At $239.99, the Asus ROG Strix B660-A Gaming is designed for budget-conscious builders who don’t overclock their processors. It’s a well-rounded board with above-average audio for the price. Performance is good, and although the Strix is expensive among its peers, it’s a worthwhile option to build your Alder Lake-based system around.

ASUS ROG STRIX B660-F GAMING WIFI – Overclockers Russia

A medium-sized box and a handle for transportation are not required here. The exterior design is very attractive. High-quality printing, thick cardboard, and all the information on the box is explanatory. There is nothing superfluous. The background is predominantly black on the front and back, and red on the two sidewalls, which corresponds to the style of ROG. They removed the pink insert, but this does not mean that cyberpunk is gone, just a little tired of it already and I want something more calm.

MSI B660 Roundup – Allround-PC

Before we go into the individual models, we would like to briefly mention a few common properties. We compared the MSI MAG B660 Tomahawk WiFi DDR4, MSI MAG B660M Mortar DDR4, MSI MAG B660M Bazooka DDR4 and MSI Pro B660M-A DDR4.

Thanks to the LGA1700 socket, they all support the Alder Lake processors up to the Intel Core i9. The four mainboards each have four DIMM slots for up to 128 gigabytes of DDR4 memory. According to MSI, the main memory can be overclocked to a maximum of 4,800 megahertz (one module). All offer two PCIe x16 slots, the primary of which supports PCIe 4.0, and one PCIe x1 slot. HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 1.4 and 2.5 Gigabit/s Ethernet are always available .

On the front there is a large image of the board itself, where everything is very clearly visible, except for the rear panel connectors. In the upper left corner is the manufacturer’s logo and its familiar slogan “In search of the incredible.” In the middle is the model name TUF Gaming B660M-Plus WIFI D4. The modification is indicated in white letters. At the very bottom, almost along the edge, there is a large group of icons. In the lower right corner is the new TUF Gaming series emblem.

ASRock B660 Steel Legend – Tom’s Hardware

At $159.99, the B660 Steel Legend is priced right and comes with a feature set comparable to the competition, including multiple M.2 sockets, a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 port, and some bright RGB lighting. Performance was off in some heavily multi-threaded tests due to thermal throttling, but a simple voltage adjustment should mitigate this concern, as would running a lesser processor.

Unlike its sister with the Z690 chipset, it maintains the ATX dimensions of 305 x 204 mm , with black being the color chosen for the PCB and gray serigraphy. We have well elaborated changes in the shield of the external connections and in the chipset as well as in the heatsinks for M2. The heatsinks for the VRM are kept in black, which is the base color of all the heatsinks and trims. To give it more color we also have obliquely brushed gray. Behind we also have some small heatsinks for the VRM with thermal pads.

MSI MEG Z690 ACE – Overclockers Russia

The flagship motherboard should have a lot of modern interfaces. Not the fact that all of them will be useful to the user, but you need to match the status. And lovers of everything exclusive and expensive out of habit choose Intel. A new round of evolution, known as the LGA 1700, turned out to be strange. However, reasonable people realized that it is physically impossible to squeeze even more out of the 14 nm process technology. And the Intel platform was able to compete on equal terms with AMD Ryzen 5000 processors.

ASUS ROG STRIX B660-I GAMING WIFI – Overclockers Russia

You can even use a boxed cooler, and to be able to overclock the memory, you need an Intel B660 chipset. I have already tested quite a few different models on this chipset, but so far I have not come across any that support DDR5. For an ordinary person, this is not important, but there are people who definitely want everything new, and for them they made one such board in ITX performance, which is called the ASUS ROG Strix B660-I Gaming WIFI.
