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
You are the MVP thx! Lol going to look that up now I'm happy to wait at that price and no aus warranty ^^
You have to use the USA site, cheapest postage is around $680, $705 ish for express
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 .
cool yeh hear overclockers uk fast shipping
Yes warranty but need to ship bk there I assume. I was referring to if I lived near Scorptec could be worth the extra as get Aus warranty.
Not if you could have it express when I get back next Thursday.
Its in an unopened box .
I give up , sell it to ballants for 600.
why you all want an Apex when soon this would be available :
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 ?
Looks good too bet pretty $$ on release. Ordered the Apex off Amazon as about $680ish delivered. Now searching for good price on a 10900k ^^
apex is great no doubt, z490 dark should be better
paid 849 for mine.
10900k, few days back purchased a second chip 899 from ijk.com.au
not sure if they have it in stock atm
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
sound like a plan
second chip still sealed, didn't have time to check it yet
10900k $902 free shipping
Played around with some daily/gaming settings today.
5.2 core 4.7 cache 1.285v LLC7 drooping to 1.26v under load
4666 17-17-17-36 2T 1.5vdimm / 1.3v IO 1.35v SA
Have tested stable with aida64 for 1 hour so far, load temps just holding under 80c with a single 240mm rad.
Apex showing 4 in stock now at Amazon so may get here faster. Looks like they upped price $18 since I bought it though. Posting in case anyone else wanted one.
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.
