GIGABYTE X570 motherboards based on the AMD X570 Chipset provide full support for 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Processors. The all-new design is a testament to GIGABYTE's dedication to design quality. GIGABYTE X570 motherboards offer a rich list of features such as support for PCIe 4.0 and USB Type-C interfaces on select boards, refined audio, high speed of Ethernet and latest standard of WIFI design, to fulfill users' performance, audio, and data transfer needs.

Nowadays, most end-users will only have one add-in card...the GPU, so being ITX sized, one can build a powerhouse with a very small footprint, which is what I intend to do - forgive the pictures of the test bench (work-in-progress)
1) The board has very beefy VRMs with a 6 phase 70A setup - which is better than a large majority of the X570 range even when compared to other board manufacturers
2) Intel WIFI and Intel GbE ethernet connections, and a decent WIFI antenna - surprising how many manufacturers cheap out on this!
3) Top of the range Realtek ALC 1220-VB audio codec
4) USB type C port
5) Now I'm not one for RGB bling bling, but the board has tastefully done the RGB lighting and it's not too garish/in-your-face
6) For an ITX board, it also has all the features of its larger ATX brethren, such as support for two NVMe M.2 drives, which is always a bonus
7) The board also has CPU-less BIOS flashing which is always a big help should one feel the need to upgrade to the next generation of Ryzen processors in future
8) Lastly, and also most importantly, Gigabyte has a UK based RMA service with a very good reputation within the overclocking community, so if it ever goes wrong, I know it shouldn't be a hassle to get it sorted (unlike ASUS).
9) (Support for PCIE 4.0)
1) The X570 chipset has a fan - but basically all of the X570 range except the halo-tier boards have a chipset fan. Initially, I had reservations about it, but it is honestly not that noisy, and I cannot hear it spinning above my Gentle Typhoon fans. But that being said, it is an extra potential point of failure.
1) The price. Yes it is expensive compared to the X470/B450 range, but X570 is meant to be a tier above. Essentially, you get what you pay for. Some will see this as a negative, some won't.
I personally think that the Aorus X570I PRO WIFI is the best value X570 board available.
I did consider getting the MSI B450 I gaming plus AC to pair with my 3700x, but in the end decided to get the Aorus X570I instead. The MSI B450I is around £90 cheaper, but, in comparison to the Aorus X570I:
1) The MSI has weaker VRMs and VRM cooling. This is important if one is going to run a high end CPU like the Ryzen 3900X or the soon to be released Ryzen 3950X. Aorus therefore gives greater upgrade flexibility
2) Lack of CPU-less BIOS flash on the MSI B450I
3) Lower end audio codec on the MSI B450I
4) No USB type C port on the MSI B450I
5) Only support for one NVMe M.2 drive on the MSI B450I, vs two on the Aorus X570I
6) Intel LAN on the Aorus X570I vs Realtek LAN on the MSI B450I - most people will know that Intel GbE ethernet connections are faster and more stable than their Realtek equivalent
7) Slower WIFI (AC) on the MSI B450I vs WIFI (AX) on the Aorus X570I
8) With the newer X570 chipset, the Aorus X570I supports PCIE 4.0. The MSI B450I only supports PCIE 3.0. This may not be an advantage currently, as there's limited number of NVMe SSDs (and graphics cards) that take advantage of PCIE 4.0, however, if one is going to keep the board with an eye for the next few years, then this is a good way to future-proof oneself.
TL;DR - Avoid, Consider, Shortlist or Buy? Just go ahead and buy. :)
Der Chipsatz/M.2 Kühler hingegen hinterlässt bei mir große Fragezeichen. Der ist ineffizient, extrem laut und einfach schlecht designet. In einem offenen Aufbau mit einem 120er Lüfter der Frischluft von oben auf den Chipsatz bläst, kreischt der kleine Mini Lüfter mit ~7000 UPM und versucht vergeblich SSD und PCH zu Kühlen (86° PCH temp nach 10 Minuten Daten Kopieren von SATA auf rückseitige M.2 SSD ).
Apropos M.2 Kühlung: Trotz vollfächiger Abdeckung der vorderen SSD durch den Kühler, hat dieser keinerlei Kontakt zur SSD, das heißt die SSD hat außer den Luftstrom von dem mini Lüfter keinerlei Kühlung. Es liegt zwar ein ~2mm Wärmeleitpad in M.2 Größe bei, wofür das allerdings gedacht sein soll, weiß vermutlich selbst bei Gigabyte niemand.
Legt man es oben auf die vordere SSD, bringt das rein gar nichts, dann hat man zwischen SSD und dem Chipsatzkühler noch gute 6-7mm Luft. Unten drunter, also zwischen Chipsatz und SSD macht auch keinen Sinn. Dafür ist es zum einen viel zu lang und zum zweiten selbst bei einer einseitigen SSD zu dick. Also muss es für die SSD auf der Rückseite sein!... oder doch nicht? denn dafür ist es zu dünn..
Das Umstellen des PCH Lüfter-Profils bringt auch nichts, der Lüfter ist nach spätestens 10 Minuten immer an und deutlich hörbar. Im idle dreht der kleine Lüfter mit ~3000 UPM.
Ich habe jetzt zwischen Chipsatz und SSD ein passendes Wäremeleitpad und einen üppig dimensionierten Kühler auf der M.2 SSD - Der Kühlt jetzt die SSD und den darunter liegenden Chipsatz ganz ohne kleinen mini Lüfter. Die Temperaturen liegen jetzt bei ~55° im Idle. Meine Ohren danken es mir.
Fazit der Geschichte? Kauft euch ein B450/X470 Board. Spart Zeit Geld und Nerven.
So when I say this motherboard is a challenge I mean it.
1/2) BSOD all the time
This board will BSOD all the time. You will have to go on forums and try to decipher what action to take because it may be the processor, the ram, the drivers, the version of the drivers, or the bios version or the motherboard.
For me it turned out to be both the drivers supplied with the motherboard and the bios shipped with the motherboard.
So I had to ditch the drivers that Aorus / Gigabyte ship on the CDROM and go for AMD drivers instead. This made the BSOD less frequent
The BSOD did keep happening so more forums searches and a lot of MemTest86 runs.
Eventually I deduced my older ram was fine ( no errors on MemTest86 ) but the motherboard did not work well with the RAM.
I had to update the BIOS from what was shipped on the board (F2) to F6. This was to cater for my older RAM sticks which I kept from my old motherboard. Updating the bios is always a fraught, difficult process, so it is a shame most users will have to do this.
After a few days testing on F6, no BSOD so far.
2/2) The NVME drive is literally hidden away
There are two M2 NVME slots. However the one you can see underneath the board... is not the main one
The main one is hidden under a cooling fan section next to the processor slot.
The manual does not make it clear that you have to unscrew the cooling fan to install the M2 drive.
Seriously, an ikea style 1,2,3,4 sequence of photos would have been easy for them to put in the manual. Instead you are left trying to cross check with a 2D CAD drawing which shows more of a PCB layout simplified view
However be aware of the Bios Version, if your is like mine which is Version F3, i would advise to update it immediately that fixes all the bugs and compatibility issues.
Thankfully you can update it directly through the bios using the dedicated white USB slot on the motherboard without going into windows and its surprisingly dead easy to update
(Make sure you download the update on your old or another computer and put it on your USB Stick)
If it wasn't for the initial issues it would have been a 5 star however once bios had been updated it has been trouble free and still worth going for
