    Do you really read the topic "The Z690 DARK K|NGP|N Queue Thread"??? No or. Because, when you did read then you found that over eBay sales EVGA worldwide now the z690 dark kingpin. 
    The shipping time from the USA to Germany is just 10 days for me. Extremely fast. That surprised me how fast it can send to EVGA.
    There is an already incl my sales over eBay. 

     
    I paid over Google Pay. It was working. My EVGA z690 dark kingpin is on the way to Germany and I become ups tracing the number where I already checked and it moves. 
     
    Really so many thanks to the EVGA Sales Team that giving us this way.

    hi thanks for the reply i did see it on ebay but i aint willing to pay the import charges for the motherboard it dont make sense i end up paying near enough a grand once import and shipping charges come in to play hence why i wanted to wait to see if it will be available on evga europe.

    I can destroy this hope for you from a direct source.
    The Z690 Dark Kingpin is produced by the EVGA Taiwain, but the can't sell and must send to usa. I talked about this with the EVGA Sales Team in Taiwain and Vince, that they send me to my home address in japan. That would be fast and cheap then. 
    You can just about buy the EVGA z490 dark in an online shop in Europe, but not the z590 dark. You'll probably have to wait years for that.You will find it earlier in the used market on HWBOT in the forum. I'm sure.
     
    So when really want then you should buy. I paid around 184$ shipping cost and tax.

    When you buy hardware from EVGA do you not have to pay the import charges? 
    I have no idea how it works for anywhere but canada but for us we have to pay small import fee but the duty, which is the same as the sales tax if you bought it here, is what kills you. There is no way to avoid paying those charges, no matter who it's ordered from, in canada.
     
    I currently have the ASUS Z490 Apex, same class board as the Z690 KP, I am mostly happy with it but I am NOT happy with ASUS. I have been a very faithful ASUS customer for 20+ years but they have given up on customer service. I guess their sales are so high they don't think they need to focus on customer service. 
    I would Love to try the EVGA Z690 KP but the price is the same as the ASUS Z690 Apex. However the price for the KP is in USD, so with minimum $50US shipping plus duty and converting to CDN I would pay $1300CDN for the EVGA Z690 KP. 
    The only sensible thing to do with that is pair it with a 12900KS so another $1200CDN, plus high end DDR5 another $800+CDN. I'd want to upgrade my PCIE 3.0 M.2 SSD RAID boot drives so another $800+CDN LOL. 
     
    I game at 4K and after checking 4K gaming benchmark comparisons of 10900K vs 12900K there is no reason for me to upgrade.
    If Intel releases a new HEDT platform in the next year or two I will definitely upgrade to that. I want more PCIE lanes and while Z690 does provide an increase in lanes it's not enough for me and none of the motherboards have enough slots for everything I want to do.

    i will be buying from eu.evga that way i will not be paying a import charge if im correct its been a while since i ordered from evga direct last time i got anything was the evga x79 dark all thanks to "Jacob" at evga who hooked me up. 

    and i want to get on the raptor lake i9 13900k that will be a big upgrade for me im mostly on warzone trying to get high fps and at the moment im bottlenecked im running a i7 3930k overclocked at 4.8 ghz stable with a gtx 1080ti and am capping in at around 70-90 fps at 1440p lets see what happens im going to try contacting evga in the uk and see if i can get anything through them otherwise the ebay route it will have to be.

    and with pci lanes maybe meteor lake might be a lot more lanes for what you do maybe ?? long wait for that

    Is meteor lake going to be the new HEDT? Darn I think that's going to be 2-3 years?
     
    Yeah hopefully they increase the lanes again for 13900K. 
    It's not like I want to run 4 x GPU's, to be honest I think there are enough for everything I want available on the current platform.
    It's that motherboard makers don't use all that's available and don't put enough slots on their boards. 
    I understand why, the majority of computers in the world don't have any expansion cards added to them and even most gamers 
    add one GPU and no other cards to their motherboards.

    if im honist im not too sure but from what im reading raptor lake will be a good improvement over alder lake in power and speed and meteor lake is meant to be pushing even further but i guess only time will tell and as regards to pcie lanes im guessing naturally they will follow suit now and start to add more lanes in every gen maybe ?

