    I don't mind spending some $$ on a decent motherboard, but those price points are trash considering the lack of longevity of intels previous sockets (1/2 generations only).

    I'm late to this party but just saw a lot of Z690 motherboards have 5, yes 5 M.2 slots fo NVMe SSDs. Some 4 and some 3 but it looks like high end boards are pushing 5. That in itself is nearly reason enough for me to upgrade so I can fuck off all sata cables for good.

    I am going to wait for ddr4 and ddr5 comparisons. If the difference is not huge, will stick with some z690 ddr4

    If I'm going to spend so much on this platform I want to be certain I get the right mb/ram combo. Stuff paying a premium for pre order.

    I went with a 12900KF and a Strix A DDR4.
    In the past I had some fun with a Z170P-D3, a 7700K and some DDR3 so I’m hoping this will be fun too.
