When I was at Computex I saw plenty of motherboards but all but a small handful were already in production and available for purchase. And, despite my enthusiast roots nobody wanted to show me the latest overclocking board or a high-end gaming board. No, they wanted to show off the latest mining friendly systems.
So, what does that have to do with the X470 Taichi? Nuffin just needed a catchy intro for someone "not" to read before not clicking on the link to view the review.
ASRock is back in da house, this time with the X470 Taichi. A motherboard that positions itself in the high-end range of X470, nicely built motherboard really and good looking is what it screams.
I'm curious. What does "and good looking is what is screams"? really mean? Does the motherboard make noise? Lets find out.

Computex 2018 has concluded and I'm spending some of my weekend downtime to compile a few articles about what was fun and exciting at the show.
Just as a heads up about the Hardware Asylum Podcast this month. As I'm still kicking it in the R.O.C. the show won't be recorded until later this month. The plan will be to have a Post Computex show and an extra to capture some of the more ranty stuff that might come up. *warning: there is a bunch this time around.
I also wanted to extend my apologies for missing the Hardware Asylum Podcast "Extras" for the month of May. Darren and I sat down to record only to have the audio get corrupted. These things happen from time to time and sadly, there wasn't enough time to re-record.
As always if you have any questions or comments related to the show send us an email or message on any of our social platforms.

TUF Gaming releases the M5 mouse, K5 keyboard, H5 headset, GT501 chassis and the FX10CP desktop
Fremont, CA (June 4, 2018) - The PC gaming renaissance is bringing a new generation of recruits into the ranks. They’re joining a community that’s increasingly diverse and frequently unfamiliar with the intricacies of building a complete rig. TUF Gaming aims to make the process more approachable by smoothing out the wrinkles in the DIY experience. Designed for gamers seeking stability and performance at an affordable price, it focuses on delivering durable gear that can survive the rigors of punishing play now and still deliver reliability in the future.
TUF Gaming takes battle-hardened aesthetics in a forward direction. Although it started with motherboards, the family is expanding to peripherals and other components that embrace the same style, making it easier than ever to assemble a cohesive gaming setup. All-new additions include the TUF Gaming M5 mouse, K5 keyboard, H5 headset, and GT501 chassis developed by our own internal teams, plus an array of components produced by TUF Gaming Alliance partners. Complete systems like the TUF Gaming FX10CP desktop and FX504 laptop are also beginning to spread TUF Gaming values to machines that get you in the game right out of the box.
ASUS is featuring our full lineup ofTUF Gaming products during Computex 2018 in Taipei, Taiwanat the ASUS booth, #M410 in Nangang Hall, from June 5-9. For a full rundown of our new TUF Gaming products and TUF Gaming Alliance updates, please visit us at ASUS EdgeUp.
Mice it your way with the TUF Gaming M5
Mice are particularly prone to physical wear and tear, so the TUF Gaming M5 is coated in durable paint that stands up to heavy use. The Omron switches under the left and right buttons are ready for the long haul, too. They’re rated to survive 50 million clicks, assuring reliably responsive input for years of regular gaming in even click-centric MOBAs. And all the buttons are programmable with functions or macros using our Armoury II software, which saves settings for up to three profiles directly on the mouse’s internal memory, making them available on any machine.
Pixart’s PAW3327 optical sensor monitors motion at resolutions up to 6200 DPI, which is more than enough sensitivity for the vast majority of gamers and even eSports pros.Aura Sync adds configurable accent lighting that’s easy to match with the rest of your rig, ticking the final box on a list of essential features.
Splishing and Splashing with the TUF Gaming K5 keyboar
Keyboards also suffer a lot of hands-on abuse, including accidental spills if you get bumped inadvertently at a crowded LAN party or celebrate a hard-fought victory a little too emphatically. But the TUF Gaming K5 isn’t afraid of a little liquid; its splash-proof design can withstand up to 60 ml, preventing small spills from ruining your night.
