    If it's a matter of $20-50, get the Pro. 60A as opposed to 50A FETs.

    EDIT: and SiC620A as opposed SiC651A powerstage apparently.

    Probably look to sit it around 5.1 I think.

    Yeah I had some fun alright! Wow, windows did not like the swap from my previous Rog Maximus board....or perhaps AI Suite spat it, or chipset driver issues.....dunno but I had lots of freezes etc. All good after drivers uninstalled/reinstalled and all up and going now :thumbup:

    Now to wait until next year for a 3080...../sigh

    As a general rule of thumb, you should always do a clean install between different generations/chipsets.

    I used to do rule of thumbs and all that stuff. If I can get away without doing it (for now) I will.

    I think my time is due soon however for a new install. Just got so much stuff going on it's a pita.

    With the speed of storage these days on solid state - no matter what form SATA or M.2, the biggest inconvenience of reinstalling OS is the virtual non existence of optical drives so creating bootable USB drive with the OS on it.

    The great thing about these and other asus boards that have the Dimm 2 is you can load windows and just swap the Dimm 2 to any other asus card that supports this with an OS installed .

    Even that's not too big a problem really with the tools available to make it quite a easy task.

    There's been no real noticeable benefit on the NT kernel ever. Certainly not since XP and the shift from the old style registry database to a proper one.

    Reinstalling is more of a 9x legacy holdover.

    Source: nearly 2 decades of switching mobos and comparing fresh installs side by side.
    Obviously you must install the hdd driver before swapping, and it's wise to remove the old chipset drivers/add new ones, but as far as performance goes, there's practically nothing in it anymore.

    I knocked this together in 2005.

    iirc I moved that install from different chipsets (via/intel), hdds, and cpus (amd/intel) with no issues.

    Yeah neither did I but apparently they have been doing it for a few years.

    Looks like a very budget pcb/component setup with a focus on their aesthetic. I guess it makes sense for people who don't OC and want something that looks like their case. Much better options around that price range for people who care about performance :D
