    Asus has ruined the Rog Hero with the cuts to make a profit... Somehow the E-Game is better and cheaper ... Will the E Gaming VRM is better than the Hero?

    fantastic review again HH.

    imho, the looks aren't "lackluster" they're superb.
    not everyone needs contrasting colors, and the rgb implementation is there if you want it.

    the biggest problem here isn't the board, it's the CPU in the case of the I-9 vs the VRMs.

    the smart move (to me) if you're going Coffee Lake is to go the I-7, give up HT and gain within 0.01-0.03 of the performance of the I-9
    and either spend that money on a board like this or buy a better gpu.

    Are there any Z390 boards with 8 sata ports, I find 6 very limiting.

    TBH I have no idea what they're doing with STRYX, GAMING and HERO brands.
