I really liked the Z270 Taichi when it came out, but decided to wait for Coffee Lake/Z370. Looks like the Z370 Taichi drops the chipset-connected PCIE x16 (x4 speed) slot down to x1, loses an internal 10-pin Thunderbolt 3 header, and loses 2 SATA ports. Kinda sucks b/c I keep computers awhile and like having the extra connectors and expansion capabilities. Perhaps Steve can reach out to ASRock and ask them the reasons for these changes on the Taichi from Z270 to Z370.

I do like the change of the chipset heatsink from the square shape to the gear shape. Makes it consistent w/ the X299 and X399 Taichi models.

Looks like they dropped the Extreme7 and OC Formula boards (I thought both were awesome and nice looks as well) when they transitioned from Z170 to Z270. Got replaced by the Super Carrier and Taichi models.

P.S. I accidently downvoted your post...sorry about that! Can't seem to change it which sucks.

They make a X299 board called the OC Formula. So I do not believe you when you say they stopped making them. They just haven't finalized them yet I hope.

I was referring to their non-hedt lines. They didn't release an Extreme7 or an OC Formula for Z270, now it looks like they don't have one (yet, anyway) for Z370.
