So I realized the hard way, like many features I would like, Intel ZXXX does not support. So, I am checking AMD and discovered that the AM5 processor supports PCIe-Bifurcation on the PCI lane. What I like about this motherboard is the PCI lane, which is 5.0, power, and connections. From the outside looking in and as I read reviews for this board, I see that the reviews are all over the place. Some love it, some hate it, and at $400 bucks, some have shredded this item should be a lot more polished. I am shocked; no one else in the market offers an X670 ITX motherboard for the sake of options. I want some stability in a system, and I will use this for CAD, 3D, BIM, and Rendering. I am not a gamer. But I am willing to do what I have to have a solid system.

Has anyone on this form used this motherboard?

According to the Manual, this motherboard will support ECC (NonRegistered RAM). Does anyone have experience using ECC in this kind of motherboard? Success?

Does it support PCIe-Bifurcation by taking the single X16 and spacing it to two X8 slots?

You're looking for a niche within a niche, mate. What is your objective with this purported workstation and why do you need/want bifurcation support? Also budget would be a sensible thing to figure out.

I am willing to pay for what I need when it comes to a few items in a computer. So, from my point of view, the cost of the correct motherboard and processor I am eager to do my homework and pay for. The motherboard and processor are foundational items. If you jack it up, trying to pull and remove it repeatedly is not fun and costly, especially since computer parts do not hold value.

I want to take the want bifurcation and use it with either extra M.2 drives or GPUs. Due to the size of the case, I can use an extra lane of what ever. So I like to actually get the most out of the system.

You might be better served with a Micro ATX board but there are none. If you are planning on putting a 4x4x4x4 card that might be better as you could still add a GPU to the 2nd slot to take advantage of VRAM and save some money. Make sure you check the manual and not have the 2 PCIe slots shared with the CPU.

I agree, this is why I don't hesitate to splurge on the motherboard. But what you are trying to do has gotten very, very hard since dual-core GPUs died. ITX systems are ill-equipped for this, any space savings you'd get from building a low-volume machine, you will lose by using riser cards and the sort. Why not an ATX form factor on a relatively compact case? Or even a micro ATX (although micro ATX boards tend to be on the budget side with rare exceptions, I'd tell you to look at the ROG Crosshair X670E Gene). The only use case I see for requiring bifurcation is if you intend on buying one of those RTX 4060 Ti cards that have an additional M.2 slot in them.


The X670E chipset is a generally a good pick - you can buy one of the newly released EPYC processors on socket AM5 for them to build a workstation with it.

Thank you. I have to stick with an ITX.

I am looking at doing an 8 x 8 on the GPU. I have an extra slot, which I will use for GPU space. So I want to ensure I have this kind of access to pull it off before pulling the trigger

This X670E-I might be the only option you have meeting the criteria of supports bifurcation + high-end motherboard with steady BIOS support + ITX form factor, then.

I checked the Epyc processors and some Asrack Rock motherboards for the small format. But with Epyc, speed will not be on my side.

You are correct. There is nothing in the M-ATX market of AM5. For some reason, everyone skipped over this generation of components. I considered the Asrock Rack Intel Xeon MATX (Deep) Motherboard—that Joker is nice. But going that route will bust my wallet.

Are you sharing that splitting PCI lanes from X16 to X8 + X8 can not work? An I missing something about this technology?

This board does not even have a HDMI port. If the OP wants to use the IGPU it could be a real issue. What the OP needs is a budget X670E board with the 2nd PCIex16 slot wired to the chipset.

I guess that since Crosshairs are more like enthusiast-class boards, Asus may have thought that the user uses an external GPU anyway.

High-end boards such as these generally omit HDMI or DP ports. The space that would house the display-out circuitry is used with a more robust VRM or to bolster its rear I/O capabilities with more useful and relevant ports such as high-speed USB or Thunderbolt ports (Thunderbolt can carry video signal, but it's not available on AMD systems).

I checked the Epyc processors and some Asrack Rock motherboards for the small format. But with Epyc, speed will not be on my side.

To be precise, this bespoke bifurcation is specifically splitting x16 into x8+x8 or more from one single physical x16 connector. If you do not need to run two devices off the same slot with independent resources, support for this is not necessary.

Using something like this....
Connect this directly to the PCI X15, now will give me two X8 X8. Right?
I want to confirm, Asus motherboard will not have an issue with something like this?

It's not a matter of being ASUS, Gigabyte or whatnot, but the underlying chipset. The X670E is compatible with bifurcation. This board is specifically on the ASUS HYPER M.2 Gen 4 daughtercard's compatibility list with full x4+x4+x4+x4 support, so it probably works. Return it if it does not.

Nice information - thank you. agree, now, it should work based on the data.

Wait for motherboard refresh and Zen 5.

Arrow Lake will likely be better.

I have this board and it's suited more for a gamer than a workstation.

What's your role here again? :laugh:
I said "much the same", it means similar, it doesn't mean exactly alike.
The boards aren't even close in terms of specs.

They both support AM5 CPUs and have 2.5 GbE , that's about it for "same".

If you're simply suggesting a cheaper option that's fine, but calling a lower end B650E board "much the same" as an X670E premium board is disingenuous.

Aww, you have this board. That's nice!

Gammer board, sure. Technically, I have no room to debate that portion of your statement. From my point of view, it's the ONLY X760E ITX motherboard that exists. What it offers is excellent across the board. I have done my homework, and this board will work for me. I deal in water cooling, and that's a plus for me.

As I previously shared, this motherboard review is all over the place. For this board to be the best of the best offering for the X760E-ITX. I wanted to know why some people have this and how it technically works out for them. In the early stages of release, I get that BIOS updating is something to come. Now that I'm out for a bit of time, I assume Asus is doing somewhat of what it needs to do to make updates that benefit the consumer. I am not tripped about the item's price, but I am seeking stability and a solid foundation for a system where I will do 3d, CAD, Rendering, and BIM. One of the things I want to really take advantage of is ECC (unregistered RAM) support. And this has all the motherboard jacks to support my fans, pumps, and temp modules without an outside device.

So, for you, how has your personal experience been with this board?

The manuals says, 2 x DIMM, Max. 96GB. Is this 96GB X 2 - 192? or 48GB per stick X 2 - 96GB?

What it offers is excellent across the board. I have done my homework, and this board will work for me. I deal in water cooling, and that's a plus for me.

As I previously shared, this motherboard review is all over the place. For this board to be the best of the best offering for the X760E-ITX. I wanted to know why some people have this and how it technically works out for them. In the early stages of release, I get that BIOS updating is something to come. Now that I'm out for a bit of time, I assume Asus is doing somewhat of what it needs to do to make updates that benefit the consumer. I am not tripped about the item's price, but I am seeking stability and a solid foundation for a system where I will do 3d, CAD, Rendering, and BIM. One of the things I want to really take advantage of is ECC (unregistered RAM) support. And this has all the motherboard jacks to support my fans, pumps, and temp modules without an outside device.

So, for you, how has your personal experience been with this board?

The manuals says, 2 x DIMM, Max. 96GB. Is this 96GB X 2 - 192? or 48GB per stick X 2 - 96GB?
It's a good board.

Two issues.

#1, no ECLK to OC X3D;
#2, chipset fans are annoying, so I just removed them.

I wouldn't recommend more than 96 GB of RAM on a AM5 platform, you'd sacrifice way too much frequency. Even at 96 GB I'd be surprised if you could run faster than 4800 MT on Zen 4.

Seriously though, wait for the motherboard refreshes even if you don't care about Zen 5 or Arrow Lake.
