Why only go with 5G ethernet controller, rather than full 10G? Also why place the OLED on top of the I/O shield? Once you put a rear fan in a case, half of it will be blocked off...

Really simple answers...
Because of cost. And because where else would you put that won't get blocked by something else? It will get covered the least on the IO shield.

Beautiful board Asus. Though not worth the insane cost it will inevitably cost.

Between the CPU socket and the PCI-E slot... Just like the Z390 Maximus Formula. Looks better overall in my opinion and better overall presentation.

Yeah look again and tell me it'll fit on the AMD board in that spot.

That doesn’t mean it wouldn’t have been impossible for them to design it that way though...

The Rog logo will be partially covered by long GPUs, the IO covered by fans. There is literally no where on a mobo you can display the led they have without a component covering it.

It's a water cooled board. Why would you want a 120mm exhaust fan? you'd highly likely want it in your loop connected to your rads, and who would bother with a 120mm rad in the back?

Just because it’s a water cooled board, doesn’t mean it won’t work as a normal board and therefore be used as it. I’ll most likely get it and I don’t custom water cool.

Just because something is designed for a specific purpose in mind, but works without it, doesn’t mean you have to do it Hence having a rear exhaust fan

Yet the Intel counterpart motherboard I linked above does it
