So I built a pc on the Gigabyte Aorus Elite X570, I’m mostly happy with it except for an oddity that it seems to reset bios settings if off for extended period of time. It’s also really sluggish when in the bios and sometimes has fits with my mouse (on a side note, why does a bios need mouse drivers anyway?). I need to break it open and check if the cmos battery is just bad or if its something else.
Now I built this box with the plan to build a second one part-for-part for my dad as his new workstation. We both thought the Elite was a good price point. Neither of us game hard (I play HBS Battletech and MC, we both play a little bit of Neverwinter Nights). We both really need workstations. (I’m a network tech for a university, he’s a retired network engineer who’s planning on doing contract/consultant work in the same field). So what I’m wondering is was the elite the right choice from a reliability point of view? Or was it perhaps better to go with the Master? Especially since he’s explained that he wants more ram (I built 32G, he wants a minimum of 64) and good VM support.
The feature list of the Elite is sufficient. I’m just wondering if my minor pains are a fluke, the Elite is a “get what you pay for” board in terms of QC?
