At this point its not about a performance gain its the feature set that really sets it apart.

Exactly. And ROG boards are famous for their reliability, quality and OC'ing availability. (Not talking about LN2,as that is not for all)

~~This~~

 

I guess there is not much room to play with perfomance on this platform, so feature set has to carry the day.

This board certainly has the features on it,.............
