Higher power usage (wattage) especially at idle. Shorter life for the motherboard itself (those chipset fans don't last the same way that passive coolers do.. for example 6 years from now.. and even if you don't want to use it that long, it still affects value on the used market). Outside of PCIE 4.0.. I really can't see any advantage, just a bunch of disadvantages. The only thing I could say as a plus is more motherboard support and BIOS updates. But people act like a BIOS update every month is a good thing. It's like being a beta tester.. ie.. troubleshooting. For what? Another 0.05 percent on your overlock.

The Intel system I am typing this on has been stable for 5 years plus and I've changed the BIOS once during those 5 years. The BIOS update was a pain in the butt. If it's already stable and if you're happy with power usage and performance.. why change anything. Doing less changes is better. Just use the damn PC.. and be happy. Watch YT videos.. play games.. watch Blu-rays.. whatever. X370 or X470 won't be getting frequent changes over the next few years.. and for some that's an annoyance.. for others (like me) it's a good thing. But only assuming it's stable in the first place. By the way.. I haven't had a single blue screen so far in 2020. And for the last 6 months of 2019. On an OC system that is 5 years old. Meanwhile others have frequent BSOD on new systems. But each to their own.

I will conclude by saying.. don't push your manual OC of Ryzen 3000 series voltage too far.. AMD push their voltage closer to the edge and if you raise voltage.. you're reducing the longevity of your chip. It will degrade heavily. And for sure.. won't be stable 3-5 years from now. Play the long game not the short game. And be careful buying used Ryzen chips used.. because most likely they are used and abused. I don't want to sound like an AMD hater.. I have a 3700X.. but I'm just saying be careful because AMD push things close the edge at stock/factory settings. I'm not a fan of X570 and think the people that bought them are suckers but if the X670 is more optimized it could become the best motherboards to have going forward. Then again.. AM5 is just around the corner so who knows. My CHVI is new and I expect it to last me 5 years plus.

Sound: ASUS Xonar STX II 7.1 PCIe x1 - at Slot No.1 or 3 or 5 - PCIEX1_1 or 3 or 5

SSD: Samsung 960 EVO 500GB NVMe - at M.2 Slot

NIC: Intel i350 1Gbps Base-T Dual Port PCIe x4

-----------------------------------

The problem if I install Intel i350 at Slot No.6 - PCIEX4_3
then my sound card won't be detected or if I install it at Slot No.4 - PCIEX8_2
then all devices will be able to be detected buy my GPU will be operating at
x8 bandwidth.

Is this kind of behavior normal?

-----------------------------------
Yes, it is normal.

- PCIeX4_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIeX1_1, PCIeX1_2 and PCIeX1_3
- 2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8)

It's the latest bios, yes.

Last? Hopefully not since I'm sure many of us planned to use this board for the next Ryzen gen as well.

Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle!

This works great so far!

No crashing in PUBG!

And I get great speed and latency!

There a link to pic with his full timings using Dram Calculator in the comments.
