AORUS X570 XTREME
Some motherboards, if not a lot of them, are created fairly equally. The AORUS X570 XTREME on the other hand, looks set to create a new standard for AMD motherboards. Of course, it’s got its rivals from the likes of MSI and ASUS, who have their own flagship, but will the AORUS X570 XTREME have the edge?
Of course, today marks the launch of dozens of X570 motherboards, along side the brand new 7nm AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs, and even the 7nm Radeon RX graphics cards. So yes, I am taking tomorrow off of work! But I digress, as the AORUS X570 XTREME is more than exciting enough to work this weekend. Featuring a stunning 16 Phases Infineon Digital VRM setup, with their massive fins-array heatsink design and a NanoCarbon Baseplate. This motherboard takes cooling and overclocking extremely seriously.
One of the biggest and most impressive features of this motherboard is the X570 chipsets active fan. Every other X570 motherboard has one, but this one doesn’t! They’ve compensated by turning the entire motherboard into a massive heatsink, and that means pure silence and bliss from the AORUS X570 XTREME.
Of course, it’s got plenty of other flagship worthy features too. 3 x PCIe 4.0 full-size lanes, as well as 3 x Gen4 M.2 mounts for ultra-fast storage. Networking gets a boost too, with 10GbE LAN and 1GbE LAN and WiFi 6 as standard. If that’s not enough for you, you’ll find incredible ESS Sabre HiFi audio, RGB Fan commander, RGB Fusion 2, and a plethora of USB and SATA connectivity options too… Excited now? You should be.
