That is a third party seller on Newegg, hopefully not the final retail price

Omg with built in water cooling block.
I might have to get back into the water cooling game!

So is it out or not? I've already ordered one from https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-MAX9EXT. Magically 4 days AFTER I've ordered it, it's out of stock. We will see. I will keep you posted.

Yep, $630 on the egg and by the egg. Just saw an amazon re seller with a jacked price as well. Unfortunately every time new hardware is released that is highly sought after the gougers always seem to source it first. Often if you are not fast enough the reputable sources will have their entire inventory emptied with one order then you see a listing with a substantial price increase the next day on fleabay.

I may have gone the $630 but the late release well behind the others is going to have an impact on sales. Im sure Im not alone in buying a formula and not going to entertain yanking it out to gain some fan headers I wont use, I block I prefer not to be locked in to, and the only thing Im really interested in, the second bios rom.

I actually bought one off Newegg and it's a beast. I booted it with an air cooler just to burn in a cpu for this build as the watercooling parts come in but this thing really is a monster for a water cooling build. I'm excited to get started!

Mine has shipped and is arriving on monday. I am super excited to use this motherboard, this will be my 6th asus board.

Here's a look at what I finally got finished up. 7700k@5.1, 32gb Trident Z RBG, 1tb 960 evo m.2, 2tb evo 850, 1080ti.

The cpu and gpu are on independent 420mm loops and run silent. I love the Tower 900 for watercooling but it is enormous, I doubt it would fit under most desks.

The led strips just mag mount to the case and they're chained up to the Aura connector on the motherboard so it's all controlled via the motherboard and can sync up with anything I do there.

This was a super fun build!
