    If the price comes down to 600 bucks for the combo, it's ok - not cheap, but ok ... but if it's similar like the ASRock Z490 AQUA (~1grand), then they didn't learn the lesson.

    Cause, although I'm not a fan of ARGEBEE, that kit(!) looks somehow charming... :)

    I like it, it's definately worth considering. However, what happens in 2 years time if the pump fails?

    I'm pretty sure that's a talon/wing.

    Is that water-block transferable to another Auros motherboard? I mean Intel does not really have a good record of supporting sockets over generations? It would be quite a waste if it is only on the Z490?

    Wasn't a fan of gigabyte style before but now this is the last drop. Cannot unsee.

    MSI is the worst in logos and Gigabyte second, this bird and especially the writing "Team up fight on" on some products kills me.
    Im ok with RGB, love it, but i hate idiotic corny one liners and badly made logos.
    ASUS been spot on on logos and colors so far.
