    Ive been waiting 2 months for RIVEB what other motherboards is there

    I have been waiting 2 months for my ordered Rampage IV Black Edition it keeps getting delayed I know I might have to wait up to another month so instead of waiting maybe I should get another motherboard, I realy like the RIVEB but what is a great board that is as good as the RIVEB? What about the Asus X79 Deluxe, im going to use 64GB ram, i7 4930K cpu and one GTX Titan 6GB. I will be using this for rendering and gaming I have been told that Gigabyte boards arnt to good - why? I want to stay away from boards that have some sort of built in fan to cool the north/south bridge like the Asus Sabertooth.

    I am buying my RIVEB from Australia and the option to buy elsewhere like ebay from oversees is something I cant do as the ones on ebay want an extra $400 to $500 they sure saw the demand and buying curve ahead of everyone they must be making some good money even at those high prices I almost thought about getting one but it would take about a month to get here - for me not worth it.

    hmm, http://www.staticice.com.au/ is one i check
    and shopbot is another.... yeah I'm in the same boat,
    like to upgrade only cause its the latest and greatest..
    mind you, my formular x79 is serving me well
    ebay has had some for like the $500 mark, and shipping
    anywhere between $60 to $100, which is probablly the biggest
    killer, I would be patient if i was you......

    Yes two months ago it was sometime after Christmas then a bit later then the 28th now the 4th but they were very helpful to get back to me on this Monday the 3rd to tell me how long it will be, something about Asus or their supplier maybe one in the same.

    I wish they would hurry up ....... I'm in no rush anyway tbh, if I do buy this motherboard it
    will be a long period build like perhaps over 3 months, I wonder if they are waiting
    to get more pre-orders first, but I am sure they would know there are allot of roger's
    down under .........

    The only thing I can think of mate, is either it's taking longer to be shipped by boat, or, the boards are being held up in Customs.

    I know that when I made the order for the mobo and parts that there is other people in line like me waiting in turn but what I don't understand is why cant scorptec and other computer shops just order all the boards they need and perhaps a few extra for when people buy them so no one has to wait?
