QuestionWhen will you guys be receiving the next stock and is there a way to get notified or reserve one?
- Answer From past experienced drops, they seem to come in Tuesday or Wednesday between 10am - 1pm Eastern. So far it has been two back to back Tuesdays and it's every other week. When you see add to cart, just be patient and don't refresh.
QuestionWill the Wraith Prism Cooler found in previous Ryzen models be enough to cool the new chips?
- Answer AMD did spec the Wraith Prism cooler for use with the 3900X(same wattage) so it's doable, however, I would say it's less than optimal if you expect the full performance of the processor for any significant length of time.
QuestionI have the urge to build a new gaming machine based on the X570 chip set. Was looking at a 3rd Gen 3900X but I kinda like the idea of having a current gen When will these 4th Gen chips be in stock ??

QuestionWhen will Best Buy plan on having inventory back? Will they be setting a wish list and be calling people or are we out of luck on the 5900x series and no stock until the zen 4 sereies?
- Answer Given that raw components such as processors are not BB's bread and butter, they most likely don't get a large allotment. I'd be surprised if we are able to get one here. I have several sites that I check periodically during the day and they never show in stock either.
- Answer They do not. I offered to pay in advanced and they said they don't do waiting lists or prepays.
QuestionWill there be any stock this year to buy this? Looking to destroy Batman and need to upgrade my desktop, but inventory does not seem to exist anywhere,.

QuestionWill these ever be available again online or will Bestbuy.com keep allowing bots to purchase them?
