Default GA-P35-DS4 or P5K-E available in Canada?

Does anyone know if they have it in circulation up north?

No I tried to get one but not a single store (online included) have it in Canada. You might prefer to get a P5K Deluxe since importing a P5K-E will cost almost the same. Or if you're not in a hurry wait and keep hoping that it will be available soon.

As for the DS4 I haven't seen none online but I didn't asked in store ... but I don't expect the answer to be different.

(I also wanted a P5K-E :()

I've been able to get a P5K-E from my favorite local store. As for the DS4 it's apparently not available in North America (not only Canada).

I was browsing around this morning and found the P5K-E in stock at NCIX. Just search it on their website and it pops up under the ASUS category.

Yeah I'm not surprised they're not in stock. The guy at the shop had a hard time finding one (they became available only very recently) and I had to insist a little that I wanted that board and not another one. Anyway the board cost me 186$ (taxes included). Haven't tried it yet ... still need a PSU, HDD and DVD drive ;)

for those who might want more links :
in stock at ncix (thx link247)

also verify on shopbot.ca. They haven't added it yet but when more starts to have it you'll be able to spot where is the cheapest.

And now I (finally) found a review of the board. It's a pretty good review from TechSpot.com. They review 9 P35 boards, including the P5K-E.
