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?

Testing white sticks @ 8600 xmp air, 1.37 vdd/dq all other settings on auto bios 0010

Hello Centvalny OCN,.. I didn't know you were "dumo" on ROG forums, my bad. 

Thanks for clearing that up.  😁

I'm still testing the white sticks also, your 8600 1.37 vdd/dq is sweet. 

My system was unstable on bios 0010 during testing, I switched back to bios 1203, and everything changed like flipping a switch,.. much better with the 2x24GB bars on 1203 for my system. 

Intel 14900KF ~ Asus MZ790A ~ 48GB DDR5 ~ RTX 3090 FE ~ Crucial T700 SSD ~ SeaSonic TX-1600 ~ Praxis WetBench ~ Full Custom Water.

Awesome for air testing, nice work. Looks like GSKILL hand binning is paying off.

I started testing a set of the white 8200 sticks.  So far I have been using AIDA and TM5 to test it.  AIDA works fine with some manual voltages (XMP I defaults caused crashes) but setting the voltages manually has it working in AIDA and games just fine, but I get error after 2 mins in TM5.  I bumped all the memory related voltages up a notch and lowered SA (crashed at 1.35 but works fine at 1.25).  I am only trying to get the XMP timings stable for the moment.

I see pretty great results from others with high frequency and tight timings, even on air.  Is there something I am missing?

Hello Armoury Crate 🤗

My 13900KS broke the tachometer. 😀
