    Also, prices. I'm asking to make features standard on today's Prime/Strix/TUF boards that are $200-$350 that were standard on yesterday's $300 Maximus boards from a few years ago. As everyone knows, economy worldwide isn't great. Inflation has risen faster than wages, pandemic, etc and so on. There's still plenty of features to leave exclusive to Maximus, but these (PCIE eject button, LED code display, CMOS reset button, BIOS flashback) are kind of critical to basic use and overclocking which is what Z series chipset is for (or even B/H chipsets if you're overclocking memory).

    Z690I Gaming Wifi. Stacked M2 slots and the sata card are the worst idea ever. Terrible cooler compatibility because of the height. The M2 stack is having so many problems for many people, it should be recalled and replaced with a correct working design. This board costs $650 AUD is my area has no backplate like all the other ITX boards out there. The build quality is also really bad with this board.

    Needs reinforced 24pin/usb3/memory slots (you do the 8pin but not the 24 weird)
    A backplate like all the other ITX boards on the market.
    Go back to the old layout with no stacked or raised cards. m2_2 on the rear.
    Reduce the cost, Your parts cost too much for what you get.
    The promotion photos of this board also show that in the m.2 stack and the IO cover are a color logo (by rgb lighting or print-green/red/yellow/white) but is not the case. its more a mirror and white logo. Looks nothing like the promotion image. Even with a case with RGB lighting right next to it. Just has a mirror effect.

    My new z690EG has no way to swap bios versions except by using the button on the motherboard itself. There’s no way to change bios chips via the bios which needs to be implemented again and standard for all ROG boards. With my vertical gpu mount in place, I can’t get to the switch to change bios chips.

    Been around. Switched to z590 and now z690. Big improvement over my rampage boards. Loved those too though.

    For the love of GOD why is there still no option in the bios to disable M2 NVME Drives? Please forward this as I have the Strix Z690 Gaming A with 4 M2 Slot and I have them all filled I then proceeded to try and install Windows 11 and it will not allow me to install Windows 11 with multiple SSD's/NVME's attached I had to remove every single M2 Drive from the motherboard and pull of the thermal material from my brand new 980 Pro's.

    Do the BIOS team know how much a pain in the ass this is? This is not a new issue it has been going on since M2 and SSD drives existed and the issue of trying to install a clean OS to one of these drives, Why is it so difficult to implement a bios switch to completely disable SSD's and M22 drives?

    Perhaps consider releasing boards that actually run memory in all four sockets at the advertised speeds
    Z690 is proving a nightmare for memory - now is that down to the board and bios or the memory ?

    I ask as I see loads of issues relating to memory on z690, far more than is usual or normal for a new platform.
    Before looking for suggestions about new features I’d suggest actually getting the current ones advertised to do as it says on the box tbh
    Once that has been achieved only then should you look at adding new bells and whistles - that my penneth*

    Lightbulb For motherboard design improvement purpose.

    Sorry may incorrect forum but there are something ASUS must be urgently fixing all motherboards.

    1. ROG DIMM.2 were useless on next Intel 600/700 Series chipset especially ADL-X / SPR -AP.
    Could ASUS redesign NVME SSDs PCIE 4.0/5.0 seat like Gigabyte or Asrocks ?
    It will better to replace ROG DIMM.2 slot with more DDR5 slots. The place of ROG DIMM.2 bring more heat
    when system running. If you running 24/7 the place of ROG DIMM.2 may reduce lifespan of your NVME SSD.

    ROG DIMM.2 position from picture above when system running.
    Both DIMM.1 and DIMM.2 NVME SSDs were very hot!
    ( Would you please see underline drives )
    It may reduce lifespan of both NVME SSDs.

    2. First and Third PCI E x 16 Slot must be far from motherboard logo and buttom of the board for support 4 Slot card such as
    RTX 3090Ti / ADA LOVER / HOPPER RTX / AMD RDNA 3 79XTX / Intel Arc 900 Series etc. GPU TDP may go beyond 600W under
    Intel ATX 3.0 standard.


    3. Redesign VRM heat spreader for Cover ADL-X (16-24 C) / SPR - AP (26-36C ) up to 270 - 350 W TDP.

    and the last


    " Please do not place CMOS battery just like ASUS RAMPAGE VI Extreme again. It was very terrible and ugly design.
    So sad for users whom choose custom loop setup. They'll need to re-build their system for changing CMOS battery only!

    OMG! Who was the R6E design ? "

    OMG WHO DESIGN ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME CMOS Battery placement!? (asus.com)
