Yes, that is one of the things that drew me to the board.
The m.2 drives get pretty hot and yet looking at the Z270 boards, a lot of them place them right under the video card(s) and/or only have a token slot for a second drive stuck on somewhere at random. For a technology that is becoming so popular now, this is extremely disappointing to me. I really want some form of cooling or heatsink on my m.2s.
I probably don't need 64 gb of ram, so i was tempted to go with slightly faster 32gb.
I don't believe the board is out yet, so i'll be waiting for reviews and/or better boards which might change my mind, but i'm liking what i am seeing at the moment.
