No Overclocking

Usually at this point we show you our CPUz results from our time overclocking. Given how well the 2nd Generation of Ryzen CPUs has been performing on our X470 motherboards so far we were excited to see how the TUF matched up, but nope. There isn't an overclocking option in the BIOS. You can't take manual control of anything. We're sure it's an oversight, but given the time stamp on this BIOS shot and the date now it clearly isn't a quick fix, as we're still waiting. This will have a massive effect on our final opinion.

... It always annoys me when motherboards ship without full voltage control. I don't like using voltage offsets, they differ far too much from board to board and don't offer the kind of control that I would expect when overclocking. I would have expected more from an X470 motherboard.Quote

Damn, Asus appears to be slipping. I'm still not happy with my CH6 Hero, and this looks even worse. Eeek!Quote

Lucky you. I can't even shut off the damn motherboard LEDs without cutting power to the system (and yes the option IS set in the bios). I've also had to revert to stock due to stability issues. Not impressed.Quote

I get so tired of reading reviews where they want to compare hardware to the flagship hardware when most folk are not going to notice a difference between any of these MB's with the same hardware build, and Clearly the only ones slipping here is this reviewer not Asus. I personally have this MB in my current build with a liquid-cooled Ryzen 2600x and you can most certainly overclock this board in the bios... you can also save OC profiles etc. The reason I went with the ASUS TUF X470-PLUS GAMING is more for the "TUF" Over-built Protection. I live is an area that is hot and humid in the summer or cold and electrostatic-dry in the winter. Plus everyone knows that Precision Boost is the way to go with a Ryzen CPU anyway. And if you want to OC a Ryzen on-the-fly... just use Ryzen Master software.Quote
