I ordered the IHS frame today just to be on the safe side 😛https://www.amazon.de/-/en/gp/product/B0B64Y5ZXL?ref=ppx_pt2_dt_b_prod_image
As noticed from 12th, if a new processor is mounted in the socket its IHS will curve anyways, so mounting the frame after won't make most of the times any difference
Apex Z790 will arrive in Germany this Friday but I'm kinda reluctant to order again an Asus product from abroad, due to their "local" warranty policy...
Even if the board is bought online
within the so-called Mickey Mouse EU territory when it comes to warranty Asus Germany cannot pick up the board from a different country and the local Asus cannot pick up the board because its S/N is assigned to another country. That's cute =))
If the Apex will be crap again, we'll make sure that lots won't buy this brand again...
6200 surprisingly working fine, 6400 no
go on a Hero, but it's a... Hero though, no high expectations here... sending regards to Asus :))https://youtu.be/Dd-2mvLFW50?t=4115
