    ASUS rolling out many Ryzen 3000 series motherboards. In this review we check out the Crosshair VIII HERO in combination with a Ryzen 7 3700X processor, AMD prepped the X570 chipset, that offers a mor...

    Brought this board last week, fairly impressed with the quality of it so far. Sadly I'm still waiting on my 3900X to give it a run out.

    According to Hilberts screenshot he's using the 7507 BIOS based on the older AGESA 1.0.0.2, Asus have an updated BIOS 0702 based on the newer AGESA 1.0.0.3AB.

    these asus bios's are confusing, why in the heck is 0066 the latest AMD validated version for 3k reviews.

    Really nice mobo but unfortunately here Gougeland (NZ) it's well out of my financial reach at $746.35NZD add in the cost of a RyZen 3 R7 3700X at $573.85 and it starts getting well outta hand price wise combined that's $1300+ just for a CPU & Mobo and even if I sold my brand new 3 week old R7 2700 and TUF X470 Plus Gaming I'd still be quite alot short

    Nice review too HH you always do a great job

    Plenty of USB3.2 via internal connectors - I am probably blind because saw only one 3.2 connector between sata and ATX.

    By default: memory, fabric, and memory controller are tied at 1:1:1 ratio. This is true up to DDR4-3600 (1800MHz for all).
    When you go to 3601+, the IF snaps to 1800MHz, and then DRAM:IMC go 2:1 ratio at whatever mclk you have.
    You can also go back to 1:1 if you want to try it.

    So if 1800MHz then manual override...
    DDR4 3600MHz and above.

    Hi Hilbert and co. I have a question, in regards to the antenna support on the motherboard, are the antenna supplied or will we have to source that? I current have a "ASUS PCE-AC88 AC3100 Dual-Band Wi-Fi PCIe Adapter, 4 External Antenna with Stand". Would the external antenna still be compatible, do you think?

    Antennas are included, your own kit would have quad antenna connections. It's dual .. but the 'shark style' antennas are included in the WIFI mode SKU.

    I'll look up and change that line a bit, but obviously, I meant the IO panel where it is loaded with connectors.

    Waste on money. I have 2066 socket board ASRock Extreme 4, paid $165 and threw into mini M.2 Intel AX 200 WiFi 6...got Wifi 6 for $11 dollars...you get the idea.

    Boy the X570 pricing is just way out of reach $450!!!!!...even the low end ones are expensive....Not sure PCIe Gen 4 is worth that much especially as you will hardly notice any speed difference in the real world between a Gen 3 SSD and a Gen 4...

    I'd really like to see chipset latency, USB subsystem latency and interrupt issues on these mobo reviews. As a musician and crap, it's important.
