I'm waiting for my 3950x, will be running with 3600MHz RAM CAS 17. Each day the supplier changes the delivery date.... I did order at the 25th of Nov at exactly one minute past release time.....
It's out of stock everywhere except one store pushing it for 1100 euros..
cnt ... do you mind me asking where you sourced your 3600MHz RAM CAS 17 and what motherboard you settled on for your 3950x (whenever it is available?) I am also looking at this configuration.
I got myself the ASUS Prime X570-P. It apperently got the best VRMs in the price range, it's even as good as the ASUS Premium models. I don't want/need WIFI, USB-C or Thunderbolt. Only want stability and as quiet as possible, so this board got everything I need. The small chipset fan is also quite silent from what I have read.
Here's the Hardware Unboxed's thermal testing review:

Memory I ordered: G.Skill TridentZ Series DDR4 2x16 GB 3600 MHz/PC4-28800 CL17 (Model#: F4-3600C17Q-32GTZ) from It's on ASUS' tested Memory list for the motherboard.
Both and Newegg got them as well from what I can see. ... B01DQ5UGYU

Will recieve the memory tomorrow. Still waiting for the 3950x, 12th of Dec they say now.. :(
