We have already seen various news and retail websites spill AMD Ryzen CPU pricing details. However, today we have some high credibility Ryzen pricing leaks from none other than Amazon. Overclock.net forum user 'iLeakStuff' shared some archived Amazon retail pages which feature AMD Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X liquid cooler bundles.

  • AMD YD170XBCAEWOF Ryzen 7 1700X Processor & Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, Black Bundle
  • AMD YD180XBCAEWOF Ryzen 7 1800X Processor & Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, Black Bundle

If you go to the above archive pages you can see the original Amazon listings which were live on 21st Feb at 9.30pm UTC. Of course the listings that are archived have been taken down by Amazon, for now.

The Amazon page reveals further details about these Ryzen CPUs such as release date, precision boost frequency, and more. These bundles were up for pre-order with an expected release date of 2nd March. Specs of the bundles were as below:

I read about the above Amazon listings on VideoCardz where they also reported that Canada-based MemoryExpress had very recently listed the same Ryzen 7 CPUs for sale. The pages have since been taken down but revealed that the Ryzen 7 1700X and 1800X are priced at CA$529 and CA$699 respectively, without any bundled coolers.

The Canadian retail source showed Ryzen packaging images, marketing blurb, and bullet pointed tech specs matching those from the Amazon listing tabulated above.

I think the 1700X is going to be the one for me. I want top of the range, but I don't think I need the 1800X
8 cores and 16 threads for less than £400….please be true!
Factoring in the price of a new motherboard and ram, I think I will go with the 1700X and a stock cooler instead (which I can always replace later)
Depending what the reviews are like I am very tempted with 1700X and probably pair it with a Noctua NH-D15, although could be tempted with a Corsair H100 or H110 but then I'd need to buy another case to fit it in.
