Half cooked software & RAID

Submitted on Monday, February 03, 2020

Strengths of the product

Hardware-wise this is a rock solid board. AI tweeking software is good not great. ASUS/American Megatrends BIOS is very robust, lots of features for tuning, except the RAID feature.

Weaknesses of the product

AMD hardware RAID totally sucks. Only works if one is doing a clean install of Windows. Ended up using Windows internal RAID feature. USB board connectors are at the bottom, only managed to get one connector to reach, had to lengthen the other cable to reach. BIOS didn't properly recognize the CPU and memory.

Additional Comments

For a mature expensive board I was expecting more from the 570X RAID but, the RAID is the worst I've seen in 30 years. Besides the RAID problem most of the software seems to be half cooked and unfinished.
The BIOS AI is ok but you will need to go back in and tune it manually. The BIOS could not even get my memory right except the voltage, 3200 was listed as 2136 ??? G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 2x16 (32gig) CPU base frequency was 3.9 but boost was 4.2, AI got it to 4325, this is for a Rysen 3800X.
The Windows based AL tweeker is disabled and will not work if you make any changes to memory or CPU speed in the BIOS! so be aware of this.
The ROG CPUID software pretty much gets everything wrong. The Armoury Crate software is also pretty good for doing the updates. Oh the BIOS also failed to recognise my NVida Quadro 4000 video card on first boot but was fine thereafter. The flashback is an excellent feature.
Except for the AMD RAID this is a solid board with nice LED lighting effects, if your into that. OC is very easy but the stock CPU cooler needs to be upgraded if your going to push the limits, otherwise the whole board setup runs quite cool and is not to hard on my 650 watt PS.
This is a tweekers board and I would have given this board a 5 out of 5 if it weren't for the RAID and half cooked software/BIOS. I only did basic stress testing but, this setup is fast and solid. If you plan on using the RAID make sure you read through the RAID manual first so you know what's involved.

Sure I'll be the first

Strengths of the product

- Nice lighting that syncs well with my other hardware - A good amount of bios updates early on - 100% Stable, I've had no issues with it. - Active cooling is very quiet when running and hidden

Weaknesses of the product

- X570s are expensive - USB 3.0 on the lower end of the board is a minor issue for me I prefer it on the side.. but they have a Gen 2 3.2 connector there which I have no use for right now.

Additional Comments

I don't give out 5 stars often and I've shied away from Asus boards over the first two Ryzen generations as they had problems but, you know... I can't find much to fault with this. It's a great board with excellent features. I'd like to touch up on the software which I found surprising. As soon as the OS was installed and connected to the internet it wanted to install the Asus Armor Crate ap which updates all your drivers and will also install some of Asus control apps if you want them. The integration was incredibly smooth. Well done Asus. It's a step up from your competitors current software and useful to.
