    I'm having problems finding it anywhere that doesn't have a refurbished board or charging double or tripple the price.

    That's why I just went ahead and got the Omega. B&H had a (supposedly) new one in stock a while back, $649. I just decided $100 more wasn't all that much compared to what the rest of a HEDT rig runs these days. Almost every other component (or component group in like the water cooling loop) cost more - CPU/GPU/RAM all cost more than $750. PSU cost less, case cost less. That's about it.

    Mine has been very well behaved, I haven't had a single flaw that I can think of. The board diagram in the manual is a mess, but I doubt this is the very first board most people ever purchase so most can still navigate the connections.

    OK one thing that I didn't like: The M.2_1 despite having the lower number (closer to the metal, you'd think) is the PCH M.2 slot. M.2_2 is the CPU M.2 slot and seems to be about 10% faster in the quick Crystal Disk Mark comparison (identical new drives in both in my case). At least I think that's correct. These drives are so fast that I'll probably never notice 10%, I guess that's what I get for thinking the lower number slot would be the faster choice.

    Even bone stock no OC this 7980XE just wipes the floor with the 4.6Ghz OC 5960X in the RVE in multithreaded stuff.

    I recently purchased a complete Apex package on Ebay for $350.
    Put 32GB and a 9900x on it for my son. It's living in a Thermaltake View 91 case at his house running great.

    I have a brand new Rampage vi Extreme for sale. I bought it days before the omega was announced and as soon as it was I wanted that instead so instead of dealing with the return I figured I just sell it. Its on ebay my user name is tp624.

    Now if I can figure out why my system is freezing when booting form the Windows 10 USB stick. Sometimes with a Watchdog error, sometimes just freezing. If it wasn't for Extreme selling out literally as i was trying to order it from my local store I would still be on that.

    My Extreme board with the bent pin freezes as well, but at least it lets me boot into Windows.

    For reference I am trying to use it with:

    G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800)
    Intel Core i7-9800X Skylake X 8-Core 3.8 GHz (4.4 GHz Turbo) LGA 2066 165W BX80673I79800X
    SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2 2280 500GB PCIe Gen3. X4, NVMe 1.3 64L V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    What I had rock stable out of the box with the Extreme was:

    G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800)
    Intel Core i7-7800X Skylake-X 6-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 2066 140W BX80673I77800X Desktop Processor
    SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2 2280 500GB PCIe Gen3. X4, NVMe 1.3 64L V-NAND 3-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    I was running it on just XMP. But on the Omega I can't get it stable on regular or XMP, even with all the ethernet stuff turned off.

    Remove XMP in order to install the OS.

    From the above, it looks like you're using a different CPU between configurations, so tuning can be needed. Try Maximus Tweak Modes as well as tuning VCCIO and VCCSA.

    For 3600, try in the region of 0.900 and 1.1v VCCSA and 1.05-1.15 VCCIO.

    I am not running Vroc, because I see no benefits in using it. I have a NVMe from which I boot my OS and two NVMe running in RAID0 (via Storage Spaces before I had them running as Stripe Volume via Disk Management). Performance wise I see no ground breaking differences and seeing the hassle with license dongles and so on, I can life with this 100% working method.

    You can run two GPUs in PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX16_2 and they will both run in PCI Express x16 as long as PCIEX16_3 stays unpopulated. If you use PCIEX16_3, both 2 and 3 will switch to PCIe x8. PCIEX16_1 is always x16.

    You can put the 4 NVMe in the on board and DIMM M.2 sockets. M2_1 gets it's lanes from the PCH, while the other sockets all get their lanes directly from the CPU. I have no idea which of those could be run in Vroc.

    Hi guys,
    I have 2x Samsung 970 Pro NV disks and I want to create a RAID0. I have installed one (with adapter) in PCIE X4 port and the other in DIMM 2 slot.
    Is it possible to put them in RAID 0 configuration? What I have to set in bios? Thank you very much!

    One thing I have noticed when overclocking with this board is that LLC settings seem a little "weaker" than those on my old Strix board. On the Strix, I had it set to 6 and vccin would not move from my set value of 1.95V. With the Omega, with a setting of 7, vccin still drops from 1.95 to 1.92 under load. On level 6, it would drop a lot more than that ( ~1,87) which caused blue screens. So far on 7, everything seems fine, but I would expect this board to perform a little better than that. I don't like running LLC so close to max. Any suggestions?
