MSI MEG Z590 ACE – PC Magazine

On the visual side of the PCB, the MEG Z590 Ace is a bit of a mixed bag. Like its predecessor, the Z590 Ace is predominantly black with shades of gray mixed in. The gray is so dark as to look black in most PC-case environs, whereas the MEG Z490 Ace’s lighter shades of gray showed more contrast with the black parts of that motherboard.

MSI compensates for this more somber tone by adding more RGB LEDs and by moving its signature dragon logo from the chipset heatsink to the rear I/O shroud. Overall, I think the lighting is a step up, but I wish the designers had kept the more noticeable mixture of gray shades on the heatsinks.

MSI X570S Motherboard Lineup Leaks

Courtesy of Wccftech, we have some new information today on MSI’s upcoming AMD X570S chipset based motherboards. Per their information, we’re looking at 8 (or more) products in the making:

  • X570S-A PRO MAX

The best part of these new boards is they all appear to be passively cooled. While I don’t mind low speed, temperature limited PCH fans, those of you that do may be very interested in these X570S boards when they roll out. Perhaps they’ll join the fray with a Ryzen 5000XT style CPU release later this year? Time will tell.

MSI MPG B560I GAMING EDGE WIFI – GreenTech_Reviews

Building a compact yet high-performance gaming system is a headache for all enthusiasts. There are a lot of problems, because the space in the case is very limited – it is necessary not only to lay the cables correctly, but also to organize the cooling correctly. With the release of the Intel B560 chipset, the task is slightly simplified in the case of mini-ITX motherboards, although the functionality will also be available less rich, but sufficient for any gaming system. The MSI MPG B560I Gaming Edge WiFi motherboard allows you to use Core i9 flagships, overclock the RAM (not the processor), and also provide some design freedom in the form of RGB backlighting, although it itself is completely deprived of it.

MSI MAG Z590 TOMAHAWK WIFI – GreenTech_Reviews

MSI MAG Z590 Tomahawk WiFi is a mid-range motherboard in the familiar full-size ATX format. Unlike its predecessor based on the Intel Z490 chipset, we have a board with full PCIe 4.0 support (when using 11th generation processors, of course), a new power subsystem, an increased number of M.2 connectors, an updated sound subsystem and … And to many others – after all, there are incomparably more differences between these boards than common details. The essence lies in the requirements of the new processors – this is not only the implementation of PCIe 4.0, but also other components of the board, including the power subsystem.

Other than the aesthetic colour change and use of 24-carat gold foil on the heatsinks – plus a cleaning cloth – both regular and bling editions are the same from an electrical and features point of view. Unlike the regular black version, however, there’s no RGB on the dragon logo or chipset heatsink for the Gold edition, so bear that in mind if onboard lighting is important.

It’s built like a tank, too, with every cover aluminium rather than plastic. Adding to the heft is an aluminium backplate which acts as a brace. Though gold is an obvious draw in the name, the board’s heatsinks are mostly silver, and it’s certainly an acquired visual taste.

MSI MPG Z590 CARBON EK X – eTeknix

The MSI MPG Z590 CARBON EK X has a lot more to offer feature-wise than just the amazing EK CPU Block that it comes with! Being on the latest Intel Chipset, Z590, the CARBON EK X can also offer support for things like WiFi 6e, PCIe Gen4 and much more. Unfortunately, as with all of the Z590 boards we have seen, the PCIe Gen4 only works when using an 11th Gen CPU. It would have been nice to see some Gen 4 slots run off the chipset, but Intel seems to have given this a miss this time around.

M.2 slots (one of them is directly connected to the processor with PCIe 4.0 lines), 6 SATA ports, 8 fan connectors. The processor’s power supply system is extremely powerful, it is able to ensure the operation of any compatible processor with overclocking headroom.

MSI MAG B560M MORTAR WIFI – Tech News Today

The B560 Mortar motherboard has an all-black PCB with a silver finish on the heatsink. The combination of the black PCB and the white PCB is a good color scheme. This motherboard fits in almost any aesthetic build scenario. The motherboard has no RGB elements for customizability. The lack of RGB hardware might keep the final build cleaner.
