Might be interesting to someone who wants to build or upgrade a NAS/HTPC

Arlt Computer has several Renoir APU kits available and this one caught my eye: Aufrüstkit AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G (6x 3,7GHz) + 16GB RAM + ASUS ROG Strix B550-I Gaming Mainboard | ARLT Computer

Since I want at least 32 GB ECC RAM I called the hotline and asked if I can buy this bundle without the memory modules and, if yes, for how much. The basic answer is: As long as it is a kit and not a single CPU, you can buy it.

I got a quote for above kit sans the ram for 374,53€. If you go with best prices for the Asus ROG B550-I and the Noctua cooler that is quite a nice price (~141€) for the Ryzen 4650G. In fact, is is only marginally higher than for a Ryzen 3400G. The next "best" price would be like 232€ on ebay. The Asus ROG B550-I is a bit pricey but fits my needs perfectly. Unfortunately Artl has no good RAM options and all other ITX boards are a bit overpriced.

Yes, it's cheaper but you pay more for the CPU itself if you count up the components. The standard AMD box cpu cooler in the above kit is a dime a dozent. Anyway, I was about to get the Noctua L9a anyway and the Asus B550-I is not that much more expensive as other Mini-ITX boards with two m.2 slots.
