    When researching the specs on the Asus board, I noticed they have reduced the number of chassis fan headers to two.
    I guess they are assuming everyone will have water cooling.
    Whereas most of the Gigabyte gaming boards have four, which is what I want.
    I'm not familiar with the Gigabyte hierarchy but assume the Aorus series is on the same tier as ROG STRIX.
    But as the Asus board in question is on the bottom of the gaming ladder, was wondering if it compared with the Gigabyte Z490X Gaming.

    Gigabyte Z490 AORUS ULTRA


    Or use a power adapter widget, most of the case fans connect to molex anyway.

    Look at the chipsets they both use. Thats what ~drives~ them
    Thats all that will make any real world difference. All the rest is marketing fluff or un-needed addons

    You can also get a Y splitter to connect two fans to one header, and if you want to speed control them you can get them without the 4th wire to one of the fans so it only uses one fan to sense speed from (or just cut that wire)

    For example
