Long time lurker first time posting I believe. I am a couple of weeks away from finishing my new homelab server build and I had decided on a Xeon E5-1650 v3 as the center piece to my build. I had this build all spec out a couple of months ago and have been getting parts over the time, just waiting for my tax refund to finish off the bigger items. Today I was double checking pricing on the remaining items only to have noticed that a lot of the traditional PC part stores are either running out or out of stock. Any word on why? We are smacked dab in the middle of a product cycle so I would expect that this part should be readily available. I haven't heard of any manufacturing issues either. Just curious if anyone would have some incite.
Thanks and keep on the good fight people!
