    In the video can anyone make out if he says "September" or "end of September" ?

    I think he said "in September". Basically, he avoided the question and meant that it will be before October.

    I am Chinese myself, born in Taiwan, so I am very accustomed to hearing Chinese people speak English. Chinese was my first language, but now I speak it with a slight foreign accent when visiting Asia. English was my second language, but everyone always assume I was born in the U.S. because I speak English with no detectable accent.

    I actually have a confirmation from Amazon UK that it will be shipped on the 4th of September. Was confirmed twice via the help chat.

    How do you, or Amazon UK, define "shipped on"? Did Amazon UK state that they will begin shipping pre-orders to customers on Sep 4? Or did A.UK mention that they were expecting a shipment to their warehouse at the start of next week? These little nuances of language can offset actual in-stock date by at least a full week. A.UK's site still just says "Order now and we'll deliver when available", which is what all other sites say. Both Amazon U.S. and U.K. usually explicitly state a ship date on the product listing if they have a confirmed delivery at their fulfillment centers.

    They guaranteed me that it will be shipped to us customers at the 4th of September. So I would normally receive it the 7th here in the Netherlands from them.

    Okay, cool!

    I just wondered why they do not mention that on their product listing, which is what they always seem to do on all their Amazon sites.

    For example, here is an "Destiny 2 Amazon Steelbook Exclusive" where Amazon UK explicitly states: "This item will be released on September 6, 2017. Pre-order now." Amazon US uses the same "This item will be released on" wording:

    If you watch the "kitguru" first look, the guy from ASUS says that the M.2 via CPU is "a lot faster" than via PCH.

    All the R6E stars do seem to be aligning for a release date between the end of this week and the end of next week.

    Modder Peter Brands' R6E build was shipped to Berlin for use at the Asus booth at the Berlin IFA consumer electronics trade show that runs from Sep 1 to Sep 6.

    Asus will be displaying their gaming gear at the PAX West trade show in Seattle, which runs from Sep 1 to Sep 4.

    And two weeks ago, Asus Middle East also leaked out that: "The ROG Rampage VI Extreme and ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboards are available on First Week of September".

    Yeah. Overall, there was nothing new revealed in that video. Out of curiosity, I looked up that Asus guy's LinkedIn profile and see that he has a Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering from National Taiwan University. So I wonder if the DIMM.2 riser card and indium-coated armor plating were his ideas. National Taiwan University is the most prestigious university in Taiwan - very difficult to get admission, and very difficult to stay in. The college ranks between #40 and #80 across all engineering programs compared to all other universities in the world, and their computer science program ranks in the top 25 or 30 out of all the world's colleges. So even though his descriptions were a bit superficial, he is not just a marketing guy.
