ASRock is seriously ramping up. I am following their stuff more and more in the recent times. As you have said Tom they could work on the design, but if they are competitive with the price many people that use X299/X399 really don't care how their PC looks. Just price/performance.

I hope Asrock keeps on this track! I'm an Asus fanboy, but I'd love more options. MSI seems to always make rather huge mistakes, so I wouldn't touch them with a 10 ft pole, and Gigabyte is ok I suppose, but not in Asus' league. Options are good!

They are using the AMD offset voltages so if you want to overclock Id actually say in this rare instance they are not the best. That and the VRM fan is far too annoying.

Everything else about the Asus is epic though and sadly they could fix it all with BIOS - doubt they will because they havnt with normal Ryzen yet :/

whilst I'm someone that likes the looks of their system I'm half tempted to go for this and just plastidip it or something to get rid of the silkscreen, I'm tempted to go with 4 GPUs too if im entirely honest, slightly for looks, slightly for it lasting a while and so on, having said that I do rather enjoy benchmarking so that comes into it too more than the above really, the asrock seems to be the best board though so far, though I'd like to see if the asrock Fatal1ty X399 pro gaming is any good too since 10GBe would be handy without having to eat into PCI-E lanes :P
