Motherboards Socket AM4 GIGABYTE AX370-Gaming 5 (AMD X370) Motherboard Review Our next AMD Ryzen motherboard review focuses on GIGABYTE's AORUS AX370-Gaming 5 (AMD X370). Should you consider it? Let's see. By: Steven Bassiri | Socket AM4 in Motherboards | Posted: Mar 28, 2017 3:40 am Comment | Email to a Friend | Font Size: AA TweakTown Rating: 93%Manufacturer: GIGABYTE Page 1 [Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing] Introduction As our second AMD X370 motherboard review, I will be putting the GIGABYTE/Aorus AX370-Gaming 5 under the microscope, and dissect its secrets. The AMD X370 chipset provides a decent amount of IO expansion over the basics provided by the CPU. Most notably, the X370 chipset offers two USB 3.1 ports, which is a first for a platform chipset. The CPU will provide extra USB and storage, and the chipset compliments it. The X370 chipset is also one of only two that provides multi-GPU capabilities such as SLI or CrossFireX for your Ryzen CPU.

GIGABYTE's subsidiary Aorus,

GIGABYTE's subsidiary, Aorus, is positioned to readily target the high-end gaming segment with premium features and aesthetics. Aorus's first motherboards appeared for the Intel Z270 chipset launch, and they addressed many of GIGABYTE's shortcomings in areas such as the UEFI, fan control, and overall aesthetics. I will add that if you love RGB LEDs, then this motherboard is for you, it is loaded to the brim with RGB LEDs and headers. Don't worry you can disable them if you don't want them. Without further delay, let's take a look at the AX370-Gaming 5.
