    Servers? If i have to keep something switched on 24/7 i m not sure if i prefer a generic micro atx board or a regular z490 gaming with beefed up power circuit?

    Dual 10G LAN is pretty cool to find for a platform like this but an odd choice for consumer-grade parts. But hey, I guess if it's cheaper than a Xeon-equivalent platform, why not?

    I can't believe my eyes - a motherboard that actually LOOKS LIKE A MOTHERBOARD!

    Wow man, I was entirely looking for something just like this for an X570 motherboard. These things are harder to find than hens teeth outside of cheapo OEM or expensive server stuff.
    Ended up buying the cheapest X570 board by Asrock because of the good value and no RGB-that-I-don't-need-or-want features.
    I would happily choose a beige computer case and green PCB's without issue, if it was faster than the identical-priced black/white PC with RGB this and that blinding me on the desk.

    Thank-you ASRock, now please make some consumer-facing (not just 'Rack' line-up) motherboards like this for AMD users. We don't all need or want fancy stuff, we don't all have windowed cases. Some folks like me prefer to work in the relative silence a high-dollar sound-deadened windowless case provides.
