    Was thinking of grabbing one off amazon USA, it’s around $680 which isn’t too bad and cheaper than ocuk, have to wait till August 8th for stock though

    UK OC no warranty ?
    The post is quicker for me from there than it is from over east.
    No worries, sure someone else would like a cheap, brand new apex, with warranty BTW .

    That is not the easiest board to oc.
    Bullants seems happy with his new purchase, that's good enough for me (Apex XII).
    Its hard to get these , how hard do you think think it would be to get a dark ?

    ah nice will take a look. No hurry for me though downside of Amazon eta end of Aug but is ok still happy with my Apex Xi till it arrives.

    Man that Dark does sound good too though looking at the specs. Wonder how long before release just signed up to the email alert too.

    If it magically released before Amazon gets stock and ships my order might consider it if not like insane price but I dont have high hope's lol

    Let me know if you decide to sell your second worse chip :)

    my second chip;), it needs slightly more voltage than my other 10900k to achieve the same clock (or at least, that's what windows10 reports), but it runs way cooler.
    it can do easy 5.4ghz stable on 280mm aio and also imc seem stronger too. when I drop it in my apex will find out if is high SP, it looks like so.

    z490 aorus elite AC in bios is set 1.37v fixed vcore

    nice:) so far in your experience have you found higher sp number = better? Seen some mixed comments online some ppl getting low sp number but better than their other higher sp chips.

    Also on the Apex do you just run the newest bios version? Heard sp number can change depending on version? My credit card got charged today from Amazon so hope my board is on the way shortly.
