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.

Okay so I'd just like to report my experience with this board.
I purchased the ASUS TUF GAMING X570 PLUS (WIFI) back in November 2019 and ran it with the following components:
Ryzen 7 3700x
Corsair Vengeanace RGB Pro 16GB x 2 (3200Mhz)
ADATA XPG 512GB M.2 SSD
MSI GTX 1060Armor 6GB OC Edition
EVGA Supernova 750W Gold Rating Power Supply
The machine was running STOCK with no overclocking done.
A few days after completing my build the system randomly rebooted without any warning or error message.
I checked the event viewer logs and found nothing specific.
A few hours later the same thing happened again. Both times it happened at idle. No applications were open. In the coming days the random reboots become more frequent and started occuring when doing things as diverse as playing online games, doing photo editing in Lightroom, editing video in Premier Pro, typing out an email or browsing the web.
I was determined to get the cause of the issue and performed the following troubleshooting steps:
1. Updated all drivers to the latest available versions. (Reboot still occurred)
2. Updated the BIOS to the latest available version. (Reboot still occurred)
3. Checked for malware and virus infections. (Reboot still occurred)
4. Performed a clean install of Windows 10 Pro and updated drivers to the latest available versions again. (Reboot still occurred)
5. Ran Temperature monitoring software to check if the issue was caused by overheating. (Reboot still occurred)
6. Removed ASUS software one at a time to determine if any of those applications were the cause of the reboots. (Reboot still occurred)
7. Removed my RAM, Graphics Card, Power Supply, Hard Drive and inserted known fully-working components. (Reboot still occurred)
8. Connected my rig to a 2Kva Line Interactive UPS. (Reboot still occurred)
9. Moved my rig to another power socket in the house. (Reboot still occurred)
10. I set the BIOS to default settings. (Reboot still occurred)
11. Set the BIOS to optimised defaults. (Reboot still occurred)
12. I did some research online and disabled PBO in the BIOS. (Reboot still occurred)
13. Did further research and then tried every single XMP profiles from 3200Mhz to 3600Mhz. (Reboot still occurred)
14. I set the Power settings in Windows to Balanced from AMY Ryzen Balanced. (Reboot still occurred)
15. I disabled hibernation. (Reboot still occurred)
16. I increased the Windows Page File.(Reboot still occurred)
17. I disabled the Windows Page File. (Reboot still occurred)
I then encountered a reboot while I was in the BIOS and determined that it was not a Windows issue.
At this stage I has eliminated every single hardware component except the CPU and MB.
I then bought another motherboard (A cheap Gigabyte A320M with the BIOS update already done by the supplier) and installed all my components onto this board.
I ran the Gigabyte board for 4 straight days without a single reboot.
I then knew for sure that my board was the issue.
I returned it to the supplier who promptly replaced it with a brand new board.
I take the board home, remove the Gigabyte board and install all my components back.
After about 30 minutes the random reboots happened again.
I highly doubt that 2 x boards could have the exact same fault although it is technically possible.
I am now going to return the second board to the supplier for a full refund. I am looking for an alternate X570 board to purchase.
I am just letting any prospective buyers know about the issue I faced in the hopes that it might help someone that may experience this issue.

On my Crosshair VIII Hero you can search the BIOS. Try hitting F9 in the BIOS and search Bank Group Swap and see if it comes up.
I have read if you disable BGS you can increase you write score by 5Gb

|boldenc||I can't find BGS and BGS ALT options in the bios. Does they exist on this mobo?|

I can't boot with 1900 FCLK, I tried to change VDDG up to 0.99v / VDDP voltage up to 1000 / SOC up to 1.150v
It just won't boot, 1866 boots fine.
Is there something I can tweak further to boot with 1900 FCLK?

Ive just made full new build including the Asus TUF X570 Plus and im looking for some starting guides to BIOS settings for the CPU (gonna try safe settings with minimum possible voltages and then we'll see with single core or multi core overclock, since i see that's where all the juice is) and its voltages as well as the DDR timings and any other tips.
I havent messed with overcloking since the days of C2D/C2Q and LGA775 to be honest(my QX9650 at 4ghz is still up and running ever since 2010-longest ever running chip for me), with legacy bioses, and suddenly i find a whole new load of info to mess around ))))
(ive updated bios to 1405 - and have just enabled OC Tuner as a first try which has set the CPU to 3950mhz instead of the default frequency fluctuation like speedstep. The OC tuner dropped the default set voltage from 1.464 to 1.35 but judging from other temps(MB and diodes) the chipset voltages are increased when enabling the oc tuner).\Ok i guess i have a long way to go and see what effects all these new settings have, thus im looking for some guidelines
