-no on-board LED for trouble codes.
-4 pin power delivery instead of 6 pin
-sounds silly, but the RGB on this for a $200 board is lackluster at best. Why it's even on here I have no idea, it's so dainty.
-biggest thing I thought it had the Realtek ALC 1220 chip, it doesn't. I has the ALC 1200. For a $200 board, that's unacceptable.
-1x 16x PCIe 4.0 lane, if I ever do go a 2nd card, the 2nd PCIe is only 4x and handled soley by the chipset.

I'm starting to see how expensive these 570 boards are. Kinda sucks. I paid less for my C6H 2 years ago. They just lack alot of basic features for this price point, and add alot of "fluff".

I do like that Gigabyte already did 2 bios updates however. Way better than ASUS.
It's why I went with the Elite. Not a lot of extra fluff that I don't need and excellent VRM for the price point. Don't use RGB lighting. Don't use onboard audio. Don't do SLI. The trouble code readout would have been nice though.

What's this 4-pin power delivery you speak of? It's got one 8-pin power for CPU. Anything more is just overkill unless you're doing insane overclocking. One 8-pin connector can deliver 384 watts of power.
