    Nice to see the 3x ultra m.2 and a pile of x16 slots. They look like semi future proof but who knows these days.

    From what i know, it's the other way around, it's better to buy the first revision,newer ones get manufacture cost "tweaks",and get lower quality with each revision.

    @Amx85
    the only ones that needed that was 970/980 chipset, and asus/gigabyte (990 chip).

    one reason for me not to get gigabyte/msi boards , as they almost all the time offer "less" than comparably priced asus/asrock boards.
    nor do i like gigabytes business model of shipping out R1.0 units with "higher" quality/performing parts (e.g. different vram chip) so that they get good reviews, then dropping R 1.1/2.0 with cheaper parts without lowering retail prices or even stating the difference to consumers on website/box
    (just mentioning rev number).

    seen this myself with Nv cards since gtx700 (didnt have gigabyte cards before that).




    besides that, for the past few years almost all oc/gaming/premium boards from asrock seem to have a couple things "done" better compared to others (vrms, "power" related components) while offering same/more phases as well.

    so if one company offers things like 12K caps (vs 10K), double stacked mosfets (vs single) etc, all at a similar price, then i know what i'll get...
    not saying ill ever run a cpu under LN2, but if someone offers you a porsche/ferrari/lambo vs a MB or Lexus, would you say no, just because you cant go 200mph all the time?? :)
