Newegg listing November 4th, today:

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?

These 8400 timings are benched, stress tested,.. your going to need adjust your voltages for your IMC.

Sorry for the image quality they are old screenshot images.

Good luck bro!

Brosephio, my MCv it 1.385v and SAV 1.313v.

Just wanted to share a few pics of my system and get you guys thoughts and comments.

So I have only updated to the latest drivers across the system. I haven't OC anything yet. I wanted to place an in line filter but couldn't get it to look right with bulky QDC. I managed 3x 360 Rads and 1 140 Rad. Temps under heavy gaming 4K Ultra settings are usually CPU 70C and GPU 65C while playing BF2042 or COD games.

Ok any suggestions to OC my 13900KS & G.SKill DDR5 8000? I would love to help out you guys and see what my Rig can do. Thanks

That's a lot of rads ROG brother. For comparison - as a baseline or whatever I'm only using one 60mm x 280mm rad and my 13900KS can achieve 6.2Ghz all 8Pcores TVB boost. I can help you with the Thermal Velocity Boost overclock, yet I'm not (nor plan on) running an all-core or a per-core with the 13900KS, mine is only an office pc, and the TVB boost is ideal for extreme responsiveness, while maintaining virtually stock thermals - so KUDOS to highly-binned processors. 😃

Thanks Bud, yeah what's a good start doing Thermal Velocity Boost overclock? I'll look into that too. I would really like to to use my two P cores that boost up to 6.2 GHz.

Bruce will tell you - he told me to try it and it worked perfectly - I have to get to bed now...