The key caps are also covered by three layers of paint, one more than typical keyboards, which helps them hold up to everyday use. Under each cap, Mech-Brane switches use a specially tuned membrane to mimic the feel of a mechanical design. Five-zone Aura Sync backlighting stretches across the keys, powering a personalized array of colors and effects that you can easily synchronize with the M5 mouse. Like with the M5 mouse, Armoury II lets you record custom macros and save them to onboard storage.
Getting comfortable with the TUF Gaming H5 headse
The TUF Gaming H5 headset is designed with a focus on durability, style and comfort. Its stainless steel headband adds strength in a key area while giving the headset a premium look. The lightweight design is comfortable to wear for longer gaming sessions that would otherwise test your endurance.
Each ear cup contains a 50-mm Essence driver backed by an airtight chamber that improves sound quality. A removable boom hangs down from the left with an analog mic for communicating with your squad. For more immersion, plug in the included USB adapter to add virtual surround sound that puts you at the center of the action.
Making a case for the TUF Gaming GT501
While our TUF Gaming peripherals spread the military-inspired motif across your desktop, the GT501 chassis clads your PC components in matching armor. Sturdy steel dominates the construction, with plastic limited to pieces for front-panel connectors and the base of the front face. A sheet of smoked tempered glass provides a stealthy window into your battle station and woven cotton handles make it a simple transport to LAN parties.
The thumb screws holding the window can sometimes be affixed too tightly at the factory, so the case ships with a handy TUF Gaming tag that doubles as a screwdriver. Once you’re inside, ample routing options and a 30-mm gap behind the motherboard tray make it easy to thread cables cleanly. We even left space to neatly run RGB strips.
Effective cooling is one of the most important factors for sustaining peak gaming performance, so the GT501 has plenty of room for fans and radiators. It includes a trio of high-flow 140-mm PWM fans right out of the box, which is perfect for pairing with the intelligent cooling control offered by TUF Gaming motherboards. There are additional mounts for three fans up top and three more at the front, with both locations supporting dual-fan radiators up to 280 mm and triple-fan units up to 360 mm. Removable filters in the bottom, front, and top panels prevent dust and other particles from getting sucked into the case.
Your rig is incomplete without parts from the TUF Gaming Alliance
The TUF Gaming Alliance is assembling an army of components made by like-minded partners. Our initial focus has been on maintaining an aesthetic theme across a broader array of the parts that make up your PC. Matching memory modules, coolers, cases, and one PSU are available now, with more on the way in each category. Products are already selling or in the works from a who’s-who of industry heavyweights that includes Antec, Apacer, Ballistix, Cooler Master, Corsair, Deepcool, Enermax, G.Skill, GeIL, In Win, Scythe, Silver Stone, Team Group, and XPG.
Beyond mandating consistent cosmetics, the TUF Gaming Alliance establishes new standards for stability that go beyond our usual vendor validation procedures. DRAM compatibility has long been a problem area because some modules are pushed so close to the edge that they’re sensitive to minor frequency and voltage fluctuations that occur in the real world. We account for these normal variances with stricter DRAM testing that stresses modules with their clock speed raised and voltage lowered, plus the memory must survive 24 hours of Memtest in a thermal chamber cranked up to a sweltering 50°C.
Environmental conditions affect power delivery, so PSUs must endure their own torture test in the heat locker. They’re qualified at an even higher temperature and also face a steamy 90% humidity level throughout testing. We’re currently exploring other ways to not only guarantee stability, but also more deeply integrate products in the TUF Gaming Alliance.
An alternative approach to gaming laptops and desktops
TUF Gaming systems provide an alternative to DIY builds for gamers who want a ready-made desktop or a laptop they can take on the road. These initial imports into the family fit our priorities and provide an early glimpse at what ASUS will bring to affordable gaming machines.
