still waiting for stocks to hit sls...
Should be out for sale soon, I was told.
So I take it that they might include optional WiFi antennas for purchase?
Can also get from elsewhere like Taobao or Amazon or maybe Carousell
eg. https://www.amazon.com/Super-Power-S...PXBFKYM1HD0XN5

As feedback, would actually be nice if Asus sells the first party 2T2R+ WiFi Go! kit separately even if it is not bundled.

But those are the links at the potential buyers' perusal for the first party accessory via taobao.. Even the WiFi Go! screw holes are present on the C6H.

Edit: 3T3R alternative.

Keyword: " 华硕 2t2r / 3t3r "

The high gain antennas are decent in my own use with the signal strength and throughput. The magnetic base is handy.

Nice tb links!

Do note by default, the CH6H i/o plate has only the 2T/2R holes though.

Debug LED
Immensely useful now especially when UEFI releases are very new and frequent, still on the way to maturity. Note the 3D Mount screw hole at bottom of photo.




* At the minimum, do yourself a favour and get a mobo with diagnostic spot LEDs to make your life much easier when troubleshooting any new platform. Still, a proper debug LED display for POST codes is strongly advised.

Dual AM3 & AM4 Mounting Holes
As very clearly demonstrated here with the help of an old AIO cooler AM3 backplate.





...
Considering that AM4 bracket for AIOs are also on question for stock, this is very useful since can just get any AIO with AM3 and use.


Although still waiting for Mobo stocks. Hopefully I can build my RyZen rig this weekend.

Noirkw, seems you are really interested in Ryzen.

Good time to ask something about your Dominators, which version are these sticks? You can see them in the label with ver4.31 or ver.4.23 etc...

Just get the Crosshair and suddenly no more worries about hunting around for new cooling solutions.

Yes most likely getting the CH6 with a 1800X. Just wanted confirmation on the WiFi option. Not too sure on the ram I'd need to check on the dominators after work

Err, the thing about Corsair RAM kits are that they aren't always the same. That's why responsible mobo vendors will explicitly list the tested kit version separately.

Sometimes its version 1.x, 2.x, 3.x all using different ICs and branded under the same dominator or vengeance lpx label but it is actually a different product. I guess that's why Mac asked about kit version.

If you need some context: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=68811

I don't think corsair goes public (last was DDR3) on the IC supplier either because some consumers will pick. It's like when people learn about Intel vs. qualcomm modems on iphone 7 on their different speeds. Apple had to artificially cripple the faster qualcomm modem to stop consumers from buying hardware lottery and returning the slower one.

So best to check the label of your current kit (for version) before making the next step.

Encrypted11, did you check the date of the TS last edit?

That list is super out of date, by 6+ years.

Yees. Saying example ma. But I don't think there are public data out there on DDR4 RAM ICs for corsair. Initially moi thought he's looking to buy them (but it appears that he already has).

So I made the edit, left some comments there that if compatibility is a concern its a YMMV for him and that's heavily dependent on IC though whatever he has is fixed cause it appears that he isn't looking out for a new set in the market.

Original intent of my post - know what version you buy, IC type before committing.
Edited version: You have the RAMs already, I guess YMMV, the heavy weighing factors are still IC type.

Was simply thinking of helping him keep the 'right' sticks for his upcoming Ryzen rig.

Save him from selling and buying again later, waste time and $$$.
