The price to performance of these is going to be amazing and the Aussie prices are reasonable too

It is. It was my second choice after the Crosshair. My favorite feautre of the board was the dual M.2. Awesome!
Only feature I wish the new boards had were dual LAN ports
But i am never going for Xfire. So honestly to me, B350 chipset will probably be it for me. I don't need an ATX board for one GPU. I'm waiting for more matx and itx boards before buying. If I buy..(i really want to but priorities and all)

I know, fell in love the moment I saw it, will look perfect in my build. I'll let you know what it's like, going to do a log for the build.

That's fair dude. I kinda backed myself up into a corner because I've been gunning for a day one build for so long I've already sold my old parts, so I can't wait terribly long. I may XFire in future depending on whether Polaris cards get a price cut if the Polaris refresh comes.

Same, glad they've dropped the dragon they used to put. I would also like to know when the ITX boards are coming alongside the R5 CPUs, that's all I need to finish my Mrs build

Ok, I chose my brace o' pistols and ordered the Ryzen 1800X and the Gigabyte Aurus Gaming K7 I don't normally pre order stuff but a couple of things 'allowed' me to do it.

My last rig was a 2600K on a Z77 MSI board. Around 5 years old and OC for most of it. Any new rig is going to upgrade every thing about it so always on a winner there. The main thing though is that last Friday said well the worn MSI Z77 board decided it had had enough and signalled the fact with a small puff of smoke and a burning smell.

Now with it being my birthday in April and old faithful passing, the stars just aligned you see.

My new rig so far

R1800X and Aurus K7, 32 GB of G-Skill Trdent Z 3200 and Corsair 500 Nvme SSD, I'm in for a treat I think. My 980Ti can carry me over a couple of months until the shots are fired with this years graphics cards and I can chop down my credit card bill .

The pricing is better than some of the websites that said earlier pricing like $200 cheaper than originally.

Unless they put the X300 chip in the mATX boards like they're doing for the ITX boards, I am also very disappointed with the lack of mATX form factors.

As for the pricing, I doubt I'll be buying from the UK. If OCUK charges £250 for the Crosshair, Mind Factory in Germany or any large German retailer will be charging €265-270, a significant reduction when currency exchange is processed. Buying from Germany is a lot cheaper than buying from the UK at the moment if Euro is your main currency, and it was a lot worse before the UK left the EU. Five to ten years ago, £250 would be €300. Then when the USD increased and the EURO dropped even further a few years ago, £250 shot up to €350 or more. Now since the UK left the EU it's back down to €300. That's great for me, but even with that it's still cheaper to buy from Germany and stay within the EU.

Right now it is all about high end. All 8 core, all more than £300 (not saying that's a bad thing but you are looking at a minimum £500 entry level). That's a lot of money.

So what do the board manus do? sell their most expensive boards first. That's just how it is going to go man. Yeah there are cheaper boards but the emphasis right now is on the dear stuff.

There are a couple of perfectly reasonable MATX boards out there. Gigabyte make a rather nice looking one with a heatsink on the VRM area so it's better than nothing.

Other stuff will follow later, but if you were waiting on ITX then you may have a long wait. I don't think you will see that until September when the APU comes out, and I have a feeling that the cheaper ITX boards will not overclock at all with a 7 series. Just like the Asrock X99 ITX board they will be severely limited on overclocking. Max I ever saw out of a 5820k was 4.2ghz on one of those boards but that was a golden chip that needed very low volts (and thus didn't overload the VRMs causing them to throttle).

Asus et al all know what they are doing and they know the market far better than we do. I've seen a couple of guys on each of the forums I frequent moaning about the lack of ITX boards but they are the minority.

For example some guy on OCUK this morning said "Sod it CBA waiting for the good MATX boards have ordered a Aorus and a new case".
