    Yeah, this is also my first AMD rig since 2001. But it is working out very well so far. I'm glad that they are putting their foot in Intel's ass!!!!

    M.2 Difference

What really varies on the Extreme from the Hero that really matters? A bunch more fan headers? A little extra space for the layout thanks to a larger PCB? An A added to the audio chipset that still doesn't officially support Dolby because Asus is too cheap to pay the licensing fee? The only real difference besides the PCB size is the second M.2 slot. Can it boot off of M.2 in RAID? I honestly don't know but that would be the only benefit to having dual M.2 slots, at least in my opinion.

    Extreme is simply a name given to define one board from another but doesn't actually guarantee or state that one is better than the other. A good example of this practice is with internet companies calling their services, "high speed", when what they are offering doesn't even reach 5Mbit. Another good example of the same thing are car companies calling these 4-door 4 cylinder cars, "sports models". They aren't performance vehicles at all! It's plain and simple, marketing. The term, "gaming" added to a motherboard name is another and there are plenty of examples of how a name can sell a product which actually doesn't truly represent what that product is or does and how it performs.
    Not sure how they did it but both M.2 are rated for PCIE x4 vs all the other boards to date only 1 is X4 rated speed the rest are X2 speeds.

    Those 4 PCI-E lanes have to come from somewhere. There still isn't any M.2 RAID outside of Threadripper boards.
