    Very good reviews as to build quality. This is way overkill for me as I won't be overclocking the CPU or memory past what XMP does, but wanted it future proof. Who knows. Something may come out that I want that can use the PCIe 4.0 slot. I used the bios updater built into the IO. So easy to use.

    Pictures do not do this MB justice to how beautiful it is. Going through the BIOS is easy enough. OC Tweaker app in the bios is very easy to navigate. Updating the BIOS as soon as i could and this thing has not failed me yet.

    There was some fuss about the reliability and design of this board but no issue so far. The most notable one is the USB-C connector placement. I believe that the board I got has a newer design revision so you don't have that interference with the GPU.

    The motherboard looks remarkable in a white case with its black PCB and subtle design. As a bonus, saving a PCI slot with integrated Wi-Fi is highly welcomed. The only issue I found was the lack of documentation surrounding the top M.2 slot — it shares a screw with the armour.

    Great motherboard overall, it is really good looking and has all the bells and whistles you could want! Some negatives: the usb 3.2 gen 2 header cannot be occupied when the graphics card is installed; Asrock did send a right angle adapter for free after contacting them though. Secondly the lights are not too good at reproducing color and the chipset fan curve should be adjusted through the A-tuning software.

    Despite x570 boards being outrageously priced... feature-wise, this motherboard is great compared to other x570 boards in the $250-$300 price range.

    I decided on the x570 chipset over the b450 simply because I wanted to future-proof my build a bit. I didn't want to have to replace the entire computer in 3 years. I reasoned that the x570 had a better chance of meeting my needs for longer.

    I almost bought the MSI x570 Unify, but this went on a big sale right when the Unify came out - and reviews on the Taichi were unanimously positive.

    There is one flaw with the Taichi that knocked off two whole stars for me - the Southbridge chipset cooling solution on the board. The chipset fan sits directly behind the GPU in the top PCIe slot. Not only is this choking the airflow to the chip a ton, but the GPU is blowing it's warm exhaust directly at the chipset. What's more.... the fan assembly is very poorly designed. It sits super far away from the chipset itself with a THICK thermal pad between the two. The chipset is by FAR the hottest thing in the case. Going all the way up to 80 degrees under load. Not cool! I did end up cooling the chipset significantly after some pretty heavy modding of the chipset fan & heatsink internals. It took me a few tries though. Here's an image album of the process:

    I regret not getting the MSI Unify a little bit... but who knows - maybe the Unify would have had it's own problems?

    Seems to run great but the hum/whine when the motherboard fan spins up is too noticeable for my liking. The Asrock RBG program doesn't seem to have a way to have a set color for all sections of the board and uses circles/sliders instead of numbers so if you want to turn on the RGB its difficult to match everything.

    Beautiful board, the M.2 armour is annoying and can be finnicky to work with. Doesn't provide alot of clearance for a top radiator.

    Makes up for it's bads with a lovely look, numerous features and ability to hold my GPU without sag.

    I enjoy this MB a great deal; however, I do have a few gripes. The BIOS kind-of sucks. It reminds me of older builds, using the old BIOS look. Which is totally fine, cause I grew up overclocking in 'em, but for those who prefer the new UEFI layouts of modern BIOS, you won't find it on this board. With that said, this board OC's like a champion! I've yet had any problem OC'ing my CPU, Memory, or GPU. VRams are great. Volts are great. Another gripe I'd add is the fact that the RGB stays on even after you shut down your computer. I have to manually turn off my PSU for the RGB to shut off.

    My experience with this board has been a bit hit-or-miss, but definitely a lot more hits than misses. This board is definitely the best value in x570 boards as far as features and performance per dollar. The BIOS is a little wonky, but the most recent update made tons of improvements. Sometimes I have to redo my fan curves though. This wouldn't be as much of an issue if the chipset fan wasn't failing. But it doesn't need to be on if the chipset is under 70C, which it has not hit even under sustained system load in my experience. So I just keep it off under 70C and never hear it, but when the board loses my fan curves the chipset fan sounds pretty annoying until I fix the curves again. Even with all that, the sheer value of this board keeps my review at a low four stars.
