This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is a pretty good price for this board. Yes, it isn't cheap for a motherboard broadly speaking but it's a good deal for an X570 board with the specs and feature set it has. It's directly from Amazon too rather than a 3rd party selling through them.

The only catch is it's currently on pre-order and due in stock on 19th September.

Hope this helps some of you out who are planning a new build or upgrade

Good price indeed. Heat.
Any reviews of this mobo you rate? Running many m.2?
People who buying such MB for AM4 are very special

Why?


Because at best it'll give you 2% more performance over a £100 board due to the limited overclocking potential of AMD cpus.

But X570 isn't just about overclocking, it's got before VRMs for the high core count chips, PCI-E 4 and more M2 slots than cheaper boards.

The fan though, is unforgivable.

Chipset is actively cooled with a fan. Look bottom right of board.

All x570 motherboards have a active fan on the motherboard apart from some £700 versions which don't.

Its noisey on the Taichi, especially with a non-blower style GPU.

During gaming the GPU heat is being blown straight at the chipset fan, meaning itll hit 70+ degrees and the whiney fan becomes the loudest thing in my system.
Only ever bought one Asrock board. It started coming apart at the seams and things falling off almost straight away. Build quality was atrocious. Never bought one since. In the years since, no doubt they got their quality up, but Nope. Won't buy and chance it. MSI and Gigabyte have never let me down (Asus have - also only time I bought one)

I was looking at the gigabyte master motherboard but that's a high priced motherboard to. and herd there good and have silent fan. apprantly

When you know that this will be at £59.00 in 2 years on Black Friday.

Oh those £200.00 saved....
Just sold mine and I'm not joking. I just couldn't cope anymore with that whining little fan . It was the most annoying thing I've heard and was easily more audible than everything else in the system just due to the tone of it. The RGB software is buggy as hell and I had a nightmare getting my 32gb 4x 8GB 3600mhz Crucial Ballistix kit working. Strange because being a T-Topology board I expected it to work decent with 4 dims but it would only work with 2. Nothing wrong with the RAM, had it on MEM test. Tried overclocking the CPU, messing with voltages, timings etc but no luck. Tried the same kit on my B450 strix and works perfectly fine, just dial in the XMP and off it goes. Maybe it's just my board but I'm sticking to my strix because these chipset fans are just not the way to go.

Reviewers have failed to find a reason for the chipset fan. It was supposedly due to PCIe 4 but testing has shown no appreciable increase in temps when running PCIe 4 devices with the fan disabled in the reviews I've seen.

Their Taichi boards are fantastic. I have the X370 taichi in my system, no complaints here.
I bought the ASUS TUF X570 Wifi for 215 if anyone is interested in saving some cash while also getting a very capable motherboard. Running my 3700x with max temps of 72C. Ram OC'ed with no problems either. Although this Motherboard is still a good deal.

Asrock used to be a budget brand but moved into the high end. If your last asrock board was years ago that's not really representative of current boards.

Same issues with mine, doesnt like 4 dimms, fan is noisey.

Going to repaste the chipset and hope the BIOS matures.

To be fair this is more like the older boards that had North and South bridges with how AMD uses infinity fabric. Back then boards were a bigger proportion to the cost, add in you get more connectivity these days it's not that weird.

It's also not like the system integrator isn't paying the same relative costs, same with higher end professional users that pay even more for boards.

There's a difference between what Asrock used to be, cheapo unreliable boards with basic build quality issues, to the boards they make currently. Their X399 and X370/X470 Taichi are all fantastic, high-end and well built.

Now this board is not perfect but isn't terrible by any means, it needs better chipset cooling and BIOS maturity isn't there yet. If I was buying again I'd get the cheaper X570 Aorus Elite.

Not sure why it was expired, other than a £3 fluctuation that's changed day on day the price has been the same since then. At the minute it's looking like this is just the Amazon permanent price.

I dont think the price is bad, £200 for the Aorus Elite isn't much more expensive than a mid tier X470 at all, with a better quality PCB and high end VRM that is seen on HEDT boards at much higher prices.

Great thing being that you dont have to buy these boards, a £100 Tomahawk Max is great on a budget. Choice is good

Not really, only whiney at high rpm's, not that it ever gets there often anyway.

My advice would be to download the latest bios with the new fan curves and set sys-fan1 to silent mode in the bios.
Cool. Sounds about right to me. Thanks for the tips. Still on a fence about an X570 build.

i agree, they were budget for a reason, just because their price has shot up doesnt mean there any better, just more expensive
whats the old saying, you cant polish a turd

I'm with the other guy on this one. If you compare this to the basic Asrock 570x, it's matched in terms of SATA and M2, it supports the same CPUs (including the mooted 3950x), and it offers the same clocks on those CPUs, give or take 25MHz here or there. Where this board betters the Asrock is in its support for faster RAM speeds and its built-in WiFi and BT, all of which is pointless, because R3000's RAM can't be clocked higher than 3800MHz without incurring a performance penalty, and the stuff that's built in to the board can all be purchased as USB or PCIe AiBs, and ported over to your next or other system when the need takes.

Basically, your extra £100 gets you nothing that £50 worth of USB dongles doesn't get you. It does increase your board's potential points of failure, though.
