Not to hijack someone's thread but I will be getting a 9900k it looks like with my Intel employee discount.
I see the Auros and Taichi. I don't mind paying slightly more for the Auros. But I have been out of the game for a while. Since 2010 when I build my current X58.
I see that the PCI-E 3.0 but only 8x8x when running SLI. IN the future should I decide to go that route, wouldn't I be bottlenecking the cards with PCI E x8x8. I'm shocked that these higher end boards only give you 8x8x instead of 16x16x
Also what is this stuff about VRMs and does the Gigabyte Auros have enough for 5Ghz on a 9900k?
