It's the 16 core, 2950X. Not interested in the new one.

It was on a decent sale already, and availability is getting slim. Doubt it will drop much more on Black Friday. New Threadripper isn't under consideration since that's more than I need, and due to the entry price.

Bottom line: when you're build-horny, you buy things. Saving a few bucks here and there doesn't matter much. I've been debating this for months. Saving a few bucks on sale isn't worth the hassle for me.
