I somewhat feel uncomfortable when seeing AM4 socket in white. It looks not that expensive >_<" and reminds me of socket 478, 754 era. But UX wise, good for builder to spot the notch.

That's a name I haven't heard for quite some time, in consumer market that is. It would be iconic if they made it purple like it used to.

It looks like they put PCI on new chipset, and am I seeing mSATA port too?

Easy and cheap to do. Two differently key'd M.2 slots.
