    The Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 5 motherboard sits in the Aorus gaming line of products. pop a Ryzen 7 1700 in there and with a bit of cooling you'll have a pretty amazing and fast PC for not a lot of mone...

    I think the link to post a comment is wrong. It takes you to this thread.

    Also about the overclocking page

    Results - Ryzen 7 1700X / 4100 MHz / 3000 MHz DDR4

    I am a little confused in this page.

    The title should say 1700 without the X?
    The charts should say 1700@4.1 and not @4.0?

    Ah wrong the linkage, sorry about that. And correct, very sharp eye you have there. Let me fix that. Thanks for reporting.

    I would really like to see the effect of overclock on some of the games benched.

    Great review.
    I see that Gaming 5 users already have F5 BIOS, and K7 are still tied to F3 :(
    It is a pity, especially since these motherboards seem to be almost identical. F3b is not bad - without problem I set the Corsair DDR4 at 2933 MHz, but I would have liked something more.

    Great review.!

    As always i say :)

    Butt can't see the point going to CAT7 when 90% world's users are on T10/100/1000 Is more then anof if you ask me. rly no point use Cat7 on 2Mbit/512 Adsl or even on a Xdsl 100/50

    Agree missing WiFi ac support to

    Thank you. But what I wanted to see is this combo of faster RAM and CPU overclock. This mobo review is perfect for that, because you tested the RAM at slower speed with the same CPU OC in the other mobo review/s.

    No I disagree, you are only looking at the WAN side of things.

    I find that in our LAN 1000 Mbps slowly is becoming a bottleneck. NAS units for example, file copying it all ends at ~110 MB/sec while that could be a fourfold of that. Not just file copying, think streaming as well. All devices in your household are changing, NICs need to adapt to that new demand. Meanwhile our PCs can do soo much faster with SSDs and such.

    Technology needs to advance and evolve. Embrace it :)

    Excellent review Hilbert and i'm glad you went back to AIO water cooling as this cpus do benefit from the extra cooling performance as you already found that out. Great board that can handle that cpu overclock and packed with features , a really well thought out mobo and a good looking one too. Great to see Aida64 has been updated and now offers proper support for Ryzen cpus.

    A thing that I don't understand is why do Power Consumption test with overclocked processor only with Content Creation, not all tests (video transcoding, 1080p mkv playback, ...)? I think would be nice see the average consumption on more common loads too, not only the more intense scenario.

    Your idle and average power consumption will not differ much.

    In idle maybe a 5 to 10 Watt difference. Only under high loads the extra power consumption kicks in as you are utilizing and stressing all cores, which need more juice then.

    I thought the difference was bigger and more variable.

    Thanks.

    Really good review. Really surprised how close the performance to the 6950x it gets when OC'ed and only on dual channel RAM. Cannot wait to see quad channel 1:1 performance when it boils down to cpu/mb as the main difference.

    Two things I hope to eventually see here would be ram scaling for Ryzen on any of the 8 core cpu while OC'ed at 4 GHZ, and the to pit it up against typical Intel systems all OC'ed with the same RAM.

    This what us Gurus usually run and that would be our "norm". I personally don't know that many people who actually do not OC to a typical speed, let alone maxed out. Our office is the only one and those ladies just enter DB all day long.

    Perhaps in an update later with better bios to even the playing field.

    Great review, good board but im looking for some some $110 (and under) B350 Motherboards, like some ATX MSI

    wait a week more, they need to improve CPU Microcodes, maybe this will up CPU performance, memory compatibility and AVX fix :infinity:

    Gigabyte Aorus AX370 Gaming 5 or Asrock x370 Taichi

    Im looking into these two boards but I hear so many negative things about gigabyte! Can anyone help?
