This board is consider excellent especially for the price... and it came with Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite. Is that a decent MB for a 5950x? I was planning on the much more expensive MSI MEG X570 Unify. I grabbed the first combo on the list and clicked as fast as I could!!
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.
When did you pre-order yours? I ordered mine on 11-5-2020 and still showing backorder (I didn't get any email).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
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."
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.When did you pre-order yours? I ordered mine on 11-5-2020 and still showing backorder (I didn't get any email).
Congrats on the 5900x.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.
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.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.
very happy for you !!! I hope to get similar email for my 5900x in 2020
Sweet! Keep us posted on how it goes, re the link above about potential BIOS issues. I'm using 'plain ol' 3200 ram, so I'm hoping I'm not affected...
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 themNice! I've been hunting for a 5950x since release day... Hoping to secure one before March hopefully...

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.
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.Arrrgghhh.... Amazon had the 5900x up for purchase with an early Feb delivery date. I was running errands and missed it. :-(
This is the reason why I decided to use a bot.. use nvidia-bot for amazon, its free and works great.No you didn't miss it.
