Im sure youll get something else AM4 wise but there is a limit and you have to think they know a bit more than you may, especially as I doubt youd buy a £600 Ryzen board even if they did make one...
I dont understand that, why would a £600 board for intel sell but one for amd wouldnt. And in essence your paying £250 for the mb and around £250 for the waterblock.
And people are willing to pay £300 for an am4 board right now without a waterblock and all the extras for watercooling. And if people are willing to pay over £600 for a gpu that gets swapped out every new iteration then why different for a top top TOP end motherboard.
If you were in a position where you are going out and out ryzen be it these 7's or the 5's if they turn out to overclock more or even the raven ridges and were going to watercool wouldnt you spend that much for a solid base.
And please i know your into watercooling, show me anywhere that you can get a monoblock of that quality with those features anywhere outside of this motherboard.
