    I havent heard of plans to sell the graphics card bracket separately, so I wouldn't count on it.

    Agreed. Certainly something more than what we had before. Except the release date of course.

    Ya never know. If that is correct perhaps we will get a chance to pre-order it prior.

    So more likely it will be September. No wonder they wouldn't provide an availability date. So at least 3 more weeks. That's very disappointing.

    Personally hoping by Christmas....

    Setting my sights low so I am not disappointed. I think that is what Raja is attempting to teach us.

    I would imagine there is a date but Raja is obviously not able to disclose it or perhaps he has not been told the date.

    To quote someone we all know...."We are another day closer"

    Those AA meetings are starting to pay dividends.

    I really think that "hoping by Christmas" is way too pessimistic. Instead of thinking in terms of "another day closer", or "another hour closer", to the unknown release date, think of it as "another week closer" for the next few weeks. But you don't have to view it as "another month closer until Christmas"

    If this was a gambling casino, I would place all my bets on the Apex/Extreme being released somewhere between August 28 (when the 12-core i9-7920X is released) and September 25 (when the 14/16/18C i9s are released). Although I would be really happy if the release date was sooner, I seriously doubt either mobo will be released during the next two weeks in August, for the following three reasons:

    1) The Asus Middle East press release that I mentioned in my previous post mentioned "First Week of September", and it was the first time that I saw a date attached to an Asus press release, instead of various dates being posted on retailers' sites, and instead of last week's announcements on tech-reporting websites where they just said "will be available soon".

    2) Since both mobos' release dates have already slid way past the previously announced July dates, with Intel's higher-core i9s being released in September, it would help the Asus engineers if they delayed the mobos' release long enough to receive some final, or near-final, engineering samples of the flagship i9-7980XE to test with. That is how you ensure there are no surprises with VRM, temperature, and voltage issues, instead of just testing with the i9-7900X and assuming everything should work fine with 8 more cores. Just as Intel's 8-core i7-7820X beats the 8-core Ryzen 7 1800X in nearly all benchmarks, sometimes by a wide margin, I imagine that Intel will be feverishly tweaking their 16C/18C CPUs for the next four weeks to race past the Threadripper 1950X. And speaking of Threadripper, I have already read several comments where people complained and were jealous that the X299 Extreme looks a lot better than the X399 Zenith Extreme.

    3) Perhaps it was not a coincidence that Asus announced their Apex/Extreme this past week at the same time as Intel announced their other i9 CPUs, and Asus will also synchronize the release of the mobos with the CPUs in September. The initial red-hot surge of sales of the i7-7800X, i7-7820X, and i9-7900X has now subsided and most retailers now have a plentiful supply. As I mentioned in my previous post, if Asus released their Rampage mobos earlier in August, that could cannibalize sales of the 12-core i9-7920X because many users would buy the i9-7900X instead of waiting for the i9-7920X. And Intel's profit margins increase as you go up to their 14C, 16C, and 18C CPUs. I do hope that Intel uses SOLDER for their 165W 14C/16C/18C CPUs, or they will catch more flak for using paste on an 18-core $2000 CPU!

    I have no insider information, so these are all just speculations. Asus still has not released their X299-WS workstation model, and ASRock is rumored to be releasing their X299 OC Formula that could compete with the Apex. I would not be surprised if Gigabyte releases another higher-flagship X299 mobo later for Intel's mega-core i9s, bumping up their power stages from 50 to 60 amps like those used by Asus, MSI, and ASRock. And it would be interesting if MSI released an X299 Godlike mobo later with better power stages, especially if it was styled like the Z270 Godlike Gaming mobo that they briefly announced in May, but have not released.

    I have been building and tinkering with PCs since the mid-1980s, and I cannot recall a previous 12-month period where so many new CPUs, chipsets, and mobos have been flooding the market, regardless of which CPU and mobo brand you buy and what your budget is. Nothing previously even comes close. AMD's competition is great for waking up Intel.

    One comment about the indium metal plating that is used on the Extreme's "armor" around the PCIe and I/O areas... Indium is a VERY soft metal. Indium is four times softer than lead and about twice as soft as the alloys used in solder. And if you have experience with a soldering iron, indium also easily melts quicker than solder. You can melt indium just by pressing it onto a hot metal or glass plate heated to about 300 degrees-F and it will form a lovely reflective mirrored thin foil, which makes it an ideal metal for sputter deposition in a vacuum to form the mirrored plating on the ROG armor. But I wonder how easy the ROG armor can be scratched because the thin metal layer is so soft and also very thin, either due to brushing your fingernails across the surface or by rubbing it too much with cleaning cloths, especially if the plating does not have an additional layer of protective clear coating on top. If Raja has a pre-release Extreme mobo, perhaps he can try brushing the edges of his fingernails across the armor surface as a test? The Extreme's User Manual does not mention it, but I think we should treat the mirror "armor" with extra care to prevent scratches.
