I feel pretty fortunate that my issues with this board (and processor/RAM setup) have been pretty minimal. That said, my next build will be back on an Intel platform, too. I don't miss the Spectre, Meltdown, etc. exploits, but I do miss how completely trouble-free my experiences were. I also like how basically everything on my board was Intel hardware. Every AMD setup I've ever had (going back to the 90's) has had a mishmash of OEM parts (Network, wireless, Bluetooth, sound, etc.) that required a pile of drivers from all over the place. Intel's driver assistant was all I needed, other than Nvidia drivers, for years.
