Not that it matters much, but when it comes to aesthetics, these Taichi boards are the most decent looking of the current x299 crop. I wanted Taichi, but ended up with Aorus Gaming 7 instead cause of 2 8-pins and probably better VRM heatsink. If this XE was available, literally a week before, i would buy this, cause unlike GB board its not fugly as hell :-D

Anyway, AsRock have only themselves to blame for a lost sale, if they did their job like they should in the first place, there would be no need for any XE updated version right now.

This sounds promising

Did you use X99 and a 6950 X? - Any comparisons

Glad to hear you seem happy enough

Is all the fuss about the other processors with 12, 14, 16 and 18 cores?

18 cores is another 8 on top of the ten which is a lot more heat

Does your turbo boot work properly? - I read it's 4.3 Ghz on all cores but isn't working correctly. Is this true? - BIOS issue? - Please elaborate - Thanks

This is the best way Asrock could say "F*CK OFF* to its customers, really great job! Bring out a motherboard (in this case, Taichi) and replace it within a couple of weeks with a better model costing the same and thus making the first Taichi almost worthless.
I can now easily sell mine as now I'm 100% sure there won't be a monoblock released for it.
Even though I need to hurry up as when XE hits the shelves I will have to ask 40-50% of what I paid for mine just to get rid of it.mad.gif

Already striked ASUS from the list for this kind of behaviour and approach to customers - releasing new 'updated' models every few weeks, now I can strike Asrock too, ridiculous!

Seems like Gigabyte/MSI/EVGA are the only companies now that don't do this mad.gif

In case someone was wondering if the normal Taichi can stand up 10+ cores? No problem, I run a 4.6GHz 7920X on mine.

To be perfectly fair, the normal X299 taichi is plenty capable unless you are running a 10 core CPU.

If you bought a MSI X299 SLI or Tomahawk board you would be in worse shape , the VRM mosfets are simply packed togther on the front and back.

If you had bought a Gigabyte X299 Gaming 3 it would have VRM overheat once you pass around 250W per elmor.

The problem is all the launch X299 boards generally aren't great when it comes to VRM temperatures. Engineering samples probably weren't clocked as high ; motherboard manufacturers clearly skimped out on the heatsinks.

Depends where you live smile.gif In the Netherlands neither Apex and the Extreme are available. High-end boards like Rampage or Asrock OC Formula are a total vaporware out here.

Don’t know about the rampage, but I’m pretty sure that’s why the apex took longer than though. They had to redesign the vrm heatsink. Look at the preview versions from a while ago and the retail release.

Just get if from Germany or the UK, they're plenty available over there.
