Received my Xtreme on 7/12/19 after a few delays from Newegg. They randomly opened up Pre-Order for them on the 5th so I pulled the trigger.

It seems as though the board wasn't fully ready for release by the 7th, but wasn't a big deal. But it's been on backorder the entire time I've seen it on Newegg now, so owners should slowly start popping up.

Will receive my 3900X on 7/18, but will be out of town so the actual build won't happen for a few weeks.

Got some shots of the board however...

My motherboard will be here tomorrow then the wait begins for the 3950X. I think the X570 Aorus Xtreme might be the most beautiful motherboard I have ever seen and likely the most powerful as well, I'm coming from a 5960X setup with an Asus rampage V Extreme mobo. Will build in my Xigmatek Elysium case again so there will be plenty of airflow, I have also a new Corsair 1600i PSU to go with this new build so exciting times ahead. :)

Lets get some overclocking tutorial videos for this board with the 3900x on here so we can compare notes. I am on 4.3ghz all cores but i am still learning some of this new oc stuff since i came from the x58 platform.

I put one one back order today from the 'egg; I've been very happy with my Xtreme Z390 board so expecting good things from the X570 as well.

M.2pcie 4.0 isn't recognized by my Xtreme in the bios. I did manage to install Windows because the boot priority saw the USB stick but never did it see the actual m.2. I do have some factors that could be the cause but I'm not sure. One being I was short one 8pin for the cpu and two being I had the m.2 installed in the second slot not the first for the bigger heatsink plate of metal. After rebooting and checking the bios continues to not see the m.2 so next I'm going to try and check the boot sequence option (f12) I saw a video where their m.2 wasn't seen by the bios but through the boot sequence were able to see the harddrive. I don't have any other hardives connected and I'll probably update bios after I install my new PSU I'm getting Thursday. If there's anyone else that may have solutions please let me know.

My Xtreme arrived with the Ryzen 7 3800X this morning.

No good camera though so can't take such quality pictures as above.

Seems the parts had tumbled around a little looking at the packaging.

Yeah mine had moved around as well inet hadn't put any bubbleplastic in the very large box but luckily it's seems fine. It's by far the heaviest motherboard I have ever encountered it feels extremely impressive. Have the AX1600i since before so now the base of the build is covered, now for memory, cpu cooler (likely another Phanteks PH-TC14PE Black since it's very good), a NVMe Gen4 SSD (should probably wait for better controller but the gigabyte one is so sexy) and the 3950X Cpu and we are ready to go. :)

I'm running memtest86 runs for various memory speeds I can boot at the moment and I'm quite blown that my Micron E-die can run 4000Mhz @ 1.200volts with XMP/AUTO timings for 2x8Gb at the moment.

EDIT: For 4066 speed I need to make changes and can't run AUTO everything it seems. But damn 4000Mhz with 1.200V and AUTO/XMP.

M.2 slot covers...

I have an X570 Xtreme on backorder!

Question on the M.2 slots for those who already have this board. Are the M.2 slot covers just decorative, or are they functional heat sinks?

Are you supposed to put them back in place after installing the M.2 SSD drive or do you leave them off?

Do they make contact with the SSD? What do you do if the SSD already has an attached heat sink? Do you have to remove it, or do you leave the cover off?

They are indeed are a functioning heat sink they even have the thermal pads covered by a thin layer of plastic behind the metal plate to prevent the stickiness from accumulating dust till you apply the m.2 in the slot. I installed mine in the second slot because it was a bigger chunk of metal for better heat dissipation. I did remove the thermal covering for the pcie 4.0 it would be a horrible asthetic look if you did keep the 1st slots metal plate off but i have a feeling it would be a better heat sink if you did because the bottom of the metal plates are not covering the m.2 only the top part. Choice is yours better heat sink vs aesthetic looks. I am though currently trying to figure out if me installing the m.2 in the second slot is the reason why the bios doesn't recognize the m.2. inconvenient timing on going to vacation the day i finally had all the pieces together to actually try and get it up and running. Windows installed fine but after the reboot the bios still didnt see he m.2. Someone already linked a nice video though in chinese on the possibility of using a boot drive bios update. I have alot of things I can try now when I return home.

Thanks for the info!

I'm considering getting one of the new aorus PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs. They come with an already-attached finned copper heatsink. (Maybe all PCIe 4.0 drives will ?)

It's not clear what the best way to install it on the x570 Xtreme would be...

A little skinny yet, but will get filled up tomorrow.

EDIT: Now it's filled up with what it needed. Took a whole day and more.

I don’t have XFR and PBO in AMD CBS menu. I have only Pstates/Throttling, IBS, Prefetcher, Memory interleaving, and DRAM controller configuration. Bios version is F3e.

Probably only works on Ryzen 3000 sku:s then I guess.

Moreover here is no Ryzen power plan available in 1903 Windows 10 after installation of fresh AMD X570 chipset drivers.
