Gigabyte Z590 AORUS ELITE AX Reviews

Meh performance, and horrible fan speed support

By Erik
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-11

This is an average Z590 board - really nothing exceptional about it. However, the fan speed utility is gawd awful. I frequently run into the fans running like crazy while just browsing the web with the CPU under 45C. Gigabyte needs to fix this - it's a complaint I see going back years on their various boards. Wish I had known about it - I'd have spent a bit more to avoid it. There it goes again... smh...
