What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS TUF X470-PLUS GAMING ATX Motherboard
  • Excellent motherboard for the most part. Good support processors.
  • Really nice for this. Good form factor.
  • This is a great main board. ATX form is amazing.
  • I love this motherboard. Good support processors list.
  • The board is absolutely beast and I love it. Form factor is awesome.
ASUS PRIME X470-PRO Motherboard
  • This was used in my first ever build. It's working like a champ no issues as of this moment (knock on wood) the lighting is nice, but as mentioned in previous comments can be blocked depending on what the GPU size is.
  • Great board looks good in my Ryzen build.
  • Overall, the motherboard performs exactly as expected. The onboard sound card it provides is great.
  • Of course substance is the main thing with tech but style does make a huge difference as well. Paired up inside my white Corsair carbide 275r case this looks amazing.
  • Very good quality and nice led's but took a while for the aura software to work properly. Good for its price and works well with the new 2000 series ryzen cpus.

What customers say about "Memory"
ASUS TUF X470-PLUS GAMING ATX Motherboard
  • You have to enable XMP and DOCP profile from the bios before using higher memory clocks, this is normal and very common.
  • Aesthetically, it's nice looking and seems sturdy. Good memory speed.
  • This was a great motherboard for the price. A lot of memory slots.
  • Not as good for overclocking and especially has issues with memory speeds over 2933.
  • Not for overclocking, especially memory.
ASUS PRIME X470-PRO Motherboard
  • It does what it says, I overclocked to 3.9Ghz without issue with a Ryzen 2600 and also overclocked my ram to 2933Mhz from 2666Mhz (Vengeance RGB)
  • I use this with a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and works perfectly. Have ram running at 3200mhz with no issues.
  • The one I received had a fault on 2 of its memory slots which caused the memory to run slowly so had to be returned but its replacement is working correctly.
  • It is a good motherboard and look good, but, i returned to get the strix. The prime couldnt get my ram above 2666 the strix got it to 2933 on my 3000 kit.
  • The only down side I would have with this board is that you have no post code for trouble shooting which would have help when I had faulty RAM and was trouble shooting the issue for no post.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS TUF X470-PLUS GAMING ATX Motherboard
  • I was expecting the BIOS and motherboard connection part to be a Hell for me. I was wrong. Easy connect and install.
  • Bought one of these. Good and easy connect.
  • Works as advertised. I like this easy connectivity.
  • This motherboard looks and feels durable but like most others are saying it does lack a lot of connectivity.
  • One minor nitpick is that the DVI port is very close to two of the USB ports.
ASUS PRIME X470-PRO Motherboard
  • The PCIE slot for the GPU is plastic so it isn’t as strong, so I recommend removing the GPU if you’re going to transport it.
  • Everything is connected and works as it should. I am confident in my purchase.
  • I found it heavy and a little cumbersome. But saying that it took the weight really easily,i put more on it than they said with no problem.
  • My only complaint is the M2 heatsink seems a bit unnecessary.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS TUF X470-PLUS GAMING ATX Motherboard
  • The BIOS is extremely useful and feature rich.
  • Seems like a feature rich very good motherboard.
  • The bios is very user friendly and the update utility is a great feature.
  • Full of features, and capabilities yet affordable and exceeding.
  • Good features & tough enough for any gamer.
ASUS PRIME X470-PRO Motherboard
  • The RGB lighting on the motherboard looks amazing but the bottom right lighting can be blocked depending on the size of your GPU.
  • The lights look great and really do create a nice ambience on my desk and there are so many customisation options with the included software too.
  • The software included to control the fans and the lighting is fantastic and is very simple to use.
  • It has nice features in the bios and easy to configure. A nice feature is to be able to upgrade the BIOS directly from the internet even before you boot into an O/S.
  • Another thing I disliked about the motherboard was the areas I needed to peel off the plastic so that it wouldn’t melt.
