[Memory Express] Ryzen 3600 + ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F $399.99

https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/BDL_MM00001417

In 15 seconds of searching the cheapest I could find the board was $146 back in December at Amazon.
Cheapest I could find the CPU was early August at Mike's for $250.
If you have your requisite RFD issued time machine this deal is terrible, but if yours is broken there's a $4 "my time machine is broken tax".

I know nothing about the board outside of the fact that it has Intel LAN which is basically about the only thing I care about because screw you Realtek.
Also 4x RAM slots which is overkill since no one is going to run 64GB except me.
2x M.2 too.

I'm really hoping that since it's being sold as a bundle that they've already flashed the BIOS to support the 3600.

Full specs:

I bought one. Let's hear reasons on why I should cancel.
Gonna buy a pair T-FORCE VULCAN Z 32GB 3000MHz as well probably since Mike's has it for $155.

Good deal, but board has been cheaper

It's been $125 a couple of times at newegg

Very confusing specs.

The picture shows:

Multi-GPU CFX support
2 x PCIe 3.0 x 16
(supports x 16, x8/x4)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x 16
(at x4 mode)
3 x PCIe 2.0 x 1

however, the B450 specs show:
AMD B450 chipset
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (max at x4 mode) *1
3 x PCIe 2.0 x1

I think this board would be better utilized if it was an x470 chipset.

great combo price though ... I think only valid for today ...

Ryzen 5 3600 is $280 at Amazon, this would make the motherboard $119.

Ryzen 3600 is available for $265 at the smaller retailers but they charge shipping fees and returns aren't as customer friendly..

The CPU provides 1 x PCIe 3.0 x 16 on top of the chipset, but yes it is confusing lol.

Good deal OP. I was looking at this and kicking myself for getting the Prime x470. Could've saved myself some money with this board instead.
