MSI MAG X570S TORPEDO MAX – Hardware Journal

The board presented today can score with a price of around 200 euros (as of May 2022) and even if the AM4 socket will soon be replaced, AMD has once again underlined how much potential this has with the presentation of the new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D platform stuck. But before we get into the motherboard, a quick recap of what the buyer can expect inside the box. In addition to the usual accessories such as instructions, CDs, stickers, cables and screws for the M.2 slots, MSI also puts a USB stick in the box with the mainboard.

The MSI X570S Carbon EK X is a special motherboard—as you’ll be able to tell at first glance. It’s nearly identical to the regular MSI X570S Carbon Max, but adds a water-cooled monoblock from EKWB in place of traditional VRM heatsinks. Coming in at $499 to $549, the EK X variant asks a hefty premium over the $319-$339 air-cooled Carbon Max. (The majority of that cost being the monoblock itself.)

MSI MPG X570S CARBON MAX WIFI – Hardware Journal

The MSI MPG X570S Carbon Max WiFi is equipped with the X570S chipset and can also be used with the latest CPUs such as the recently introduced  AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D bypass. In contrast to the somewhat outdated AMD X570 chipset, the board presented here has received the “S” version, which enables the mainboard manufacturer to cool the PCH completely passively. In terms of size, it is a normal ATX mainboard, so it is compatible with most cases on the market.

MSI MEG X570S UNIFY-X MAX – Hardware Mag

In addition to various features for overclocking, the motherboard can also come up with fast interfaces. In addition to a 2.5 GbE interface, this also includes USB 3.2 Gen2x2 (Type-C) with a whopping 20 Gbps and several USB 3.2 Gen2 ports (Type-A) with up to 10 Gbps. A total of six PCIe Gen4 ports with Shield Frozr Heatsinks allow a rich mass storage equipment and the best possible cooling of high-end SSDs for lasting high performance. When it comes to cooling, the Unify-X Max pursues a coherent overall concept, because the PCH (“Platform Controller Hub”) of the X570S chipset also dispenses with active cooling and relies on a large-area heat sink.

Unlike its sister with the Z690 chipset, it maintains the ATX dimensions of 305 x 204 mm , with black being the color chosen for the PCB and gray serigraphy. We have well elaborated changes in the shield of the external connections and in the chipset as well as in the heatsinks for M2. The heatsinks for the VRM are kept in black, which is the base color of all the heatsinks and trims. To give it more color we also have obliquely brushed gray. Behind we also have some small heatsinks for the VRM with thermal pads.

ASRock X570S PG Riptide – TweakTown

The X570S PG Riptide offers support for Ryzen 3000,4000 and 5000 series CPUs all on the AM4 socket. Memory support includes DDR4, 2133MHz to 5000MHz across four slots at a max capacity of 128GB. CPU power design is 10-phase 50A, Dr Mos; plenty for overclocking the likes of the 5600X and possibly 5800X as well.

For connectivity, we have one PCIe 4.0 slot shielded at the top, followed by two additional slots coming off the chipset at Gen4 as well. Storage connectivity includes six SATA III connections and two Hyper M.2 slots for Gen4 NVMe drives. Audio has had corners cut with the ALC897 being deployed on this motherboard. However, LAN has been upgraded to the Killer E3100G platform with 2.5Gbe capability.

MSI MEG X570S ACE MAX – TweakTown

A few of the key ingredients in this refreshed motherboard come in the form of its thermal capabilities. This includes an enlarged chipset heat sink, full thermal armor for the m.2 slots, and improved heat pipe design for the VRMs. While discussing increased cooling for the VRM, we should also note the new 16+2 power design, an all-digital direct design that uses 90A smart power stages.

On the hardware front, the MEG ACE Max is an AM4 socket, X570 chipset design. This offers a wide range of compatibility with 3000,4000 and 5000 series CPUs. Memory is supported from 2133MHz through 5400 MHz, DDR4, with four slots available.

MSI MAG X570S Tomahawk Max WIFI is a top-end product, and by definition it cannot be cheap. Even despite the fact that the passive CO used here noticeably heats up, and there is nothing supernatural and original on the board (in relation to interfaces, functionality, etc.).

Not in favor of MSI MAG X570S Tomahawk Max WIFI and the fact that more and more budget motherboards are compatible with Ryzen 5000 processors, which means there are not so many reasons to choose a profile product in 2022.

MSI MPG X570S CARBON EK X – Tom’s Hardware

The X570S-based board also updates the design aesthetic on the board’s bottom half, eliminating the chipset fan and going with full-coverage heatsinks/shrouds over the M.2 sockets. The ribbed lines run diagonal and are a much more premium look than the original X570 Gaming Pro Carbon. The X570S Carbon EK X sells for $549.99, which is on the high side for an X570-based motherboard. That said, it’s still one of the easiest and least-expensive ways to get into watercooling your PC.

The use of the hot AMD X570 chipset in motherboards for the AMD AM4 platform is reflected in their overall design, in which manufacturers use active cooling of the chipset. However, now on the market you can find motherboards based on the updated AMD X570S chipset (the name still uses AMD X570), which has lower power consumption and for which, as a result, the use of passive cooling systems is sufficient. These include the ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING WIFI II motherboard, which, as the name suggests, is part of the ROG STRIX gaming series and offers users very good features.
