I think we should start another thread with cases.

Thanks, Juraj!

We are talking about huge really enormous price differences here (US vs EU)

Following Michael's shopping list:

Samsung 860 evo 2TB (MZ-76E2T0B/AM)  229,99 USD  vs  Samsung 860 evo 2TB (MZ-76E2T0B/EU)  327,48 USD (best case scenario)

Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB M2 NVME (MZ-V7E1T0BW) 149,99 USD  vs  Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB M2 NVME (MZ-V7E1T0BW) 200USD

I know that's how it works but still....madness

before buying any of parts I checked on this web https://pcpartpicker.com/   here you can find how prices changing and pick in the lowest value :)

Just another note...

Q: Why the price difference between US \/ EU?

A: Price tags in US are w/o tax (but tax still gets collected, % dependent on the state law)
VS
EU where VAT is included on the price tag (also dependent on the state & can be fully excluded for a business/company).

Finally, incorporate all these amateurish dealings - hours spent on learning, choosing, buying and assembling the box... warranty considerations... doing it once every few years. There's mostly a loss.

So, for real there's not that much of a difference & amateurs, especially the first on the front (beta testers aka canon fodder) always pay extra for schooling ;)

Unless you're in a 3rd world state. There the tech is expensive while human labor is cheap.

Finally, a tip :)
Get to know your local administration, laws and economics 101.
For now enjoy it and next time it's worth considering, if it might just be better to get friends with your local dealer. Finding optimum between price and quality ain't easy, especially when "brands" start abusing their "fame". 

Wish you well

Stop what you are doing and burn that thing before it comes to life at night and sucks your soul out.

Correct me if I'm wrong but
Amd gets it's chips from TSMC which is in Taiwan.
Nvidia gets their chips from Samsung which is in Korea.
Intel will be getting their chips from TSMC soon as well.

These chips also get ship to other countries for different processes. Most things aren't made in the US.

I do actually live about 45 mins from Micron which makes the dies for some RAM.

Hi Guys,
I'm just exploring my MB
and not sure about this - ATX_12V2 and ATX_12V1
I know that I need to connect the big cable from PSU to ATX, but also need to connect to these two pins(ATX_12V2 and ATX_12V1)?

maybe this 2x4pins is for overclocking? I'm not planning to overclock.

AMD get's their Zen 2 chips from TSMC, check.

Nvidia gets their chips from TSMC and not Samsung. The memory modules are a mixture of Micron and Samsung chips but the GPU itself has so far only been manufactured at TSMC. That said, there is speculation that Ampere (or whatever the next architecture is called) will be at least to an extent produced by Samsung as well - It might have something to do with the fact Samsung is already using the EUV process (I think?) and TSMC being overcrowded.

As for Intel and TSMC, I don't recall what was said but I think some of the chipsets are produced at TSMC. Other than that, for Intel its all in house aka US.

Hope you don't mind me nitpicking :)

My 3970x just posted :) all 64gb of g skill neo ram recognized, thank goodness.  Now I just need to get the m.2 chips in there, get my os on and start doing some testing.

The Aorus eXtreme trx40 is a thing of beauty.  Unfortunately even with my giant BeQuiet 900 pro case (officially xl-atx friendly) I don’t think I could do quad blowers.  The last pci slot lines up with the eighth case slot but I think I’d need a ninth.  The motherboard is adjustable up and down in this case but I’m in the top slot so I’d have to drill a new hole and probably run into other clearance issues anyway.  Oh well, quad was a distant possibility since I haven’t found a gpu renderer that treats me as well as corona.  Also the giant mobo blocks all cable routing grommets, heh.  I will post pics tomorrow.

HAha, this has been case for almost very case on market :- ). I've been putting SSI-EEB server boards like Asus Z9/Z10 into Define cases and they totally obstruct everything, but "fits technically".

Post pics ! And congrat for getting running.

Meanwhile I am still trying to get Aorus, wrote to official Gigabyte distributor.
