You spoil us sir !

I like it. It is kinda a cross between the X99 Deluxe and the new shaped Nvidia coolers.

I'm very excited to see more motherboard reviews, but I do hope they are staggered to allow for BIOS and driver maturity from each developer. If all BIOS' and drivers suffered from similar issues then all results will be similar and may not reflect the future of Ryzen.

Hey Guvnor I have enjoyed your informative reviews for years now and I always leave here more informed. Thanks for that. I am for the first time since 2005 taking the plunge into AMD territory. I have chosen this board to insert my 1700x into. I'll be putting this baby together on Tuesday and thanks to this review I feel a lot more confident about it. Looking forward to those F3f bios you mention that you'd post. Thanks again.

I'd like to see more info on the temp sensor that Tom barely mentioned. That is IMPORTANT for us water coolers. If this is the same setup on the GB Z270 Gaming 5, it means us water fowl can set up fan curves based on liquid temps, and that has been either difficult or expensive up until now (eg using an Aquero fan controller, which is bloody expensive). I'm shocked TTL didn't even MENTION this, but I suspect the poor lad has been overworked with all this Ryzen stuff. More info is needed on that front!

Is styling the only difference between the GA-AX370-Gaming 5 and GA-AX370-Gaming-K7 ?

I doubt it. The 7 will probably have far stronger phases and fets.

K = Black

Gaming = white


numbers work their way up but the K's and G's are basically the same

Yeah, it's confusing.
I was comparing the specs at the Gigabyte website and they are identical. The only difference seems to be styling (colour and LED shapes) although one is "5" and the other is "7".
The "K7" is €16 more expensive here. Which adds to the confusion.

Yeah Asus are doing something similar with E? and F? something like that. One has more USB ports though.
