Misleading advertising, okay board for the price
Got this board on monday, started building it today and woe's me, the pci-e x16 port seems to be faulty. Red vga light stays on with my gigabyte gtx 1080 g1 and no post.The problem is not the graphics card because it is working fine with my gigabyte ga-b75m-d3h mobo.Was really looking forward to finishing my first ryzen build. This is disappointing.What has happened to gigabyte's reliability? This is my first dud with them :(thought all the bad reviews on this piece of kit was probably because of noob errors but nope, this is legit folks.Now let me see how helpful their aftersales service is...Edit: after i ordered this product on an outletpc deal, i had a bad feeling about it no more than an hour after ordering it (after reading about some technical anomalies with this board)i then tried to cancel the order but was told by outletpc that this is not possibe... I find this hard to believe given that only an hour or so had passed and no shipping service is that fast.Thus, one can only conclude that they were knowingly dumping technically flawed stock and hoping some of them would stick.Either way, this product leaves a lot to be desired as does the aftersales service rendered on it.Beware.Edit of edit: tested a friend's gen 1 ryzen and it booted fine. Updated the bios and then my 2600 worked with a 3200mhz overclock on ramwould be nice if gigabyte actually updated the bios of the ax370 boards before they ship this? Why have that big, bold "ryzen 2000 ready" accent on the box if you can't run the board with a ryzen 2000 cpu initially in the first place? Monumentally stupid. Why are they assuming that everyone has access to a first gen ryzen cpu?Subtracting 2 stars for wasted time, stupid marketing and useless aftersales support from gigabyte.Other than that, the board isn't too shitty. 4ghz all core overclock at reasonable vrm temps. Ram supported at rated speed and running stable @3200mhz overclock.