    Boxaaz11...big upgrade for me im mostly on warzone trying to get high fps and at the moment im bottlenecked
     



    curious why you'd want a board designed specifically for overclocking to play warzone tho? it's way overkill for this, and you've told us you aren't willing to pay shipping/import duties so why not buy a board you have access to at a price you'll be happier with. even locally you want to pay 900 for a motherboard to play warzone?
     
    not a judgment at all, just wondering why you landed on this board vs something less expensive that will be more than sufficient. tell us what you're looking for from a high end board and maybe we can help with a better suggestion

    i guess your right but im use to buying overkill parts for what i need lol i do overclock and nothing on the level of LN2. i do a lot more than warzone but mostly game but to be honest it could all be done on another board your totally right. the board i had before was a evga x79 dark motherboard i brought that in 2012 and its lasted me till today and i could maybe even keep this setup going for another maybe 3 years it still blasts out all the games i play. for warzone am just going lower res no 4k but trying to achieve high fps as i got a 360hz monitor. 
    but you have a fair point i dont need this motherboard but i just want it haha. i want to build one high end mad computer again then i can leave it for set amount of years without having to worry. 

    thanks for the help though appreciate it bro

    (EVGA EU) 
    regarding the whole thread 

    i spoke with EVGA Europe today over the fone and asked them about the board being available in the uk and across Europe what they told me was the following:

    (" the board is currently out in the us and we are speaking with evga and currently in process of trying to get the board in Europe for sales to all these country's but for now if you would like the board it is on the EVGA ebay shop but downside is having to pay the import charges.")

    this we already knew like Sporrdig mentioned earlier about the board being available on ebay. downside is paying them import charges which pushes the overall price a lot higher than what the board would be available for direct from here. 

    hope this helps anyone that is searching for the same thing

    oh yeah, same on most of this. i have been treating overkill as insufficient for a long time lol
     
    GL with getting one sans duties tho, i'm sure they will get there eventually

    If we buy from EVGA's eBay listing, do we get full warranty cover? Can the board be replaced by EU EVGA if there would be any problems or we again need to send it back to the US?

    Generally you do not get warranty from Ebay unless it is a seller such as Newegg and EVGA who post items for sale on ebay.

    Since that is the official EVGA eBay page, then I assume I do get the full warranty? Any info about replacement? Can EVGA EU take care of the possible replacement or I would have to send it back to the US and then take care of the import costs once again?

    i would be very surprised if you don't get the full warranty. that being said, i can't say you'll be able to get EU service support, and you very well might need to ship to the US for service. If that's a concern, I would reach out to Jacob or contact EVGA sales/support before buying to get confirmation

    I contacted EVGA's eBay page and this is the reply: "Yes, if warranty where needed you would ship to our closest warehouse (likely in Germany)." I'm ordering one right now! :)

    When you really want the Kingpin Motherboard from your heart, it then more matters the price. For me was really doesn't matter. I made currently over 1000$ for my order on eBay and is more me doesn't matter how much it has to do or pay for becoming the z690 dark kingpin. I have now my z690 dark kingpin by me at home. 
     
    And when you do not feel like this, then why you don't get or use the Asus z690 apex, what would be cheaper and "should" have the same performance by benchmark result.

    Paying taxes and import charges are normal. It depends on how bad you want the product.

    Yeah I know it's normal.. I'm just saying I won't be buying this board since it's not available on EU market, and importing it from US and paying VAT and stuff is something I won't do.

    Okey
    I also let shipped from USA EVGA eBay Order to Germany. It arrived and by unboxing it was looking like a new product. No, an issue. Of course, DHL wanted to have again the confirmation with the bill from me, but that's all.
    First UPS national transport and then DHL international.