Focusing on what matters for gaming is the best way to maximize a limited budget, so the TUF Gaming FX504 laptop offers upgrades in key areas. The top model’s 15.6” display hits all the right notes: high refresh, quick response, and wide color gamut. Its 120Hz refresh rate makes gameplay and graphics much smoother and with its NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 1060 GPU, the FX504 can hit triple-digit frame rates in many popular games. It’s available with up to a six-core Intel Core i7-8750H processor with ample horsepower for gaming, live-streaming, and much more.
For stationary battle stations, the new TUF Gaming FX10CP desktop puts capable components in a reinforced tower. The Radiating-X design on the side panels adds structural reinforcement that protects your investment, while dual chambers with dedicated intakes optimize cooling on the inside.
With up to an Intel Core i7-8700 six-core CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics, there’s enough horsepower for casual gaming and other tasks, like catching up on work, editing photos, or splicing together in-game recordings to create your own highlight reels.
AVAILABILITY & PRICING
The new TUF Gaming peripherals will arrive in Q3 2018. For additional information, product images and specifics on our new TUF gaming products, please visit us at ASUS EdgeUp.

ROG expands into new product categories with introduction of ROG Ryujin and Ryuo CPU liquid coolers,ROG Thorpower supply and ROG Strix Gaming Chassis
Fremont, CA (June 4, 2018) —Since Republic of Gamers(ROG) inception 12 years ago, we’ve been on a mission to spread innovation to the different components comprising gaming and enthusiast PCs.Starting in 2006 with motherboards, we dared to defy conventional thinking in pursuit of our passion to produce the world’s best gaming hardware. That drive led us to expand into graphics cards and laptops, and then into monitors and peripherals. More recently, we’ve also worked to ensure that these different pieces fit together more meaningfully, allowing you to build a complete system that reflects ROG style with your own personal flavor.The new ROG Thor 1200W Platinum PSU, ROG Strix Gaming Chassis plus the ROG Ryujin and Ryuoall-in-one coolers exemplifies these continued efforts.
Republic of Gamers is featuring our full lineup ofproducts ranging from laptops to all-in-coolersduring Computex 2018 in Taipei, Taiwan at the ASUS booth, #M410 in Nangang Hall, from June 5-9. For a complete look at our new ROG products, please visit us at Republic of Gamers.
ROG Ryujin 360/240
The ROG Ryujin is our flagship thermal solution available in radiator sizes of 240 mm and 360 mm. This one is a showstopper with a stylish shroud infused with NCVM effects. The surface treatment and slash across the face match our recent motherboards designs, helping the cooler maintain a consistent aesthetic.
Liquid cooling is powerful, yet it doesn’t circulate air around the CPU socket like a traditional heatsink and fan. Airflow in this area is important because it is home to the VRMs responsible for powering the CPU and often an M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs, so our engineers embedded a 60-mm fan inside the pump housing. This pushes air north, south, and west of the socket to lower the temperature of surrounding components. We designed the Ryujin to meet the thermal challenge of newer CPUs with ever-higher core counts. Noctua’s industrial-grade iPPC-2000 PWM fans are strapped to the radiator, blending high performance with low noise.The 1.77-inch LiveDash color OLED shows real-time system stats and personalized images and GIFs.
ROG Ryuo 240/120
The ROG Ryuo brings the Asetek core of its big brother to a more affordable package. Its aluminum pump cover skips the Ryujin’s extra shell in favor of a more conventional look. But you still get same OLED display, and the socket is illuminated by nine addressable LEDs.With 240-mm and 120-mm sizes, the Ryuo covers mid-sized builds and smaller form factors. The radiator fans are based on our in-house Wing-Blade design, which is shared by ROG graphics cards and our new Thor PSU. The shape is optimized for high airflow, while keeping noise levels down.
