I had a Gigabyte Gaming 7 WiFi (X470) as my last MB, due to a broken LAN-port the seller is replacing it on warranty. As he dose not have any in stock atm he decided to refund me. Now since then there are a lot of new boards available (also X570 boards) and I was never really satisfied with Gigabyte to be honest. I have a long tradition of using ASUS and the Gaming 7 WiFi was my first Gigabyte board. I don’t like the Gigabyte BIOS and the features the board has are minimal. I just baucht it because I am planing to upgrade to zen 2 in the future and this board seemed better than the available, similar priced ASUS boards.
So I don’t miss it really.
But now I have to start my search again to get another board.
What I must need:
- AM4 socket (down the road I will probably get the 12 core Ryzen)
- Overclocking capability (nothing crazy, somewhere of 0.1 to 0.3 GHz)
- M.2 NVMe slot
- 4 RAM slots
- 6 SATA ports
- 2 PCIe ports
Nice to have:
- additional M.2 slot
- additional 2 (total 8) SATA ports
- additional 1 (total 3) PCIe ports
- White or black colour
my budget is about 250$ i am always open minded to all brands but I would prefer ASUS ASROCK or MSI as I have worked on those boards for friends. It dose not have to be X570 but it should work with Zen 2 and it possible with Zen 3…
As always I will be buying from digitec.ch here I can even spend ~300 Fr.
Hope someone can help.
