Dark Hero sounds too good!Dark Hero with the all core overclock AND single core boost, which the standard Hero and the Strix E does not have. If you're paying $300 for a board, what's another $100... especially when you're going to run a 5900X, which will benefit from the all core OC and the high single core boost.
MSRP is $399, already announced by Asus.https://rog.asus.com/us/motherboards/rog-crosshair/rog-crosshair-viii-dark-hero-model/wtb/
I read somewhere that it will be $400 MSRP.
I'm conflicted about it as well. If the Egg manages to sell it at MSRP then I will get it, $100 more than $300 isn't much of a stretchThe longer I wait, the less I want this board...I think with the effort it took to spend money on the 5000 series CPU, the 3000 series GPU, I'm about spent, ha.
What are your choices if I may ask? I got the X570 Aorus Master after not being able to wait for this Dark Hero any longer. This was of course BEFORE I found the thread here about folks exhibiting issues with the X570 Master, lol. I'm still within the return period but will need to reinstall everything, buy a different board, rebuild, etc.I'm conflicted about it as well. If the Egg manages to sell it at MSRP then I will get it, $100 more than $300 isn't much of a stretch
