    I’m in too deep already. I have kids in college making the term disposable income no longer part or my reality. That $25K I had to crap from thin air this morning is enough to make people cry. The real kicker is I constantly hear people complaining about how the US higher education system is unfair and how the financially challenged are cut out because they can never go. Yet last semester when we were at the bookstore out of the 30 or so students in there I was the only one paying, all the rest had some sort or card issued by what ever aide they are getting so it cost them zero for new books while I spent more than $1000 for used ones. Let me stop!*
    Enjoy your rig!! *You wanna adopt a couple of young adults?*

    MSRP I’ve been seeing is $8K for the chip leaked at CES but no one will know until it hits the shelves. Supposed to be able to hit 5GHz but you need a chiller for the 1.2KW heat load for just the chip!

    Sorry. I'm 72 and mine are long done. Not planning on an OC fest here, just shopping for pci lanes. I'll peruse SuperMicro's 3647 offerings too.

    you have a few years on me, 16 to be exact. Yes I was late getting started. My oldest was born when I was 38. *I’ll still let you adopt them though!

    So it's safe to say that these boards are not upgrades from the current Rampage VI Extreme, right? From what I see there is nothing special going on.

Dont care about loss of bling but do care about loss of PCIe slots and VROC and god only knows what else as there are no published specs. Matter of fact if this was the only ASUS board..........Id be buying Asrock or EVGA.
    Is the Sage board a good solution for gaming too ?

    Currently this side of the pond you'll be looking at or just north of £4k (OCUK Source).

    I guess I am the oddball here as I really like the looks of the Omega over the Extreme. IMO, it doesn't look "cheap" at all. They used black anodized aluminum for the covers and the VRMs look like what they should have been in the beginning. I'm not a huge gamer, so I don't want or need 3 GPUs. I have a feeling this will be a big step up from my X299 Strix.

    Design complexity is much less, aluminium is not expensive especially these pieces and at the end of the day its just relatively flat pieces...nothing hard to manufacture. The original Rampage VIE is much harder and more expensive if you know anything about production costs. There are changes on the PCB as well and the Start/Reset button is moved down (bad and awkward) and who knows what else lies beneath.

    And the VRMs should come with a Waterblock like the Maximus Formula XI that btw has mediocre VRMs with "golden handles"....

    You may like it of course but its nothing like the original and no other board is for that matter...maybe we got a unicorn and that's it....

    A Unicorn indeed as it seems that the Extreme is gone. So, other than the Omega, my only choice it the Prime Deluxe II (I am not a fan of all the white trim) and the Sage (too industrial looking for me).

    The loss of bling is the least of their worries. Its a downgrade in functionality and loss of components. Actually its almost a dead match for the Strix Gaming model. but even that board has more PCIe slots!! other difference is CPU power connections and the armor. Its certainly not much of an upgrade from even the bottom tier boards and a step down from the original RVIE and apex as well as the deluxe. As for the VRM heatsink they should have made it like the older formula where its set up for liquid instead of a 10K rpm baby fan thats gonna get gunked up and die in less than a year unless you get tired of hearing the tiny fan screaming like a banshee!
