, MSI Titanium, Gigabyte Gaming 5 and Asus Prime X370.

Not bad, can get the 1700X for $20 more with the $50 discount vs the 1700 with only a $30 discount. I guess for $20 its worth it for slightly better binning. Also wasn't the MSI Titanium like $250 around launch and now its $300? Overpriced imo.

Yes, Microcenter is known for discounting their processors and having bundle deals, and they started that with Ryzen today.
So yeah, just a heads up to anyone looking to buy Ryzen.

Yeah, 20 dollars more for a slightly better binned chip might be worth it for some.
Also the MSI Titanium did look expensive for 300 dollars when you can get the C6H for 250, didn't know it was 250 at launch.

Isn't G.Skill's 3200MHz CL14 memory Samsung?
I don't know if that's sold in Microcenter, they probably sell the CL16 kit.

They sell a pc 3200 15-17-17 (timings = hynix) trident z for 129.99

Some stuff is not listed on the website.

Cambridge has a MSI x370 for $239.99 open box buy/return.

As you can see my options at my store suck...

So basically my 1800x was suffering from periodic 10sec freezes while playing WoW or HotS. Games would not crash, and windows would not become totally unresponsive. I would appear as If i am about to disconnect only to reconnect after 10 secs. It would happen maybe once or twice per hour. I reinstalled windows twice and even tried my old win installation from an FX8320 rig. It stopped at some point after I upgraded pretty much every possible driver of the system so I assumed it was sound related. Today the issue reappeared. Last night I switched to balanced mode back from High power but did not launch WoW. Today It happened straight away so I suppose balanced is the culprit here. Going back to HP fixed it again.I am in a full blackbox testing situation here but it seems to be the case. WoW or HotS would barely load the CPU so windows probably sent the whole CCX including the cores that ran the game to sleep.

AMD specifically told reviewers to use high performance hpet enabled.

Not only that it skews results especially in win 10 (RTC).

Many benchmarks can be skewed just by booting at auto and using software to jack multi up in windows.

Those seeing magical gains well this is why. Swap to 7 the magical gains go away.

I don't know why reviewers overclock in the first place, majority of people buying systems for work related applications don't overclock, hell even a lot of gamers don't do it since they don't know how to tweak the hardware. It's only a small percentage that does OC.
