    That's an interesting layout but it makes sense for a board with a CPU socket as big as sTRX4 and the need for max peripherals.
    Also, is that triple 8-pin CPU power? Two on either side of the 24-pin and a third one in the top-right corner? Not to mention the dual 6-pin PCIe on the bottom edge of the board, most likely for extra power to the PCIe slots.

    That should be dual 10Gbit LAN?

    I really like that clear cmos/bios button on the backpanel. Is this feature available on other lower end motherboards? How good is it in practice.. compared to a normal jumper.

    That should be a standard on ALL mobos above 100$ , how expensive can it be ?

    Clearing CMOS on my Gigabyte B550 is night mare . It is a big joke , mobos from early 2000s had better options .

    Ok , forget on backpanel ....( in case some regular user uses it without knowlege ) but at least on motherboard itself!

    I really find hard to comprehend why this is not industry standard ....

    It's been a feature on ASUS higher-end boards for a long time now. My RoG Crosshair VI Hero (X370 chipset) from 2017 has the rear IO "Clear CMOS" button. Pretty much all of ASUS' Strix series boards also include it. TUF and PRIME boards usually don't. This is for AMD boards though, it may be slightly different on Intel boards depending on chipset since only Z-chipsets can overclock. Other brands have it too, although it's usually only on their higher-end series again.
    It works fine? You press it, wait a couple seconds, then boot into a reset BIOS. If a manufacturer screwed up the Clear CMOS, they shouldn't be making motherboards considering it's basically the nuke switch of last resort.
