Apollo1321Optimus has become a joke, becoming just as bad as Eve monitors. Maybe have a block for 6months before 40 series launches.Been trying to cancel my order but can't get a response.
Apollo1321Yea I wrote on their Twitter that if some time went by without shipping I wanted a refund with interest. But I removed it because some people on there are defending Optimus and saying other stupid things. I just can't bother with those types.
ShawnB420Blocks are now shipping!!!https://twitter.com/optim...66839160430284803?s=21
ShawnB420Now to see if the active backplate will even fit on my Z690 Extreme
Gotspeed_2000Mech9t5,I also got a similar response via email about shipping out this week but didn't want to get to much hope into it, but even with my early order I still have not had a status change yet to my order status in their website. I have a feeling they will be packing up the boxes and getting them ready to ship this weekend rather than sending them out today. This is still good news as this release has been delayed enough. I had another order that I did last week for the conversion of my AMD block to Intel and enough orings for all my blocks, additional replacement thermal pads, and mounting kit that had a status change already which was still showing "unfulfilled" as of last night to "fulfiled" this morning. Thanks guys for sharing the tweet. I looked at their twitter earlier today but this came out after I looked. If anyone gets a shipping update can you please share. I'll do the same. Thank you.
Gotspeed_2000ShawnB420Now to see if the active backplate will even fit on my Z690 ExtremeA vertical mount might be an option if it doesn't fit. Lian Li makes one for the O11 XL that has multiple mounting points that allows you to move the gpu either closer or further from the mobo when used. You just need to make sure you have a long enough PCI-E riser cable to accommodate the movement necessary. You should be able to use their mount in any pc case as long as it has a similar amount of slots available to fit the mount.
Gotspeed_2000Shawn,I'm right behind you at 5211 so I'll be posting here if my status changes. You might get lucky as they could be using your GPU to ensure the process is what they expected when installing the block onto the gpu. Crossing my fingers for you bro as we all have been waiting long enough.
Gotspeed_2000Shawn,I don't want to even imagine how much you spent on fans. Must be kinda funny if the question is ever brought up though. All my pc stuff is packed away due to home renovations so I wont be able to do my install right away either. Just glad we are closer to getting the blocks though so that when I do have the space and all my tools and stuff I can do it when I need to. I might have to pull some stuff out though as one of the Kingpins I have belongs to someone else so they might want their done earlier.
alpharius194I would assume shawnb420 is first of the people we know about and will be the canary. I got my order in at 10am est and am #5275, hopefully it’s not all kingpins between my order and his 😅
MackWageI'm 5336 and haven't received a notice yet .. but here's to hoping!
ShawnB420#5209 just got a label created notice
