I mean, I guess I know the answer but RX 480 does work better on Win 10 in DX12 smile.gif

As someone who stuck with Win 7 until this Ryzen build, I've had a better experience with Windows 10 than I thought I would. Granted, this is after around 4 hours of disabling all the garbage and tweaking the settings in control panel. tongue.gif

I still feel like it doesn't really... do anything Win 7 didn't do just fine, but it's not been the nightmare I feared it would be.

Only if you have DX12 games.

Curious if anyone is using the Gigabyte software? How is it? and will I want to install any of it?

Pretty sure it is Hynix.

However, this guy got it working:


So, who knows. :rolleyes:

Yeah, it may have something to do with Voltages we cannot control at the moment. If you look back at the mini guide I posted, I just picked a Voltage and work my clocks on to it. Even Stock Voltage can hold up a little bit more overclock for me.

mini-guide updated for F9 boot loop.
Give it a try guys,

It does have the improved kernel and security streamlining from win8, so there's no delays in copying files or doing anything that requires a security prompt.. and you get that sweet new file transfer dialog with pause function and improved task manager that shows network and disk usage per process and can disable startup programs without going into a modified boot state.

Also if you haven't yet, try right clicking on the start button. That's a menu from win8 as well =)

The one thing I like in win10 that isn't from win8 is that they uncoupled the scroll wheel from the active window.. the scrolling will effect whatever the mouse cursor is hovering over even if it's not the active window.

Hey guys, got a little question for you. I hope this is the right topic to ask. I`m really interested to buy this board (chose this over the Gaming 5 version), but as this is a new platform, I`m really interested how well the BIOS behaves and how well does the board overclocks the CPU and RAM. I wish to buy it along a R7 1700 CPU and some Corsair LPX 3000Mhz RAM sticks. Also, would this board be more stable than the ASRock x370 Taichi? Thanks smile.gif

At an overclock attainable within ambient cooling, this board is pretty capable. You won't get it peak out before the chip.

BIOS has been pretty okay so far and gigabyte support is already existent for these boards.

Anoyher key pount for these boards are the level of OC you can achieve on the RAM. Staying within 100 BCLK, you will not have any issues with 3200 RAM. Given the right kit of course. Check my posts.
