      Pretty darn cool that your patch is waiting to be merged. Nice catch, Michael.

          Why? Because it has RGB LED's? I don't even know what a "gaming" mobo/product is anymore because the marketers have overused it and plastered it over everything that isn't a low-end product (and probably some low-end products too).

          And yes, it does support ECC.

            Does 4.18.6 fix the bug that prevents booting on Core 2 Duo as well?

              Is anyone else having issues with shutting down or rebooting their system when using kernel 4.18.x on Ubuntu/Kubuntu 18.04? I suspect that it may have something to do with my full-disk encryption, but I haven't been able to properly track down the issue yet.

                I am curious, Isn't ECC slower for gaming?

                  Because:

                  - It focuses too much into "creation". It feels like they read the phrase "for creators" from AMD's website and thought "creation" would become the next big thing.
                  - It uses a font that would better fit on a gaming motherboard. Even on the "PCIe mode support only" warning, which is kinda out of place.
                  - The motherboard's design looks unusual if it was expected to be a "workstation" motherboard.

                  Also, note that workstation motherboards are usually not low-end, yet lack RGB LEDs.

                  Thank you on the ECC clarification, by the way. I thought it didn't support ECC because there was no mention of it in the product's page.

                    I know. I didn't express that thought very well.

                    Other than the purty colors, can you elaborate? To me, the big workstation feature it's missing is 10G, especially given the price.

                    Yeah, MSI does a good job of hiding it. But you can see it here if you click on the 'Details' tab: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MEG-.../Specification
