The time has finally arrived. After much anticipation, customers can now order the new BOLT X with both Intel and AMD configurations.

Nice, Alex.      Is it possible to mount a fan under the graphics card, in the added space ?   I think no, but had to ask.

It is possible, small 80mm fans or something but honestly not needed since there are so many vented holes and a gap to allow air to flow in.

@ Alex: the Workstation configurator still shows the Bolt 3 Pro as an option even though it takes you to a Bolt X when you choose it.Chilling.Smile

Been waiting for the Bolt X for months, finally glad it's out.

Placed an order a few days ago, I just had to opt for the priority build I can't wait much longer for this beauty.

I'll be ordering one in about a week if all goes well. Love the new design Alex. Also I noticed there is no option to put a 7600k cpu in the bolt x. Will this be fixed?

We stopped offering the 7600K due to lack of demand from customers. There are good other options to consider, even Ryzen at that price point.

If you're waiting for the X299 BOLT X units to ship with the new Intel CPUs, I would place an order now as there is already a number of orders pending on a backlog.

I placed an order already, do you know are the TWO main m.2 are located on the backside of the board? I picked hard line loop, which means it will be difficult to access to it?

Excellent!

I recently moved for a contract, and after the end of the contract I'm not sure I want to pay customs on Mrs. Bojingles again, so it might be an excuse to upgrade to a Bolt X. LOL

That explains your absence from the forums.  Big%20Smile

Yep, I'm in Iceland for about 10 months - probably one of my crazier ventures, I'm getting too old for this. LOL

And I like the sound of Bojingles Jr. - though I think my wallet might have just put you on the "black list." Hahaha

There are cutouts on the motherboard tray on the rear to allow access to the M.2 ports.

Really impressive. I've checked the features and I've to admit that I'm blown away. Just look at this features: Up to 64GB DDR4 System Memory and 1GB LAN Port. Great job, probably my fav
