I decked out a corsair case with 6 (4 case, 2 AIO) of these and was not disappointed at all with the performance and/or sound profile, especially at this price.

Well, I know it's not the latest and the greatest, but it seemed a good deal to me and a decent upgrade that will last me for several years I'd say. Canada Computers had a bundle deal on with stock at the local store for the following:

- 5900X
- ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING WIFI II, and
- TeamGroup T-FORCE VULCAN Z 64GB (2x32GB) DDR4 3200MHz CL16 (thanks for feedback in my other thread!)

for $780.84 taxes in. Ordered, don't have it yet, but I have some PC rebuilding in my future! And it is kind of nice to have made a decision and stop thinking about upgrading! ;)
Canada Computers, on their site and AMD's site, identifies that they are a retailer that has the free Company of Heroes 3 game with the 5000 series CPU purchase.

I haven't opened the box yet, so maybe there is a code or coupon in the box and that will answer this question. Just wondered if anyone has claimed something like this before and knows the process.

No first hand experience, but I believe I read on redflagdeals that someone said it was on the receipt...maybe...

I don't recall which game I had gotten a code for but it was basically like a steam key. Type code into whatever game launcher system the game is a part of and game is now tied to your account.

Right. I just need to find the code :) Some articles I read said it was also going to be linked to the hardware purchased being installed, and there may be a verification tool that has to run to confirm that.

I've seen some mixed reviews about the third one. I've never played any, so I'm happy to take this one for free... sort of ;)

The 1st game had sooooo much potential the be in the ranks of StarCraft and a few others. There was a counter for both sides for any situation. The only part they got wrong was unit upgradable leveling system for Axis where as Allied had earn it via multiple battle field victories.

The 2nd edition was horrible with too many factions, poor counters which turned into terrible game play. I would looooove to see the 3rd one be awesome again.

Well, that's harder to answer than I expected. Sites the sell it don't identify dual or single rank, and an answer by what appears to be TeamGroup on Amazon.com is rather cryptic and says it could be either? So I guess I'll have to install and see. I think that is accessible info in CPU-Z?
One more comment on this and then I'll stop poluting the What's Your Latest Purchase thread. Still no luck confirming dual or single rank. I made my way into the bowls of the TeamGroup website and found the RAM, even downloaded the related PDF for specs, and nothing there mentions the rank spec.

I did find one seller site, memoryc.com (never heard of it before) listing the 32GB kit (2x16GB) of the same RAM as "Dual Channel" in their description, so perhaps the increases the odds of the larger 64GB kit being dual rank, but I can't confirm it in anything official from the company.

So I'll have to wait and see what it ends up being when things are up and running.
