On Amazon... third party seller: https://smile.amazon.com/s?me=AO2BR967YZI9X&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Are these too good to be true?
For example:
- AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is ~$600 - Retail price is $750.
- AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is $250.
- AMD Ryzen 5 2600 is $70.
- and more.
 
Edited: These might be scams... shipping states they might take a month.  Maybe mods could delete this thread?

    I took a very quick look at the 3950X and since it doesn't come with a cooler I suspect it is an OEM cpu. However, that is just a guess. However with any purchase you make always make sure your purchase is protected in case of fraud. 

    Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    I guess you're protected by Amazon. I don't need one but I'm tempted to order the 2700.

    I would never order anything that says it will take over a month to ship unless it's a pre-order. Often you will find you have fraud insurance for a limited amount of time and I think Amazon won't do anything for something bought over a month ago. I can't say that it's a scam but when you look at the products sold by that vendor it's 5 AMD CPU's, floats for fishing, 3 sets of beads and one comb. Also they only have 24 reviews for the company and they are all surprisingly short and very positive.
     
    I didn't see where it said shipping would take a month but that is a big red flag of scams. I highly recommend looking at the company's products before placing an order since the fishing floats, beads and a comb doesn't seem like a place that sells CPU's.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    Long ship times normally mean they are shipped from China.
