from completed build Ryzen 7 3800X - Photo/Video Editor, Media Player, Casual Gaming Rig
I upgraded to this board from my original purchase which was an MSI X570 A PRO. The difference between the two is night and day, however you would expect this when you consider the Aorus was more than twice the price of the MSI. This Aorus board has received rave reviews and I'm certainly not disappointed with it. My overall build is bench marking better than it did with the MSI and VRM temps are better too which is nice.
I'll probably stick a 3900X or 3950X on it in a year or two once they're more readily available and prices settle down a bit and have no doubts the board will handle either chip without any issues.

5 stars for Gigabyte, however, probably 3 stars with AMD AGESA issues causing all sorts of buggy behavior with this new Zen2 architecture and X570 chipset.
The board itself is built beautifully. Love the minimal RGBs, the nice heatsinks and shields.

from completed build Q1 2020 Workstation ATX Build (3950x + 2080S @3440x1440 100Hz)
Dual BIOS makes the overclocking experience so much better. Fantastic VRMs. Great support for M.2 and Ryzen 3000. One thing that did bother me was a ringing small cooling fan that would quickly ramp up to a loud speed and plateau. This however was remedied by a new BIOS update. Now the board is silent.

from completed build Morningstar - light bringer
Let's face it. For the budget I had this one just seemed like a more positively reviewed motherboard than others with the same features. I was aiming for future proof. So far the motherboard has performed well in terms of performance in gaming, but it is probably best for those with a least a tiny bit of experience with building PCs. Had a few quirks with reboots and lagging, turned out it was just the crappy dell keyboard I had been using. New PC doesn't support my longer USB cable runs like it's predecessor build here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/WYsJ7P
LOVE the little PC I/O bracket that combines all LEDS and buttons into one group. Hoping we can get that standardized across the industry eventually as well.
I do think it could use another USB 2.0 header. Two units runs out quick without an adapter tucked away somewhere.

from completed build 2nd PC Build
Very clear manual, comes with lots of accessories, and is also a really good looking board. Zero issues, and BIOS was very clean and easy to use. Not entirely sure what the complaint about the BIOS being confusing was, simply putting the BIOS into easy mode (F2) puts basically everything you need right up on the screen. Also the chipset fan I've only heard when booting the PC and restarting, so no issue there.

One of if not THE best VRM and VRM heatsink under $400 price point - never seen temps higher than 45C. With new BIOS updates PCH fan is pretty quiet even in balance mode - you definitely can't hear it in closed case with other fans noises... Again PCH is cool enough - max seen temp was 59C. And the cherry on the cake is M.2 x3 slots (vs x2 on Asus C8H). Great motherboard in all aspects.
