I had two different etailers take my money for board and chip (3970x) only to have both cancel about a week after. Already had ram and two new nvme pcie4 drives. Waterblock for the chip. Sent it all back. Don't plan on trying again.

Maybe get a 10980xe or if Intel breaks on the price of the 3175x maybe that route.

It's all up in the air right now.

I jumped on the W-3175X wagon. I got the CPU and Asus Dominus Extreme off eBay used for a little lower price, althought it ended up costing a bit more than AMD TR 3970X+Zenith II locally due to the import taxes. But I was kinda drooling over these parts in the beginning of the year, and wanted to test it. One thing was that a lot of the Dominus mobos had a CPU00 code issue, but this one I got works out of the box.

And now I noticed I would need a new case as the Dominus will not even fit into my Phanteks Enthoo Primo which I like very much. And the rule at home is that 'it needs to be a white case'. Oh well...at least now I got a cool benching rig on my Dimastech bench.

i9-7980XE / Asus Rampage VI Extreme / Corsair Dominator Platinum 64 GB 3200 MHz CL16-18-18/ Palit RTX2080TI / Intel 750 NVME / Samsung 1TB / Corsair AX1500i / Phanteks Enthoo Primo / Asus PG279Q

Got an email from Newegg.ca this morning. 3970x in stock, so i said I will give it one more shot, lol. They took my money right away so see if i get shipping notice later this week. Maybe a late christmas for me.

B&H has a bunch in stock. The 10920x says "in stock" but the button has changed to "preorder" so i assume that one is gone. but they have 10900x in stock for sure.

Finally got my 10980xe. Proceeded to take apart my rig to upgrade to the EVGA x299 Dark with the 10980xe. In a very anticlimactic fashion the board did not even post to bios; gave out 3 beeps and post code 'dF'

When i bought the x299 Dark in October EVGA's website and forum said that the new Cascade Lake X CPUs will post to bios on these boards and at least enable bios flashing. I guess perhaps the board i got shipped had an even older bios where this wasn't even possible?

After getting in touch with EVGA support they did confirm some "very very few" x299 Dark boards have this issue, and will send a replacement BIOS chip with newest firmware already loaded for me to swap.

So i guess still more waiting for me to freaking run this accursed 10980xe! /sigh

^Interesting - I didn't see any in stock at B&H.. but of course I cancelled my pre-order and returned all my X299 parts since I thought the CPU won't be available until Feb. 2020.

They sold out very quickly. No telling how many were in stock. 10? 100? 1000?

Must've been. I stuck it out with my pre-order and received the CPU on Tuesday the 24th of December so i guess it took them little over 3 weeks to receive whatever number of the CPUs that they got on initial supply.
