Great Motherboard even with the Asus tax
Upgrading from an AM3+ platform, the Asus pro gaming Aura had served me well. Very glad I decided to stick with Asus they make a top notch product! No problems to report so far, memory set at 3000mhz no problem.

Great motherboard. Just a disclaimer, the radiator on the chipset is non rgb. It may seem like it is but it's a chrome lettering.

With 2700x bios update required ,, and it will be difficult

Defective sata ports
Pros: wicked fast when combined with a ryzen7 2700x. Has all the features i desired at a good price.Cons: when using m.2 ssd, the board disables sata ports 5 and 6. This is expected and documented behavior. It becomes a problem when sata ports 3/4 suddenly stop working, leaving you with only 2 sata ports. Upon initial build, i did not notice any problems. My configuration consisted of a m.2 ssd as the system drive, a sata 4tb hhd in sata 1 for storage, bluray burner in sata2, and a sata ssd for user data in sata3. After installing drivers and software and cycling through a few reboots, i noticed my user data drive was missing. I was unable to find it listed in hardware manager. Booting into the bios, i could see it listed. I changed out cables and tried again, and it no longer showed in bios or windows. Swapping cables between sata1/2 devices and the missing devises resulted in the missing devices showing up and the other devices not showing up any longer. I tried multiple different cable and port configurations. All signs pointed to bad sata ports on the motherboard. I removed the m.2 drive and tested again, as this would remove any disabled ports. Sata 1/2 and 5/6 would register devices, however nothing from 3/4 in bios. I as well noticed that the front panel lights no longer worked. Checking voltages from the pins showed none present when there should be. It seems like there is a fault on this board.Thoughts : i could swap the m.2 to the other slot and gain access to sata 5/6 ,giving me the number of sata ports i need, however this takes the gpu bus and turns it from 16x to 8x. This was not an acceptable concession to get a running system. In the end, having components seemingly stop working after a few days of ownership does not instill any confidence in the quality of this particular board. I have rmaed and am waiting for a replacement.

Not the best value for money, and as well problems updating bios
I had this motherboard for a bit, and wasn't entirely pleased with it. Let me tell you why.I was using it with a ryzen 5 2600. I had a mild overclock going and found it would not update to the latest bios, and it kept freezing whenever it tried to. I then reset all the bios settings to stock clocks and then it seemed to be okay with the bios update, but then the bios actually didn't reflect the new changes that asus apparently implemented, including setting the core voltage of the motherboard to a value, instead of an offset. So after troubleshooting it for an hour or more, i gave up.Other than that, it seemed to work fine, but to be honest, it's not a good bang for your buck.If you read a lot of the reviews for this board, the vrms aren't that great, it doesn't come with wifi or bluetooth, and the lighting effects are minimal, with just the rog logo to the top left. Combine that with a bios that - at least to me - was glitchy, and wasn't updated to being able to set voltage as opposed to an offset for overclocking.. And it just seems like it's way overpriced for what it is.The only thing i can think of that would make you want to buy this board is for asus aura sync, which in some cases does do a better job that other companies' lighting programs. Depends on what you have going lighting-wise.I ended up going for the msi b450 gaming pro carbon ac, which, apart from having a solid bios for overclocking (manual setting of voltage, fan speeds and remembering them), as well comes with wifi/bluetooth, and good vrms (again look up reviews) that perform as well or better than the x470 boards above it. They are both at the same price point, and clearly the msi is more worth the money.
