Product on Review: ROG STRIX X370-F Gaming
Manufacturer & Sponsor: ASUS
Street Price: £189.99 GBP / $199 USD
Performance and style has been wrapped up and consolidated with the STRIX branding, which is now falling under the ROG umbrella. As expected, we get a visual feast of bold styling, with neutral toned chipset coolers, along with vibrant RGB LED lighting powered by the ASUS Aura software. Being based on the X370 chipset, the ROG STRIX X370-F Gaming supports both CrossfireX and SLI, and so it features two reinforced 'SafeSlots' to firmly hold your beefy graphics cards in place. There is support for 3200MHz dual channel DDR4 memory, and a NVMe M.2 slot for high-speed storage. Gamers will be happy to know that ASUS have used a low latency Intel I211-AT LAN chipset, which is supported by the GameFirst software, along with the LANGuard technology to protect the motherboard against any power surges. As an additional treat, ASUS have given gamers an exceptional onboard audio solution with their SupremeFX technology and the exclusive S1220A audio codec supported by the RC4580 and OPA1688 op-amps.
Coming in at around £190, it is priced significantly lower than the Crosshair VI Hero, and does away with various features that are more geared towards enthusiasts and pro-overclockers, giving gamers a more specialised motherboard catering more for their needs. Despite that, ASUS have implemented their exclusive technologies and a robust circuitry to enable gamers a stable overclocking experience, including a baseclock generator for total control.
