ASUS TUF GAMING B660M-PLUS WIFI D4 – PC Inquisitor

This is not your father’s Asus front-panel connector: While similar in shape to the one used on older boards, its divided into a now-standard Intel-style 9-pin group on the left, and a legacy PC Speaker /Chassis Intrusion / 3-pin Power LED group on the right. Above and to the left of this front-panel group are four SATA ports, two that point outward from the bottom edge and two that point forward from the front edge.

MSI MAG B660M MORTAR WIFI DDR4 – PC Gamer

Everything that you would actually want from a solid, mainstream gaming PC is present and correct here. There’s a full, reinforced x16 PCIe 4.0 slot for the GPU, another full length slot running at x4, and then a final, short x1 PCIe 3.0 slot. Few of us overclock, so that’s not really a miss here, and few have more than one M.2 SSD either. The fact you get a pair of PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots for your drives (one from the chipset and one from your Alder Lake CPU) will be plenty for most users.

MSI MAG B660M MORTAR WIFI – Professional Review

The B660 chipset is two steps below the Z690 in capacity, ideal for this type of CPU without overclocking capacity focused on general consumption.

We will analyze the version in Micro-ATX format with capacity for DDR5 RAM memory , with 2 M.2 PCIe 4.0 slots and integrated Wi-Fi 6E card. A very interesting option because it will be valid for gaming equipment together with a 12700 and even a 12900, thanks to a powerful 13+1 phase VRM and extensive internal connectivity and on the rear panel with USB Gen2x2.

Starting with the motherboards, as usual MSI’s been on their game by quickly sending over the MAG B660M Mortar WiFi DDR4 and as it stands this is the only B660 board we have for testing, so we’re happy to have it.

But no matter, the B660M Mortar WiFi DDR4 is a great starting point and is ideal for showing off the new Core i7-12700.

MSI MAG B660M MORTAR WIFI DDR4 – TweakTown

B660 should be a fantastic addition to motherboard lineups depending on vendor choices. For MSI, the MAG B660M Mortar is a well-made solution that sports enough connectivity between USB 2.0 and USB 3.2 for most consumers to be happy. I do like that 2.5Gbe has stayed on as a platform feature with B660 and enjoy that MSI has added Wi-Fi even if it’s the older Wi-Fi 6 standard and not 6e.
