    I was long time asus mb supporter in our company but after few dead x99 based motherboards im stuck to supermicro and didn't regret. Too much fancy features on asus's mbs which are potential point of failure. Esspesialy OC shits.

    Any chance of an actual (Linux-focussed) X570 mainboard review? Not benchmarks (as long as something isn't broken, they all should be in the same ballpark), not features (see manufacturer's website), but general usability. Things like: Is the fan control (including chipset fan) provided by the UEFI first class? Does hardware monitoring work? What do the IOMMU groups look like?

    I can't believe a board that costs so much wouldn't use a heatpipe like higher-end boards did in the days of nForce 4/5 chipsets. They could have at least used a bigger (and thus, slower/quieter) fan. A 40mm fan is going to easily be the noisiest thing in most systems, especially in these days of better stock heatsinks and silent SSD's.
    The loudest components are often the GPUs (coil whine), HDDs and fans, but you can't get away with having no fans unless you have massive coolers.

    It's not spinning at any appreciable speed. It's there to cool 15w, not 100w.
