Great value

ASUS TUF Gaming X570-PRO (WiFi 6) AMD AM4 (3rd Gen Ryzen ATX Gaming Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, 2.5Gb LAN, BIOS Flashback, HDMI, USB 3.2 Gen 2, Addressable Gen 2 RGB Header and Aura Sync)
ASUS TUF Gaming X570-PRO (WiFi 6) AMD AM4 (3rd Gen Ryzen ATX Gaming Motherboard (PCIe 4.0, 2.5Gb LAN, BIOS Flashback, HDMI, USB 3.2 Gen 2, Addressable Gen 2 RGB Header and Aura Sync)

Pros: - 5v DRGB for sick RGB 2.0 - No issues with Intel NIC after installing the driver (using Cat7E - SSTP rated for cabling). - No issues with the face plate covering the button as other users reported. - No issues with slow mouse in bios as other users reported (800 dpi mouse) - Has BIOS update available for USB drop out fix on 5000 series ryzen processors - Drivers installed seamlessly, which was surprising as someone coming from decades of other brands. Its hard to know when the install completes though, so silent.

Cons: Audio solution is very lackluster. Certainly not powerful enough to drive my 250ohm DT 990 Pros. I did not expect otherwise, but if you are looking at this board and have a similar mid range headphone with high impedance you will 100% require an external DAC/AMP. If you're an audio person this is probably no surprise to you - but for those who are not keep this in mind when purchasing. Coming from a series of gigabyte boards I was used to having a reasonable solution built in but ordered a DAC/AMP knowing I would need it. I was proved correct - bass is flat. Required BIOS update for a 5950x, flashback worked great so this is a minor inconvenience.

Overall Review: Its got everything you need except good headphone audio. A winner for budget picks if you want native DRGB support and better LAN.

Immense value and performance with a stellar design

Pros: Did someone say D-RGB? It looks amazing on my asus DRGB compatible board. The sheet panel on the back of the case installs easily* *not sure how they fixed this INDUSTRY WIDE case problem but its been a pet peev of mine for decades. They normally are always warped out of factory and never install right. This one just slides right without the fidgeting. Gamers Nexus mentioned this in their review and I am shocked at how much better this case does rear panel installation. Every single one of my other cases have bent/warped back panels/pins that never line up.

Cons: Compatibility list from manufacturer not quite up to date / complete. Made finding a compatible X570 board that supported DRGB challenging. This also includes product descriptions for compatible addins, such as another HDD caddy. The HDD caddy page from the same manufacturer does not list this case in compatibility - but the case comes with two of them with support for more! Fan wiring could use some more easily available instructions. Online forums are filled with 'how the hell do I wire this DRGB for X motherboard'. I have an electrical and computer engineering degree and it was still a pain in the rear to figure it all out in front of me let alone in the shopping cart.

Overall Review: Its a stellar case. It is clear the manufacturer took great care even with the most minute details. The DRGB fans look wild being driven by my compatible ASUS x570 DRGB board.