ROG Thor 1200W Platinum
The new ROG Thor 1200W Platinum PSU is the first power supply from the Republic of Gamers and designed for overclocked CPUs and multiple graphics cards. Later this year, it will be joined by an 850W version tailored for gaming PCs that aren’t quite as extreme.We’ve amped up the cooling on proven Seasonic hardware, included custom heatsinks, ensured 80 Plus Platinum certification, added a 10-year warranty and infused it all with customizable Aura Sync lighting and a real-time wattage information displayed on an OLED panel. The result is a premium PSU that’s perfectly at home in high-end ROG rigs.
ROG Strix Gaming Chassis
Tastefully designed in aluminum and smoked glass with addressable AURA Sync lighting technology,Strix Gaming Chassis offers a distinctively ROG design, which includes a swappable panel up front to change the looks, plus woven handles up top for easy carrying to LAN parties. The Strix chassis has room for high-end liquid coolers like the Ryujin 360, and it will include a vertical GPU bracket to showcase Strix graphics cards. Separate addressable lighting on the side and front panel plug directly into headers on ROG motherboards, illuminating everything with your personalized palette. In addition, ROG Strix Chassis features a Quick Charge 3.0 port, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, a tool-free ROG SSD caddy and magnetic dust filters.
The ROG Delta Type-C headset is the latest addition to our growing line of audio devices. Like its namesake, the Delta merges converging paths with ease, bridging PCs and mobile devices with USB-C connectivity that works with the latest examples of both, like our new Strix SCAR II and Hero II laptops and the ROG Phone.
With a lightweight design that’s optimized to cradle your head, the Delta is comfortable to wear whether you’re out and about with your phone or locked into a long battle on your PC. Inside, an ESS based quad-DAC array featuring an impressive 127-dB(A) SNR splits the stereo signal to produce clearer and more refined sound for games and other content. And outside, Aura Sync RGB lighting offers nearly limitless possibilities for personalized illumination.
ROG Balteus Qi
ROG Balteus Qi is an RGB gaming mouse pad that combines a performance surface with the convenience of Qi wireless charging on the desktop. A 370 x 320mm portrait-oriented surface offers ample space for simultaneous charging and gaming, while the micro-textured hard surface enables pixel-precise tracking. Featuring 15 individually customizable Aura Sync RGB lighting zones for personalization, the mouse pad is also equipped with an on-pad lighting mode button for on the fly adjustments and a USB 2.0 pass-through port for easy connections. Apart from ROG Balteus Qi, its sibling the Balteus will also be available for gamers who want the extra flair but without the wireless charging function.
ROG Gladius II Wireless
A natural fit for both laptops and desktops, the ROG Gladius II Wireless frees our most coveted gaming mouse from the shackles of a USB tether. It pairs ultra-fast RF and low latency Bluetooth technologies with a new Pixart 16000dpisensor that provides impeccable tracking. We helped optimize the sensor’s power consumption to improve battery life, allowing the Gladius II Wireless to game for 24 hours with the lighting turned off. Aura Sync illumination is still available, and topping up the battery is easy with the included USB cable, which switches the mouse into wired mode for the best possible connection.

I have to apologize for the lack of news postings, or as google calls them, unimportant bits of content that help link one website to another. BUT. I digress.
It is time for Computex again. Computex is an annual trade show held in Taipei Taiwan and unlike CES has almost 100% relevance to the items I cover on Hardware Asylum. Here you are able to see the genesis of PC hardware and the supporting accessories developed to support it.
I have been attending this show since 2003 when Hardware Asylum was better known as Ninjalane and have seen trends come and go, seen companies rise to the top only to suffer the following year. I have seen the rise and fall of Overclocking and the struggles associated with Gaming hardware and how companies have attempted to strike a balance between what is "trendy" vs "actually useful”.
Of course the big thing these days is Mining and cryptocurrency and I suspect there will be plenty of companies releasing hardware for that niche. I have a hard time supporting the Mining culture which is no different from Overclocking when you consider the audience.
Computex starts June 4th and I'll be doing my best to publish some live content on the @hardwareasylum twitter page and will follow up with my normal list of articles after the show.
