They've been in and out of stock, dunno why. I got my asrock board finally, had to wait a few weeks for it to come in stock. Well, could've got it sooner, but I was waiting for a better deal.

I think there may be fewer being made in anticipation of b550, and also lots of hobbiests due to quarantines.

Tell me about it. I saw the dwindling supply at the retailers and just decided to scrap plans for my new system. I do have the case and PSU but will just wait for the next gen intel/amd chips.

Yeah, it;'s not just ITX boards - everything is picked-over.

Which is why it;s amaing me that Intel has the audacity rt to release a new socket in these troubling times - Once intial stock is sold, you're not going to find an LGA1200 in stock before September.
