Newegg listing November 2nd and 3rd:

96062

Newegg listing November 4th, today:

96063

Did Newegg sell out their known incoming quantity of boards as Pre-Orders in 48hours? OR did they simply change the purchasing status?

Who knows right?

Did anyone grab a pre-order?

I'd like the LR80R at 18,000 lumens. Little bit pricey lol, but I guess it would illuminate the moon 🙂

And 18,000lumens might hurt your poor doggos. lol

USB-C charge to torch vs battery is about $20 to $30 more, so my last two have been charge to battery, a little less expensive.

But if you want an outdoor long-throw torch with 5pwr settings plus strobe 3000lumens then the TK20R V2.0 Rechargeable TAC is the way to go.

Currently sold out though. 😞

They make too many torches. Not an easy choice at all, but just looking at the TK20R now. Not cheap, 140GBP on the UK site, but I think you're right, that would be a fantastic dog walking torch. Thank you. I might be able to find it cheaper, so definitely going on the shortlist...

Looks great. An open bench is the best way to use that board I think - super easy to play with all of those tempting button and switches. I read that it even has a switch to pause everything, so I guess you can freeze the OS and any running programs, think about how cool that is and then let it continue. Think it's some sort of debugging feature, but I just think it will be fun to play with it 🙂

I’m getting nervous John, others are receiving their Apex boards tomorrow and mine hasn’t even moved yet. It’s just sitting in CA with a label created. Newegg charged the account $748USD yet UPS is saying delivery date will be November 28th, a week from today, why is it taking 10days to ship the Z790 Apex? *

Very worried :(*

Just Pulled the trigger on this Motherboard at Newegg today! Will be a while before I can complete build. Said it will ship right away eta Nov. 25 . Now if I could just get Rog Strix RTX 4090 OC. Will wait for now and hope to buy I 9 13900 KS when they come out since I can't get GPU.

Brucey - that does seem strange but I'm sure it will be fine. At the end of the day you've paid for it, so you'll get it. You will probably find that it moves all of a sudden and arrives a bit sooner. Hope so. Have you called them to chase it for you?

no, he paid just the peasant class shipping, his hands were shivering when he (re)ordered it he completely forgot to change the delivery through faster horses, so mules will have to do too :))

I messed up big time. 😞

Tried to update shipping and no chance, already packaged and labeled by UPS. Ok, still no real issue.

But why is it taking 10days Nov 18 to Nov 28 for delivery? Newegg free shipping has NEVER taken longer than 4days, so I just don't get it. 😞

Is Newegg holding all the pre-order boards to ship out tonight along with the standard orders placed today? 😞
