If I were giving out bonus points for how good an X470 motherboard could look, the Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi would be my absolute favourite AMD board around right now. It’s just a shame it doesn’t have the same level of Ryzen performance as its competitors...
You need the best CPU for gaming to squeeze into your new motherboard.
I mean, just look at it. There’s a mix of the aggressive, angular styling that you get from all Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers, but there’s something almost retro about the X470 Aorus I really dig. I think it’s mostly because of the chunky heatpipe connecting the two partially nude heatsinks arrayed around the AM4 CPU socket.
