Still no reviews for this board? 
Please guys post some pictures :D
 
Can someone tell me what's happening to the EVGA EU Store? The only X299 motherboard listed is the Micro and there isn't either a shop section for Z370...

I see now what badboy64 is doing on this MSI MB
Remapping to and taking away from the PCIe Lanes and reducing the overall performance of the motherboard.
"Pcie Storage Remapping" is why the MSI can do what you are saying, overall you are really reducing Performance.
Maybe running with only One Graphics Card but not with Two or more Graphics Cards.
 
M.2 PCIe SSD RAID
You can create a M.2 PCIe SSD RAID volume with M.2/Optane Genie or UEFI BIOS.
Important
y Please note that you must install M.2 SSDs of the same model and type in the M.2
slots to create the RAID 0 volume.
y During windows setup, the RAID driver may be required and you can find the RAID
driver in MSI Driver Disc.
y You can use MSI SMART TOOL to build the Windows® 7/ 8.1/ 10 installation drive that
includes RAID driver.
y If your system currently boots to M.2 PCIe SSD RAID and you delete the RAID volume,
your system will become unbootable.
y When you delete the M.2 PCIe SSD RAID volume, please be noted that all data on M.2
PCIe SSDs will be lost.
Creating a M.2 PCIe SSD RAID with M.2/Optane Genie
1. Access the BIOS setup.
2. Enable M.2/Optane Genie by clicking the M.2/Optane Genie item.
3. Click Ok in the dialog.
4. Press F10 to save configuration and exit.
Creating a M.2 PCIe SSD RAID with UEFI BIOS
1. Access the BIOS setup
2. Switch to Advanced Mode by pressing F7 key.
3. Go to Settings > Advanced > Windows OS Configuration.
4. Set Windows 10 WHQL Support to Enabled.
5. Go to Settings > Advanced > Integrated Peripherals.
Setting\Advanced\Integrated Peripherals
SATA Configuration
SATA Mode [RAID Mode]
M2_1 Pcie Storage Remapping [Enabled]
M2_2 Pcie Storage Remapping [Enabled]
6. Set SATA Mode to RAID Mode.
7. Set both M2_1 Pcie Storage Remapping and M2_2 Pcie Storage Remapping to
Enabled.
8. Press F10 to save and exit and then press the Enter key to select Yes.
9. Reboot the system and access the BIOS setup again.
10. Switch to Advanced Mode by pressing F7 key.
11. Go to Settings > Advanced > Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology.
128 RAID Configuration
12. Select Create RAID Volume and press Enter key.
...\Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology
 
Select Create RAID Volume and press Enter key.
 
13. Enter in a volume name.
14. Select the RAID level.
15. Use Space key to select the both PCIe SSDs.
16. If creating RAID 0, select the Strip Size; it is recommended that it be left at the
default value.
17. Go to the Create Volume field and press Enter.
 


I was running 2 1080ti's but I never used any of the MSI garbage that came on the disc. I didn't see loss of performance in games. Which I play alot. The performance for the 2x960 M.2 Raid-0 wasn't affected at all.

Not sure a mention is needed but if you guys were on the notify list then you may need to resub it - I am guessing once the notifications go it it flushes the list?

This is correct; once the notification is sent out you will need to enter your information again to allow us to send the next notification e-mail.

Ugh, same thing. Notification sent to my email and sold out fast. Hope they produce more than 10 before they notify everyone. Should be a reserve for those on the list.

I think we only had a few boards available, which we were keeping in reserve in case replacements were needed or other reasons.  Don't worry, we're still waiting for our next shipment of Dark boards, so you haven't missed those.  I'm afraid I don't have the date for you guys, but won't be that much longer.

No, it is the sponsored adds in Gamers Nexus and the X299 Dark T-shirts that Jacob had tweeted about that are making it hard for someone who's job doesn't have them parked in front of a computer all day - I say this all in fun

Again, we only put around 3 boards up for sale the other day.  Our next shipment of boards has not arrived yet.  You'll have a much better chance the next time we put some up for sale.

I won't be able to answer that until we're ready to put more back into stock.

Are you satisfied with X299 Dark?
No some problems, little bugs, did you resolved some problems, or similar things.
 
Best moment is when new motherboard arrive in house and you open CPU, new memory kit and install easy first CPU, than memory. Than put motherboard in case, than thermal paste, than Cooler or block. After that GPU, Sound Card, fix cables, connect them, check is it everything connected.
Than press power button on PSU and LED on motherboard turn On. Good sign, than you press button and she start to change Q Codes...
you wait, wait and prey god that everything is fine and than boom Windows Logo. It's alive. It's Alive.
Than you install softwares and check sensors, readings in Windows, run few tests, pay attention on clocks, run Memory Tests over night, 2-3h stability on default clock is best to use Prime95 because it;s not overlocked and than restart enter in BIOS and change settings as you want. And new platform work.
It's bad because I could enjoy in these things ever 3-5 years. 
 
When I wait to upgrade on X99 i7-5820K I thought only... God please, 4.0GHz on Default voltage, please I don't ask nothing else.
And everything was fine. Later I say please only 4.2GHz on max 1200V. And I keep him and today. But when I install Monoblock for few days I will go on up to 1300V max clock.
i9-7900X would keep on 4.5GHz because that's not small clock for 10 cores.
