X370 Taichi AMD X370 (Socket AM4) DDR4 ATX Motherboard

Well-Equipped X370-Mainboard (ATX), wit 3x PCIe x16 (x16/x8/4), 2x USB 3.1 (1× Type A & 1x Type C), 2x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA) & 8x SATA 6G, 10x USB 3.0 / 4x USB 2.0, max. 64 GB RAM at 2.666 MHz, LED-Lighting & ac-WiFi Motherboards with the AM4 socket serve as the platform for the AMD Ryzen (Summit Ridge) quad-core, hexa-core and octa-core CPUs as well as "Bristol Ridge" and "Raven Ridge" desktop APUs from the A-series with integrated GPUs unlike the old Athlon X4 which came without an iGPU. The advanced AMX X370, B350 and A320 chipsets are aimed at the enthusiast, mainstream and entry-level segments coming with an abundance of modern I/O interfaces and connectors for hardware peripherals, while additional data links are provided by the GPU/APU.

AMD Logo The processor's integrated memory controller supports AM4 motherboards as well as fast and energy- efficient DDR4 RAM in dual-channel mode, as well as specialist ECC error-correcting memory depending on the motherboard. The advanced "Zen" microarchitecture in conjunction with the AM4 platform forms the perfect foundation for high-performance systems in a range of applications.

The Layout of ATX-Format ASRock X370 Taichi

The ASRock X370 Taichi is a motherboard utilising the ATX format and comes with a lightning-fast 16x PCI-Express 3.0 slot that is connected to the chipset via eight lanes. Furthermore there is a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (4 lanes) and two PCIe x1 slots available for additional expansion cards. As an X370 motherboard the ASRock X370 Taichi supports AMD's Crossfire- and NVIDIA's SLI-technologies for multi-GPU setups. Up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM can be installed into the four RAM slots, operating at a maximum of 2.666 MHz (overclocked).

Special Features at a Glance:

  • 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 for high-end gaming graphics cards
  • 2x USB 3.0 Type A & Type C + 1x Turbo M.2 slot PCIe 3.0 x4
  • DDR4-RAM up to 2.666 MHz
  • LED lighting & Wi-Fi module
  • Modern UEFI-BIOS including temperature monitoring

Data storage devices such as SSDs and hard drives are managed via eight SATA 6G connectors (incl. RAID support) as well as one horizontal M.2 slot that comes with access to four PCI-Express 3.0 lanes and, consequently, extremely high access speeds of up to 32 Gbit/s, as well as a M.2 port with a SATA 6G connector. M.2 SSDs measuring from 42 mm to 110 mm in length can be used and furthermore the cutting-edge NVM-Express protocol is also supported. This protocol has been optimised to take advantage of the parallel processing utilised by modern PCIe SSDs.

A further highlight of the ASRock X370 Taichi is to be found on the reverse of the motherboard, specifically the fact that the motherboard includes a USB 3.1 Type C connector. This new type of USB Type C port is particularly slim and allows connectors to be inserted in either direction. USB 3.1 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 can reach a maximum transfer rate of up to 10 Gbit/s per port.

Special refinements to the ASRock X370 Taichi include LED lighting and a Wi-Fi module, that even supports the fast new AC-standard. Last but not least the board comes with onboard compatibility for five fans with 4-pin PWM connectors. The range of internal connections encompass two headers for USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 for a total of four ports.

The I/O shield located on the rear of the mainboard provides connectivity for additional devices and components via USB 3.0, Gigabit LAN, universal PS/2, five audio connectors and an S/PDIF output for connecting 7.1 surround sound systems to the ASRock X370 Taichi.

Compatibility Note for CPU Coolers Utilising AMD Socket AM4:

Due to the revision in mounting hole distances for the new AM4 socket, CPU coolers with rear mounts will - compared with preceding sockets e.g. AM2(+), AM3(+) or FM2(+) - require AM4-compatible mounting brackets. Please ensure compatibility prior to purchasing. CPU coolers that are attached directly to the retention bracket of the motherboard retain compatibility.

I initially had mixed feelings with this mobo. Layout is great, and 2 m.2 slots is definitely a bonus.

I struggled with bios overclocking and the manual may as well be written in hieroglyphics for all the help it was. Once I got my head around setting both vocre values to get it running in offset mode, hitting 3.9ghz on my 1700 was a doddle.

Memory support is excellent and I was able to get my Samsung b-die kit running at 3200 CL14 just by enabling the XMP profile.

If I could change anything, I'd reduce the size of the VRM heatsink as it's very tight with a 240mm radiator installed. It's a shame that the wifi controller isn't upgradeable, as the bundled chip isn't one of Intel's best efforts, but this is a minor niggle.

Bios updates have been regular and they keep adding new functionality, which bodes well for long term support.
