I'm also considering a bundle from a competitor as those appear in stock. I need to do a build for my daughter anyway so might be the easiest way to kill two birds...
yeah exactly killing to birds with one stone. think will wait to end of the month and see what the the intel chip is like and if its good i might just go for that. fed up of waiting now for mobo and cpu.

happy days so be getting one of those ordered then. I am looking at Seasonic 100w titanium but not in stock till may

Mine arrived earlier this week, but not opened yet since waiting for CPU still. Based on the weight of the package, I think it has bricks in it! Essentially a Seasonic, so I'm optimistic that quality will be good.

When will OCUK be dropping some or taking preorders anybody know? A friend is after a 5900x for a build got the rest... A 3D printed type drop for forum members for CPU's would be good.

I mean any information from OC would be good at this point. I would even be happy with just we are awaiting news or have no dev date, but not posting an update on their Forum Post since Jan 5th is just poor customer service I feel.

We just have to be patient and assume that no news means they don't have any more information from their suppliers. AMD will hopefully get on top of their stock issues soon!

What's going on with the 5600x pricing lately? It's £350 at many places, but the 5800x is still ~£400.

Would make sense if they'd both gone up, but seems only the 6-core has.

Must be some insane margins on that part now.

OCUK have them @ £330 currently.

Lowest I’ve found this weekend is £268

@Gibbo for your main thread sticky post at top of this forum, any update on potential arrival of stock for 5900 and 5950?
Additionally any idea on stock for radeon GFX crads?

Thanks.

Well you were lucky to get it £60 more than MSRP, earlier in the day they were selling some at another retailer for £650, that's £120 more than MSRP and they sold out super quick.

Been out the PC hardware game for about 12 months dealing with stuff. Came back to upgrade.

they stayed up for a good 30 minutes, which in the age of bots and scalpers and bots is an eternity. hopefully that sort of pricing doesn't become normal.
