You get a big bundle of black SATA cables as well as a short DisplayPort cable to use with the board DisplayPort input to go from your GPU to the board for Thunderbolt 4 support. You get a front panel connection helper that lets you wire everything out in the open then plug it all in at once and M.2 screws and rubber pads. The ProArt X570-Creator WiFi comes with a full user guide and a DVD with the software and drivers installed on it as well as a card with a QR code to guide you through installing the Asus Control Center software.

The ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Extreme features a powerful 18+2 VRM solution with 20 Texas Instruments power stages rated for 90 A. The jaw-dropping specifications do not stop there, either. Built upon ASUS’s excellent BIOS, the included EZ mode provides an optimal, stress-free experience for configuring the system. The Crosshair VIII Extreme also offers great connectivity with not only WiFi 6E and 10 Gb/s Ethernet, but Thunderbolt 4, and five M.2 slots round out this list. There is just too much to list in a single paragraph. ASUS has even outdone themselves and placed a 2″ LiveDash OLED screen on the motherboard.

ASUS ProArt B660-CREATOR D4 – Guru3D

The B660 board is equipped with an LGA 1700 socket and can support the entire line of Intel’s Alder Lake Desktop CPUs. It can house the unlocked lineup all the way up to the Core i9-12900K; however, a preferable option will be to outfit this board with the non-K series processors that launched alongside the B660 series. The ASUS ProArt B660-Creator D4 features an 8-pin + 4-pin connector for powering the CPU socket and is powered by a 12+1 phase digital power supply solution (CPU-only) comprising of 50A SIC654phases paired with a PWM-Controller: ASP2100 / RT3628AE. The motherboard features dark heatsinks above the power supply, providing adequate cooling for the electrical components beneath.

MSI MEG X570S ACE MAX – TweakTown

A few of the key ingredients in this refreshed motherboard come in the form of its thermal capabilities. This includes an enlarged chipset heat sink, full thermal armor for the m.2 slots, and improved heat pipe design for the VRMs. While discussing increased cooling for the VRM, we should also note the new 16+2 power design, an all-digital direct design that uses 90A smart power stages.

On the hardware front, the MEG ACE Max is an AM4 socket, X570 chipset design. This offers a wide range of compatibility with 3000,4000 and 5000 series CPUs. Memory is supported from 2133MHz through 5400 MHz, DDR4, with four slots available.

The ROG Strix B550i runs on the B550 chipset, meaning it will allow you to run the latest and greatest in AMD Ryzen gaming. Provided you update the bios, the B550i will let you run up to Zen 3 processors, with the board supporting up to two sticks of DDR4 memory and has a bit of room to overclock should you choose to go down that path. The motherboard has limited space for expansion, but features a single PCIe x16 Gen 4.0, and has space for a single M.2 PCIe 3.0 drive.

MSI MAG X570S Tomahawk Max WIFI is a top-end product, and by definition it cannot be cheap. Even despite the fact that the passive CO used here noticeably heats up, and there is nothing supernatural and original on the board (in relation to interfaces, functionality, etc.).

Not in favor of MSI MAG X570S Tomahawk Max WIFI and the fact that more and more budget motherboards are compatible with Ryzen 5000 processors, which means there are not so many reasons to choose a profile product in 2022.

MSI MPG X570S CARBON EK X – Tom’s Hardware

The X570S-based board also updates the design aesthetic on the board’s bottom half, eliminating the chipset fan and going with full-coverage heatsinks/shrouds over the M.2 sockets. The ribbed lines run diagonal and are a much more premium look than the original X570 Gaming Pro Carbon. The X570S Carbon EK X sells for $549.99, which is on the high side for an X570-based motherboard. That said, it’s still one of the easiest and least-expensive ways to get into watercooling your PC.

Behind, we are already seeing a more familiar picture. At the very top, we again see the inscription in large letters ASUS TUF Gaming B550M ZAKU II WIFI. Below are two photos of the device. One is straight on top and the other is angled so that you can see the rear panel connectors. On the left and right are tables that compose the detailed specification of the device. Below you can see four inserts describing the key features of the device.

ASUS ProArt B550-CREATOR – PC Magazine

The ProArt B550-Creator features a black PCB with black heatsinks on the VRMs, the chipset, and the M.2 slots. The rear I/O shroud is also black, but it’s made of an opaque plastic that leaves some components underneath barely visible.

Though the look is mostly monotone, I actually appreciate its simple design language. Nowadays, it seems as if many companies think everything needs to have LEDs and chrome. The heatspreaders on the M.2 slots are a bit starker than I might like, but overall I don’t think the board’s appearance will turn anyone away.
