    Thats not such a problem on UK Amazon, at least I've never ran in to it.

    But I do love Amazon's returns, this latest process has been super quick.

    Thanks, I have the Asus Maximus VIII Hero Alpha in my second PC and I really like the solid build quality of their products.
    I moved from Asus Hero to a Code X to Gigabyte Master this last round because Asus jacked their prices and didn't provide the better VRM, and Ihe Apex Z390 never materialized in the US. Asus has superior BIOS for overclocking both CPU and especially memory, regardless of the look of the UEFI, which I would say they are about the same. I have got by fine with the Gigabyte though , and there are things I like better in the Gigabyte.

    Enjoy your new system!

    I agree with you on the BIOS. I found the Aorus one limiting and when I enabled XMP, Windows would BSoD. Hopefully the Asus wont be doing that. I shall install Windows with the RAM at default speeds anyway.

    Hi,
    Yeah nice
    I found out someone has a chip from the same batch as mine
    Asus or intel or both came up with SP prediction feature to say what the combo or chip is rated
    World record was a SP 117
    Our chips batch SP is 110 10900k batch # X016E724 hopefully it will be the same or better
    There have been many well under 100 over here if anyone wants to read a little

    That's a nice board Thrash. Just finished watching this preview video. Feature rich like my Aorus Z390 Xtreme... and just as expensive. What are you putting in it?

    I just got myself a nice birthday gift with the help of my boss. He willingly bought a MacMini off me that he didn't need so I could get a RTX 2060 KO for myself. Can't wait for it to arrive Tuesday. This is my first "modern: GPU ever.

    Never had that happen and both systems in my specs are on Gigabyte Aorus boards with XMP enabled. In fact I've never had an issue with any XMP capable Gigabyte board I own (5).
