Ton of people smarter than me comparing Z390 boards here, worth a peek if you haven't checked it already.
4007 posts. Omg.

Yeah, the Taichi was the first board I checked out after discovering the lack of PS/2 ports on the AORUS boards because of what people say about its VRM. Should I be concerned that much about the VRM though if I'm only aiming for maybe 5 GHz with air cooling? Good air cooling, but still.

Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.
