Plus other random weirdness with PWM hubs, Asus Aura quirks, etc. As it stands *now*, my CH7 is decent, but it took a while getting there. The Aorus Master and Aorus Xtreme just never had any of that odd behavior. Everything just worked from day one. The only odd thing I saw with Gigabyte was an RGB Fusion update that clobbered my G.Skill TridentZ Royal RAM for some reason, but uninstalling and re-installing the newest version solved that pretty quick.

Prior to those two boards, I never had much experience with Gigabyte, but they've won me over with this AMD stuff (X570 / X399).
That's intereting, since I can say for myself personally that ASUS AURA has not been the most stable software out there. I had rather much issues with my previous G.Skill Trident Z RGB memory often not syncing up, so had to restart my PC several times before it would actually enable on all dimms. All of the dimms did work, but one or two casually didn't get enabled in with the set colour in the software.

This has happened several times with Corsair stuff as well, through their iCUE software. Now, I'm not sure if it has anything to do with iCUE itself or ASUS boards. But considering ASUS and Corsair now have entered partnership regarding enabling their products into one software, hopefully it will be smoother in the future.

I to had the Crosshair VI (great board out of the box memory compatibility issues aside) and the Crosshair VII (I did try my 3900X with that initially, HUGE MISTAKE) before opting for the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master (based on rave reviews across the board); a close friend went with the Crosshair VIII and had nothing but ball ache BIOS issues for months after release, my Aorus Master however worked flawlessly from day one with my 3900X (and has continued to do so right up until this day with the current F11 BIOS version)

That is a very tidy looking board.


On the topic of ASUS motherboards for Zen, I too have had many problems. To this day I still have bootloop issues.

I had problems early on with the Hero. Newer BIOS' have fixed that though.

I had a bootloop issues on my current gigabyte board for a while, it would boot fine and then decide to bootloop for no reason switching it off at the wall then back on again solved it for a while, latest bios fixed it

I haven't tried a new BIOS in a while, but I've tried updating it multiple times over the last three years. There does seem to be a newer BIOS for the Hero though that I could try.
