After a bit of research, a New Zealand site states 11/16/2018.
I have same problem. It was at Amazon.com (short link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JGCSMJX/) for nice price ($599), but i can't import motherboard and CPU at the same time (TAX...), so i got motherboard in DEC'18 and still waiting when CPU back in stock. It's March already! MARCH Intel!
I talk with Amazon Support and they don't know when it arrive. I check A LOT sites in US, EU and around world - it's out of stock everywhere (except New Zeland - but they don't respond on e-mails AND shipping probably cost too much).
I understand that i9-9900K is Intels' hly cow now, but i want my 44 PCI-E lines! And i don't want 28 PCI-E lines of i7-7820X!
