The retail version of MSI MEG Z690 GODLIKE, the company's flagship Socket LGA1700 motherboard, will include an all-in-one liquid CPU cooler, and DDR5 memory sticks. Snapped at a PC retailer, the front-face of the retail box of the motherboard reads that the contents include an MSI MEG CoreLiquid S360 cooler, and Kingston FURY Beast DDR5 memory. The size and speed of the memory is not mentioned. What's also unknown at this point, is whether the board comes in retail packages that don't bundle the cooler or memory. Assuming the bundled memory is a 32 GB (2x 16 GB) kit of decent specs, such as DDR5-6000, this motherboard could easily command a four-figure price, with speculative prices averaging $1,500.
 
I believe many people will fork out the 1500 dollars for this bundle.

    As far as the possible memory, the Kingston FURY Beast DDR5 comes in 4800 MHz or 5200 MHz.  The guesstimate of $1,500 probably won't hold once it is for sale.  Initially retailers are probably going to ask for more than that.

    With DDR5 ram still hovering around $1000+ on scalpBay, how long before people just start parting these out?

    Great, MSI is taking after Newegg’s shuffle with bundling crap. This would be cool if there weren’t a DDR5 shortage.

    TechPowerUp - "Update Jan 17th: MSI has informed us, that the price for this bundle, consisting of the motherboard, 360 mm AIO, and 32 GB of DDR5 memory, will be around $2,099 in retail."
     
    Everyone's estimates were off and I assume the $2,099 is MSRP.

    The price of DDR5 memory probably caused the overall price to go up.
