MSI MAG B560M MORTAR WIFI – itndaily

The MSI MAG B560M Mortar WIFI is also worth praising for the competent layout of the elements (there is enough space for installing even a dimensional cooler of the Noctua NH-D15S chromax.black level ), a large number of USB of different versions on the rear panel and light indicators that notify the user about problems with starting ( CPU, DRAM, Boot and VGA). There are no hot buttons for turning on / restarting the PC on the board.

New MSI, ASUS, GIGABYTE Intel Z690 Motherboards Revealed

Starting off with MSI’s Z690 motherboard lineup, we already got to see the Unify-X series which we talked about over here. The new Z690 motherboards include the MSI PRO Z690-A WiFi, MPG Z690 FORCE WiFi & the MAG Z690 TOMAHAWK WiFi DDR4. All three motherboards will be aimed at the entry-level and mainstream segment and are coupled with a range of new features and stunning designs despite being sub $300 US offerings. MSI has further supplemented each board with WiFi which really is a plus this generation. You can also see an impressive power delivery with the PRO rocking a 16 phase, & the Tomahawk rocking an 18 phase VRM design.

MSI MAG Z590-A PRO – Tom’s Hardware

The Z590-A Pro has capable power delivery, three M.2 sockets, 2.5 GbE, six SATA ports, and a unique checkerboard pattern on the PCB. But some sacrifices are inevitable at this price point. On this board specifically, two of the three M.2 sockets do not have a heatsink. The audio codec is dated, and there’s no included Wi-Fi (although there is a Wi-Fi model, for a bit more). But in this price range, these kinds of limitations are to be expected.

MSI MEG Z690 ACE Teaser

The MEG Z690 ACE appears to introduce a new design scheme with die-cast metal mesh rear I/O shrouds, and a gold+black trim. The I/O shroud design is interesting as it lets the VRM heatsink underneath breathe better. The silver-white MPG motherboard is possibly the MPG Z690 Force. MSI is probably trying to get this to rival the ROG Strix-A SKU by ASUS. The third teaser, of a brushed gunmetal shroud, is likely the MAG Z690 Tomahawk. Like most other brands, MSI appears to have an extensive lineup of Socket LGA 1700 motherboards with DDR4 memory slots, although boards with DDR4 are restricted to the MAG and entry-level PRO series. The mid-tier MPG and enthusiast-segment MEG series boards only come with DDR5.

MSI MEG X570S ACE MAX – Wccftech

Touting it as the X570S (S for Silent), one of the main features of the new motherboards is the lack of active cooling solution on the X570 PCH. Several users had requested their respective favorite brands to offer fanless motherboards and well here they are. Rocking brand new designs, features, and improved power delivery, the X570S motherboards are finally available and today, we will be taking a look at MSI’s flagship X570S motherboard, the MEG X570S ACE MAX which is priced at $449 US.

MSI MAG X570S TOMAHAWK MAX WIFI – Tom’s Hardware

MSI’s MAG X570S Tomahawk MAX WIFI is, as you might guess, a refresh of the X570 Tomahawk WIFI. For $289.99, the X570S  model iteratively improves on the previous board, while ditching the chipset fan, and makes a compelling option to build your budget/mid-range AMD Ryzen-based system around. It offers users the latest in audio and Wi-Fi capabilities, along with capable (though not updated) power delivery.

MSI MPG X570S CARBON MAX WIFI – Hexus

Here is the £290 MSI MPG X570S Carbon Max WiFi. No surprises in learning it has similarities to the X570 Gaming Pro Carbon WiFi, but credit where it’s due, MSI has changed the aesthetic and a number of key features in this transition.

Chief amongst these improvements is greater heatsink coverage, that lack of chipset fan, and RGB lighting across two sections. LEDs beneath the Carbon name on the southbridge heatsink are clearly visible, which isn’t ideal. MSI has done a much better job on the three-sliver lighting on top of the main VRM heatsink as the LEDs are hidden away.

MSI MPG B550 GAMING PLUS – Hardware-Journal

The MSI MPG B550 Gaming Plus is not only the cheapest motherboard in the series, but also the cheapest ATX gaming motherboard from the manufacturer. Since it is actually identical to the MSI B550-A PRO, you can ask yourself the question “What makes a gaming mainboard anyway?”. If you look at the differences between the two boards, a mainboard is only suitable for gaming if it has a cool look or lighting.

MSI MAG Z590 TOMAHAWK WIFI – Tom’s Hardware

With all of its shrouds and large heatsinks, the board looks like it’s ready for business. All (three) M.2 sockets and the chipset sport a basic heatsink, while the left VRM bank uses a large heatsink that reaches out over the rear IO. Thankfully, most of the white/grey stenciling we’re used to seeing has been done away with. If you’re looking for an RGB light show, you’ll have to add that yourself, as the only RGB illumination is around the chipset area. In the end, the updated appearance should work with more build themes than previous versions.
