    When doing a motherboard benchmark, any chance of seeing if ECC memory is enabled? These are stonking home workstation/server chips for the money but I don't want to lose ECC as a feature.

    I think after a good read around that my long in the tooth X58 and X5645 work pc are going to be Zen based later this year. I like the look of this chipset - fits my needs well
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    No comparisons to Zen1 or an x370 board?

    Alright.

    What is the purpose of the backplate behind the VRMs?

    It doesn't seem to make contact with the motherboard for extra cooling, is it needed for extra support for the heatsinks or just something completely unnecessary?

    Re: Aorus X470 Gaming 7 Wifi

    Why no comparison between this and a x370 and/or b350 with the same CPU for the benchmarks?

    According to the Gigabyte website, it does support ECC RAM...
