Nothing comes up for me and the cheapest I can find is well over £300
Nice looking board...
Tell a lie it's working now. In which case heat added!
Not has cheap as the Scan misprice but still cheaper than any other retailer right now

How much was that? Sounds like I missed out.

It's definitely one of the best X570 boards around this price.

I missed it too but it was £250ish I believe based on the people discussing it on the OCUK forum.
Thats a nice looking board, these onboard fans bring back memories of my DFI Lanparty (rip)

Damn, wish I'd have seen it.
Be aware it’s got overheating issue in some cases
I'm running a x470 crosshair with a 2700x at the moment, is there any benefit switching to this board but not getting a new ryzen yet?
Where is the M.2 slot

Not really, if you are sticking with your current cpu and storage drives I wouldn't bother.

It's supports 3, they are all under the huge black heat sink.

Yeah I'll keep the 2700x for a few more months atleast, I have a Crucial p1 m.2 nvme 1TB, a Samsung 128gb m.2 nvme and a sandisk 480gb SSD ?

Yea that's a good setup. It's only worth upgrading it if you want a gen 4 m.2

Okay cheers, it looks like they are just faster so I wouldn't see much benefit. Nice if you are starting a build now though

Anndd I was right to buy my x470 taichi. Works well with 3900x
Definitely the best x570 board at the £300 price point.

The benefit is 1. pcie gen 4 (you decide if you need it, if you don't know why you need it, you probably don't need it) 2. you get to move away from Asus c*ap
moneychop18/07/2019 10:53

There are multiple, the main one is above the top pcie slot.

The only x470 board worth considering right now is the x470 taichi Ultimate due to it having 10gbps LAN.
I was going to go for the Aorus X570 AORUS ULTRA for the same price as it looks like a good board.
What you think.
Thanks

Have you watched Buildzoids X570 videos on YouTube. If not and you want an in depth look and explanation of the boards then give them a look.

'The GPU blows hot air onto the chipset unless it's a blower design causing it to overheat'

How did nobody catch this, especially with the chipset needing active cooling with X570? That's a pretty massive design flaw for a £300+ motherboard, jeez.

Thank God I went for a blower then just turned up.

I just can't stand the idea of having a mini-fan on my motherboard to keep it cool, what happens if the fan decided to die out of warranty? I doubt the manufacturer would be bothered to even sell you one to replace it.

That's what is worrying me. I had an Abit board a few years ago with a chipset fan that died and it was a PITA to change. These new fans appear to be buried in the heat sink/shroud so would be even harder. I'm skeptical of paying almost £300 for a board that hangs on the fate of a 50p fan.
Anyone that has opened a laptop knows just how much dust collects on small high speed fans. After 2 years they are clogged, the cpu starts overheating, the fan spins faster and faster and it sounds like a jet engine.
Apparently when the chipset hits a certain temperature the entire system shuts down without warning - just what you need on a £1000+ work PC.

After two years without cleaning, every fan in your system is going to be covered in dust. Which is why you spend the five minutes it takes to clean them every now and then. Comparing it to a laptop is rather moot, as it's not in a laptop and much easier to access as a result. I spent £40 on a electric air duster as I got sick of buying compressed air, and a blast with that every now and then keeps my system dust-free.
Thanks!! Been keeping watch on these motherboards. Heat added!
It's 299 now hoping it hits around £250.
