    This strikes me as tech that could develop its idea and implementation in time, the current pricing seems expensive and I'm not a fan of soldering expensive parts, maybe a future GPU and future VRM expansion could be designed to fit together easier.

    This has got me thinking though... imagine some kind of modular motherboard where you could switch out the CPU socket, VRM section or expansion slots etc. so you could upgrade parts of the board yourself whether it be for better overclocking or newer components. Now I know the issue of compatibility would be an uphill climb, and there will always be tech that throws everything out of the water and you would need to replace it all eventually, but if the boards, CPU and chipset were all designed with this in mind, then perhaps a socket replacement or two before needing a new board could be made possible in the future? It would make investing in a top end board far more attractive for many.

    Isn't it easier to invest those money in a better quality gpu or motherboard?

    Yes, but this is only for hardcore overclockers - they aren't interested in just performance, but in pushing hardware to extreme limits. This is never going anywhere near mainstream or enthusiast markets.

    As a complete product I would agree, but there is always the possibility of some ideas or execution of them filtering down.
    It happens with high-end mainstream products, so this can potentially benefit the rest of us in time.
