There are stacks of really good matx cases though, which is the cruel part. In a counter argument though, unless you're an extreme (dice/ln2), an avid high mhz memory overclocker or have a specific feature requirement, the boards available in mATX are actually fine. Though I do agree it is a shame that there aren't any extreme mATX boards anymore, I think most people are buying boards way over the top of what they actually need with no use benefit. There seem to be so many people with $500+ boards to only go into the bios and load xmp, and then seemingly only plug in their keyboard and mouse. I run my 5950X on a B550 mortar, with 3800C16 dual rank memory (I've had it past 4000C16 on 2x DR or 4xSR sticks 1:1 as well) running a Hydra OC profile at 4.7Ghxz 1.35v game clocks. It has 802.11AX, 2.5G LAN, I run nvme boot + 2x4TB QVO SSDs in RAID0, run my Oculus through the USB C port, it does everything I need without fault and cost $200. That's freeing up $300 better spent on faster memory, more storage, more cores, etc. Previously I ran my 3900X for years, then the 5950X - both overclocked on a X570M Pro4 (sold working fine), and even the B450M steel legend ($100 board) in my partners pc with a 5700G with an decent all core OC and four sticks of 3200C14 (she is in it for the rgb) has had no trouble. All solid boards in their on right, especially for the money.
