Very happy to join the X299 masterrace 😁

I ordered the i7-7820X and ASRock X299 Taichi. Should get it by next wed-thu.

Most likely will be going with the 7820x or 7900x and an R6 APEX.

Kind of pissed the APEX won't have a 10G LAN built in but whatever. The R6 EXTREME is a bit flashy/gimmicky for me.

that's my beef with apex the 10Gb LAN. On one hand I can overclock higher with Apex and in another long term I can have 10Gb LAN.

Any reviews on the ROG board yet?
post #16 of 6012
I am liking the Prime X299-Deluxe which has Dual Gigabit LAN ports, 802.11AD WIFI, and the Thunderbolt EX-III card, (though I had dismal results with that card in my X99-Deluxe II), but that baby is almost $500. I have not seen pricing on the ROG version yet.

As for CPU, I would go with the 7900X as I refuse to buy another 28-lane CPU. So an upgrade to the X299 platform means $500+ for a MOBO, $1K for the CPU, and then $400 for G.Skill F4-3200C14Q-32GTZ or similar. Plus a new AIO or custom loop to cool the beast. So probably a $2.5K to $3k build by the time accessories are added.

There are 4 things holding me back (actually 5 if you consider money).

1 - Having to buy a 10-core CPU to get 44 PCIe lanes.
2 - Intel VROC non-sense. I am NOT going to buy Intel SSDs to set up a RAID array.
3 - TIM instead of Solder on the IHS.
4 - Thread-Ripper, though the jury is WAY out on that one.

WHY does Intel not do everything the way I think it should be?

I hear you.

but then again, even the 8 core CPU is a nice middle ground. It has more PCI lanes than an 1800x, quad channel memory, and I with a delid and even just an AIO it looks like they reach upto 5ghz.

Anyone have a ETA on Asus x299 Apex?? I really hate the idea buying a chip and not having a mobo available to use it in. Also, this new release has killed any resale value on a lot of the x chips.
