Scumbag ASUS: Overvolting CPUs & Screwing the Customer

Sponsor: Deepcool AK620 Zero Dark on Amazon
ASUS’ deeds regarding the Exploding Ryzen CPU fiasco are disgraceful and abrasive to the trust that the brand has earned. ASUS has showcased plainly it wishes to not only dodge supporting users, but actively engineers ways to abandon them. ASUS’ updates have not even fixed the difficulties, yet they posture as if they have while simultaneously suggesting that users ‘just run defaults’ on their $700 motherboards, as if that makes any sense whatsoever. So, to accommodate ASUS’ request, we ran defaults and re-benchmarked the Ryzen 7000 series. It sucks. Big surprise. They also don’t support their own BIOSes for the ASUS ROG boards.

  1. @Aaron Mcneal Jays’ recent video is about sponsored freebie motherboards.

  2. As a long time fan of ASUS’ ROG line and years of pushing their products for custom builds, I can’t express the amount of disappointment I’m feeling right now. With everything going on with AMD this generation, I’ll be skipping this generation entirely and just sticking with my 5900X.

    Also @Steve, Nissan did exactly that with the GTR. Launch mode exploded transmissions, so they were voiding the warranty of anyone who used Launch Mode. 😛

  3. For my ASUS TUF X670E Plus WiFi with beta BIOS 1601, the warning prompt has been removed when I selected the EXPO II and from the BIOS 1601’s download section.

  4. @Nozdormu1982 AM4 is a different CPU infrastructure.

  5. @Surfer Dude For my ASUS TUF X670E Plus WiFi with beta BIOS 1601, the warning prompt has been removed when I selected the EXPO II and from the BIOS 1601’s download section.

  6. This happened to me with mine! I built mine using an ASUS maximus Viii Hero Alpha motherboard, and I left all settings on default. I didn’t know the motherboard was over clocking the processor, and one day, while I was playing, it randomly blue screen on me. Found out it overclocked the processor with too much voltage and fried it. I contacted ASUS about it, but they basically said Screw you not our problem

  7. I had to put out buckets to catch all the sarcasm dripping off this video, excellent job guys.

  8. Now as customer in this case potential one would I get kit from Asus NO

  9. Welp, ASUS has been removed from my build parts list. Thanks for the heads up

  10. Asus being shitty? lol. I’ve been saying it for years.

  11. I’m on an Intel build currently, but I’m mad I’m on an Asus board if this is how they’re going to handle this shit.

  12. Welp, I guess I’m glad I’ve seen this now rather than I come to doing my new build which WAS primarily based on Asus and Ryzen but I guess I’m not gonna bother if the company isn’t gonna take responsibility for their products
