ASUS PRIME X470-PRO (Issues and Successes)

Greetings, first post on the forum. Used to play with an I5 2500k but recently upgraded to a Ryzen 7 2700x. Here are some issues I've had with it so far, I searched the forums and couldn't find anything...

My Build:
Ryzen 7 2700x
ASUS Prime X470-Pro
8GBx2 GSkill Sniper 3600MHz
Corsair 1000W gold PSU
GIGABYTE GTX 1060 3G Mini OC (Don't judge me, I'm waiting for prices or something new!)

Only Issue (Kind of a big one...): My fan headers will randomly shut off, causing my CPU fan to quit working along with all case fans. I can't seem to recreate the issue, it seems to be intermittent. I have, however, uninstalled the AI software that comes with the ASUS Prime X470 and it hasn't happened again since! So hopefully that's the current fix.

Successes: I am currently running 24/7 @ 4.15 GHz on the stock cooler and 3666MHz on the RAM. Temperature maxes out at 76ish when running 95 and consecutive CB15. Current CB15 is about 1870 and ultra stable. Max temp from gaming on a 1060 and doing regular browsing is 59.4C.

Max CB, which took my CPU to about 87C on the stock cooler was 1960ish, @ 3666MHz RAM and 4.25 GHz CPU, 95 pushed the CPU to overtemps. I may invest in a water cooler some day, but for now I like where I'm at.

Good luck with your builds/overclocks! I love the ASUS Prime X470Pro, looks a MILLION times better in person than even in the pictures. Beware there is a protective covering on all the plastics.

If you uninstalled the AIsuite and it fixed your fan issue maybe your fan profiles haven't been calibrated.

I echo the previous comment. I'd go into UEFI and let it optimize your fans all over again.

I'm looking for owners of this board to give me feedback about their experiences with it. Are you happy with your purchase, so far?

Also, sorry for back to back posts.

I did calibrate the profiles, even switched them to DC only and back. I'm hoping it's just a software issue, ASUS Tech support wants me to unplug all my fans and run ONLY the CPU fan, which will be the next step if the problem recurs after uninstalling the AI software, after that, they want me to RMA the CPU cooler, which if that happens, it's unfortunately going into the review and I'm just going to buy a water cooler.

I love the way it looks..... and it so far has overclocked my memory flawlessly. Other than the Fan header acting up, I love it. Never had a BIOS with a mouse cursor, either... that's a blast! One bit of improvement (To the RGB side...) would be like a floodlight RGB over the ram... That would be siiiick.

Can you post maybe some pics with RTC, CPUz, ...?

Thanks

AI3 is a disease!

I've had it cause nothing but problems on MANY Asus boards, and I find that it almost always eventually causes some sort of problem, or conflict. From personal experience, I implore you to manually OC your system through BIOS, instead. The suite is buggy, the temps and voltages it reports are wildly inaccurate. Use HWINFO64, for hardware reporting, if you can't use an actual meter.
