    The 3700x is $259.99 USD, by the time you convert it to NZD add forward shipping and GST you save about $40 off the cheapest price here - I personally couldn't be arsed for that.

    If you are adding on the discounts with MOBO etc it might become more worthwhile.Though unlike international retailers like Amazon, potential warranty returns are going to most likely wipe out that saving by the time you pay shipping twice again.

    $260US would have been over the $400 threshold anyway, so it would actually be cheaper now.

    Phanteks TC14PE CPU Cooler Blue Edition w/ 2x 140mm Blue Fan - $58 @PBTech

    Excellent cooler for the price if you have the space for it.

    It's huge. mm tight fit in my case.

    Doesn't actually cool my 8700 any more than my hyper 212 but it's silent.

    I ended up turning it so it's got a 120mm fan over the ram pushing in and the 140mm in the middle. Both running off the cpu header on splitter. Works just fine.

    No AM4 compatibility?

    Manufacturer site says yes, but whether there are different revisions, you'd have to look into it. I looked it up previously as figured they were selling them cheap as no one is buying Intel anymore. But it lists AM4, so that theory was debunked.

    It does support AM4 just the title only lists intel sockets.
    They are sold out now though.

    The specs listing on the page only lists up to AM3/AM3+ not AM4. It is likely older stock that does not have an AM4 bracket and hence why it was on clearance.

    What is the bet that people purchased one unaware of the lack of AM4 support or the actual size of the cooler? I'm not sure how many people out there are still running full sized tower cases these days...

    All the reviews I found about it were around 2011-2012, so its a fairly old thing.

    Man MicroCenter over in the U.S is doing some crazy deals for Ryzen CPU's atm. For instance there is the 3700x for $250 and 3800x for $270, 3600x for just $160. And just about every CPU in the ryzen family is getting discounted and some are sold at half price. And you get even more discount on the CPU price if you combo it with a mobo and RAM.
    Worth the youshop shipping?

    Buyer beware -HP's description says "blue" switches and "red" switches NOT Cherry MX Blue or Cherry MX Red. In other words they are cheap knockoff switches.

    I'll have a look, but PB links say Cherry.

    That sequencer looks real gamer and not in a subtle way.

    I don't game too often but I like the volume control (until YouTube equalises its videos I'm constantly turning the volume up and down) and big space bar.

    Also the RGB backlights mean I can turn them all to a non-offensive colour like red, or off. My current keyboard is white backlit and so bright that it bothers me across the room if I'm watching something on the TV and my computer is on.

    And a number pad is mandatory.

    Lame, but ah well, I only know Cherry because they were first, I can't imagine the non-Cherry's are ghastly. I just want clicky and the right amount of resistance.

    You can get genuine Cherry mechanical switches for the same money though (admittedly without the RGB but still):

    Why would I, though? Are Cherry's actually better? Or just better known? I wanted them because I knew them.

    It also doesn't have the volume control or the big space bar. It has none of the features I bought the more expensive one for. If removing all the features I wanted, I can get the non-Cherry ones for much less money.

    Or Red non-Cherry switches for less than half the price.

    Looked it up, looks like they're LK switches as the Sequencer has "optical mechanical switches". At first I thought Razer but they only have purple and red.
