New AGESA 1.0.0.3ABBA BIOS-update is out.

Gotta say, the board has been performing pretty dang well for the past month, only been using the onboard wireless wifi (Intel AC9260 + AC-router) and haven't had any hiccups with the connection. The only gripe has been the chipset-fan placement: almost every single GPU in existence is going to block the fan if you use the first pcie-slot. And most of the GPU coolers will push the warm air the GPU generates towards the chipset.

Even with my modded Asus GTX 1070 Dual (shroud+fans replaced with 3x AC-F8 Silent fans tied neatly to the heatsink with zipties) the chipset temperatures were around 78C while the GPU was around 76C. That is why I went and bought an Accelero Mono Plus to replace the extremely bad stock cooler of the GPU: maximum temperatures for the GPU is now 60C and the chipset temperatures also dropped down to 70C. Two birds with one stone, as the Mono Plus heatsink doesn't block the chipset-fan like the usual GPU-coolers do.

My RX 5700XT "blocks" the chipset fan on my Tuf Gaming X570 Plus, but even after a long gaming session my chipset temperature sits at 60C. This is with a small case with only a single 120mm exhaust fan.

Do you have any m.2 SSD on the lower slot? AFAIK using an SSD there raises the temperatures as the upper m.2 slot is handled directly by the CPU and the lower slot is handled by the chipset.
I'm using a PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD (Corsair MP510) on my lower m.2 slot.

I'm only using my SSD in the top (CPU slot). I was going to put it in the lower slot (because of the heatsink), but I figured it'd be better to have it directly connected to the CPU.

Speaking of that, it's really annoying ASUS doesn't allow you to swap the SSD heatsink to the top slot...

Bought thing MB to use with 3700X. Can't wait to get it tomorrow and play with AMD CPU after years of Intel. I got 32GB CL14 DDR4-3200 RAM.

finally had a few hours to swap in my x570
seems like a nice board, windows booted right up, just have to reactivate but cant due to running insider builds 'shrugs'



anyway, noticed 2 things


first, running 4x8gb sticks of corsair vengeance lpx ram, ddr4 3600
wont run at 3600 mhz, got it running at 3300 +/-
set it at 3600 manually or set docp and it fails


second, it doesn't seem to want to save the settings when i set the cpu multiplier to 42 to have the cpu run at 4.2 ghz, it reverts back to x40 to give 4 ghz, which isnt bad at all

cpu is a 2700x 50th anni

Hi there....

Is there any overclocking guide for this mobo???

Thanks in advance!

A guide would indeed be an asset.

I agree.

I have odd issue with this board actually. For some reason, it has issues whenever i try to set negative manual offset/manual overclock with lower voltage. Either it won't post or the system just becomes unstable when doing cinebench. This is with an 3700X. I also have an hero VIII with 3900X and i don't encounter any of such issue.

I still like the mobo in general, it is a good deal if you want wifi and bluetooth with the added VRM bonus of being able to upgrade to a 3900x or similar. But from a €240 Asus motherboard I expect to be able to alter mobofan curves, bout time they gave us a biosupgrade. €240,-- is alot of money for a crappy implementation of a cooling solution, they would have done a better job designing a heatsink with a 60mm fanspot and supplying us a crappy 60 mm fan which is about the same size as the implemented mobofan anyway. This way we could have installed an A-grade silent 60mm fan of our own choosing if we had complaints about noise or whatever. This coolingsolution aka mobofandesign is crappy engineering and marketing imho. We can alter every freaking fan in the bios except the asusfan that came with the mobo which some users can hear, like w-t-a-f... When you bought a silent computerbuild, this asus mobofan can feel like betrayal.
