Amazing motherboard
It looks great. The BIOS is very tweakable and easy to navigate. Lots of clearly-marked onboard power for fans and water pump(s).
By Arturo Cabrera
Hardware sensors were broken for 2 months... Its finally fixed.
Update 06/22/2018: asus has released a fix to the sensorio polling issues. They developed a wmi interface and released a bios with the fix. Aida64 and hwinfo both have beta releases that use the new interface.Hard shutdowns due to conflict with asus software and nzxt cam or corsair software. These are bad shutdowns even while machine is idle, requiring you to pull power. You cannot run any 3rd party rgb/fan control software with this board. Known issue on asus forums, no fix imminent. I only have corsair accessories, but i simply cannot recommend this product if you have any corsair link, or nzxt software gear.Updating my review to 2 stars.
By Connor Ellis
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 ).

Looks like i need to return this board a third time
I'm on my second board in a week - updating the bios which i need to do to get the full functionality, removes all my network adapters (in windows and in the bios) so no internet. Poof. Gone.I've had it happen on two new boards. Reverting the bios will not fix it. ... Looks like i need to return this board a third time.

Always like asus products and this one is not different.

Excellent motherboard
Crazy expensive compared to entry level motherboards, but worth every penny for the extra features. Still no idea what i'm going to do with my second nvme slot.Vendor sent it in a decent box with all of it's parts, and did it quickly.
By Agathe Lambert
Amd ryzen2 2700x fits nice.. Supports twin 1080and m
Used it for my new gaming setup, amd ryzen2 2700x fits nice .. Supports twin 1080and m.2. And rgb lights on board.

Great board!! Love it with my ryzen 2700x
This board is awesome. There is so many things on here.... I doubt i will even use them all. The one thing that is was lacking was usb 2.0 headers, but this was easily fixable with an nzxt adapter.If you really want an in-depth review gamers nexus does a fantastic job of going over the specs of the board.For me the big selling point was the how future proof this board is. As well their bios is fantastic and easy to navigate even for a noob overclocker like me. Finally... Can't go wrong with a little rgb. :) aura sync is as well really easy to use as well.Overall: do you really need a board this expensive for your build?.... Honest respond! Is it overkill? Yes! But, if you have some money to spend and building a rig for long term use. Then this one will have you covered. It is really well thought out (for the most part) and i would truly give it 4.5/5 stars if possible (because of the lack of usb 2.0 headers)...But because i was able to fix that myself with an adapter i rounded up.If you are going for a more budget conscious build there are definitely other boards out there that will give you everything you need without spending an arm and a leg. Thankfully when i bought this it was $70 off which cushioned the blow.Included pic of my rig :)
