Biostar X570GT8

Simple really, does anyone know anything about this board?

I've a Crosshair vi Hero, but I bought a biostar X370GT7 for my son and it's been pretty good with the 1700 I put in it for him.
Pretty much everything was in the bios if a bit hard to find, runs fine at 3.9Ghz/3000 mem (hynix ) which was all it would do in the C6H anyway.

if the X570GT8 is anything like, at the price its unbeatable, anyone know any gotcha's? I've a 3900x on the way :-)

EDIT: Not any more, got a 3600 on the way, going to wait for the 3950x

here are some pics

VRM s are ir3555m and ir 35201 controller

in the 2nd to last pic the pint of the screwdriver is over the x570 chip

You might be wanting to read this thread. https://www.overclock.net/forum/11-a...-vrm-wise.html


Who even has an X570 GT8 for sale? I've been happy with my GT7 but don't think it can run a 3000 cpu so need a new board too.

Yes I am running that bios now but never saw anything about it being able to run the 3000 series cpu. Maybe I will just buy a 3800X and see what happens.

Oh. I didn't know that. You just saved me $200-300 bucks.


That 3900X is supposedly a 105 watt item. I remember seeing this 1700 hit 165 watts and the VRMs have never gone past 68C.

The VRM is very nearly if not as good as on my C6H, and it looks like it has more or less the same VRM as the x570GT8.

and the fan/temperature control is definitely better!

Have they improved the fan control for the X570GT8? My X470GT8 left me wanting as it was kinda limited in it's options.
Only PWM control and you couldn't mix and match which sensor each fan header was reading temperature from. They were stuck to their original source.

Gigabyte had much better options and easier to use.

don't know , I was comparing it with my C6H, where you can set 3 points only in the bios to get a "curve". which the bios then seems to ignore and says all I'm going to do is cycle between slow and fast lol

I believe the VRMs are the same as the CH6 but not as many and the heat sink is just a solid block of aluminum.



The case fan controller sounds like it is the same on the x370 and x470. Yes PWM only and it is locked to the system temps instead of the CPU temps. Whether this is good or not depends on one's priorities. To me this is very good as the case fans only rev up when gaming and the GPU needs lots of cool air. If one is interested in the highest possible overclocks, then this is a bad thing.



What I like is how each fan can be tuned from idle to top rpm so that they run at the same speed at all times. Fans running at different speeds and producing bad atonal harmonics is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me and this is the first board I've had that lets me tune that out.



But still, when I go to the Biostar site and look for retailers it says to go to Newegg, but Newegg does not have the X570 for sale. So who knows what features it may have?
