Good luck! I hope that when you are actually shopping for it that the place has them in stock. They have been hard to come by.

I really hope that it is a solid board and we all enjoy it's features! I won't really be using it for any work at all, LOL, mainly OC'ing/benchmarking, video encoding and gaming. I would have gotten the RVE and would have been just fine with it but was really drawn to the look of the board. I was getting tired of the red/black color scheme. The fact that the RVE's SATA ports are now red as well, really killed it for me. Too much red!! biggrin.gif

My reason for getting it, is the PCI-E lanes with only 5820K. Since i run a triple setup, and only really been held back by not having space for 4. Didnt want to go X79 because i have 4770K, and the PCIE lanes advantage was tiny.

As far as i can see they should come in stock, within the next 14days.

whistle.gif Shipping from CA to TN per the tracking number so the estimated delivery date for my board will be Monday the 6th, ugg. I hope that the driver drinks some red bull or 5 energy drinks or something! LOL I have a family vacation starting the 10th and I would like to at least know that I don't have any DOA's as well as a ball park idea of my silicon lottery results. rolleyes.gif

The WS boards have been in stock on newegg.ca for 5 days now. They must have gotten a bunch in. I should have my replacement board tomorrow or thursday.

I really hope that you get a good sample this time! I like to hear that the board that we've chosen is solid, especially considering the cost. Aside from that, it is your hard earned money and should be spent on a quality, reliable product regardless of cost, so I hope that you get a positive experience this time around! thumb.gif

Cheers! cheers.gif

My WS arrived yesterday. I've had nothing but problems getting this thing to install Windows 7. Finally got some progress today, but I can not get the eSata connectors to work.

Once you guys get your boards tell me if yours have the header for the fan extension card that comes with the Deluxe version? It should be white and right above the front panel connectors. In his video at Tek Syndicate, JJ advised this board would support that card and I've seen pictures of board with the header. My board came with out it. Let me know.

Thanks.
