I went to the source, and chatted with NewEgg customer service:

I asked him to clarify the verbiage on the returns page, as it's a bit misleading.

When I got my 3080 it came with a RAM combo. Don't recall where I looked but it said you could return items from the combo and others have said they have. The main things is when you click on the refund button on the order, can you select items to return or not. I can.

I returned the PSU that came with my 3090. I just picked up a 3600x off newegg today. I'll be returning the ram that came with it.

For people with B&H orders that were placed very early when pre-order opened and that have not received any emails about delivery date...is your order showing back ordered or in Progress?
My order shows today Order Status: Order In Progress and I can swear that was not the status before but maybe is just my imagination :D

PS Maybe there is hope! I chatted with B&H and was told this "We have received your order in our system and everything looks great on our end. Your order is currently set to ship on Friday 12/04/20."
When did you pre-order yours? I ordered mine on 11-5-2020 and still showing backorder (I didn't get any email).

I think most folks did ordered that day. If you ordered in the first few minutes or so I thought you did not get an email and would get one in the first few weeks. I was 40 minutes on or so and got the by Dec 21st email.

I ordered 10 minutes after the preorder opened (Nov 4th 10:10PM MST) so decently fast but could have done better lol

Pleasently surpised my 5900x showed up today from amazon. Was sent email it was supposed to be delivered Dec. 1st then I get another email telling me it was delivered today with a picture of the package on my porch. They could have boxed it up in a brown box with packing peanuts, instead it was in one of those white padded envelopes. Luckily none of the pins were damaged, it all looks perfect. Now I just need my preorder of the asus dark hero to ship and my system will be complete.
Congrats on the 5900x.
How did you do a preorder for the dark hero? I keep looking around and can't even find it on amazon. NE I have notify set but nothing has arrived there from what I have seen.

Thanks for the input on motherboard guys. I decided to return the Gigabyte Aorus Elite and go for my original plan of the MSI Meg Unify for a number of reasons. Unfortunately the MSI won't be in stock until next week at Amazon (and I'm not paying extra from a third party on NewEgg -- aside from price hike, I've had a bad experience with a third party on NewEgg). Here's hoping it gets in stock earlier!

Thanks, I ordered it from shopblt last Friday when they first put up their page https://www.shopblt.com/item/asus-r...ro-amd-am4/asus_rogcrosshairviiidarkhero.html Right now I think they have about 420 pre orders with customers and currently they have 370 units incoming from Asus so you should put an order in if you want one when they get a second batch of orders in.

Was lucky enough to snag a 5900x through best buy. Only option was store pickup, so I'll be running down to grab it on Tuesday. Next up, trying to lock in a 3080 haha.

Nice! I've been hunting for a 5950x since release day... Hoping to secure one before March hopefully... :(
I got lucky i got the B&h notification the day before so was able to place the preorder fast but I really was losing faith in getting it any time soon based on the last time I pre-orderes a 9900k from them

This sucks :cry:

I saw that WTB threads for the 3000 series video cards are not allowed. Is that the same for a 5950x? Totally willing to pay someone a finders fee + shipping on one of those guys.

I kind of regret not picking up that 5800x when that's all they had in Microcenter. Should have sold it to someone on [H] for a modest fee & shipping.

I guess I should of kept my B&H pre-order.
Come on B&H, I only have 2 days left to add a protection plan.

SquareTrade Protection Plan
You still have 2 days to add a protection plan to your order.

_____________________________________

I went ahead and sent them an email just seeing if they could give any kind of update and they just gave me the same hopefully by December 21st info.


Thank you for contacting the Customer Service Department at B&H Photo Video and Pro Audio.

We understand you're excited about this new item and we're as enthusiastic to get it to you as you are to receive it. We received an unprecedented number of customer pre-orders this type of equipment, far exceeding the inventory the manufacturer had initially allocated for us. As a result, we are unable to ship your order as quickly as B&H typically deliver customer orders. .As the situation evolves, we will update you with whatever information we're able to share. As soon as we receive ample stock to reach your place on the waiting list, we will promptly ship and email your tracking information.

We expect to be able to ship your order on or about December 21st. This estimated delivery date is subject to AMD’s current delivery schedule and is subject to change. We are working closely with AMD trying to secure additional product to hopefully accelerate the schedule.

My 5900X shipped yesterday and should arrive tomorrow.
UPS finally picked up my 5950X today. I think a backlog on the UPS side delayed it by a day. My new MB and paste should arrive around the same time. Exciting!! :)

No you didn't miss it. I've caught several opportunities today when it claimed to have some, even using a distill script to auto open the pages. You could click buy now or add to cart, but either way it never actually was purchasable by anyone but bots. I think the popup for the warranty is what's screwing anyone that's not running one of the auto buy bots, by the time you click no, they're all gone.

This is the reason why I decided to use a bot.. use nvidia-bot for amazon, its free and works great.

nvidia-bot is the reason I got my 3080 FE from nvidia back in September. It automatically added it to the cart and took me to the checkout page.
