The X570 Aorus Master is still a very respectable motherboard, with just the right features-to-cost ratio. When you consider the vast available pool of DDR4 RAM and Ryzen CPUs that are now heavily discounted, it’s still a sensible choice. Keep in mind that later this year there will be new chipset upgrades for AMD’s Ryzen and X570 will be surpassed.

The X570 Godlike does have a chipset fan behind a grill, which can be RPM controlled. It’s positioned lower on the motherboard, so thick graphics cards are less likely to obstruct the airflow. Below it you’ll also find physical buttons for reset and power, which look great and are highly functional design elements.

The ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme features a powerful 18+2 VRM solution with 20 Texas Instruments power stages rated for 90 A. The jaw-dropping specifications do not stop there, either. Built upon ASUS’s excellent BIOS, the included EZ mode provides an optimal, stress-free experience for configuring the system. The Crosshair VIII Extreme also offers great connectivity with not only WiFi 6E and 10 Gb/s Ethernet, but Thunderbolt 4, and five M.2 slots round out this list. There is just too much to list in a single paragraph. ASUS has even outdone themselves and placed a 2″ LiveDash OLED screen on the motherboard.

EVGA X570 DARK – Overclocking

Before going into detail about the X570 DARK, let’s take a look back at the “DARK” series. It was in 2013 that EVGA offered the first model, the X79 DARK, which put EVGA back on the right track after disappointing models and above all that lacked follow-up in terms of BIOS. This series will be spearheaded and designed largely by Vince, aka KingPiN, and TiN. Since 2013, EVGA regularly offers unique models that are part of this series. The latest is the EVGA Z690 DARK.

EVGA X570 DARK – NikKTech

When I checked the early pictures and specifications for the X570 DARK many months ago I have to admit that it felt just as good as the Z590 DARK model. Unfortunately, however unlike Intel motherboards AMD has chosen to “link” RAM performance directly with their CPUs and so anything over 4GHz needs way too much tweaking to use (both in terms of voltage and timings). Curiosity got the better of me and so i did try with the Faye 16GB 5GHz kit by Neo Forza but even 4400-4600MHz was very hard to achieve (again, much higher voltage needed with higher CAS latency – was unable to go any higher – didn’t push the motherboard a lot however).
