I bought this motherboard when it had the $100 rebate back in... April? And I absolutely do not recommend it.

I've had nothing but trouble with getting the Aura to work, and had to do a full wipe of my drive. Note to others, install Auroa and DON'T install anything else. Even a clean uninstall using Revo will not fix your problem.

It's also impossible to use two NVMe drives in RAID while also retaining crossfire compatibility. This is extremely stupid on ASUS's part because they advertise 2-way SLI and 3-way Crossfire compatibility, yet they fail to mention that in order to have this kind of setup, you can't use your 2nd M.2 slot AT ALL.
Even a lower end motherboard splits a few lanes from the SATA ports so you can use your 2nd M.2 slot without killing off one or two of your GPU's. This makes sense because if you're going to be using NVMe, you're probably not going to be using all 6-8 SATA ports on the mobo. But no, ASUS figured no one would ever want to use their motherboard for it's clearly advertised 2/3 way SLI/Crossfire if they want more NVMe storage... You pick one or the other. Apparently this "high end" board is too good for both.

Extremely disappointing because having Crossfire and the ability to eventually add a 2nd M.2 slot was important for me.

Should also support Zen 2 (3X00) chips, but you'll have to order a boot kit from AMD to flash the bios update.

Here's a link below on how to get a loner chip to do the update.

I haven't seen so many USB ports on a motherboard before... wish I got this instead of a B350-F

Lots of BIOS bugs still being worked out for Ryzen 3000series CPUs (https://www.overclock.net/forum/1...-4248.html). I have one with a Ryzen 1700 and it's great. Waiting for BIOS to become more stable before jumping to Ryzen 3000 with it. I'd personally get the C7H for X470 chipset. My Asus Strix X470-I has worked great with the 3900x I have in it for my Plex/Blue Iris/Minecraft/Home Server. The Strix did need a earlier CPU to flash it though (no flashback), which I happened to have already.

Keep in mind this is an eATX motherboard before buying. Some mid tower cases are not big enough to have this fit in.

Just a warning/FYI: This is an E-ATX board, bigger than standard "full size" ATX. Make sure it fits your case if you want it.

Yep, this is how I got it to work with my 3700x. Working well so far.

Amd refused to ship a boot kit if the OEM has it within their power to do the Bios update for you. They don't care if it costs you to ship etc. This did not. Work out the way I wanted. I just bought an Athlon 200 and will keep on hand

as mentioned earlier, this procedure is not needed with this board. you can flash the bios without a CPU, and, no ram needed either
