@Black Haru small typo in the USB table for the Thunderbolt chipset, if the one on the picture is correct, 5 instead of 3.

Other than pcie4, is there an advantage to getting a rocket lake processor? From what I'm seeing in this review, it would seem that the 10th gen 10 core is still faster.

Also, I'd to see a memory overclocking section that shows how high the ram will clock in gear 1 and a comparison with the benchmark results from gear 2 at the same frequency.

It's shame that these Z590 are so expensive, they could sell well if they came in at the right price.. Intel wants to make up the loss margin on the CPUs I guess.

That VRM fan seems idiotic in placement...is that literally flush mounted on a solid block of metal? How is it supposed to blow any air? Much better if it was mounted to the rear IO panel exhausting air.

Well....no. I think its common knoledge that rocket lake is a dud of a processor. Only the 6 core makes any kind of sense, and only because intel allows for faster RAM on locked chipsets with them. Thats it.

That's the conclusion I have come to as well. I'm waiting for zen 4 and ddr5, but am hopeful Intel can get back to at least being on par with AMD. I'm not a fanboy (anymore) and simply look for the best price vs performance, but with zen 4 ddr5 on the way, I'm waiting for good deals on a zen 3 system.
