No Overclocking

Usually at this point we show you our CPUz results from our time overclocking. Given how well the 2nd Generation of Ryzen CPUs has been performing on our X470 motherboards so far we were excited to see how the TUF matched up, but nope. There isn't an overclocking option in the BIOS. You can't take manual control of anything. We're sure it's an oversight, but given the time stamp on this BIOS shot and the date now it clearly isn't a quick fix, as we're still waiting. This will have a massive effect on our final opinion.

... It always annoys me when motherboards ship without full voltage control. I don't like using voltage offsets, they differ far too much from board to board and don't offer the kind of control that I would expect when overclocking. I would have expected more from an X470 motherboard.Quote

Damn, Asus appears to be slipping. I'm still not happy with my CH6 Hero, and this looks even worse. Eeek!Quote

Lucky you. I can't even shut off the damn motherboard LEDs without cutting power to the system (and yes the option IS set in the bios). I've also had to revert to stock due to stability issues. Not impressed.Quote
