MSI MPG B560I GAMING EDGE WIFI – Hexus

The primary M.2 has a decent, chunky heatsink and is connected to the CPU’s lanes, meaning there’s PCIe 4.0 x4 connectivity for 11th Gen Core chips. A second, uncooled, resides on the back and interfaces with the chipset at PCIe 3.0 x4 speeds. We find it unnecessary to have four SATA ports on a mini-ITX board; two ought to be sacrificed for a third M.2.

Moving on around, it’s a shame that MSI uses the older ALC897 audio codec. Rival Asus ROG Strix B560-I Gaming includes ALC1220 and 20Gbps USB on its price-comparable board.

AnandTech’s Best Intel Motherboards – June 2021 Edition

When it comes to buying a motherboard, there are a wide variety of models to choose from. On Intel’s current Rocket Lake desktop series, the main options include Z590, B560, H570, H510, although the previous Z490, Q470, and H470 chipsets also can accommodate 11th Gen chips. With that in mind, it still doesn’t narrow down the options, with a large selection of models based on different markets. Z590 is geared towards performance, B560 is more of a mid-range solution, and H510 is the budget end of the spectrum. With many variables to consider, we give our picks for June in our latest Intel motherboard buyers guide.

MSI MAG B560 TOMAHAWK WIFI – itndaily

What else do you need to know about the MSI MAG B560 Tomahawk WIFI? The device has a serious power subsystem (12 + 2 + 1) and two whole connectors (8 + 4-pin) for feeding the CPU. In our opinion, this is too much, because it is not possible to overclock any processor using this modification (this option is not supported by the chipset).

The MSI MAG B560 Tomahawk WIFI does not have hot buttons for turning on and restarting the PC, as well as the POST indicator. But on the other hand, the board has LEDs (CPU, DRAM, VGA and Boot), which help to identify a problem at the start, if any.

ASUS ROG STRIX B560-I GAMING WIFI – itndaily

The heart of the ASUS ROG Strix B560-I Gaming WIFI motherboard is the Intel B560 chipset, which is compatible with 11th Gen Intel Core (Socket LGA 1200) and PCIe 4.0. However, the main feature of the chipset is the ability to overclock the RAM . Now, to unleash the potential of high-frequency modules, it is not necessary to purchase a top-end platform based on the Z590.

ASUS ROG Strix B560-I Gaming WIFI is the perfect base for a compact gaming system or multimedia center. And all because the kit includes a smart Wi-Fi adapter that forms a reinforced concrete connection at home, in addition, the device has a lot of the most diverse “sockets” and demanded interfaces. Let’s talk about them in more detail.

GIGABYTE B560M AORUS ELITE – eTeknix

The B560M AORUS ELITE is an affordable way to be able to use Intel’s latest 11th Gen CPUs. Offering great performance at an affordable price while not diminishing on quality and design. The M-ATX form factor is going to allow for slightly smaller builds overall vs ATX but it still has dual PCIe x16 slots and two M.2 slots as well. While it may only have a single Gen4 slot of each, this should be enough for most current users wanting to make the leap to the latest Intel platform. Overall the smaller M-ATX form factor hasn’t missed out on much that the bigger boards would have, and performance is still on point as well.

ASRock B560 Steel Legend – Hexus

Back on point. ASRock duly takes advantage of what B560 has to offer. The 10-phase (60A) supply is more than sufficient for driving, say, a Core i9-11900K at its higher-wattage PL2 state.

Clear concessions have been made in achieving a lower street cost. There’s no integrated I/O shield, fewer USB ports than on Z590, the heatsinks are basic (but more than up to the task), no integrated WiFi, there’s only a single M.2 heatsink, there are no onboard buttons, and the audio isn’t as robust. None of these shortcomings are deal breakers for a fit-and-forget system.

TechSpot: Intel B560 is a Disaster

Depending on the B560 motherboard, performance of locked 65 watt parts like the 11400 and 11700 can be negatively impacted by over 30%. That’s right, we’re not talking about parts like the Core i9-11900K, but rather processors you will be using with a budget B560 motherboard.

Prior to this testing, the only B560 board that I had looked at was the MSI B560 Tomahawk which we used to review and benchmark the 11400F for our review. Performance was identical to Z590 boards I’d tested from the likes of Asus, MSI and Gigabyte. MSI even told me it was to be expected that B560 motherboards would offer the same level of performance as their Z590 counterparts, but it turns out that’s not always the case. Far from it.

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.
