Memory is pretty trivial on X570. I wouldn't use so much of the old logic to apply to this platform. Yes 2 sticks is easier than 4, however 4 sticks @ 3600 is not hard at all. Here's my system with 4 sticks @ 3600. Just enabled XMP... It wasn't even a full 4 stick kit, I combine 2 seperate kits which is also (usually) more difficult.
Hey Matt, are all the board’s dimms daisy chained? Or T-topology? Buildzoid has mentioned assuming they were daisy chained.
I want to make sure I get the correct ram kit for this platform.
I've been looking at upgrading my 4790k to either a 3700x or a 3900x, and gigabyte's boards look incredibly solid for this platform. It's always refreshing and just downright awesome seeing active hardware reps like
working hard to make their products better with the community's help.
If anyone has a power meter of some kind, what power consumption numbers are you seeing? I'm mostly interested in idle measurements with nothing going on.
The reason I ask is because reviews like this one from eteknix have idle system power consumption levels in the 100+ watt range, while X470 and Intel platforms are seeing a more reasonable 45-75W with an equivalent configuration.
Electricity is expensive here in the UK. If X570 takes twice the electricity to run while sitting idle over X470, that affects my purchasing decisions quite a bit. If the power consumption without anything going on including monitoring software etc is closer to the 60-70W mark, I'd see that as a non-issue. 100W+ on the other hand is too high.
Since someone posted a ""review"" video of the Aorus Xtreme..
(and no offense to the poster, comment would have been the same no matter the source)
Please be careful with what you post please, especially if it's a ""review""; meaning that if you have watched something before you link it here, make the extra effort and point out the inconsistencies, errors, etc; don't just paste vids.
99% of the sites out there spread the wrong information around, we don't need to do that as well.
When someone loads Prime to test an X570 mobo's chipset's temps ... need i say more? No
It's an excellent board, that has thus far not being graced with an excellent review; a very common phenomenon. Unofrtunately.
Has anyone with these new GB boards tried to run with a PCIE extender? I ask because I have a TT Core P3 that I'd like to mount this sexy new board on, with vertical GPU mount, but I'm wondering if PCIE4 will have signalling issues over the extender? Or do we need to wait for PCIE4 extenders now?
