ASUS 970 Pro Gaming AURA Owner's Club

Some of the reasons the 970 Pro Gaming/Aura is great.

  • Low price
  • 7+1 VRMs that are well cooled
  • SLI/CF PCIe x8/x8 if you want, or PCIe x16 for one VGA card
  • Last and least - Cool RGB colors!!

(Note, anyone with tips on how to organize clubs will be welcome. In the meantime, a CPU-Z with the requisite motherboard in it from you is proof enough.)

I purchased this board in Nov. to replace a M5A99x and have enjoyed overclocking and gaming on it very much. Buildzoid on Actually Hardware Overclocking has several live overclocking videos on YouTube with this board. While he dogs on the board a little with his AMD FX-9570(not officially supported) I learned a lot about the settings and what I should expect when overclocking on this board.

Thanks for posting the advise on overclocking videos. You can add our club to your signature if you want. Once we have enough people, I'll start a database and we can become an official club too.

Actually Hardware Overclocking is really good at the technical information too, I wonder if, like me, he has an electronics engineering technician background.

That looks awesome. I also have a 1070, my GPU only has a green LED though, it's a Zotac FE. My RAM is kind of plain, Crucial Value RAM DDR3-1600. I haven't tried to OC my RAM, it probably won't do too well at that and I don't want memory corruption.

I have one, too. I have been using it since the summer.

Has there been a fix for having to set the aura color after each reboot?

Anyone here using an M.2 drive in pcie mode with raid? I have one I tried to use in my intel rig (intel ssd 600) that is supposed to be able to run in pci-e mode, but bios won't see it when I tried to set it up under raid 0. Since it didn't do that in that pc, I thought I might try it in my amd fx rig.

No, I am still using 701. Do 801 or 901 fix the Aura issue? I am not having any stability issues, so I didn't think I needed an update.

I'm running 801, aura issue is still there. There's a 901 out now? What's in that one?

More stability didn't have any problems with the 0801.

Strange ez update didn't find any thing, (the stand alone program that can't manually install bios updates) you can manually install it using ez update in ai suite 3

Darned thing erased all my settings including saved profiles, I tried to restore my overclock settings from memory, but IBT kept failing when before it worked, so I guess I'll have to start again from scratch.
