    1) I thought that Kaby Lake increased the native DDR4 support to 2400MHZ (up from 2133MHZ)? You even say this (below the incorrect chart) in the Key Features list that it supports DDR4 2400MHZ!

    2) Also isn't there USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 3.1 Gen 2? Could you include an explanation of the differences between these in your article? Edit: Oh, you mention this on a much, much later page in the article.

    3) Can you please include mention of what revision the Display Port and HDMI ports are on the back I/O panel, thanks.

    I don´t like the idea, that M.2 SSD is covered, if the controller is running hot anyways.

    Now it´s covered with even lower heat dissipation.
