    Was hoping to see a MSI Godlike board but doesn't seem to be one, yet. The Biostar one looks interesting but only having 4 SATA ports is really disappointing, not sure why they would only have 4 instead of 8, even for a X299 board.

    I'd would honestly love to see a plain old green pcb motherboard with the base x299 feature set and not a single thing more

    I won't be happy until the entire board is clear plexi with 10 RGB LEDs per inch.

    I hear rumors that a couple of these boards might come with 5Gb/10Gb NICs onboard...

    I'll pay tree-fiddy to someone who can make a high end motherboard which looks like a motherboard and not a vegas night club. I really don't want any decorative lights at all.

    I'm guessing the asus prime may be the best bet at this point?

    Exactly, my case has no windows, so I just buy server or workstation boards, I have work to do, LED's are something you cover with tape.

    I just want to know if it's on or off.

    This. They are going really overboard with the damn RBG bling factor on EVERYTHING now. I been a gamer for nearly 30 years. When did gamer suddenly think they needed all these flashing lights everywhere? I have never though this shit was cool. I don't care if you can turn it off. The fact they have it means they probably jacked the price up $50 on some of these boards for $5 worth of leds.

    There are some damn good looking motherboards in this thread and some atrocities as well. I look forward to torturing some of them.

    Gigabyte ones are ugly AF, most of the ASUS ones look pretty good.

    I liked most of the ASUS models, ASRock's X299 Formula OC and I thought the MSI XPOWER Gaming AC board looked good in particular.

    The RAID key thing bothered me, but by the look of it you still get Intel fake raid with these boards. You just need the dongle to enable RSTe CPU enhanced raid.

    I noticed a lot of the higher priced boards have wireless AC built in however I think it's only 867mbps. I already have an AC1900 Asus USB adaptor than does 1300mbps on 5ghz so I'm going to pass on those boards unless I decide to spring for faster memory support or better aesthetics.
