    Hello Hilbert,

    the 66€ price tag must be wrong

    Yep, 66 € is a bit low. And if it is this cheap, I'd be worried about quality. Other than that, this is a board that could run two RTX 3090 with one free slot in between, cards in slots 1 and 5.

    Sweet. A new motherboard for an older CPU with many built security issues inhibiting it's work loads.

    Hard pass on anything Intel until maybe 2021-22....

    So in fact Asus take a server board from his catalog, paint it in black, add more rad on the hot point, and charge 100 Euro more for the "workstation" on the box.
    (they don't even have added lane wired on 2 PCIe as they were doing in the past...).
