Rare sight to find a good price for an ITX motherboard especially an X570 chipset
When it comes to ITX, why not get the B550i strix instead? Curious! :)
B550i Strix is superior as it has USB-C front I/O port, if you need that.
$345 :) .. i got a 5600+Gigabyte B550M Gaming Motherboard for the price of this motherboard alone and B550 vs X570 is meh … a few extra PCIE4 slots that are not really a thing on ITX anyways
thats a nice deal, can you show us it in your itx case?
Fits in the nr200 apparently. There is 2 sizes to matx, 24 and 20.
Where did you get the deal from?
Just one pita thing about this mobo you should know before buying - the front panel audio - sits under that ROG strix shroud - so you need to remove 4 screws to access it and it requires a miniature connector - the adapter comes in the box.
Price is a bit meh. This Asrock X570 for $159 with TB3 support was great! It's the only option out there if you want Thunderbolt in an ITX form-factor for AMD builds.
I had no need for one at the time but the price was too compelling so I picked it up anyway.. ended up finding a use for it shortly after. So glad I did!
I got that deal.
Board was (profanity). Had to return for refund. Massive waste of my time. Heard about many others having issues with the board too
Oh yeah, there were definitely BIOS issues.. default out-of-the-box values caused my build to randomly hang after booting into Windows.
It took a good week to get to the bottom of it but was resolved in the end. Price may not have been worth the effort for some.
Just keep in mind that the AM4 socket is at its end of life!
I would see this as more of a pro than a con.
You'd be buying into a mature, stable platform, and not having to deal with a fresh set of issues as an early adopter of a new platform.
Rather than fork out a wad of cash for the latest and greatest every 2-3 years, buy last year's tech for half the price, and put the money saved towards your next build. Whatever you build now will be "end of life" in 6 month's time.
Oh yeap definitely, all i was trying to say is that you won't be able to upgrade in the future.
Be ware, no front USB-C
As some who owned this exact motherboard go for the Asus Strix B550-I it's cheaper has front Type C IO and for the very few if any that has a RTX 3090 and wanted to use an active backplate it fit's it unlike the X570-i
