    Did you not take any extended warranty?

    1 year is fine, you can always add warranty later. Also remember this only has two m.2 slots. Limiting them both to 256gb I don’t think is a great idea. I plan on putting a 1tb m.2 in my second slot later.

    I cannot return the system because I live in the UAE and will buy from Hidevolution. Don't know if they have a 30 day return policy.

    I've seen the rise of AW and it's eventual downfall. I, for one, am rooting for AW to make a grand comeback. This might be their last chance considering they have some stiff competition now.

    Noted. Thanks

    That's why I will order from Hidevolution because their customisation is pretty solid.

    I don't think they even have it listed yet. By the time you can order there may be a review out somewhere, assuming someone gets it by Jan 29th.

    I would have but will probably be quite a big longer until you get it. After watching Linus’s video he did a mini teardown, a repaste would be very easy if required. Although I probably wouldn’t use LM. The cooling looks top notch so heres hoping I dont need too! Again though I can always return it.

    Will LM void the warranty you think?

    Don’t think its shipping until mid/late Feb.

    According to one of the videos maybe, Frank said something regarding a special paste on the cpu that you need to preserve warranty.
