    Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Any one have any idea of when this will be released or pricing? I imagine it'll be soon since the 5000 series CPUs launch in less than a month.

    Crosshair VIII Hero Dark vs Hero WIFI

    The only functional difference I see between the Crosshair VIII Hero WIFI and the Crosshair VIII Hero Dark is the former has a chipset fan and the latter has a passive system with a heat pipe and heat sinks. Is that the only difference?

    Yes CPU power delivery on original Hero there are 60A power stage on new are 90A. So it has better VRM

    1st or 2nd week in November for $399. Glad to see it released, but kinda sucks it will miss launch.

    I waited to do a Ryzen build until the 5000 series was released. I was going to buy a CH-Viii Hero WiFi but decided to wait until I could actually buy a Vermeer processor so I wouild be in the easy return window if the board had a problem. Now I am glad I waited. I really did not want a chipset fan and everyone knows 90A is better than 60A. I just hope I don't have to wait weeks and weeks (and weeks) to get my hands on a Ryzen 5900X and a CH-Viii Dark Hero. I'm sure the bots will be busy, IT's getting ridiculous!!
