Can you guys do more of the lower end b450 boards? It seems like I heard that your AMD guy for motherboards was swamped so I understand there is only so much time in the day but it seems like most of the forum posts want the b350-450 and they plan on overclocking, well most of the vrms are pretty anemic for an 8 core overclocked 24/7 and it would be nice to have reviews to back that up.

This is... weird. No X470 at all, and no recommendation of the X370 CH6 or Taichi, which are pretty universally regarded by users as the best-performing boards?

What about AMD? You do know that the world does not revolve around Intel junk anymore. AMD is by far the better stuff and we all know it.

I'm confused ... the article is about "motherboards with Intel's mainstream LGA-1151 socket. These include boards designed for Intel’s 8th Generation Core Coffee Lake family" but then later says "current Intel 8th Gen Core CPUs require an LGA 1151v2 sockets". All the boards are listed as having LGA-1151 socket, not the LGA 1151v2 socket. Does that mean none of these boards support 8th gen Intel cpus? Or does the list not bother putting "v2" if it's a version 2 socket? How can we tell which boards support 8th gen Intel cpus??

From looking around a bit, what the article calls "1151v2 socket" is frequently referred to elsewhere as "1151 (300 Series)"

You need to clarify that LGA 1151 200 series chipsets won't support Coffee Lake CPUs (for no particularly good reason).
