I think I figured out my own misunderstanding. I thought that the Asus didn't have any front IO other than audio. It is only lacking a USB 3.1 Gen2 port but has the others that I can use with my NZXT front panel. Thanks on Storage advice.

If a review was criticising the X570 PLUS for its front IO, it will probably have been for a lack of USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10gbps USB). It has that at the rear only.

But any modern motherboard will have both USB 3 and USB 2 internal connectors - precisely to allow cases' front USB ports to be connected.

Edit: Never saw your post immediately above - the notification only took me to your previous one. So yeah, you figured correctly I suspect!

Congratulations!! And a very nice setup too

How's the monitor gone down?
Hi, the monitor is beautiful, even my wife likes it 😊😊. Very sharp, colors great and so far so good. No dead pixels as well. Really sharp and while I think I see a difference on metro when I switch between 144 and 160, could be wishful thinking. Question if do I leave overclock monitor on, or only for gaming? Overall I am stoked and really happy with this. Had a weird no wake up from sleep situation yesterday but a restart cleared it.

Hi, it's the LG UltraGear 34GN850-B 34" 21:9 Curved 160 Hz Adaptive-Sync HDR IPS Gaming Monitor


I have the game set a 3440x1440 with aspect ratio at auto, quality at ultra , vsync off and motion blur is high and it's running beautifully, very fast and no weird nausea inducing blur. I'm actually surprised how nice it is. Also playing gears 5 at highest settings and it's just great. Thanks on monitor overclock. Why even make it an option then and not just have at at 160 from the factory? Good to know that I can just leave it. Lots of different settings I should play with. Overall , its super nice on games as well as photo editing so far and general use.

At a guess, it may not be guaranteed, or it may potentially cause some compatibility issues or worsen some elements of performance.

You lose some features:

DP (Max. Resolution at Hz)3440x1440 10bit(RGB444) at 144Hz,
3440 x 1440 8bit(RGB444) at 160Hz(O/C),
3440 x 1440 10bit(YUV422) at 160Hz(O/C)

e.g. RGB444 10 bit colour. Apparently.

So I guess it's offered as "you can probably use this, but X people might not want to" (or be able to(?)).

It does actually warn you when you switch that if image has issues switch back. So far it looks like a great monitor. Probably the nicest I've ever purchased, but it's not like I've purchased a lot of $1k monitors 😂😂😂. I'm probably crazy, but I am happy 😊

@Daso Crazy times at work have been keeping me away from the forums for a couple weeks but I wanted to pop in and say congrats on the finished build! It looks great, and it sounds like you're already getting great performance out of it. Glad to hear it's as quiet as you wanted as well!
