    On a more positive note, the Aorus is the best of the bunch when overclocked.
    Apart from the one test that mattered, the real world performance one where it was still behind the other systems.

    I can't help but feel that the person who would need this sort of connectivity is the type who also needs extra cores, so would be better off going with Threadripper, as they not only offer more cores for cheaper, but they offer the connectivity for less too, as they have just..all the PCIe lanes.

    Meh, I need an old, bog standard PCI slot and this almost always relegates me to cheaper boards. Hopefully by the time I feel the need to upgrade my motherboard my old sound card will have been bettered and be worth upgrading but it's just a shame when you spend a lot of money on something decent to last a long time and it's just the bloody interface becoming obselete that creates issues.

    pci-e x1.0 is'nt obsolete, its a gaming board, they suck in general, you have ethernet router for your internet so you only need a rubbish onboard wifi, and built in soundcard because you are probably only going to use a rubbish gaming headset with virtual surround
