Hello ladies and gentlemens! In this review, I will tell about my experience in buying and using the motherboard ASUS ROG STRIX X470-F GAMING (AM4, ATX).
- Cold VRM
- Power as best as possible (phases, circuits and their quantity, throughput)
- Overclocking capability
And after a long comparison, viewing reviews, collecting reviews, I still settled on the ASUS ROG STRIX X470-F GAMING. It absorbed everything that I wanted to get, and with the bonuses of the store I also managed to save quite a lot, which was very useful when buying a processor .
There is nothing much to tell about the work of the store. I ordered one day, the next morning, as always, I already received an SMS notification that the order arrived at the pickup point, come, pick it up. As always, pleasant, adequate staff, the complete absence of any problems as well as queues. In general, some positive emotions.
Here is the board itself.
The look is just great. Not too bright, but with a corporate logo backlight (If you wish, disabling like any other setting is available in BIOS) But appearance, as we know, is not the main thing.
She came to me in this form.
In fact, if you look closely, the box was decently frayed in some places, but oh well, the main thing is that all the contents were whole, beautifully packed and literally dazzled with their grandeur.
Full equipment looks like this.
What is there just not found. And stickers, and discount coupons for some little things, a bunch of cables, instructions, something like a letter of thanks from the company and that thing for the doorknob. and of course the driver disk.
Well, on this I will probably finish drinking all the tinsel and move on to what is really important.
And here begins just a fairy tale. on this motherboard, 6 phases of power that go to power the processor and 2 phases of power serve our socket, and how cool it is for me (the power phases are honest, not dual, no fraud, which means I still have a lot of potential for updating systems in the future, which is very relevant in the context of the recently appeared Amd 3000 series, I think that after flashing BIOS without fear of blowing up a computer, I can put up to 12 nuclear processors there. honest 6 0 amperes, which is also very important in my opinion. To summarize the power supply, I’ll say that it pulls almost all existing processors (at the time of writing this review) and allows them to arrange the most terrible overclocking for which we love AMD so much.
It’s a voltage regulator module. It is also undeniably a very important element of any motherboard, especially if you like to overclock your systems for the most I do not want. But I would like to draw your attention to radiators that remove heat from them. Just look at them.
Tested the motherboard in tests, the maximum temperature was 48 degrees (it’s even too good to be true, but the fact remains) Measured by built-in temperature sensors because there was no pyrometer at hand, but I don’t think they fool me, and if so little.
It is officially stated that the board draws memory up to 3600 MHz, it was not officially assured at various forums that all this is nonsense and 3800 MHz and even 4000 MHz can be pulled out on it. But I decided so far not to go above the bar declared by the manufacturer. (Everything worked out of the box at the recommended frequency , tests did not reveal any problems, in BIOS itself there is an opportunity to set frequencies up to 4200 MHz but the manufacturer did not vouch for the operability at such power)
Here are such things. According to the above criteria, I chose a motherboard for myself, which is in my opinion what is of primary importance. Also, we have in reserve full of various outputs and interfaces hdmi, usb including Type-C, M.2 for ssd and all that you could wish for! I did not find any disadvantages for myself, I’m satisfied with everything (at least for now, but I hope my opinion will not change)
I advise you to buy this board even against the background of the x570 chip that appeared, I’m happy with everything, overclocking everything. I hope my review was useful to you, See you soon!
