    It looks pretty cool but it’s obviously quite specialised in terms of its functionality. I would prefer the new Crosshair VIII Extreme.

    That's quite a gorgeous board. However, the tellytubby sound ports on the back REALLY ruin it. They should be gold.

    May eventually, you can get the Z490 FTW from one retailer. But Dark is literally saved for NA, you cannot buy it, you cannot even buy Kingpin/hydro copper stuff.

    I've gone Gigabyte for most of my builds, but having watched the reviews on these new boards whether I go Intel or amd next year evga will likely be my new go to for motherboards and gpu's

    Not available in the UK so EVGA loose out on a sale.

    The The ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme X570S is a better board anyway.

    Can't you order the X570 Dark direct from EVGA?

    Apparently EVGA are working on another AMD board.

    Demand for this board seems mental.

    An EVGA WRX80 board with overclocking options would be a STMM situation.

    EVGA 3600mhz ECC RAM with a DOCP switch.
