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.

ASRock B550 TAICHI RAZER EDITION- i2Hard

In this review, we will tell you about an unusual board that was born thanks to the efforts of companies such as ASRock and Ryzer. We are talking about the  ASRock B550 Taichi Razer Edition , which is intended for Ryzen 5000 series processors. We will test with an eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X and a set of G.Skill Trident Z Royal DDR4-4266 RAM. Let’s examine the overclocking abilities of the B550 Taichi Razer Edition in terms of overclocking the processor and RAM, as well as look at the RGB lighting and BIOS capabilities.

ASUS ProArt B550-CREATOR – GreenTech_Reviews

ASUS ProArt B550-Creator is the second representative of the ProArt series among motherboards. The first one appeared last year and was designed to use 10th generation Intel Core processors (and already supports 11th generation). If in the case of Intel, the manufacturer made some compromises, but the heroine of this material uses the functionality of the processor and chipset to the maximum. Yes, this is an “average” AMD B550 chipset, but there are plenty of slots, ports and connectors to build a high-performance workstation for almost any task that does not require a lot of processor configuration. What came of this and are there any restrictions – we read right now.

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.

MSI MEG B550 UNIFY – Hardware-Inside

With the MSI MEG B550 UNIFY, a special piece of hardware has fluttered into the editorial office. Because mainboards with B-chipset were more cheaper mainstream, it is completely different with this mainboard. In addition to the 14 + 2-phase power supply with 90 A voltage converters with powerful heat sinks, there are also four M.2 slots on the board. When it comes to the design, MSI was rather restrained, because the circuit board and heat sink are kept in black. In the following we take a closer look at the mainboard, for which the manufacturer provided us with a test sample.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII EXTREME GLACIAL – Pause Hardware

This new water block is made of pure electrolytic copper plated with nickel in order to prevent oxidation. The coolant is directed by milled paths passing first on your processor, then through the M.2 slot, through the PCH and finally through the vrm. Integrated sensors at the inlet and outlet therefore transmit statistics to the Fan Xpert 4 software. You will always have an eye on the flow rate of your flow as well as on the temperature of your liquid. Finally, a small addressable RGB touch is integrated and visible through the plexiglass panels located at the ends.

BIOSTAR Z590 VALKYRIE – Hardware-Inside

With the Intel Z590 chipset, BIOSTAR offers a new mainboard series called VALKYRIE, which is aimed at enthusiasts. The VALKYRIE mainboards are available in two versions, the Z590 VALKYRIE (ATX) and the Z590I VALKYRIE (Mini-ITX). Both mainboards want to convince with their good equipment and design. We take a look at the Z590 VALKYRIE (ATX), which stands out above all for its 22-phase power supply design. Accordingly, we are curious to see how well the Z590 VALKYRIE will perform against an Intel Core i9-11900K, you will learn more in our test. BIOSTAR provided us with a test sample for this test.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XIII HERO – GinjFo

Its price positioning is consistent with the key to a leading mechanism in order to optimize its configuration down to the smallest detail. Her dress is worked through a solid passive cooling. It attacks the Z590 chipset, VRMs or even various M.2 SSDs. We also find a nicely distributed RGB and a racy overall look.

In use, the performance is there with a full UEFI BIOS. Asus also offers several “in-house” technologies to simplify its configuration and the implementation of optimization. For example, AI Overclocking proposes to automatically and intelligently boost the processor through an analysis of various parameters including the performance of the processor cooling system.

GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS MASTER – GreenTech_Reviews

Some manufacturers, when developing motherboards based on the Intel Z490 chipset, have provided support for one of the most important innovations of the 11th generation processors – PCIe version 4.0. But it was impossible not to release the updated series of motherboards based on the Intel Z590 chipset for a number of reasons. If visually the Z590 AORUS Master practically does not differ from the Z490 AORUS Master (if you look closely, there are differences, but we are talking about the visual component), then inside the changes are very significant – especially the power subsystem and its cooling system. The first was noticeably strengthened, and the second received an active mode of operation.

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.
