Don't think that's a great deal for that price. Do you really need a Threadripper, though? The new AMD CPUs will feature more cores and will run on less expensive motherboards.

That's not proven yet for the more core part, and I doubt AMD would cut into their TR funds

That's kinda what I was thinking, but the huge discount had me interested. Lol.

Well, either way, the 3000 series is probably going to be a huge upgrade over my i5-3570k.

 

Plus, we can all dream.

Unless you're doing pro work it's not worth it.  I'd go for an 8th/9th gen i7 or a 2700/x unless you can wait for zen 2 this summer.  This CPU is designed for rendering and other pro work.  But, for the price, it isn't bad.

The plan is to wait for zen 2 + benchmarks.

 

I've lived for 6ish years with this 3570k... I can wait a few more months.
