    In my opionion the C7H is an enthusiast mainboard for people who should know what they do and who wan't to try beta software.

    Yes, but many also buy it for the bling or aesthetic
    But what many buyers maybe dont know about the top tier "overclocking motherboards" such as the CH7
    is that post/boot times is much longer before reaching windows compared to lets say Prime or TUF, and CH7 is also more difficult to overclock than more basic motherboards i mentioned above (for a inexperienced user), it all boils down to knowledge and experience, not so much the amount of power phases and bios tabs (how far a normal user can push it with ambient cooling)
    They do indeed target users who are into overclocking and tinkering, and users that just want a awesome looking system
    I personally like the more basic motherboards to play with, simply because they swallows everything i throw at them
    The reason why it takes longer time to reach windows with a CH7 compared to a prime motherboard, is that's its more stuff in bios and on the PCB that needs to go through the bios post process before entering windows (90% of settings and features normal users never will touch)
    Overclocking performance: CH7 is pretty much identical to a lower tier Asus counterpart under normal ambient conditions...

    Will probably be buying MSI next time.

    Really bad support, no communication, buggy bios, slow boot times into Win10 (known bug with 3900x that still hasn't been addressed, guessing it's related to PCI-E 4, probably needs microcode from AMD)

    I've owned the Crosshair V Formula, 270H Strix, Maximus VI Hero Z87, and a few non-ROG boards going back to 2009- I'll be getting MSI next round

    See you on
