X370 vs B350 mobo?

Is there any internal structural difference between an x370 and b350 mobo, other than number of ports available? Like is the OC potential any different? I'

More about x370 b350 mobo
  1. The abilitiy to SLI. Most if not all X370 boards have the SLI chip, the b350 however as far as today doesnt support SLI.
    Some b350 boards actually support crossfire, for example MSI B350 Tomahawk and Gigabyte AB350 Gaming 3.

    and the superior VRM and power choke for superior voltage stability and thus better OC'ing and thermal profile.

    i've been posting the following all over: watch the vid and read the article for further gear enlightenment! ;)

    i was wondering myself and i found this answer: in short, ASRock Taichi is the superior mobo now.

    you can find out why here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylvdSnEbL50
    and
    here: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/everything-you-need-to-k...

    pay close attention to this article as understanding the VRM and voltage phases is key in deciding which mobo is better, in addition to how many non-shared lanes are available to all the mobo key components (CPU, DRAM, PCIe slots, M2, U2)--the more lanes available to your gfx cards, dram, SSD M2 drives, the less bottleneck and the faster your whole computing experience; in other words, shared lanes == less performance. now i understand why some go with a server board for the higher non-shared count thus improving I/O throughput.

    go ASRock! ;)
