you pay for the higher quality VRM. that's pretty much what the differences in the fatality/phantom boards have always been. for z370 the k6 and i7, the boards were also pretty much the same port wise but the high end always uses better components and power delivery, therefore better overclockability for CPU and RAM. just cause they both have 12 phase power delivery, doesn't make them the same.
