    21 ports, once all the headers are accounted for [iirc]... how many do you think you need?

    It's the mid-low-end boards where they're stingy af on ports.

    For anyone who wants to check my maths -

    12 [11x Type-A, 1x Type C] on the rear i/o
    4 from the 2x USB 3.0 headers
    4 from the 2x USB 2.0 headers
    1 from the USB 3.1 header [at least i think you only get 1x Type-C port from it]

    Was it just me that took the ports comment as sarcasm then?

    This isn't actually a 16 phase VRM, it's an 8 phase with double the components per phase. There's not even any doublers.
