ASUS started selling its premium Mini-ITX motherboard based on the AMD X570 chipset, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix X570-I Gaming. The board was announced as part of ASUS' X570 motherboard lineup back in July, but is only now reaching selves, with an MSRP of USD $220. The board features an elaborate thermal solution that cools the CPU VRM, the fiesty X570 chipset, and an M.2-2280 SSD over a network of interconnected heatsinks that are ventilated by two 30 mm fans. Despite crippling space constraints, ASUS managed to cram in a 10-phase VRM to power the socket AM4 CPU, which is wired to two DDR4 DIMM slots, an M.2-2280 slot, and the board's sole expansion slot, a PCI-Express 4.0 x16.

Storage connectivity on the ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming includes not one, but two M.2-2280 slots, one wired to the AM4 socket, and the other from the X570 chipset. The two M.2 slots are stacked one on top of the other, with a metal heatspreader between them, pulling heat from the drive below to the board's heatsink network. Four SATA 6 Gbps ports make the rest of the storage connectivity. Networking includes WiFi 6 (802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.0 from an Intel "Cyclone Peak" AX200 card; and 1 GbE wired Ethernet pulled by an Intel i211-AT chip. The onboard audio solution features a Realtek ALC1200A CODEC with dual OPAMPs.

I see the prices at 300€ right now :(
Hopefully they'll go down.

Still with the fans, I see. Have there been any comments or models announced without small fans?

as the model up from my current mobo, i likes it

wow!
useless MB ever created (fighting with 2011 itx mobos...)

1 fan for VRM... AND 1 (even smaller... 30mm?) for chipset
no thanks (with one standard 40mm fan i can live on.. but everything that is not replaceable... no thanks)

The fans on these new x570 chips are probably hurting the buying potential of these chips than what AMD & Chipmakers anticapated.

I see people already bitching about price and fan :rolleyes:
1. It's Asus.
2. Fan chipset. Are you just exaggerating or envy because your current motherboard doesn't support PCIe Gen 4.0 ?
3. VRM fan. People forget this is a mini ITX form factor that had to deal with such confined space, able to support future 16 core Ryzen 9 3950x and anticipate user that don't use top down cooler.

I'm still waiting any news about their upcoming Crosshair VIII Impact :D

The Chipset fan seems to be sandwiched between a PCB and the heatsink, where does it draw air from?

Sounds about right for a higher end mini ITX board.

The top plate is either plastic or aluminum with small holes for airflow. Fan pulls from that onto the heatsink.

I believe Asus retain from previous model Strix B450-I and Strix X470-I, they might using taller spacer between chipset heatsink and combo M.2 slot and audio card, leaving only small gap for fan to breath.

Those complaining about price... look at the two other x570 itx boards cost....

Those complaining about fans... wait for a review. Most of these fans cannot be heard over anything else in your case. Wait to see what reviews say.

The M.2 drives are NOT stacked, one is at the bottom of the motherboard.
The top drive is stacked with the "sound card".

Very nice looking board! Chipset fans do not bother me in the least, and nice to see a VRM fan since these probably won't be getting huge sure coolers. Would like to see a review.

Well keep an eye on that little fan for the dust, you will need to clean it regularly.

Well good job on designing this motherboard from Asus, hope they will take good care as this one for future Intel motherboards too.

People should listen to those that are complaining about the fans on a motherboard, they grew up with motherboards that had them for many many years:

* High Noise (All reviews conveniently left out the dB factor)
* Short Lifespans
* A Struggle for replacement
* Get's clogged full of dust/hairs too easily, stalling the fan (breaks)
* Blows hot air to unwanted areas. (Higher GPU / HDD temps)

This is what has severely put off on upgrading to this generation of Zen CPU's, I don't care for the older boards as they don't have what I need. There is only 1 motherboard, which is the Gigabyte 570 Auros Extreme, but for that price, you can definitely focus on upgrading something else.

Do you also need a reviewer to tell you that getting hit by a car really hurts? Or that charcoal black food wont taste good?

