ahh still dont know if i sould go for the Master(because of the 3.0 Front USB ports)
or for the Asus Hero, because i think the Bios COULD be better and MAYBE a bit better RAM OC (4 Sticks 3733)

Gigabyte has been on a mission for better Bioses lately. If you have used a Z390 board you would see how far they have come. I would buy the Giga over the Asus for the support if you ever have an issue. All you need to do is google how bad Asus is to customers these days.
yeah i read really bad things. Like on the Asus Rog Phone. Failed screen wont get repaiered under Warrenty and so on...

Aorus big Pro for me is:
Real Heatsink for VRM
2 USB3.0 header for my case

And i can bet, that the master will be cheaper than the Hero(Asus tax)

The Master has a Direct PWM setup, the Hero is using 7 phases with doubled up powerstages. If you aren't using LN2 (nobody does for a daily system, let's be realistic), provided the BIOS isn't completely buggy (it shouldn't be), then the 12-14 phases from the Infineon PWM on Gigabyte's Aorus Master or Xtreme will give you better ripple and allow you to shut off phases more granularity when not in use (i.e. achieving peak efficiency across the power delivery spectrum all the way down to idle).



Additionally the backplate on the Master is thermally conductive to the VRM section, whereas all you get on the Hero is a small brace at the back.


50A IR3556 has the same footprint as the 60A IR3555 so the main difference is maximum amperage rating. Even threadripper TR 2950X used around max 350W on ambient , so power quality is of more importance once you exceed 10 powerstages.

Also if you fail overclocks on memory the Aorus boards down to the Aorus Pro have dual BIOS, with Master/Xtreme having a switch. The single BIOS (SB) switch is invaluable since it physically isolates the BIOS chips. If you get hit with malware (https://www.tomshardware.com/news/asus-implements-new-certificate-structure,39072.html , https://www.techpowerup.com/248827/...-push-software-into-your-windows-installation) or a flash a corrupt BIOS you don't need to RMA your board. I don't think that has been stated enough, since a corrupt BIOs on a non dual BIOS board has to still rely on flashing from USB. There were plenty of people that needed to RMA their Crosshair boards because the "Crashfree BIOS" or "BIOS flashback" doesn't work.

In terms of usability the M.2 heatshields being separate also makes it less of a hassle and the Hero only comes with 2x M.2.

In terms of integrated audio the Master is also stronger spec-wise, it uses ESS 9118 instead of ESS 9023P , has WIMA caps, and the audio codec is ALC1220-VB rather than ALC1220.

Every Master board comes with WIFI 6 +BT whereas the Hero has it as an option.

Thanks. That sealed the deal for me! Cant wait anymore. I wanna burn my saved cash :thumb:

So which of the x570s don't come with a stupid chipset fan either glaring in your face or hidden under tiny slits inside the wanna be heatsink?

Any chipsetless boards?
Aorus Extreme comes without a fan

Stupid question: When i set up a raid 0 on my master and update the bios, is the raid than dead? Do i have to make a backup of the raid first and then format and recreate the raid with the new bios?

Sooo i got my cpu.
now i have a big problem with setting up my raid.
I have to set the Raidstuff to ON. OK
Now i cant see any Sata device anymore. BAD
I have 3 TB HDDs. One normal plate and 2 in raid0
How can i first get my nonraid disk to show up in windows WITHOUT formating the disk?
In the bios i MUST wipe the data to create a raid with with one disk. ***?

edit:
No raid settings enabled in the bios:
I see M2,ssd,1 hdd and one 3,65TB plate that i cant use in windows or even format hmmmm

edit2: created the raid over windows :rolleyes:

This youtube video helped me setup my raid 0 although there is other ways also.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqQu8mKA7z8

There is another video shorter but it did not help me solve the issue into booting it seems to have renamed the hdd when it needed to go into raid 0 format which is what threw me off for so long.

also if you going to install it from windows setup make sure you do the directions on here it does work.
tried it for an houre. Still had to format my nonraid plate. So i set the bios to nonraid and created the rain in windows. Easy and works great so far!
Still thanks :)

FYI this fix, care of AMD-Robert, seems to have fixed the issue on my board. It's a work around, but it works! With this power setting my cpu and voltage downclocks properly with 3600 XMP RAM. My cinebench score also stayed the same. R15: 202/1631.

Set Power mode to balance.
Change min processor state to 85%.
Change maximum processor state to 100%.
Works for me! Still wont boost over 4.3Ghz.
Under my heatkiller waterblock with liquid metal the highest temps i saw so far was 62°. So i should have headroom for some boosting actions xD

Those XMP settings are for (2) sticks not 4. You can try the ryzen calculator to get timings for 4 sticks. For reference I can do 2 sticks @ 4266 (the rated XMP profile) with my hyperX ram. If I use 4 sticks I have to drop down to 4000Mhz. I havn't had time to play with getting all 4 sticks up to 4266. Instead I focused on 3600Mhz and getting the timings down to CL14 at IF 1:1. Still tweaking settings but promising so far.
CAs14 is hard to get. cant even do CAS15^^

So far this settings are stable. any thought what i could tweak more?

Is aorus master as good as asus ch8?
They are on the same level.
But Master has wifi onboard and a real heatsink for the vrm

How much Voltage can we push to the VDDG? Saw 1040mV are stock for the IF.

played a bit in the bios with voltage (Auto/normal) PBO and XFR
Now less Heat, lower voltage and less Powerusage with more performence for free:

Everything stock. Only changed the CPU voltage from auto to normal

Wanna share my newest performence settings:
In bios:
Vcore to "normal".
The voltage below to "normal"

Under the XFR settings change PBO to "enabled".
Under the other PBO settings to "Disabled".

Powerplan "high performence" minclock 1, maxclock 100.

This way i get low idlevoltages + highest single and multi performence. Boost up to 4,525Mhz. Saw one time 4,575Mhz.

Some results with the different XFR/PBO combis. Testet in CPU benchmark, because faster^^

XFR(0,9-1,47V)
535,9
8391,2
XFR+PBO(1,32V)
525,0
8287,9
PBO(0,9-1,47V)
535,1
8239,2
All disabled
534,8
8205,9


Hope this will help some here

I just got a Aorus Master and 3900x up and running. I am having issues with the XMP profile for my ram. My PC will boot with the XMP profile but will BSoD after awhile. I ran memtest86 at stock ram settings and there are no errors after 1 pass but using the XMP profile I get 400+ errors before even one pass completes. I don't know if that indicates bad ram or the XMP profile is not stable. I am not getting any BSoD at stock ram settings during general PC usage.

I have a CMK16GX4M2B3600C18 kit which is on the QVL as I understand it should work. The XMP profile name seems odd in the BIOS as well showing DDR4-3500 but under advance settings it looks like the correct "System Memory Multiplier" of 36 is being selected.
did you set the voltage to 1,35V? the board dont set the voltage for the xmp

@GBT-MatthewH
just a little question:
what are your contacts say is a good max SOC-Voltage for 24/7?
Ryzen1000+2000 was like 1.2V tops for everyday
