Well I guess since you know what they paid could offer 220-230 say and see if they bite for a quick profit and you still get a great price.

Exactly my point. Some of these listings started at $800 and are now down to $450, hence my suspicion that they may be from Newegg sale. For people looking to flip these quickly to recoup costs, a great deal is likely to be had.

In any event, at $450 these boards are still a deal bnib for what they retail for.

I guess the lesson here is to watch Newegg for Asrock Rack sales if you want something.

This is the 4th time in about a year that I've seen them seriously drop prices on an Asrock Rack board. Usually its something that's going to be discontinued soon, or has recently been discontinued.

The first time I saw Newegg do this, I got a workstation board for $39 last April, and I still see them used on Ebay used for almost $200. I resisted the last couple times though, and lucky for my wallet this particular deal was sold out by the time I decided to buy.

I tried the first link above - it auto-declined up to $240. Past that... not worth it to me when I can just build literally any other server. The second link took a $220 offer with "3 competing offers" in queue right now.

I don't mind paying a LITTLE extra over the sale price but at $450+ I can just grab literally any other Xeon-D board on eBay right now.

My thought exactly. Or you can get a cheap X10 board and an 2630L v3 and have an all around more versatile platform with more dimms and better performance for cheaper than the cost of one of those boards.

First time back in stock at Newegg since the Christmas sale but at $979.99.

I only mention this because if the Asrock-Newegg theory is right/Newegg decides to drop this back to $179 on its own volitation, then those who missed out the last time can have a second bite.

Can lighting strike the same deal twice ?? :D

It has been back in stock for about a week at this price. There is still hope.
