“If you’re in the market for building a new AMD Ryzen themed system and want a solid board with tons of useful features at a great price, then the X370-F STRIX sets the bar for the AM4 platform for all-around performing, well designed and great value boards!”
“This ASUS X370 motherboard is arguably the ideal sweet spot between price and performance, giving the full X370 feature set at a price that is in range for Ryzen 7 buyers - oh and did I mention, it looks great too!”
“Packed full of quality features, the ROG STRIX X370-F gaming can give you an incredible foundation for a gaming system.”
“All in all our afternoon with the Strix-F has actually left us wishing we had more time but the fact that it hasn't fought us in any way and really did make our lives easy to get all of the memory tested and overclocked quickly just goes to show how great this board really is. Price wise its going to be around the £180 mark if you look around so it sits really well in-between the Prime boards and the (current) flagship Crosshair VI Hero. We had a chat in the office and we all agreed with the features plus the zero hassle performance and easy overclocking that the Asus ROG Strix-F was thoroughly deserving of the OC3D Enthusiast Award.”
Ook ASUS sleept de hoogste award binnen met zijn Crosshair VI Hero. Het aantal USB-poorten van de Hero reikt verder dan het plafond, terwijl we ook zeer te spreken zijn over de uitstekende stroomvoorziening en sublieme audio.
ASUS repeatedly creates Ryzen motherboards that make you want to build an AM4 system immediately. It is undoubtedly the manufacturer who took AMD's new platform seriously from the very beginning , and they clearly take the lead.
