    The Z490-G is an mATX board, not ATX as stated in the comparison table at the end of the article.

    Which means that there is finally an mATX board that has what I'm after: 2x m.2, 6 SATA and onboard wifi. 2.5G ethernet is an added bonus. It's a pity that there's no AMD boards with that feature set, nor an alternative Intel board, but I prefer having everything built-in, ready to go. Looks like I've found my next motherboard.

    The ASrock X570M Pro4 has a short m.2 for wifi as well as 2 normal m.2 slots, if you need to keep the pcie slots free

    Still using a bank of six big spinning disks for bulk storage here - and run an optical drive, so liking that at least some of the Maximus XII range have gone back to 8 SATA headers. Although I guess the catch will be whether any are disabled when the M.2 ports are utilised.

    Need to look into that - which means, for the first time in a very long time, I'm at least thinking about what comes after my still excellent and utterly rock stable overclocked 6700K/Maximus VIII Hero. Do I want to go to all the expense and buy *another* 14nm processor though??
    BH6, BX6 2.0, BE6, BE6-II 2.0, ST6-RAID, BE6-II 2.0 (again), BD7-RAID, BD7II-RAID, IC7-G, IC7 Max3, AB9 QuadGT, IX38 QuadGT. IX58... Oh, b*ll*cks. RIP Abit
