I'm ready to buy and it may as well be the lastest version?

First, see this FAQ entry from Asus.

The kind of information you need from people is their
board "revision" and the board "PCBA".

The board "revision" number refers to a number printed on the
fiberglass printed circuit board. If the copper traces on
the board are changed, then the revision number is changed.

The "PCBA" keeps track of the "shopping list" used to fill the
board. So, the RLZ capacitors referenced in the FAQ could be
on several different PCBAs of the same revision of board.
Judging by comments on this issue, a fairly large number of
boards are out there with these capacitors on them. The PCBA
will even contain an entry for the revision of board used,
so when the revision number is bumped up, the PCBA number
will be bumped up too.

This web page, if you scroll to the bottom, shows examples
of how the revision and PCBA are printed on the product.
Note that this info is not printed on the outside of the
box, so you have to convince your vendor to open the box and
check. (One of the advantages of buying locally.)

So, to you K8V purchasers out there, what revision and PCBA
do you find on your board, and are there the RLZ0333 capacitors
on your board or not ?
