ASUS Prime X470-PRO Motherboard Review

When it comes to ASUS motherboards you have quite a lot of choices, many users opt for their Republic of Gamers boards, but their Prime line is actually quite good. We've used a "Prime" motherboard as our baseline board for processor testing for both Intel and AMD for the past couple of years. These boards might not have all of the flash that the ROG series does, but they are extremely reliable and are still packed with features. For the Ryzen refresh the main "Prime" board from ASUS is their Prime X470-PRO. This board features a slick design with silver heatsinks and an integrated M.2 cooler as well. You also have support for DDR4 3466 MHz memory, USB 3.1, dual M.2 slots, and even some RGB lighting. Is this the board you need for your Ryzen build? Read on as we find out!
