Okay, Newegg sent me the wrong board at the beginning of the month.

Had ordered the Taichi Razer Edition.
They sent me a ROG Crosshair VIII Formula.
A nice board.
An EXPENSIVE board.
But it didn't have what I wanted on it.
Basically my choice was between three ASRock boards. Two of which would have needed a BIOS update to run my 5950X.

So I sent the thing back and asked for what I ordered.
Then fought with them for 2+ weeks. THEY screw up and *I* have to wait on the part I paid them for.



Anyhow, the motherboard arrived this afternoon.
I've begun populating.




Liked my Thermaltake Core X9 so much (ROOOOOOOOOOOMY!) that I picked up another one.
Also because I need my current rig to keep working until the new box is fully built.

Going with 3 SSDs and 4 hard drives (RAID-10)



Due to the realities of the market right now, was unable to obtain a new graphics card.
So when I am ready, I'll be moving my current 2060 over. As I'm not spending $2K on a new graphics card because it's been scalped.

Case stripped.
Feet subbed for casters.
3x 140mm Noctua Redux fans padded and screwed to radiator bracket in pull config.
Last minute change of mind and decided to just go push-pull from the start.
Unfortunately the screws included in the Eisbaer set are for EITHER a push OR a pull situation. So it's gonna be a couple days until another set of Mx30 screws arrive.
