Asrock X370 Taichi Motherboard Review

Posted March 2, 2018 by Josh Jackson in CPU & Motherboards

Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 
Price at time of Review: $179.99 on Newegg
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Very Stable (At least for the reviewer), Nice Aesthetics, Great Audio Quality, Solid CPU Overclocking, Lots of Features for a Great Price
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Manual DRAM overclocking is difficult, RGB lighting is a bit anemic compared to other boards
 
BOTTOM LINE:
Based on performance alone, Asrock would have a compelling option. Once price is factored in, the Taichi is by far the best value in the X370 landscape and that's even before you consider the $20-$30 rebates that are frequently offered.

Packaging and Accessories

Asrock definitely scores high marks for presentation, but there’s nothing new or special going on with the packaging. The important point is that the motherboard is nicely protected inside.

The accessories are the first thing you see once you open the lid. It’s a slight change of pace, but I wouldn’t say it has any inherent benefits or drawbacks. Looks like we still have a relic of a lost era included in these accessories. I don’t have optical disk drives anymore, but maybe some of you do. The usual SATA cables, SLI bridge and manual are present, but WiFi antennas are not an everyday occurrence.
