Very solid construction. It's not a flashy board, which is fine by me. I like the large number of USB ports. I wanted a Gigabyte because I'm familiar with their BIOS arrangement. The Bios is much enhanced over my last one. CPU runs cool out of the box. I like the NVME EZ mounting clips, they're easier than screws.
Works as expected. Paired with a 7600x. I installed the ram in A1, B1 slots at first which caused an issue but after reading the manual it says to put dial memory slots in A2, B2 slots and it booted fine.
- PCI 5 support - WIFI expandable
Cheaper than other x boards
usb 4 header, decent bios, works as expected loads of nvme drive slots onboard wifi 6
Several high quality USB controllers built into the board. Two GL852 and one ASM1074. The downside is that two of the controllers(one GL852 and ASM1074) which control eight USB ports in total are routed to the front panel headers. My computer's case doesn't have 8 front panel USB ports so I had to buy little adapters to convert the front panel headers and actually use the ports coming from these controllers. Both the GL852 and ASM1074 have multi-TT, or multiple transaction translators. So for USB 2.0 devices you get a dedicated transaction translator for every single device- even if they are all connected to the same USB controller. Multi-TT is very important for devices that use the USB 2.0 protocol. This completely solves the problem of needing to buy PCIe USB expanders for USB devices that experience conflict, latency, noise, and disconnect on single transaction translator controllers. Single-TT controllers are cheap to make and widespread, so it is impressive that Asrock used Multi-TT controllers for all three USB controllers. The engineers at Asrock are smart. This is the perfect motherboard for Virtual Reality setups that have full body tracking or multiple VR accessories. This is the perfect motherboard for musicians and professionals with multiple audio devices of different varieties. This is the perfect motherboard for all people who have modern setups with several USB devices of mixed 2.0 and 3.0 protocols. It is perfect for streamers as well since they tend to be a mix of all of these things. Refer to the motherboard manual to see the block diagram and how the ports are wired to find the multi-TT USB ports.
-Good looking board -lots of M.2 options -wide range of DDR5 support though XMP 3.0 or AMD Expo -Good support for future GPUs
- Amazing aesthetics! - Reasonable price for the features you get - Layout is easy to understand
Good documentation. Easy to install memory, CPU, graphics card Well-labeled for connecting everything. Mounts easily in case.
