Anandtech Review of this board.

https://www.anandtech.com/show/14...verview/37

At this price point, they call it entry-level x570 and lacks RGB (important to some, not to me)

Is this RGB a thing for this genration of kids? I know we had lights and neons in the past but it appaers RGB is on every freaking part now.

RGB is a big thing, so Motherboards typically have to support it. There's a huge segment of the enthusiast/builder stuff that focuses on RGB lighting (cases, fans, coolers, RAM, mobos, pretty much any part.).

I own like 12 Hue bulbs, so any RGB conflicts with my regular ambient lighting, and trying to find a non-RGB is not difficult (since it's usually cheaper for non-RGB anyway).

With Motherboards, you have to "pay" for the RGB support regardless, since every entry level board supports RGB fans.

Insightful video. Seems Luke doesn't like any of the boards too much, with maybe the Asrock doing the best. However, the Asrock review on NE are pretty hard on it, so chalk it up to "none of the above" as my choice.

You might wanna rewatch that video. The Asrock was the second weakest performer (after MSI). He recommends the Asus and Aorus options.

Based solely on VRMs, the commented that the Asrock had 12,000hr caps, while 2 of the other 3 only had 5,000hr caps. That's what stood out to me.

Exploding electrolytic capacitors? Sounds like a gold mine for a lawsuit!

It's not like it hasn't happened before. I replaced scores of Dell motherboards in our enterprise because of this mess.
