This is around ASUS TUF X570 (no WiFi) pricing, considering MIR value. The GB Aorus Elite comes with 10 USB-A ports on the back and Intel GbE, vs the ASUS' fewer USB ports (though with one USB-C) and Realtek LAN.

Looks like a pretty good value. In comparison, I just picked up an Asus X570-Pro for $193 on Amazon which is ~$60 less than MSRP. Looks like the low and mid range boards are dropping in price closer to "normal" pricing. The high end is still expensive and pricing hasn't really moved much.

damn good deal for this board. if you're willing to deal with rebate crap. even without the rebate if you're on the fence about x570 this would be the board to go for under 200 bucks. have had zero issues with my elite.

It is a good deal before the rebate.

Now that is a good deal for a X570. Only thing that worries me is the chipset cooler fan.

board has a silent mode as long as you're not on the 1.0.0.2 bios and literally never turns on during normal use. only time is during boot and even then with it in a case you'll barely hear it for the 2 seconds it's running.

True..... I have the Asus Tuf X570 and can’t hear the fan on the MB when surfing or doing work. I do wear my headphones when gaming so it’s a non issue for me. That’s with running a water loop.

you aint getting that 20 mir theyll find an excuse
I have never failed to get a rebate. There are simple instructions, all you have to do is follow them.
Even after not receiving a $30 gift card I simply followed the the instuctions and they sent me out a new one.

Make copies of EVERYTHING. Document the process and spend that sweet sweet rebate cash.

No USB C header on this motherboard on the back I/O plate, so if your case doesn't have USB C - then -- you don't have USB C.

:(

Otherwise looked good.

Yeah they put highend Vrm and phases etc,
And removed the bells and whistles and get it at this price point, this board has better Vrm the the x470 gaming 7

Still has a LOT of the bells and whistles. It's really only missing the USB C from the list of bullets I wanted.

VRM rating comes from here: (spoiler tag for length)

if you're talking about destiny 2 or RDR2 then yes all x570 boards need it but you should be running agesa 1.0.0.4b bios anyways.

Yeah should always update bios, nothing wrong with being a little cautious and waiting and reading feedback, but once it’s confirmed and good, always update

Eh, I'm still going to go by the old maxim, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
