I was thinking maybe $20-$30 difference, but from what I was noticing, the X series does come with their own coolers. I recall seeing a couple without one a few weeks ago, but now I can't find one.
Get it & sell the cpu cooler online. I've seen the wraith stealth (2700x cooler) online for $60 before. I'd sell it for $30-$40 to get it off quick and make a buck. It's actually a very impressive cooler in my opinion I'm running it on my 2700x for now while I gather components.
On local PC store in my country- they sell Ryzen CPU's as Box or "TRY" without the cooler at a discount, they also sell the stock coolers separately.
Maybe you can find local store that does the same?
TRY would be for "tray". They used to do this here too, for AM3 CPUs (especially dual Athlon II) and i 've seen it for FX4300 too. They are OEM CPUs that somehow find their way to the retail channel. I checked the local price engine and found the following models as TRAY:
- Ryzen 2200G, 2600X, 2700X
But only one shop has the 2600X and 2700X and only 2 sell the 2200G. So it's not like there are tons of these CPUs in the market. Ironically, they also sell them for more than the retail counterpart: 2600X TRAY for EUR 277, 2700X for EUR 360.
