    Unfortunately working as intended.

    From the Asus website:

    It all comes down to the pci-e lane limitations of mainstream cpus.

    If you're not using the SATA ports and only using that second M.2 slot with a PCIe SSD for the OS as I was, then it should be intelligent enough to work it out tbh. None of the other boards I've tested did this and Asus had issues with this with Z170 and Z270 iirc.

    I think the best feature on this board and one I would love to see on more is the dedicated pump header. With 36w it could power both my ddc's and there's a raft of pwm fans headers. Their fan xpert software us pretty decent so would negate the need for a separate fan controller.
