I ended up going for this motherboard shortly after the Ryzen 3000 CPUs dropped. It's working well for me so far. My considerations were cost, PCIe16 slots and m.2 heatsink scheme. I wanted two PCIe16s so I could add in my SAS card, I wanted separate m.2 heatsinks that didn't require messing with the chipset heatsink, I also didn't need lots of SATA as I use two NVME drives and a bunch of SAS SSDs I acquired. No optical drive in this build either so presently not using any SATA ports.

Recently upgraded to a Ryzen 3700X cpu and needed a motherboard. After searching a lot I finally chose to Gigabyte Aorus Elite X570. First Gigabyte product I own. Not afraid of buying more from the Gigabyte brand in the future.

What made me buy this board over other products was the Intel lan, Realtek ALC1200 audio codec and also every review states that the board had good VRMs. Not that I'm a huge overclocker, but I chose good VRMs because of future expand-ability. I might get some better CPU with more cores and then need the extra power on the board.

It has been very easy to build the computer. Everything just worked. Put in DDR4 3200 CL14 ram, chose XMP in bios and it has been running without any hickups!

it is funny
"Elite was able to push our Ryzen 7 3700X to 4.16 GHz at 1.32V. Anything beyond this point yielded a near-instant stoppage of AIDA64’s stress test "

this cpu is 3.6gh -4.4 gh without overlocking:)

That is 4.4 GHz on ONE or TWO cores. The rest of the cores are running @ ~ 3.6-3.8 GHz.

The overclock in this review is 4.16 GHz on ALL cores.

It takes a hell of allot of power to push all cores to 4.16 GHz, vs. just 1 or 2 cores at 4.4 GHz.

That also takes more voltage, in turn creating more heat.

The benefit in this case for overclocking all cores to 4.16 GHz is, you get one hell of a multi threaded boost for any application that will use more than one or two cores.

Do you mean a higher Tier motherboard, would provide more power, thus providing better mult-thread perfomance? Thus maximizing potential of multicore processores, like 3900x/3950x?

You are right! Sorry.I am new on amd (ryzen 5 3600) from intel I5 3570k (z77) and from 3400mhz to 4200 all core (4 core) without + voltage or anything else.......just change the multiper.On 4300 just work 3 core and 4th core must put just 4200mhx.But i am sure + little voltage will fine.and more....
so amd is different:)
but still the best value....

check your configuration I have that board and that micro at 4.25 1.25v without problems

Wow, I must have bad luck. I have been building my own systems since 1996. Purchased the X570 Aorus Elite in Dec 2019. BIOS erased the partitions on 5 HHDs totaling 16TB. Returned for a replacement and new board wouldn't recognize any drives but one. Came with f4 BIOS, so I downloaded the f20 BIOS to flash. BIOS recognized the USB drive, but I couldn't save or load from it. Sometimes, while booting, the BIOS screen would come up without pressing the delete key and would do this several times before I finally got the OS to load. Had random system freeze ups that became more frequent. Ended up calling it a $200 loss and replaced it with a MSI MEG X570 Tomahawk WiFi and the system behaves well now. No more Gigabyte products for me.
