Thanks very much OP. I see it is now "Temporarily not available". I chose slow $12 shipping because I tried to buy ASAP before it ran out.
 
About warranty, you can also use a credit card with 2 year extended warranty to get 5 years total. Most Citi cards offer that. And most Visa cards offer 1 year extended warranty. I used my Costco Citi card.

As much as I am happy about securing any sort of EVGA card, I wish the card I backordered was an XC3 model due to shorter length. I want the Meshify C case, but trying to figure out how to fit an RTX 3080 with my Kraken Z73 360mm AIO. XC3 is 285mm like the Nvidia FE. I believe the FTW3 is 300mm.

Why isn't Evga doing this on their webstore? I would rather just pre-order directly from Evga. Come on Evga, that way your website doesn't crash when stock comes in due to the mad rush.
I almost had one checked out yesterday @ 6am PST, even went through the Paypal page and it failed on redirect. What a collosal waste of time with nothing to show. 




Adorama is a NYC camera store, just like B&H but a bit smaller, but they do a good amount of general consumer electronic.  Lots of pro and semi-pro customers.  As a retailer, I think they just have a different mentality than the EVGA store vs. Amazon vs. Newegg, etc.  They've been doing backorders and special orders for DECADES.

The fact that they took a specific number of back orders makes me think/hop they only took cards for what they know is coming. Hope so. I can already imagine me holding that glorious FTW3. Lmao

I’ve got my black sharpie ready 😂. Anyone with a Meshify C case? Should I just give up aesthetics and get the Meshify S2?

The competency of B&H or Adorama is excellent in general.  They are both very savvy retailers that have succeeded in two extremely competitive markets, NYC and online.  But who knows, maybe they had an error.

My disappointment in missing this is immeasurable. I wish EVGA just did this themselves.

I'm so pissed I missed this. It's never been harder for me to give someone my $800 in my life. WHAT THE ****.

In the dark, I can feel You in my sleep.. In Your arms I feel You breathe in to me. Forever hold this heart that I will give to You, Forever I will live for You!

Getting the game is the least of my concerns. I'm happy enough to have been able to order a card. Lol

Yeah it's certainly a start.  Keep your fingers crossed.  Like I said earlier,  Adorama is legit, they are not going to be chuffed by a backlog of a few dozen legitimate orders.

I mean they are giving free accent replacements TBD to any verified purchase. Also, the Meshify S2 is better IMO. I was 50/50 on the Meshify or the H710i and only went with the 710i because it had a fan controller included. However, now there is the Fractal Define 7 which is basically the S2 but better. GN did a good video about it.

Well the card didn't ship but I did get a decent price on a EVGA G5 1000w psu which I kinda needed regardless of the card, and that shipped.  Looks like the FTW3 will fit in my case.  I AM READY.  lol

Do you think they only sold as many as they were getting?  I got an order in, just curious if they over sold

If it is a pre-order list maybe. If it is a backorder list, I can almost 100% guarantee you they oversold and will result in "waves" of shipments as they receive stock.

Pretty sure they definitely only allowed orders for a shipment(s) they know is coming. I added every single card to cart, and put qty 100. It then auto adjusted to the actual quantities they had on hand. I refreshed my cart every 30 seconds or so and watched them all slowly go to not available 1 by 1.
Every single card had a LIVE inventory qty assigned to it. It doesn't seem like some random back order that will just be filled whenever, but I could be wrong.
