The fleeting idea of wait for Ryzen 3 did cross my mind, but it's hard a sway away from what you know just works.

That Apex XI is still not retail in the US. Only via 3rd party from the EU.

Regarding RMA, Asus is unfortunately as bad as Gigabyte (at least in Belgium). You usually get a refurbished motherboard back after a couple of months with several issues, when the RMA is even accepted (I had a few RMAs refused although the brand new motherboard had very loud coil whine). My first z390 aorus master was defective and randomly rebooted; it also fed 1.35v+ to the 9900k with default settings (4.7ghz) while in reality the cpu was stable at [email protected] under prime 95 avx. The next maximus xi hero had a big coil whine from the VRMs even with c-state disabled which could be heard 5 meters away from the computer. I then received a refurbished motherboard from Asus (7 weeks waiting time and over 30€ in shipping fees from my own pocket) in exchange from the brand new defective one with a damaged socket. After threatening with legal action, the store finally gave me a brand new Asus motherboard which worked perfectly.

It's retail in Australia as well, $646AU, so about $450USD, it's about $200 more than the Gigabyte Aorus Master.

They just release the ROG Strix Matrix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. that's $3899AUD...

ugh, buy the time the APEX XI is retail in the US (and not price spiked) there will likely be other options/launches. I mean, I like playing with the Z370/390 series - very snappy stuff for sure. But HEDT is better suited for my needs (and afflictions! ). Was hard to lay off the 3647 socket stuff.

THat Tim KW pointed out out is good stuff. Lately, I've been using swiftech's tim-mate TIM2 and get better results and durability than I have with TGK, Gelid etc. Cheap too.

Funny you said that because I was tossing up whether to go back and revisit HEDT, I'm not gaming any where like I used to so who knows what might happen next HEDT generation

Hello,
I updated my BIOS to 1105, but it didn't update my ME firmware. Anyone know why ?

I also saw that on the M11E drivers page, there isn't anymore the link to download chipset drivers. Others Z390 board all have their chipset drivers.

Nevermind, fixed the problem with a fresh Windows 10 install, seems Windows 10 really sucks for cloning to another drive.
