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?
Apparently you do. ;)

I've reviewed several x570 boards since release. Since the bios updates came out really soon after, there was only one board that could hear the fan on.

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...

Not really. My point was highlighting the fact that replacement fans/heatsinks for chipsets were available on the market. Enzo tech also make some.

Not about if they would fit with your current set up or not. I guess you didn't understand my post entirely

in 2019 to have a board with small fan on it, is pretty lame. no excuses will make up for it. having said that, the cpu and gpu these days consumes more power than their equivalent parts from 5 years ago so there is a trend for more power usage and more power means more heat. Now, back to this motherboard, this is probably the best design and placement of components I have seen in an ITX form factor.Asus made a mess of it inZ390 version but they put everything in right places this version so big thumbs up for them, now lets wait for the reviews hopefully it will be soon.

Some Motherboards got small fans over their vrms. That's lame too I'm guessing. I mean pssshhh this is 2019 right?

So you're calling intel HEDT boards lame too? Tell that to the X299 Dark, X299 Omega, X299 Apex and even the C621 Dominus. The only thing lame here is your wallet. :roll:

I look forward to reading the reviews on this board. Hopefully i can pair it with a 3950X without issues.

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.
Yes. the youngins don't know the issues of motherboards with fans cooling the chipsets. My ABIT IC7-Max3 has fans for the chipset and the VRMs. Those small fans DIE.

I'm old. I remember the old shitty fans.

I also remember how shitty ALL fans were back then - fan tech is literal generations ahead of back then, they're a LOT quieter and more reliable.

Would i prefer a board without them? Yes.
Do i like a quiet VRM fan for an ITX board? oh god yes. This isnt ATX in a wind tunnel, its ITX. That cooling WILL help.

There are 2-3 others for x570.
... that aren't nearly as well engineered.

For example, Asus managed to make a board that still has all 8 USB ports on the back panel. Neither of their competitors managed that.

I refuse to buy a motherboard with tiny fans. I'd rather pair a new Ryzen with a X470/B450 mobo.

I've got X570 board - can't hear the fan. Silent mode pretty much turns it off until it reaches 60C, chipset's sitting at 46C during normal operation. Normal mode enables fan at 50C, fan curve is tied to the temperature. Extreme probably lowers the temp limit even more, haven't tried it.
GPU temps at idle - 37C with fans off on the gpu, didn't notice any impact while gaming. HDD is located in the PSU shroud, gets fed air by front case fan. Please explain how could its temperature be affected by a fan that's located in a separate compartment and most of the time is not even operating?
Chipset fan is rated for 60000 hours of operation, that's nearly 7 years working non stop. Now, seeing how in my rig it operates in a way that it's mostly off please explain to me how does your logic apply to modern X570 boards?
Like @Mussels said, people remember shitty fans from back in the day. A lot has changed since then.

Ps.
I've had an old board with a chipset fan in the past, back in Athlon XP days. Can't recall ever complaining about it or it failing on me. The ones that failed were shitty 40mm fans for HDD racks.
