, updated DB.@alphac
, seen that and there was another video IIRC on Asus YT livestream used that mobo.
Putting aside what we learnt about the VRM on Asus Prime X370 Pro.
Biggest thing that is making me sway with CH6 is the WC headers, I know to be able to get such data in OS I'd need Aquaero 5 LT USB
. So when I do WC I'd like "ahh could have got CH6".
The CH6 due to AM3 holes is also allowing me to use Archon SB-E X2, until I get some more £ together to go WC. TR are asking for an invoice of my Archon purchase, which I don't have to gain AM4 bracket, waiting on their response after telling them that. I know I got the Wraith Spire to use with the R7 1700, but wanna get OC'ing testing stuff rather than using at stock.
So Aquaero 5 LT USB ~£50, TR AM4 bracket is min :-
The conversion kit is free of charge, only the shipping costs will be charged to you.
This would be 5.00 € as uninsured mailing or as an insured parcel, the costs are country-dependent.
Someone on reddit was quoted 15.90 €, no idea what that 5.00 € will go up to yet for me.
Then with so many CH6 getting bricked/DOA in recent posts on web, I'm "Ohh no ...." do I wanna let myself in for this.
As Amazon UK are so good on RMA/support I'd take a chance on CH6, any other etailer no way. I know Amazon UK would send me a new mobo even whilst borked one is in transit to them. No other etailer I have read/experienced in the past to do such support.
I'm not buying Asus for what Asus do via their support centre in the UK, that's for sure.
The Asus Prime X370 Pro I have no qualms won't do as high an OC as CH6 IMO. CH6 is the ideal board for now and later, after thinking it through a lot for me.
Think I'm just gonna have to wait around some more.
