ASUS' X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Formula hits Amazon UK - pricing revealed?

ASUS' X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Formula hits Amazon UK - pricing revealed?

Late last week we previewed ASUS' X570 Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard, and our readers kept coming back with one question. How much does it cost? 

As with a lot of pre-release content, the answer to this question is either that we don't know it yet, or that we are unable to discuss that aspect of the product at this time. Thankfully, at least in the case of the ASUS ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Formula, we have a new Amazon UK listing that has placed the motherboard up for pre-order, complete with a UK pricing.    

Amazon UK has priced ASUS' X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Formula motherboard at £674.98, placing the motherboard at an exceptionally high price tag for AM4. US readers should remember that UK sales tax, VAT, is included within this price tag, so take that into account if you plan on doing any USD price conversions. VAT is 20% in the UK. 

ASUS' X570 Crosshair VIII Formula is ASUS' highest-end launch day X570 motherboard, making it the highest priced motherboard in the company's product stack, so we can expect offerings such as the Crosshair VIII Hero and the X570 Strix series to ship with much lower pricing. 

  

ASUS' X570 ROG Crosshair VIII Formula hits Amazon UK - pricing revealed?  

With this being a pre-launch pricing leak, there is always the chance that Amazon UK's pricing is incorrect here. That said, this pricing level sits within our expectations for ultra-high-end X570 motherboards.

Ooof, for that price they can keep it. I'll put a monoblock on the Hero 8 and have the CPU and VRMs under water for far less money.Quote

A few other ASUS boards are on Amazon UK when I looked earlier; if they are not placeholders and are indicative on how much X570 boards are going to cost, then it'll be a very hard pass for me. I'd rather buy a top rated X470 insteadQuote

Monoblock only if you go for the looks. Hero can run with no heatsink at all just fine.

If you asked me some time back do I need to go for X370, or X470 board I would recommend X370. There was no major difference. Better memory compatibility, but nothing too grand. With X570 you get much more. PCIe 4.0 drives can be a good thing. But more importantly Precision Boost Overdrive. It will run much better on the new Chipset. Also, new CPUs have much more architectural differences than the previous gen. Yes, they will work with old boards, but X570 is where they really shine.Quote

Oh for sure, those VRMs don't even get taxed on the Hero7, even if you're doing nutso LN2 OCing. Monoblocks just make cooling easier IMO. And having the VRMs under water certainly won't hurt anything. Now if only better companies than EK would put out monoblocks (Bitspower doesn't count to me, since they're crazy over-priced and ugly AF). God how I wish Watercool did more motherboard specific stuff!Quote
