evga, I have relied upon the guides TiN had written over @ xdevs for many years. The uncorking guides and so on.
 
It's really disappointing to see this URL  that's silkscreened on the testbench PCB - doesn't link to the actual guide, and that one doesn't exist. 
 
10900k are more available now given zen3 is out, and i was really looking forward to pushing my 10900k to the limit. I even ordered EK's new Quantum TEC block to explore those limits. 
 
But I need TiN's help, and you(evga) want me to continue buying your $600 motherboards. I was also planning on getting the KINGPIN 3090 to replace my FE, but given there won't be a guide for that - I'm now questioning this. Furthermore, this non-existent guide dilutes the brand that is KINGPIN/DARK. EVGA has done alot of work in making KINGPIN a recognized well known brand synonymous with extreme overclocking within EVGA. You are only shooting yourself in the foot, by doing this. 
 
please help evga - I want to give you money, please make this easy for me.

    I don't know where he works now, but when I spoke to him last night - he said as a full-time EE working for EVGA, they still wouldn't send him anything

    When I was full time EE no need anything sent, it was available at lab. Some misunderstanding there is :) Obviously now there is no such luxury, that's all I was saying. I do like nice hardware and writing articles, but not enough to buy latest and greatest.

    If you have question, please post in public forum. I do not reply PMs, so all in community can benefit the answer.

    Sounds like a good opportunity for a GoFundMe :)

    What is the link that's on the PCB?
    I can't open the image for some reason.
