I wouldn't buy this board unless it has 2 PS2 ports.
Owait..I already own it and it's a giant pain in the ass.
It's solid enough and the BIOS is OK.
I'd liken it to the "Pro" series of Asus yesteryear.
The hardware is there, not sure if the BIOS really trains RAM or not.
I tried on auto and the CAS and other timings went up to 22 @ 3000Mhz
Thank God for Sunset sending me those elongated CMOS jumpers for my old eyes.
Good thing I can reset CMOS with a jumper by feel! LOL!
Soon: FS: Lightly used Asus x570 TUF-plus mobo
I keep one of those jumpers right handy..lol!
Get mobo, put in 3600x..NO USB whatsoever!
Only OS supported is Windows 10.
FAIL! I'm not having it. This is simply a fail plan by AMD. Games actually run better on 7 which AMD chooses not to support. Maybe because of XBOX contract.
Well, they didn't count on Server 2008 users or XP users (industry) or Vista or Linux, or anyone else that isn't a mindless sheep into the equation.
Time to look for used hardware! I will sell all this new AMD hardware and buy 1 overpriced NVIDIA GPU just as a Bah Fongula to the 2020 AMD trojan driver crap.
PS: I'm on 7 and had to hack the drivers to get USB. What kind of crap is that?
In case anyone says it's not what I'm claiming?
Looks like I'm in between drivers. Actually I'm in between OSes because when I 1st installed the GPU drivers, RAM OCing did something, now it doesn't.
25 mhz increase in RAM got me 4 more FPS. It didn't clock much higher, but it did something.
Now, I can jack it to the max and it does nothing! Pure garbage.
Next for me is a wipe and total new Windows install and see if RAM OCing makes a return.
Probably not on this board/3600x because it's way too much of a pain.
Build it on something else and then maybe ease the install over to the newer stuff..or not.
