The board looks fantastic and the provided software works like a charm
Update:there have been some issues with the ram overclock i believe. The pc shuts down unexpectedly and i believe that ram might indeed be the case here. I restored the settings to auto in order to check if that was the problem and now the system runs smoothly. Although, i believe that with 1.4v instead of the initial 1.35v that i had, the problem will be fixed. Unfortunately i don't have time to test it now but as soon as i do will update my review again. As well, when i tried to overclock my ram above its advertised speed the pc wouldn't post and the settings were reverted without any problems.General thoughts:i installed this board today with a ryzen 7 2700x processor and a 2x8gb corsair vengeance rgb 3466mhz kit (cmr16gx4m2c3466c16). My pc booted from the start with no issues whatsoever. First thing i did was update the bios to latest firmware using asus ez flash 3 (easy as pie). The process in general went through without any problems. The board looks fantastic and the provided software works like a charm.Ram:after updating the bios, i used the docp feature to overclock my ram kit to its advertised 3466mhz speed. I have never fiddled with ram speed before but it was very simple to do so. The bios as well comes preloaded with memory profiles for samsung b-die ram kits with speeds up to 3600mhz that you can use. The pc posted with no issues and my ram was running at 3466mhz which provided a very nice boost to benchmarks and framerates.Issues:the only issues i had were regarding third party control software. These were corsair link and speedfan. Corsair link couldn't let me customize the ram leds but otherwise it worked as intended. Speedfan couldn't recognize the motherboard pwm ports so i couldn't use it to set fan speeds.Workaround for issues:i believe though that it's not the boards fault. Most probably the software were not update for the x470 platform. Instead, i used the aura sync software to control all the rgb components of my system. It was pretty easy to figure out and does it's job pretty well. Regarding fan control, the fan xpert 4 software from the ai suite 3 worked wonders. I used it to automatically tune the fans based on their individual rpm. After that there's no need to further adjust the fans but if you want, each pwm fan port provides an rpm chart that can be adjusted from the software. The software as well make four profiles for all the fan speeds: silent, standard, turbo, full speed. These can be easily cycled through the software.Conclusion:admittedly, this is just the first day of use of the new system but i felt the need to post this review because this board is in my opinion the top x470 that you can buy right now and with fore coming bios update it can only get better (i hope :p ).
