Gigabyte B560 motherboard: Aorus Pro AX, is a high cost motherboard that can make many people only see the price; Usually for this price, you'll want the Z590 motherboard or similar motherboards that allow CPU overclocking. However, if you do not plan to overclock the CPU, but really want to get the fastest possible RAM speed, then this motherboard may be for you-its maximum memory frequency of 5333MHz is the fastest on this page. Most importantly, you can get WiFi and a pair of additional smaller PCIe slots in the form of PCIe 3.0 x4 and a PCIe 3.0 x1 slot.

Buying

on Amazon Unlike graphics cards, different third-party AIB versions may have major differences in performance and price, and motherboard brands do not differ much in terms of professional quality. There are some differences. For example, ASRock does not have the best record in VRM (Voltage Regulator Module), which means that they are not the most suitable for overclocking, but in general, you only need to pay attention to the specific specifications. Any board model you are looking at and the features that come with it.

What is confusing is that there is no doubt that the B550 motherboard is not the previous version of the Intel compatible motherboard (this honor is attributed to the B460, you can read more about it below). The B550 motherboard is actually an AMD compatible motherboard designed for the AM4 chipset, and its predecessor is the B450. So if you are looking for an Intel B series motherboard, look for a motherboard that ends in 60, and if you are looking for an AMD motherboard, look for a motherboard that ends in 50. Both sets of

motherboards represent that the two chipsets are in an intermediate level in terms of performance, which is lower than Intel's Z590 series and AMD's X570 series. They represent the category "enthusiast" or high performance. Series B plate B is generally considered to represent "commercial" grade performance.

In terms of the actual performance difference between the two, the AMD B550 motherboard is a

B460, increased memory overclocking, some PCIe 4.0 support (although it's actually limited to one or even two GPU slots and an SSD compared to the more expensive Z590), 2.5GB of LAN, and WiFi 6 enhancements Please see our B560 and B460 for more information on this topic. The key difference between the

B560 motherboard and the more expensive "enthusiast" Z590 motherboard is that the cheaper motherboard lacks CPU overclocking support. Since the B560 is a mid-range motherboard, we think this is not a disadvantage. Ultimately, if you want to build a gaming PC in this price range, then you'd better spend your money on better graphics cards rather than paying an extra $ 100 and $ 200 for improved cooling solutions and more expensive motherboards, because in the end there will only be a maximum performance difference of 35%. If you want to build a workstation focused on CPU performance, then you might want to look elsewhere.

Before deciding which one to buy, you must first determine whether the B560 motherboard is the right motherboard for you and what you want from your build.

If we take into account all the points we discussed before, the B560 motherboard is best for people looking for mid-range gaming PC builds without CPU overclocking. This motherboard can be perfectly matched with any product of the Intel i7 series, for example, it can provide powerful features with value for money for CPUs such as Intel 8 corei7 11700.

wants a platform that can provide dual use for workstation tasks, for example) If your budget is so tight, it's better to choose AMD instead of Intel and choose an X570 motherboard with a 5900X or 5950X CPU. For others just looking for gaming gear that won't break the bank, stick with the i7 CPU, B560 motherboard, and spend more money on graphics cards. Form factor

US M5 GMP slots 44US ASLUS motherboard has a very B560 GMP slot loading. impressive and adopts a smaller form factor design. The required PCIe 4.0 x16 allows you to connect the GPU, and there is almost nothing more important than that, especially if you are looking for a smaller PC build; If you are looking for SLI equipment, look elsewhere. Six SATA ports should suffice, and support for Thunderbolt, as well as HDMI and DisplayPort is a welcome addition.

As far as M.2 slots are concerned, there are sadly only two in total: a PCIe 4.0 and a PCIe 3.0, which can be a huge disadvantage for those who wish to operate multiple SSDs, but for this size it is not surprising. the plate. Unfortunately, a single USB 3.2 TypeC port is only Gen1, but beyond that, the USB port coverage is impressive for smaller motherboards. The two biggest advantages of the

board are compatibility with WiFi, especially the 5000MHz high-capacity memory speed, which gives the 4 128GB DDR4 DIMM slots the largest memory overclocking limit. Awesome B560 Micro ATX motherboard!

ASRock B560 The design of Steel Legend is relatively simple, just as you would expect from a motherboard at this price point. The PCB on the board is black and the heatsink has a gray houndstooth effect. It may not be to everyone's taste, but it is relatively inelegant.

Although VRM is a relatively weak point of ASRock motherboards, unless you overclock your CPU, this is something the B560 cannot do and is not a problem. However, one aspect that can be overclocked is the speed of the RAM, for which this motherboard provides excellent coverage, up to 48000MHz.

Although the graphics card has only one PCIe 4.0 slot, this is not a problem for 90% of users, who are unlikely to run a dual GPU configuration. Ideally, a single M.2 PCIe 4.0 slot can be equipped with a second slot, but you can use at least 2 PCIe 3.0 slots. Most importantly, you can get all the ports and plugs you need, including four DIMM slots, up to 128BG of DDR4 RAM, six SATA ports, a large number of USB slots, a DisplayPort port and an HDMI connector, And a traditional PS/2 connector. The lack of WiFi may be the reason most people don't like the board, but if it's not a problem for you, then all things considered, it provides a huge investment!

Only one M.2 PCIe slot is used for the other 4440 SSD boards of the B 4440 SSD 40 40 SSD board. This is very similar to the previous Steel Legend board, the only two differences are the VRM (voltage regulator module) and the available USB port. For all other specifications, please refer to the comments above to know which is your money. Buy it yourself .

This cheap PRO4 motherboard actually has two more USB ports and four additional USB 2.0 slots than its more expensive counterparts, but it only has one USB 3.2 TypeC Gen1 port, and Steel’s two USB ports 3.2 Legion TypeC Gen2 ports are in contrast. This is largely because of how important your personal needs are!

Finally, the 8-phase power supply design of this cheaper motherboard (in contrast to Steel Legend’s Dr.MOS 10-phase power supply design) means that, for example, if you plan to run an 8-core i710700, it can use up to 200W of power. When pushing to the maximum, it is best to choose Steel Legend. For any CPU with less than this number of cores, such as 6-core Intel Core i510600K or Intel Core i78700K, if you want to save money for other components, ASRock B560 PRO4 4DDR4 LGA1200 is your best choice.
