rounding up the build and having some questions now..

build discussed so far:
CPU - AMD RYZEN 7 2700 8-Core 3.2 GHz ($375.49 - Newegg, $648 + MB from PC themes)
MB - MSI B450I GAMING PLUS AC Mini ITX ($187.43 - Newegg)
RAM - G.SKILL Sniper X Series 32GB DDR4 3000 288-PIN ($249.09 - Newegg | limited lifetime warranty)
Casing - Thermaltake Core V1 ($79 - PC Themes/Lazada)
PSU - Superflower Leadex II Gold 650W ($139 - Lazada | 5 years warranty)

1) From your suggested items, seems like some items like MB, CPU, RAM are cheaper in newegg, but no mention of warranty for MB and CPU.. I guess it might be harder to RMA as there's no local warranty but RAM is another story with limited lifetime warranty
2) What should I be concerned with other than warranty if I buy CPU + MB from newegg vs local shops?
3) How does Superflower fare against Seasonic in terms of performance if Superflower is the mercedes of PSU? In my previous build, my PSU of FSP 80+ Platinum 650W broke down at the last year (8 or 10 years of warranty). The warranty was useful for me to RMA and then sell it.
4) G.SKILL Sniper X Series 32GB DDR4 3000 - I looked at some of the performance benchmark of 3000 vs 3600, it looks like there is not much incentive to spend more money for the better model right?
5) Can I switch out the MB to an asus one when they are currently having a lucky draw?
6) Having this build ready, the last question will be whether to wait for the next gen Ryzen of 7nm coming out this year right?
1. For those items, cpu should be the easiest as it does have international warranty. Just drop an email to amd and they will advise you on the steps. Ram and motherboard, you would need to ship to US for RMA after contacting the Brand's support. Some might not entertain buyers from outside US.

2. Bad handling of products by courier

3. For this particular model, is like BMW?

4. Yes. 3000/3200mhz is the sweet spot for ram speed and cost

5. Only for local Asus board. MSI boards are way better though

6. If you can wait, why not?
