    I was just thinking it could do with some RGB, and I expect EVGA might actually be able to do it tastefully this time.
    Whether they do or not is another matter....

    One negative is that this motherboard only seems to come packing two DIMM slots.
    This was already guessed at in the last thread on this.

    Can't see the point of a full ATX board with only two DIMMs.

    I guess for extreme overclocking, two DIMMs might be slightly easier due to shorter traces but the difference must be minimal and I'd rather the choice.

    (Obviously driving all four DIMMs will lead to lower memory clocks, but my point that even someone building with fast memory - and who uncharacteristically for high-end buyers wants to keep the build for a few year - wants to upgrade to more memory later - with the full knowledge that clocks and timings might have to go down then - doesn't have the option with this.)

    The board is for:
    - extreme OC
    - people who think an extreme OC board will make their games run faster

    It's not intended for daily driver use

    so they link the PCH VRMs chipset via a big heatpipe. On my MSI x570 ACE it just seems to make the chipset heat up and spins up the chipset fan as opposed to taking heat away from the chipset to be cooled by the main airflow over the VRMs. The big silly mirror and plastic shroud they put over the top of the VRM doesn't help matters mind. I might take a dremel to it soon tbh.
