bcavnaughI see now what badboy64 is doing on this MSI MBRemapping 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.

gobstoppableWhen will x299 dark board be available again? I got a auto email at 8:50pm est saying they were available, but they are still listed as auto notify. Did they sell out again in 45 minutes?
GGTV-JonI had gotten the email while I was still at work - looked at the page on my phone and it had a green add to cart - now nothing :(
GGTV-JonNot 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?
STR1D3R_2Thanks Bcav, your post will make it impossible to get one now, as everyone will want one!!JK of course
NvidiaFiendDamn why am I just seeing this now. Should've been on this one. Now I'm stuck waiting on notifications.
bcavnaughIs the X299 Dark no longer a ELITE Membership Requirement?
bcavnaughMore than worth it IMO.
