Overclocking

The Aorus Gaming 7 is capable of overclocking our Ryzen 7 2700X to a similar level as that we've seen from the Crosshair VII and MSI M7, with all the cores making it up to the 4.2 GHz mark. The Gaming 7 doesn't quite match up to the other X470 motherboards when it comes to memory timings, limited to just 3200 MHz, but the overall overclock - not suitable for 24/7 stability - of 4.45 GHz shows that there is plenty of performance available should you wish to spend the time necessary to extract it.

I had really annoying issues with the predecessor of this board, the Gigabyte Aorus GA-AX370-Gaming K7 and my Soundblaster xzr, which is the current PCI soundcard from Creative.

It sometimes takes several reboots until the soundcard is properly detected by windows which seems to be BIOS related, because there isnt such a problem with the other brands and their X370 boards for Ryzen. The soundblaster problems is known by over a year by Gigabyte but they seem to ignore it. I cannot recommend the predecessor therefore, not because of the hardware, but because of the poor service quality of gigabyte BIOS team.Quote

In the conclusion it talks about a voltage/LLC issue but I didn't see anywhere in the review where it's elaborated on. Can anyone shed some more info on this? I haven't used gigabyte in a long time and finally a friend convinced me to try it again so I pre-ordered this board and this issue concerns me (though it sounds fixable which is good)Quote

Im currently working with Gigabyte on getting the LLC fixed - thats also why there isnt a video atm.Quote
