Each to their own I guess, but I'm with Butcher9_9 in that $600 is alot for a motherboard. For $250 you can get something that's nearly as good, whilst avoiding cheap/nasty Asrock vanilla pov-VRM type boards. For anyone considering 11th Gen, given the limited OC headroom, also maybe better off saving even more $ and getting a B560 motherboard too. Last year, my Z490 board only cost me $200 and I run my 10700K @ 5.2ghz all-core (no AVX offset). Don't really need a $600 board to do achieve that.
