swapped in a 3700x to better represent what zen 3 prices will likely be. waiting is a good idea if youre also waiting on a 3070, zen 3 should drop zen 2 prices and offer good value themselves. the b450-a pro max is identical to the tomahawk max, just looks a bit different and has 1 different connection on the back IO. if youre not set on gskill rgb, crucial's dimms overclock very well as they are e-die while being cheaper. 3600c16 under 1.4v is a common overclock for their 8gb sticks, which is the sweet spot for price to performance on zen 2. swapped the sata m.2 for nvme at the same price. the p400a digital is kickass and thus out of stock often, usually about 100 bucks and has great airflow and the usual things, plus rgb. the phanteks amp is a rebadged seasonic focus plus, great unit for a decent price and gold rated. 


topics i need help on:

Spoiler

 

 

my "oops i bought intel right before zen 3 releases" build

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (placeholder)

GPU: Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme (also placeholder), deshroud w/ generic 1200rpm 120mm fans x2, stock bios 130% power, no voltage offset: +70 core +400 mem 

Memory: 2x16gb GSkill Trident Z RGB 3600C16, 14-15-30-288@1.45v

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S w/ white chromax bling
OS Drive: Samsung PM981 1tb (OEM 970 Evo)

Backup Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB

PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W w/ black/white Cablemod extensions

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

looks good but GL getting that 3070 i have been trying to get a 3080 since launch and i thing the 3070 will be in higher demand.

That's not completely right. The reason why nobody could get a 3080 is because of bots. It has NOTHING to do with demand. Bots won't bother with the 3070 though since it's mid range and people who buy a 3070 are on a budget. They're not gonna pay twice the price on ebay so there won't be many bots if any.