Some things are a given, and dont need reviewers to tell you. One of those things is that small fans are LOUD, and dont tend to last as long as larger fans. They have to spin REALLY fast to get air moving, and this creates a high pitched whine. There is a reason people dont fondly remember them from the PIII days. We've already got plenty of complaints about how loud these fans are, and now you are suggesting we "wait for reviews" to admit small fans suck?

As someone who lived with those boards.

*Fan noise loudness wasn't really the issue it was the pitch or whine they made that varied from manufacturers. At the same dB one fan could go unnoticeable on another on a different board would sound like the wicked cry of some demon hellspwan. A dB rating wouldn't tell us shit. The only way to tell is in person thus being the days before youtube the prevailing opinion was "They are tiny therefore are evil."

*My experience has been the board died before the fan and if the fan died before the board is mostly likely on it's way out.

*Back then yeah, today...I wouldn't imagine this being the case

*Tiny fan is evil

*No, other way around if anything.

Bearing tech has come a long way so I'm reserving judgement.

At the same time a lot of those points are no longer existent due to advances in technology, Or if they do they arent as critical to those issues as they once were back in those years.

-Fan noise - A lot of chipset/VRM fans used to run at the same constant speed regardless of temperature. a lot of stuff is now controlled by PWM or can be PWM.

-Short Lifespans - again fan bearing tech has come a long way but as always it depends on the bearing used some wear out quicker depending on the mounting orientation.

-Struggle For Replacement - Simple Answer EBAY. There are a lot of parts both original and 3rd party that can be found on ebay. At the same time there are loads of more places that will take a small fee to mill you a chunk of aluminum into a heatsink or if youre lucky you can find a heatsink that fits your measurements either on ebay or Amazon - I bought heatsinks for my 1080Ti off amazon - some fit, some didnt but they were cheap.

To this nature, replacement fans fall in to the same category. There will be merchants you can buy them off on ebay. They might be inferior in quality compared to the originals but im sure Asus or whoever will charge you a lot more for a replacement fan if youre out of warranty... Would rather have 3 or 4 inferior fans from ebay than one overpriced fan from Asus if youre out of warranty.

- dust/hair isnt really an issue anymore. a lot of cases come with dust filters - if not then there are 3rd party aftermarket companies like demciflex that make filters for your case as well as loads of other PC cases. You can even make your own dust filter with dust filters used for air conditioners on ebay for sooooo cheap - this is what i do and i have done so for years.

Clogging up only really matters if youre a smoker because the tar and other stuff sticks to things and makes it sticky. Thats why if youre a smoker - your clothes will always have that whiff of tobacco.

Blowing hot air to unwanted areas - Is only an issue if your case has Zero airflow. Though it will probably run hotter because its sucking in air from right below the graphics card. but if you got good airflow this is a non issue. Your GPu will most likely run hotter than any chipset anyway. HDDs on the other hand - non issue. If M.2 NvMe SSD though - still a non issue. providing there is a heatsink and some form of airflow its going to be just fine.


I worked on a lot of Asus A8N and Nforce 2, Nforce 3 systems back in the day and a lot of them. their chipset fans got clogged or all out stopped working. but the PCs just carried on working and working. Akasa also used to make these chipset cooling fans..



And i replaced a fair few broken chipset fans with these ones evn though i didnt need to.

I mean accelero iv is out of the question - thats for sure.
what about cards with elevated backplate? what about Thicc II?

Anyone know if this board supports pcie bifurcation? I've been desperate to make a sff MITX build with x570, but seeing as no MITX boards have 10GBase-T networking, I'd have to throw in one of my Intel X550 NICs as there's no point for me to build a machine if I can't connect it to my home 10GBase-T network.

Even if it does support bifurcation, I'm sure it'd be difficult to find a pcie riser that'd be able to split a 4.0 signal

Here we go again about fans. Get over it, Internet!

They’re not loud, as mentioned. They’re similar to laptop fans at lower RPM. I cannot hear the one in my CHVIII over my 400 RPM Noctua fans. I mean, seriously, just let it go already...

I bought mine around month -two ago! from official website! they are not going anywhere ;)

but thats a bad example, how about THICC II card and other cards that have "love handles" in lower backplate area lol
I mean I get that this board supposed to be for super small form factor but still...
