good luck on the hunt for the 5900x I have been hunting one for 5 months
I ordered a 5900X through Mike's Computers in BC and for the last 3 weeks I have been number 11 in the queue. I ordered around 9:30 Nov 5th, the day the chips were "available" and I believe they started taking orders at 9:00. Disappointing when I see other people get chips from other Canadian retailers, but since we are not supposed to travel I can't go to Victoria and order something in person at MemEx. No other sources for computer hardware on the island that I would pay. There might be a few independent operators but their prices are usually bad, really bad. All I can do is wait, and hope more people ahead of me find other chips and drop off the list!
