Have you been hoping for more motherboards, like our ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII DARK HERO? ASUS ROG has you covered with more motherboards coming in Q3 featuring a passively cooled chipset. Stay tuned!
Actively cooled chipset vs a passively cooled chipset
More details to come soon. Stay tuned and consider checking out our PCDIY Facebook Group for the most up-to-date information. You can also follow our ASUS social media channels for more information.
I'd prefer you guys to focus on getting the AGESA 188.8.131.52 BIOSes out of beta. It's been about a month and a half now.ID: gyyq850
Qualification and validation take time, especially for AEGSA based updates. This is noted in post notices regarding BETA to formal release timeline. As we are also collecting feedback in relation to end-user experience and operation with this firmware this can also lengthen the timeline. Stay tuned for updates regarding the transition from a BETA to a formal release.ID: gyyvw2f
If you can please pass this along to the bios team - would be nice to get even a beta 184.108.40.206 for B450/X470 - it's been a month since B550/X570 got them.ID: gyznqr7
Still having USB errors with Lian Li fans which keep disconnecting. And the passively cooled chipset isn't enough for two nvmes and a 30 series GPU. I see it sometimes getting 80c+.ID: gyyn5n4
I fully agree! Probably the most important bios update of the all, and they're giving themselves some extra sweet time to finally release it.
At this point, I'm expecting pretty much perfection i.e. no bugs at all.ID: gyztplp
considering how asus support works, you won't get any decent updates after a new product is released.
Asus knows about some bug on the crosshair vi that was fixed in vii, but never backported it to the vi, even though the vi still got updates after the fix. They're not getting any more purchases from me, until that is addressed.ID: gyyo4h6
You do realize that there are multiple departments at AMD, right?ID: gyyqh1j
Yes, and the AMD rep that posted this "news" also posts about BIOS updates. So I am letting the correct person know. You do realize that, right?
People for some reason want passive cooling, but I have never heard the fan on my crosshair viii hero wifi. I so wanted to hold out for a dark hero but the amount of time it took to come out was crazy so I gave up and bought the cheaper Crosshair.ID: gyzb0xo
They shouldn't turn on unless it gets pretty warm and I have no idea about the threshold. I am sensitive to pitch so I hate the possibility of a small fan like that kicking on. There hasn't been a ton of info I've seen about it other than FAN BADID: gyzilkt
Yea i think a lot of people get annoyed at the motherboard fan for no reason 99% of people outright wont notice it day to dayID: gyz0dv6
The fan on my board (X570 TOMAHAWK) doesn't even turn on. It is supposed to start at 69°C but the chipset is always in the 55-60°C range.
Those who desperately want passive cooling problably have a sealed case with a terrible airflow.ID: gyzqkac
But if a passive heatsink can accomplish the same thing, that's always preferable. Plus do you think if they have such terrible airflow that a passive cooler would be a better solution? I don't think that's why people want a passive cooler.ID: gyz5uwt
Prime x570-P. My monitor shows 1.5k RPM at 59c.ID: gz015n8
Same with my x570 tomahawk, I think the only time the chipset fan automatically turned on is when I had it bios updated with bios flashback (no cpu or ram, just power). I have numerous USB devices and 2 x NVME SSDsID: gyz7mqd
Tell me, is there any x570 board that uses anything resembling a standard fan that I can buy on the open market to replace it?ID: gyzyo9i
I got mine fairly quickly through cdw, backordered for a month.
No more asus motherboards for me. Crosshair VI owner here...you might know the reason. Your BIOS update speed is also not worthy of the prices you ask for high-end boards.ID: gyzi9vl
I’ve had crosshair VI, VII, and VII hero boards and haven’t ever had a problem. I like how fast they usually are to put out fixes.ID: gyzwk0f
I don't feel like spending outrageous amounts of money every 2 years on a mobo just to havesupport die as quickly as cheaper alternatives.
I'm hoping that maybe a Crosshair VIII Gene comes out. I don't necessarily have high hopes for it actually coming, but I'm just a fan of mATX boards.ID: gyyqcxu
No mATX updates are planned. If looking for a modern mATX AM4 option your best choice currently is B550.ID: gyyz4ou
I’m assuming no itx/mini dtx refresh then?
Is that the only change?
How much of a difference is there between passive and active cooling? Is it significant in any way?
What would the differences be? I don’t understand why you would need more choices.
Just bought a Taichi Razer, got anything better than that?
ASUS: "That's it, that all we changed, +$200 to the original price".
