Experiences with Gigabyte Mobos & help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hej y'all!

I'm still struggling with choosing a mobo for my planned setup. Here I've listed all my planned components for now: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/fZwpvW
As the ROG Strix B550 mobos will probably cost too much, I checked the new Gigabyte mobos with the B550 chip. I found a site with the priced (dunno if they are 100% accurate tho). I'd love to hear some experiences with Gigabyte mobos from u and also which of the new Gigabyte B550's u'd recommend me. I'm thinking about the B550 Aorus Elite vs the B550m Aorus pro.

Here's the price list and some information about the mobos: https://wccftech.com/gigabyte-b550-motherboards-prices-specs-detailed/

Thanks in advance!

 

Best Regards,

baeni.

Wait until all models are released 

The rog strix is overpriced and has nothing special 

Have a look at the b550 tomhawk mag 

It has a 6 phase 4 stage power design iirc and it is fairly priced

Edit : about that list

Get a 5700xt unless you need nvec h265 or something

Considering how problematic Gigabyte has been recently, I'd say look at the B550 Pro4 from ASRock

Is there already a price revealed for the b550 tomahawk mag?

Not yet I think 

But it won't be more than 150 dollars

Usually they have a high stock voltage out of the box 

They don't have the best quality boards as well

Thought about getting an amd card actually but I really love the nvec h264 for using OBS.

Ah okay. That's kind of a shame as they look pretty dope imo.

Then get a 2070 super 

Other than that maybe the ram is a little overpriced but if you like how it looks 

These are micron quality dram chips that are close to b die

Yeah I think the 2070 super is pretty good priced for a decent gforce card.
Actually I've chosen the RAM cuz I wanted to go with corsair's rgb software ICUE but then I decided to get non-rgb fans so I might replace the ram aswell. Any recommendations for a decent ram? Should be rgb tho.

Trident z is decent 

They usually use b die 

There is the thermal take tough ram but it uses hynix and it's shit in terms of quality

Yeah I came across this ram already but unfortunately it's not available in white which is also pretty important for me (forgot to mention that) as I want to keep it all black'n'white and nobody want's to spend hundreds of euros for white mobo so I thought having white ram would be a good compromise.The Trident Z Royal would be white but it's really pricey.

Yea it is 

I guess if you really want it and you really want rgb go for it 

There is nothing wrong with that kit and it's quality is decent 

But coming back to the topic 

Wait until all b550 models are released and them base your own decisions based on the price and features etc
