EATAX should be more common. It allows for more features on the board. The Extreme is a perfect example. 2 internal type C USB, 2 internal USB 3.0, etc.

So having owned the Aorus Z390 Master, I will explain why I chose to go ASUS this time:

1) The Aorus Extreme Z490 was actually a bit more expensive than the ASUS Z490 Extreme
2) I chose the Gigabyte Z390 Master last time because they had by far the best quality boards and heatsinks
3) While Gigabyte has improved their BIOS, there were still issues with the Gigabyte Z390 board BIOSs, and even to this day there are still issues not resolved
4) ASUS has significantly improved their design for Z490. They got a lot of criticism for Z390 and have listened
5) The ASUS Z490 Extreme has more fan headers, more SATA ports (8), more internal USB C and USB 3.0 headers, the extra slot for NvMe, and has the awesome ASUS BIOS

Interesting.. I have never had a Gigabyte board before (or Gigabyte anything really). Was wondering about their BIOS but I guess your experience confirms my concerns about Gigabyte.

If only these damn 10900K will come in stock.
