    As I'm in the market for a solid X399 motherboard, I came straight to this review from Dan and Kyle. Great review and full of useful insight, but I was wondering if either of your two (Kyle and Dan) have had any change of opinion on this board or if you pretty much stand right where you were a month ago when this review was published?

    The motherboards I've been looking into besides the ROG STRIX x399-E were the ASUS Prime x399-A, ASRock Taichi x399, the Gigabyte Auros Gaming 7 x399 and of course the ASUS Zenith x399. The ASUS Prime x399-A is currently hovering at $290 on Amazon, and since I'm looking at picking up a new case and cooler to cover the possibility of the EATX form factor and match the TR4 socket, the Zenith pushes the limits of my budget a bit.

    So Kyle and Dan, have either of you had a change of heart concerning this MB, or is it still a solid choice? Also, what opinions do other [H]ard x399 users currently have? I'm darn near ready to pull the trigger on this, so you input and opinions are greatly appreciated.

    What is your setup? Don't see anything in your signature?
