    Did Newegg sell out their known incoming quantity of boards as Pre-Orders in 48hours? OR did they simply change the purchasing status?

    Who knows right?

    Did anyone grab a pre-order?

    Just look how nice the Z790 Apex accessory kit is. No silly stickers or coasters or key chains.

    Because we are ADULT computer enthusiasts - who only act like babies sometimes.

    And you get a DDR5 fan and mount with noise isolation pads, cool.

    And a very special black box.

    Sup kvarq?

    Nice video from der8auer! Can tell the board Roman is using is an Engineering Sample and not retail - the rear I/O top shield is black, retail is white.



    My build is very work specific, it's a typewriter build, water-cooled, lol. So comfortable keyboards are extremely important for working long hours.

    Already using this HHKB Hybrid Type S keyboard in the snow white color (below) long before the Z790 Apex was announced in white.

    Yet with the advent of the white PCB and (partially) powdercoated white heatsinks with the new Z790 Apex board, I grabbed this HHKB Hybrid Type S SNOW (blank) keyboard yesterday - will be here next week.

    Keycaps are blank, even the board is unbranded, lol. Super-Excited man!

    Yes I realize, I could complete my work with a $349 HP or DELL computer or laptop, but I LOVE this hobby and the astonishing speeds achievable with the ROG Apex boards added to the overall work equation.

    Awsome...Guys. Waiting for my Z790 APEX from Newegg, Did a Pre-Order. So hope It ships after Nov 30th....

    Using;
    Intel i7-13700KF
    T-Force Delta DDR5 32GB 7200 FF3D523G7200HC34ADC01 Memory. Maybe can do 7400 to 7600 without to much trouble.

    I'm just tried of buying parts for the last few year's without much success in a moderate overclock.... No matter how much I've read on the these forums.
