BIOSTAR Z590I VALKYRIE – Overclocking

This BIOSTAR Z590I VALKYRIE is built around  Intel’s new chipset , the Z590. This motherboard retains the   LGA-1200 socket from the   Z490 chipset which will allow you to reuse your cooling system if you wish to  upgrade  your configuration. As a reminder, the   LGA-1200 socket is different from the LGA-1151 since we go from 1151  pin  to 1200  pin  at the  socket.

ASRock X570S PG Riptide – GinjFo

We have a solid platform for gamers. It perfectly meets the needs of the latest titles without worrying about the level of graphics settings. With everything at maximum, the framerate in 1440p is between 95 and 163 frames per second which is perfect. We consider 90 frames per second to be the upper limit for high end hardware. The switch to 4K has consequences since the number of images per second drops. We have a framerate between 62 and 112.2 fps. The results are still positive, we remain above 60 images per second.

This benchmark is based on the classic ROG MAXIMUS XIII Extreme. With one difference, the presence of a monoblock bundle. This one also bears the reference EK-Quantum Momentum ROG Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial D-RGB Plexi . We are on a motherboard with an LGA1200 socket on the Intel Z590 chipset . It is therefore able to accommodate Intel Core processors such as the Rocket Lake-S: i9-11900K and the i5-11600K that we tested as well as 10th generation CPUs such as the i9-10900K or the i5-10600K . It accepts DDR4 memory up to a frequency of 5333 MHz (OC) for a total capacity of 128 GB on four slots. Good point, the rear connection offers two Thunderbolt 4 ports.

ASUS ROG Maximus XIII Extreme is the flagship of the Maximus XIII series among, so to speak, classic motherboards. There is also a version of Glacial , which differs not only in design (it is made in white), but in the cooling system – its design uses a full-coverage water block, a cooling processor, its power subsystem, a network controller and an SSD-drive, as well as a chipset. And from its predecessor in the face of ROG Maximus XII Extreme, the novelty differs in general in everything, since the requirements of the 11th generation Intel Core processors are radically different from those of the 10th generation. What does the manufacturer offer us and what can be done about it? Let’s find out now!

To come back to the model to which we are going to devote this article, the ROG Strix Z590-E, it is currently available at 399 euros at LDLC while the Hero version is available for 512 euros and the APEX version at 549 euros. We can therefore consider that this Strix Z590-E represents entry level in the “Republic of Gamers ” series even if my “F” version is still 50 euros cheaper by ignoring certain options such as the led debug screen . On the other hand, by looking a little, it is available at 329 euros at Alternate and there, it is a very interesting price!

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.

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.

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.
