I am thinking of buying x370 Gaming 5 and I have some questions:

1. Is this Gaming brand from Gigabyte good and durable (If I buy this board I won`t change anything until AM5 (6))? Reading reviews on x370 G5 on Newegg it has almost 50% negative reviews. Most of them states that board after some time simply dies. Also I read Intel reviews for Gaming 5 line and it is the same situation, negative reviews, board after some time simply die.

2. Does it has good fan control in BIOS? I don`t want to install any gigabyte app on windows.

3. Some member in this thread mentioned that this board kill his SSD? Is that possible?

4. M.2 place is good, no worries about heat issues?

5. Stupid question: This board has dual audio, so when I plug my headphones it will automatically switch to them, speaker will be mute? No need to manual switching between audio?

Regarding buzzing problem, I asked around and I was told that a lot of people complain about it so maybe the fault is somewhere with the amps and the fact that the audio-system is supposed to automatically switch to the proper amp for your headphones.

I apologize that this response doesn't directly address nor answer your questions, but it's exactly those negative reviews on the Gaming 5 mobo that made me go with the Gaming K7 mobo, which is what this thread is specifically about, by the way. wink.gif

With that being said, this Gaming K7 mobo is very durable and pleasant-looking, too! More so than many of the AM4 mobos I've seen released for the platform.

I have utilized the Quiet fan control in the BIOS with no problems, although I have disabled my Corsair SmartLink and hooked it up normally.

My Samsung EVO 960 250GB M.2 NVMe SSD is running very cool and I haven't had any problems with it... well, just with installing Windows 7 Pro, but that's another story for another time! wink.gif

I just tested the audio for you and yes, it works as expected, switching automatically when you connect headphones. And there's no buzzing for me... very quiet when no music or audio is playing. I don't remember my Sabertooth X58 switching effortlessly like this. Also, the audio is noticably better on this Gigabyte mobo.

Exactly, yes, those negative reviews raise a big question that maybe something is not right with Gaming 5 . I know that newegg have many noob user reviews but when I look other board reviews situation is much better

I have the G5 before moving into the K7.

If you are not really the benchmarking -- sort, the G6 is essentially a K7 without the Base Clock Generator. Equally as good. And without the AOROUS LED.

Besides this, the Newegg reviews are too small a statistical sample to draw any conclusions, Second, the percentages of each Star review is almost the same for all the Gigabyte boards. Third, the ASRock Taichi has more reviews and is a damn good board if you can get past the aesthetics, but you are here in the K7 thread.

GA X370 Gaming 5 has some design problem.

Mine died after a couple hours with the memory at 3200 MHz.

I had a friend with the exact same problem.

Everything is fine, you turn off your computer and then, it wont boot no mather what. The board is dead. It doenst even show any power signs (all the lights off, etc).

Just like reviews stated, after some time simply dies. If we just look asus x370 prime who has many negative reviews on newegg, almost in all of that reviewrs is stated that the board bricked during bios update, which can be fixed, not a big problem. Gaming 5 on intel and amd has very close user reviews description, simply dies.

Well, my K7 arrived like that. You just have to remember to try things before saying "it's dead" wink.gif
