evga4Eva99Aww man! I got a notification from newegg that the Gskill z5 ddr 5600s were back in stock but i was 4 hours too late! Grrrrr. But what's weird is on the gskill website they've already listed the 6000s but newegg doesnt even have those!!
murlo26I think newegg is moving ddr5 to the shuffle. Honestly, if you look at this video from derbauer you can see the next wave of ddr5 is going to be a LOT better. I was originally going to try to get the gskill 6000 myself but I might just get whatever I can and know that in 3-6 months there will be FAR better RAM out there. Most of the current ddr5 isn't even quite as good as the best ddr4 which is just how these things go when switching. In a year or two there should be some stellar ram though.
FlybyeI can’t stop wondering….since reports indicate DDR5 shortages may exist until mid 2022, what good would it do EVGA to release DDR5 only boards now? Or could they either have DDR5 info we don’t know about or will they make a DDR4 variant?

SunnyBeachI got lucky and (if you can say that) and got some G.Skill 5600 CL36 in a combo with an Aorus Master Z690. Not the best Motherboard or one I would choose, but it will have to do. Don't see an option to sell it for anywhere near retail. I also earlier got a combo with OLOy DDR5 4800 and an asus Prime Z690-A. That one is going back to newegg. I would love to get 32gb more g.skill 5600 but will be happy with what I have for now.
zippytekAny chance you still have the OLOy kit? I’m interested if you haven’t sent it back
SunnyBeachzippytekAny chance you still have the OLOy kit? I’m interested if you haven’t sent it backI have started the return process and have it packed to give to UPS in the morning. Its a combo that I have $600 in and the Asus Prime Z690-A. There is much better memory showing up in similar priced combo's at Newegg. I realize most don't have time to constantly check and respond to alerts from them fast enough. I just got lucky. Honestly I am still watching for a better combo as I am not that thrilled with the $500 Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Master. My processor just showed up today and the new Motherboard/Memory combo will be here Tuesday. I will just build it and be happy for now.
B0baganooshAs we're definitely coming up on release, I'm hoping EVGA gives a heads up this time before just surprise dropping the boards to the store. It has been met with angry responses every time they've done that with the recent motherboards.
SunnyBeachYesterday I tried to return the Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Master from my newegg combo order. No dice, I even ask customer support and was told I could only return the combo. Today I was lucky to grab a MSI Z690 Carbon and some G.Skill DDR5 6000 CL40. I will return my motherboard and DDR5 5600 CL36. I have the Carbon I bought from Amazon that I planned to use but will return it and just wait for this order to arrive.
SunnyBeachI was at my computer when the nowinstock web page notify started barking. I clicked my saved search in newegg. I had seen what they put up before they can be ordered and knew which I was after. From the time of the first alert, there were combos up for 15m or so. This is the third time I have ordered a combo and all three times it was from the alert sounded from the nowinstock webpage you enable at the top of the list.
deunan48Jacob said December for z690 boards im wondering when? and a ram list would be nice so i can start shopping for ram at least

fragility_V1Thanks to all for the Nowinstock tips. I was able to grab a DDR5 combo with the G.Skill 6000 C36 kit. Unfortunately, it was with a Z690 Strix, which I have no intention of keeping, so will just sell it at a losss. But I have my RAM. Now just need the Dark and can begin the teardown and rebuild.
