    pcie 4.0 and still no 10gbe... i bet if phones had ethernet they would be at 40gbe by now

    Nothing better than ALC1220 still? And what's wrong with chipset fans?

    Small fans make noise. Heatink -> Passive, let airflow inside the chassis do the rest.

    i wonder why the m2 slot listed as pci gen 4.0 x 4 lines is still listed as 32Gb/s

    That is pretty weird seeing active cooling on the chipset. Part of me questions if AMD is pushing a tad too aggressively with their chipsets. I'd much rather use PCIe 3.0 than have another fan. Seems to me they had room to use a bigger and passive cooler. You have to sacrifice a lot of metal to include a fan.
     
  7. We picking this board apart??? Cool. I would rather see dual 8-pin cpu power. I don't mind active cooling on chipset (especially if it runs way too hot with just heatsink) but if its a crappy, cheap fan that is gonna go out in under a year, then i will pass. Not the world's largest biostar fan anyways...

    I don't think that's really necessary unless you plan to use LN on the 16-core model (in which case, you're probably not going to opt for Biostar). A 1950X overclocked to 4GHz is within the limits of a single 8-pin connector. Zen2 will most likely clock higher than a 1950X, but it also has a much less demanding chipset (and memory controller) while having the efficiency advantage of 7nm. So, I suspect people will hit thermal limits before they hit power limits.

    On a CPU like Ryzen, 8+4 is already overkill really. Combined those two, and the ATX 24-pin, you can get 500W into the CPU. There will always be Extreme OC boards with even more connectors, but this isn't one of them.

    For chipset cooling, advanced boards will hopefully use a heatpipe to get it to a cooler block with more space, and maybe get rid of one M.2 slot instead.
     
  10. I agree with you both (especially with the part about not using biostar for extreme oc)......i'm just sayin, if this board had everything i wanted, it would have 2 x 8 pin cpu power. No such thing as too much power available. I never run anything anywhere close to max load if i can help it. I must admit it is nice to see a board that isn't lit up like a carnival ride.

    I actually like the northbridge/southbridge cooler on this as long as it's just rpms in the hundreds and not in the thousands. Hottest thing on my pc is the mobo chipset especially when i am watch high res streams. Even my GFX card sits at around 40C doing this but northbridge temp are 60+. Althought i'm told these chipsets can reach 80C no problem.

    So not really an issue but i would like it to be lower while being passively cooled and only watching videos.

    Tbh the first time I saw the MSI X570 "teaser" photo, I thought it's SB heatsink below had or at least looked like it could house a small fan based on parallelogram mesh-ish like shape cutout at it's top and what it looks like vents below it. "Similarly" to ASUS Monstrosity Extreme SB heatsink.

    But who knows. It could even be a tiny OLED display. :p

    So unless more X570 mobos surface with active cooling requirements for the SB chip, it could well just be a Biostar/ECS design thing.

    Some birdies say low end boards due to cost will have to go with passive and are likely to throttle with the high end processors and high end boards will all have to have active cooling.
    That 16 core is going to be quite thirsty. Just look at that 8+4pin, hungerly looking!

    If the new Zen 2.0 and X570 boards are OC friendly- then AMD gonna get massive amount of free publicity from the OC community and world wide OC competition events that all convert to AMD after 10 years that only Intel was used.
    For reference -if Ryzen 2700X could OC to ~6.65GHz then it could match 9900K@7GHz WR in CB R15, so zen 2.0 with 4000Mhz+ memory and ~10%IPC- you get the picture.
    Pluse, adding 16C to the competition, it's going to be more fun+ the hardware will be cheaper then HEDT X299 + it's i9 CPU's= more OC friendly.

    The fan should be optional for the higher Ryzen 2 versions above 8 cores.

    Finally someone found a use for all the leftover Geforce FX coolers...

    I'm pretty sure Biostar is famous for Memory over clocking...........

    Biostar does not = AMD...;) There will be differences between x570 mboards--with some major differences here and there.
