Cons: God awful BIOS releases, even now. BIOS F7a still wants the board to feed 1.55V through my 1600X until it dies, I suppose. Fortunately, setting the voltage manually seems to stick. Also, hilariously, the EasyTune software simply won't start on Windows 10. At all. Even the newest version of the software won't work, which is sad, because I did want to try it.
Update: And, unfortunately, it gets worse. Every subsequent BIOS release screws up some other piece of hardware compatibility. Those with Sound Blaster Z sound cards will notice their card won't work when booting up the PC from shutdown or sleep. The newest F10 BIOS release introduces issues for those of us running GTX 1080s, but, hey that's just a tiny segment of the population, surely. I've never had this much trouble with a board before. If it was still in the return window, I'd have sent it back long ago. Now I'm stuck with a $168 piece of junk and I have to buy a new board that actually works properly. That money is the last Gigabyte will ever see from me.
Good design, plenty of room around CPU for large block cooler (I use AIO but plenty of clearance around the CPU). Generally easy to use and setup - good location of various headers and headers are labelled on the board. BIOS code display on the motherboard helpful as are the 4 LEDs on the board that tell you if your power/CPU/memory/BIOS is ok (helped me out there because it told me my CPU wasn't working right initially - wasn't seated completely properly. Worked like a champ after that. Read XMP profile immediately even if this is an AMD board. So are the power and reset buttons on the board.
Things I wish it did better:
- Wish for more BIOS memory options to tweak memory ratio with BLCK > 100MHz to keep the memory at the correct speed. Still working on that as it wasn't evident to me at all how to do that in that BIOS.
- Didn't come with the latest BIOS in the box (F2) and refused to install new (F3) BIOS from the files from a USB stick: q-flash failed with "disk not found error" - ??? - it's a USB stick and in my view, if the board sees the USB stick and can boot and install windows from it, you'd think Q-flash would be able to recognize the stick and update the BIOS from it without having to install a full OS. BIOS update worked fine once windows was installed.
- Gigabyte has all these utilities to measure and tweak board settings instead of having just one. The windows based OC tuning utility crashes almost instantly in Windows 1703 "Creator Update".
- Case header (power, led, etc,) rather flimsy compared to other boards I've had (you need to insert the case headers in it rather than plug them into the part, then plug the part into the motherboard. Makes things hard depending on the connectors you get in your case.
Other observation is that the memory list on the Gigabyte site is strange to me: Example, some of the supported Corsair module part numbers are for Corsair 32Gb or 64Gb kits but Gigabyte only uses two modules in those kits - not the whole kit. In my case for DDR4 3200, the list showed for total of 16Gb (two 8Gb module), the part number listed is for the 32Gb kit (four modules). Not sure why. The support list should really pay attention to the kit size and not break kits up as that will just confuse buyers.
I have it setup with a 1700x, GTX 1080 and 16GB of GSkill Memory (Model F4-3200C16D-16GVR) that is clocked to 3200.
You do have to go into the settings to change the memory profile to get the 3200 performance otherwise it will default down to the base.
The one thing to note with this motherboards LCD code readout does not turn off after boot. And there are a few codes that will display after boot that are NOT error codes. They just designate what type of startup occurred. It would have been nice to have these documented in their manual but it's not. So can be a little nerve racking if you're not willing to find info from the actual bios manufacture.
Code: 40 - Startup from S3 standby. For windows 10 this is the fast-boot startup mode that is standard after a normal shutdown. Unless you go into your power settings of the OS windows does not actually do a full shutdown.
Code: 24 - Complete startup. This is normally triggered by actually doing a start->restart. A hard shut-down. Or if you went into your OS power settings and disabled the standby/fastboot startup.
Every now and again I will see a code A0. Which I think is tied to the app center software. I normally see it after changing the RGB color.
All in all a good looking board and no issues as of yet. I did upgrade to the latest bios right away. And I have the 1700x OCd to 4ghz

the bios would go on to the wrong monitor
the options in the bios were VERY limited. like 90% of the options are missing
the motherboard stopped working for me after i changed the vcore voltage. and my computer wouldn't turn on, and resetting after pulling out the motherboard battery didn't work either. had to send it back because my computer was dead after this even though it was completely within spec to make that change.
this motherboard made me have to rebuild my computer which was annoying to do. even though i know what to do, it still takes 30-1hr to do it.
also made me buy a psu power detection tool because I thought it might be a PSU issue not just motherboard.
also made me buy new thermal paste
also made me have to wait 3 days without a working computer. which fortunately I have a backup computer but if i didn't I would be more annoyed.
