    https://www.techpowerup.com/259650/asus-rolls-out-rog-crosshair-viii-impact-not-strictly-mini-itx I think $450 is high even for an Impact board. I would have thought $100 - $150 less would be more reasonable.

    You shouldn't have any problem. The first YouTube video you posted of the Asian Impact build showed the guy testing a cpu waterblock with the m2 riser. His cooler looked bigger than Corsair's.

    I didn't ask. You can call the contact number from the site. I live in Vegas so it was a local call for me. If you're international, I can call and ask for you tomorrow.

    Outlet PC here in Vegas said they won't have their shipment in for a couple of weeks. They said the bigger retailers, like Amazon, Newegg, and Micro Center get theirs first. Newegg and Amazon should have stock by Monday.

    Strix One down, one to go. 😃 Glad the MSRP is much lower than anticipated. Glad I waited too. Will be replacing my last ASUS ITX board with another one.

    Outlet PC has the Strix listed @ $300 though the picture is wrong. Game PC has it listed for $300 as well. Both locations are out of stock at the moment. Based on those figures, it looks like the Crosshair Impact will be about $350 +. 🤔 Gigabyte for $220 or Strix for $300?

    If the Strix is around $250 the Impact will be closer to $300, which is probably why the released reports of this record breaking memory over-clock so close to launch.

    Question: I have an old Athlon II CPU. Can I use it to update the bios of an AM4 motherboard or is it way too old?

    The Intel mounting looks more like a problem than a solution. Instead of using a supplied cooler, I now have to buy one to use this board. Not cool. 😕 Gigabyte was able to get AMD cooling + TWO m.2 mounts. Still leaning toward GB. Appears MSI and Biostar are only going to release B550 boards (no...

    Not sure if this has been posted. The ASUS Strix X570-I https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-Strix-X570-I-Gaming/ Still waiting for release date and price other than Outlet PC's $300 prediction. Also waiting for official MSI and Biostar offerings. Currently Gigabyte gets my vote for best...

    In a word, "yes". But here is one place I got my info: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14161/the-amd-x570-motherboard-overview I saw another article that said Biostar was releasing an ITX board, but I can't find it at the moment. This article also has a chart listing the differences of the...

    MFRP is $400! They are just selling it for $300! Hopefully the Biostar offering is as good and cheaper than ASROCK, ASUS, and Gigabyte boards. Might force prices down a little. Otherwise there is always the EPYC Mini-ITX server option. At least then there is a legit reason for the price. Mal
