Yeah, I just watched some of BuildZoid's videos on YouTube (channel Actually Hardcore Overclocking) where he describes in excellent detail how good the VRM is on the Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Elite through to the Ultra.

I've been spending hours going back and forth comparing the Taichi and AORUS boards, and the AORUS boards always come out on top very easily.


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.
