Here are some pictures I took with my smartphone.

First impressions: She feels solid, the heatsinks combo weighs a ton, can't wait to fire her up! Where's mee seepeeuuuu?

I prefer the XI Apex's clean cut look over this, but this board still looks awesome! Very nice pictures too Alby, thanks!

Just beatiful!

Practical question: holes near the socket, are they identical in size to those in Apex XI? I mean, from Apex XI, I still have the 9th Gen Direct to Die frame from rockitcool. Do I need to buy a separate frame for comets? I already have two in the collection, from Kaby and CFL-R.

Does anyone know when this board will be for sale? I heard it will be launched later and it isn't listed in any german shop as all other boards.

What's your opinion about the changes to the 12 Apex vs the 11 Apex visually or build quality?  Are the VRM phases the same, besides increase in power stages to 70A?

That's not a bad plan, especially considering those may be coming before next year right?

Hi,

Probably should of waited until early July for the Apex but copped out for the formula in 5 days instead

I don't buy boards from newegg only amazon or locally better customer support.

I think, paper launch this year is very possible 😉 Also I heard rumors about frequency :)...
