Gigabyte X570 UD Ryzen AM4 ATX Motherboard $207.20 Shipped @ Harris Technology via Amazon AU

130

Looking around for a new motherboard and came across this board which has some 4.5 stars but mixed reviews. I'm not too savvy, so would love to hear what the community think about this mobo. Lowest price according to 3xC:

  • from memory the UD has a very basic VRM so I wouldn't be throwing top end CPUs in it then expecting to overclock. https://youtu.be/ti38JS8RuPU?t=1698

    • This will provide the 95A TDC current and 140A EDC current on the 12 and 16 core CPUs no problem. Remember the 140A draw is only for a relatively short amount of time before it settles back into the 95A draw. (based on spec) Even if you increase EDC you'll still be fine on this board, it'll just get hotter.

      A big static OC on 12 and 16 CPUs probably isn't advisable without reasonable VRM cooling. I've also seen gigabyte limit TDC on some boards to 114A to protect VRM, I wouldn't be surprise if that this board has the same limit.

      A better 'budget' board is the prime x570-p for about $50 more. It has an fmax enhancer which essentially deletes the current limits from the boost equation. I'd also TDC at 150A+ without concern on passive VRM cooling.

  • Not a bad price. I paid $315 for the Asus X570-tuf-pro-wifi 6 from Amazon US(free shipping) and that was a steal.

    • Did your board come in the original mobo packaging without any bubble wrap etc? That's how mine arrived although didn't see any damage. There was also no manufacturer seal on the box but had Amazon's tape seal. Not sure if this is the norm.

      • Still waiting for delivery, will let you know.

      • Mine came with no wrapping either. I assume it probably gets packaged appropriately for US -> AU, and then delivered loose for the last mile. Some dings on the box but mine was otherwise OK.

        • That sounds plausible because strangely there were no postage stickers for US > AU on the mobo box.

  • Good board. I'm running an 1700 on it with a f11 bios

  • I saw this earlier too but port selection is extremely limited and only 1 nvme slot so probably not worth it. $200 would be better spent on a decent B550 board instead.

    • Agree the decent b550 boards seem to be better value than the cheapest x570's

  • TBH locally it's only around $230 but if you don't mind the absolute basic X570, then go for it.
    For example, looking at the picture, it doesn't even have an internal or external type-c connection. There's also 1 m.2 SSD slot only which is quite rare.

  • It isn't those high spec/performance one and might have some overheating issue if you do overclock (asus prime-p was the safest choice at this price range while it's been oos for a while). However at this price it would beat most of b550s

  • Only 1 NVMe M2 connector, ASUS PRIME X570-P has 2 but cost 40 bucks more

  • Thanks for the feedback everyone, I’ll probably start looking for a B550 board.
