Asus should turn all the connectors though 90 degrees so they can be used when running 4 cards.

Using NVidia cards is a pain but AMD cards are even worse as they often have less clearance underneath. This is not the card manufacturers fault though, it is very poor motherboard design.
I dont agree. It could cause more issues pointing them down at the bottom, quite a few cases for example would clash with it for starters.

You are very rare in the fact that you buse 4 cards but after having a look at that board myself this morning using the 4th slot, I could get fans and the I/O in easily with only the USB3 being difficult - you can buy an adapter for that though

Pairing up this Asus Rampage Board with my new I9-7900X ten core processor need help

Got I9-7900x ten core processor and this board.
Just wondering what I should do for RAM with all that power ??? I also have a Asus GeForce 1080 GTX 8gb ROG strix OC edition with water coolant through out. Just need to choose RAM.

What Tom used for the review would be a good place to start, Corsair LPX 3200.

I personally prefer using Corsair Dominator Platinum memory at higher clockspeeds but this will only give tiny increases/poor value for money over what was used for the review.
