Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi – Hurrah for proper VRMs!

Rating: 9.0.

KitGuru used the Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi in our launch reviews of the Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X as it proved to be stable and predictable, which is exactly what you want when you’re testing CPUs. Those are also desirable features in a motherboard but of course we are also looking for connectivity, the quality of the hardware and decent cooling. You get all of those things with the Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi and in addition you also get a huge amount of RGB lighting.
