Most Favorable Review

Best motherboard I have ever owned!

ASRock X370 Taichi AM4 AMD Promontory X370 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X370 Taichi AM4 AMD Promontory X370 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - I really like the look of the board - High quality components - Very impressive power delivery with 16 phase VRM - Has my 1700X stable at 4Ghz on 1.35 volts - Premium specs for less $ than other brands - Got it for $189.99 on launch day

Cons: - None other than some growing pains that come with early adoption of new hardware

Overall Review: I was lucky enough to order this board on launch day before they sold out. I held off on writing a review because the board was only able to boot with my RAM set at 2400Mhz with earlier bios versions. Thankfully ASRock has been steadily releasing bios updates and with the beta bios version 1.94A that released today, I am finally able to use the XMP settings and run my RAM at 2933Mhz.

Great Card!

Pros: -Good Cooler -Premium build quality -Great FPS -Able to overclock the memory to over 4.4Ghz -EVGA warranty and support

Cons: - I was not able to overclock the core as much as many other reviews. 2Ghz is about as high as my card will boost before becoming unstable in certain games and benchmarks.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this card to anyone looking to game at 1440p or 1080p. Unfortunately I didn't win the silicon lottery, but I was still able to add a slight overclock to the core and the card still boosts much higher than advertised.