I mean the motherboard was working for a about a year just fine. but the main reason to get an x370 motherboard instead of a b350 or whatever they are called is because you expect the bios to be good and you expect a certain level of quality that just isn't there.
Firstly and most obviously, the GIGABYTE app centre is incredibly lacking, buggy and all round a pain which really doesn't feel like you're using a top of the line product. When I first installed it on top of my normal version of windows 10 which had previously been an older intel based system, it failed to install the C++ redist it required to work and so would constantly crash and just generally not work. The fix for this required me to uninstall all versions of the C++ visual studio from my computer, which in turn made many games stop working as many games install a version of this when they open for the first time (It's often what steam is doing when you click play for the first time after downloading a a game). So, not off to a good start.
I then tried to use the RGB software seeing as this is a large unique part of the board and probably why a lot of people choose this board over more mainstream options like ASUS or MSI. To put it simply, it's severely lacking and just generally seems like it was thrown together. There are only 5 preset modes, and then the other presets are greyed out for some reason I guess they are not supported for some reason even though this is their top of the line motherboard (!?) Some presets have speed sliders also which just do absolutely nothing. You can select a colour cycle but cannot control anything about it. Also just to make it clear it is impossible to control RGB parts of the motherboard separately. You choose a colour for all of them and that's it. The other insane thing is I have an RGB CPU cooler also, and for some reason you can ONLY control the colour of the whole motherboard and the CPU cooler at the same time. Meaning most of your computer HAS to be the same colour at any time. (See photos). I also have an RGB strip which thankfully I can control separately (they are plugged in to different parts of the motherboard).
HOWEVER the "advanced" settings for the lighting is also very broken. I wanted to setup two different colour cycles, one for my strip and one for the rest of my motherboard which cycle at slghtly different speeds so that over time every colour combo is displayed slowly. However, there is an issue with the custom mode where before starting to fade into any next given colour, it will for a second just switch back to blue. No matter what I tried including fully uninstalling all gigabyte apps. This is on top of the software generally crashing and also taking a second or two to apply ANY changes you make to the lighting settings. On top of this, whatever lighting profile you choose, it is not applied until roughly 10 seconds after you sign in to windows at which point all the lights suddenly switch off, then start your profile. (this is booting off an M.2 SSD which overall takes 30 seconds to get into windows in the first place)
It just feels shoddy and a huge waste on what could be such a nice motherboard.
Some positives however is that the windows fan control software is very comprehensive and useful. Can't fault it so good job on that gigabyte.
In terms of the BIOS, can't really complain, it's got everything you'd need including a similar version of the fan control software as found in windows except for some reason mouse sensitivity in the BIOS is ridiculously slow. I have tried with three different mice, two from razer and one from Logitech and all of them have exactly the same incredibly slow mouse sensitivity which makes navigating the BIOS take 3 times as long as it should. You can use the keyboard for most of it however for whatever reason the fan software has no keyboard support so it took me around 10 minutes to set my own curves for 4 fans.
Another quick thing about the GIGABYTE software. They decided to make it try and be an all encompassing software updater for the system so will in theory see when you need to upgrade chrome etc. The reality because it's so shoddy is that every 15 minutes, it will pop up that there's updates for my computer when it displays none. It's incredibly infuriating and I'm thinking of uninstalling it and losing my custom fan profiles and RGB settings just because of it. When you're paying this much for a premium motherboard, it should not feel like I'm using an old laptop from 2012 that hasn't been updated in years.
One last thing. you NEED to install the AMD chipset drivers on this motherboard. I don't know if this is true on all ryzen boards but my system was blue-screening consistently until I installed them. I have never had to install them on any of the many systems I have built (including AMD) until now but they appear to be essential as they immediately stopped my bluescreens.
And just for context, everything I've been talking about has been true both before and after a full clean windows installation.
