    Thank you so much for doing this. I have been struggling to make up my mind over which X299 motherboard to go with for weeks, and your chart has allowed me to take a huge leap forward with the decision making process. Now I just need to find an ASRock Fatal1ty X299 Pro Gaming board in New Zealand 🙂
