Newegg via Ebay Biostar X370GT7 w/ RGB fan $80.99 AC/FS

$80.99
+8 Deal Score
3,508 Views
Solidly reviewed X370 motherboard along with an RGB fan. No rebates to mess with, just the ebay 10% off Tech coupon PRIMOTECH to take it from an already on sale $89.99 to $80.99.

Free slow (blahhh) shipping.

Previously the best deal price for this was $99 with a coupon from Newegg.

I personally already ordered one, primarily because of how good the VRMs on this board are [tweaktown.com] (particularly compared to many other X370 and B350 boards in the same price range), along with no huge negative marks anywhere else. All of the standards you'd expect from an X370 board are present (x4 M.2, etc) along with nice extras like RGB strip headers and a USB-C port.

3 PCI-E x16 slots, 2 3.0 (running at x8/x8 with 2 cards) and 1 2.0 running at x4.

I've been trying to find a solid B350/X370 motherboard deal for $80 or less (I mean, obviously, preferably 50 or less with coupons/etc) for completing a Ryzen 2600 build, but the VRM lookup tables are always a bit iffy or reviews end up 50/50 for most boards in that range. This one gets solid marks for the VRMs both from that Tweaktown review linked earlier and this comparison chart [imgur.com]. And, you know, that free RGB fan doesn't hurt, given the prices on those. No clue if the shipped BIOS will be up to date, so that may be an adventure.

Compare to currently $139 on Newegg proper [newegg.com], even higher on Amazon.

So are you looking for ITX boards?

You should try to find skinnier cases

Same, I really wanted to go mATX this time, but I might just do some kind of weird custom under-monitor super wide thin desktop build using extruded aluminum x rails for structure with acrylic panels now that that's out. Or it will just go in my old ATX case (*not sure how ambitious she's actually feeling*)

I've kept passing up the mini ITX deals because I need at least 1 extra PCIe x1 slot =/

It's worth noting that there *are* some smaller (ish) full ATX motherboard cases. And most standard mATX cases only shave like 4" off the height, nothing else. The dual chamber ones are the interesting ones, but they *do* make some of those for full ATX (Rosewill has a couple I think)

Have you looked at the Thermaltake Core G3 [amazon.com] ($69 at Amazon right now)? Note you'll need a GPU riser of some kind for it, if you're using one.

I did looked into this one, but the downside is it use sfx power supply, which is unexpectly expensive. Anyway, thx for the input

For some reason there are almost no ATX cases that mount a standard ATX PSU sideways and use side mount GPU to go slim, it's part of why I'm considering just custom building a frame for one (out of extruded aluminum, like they use for 3d printer/laser cutter/etc builds) and buying acrylic to cut for the panels. But I have too many other projects as it is =/

There's the Biostar X370GT3, but the VRMs aren't as good as this board's. That and it's both more expensive than this sale and pretty much out of stock everywhere currently. That's the only x370 mATX I know of. I would have been fine with a B350 mATX, but so many of the cheaper ones have reports of VRM related problems. So I went with this, given the stacking of newegg's eBay sale price with the coupon.

There's not a USB version of whatever you need that other PCIe slot for?

There is, but the equivalent USB 3.0 version to my Blackmagic PCIe card is $200, soooooooo
