BIOSTAR Racing X570GT8 Motherboard Review

Installation

No real issues with installation. I do like the onboard diagnostic LEDs along with buttons for clear CMOS, reset and power on/off. It really helps with fast system setup and benchmarking.

I know the chipset can get hot, so that’s why most X570 motherboards will include a heatsink with an active fan. But one thing I don’t like about this, is the the power cable for the chipset fan … it’s just too exposed and plain ugly.

 

BIOS

There’s nothing fancy about the main BIOS page on the BIOSTAR Racing X570GT8. It’s very plain looking, but there are some options for adjust CPU and memory speeds and voltages. However, I couldn’t find the settings for XMP profiles, so the ram ran BIOS default if DDR4-2133. A little disappointing here.
