    Ahh but you see, they NEED to buy it to moan about Intel being better. ;)

    You also need to look at the US/EU competitors too, I was told directly by ASRock through my IPC contact that it would be $249 weeks ago, so somewhere something went wrong on your end. :)

    That makes no sense. The 3800X will probably be the same.

    So it is safe to say the BIOS is a piece of **** at the moment?

    Dont usually go with this thought but I think there could be "fine wine" involved with these CPU's. Might be a little bit more in them with updates/bios improvements and RAM tuning too.

    Why is only the 3600 in stock and all the other CPU's are pre order for tomorrow?

    In their video the 9900k still wins in pretty much all the games they tested. Unless a few quid matters not sure why you would get the 3900x over a 9900k for gaming. All rounder though it’s nice.

    Any reviews say how performance is on x370 boards? Wondering if I should replace my asus x370 pro with a new x570 asrock Taichi as £240 ish is an ok price I think.

    I imagine we can expect some platform maturity and OS updates (Scheduling etc) as time goes on so the Zen2 would be the right choice going forward rather than the 9900k which has likely seen all of it's maturity with nowhere to go.

    Ordered x570 Taichi and 3800x elsewhere, should get them tuesday :) gives me enough time to do some benchies on my current rig to compare, should be a decent uprade.

    Yeh went for a 3600 and 5700XT in the end after seeing derbauer's video on overclocking not being great (opted against 3700X).

    I think I'll revisit the 3900X in 6 months when the price will have dropped a bit.
