    Interestingly, the Gigabyte BIOS updates appear to enable PCIe 4.0 support on existing X470 and B450 Motherboards.

    Nobody else a bit unnerved by the fact that these boards tend to have chipset cooling

    PCie 4.0 is double the bandwidth. Add in a fast m.2 drive and that will be the reason. They will be configured in BIOS I reckon to only power up when the chips get hot. You could easily treble the bandwidth from previous setups in one of these boards. Plus these are not the lower end boards either
