Instead of chatting in other threads like Broadwell-E, I thought I'd start a thread where everything can be put.<br><br>
Myself I'm looking at getting the 7820x, still undecided on motherboard though.<br>
I was looking at the Strix, but the current reviews aren't promising, same with the Prime Deluxe.<br><br>
And yet MSI are leading the pack with the Carbon Pro's benchmark performances.<br><br>
A few reviews:<br>
7900x<br>

The one thing I love seeing is how the 7800x, 7820x and 7900x are killing the current top tier Ryzen 7 CPU's.<br><br>
But it seems everyone agrees that Intel did rush this launch a little.. <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif">

Preordered 7740x and going with rampage apex when that's avaialable. Every intention on upgrading at least to the 12. a lot of people saying it was rushed due to ryzen. But I'm not so sure this pic is from a year and a half ago. Seems to be right on time. Other thread got cleaned ? <img alt="lachen.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/lachen.gif"><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3064239/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="3064239" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/3064239/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a>

I wanted to preorder a CPU but none of the motherboards I'm considering is going to be released yet. I'm looking at EVGA dark and RVIE or Apex.

Same thing I'm running into. I want the RVIE or the Apex. I hate when I'm willing to hand my money over, but have to wait for availability.

Pre-ordered a 7820x and Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7. Hopefully they will be here by next Wednesday. The rest of the build is in the sig rig.

I'm looking for longevity and reliability.<br>
Been through 3 systems in at months where my wife is still on her 4790k bought from release.<br><br>
The 5820k/MSI Gaming 7 I bought was flaky and a poor overclocker.<br>
The 6900k/Strix kept killing itself and the 7700k I have now just doesn't have the grunt I'm used to since running HEDT machine.. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I had planned on keeping the 6900k but when 3 CPU's and 3 Strix's died one after another I gave up on x99.

These are my two choices also with a i9-7980ex. I am very happy with what I have now so I don't mind wIting. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

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

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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
There are 4 things holding me back (actually 5 if you consider money).<br><br>
1 - Having to buy a 10-core CPU to get 44 PCIe lanes.<br>
2 - Intel VROC non-sense. I am NOT going to buy Intel SSDs to set up a RAID array.<br>
3 - TIM instead of Solder on the IHS.<br>
4 - Thread-Ripper, though the jury is WAY out on that one.<br><br>
WHY does Intel not do everything the way I think it should be?

<br>
I hear you.<br><br>
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.
