Good little motherboard

Strengths of the product

Compact and heavy (good) motherboard for its size. It has the aorus shield / backplate in the back for increase rigidity. 1x TDA21472 (70A) MOSFET for each of its power phases.More than capable of handling the top of the line Ryzen 9 3950X. Integrated I/O shield is a nice touch. Q-Flash Bios capability allows upgrades without the need for a CPU. Very good component layout. Every port is still accessible when installed inside my case. 4 SATA ports are nicely positioned so that the data wires do not cross over the memory slots. Both ECC and regular unbuffered RAM are supported. 2 M.2 slots Gigabyte motherboards support BIFURCATION of the PCIE slot. So even if this motherboard has a single PCIex16 slot, you can actually SPLIT that slot into an 8+8 (or even an 8+4+4) with an appropriate riser cable and card. Most modern and recent CPUs support this, but the single most important factor is BIOS/UEFI support.

Weaknesses of the product

I have this is a raijintek mini ITX case. It fits but make sure you measure your case properly if using mini-ITX. Compared to other mini-ITX motherboards, the CPU socket is not centered. This could result in an air cooler being too big to fit inside the confines of the case. It has 3 fan headers but 1 is already being used by the M.2 thermal guard fan. If you are using an AIO closed loop or an air cooler with 2 fans, you will need at least 1 fan splitter, leaving the last fan header for an exhaust fan. A lot more expensive than other AM4 mini-ITX solutions but well worth for the features and any future possible upgrades.

Additional Comments

I have this motherboard paired with an R9-3950X and an older Titan Xp video card. This build serves me more as a rendering machine with some light gaming from the 12GB video card. The CPU is cooled by a Noctua NHD15 and seldom sees temperatures of 50C while inside a relative tight mini-ITX case.

Solid little board - but hot chipset, some teething issues

Strengths of the product

- In my case ITX size is a plus, however small size means also hotter components. Make sure it's in the well ventilated case. - Good build quality and solid VRM - it should be able to handle 16core upcoming Ryzen chip. It also feels heavy for its size - Very good BIOS and an option to upgrade it without CPU or RAM (for future AM4 CPUs) - I'm running Ryzen 5 3600 with 3rd party cooler rated at 200W and the installation was seamless. CPU is cool and rarely reaches 60° C at real life load. - Two m.2 ports for SSDs. Front one is under the X570 chip heatsink and at the other on the back

Weaknesses of the product

The X570 chip is hot and averages around 70° C when PCI lines are in heavy use - gaming, M.2 ssd transfers, etc. This is not the board issue rather AMD overall X570 design I've put the M2 ssd on the back of the motherboard for this reason and added extra fan to blow over this area which dropped temps.

Additional Comments

Very good compact solution for new line of Ryzen 3000 chips. The only downside is hot running X570 chipset. AMD improve your designs please. As I've jumped from Intel's Z97 with Haswell to this platform I've experienced some issues with moving virtual machines. The use of Ubuntu 18 VM in Virtual box managed to crash my system - I believe it is more Win10/CPU combination issue than motherboard itself (teething issues) I really hope it's gonna get ironed out by MS and Oracle in next OS/software upgrades.
