Have to agree with him...the big yellow caps ...why?!
Overall I like the looks of it...still unsure why dual QCode's...perhaps in BIOS one of em can be set up to indicate CPU or Chipset temp, while the other is post code.


Eh wouldn’t matter to me. I’m going to have a closed case anyways.

I do find the choice of bright yellow for the caps just a bit off.  Would be nicer if they chose a more muted color.  I really would just like a little more of an estimate of when they'll be ready since a mobo is the last piece I need to get my new build started.  They've been saying "soon" for over a month now and it's been a couple weeks since the "very soon" comments around Christmas.  Just getting antsy hoping I don't miss this drop while I'm on travel for the next undetermined amount of time...

Perhaps the color choice was due to an engineering constraint with supply? If so, I wonder why they didn't add a tidbit to cover it up some unless of course it would have contacted a card or something otherwise in that spot. I'd much rather have a good board with a strange color cap than a bad board that needs to be re-capped. Time will tell I guess.

They've been using yellow caps on the Dark boards in that location since at least Z390.  It's likely a choice.

Just came back to say that they do match the KP board design quite well. Just not sure why they left it exposed on the Classified model though I guess. Looks like they are partially covered up to begin with as you can see more of them from the top view on the KP model.

As far as I know there have only been a few samples sent out to reviewers. I'm not the definitive source of information on this however. I'd expect a much louder announcement via the usual channels (twitter etc) when a public release is made.

Do we know when an equivalent will be available for the AM4? I hope we will still see innovation ahead of the next gen Zen (which we will not be able to buy for at least a year thanks to the shortage).
 
How do people feel this compares to the ASUS Dark Hero?

Wish they gave something. I am getting closer to the X570 Dark and grabbing a 5800X3D and skipping a gen. Would prefer a classified though.

I wish just gave us a general idea of when they were planning to launch the queue. Pretty frustrating how much time I've wasted stalking evga's social media accounts waiting for the queue to go live for this. just waiting till the afternoon to get in on the queue for a new product can result in an additional 3+ month wait.

Highly unlikely that ram is incompatible on just about all motherboards. QVL lists are not really necessary, I have never followed them.

the same rules for 30 series graphics cards don't apply to motherboards. I think it's first come first serve for motherboards. Although I could be wrong. Just sign up and see what happens

Looks like a preorder queue unless some actually got to order one. I would  like to get one but really don't need it. Darn the wants... Just wish I could order it bundled with a 3090.
